Have one and it works great! I have witnessed to many spit outs though and no longer use them for putting.

I have seen just as many spit outs with, magnets,xd,challengers and aviars. I love my ions I just ordered to more, soft proton 173g UV Blues. That will give me 11 in total
3-2nd run mediums
1-2nd run soft
1-3rd run soft
2-proton mediums
2-proton softs

How do you distinguish a UV Blue?

Yep, mine is a soft proton.


These MVP discs feel great. I will probably get some to fill my mid slots at some point.

I haven't been seeing any spit outs other than bad shots. They go where and how you throw them. Throw it badly and it flies badly. I know this much, I landed so many long putts yesterday, it wasn't funny....it was freekin AWESOME!!! Ions are in my bag to stay.

The UV blue are the new translucent runs, it looks almost clear in door and in the sunlight it is a glow bright blue

I'm on the hunt for a mid 160's Soft to audition for putting. I putt with a 171 S and it glides just a touch better than my 175's, but my 164 M has much better glide than any 170's Ion I've thrown. I just can't get used to putting with a stiff putter, I've always used putters that had a bit of flex to their flight plate.

The 164's are pretty fun to throw. they are definitely more touchy, but it's not the disc, it's the person throwing them. If you throw them clean they'll fly exactly how you want them to and have very impressive glide, but if you mess up your throw with a little anny or something, even on a 30' putt they'll tell you that you messed up. Even if I didn't end up putting with a 164 S Ion should I find one, I'd use one after a bad day of putting to clean up my form.

Yeah why would anyone buy like 5 of em, when you can buy like 10 of em?

It's probably good I don't have a larger bag or I'd probably roll around with 4-5 in my bag at all times. I have an unhealthy obsession with putters.

I got mine from hazard discs, but it's a medium. They may have a few light softs.
