I assume the neutron plastic will grip better than proton in the winter, correct?
I plan on getting an Ion and Vector in neutron soon...very soon.
Lemme just go outside and test this out for you...

Oh wait, double fail.

Got in a round today. I purposely threw the Vector for all short drives and mid range duties. As far as flight goes, I didn't notice any huge difference in the Neutron from my trusty Protons plastic. The Neutron caught the wind just a tad more, so you could say it has a touch more glide but its really not that noticeable. I will say that the Neitron plastic is MUCH grippier. Its also quite a bit softer. The temperature was around 45 degrees and it handeled the cold just fine. It didn't skip as much as Protons plastic, but it did roll just the same (which I attribute to the rim plastic being the same) but that shouldn't be an issue for anyone with more skill than I, which isn't hard.

All in all I think its money well spent, and since the Proton and Neutron plastic flies nearly the same, I automatically have three back ups!

I was just out putting a little with my soft anodes. For kicks and giggles I picked up my old stack of star aviar PNAs. Wow, they felt old fashioned, clumsy, sloppy. Then I picked up the anodes again and they felt like a precision tool. Can't believe I used star PNAs for so long.

I just picked up a neutron ion hot pink today. Had time for a quick nine after the grind today. Nice and grippy and i seemed to have more control over the neutron than my protrons. I think that MVP hit a home run with this plastic. May have to snag an axis again to see if i like the new plastic in their mids. But today's round has permanently planted the ion in the bag. s eclipse and neutron for me!!! Still hoping for a more baseline someday from them!!!

MVP will fill out their product line before developing new plastics.

I wouldn't be so sure.

Plastics: Proton, Proton Soft, Eclipse, Eclipse Soft, Neutron
Molds: Ion, Anode, Axis, Vector

They seem to be able to pump out new plastic blends a little easier.

if they could add a chalkier feel to the ion/anode or some new putter blend that would be awesome. I am not knocking these at all its just a wish!!!

I would agree with onemilemore playing with pellets and glue is way cheaper than new molds. But i have no clue what so ever I am just a dreaming fan!!!

I do say where is the eclipse neutron!!! come on reverse storm troopers become a reality!!!!!!

Eclipse is the same whether it's on Proton, Proton Soft, or (eventually) Neutron.

I balked at the idea of an Eclipse Neutron, and I now realize I was an idiot. Eclipse Neutron would (and will) be SICK.

They still have to release the Volt, then release it in Proton, then Eclipse, then maybe Soft...plus release all of their other molds in Neutron Soft if they see a demand. There's plenty left to keep us occupied.

All the while the minds at MVP are conjuring up the next molds. We'll see more molds before a brand new plastic.

Just saw that they have neutron in black. It think that would look awesome. Has anyone gotten any black neutron discs? Are the rims the same as the regular proton discs?

Yep, I have a black on black neutron Ion. Same rim as proton.
