Honestly, I don't worry about weights anymore. I just practice with the discs enough until I'm familiar with their characteristics. The last time I really checked weights was with blizzard champion plastic, but I've rid my bag of all Innova and throw MVP exclusively.

Discs;

{
Drivers;
Volt
Amp
Shock
Drivers == Neutron

Mids;
Tangent == Neutron
Vector == Eclipse Proton
Axis == Proton

Putters;
Ion
Anode
Putters == Proton

}

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.
hahaha that was awesome. I was ready for Adam Sandberg to come out.

I saw that you were putting with Proton. I just got a Neutron Ion and like it. However, the plastic is a bit slick in the rain. I was thinking of getting a Proton Soft to try out, hence why I asked about the plastic type. What do you use each putter for and why the need for both. I am bit of a newb with MVP stuff.

I would like to try the soft putters, but idk if I really need them since I like my two.

Regarding each putter's use; I usually make them compete for the "outside-of-the-bag" pocket lol. Whichever putter I am primarily using on any given day, I keep in the pouch outside of the bag, for easy access, and the other putter goes in the bag with the rest of the bunch.

I'll put around with both for practice before a round to determine which one is getting used for said round. I like them both.

If, however, it is windy, I'll more likely use the Ion.

Sidenote: I have a name for the anode; I call him "deGrasse"

It's the only disc in my bag that has a name. Idk why LOL

For my "hand texture", I find the Neutron has better grip in the rain than Proton. When dry, they're both fine. I've never used their soft putters, but that's personal preference because I use a push putt and like hard putters. Also, I like Neutron better for driving and Proton better for putting. Not sure entirely why.

I didn't see any Youtube videos actually describing a push putt specifically. But basically, it's putting without alot of spin on the disc. There's less wrist motion when the disc is released. From what I've heard/experienced, push putting is generally more accurate left to right, but harder to get the distance. Spin putting is easier to go left or right, but easier to get distance.
