Speaking of which, when I go pro....
Just sayin', they make one of the best driving putters ever conceived. So why not make a driving driver...

HA! great response. As soon as I saw the TM I figured what was coming (you don't do graphic design for a living and know the silly ins and outs of TM and circle R's). And you delivered, but I'm sure it wouldn't be a difficult thing to figure out. Right idea johnson, do you have an ion you would like to contribute to the experiment? All the one's I have get used

(NOTE: I only have one and its my fiance's)

I had the idea in my head before the birth of the Ion, the weight of the aerobie ring is all the way to the outside. MVP, make the worlds farthest flying disc golf driver and you will rule the sport.
The thing about the aerobie ring isn't just the weight distribution. It also has to do with where you generate your lift. The ring generates it on the inside edge rather than the outside in order to keep the center of pressure closer to the middle of the disc.

now if it was an MVP putting driver I might have believed him sometimes mids and drivers make a good choice for putting.

Are you just perpetuating DGR stereotypes of DGCR right now?

huh? nah, I'm just perpetuating the idea that this dude was a knob for lying. I'm really not sure what the DGR crew thinks of me. As a matter of fact I don't know what the DGCR crew thinks of me and frankly. I don't care what either thinks, I just chill out on both site.

And pretty much the most important thing is how thin the thing is compared to any disc. It cuts the air with ridiculous ease compared to any disc on the market.
