Huh?

I finally picked up a couple Ions last week and the transition from KC Pro Aviar was essentially a non-issue.

You can probably putt better than most people though and can make adjustments on the fly. I think the Ion likes a certain way to be putted and nothing else, i.e. a strict push putt or lob putt doesn't work as well in my experience.

Hopefully the answer to push/lob putter is the Anode.

Ions work fine for push putting. Not sure why they wouldn't.

Yeah, they work fine, but they are not the first choice I would have for a push putt.

They work fine, but it isn't their strong point. They like more spin.

agreed, the beadless anode will i think be a more reasonable choice for push putters, like myself

They're pretty overstable when they're new and they're so damn durable that I do see how their range is more limited for a lob putter, but even spin putters are talking about how the Anode will be their savior for longer putts and turnover drives. I think aggressive spin putters and less aggressive lob/push putters are basically on equal footing here.

FWIW I consider myself a pop putter/short arm pitch style where I keep my arm in line but still bend the elbow a bit and rely on finger spring and palm push and incorporate more wrist and weight shift for long putts and the Ion works just great!

Sounds like its a pretty aggressive style of putting. I'm not really sure why spin putters are gaucking over the abode tho. I don't really think they'll see much of a difference until they get further out.

I'm not going crazy over it for putting, unless I get it and just love the feel.
