I have a black on black neutron Anode. It is a thing of beauty.

a million times this. if they could make a chalky plastic like DX or Eze for their putters it would be amazing. It would give it superior grip and the overmold would give it a lot more durability compared to other baseline plastics. i would even want this or full production soft neutron before the volt.

I think I'm the only person that thinks premium plastic has better grip than Baseline.

Have you fondled a SSSS Wizard? It's almost like rubber. And I imagine Vibram's rubber is super grippy as well.

I've felt both of those and neither are near as grippy as my eclipse soft Anode...It is easily the grippiest disc (especially in warm/humid conditions) I've ever felt. It would be FAR easier for someone to wrestle a baseline disc out of my grip than my Anodes. They almost bond to my skin with minimal pressure.

The most important thing here is that grip is a very individual thing. I could put a disc on a table and ask 10 different disc golfers to describe how well it gripped. Some would call it slick, some grippy, and others may say it's too grippy. I think hard baseline grips like absolute crap, yet it's probably number one amongst the best players in the world. Should that mean anything to me? Not if the disc feels bad in my hands.

The plastics in disc golf chemically belong to different families. Baseline is a certain type, pro-style plastic is another type, and then the premiums are another different type (apologies to anyone whom I'm stating the obvious to). Each type of plastic has completely different chemical properties. They bond different, react differently at different temps, and a bunch of much more technical stuff I'm not educated enough to speak on. This makes it nearly impossible to put plastic from two different families together the way MVP does with it's two plastics (which are from the same family).

Same here discspeed. I had an SSSS wizard and HATED it. I do not like a chalky feel at all. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion though of course. Putters are like girlfriends...everyone wants something a little different.

Maybe this is why my putter hates me.

So they'd have to create a whole new oversold plastic as well, which in turn would decrease the durability as well. I have a feeling they may/should try this but not for awhile as I think they should expand the line up a bit more.

Even if they could bond the overmold to a baseline plastic I could see separation being a problem. If you hit something hard enough the force will be transferred to the baseline plastic and cause that to warp. I hate baseline plastic anyways Lol. I only carry one baseline disc and it's a tm river for water holes. I find it too hard to grip correctly on release, gl, gummy opto, proton and neutron are my favorite levels of grip.
