Playin a short course near my house and hit metal off the first two tees with my soft eclipse anode. Then picked it up after hole 2 and saw this had happened.

Still flies exactly the same but I was surprised. By far the most damage I've had an MVP disc take off one throw so far. I looked where it hit and I think it nailed the rough edge of a bolt holding the pole into the sleave.

Oh well, time to try and ace that hole again and get revenge.

Yeah, Im sure it's only 'cause it's the soft plastic but that still looks harsh. I'd be so mad if that happened to my soft anode. Well like ya said, get revenge by acing that SOB

Hell no, don't be mad, do that 30 more times and you get a truly understable anode!

I hope no one already asked this, but how do the mvp plastics wear in? Do they pretty much fly brand new the same as they will for most their life? Or is there a certain break in period kinda like with star plastic? And if there is a break in period, how severe is it? Appreciate the help.

it is my understanding that most mvp discs tend to have very slow beat in stage then they will suddenly change and remain that way for a long time.

My first run axis that is my main mid range was very neutral with a bit of fade at the end for about 4 months of regular play. Not too long ago my axis took a couple good hard tree hits and it as instantly changed into a slightly flippy disc with little to no fade. It has remained that way for the last 2 months even after having a

It looked like the Neutron green was a bit marbled from the pics they had on Facebook. Is that how they look in "real life?" If it is, I'd want some N Ions in that color.

I really don't understand that sort of logic at all, unless the 'sudden change' involves some sort of trauma to the disc.

Nor with mine.

I've had them for a while, and they've basically stayed the same. Quite surprised with the durability.

^This. Stay the same. No sudden change or change at all for that matter.
