I have a feeling these are going to be pretty stable. I should get to throw them tonight and report back.
I got some putts and throws in tonight with my new Ions. On drives they flew a lot like the last smooth bottom run of softs--much more HSS than earlier runs. They seem to have a touch more glide than the opaque colored softs. To get any turnover and good D I was needing to turn them over on my release. I didn't get many full power throws, but I did have one that went about 360' on a really slow helix that started turned over out of my hand. Compared to my mediums the softs drop slower/glide more, hold a slight turn better, and definitely fade more. It may be a little early to say for sure, but it seemed like these are the longest gliding Ions I've yet thrown.

On putts they behaved more different from older softs than on drives. With the stiffer rim I found that although they would take spin like the older softs, they also could perform on a lower spin pitch style. Older softs faded out on this type of shot, but the newer ones look almost identical to the mediums when thrown like this. I think that a lot of people are going to like the way this run putts. I still prefer the feel of the mediums for putting, but it's really hot here now and I could see myself going to these in the winter if the mediums feel too firm to grip.

Is it too late?

I just tried ordering one of these beauties and PayPal wouldn't recognize cstimko@gmail.com as a valid email address.

Did I miss the boat on this one?

It's not even meant to replace a Buzzz, it's way too overstable for that. Hold that thought though, the Axis cometh... >=)

I use same address in Paypal and it works fine. If you still have problem try emailing him.

While out playing today, in the 30 temps we had, I noticed that my soft eclipse had turned hard as a rock, while my 2nd run softs stay almost the same as they do in above freezing temps. The eclipse is my only soft I have in the candy plastic so I can't say for sure if this was just my ion or if it is throughout the candy line.

i think it was just that one, i was out yesterday playing in cold weather and my soft ion felt really good as the sun went down and the temp dropped, granted these arent 30 degree temps but its cold for whats here in texas, i was using a blue candy plastic ion, wasnt a glow but im in the process of getting one, i wonder if MVP puts these discs through temp tests
