I prefer concave discs!

I think the ice water is a bad idea, just go with the hot water.

If its an early run eclipse leave it alone. Something about the overmold in the early run causes it to warp in the cold. So I would moth ball it till spring. If kts a later run yeah take the hot water route.

It wasn't as domey as say my saint but definatley not puddle topped. After some reading I have found puddle top to be desireable, however it just wasn't the flight I was used to before winter. Worst case Ontario if the cold/hot water thing doesn't work I'll buy another one. It's not a first run by any means. Just the Golf is Dead logo one. Thanks again for all the replies.

Strictly out of curiosity - is this a Neutron wide phenomenon in cold weather? While I don't do it often, I've played into minus double digits on clear days - wouldn't want to wreck my brand new MVPs.

When I had my discs shipped to fairbanks from tn, it was highs of -30 lows of -45. The discs sat out in the cold for several hrs until I got home from work. The soft protons were so cold they were warped. A couple days sitting in the heated garage and they were back to normal.

Are your other discs flying the same? I know you mentioned the disc changed but your form may have changed after time off as well.

FWIW I have flat and concaved Anodes in both plastics, some came slightly concaved, some warped for similar reasons as OP. All seem to fly the same, and I love the concave flight plate for a putting putter.

How'd the flight change on your Anode? More or less overstable? Any change in glide?

Also boiling water can't melt an MVP disc. It might make it laughably domey like I did to an Axis on accident, but it won't melt it. Just gotta not let it sit too long if adding dome with boiling water, but for flattening a disc I can't imagine running into any issues.

The near boiling water didn't do really anything to the disc. It got more over stable. However last night I was practicing in my back yard and think I have the newer flight pattern down. What is kind of funny is, when I put the boiling water in, I didn't realize it was my dying bowl and it stained a perfect circle around the skull of the "Golf is Dead" Logo, so it kind of looks like a golf ball now.

It's weird that near boiling did nothing, although I've never tried the bowl thing you're talking about. Maybe try putting it on a flat counter with a large weight and leaving it overnight if you want to flatten it. I've used a big pot half filled with water left on top of the disc and it will flatten that mofo.

Although, you may be on to something with the puddle topped anode. I bet it'd be like a Yeti anode, which could be kind of nice for grip, especially if it's your putting putter. That sounds weird, "putting putter" but you know what I mean.
