As I said before, I picked up two Anodes today. One orange 168, and one violet 175. (I don't know what it shows up as blue in the picture.
Like discspeed said, these feel a lot shorter in the hand than the Ion. The bead on them, even when not sitting next to an Ion, is very very small, and feels almost nonexistent.
I was able to putt with these things for about 45 minutes, and they are superbly sublime! (To me at least) They have so much glide to them compared to the Ion that I was shooting over my basket at first. Their lack of fade was mind blowing. I had to completely readjust my aiming point that I have with my Ions. Even after only 45 minutes, my confidence range increased by a good 10' and my jump range increased by 15. Have I said the glide on these things are insane? Well, in case I didn't, it's insane! I did both push putting, and spin putting, and the results were great for both. I even did some off hand putting to test out on even less spin and they were still going straight as an arrow!
I had just enough space to test these things on some 75-120' nose up, slow spin approaches. They definitely had some fade towards the end, but much later and not nearly as hard as my Ions. (Both 2nd runs and 3rd and 4th runs.) I did both BH and FH approaches and they flight of the disc was mesmerizing.
Comparing the Anode to the 2nd run Ion specifically, the Anode has a much smaller bead still and are less stable for sure.
I probably won't be able to get out and do any driving with these until Friday, due to work, but seeing the results I got with putting these things, I'm expecting these to drive with just as great of results. They are making a very hard case at taking over the main putter slot, I just need a little more time with them, and once soft Anodes come out, it's going to be game over.
