Although I have been wanting to try my Ion more for drives and approaches since I know people like it as a driving putter. I have been exclusively putting with my Ion and then using my Challenger for straight approaches, but I want to utilize my Ion more. Still love my FLX Challenger more than anything though
My bud always says that the Ion's roll too much. He put's with an Aviar. I've never seen any difference. I use an anode mainly as it is the closest to my early ION that I don't want to lose. (2'nd run that was made for cam realty, really early)
Landing flat seems to make more of a difference to me.
Trouble is, everyone I play with have Ions now....

Maybe you could spend some of that time playing working on your English instead.



Anyway, I like the idea. I love driving with putters, and it would be good practice on my upshots, especially if I play a bit of a longer course.

I'm wondering if I'd actually be better in a putter only round with a different putter. I sure love my RFF Wizard but I'd bet I'd throw a Magnet better if that was my only disc.

I was at the course yesterday and there was a group of boy scouts playing. Ages from 6-12. All of them were throwing high speed drivers. So I gave each of them a new Wizard and they were having a lot more fun and had lower scores.

I can totally imagine them throwing those drivers left every time. Then they received the Wizard and they threw straight ahead. My wife's been driving with her Buzzz much better than her drivers.
