I want a Proton Opaque Ion.. Should have been more specific. I have a stormtrooper Ion in neutron plastic which is a beauty. I'm thinking about getting a Stormtrooper Anode also but first on the list is an opaque Ion.

Seriously.... no ION love in here for a year?!

have a feeling baseline ions bring back many old fans in the near future.

I honestly can't recall why I used to live Ions so much, but they sure are popular. It seemed like, for awhile, Anodes were all the rage but now, at least around here, those who used to putt with Anodes have either switched or gone back to Ions.

I wonder what the best - selling MVP disc is? Even with all the new releases the Ion has to be up there...

What are you putting with now? being people buy multiple putters I imagine ION is up there. Kinda like the wizard/challenger/aviar's of the world holding high spots in the overall disc sales market.

Volts has always been a big hit too but the ION for me is a disc which does a lot of stuff very well at most any DG distance. Its not the easiest disc to dial in like a pure/envy but I find it much more workable.

Big Bead Aviars. I switch 'em up a lot but right now I have a DX and a JK in the bag.

Volt. Such a great disc. I bet the Ion sells about the same or more though. I see a lot more newer or less serious players with Ions than I do with Volts.

Maybe I'm talking out my @$$, and maybe it's just my area as well as in Korea but I don't see too many MVP drivers on the courses here but I see a lot of Ions and some anodes. Saw an Envy the other day, too. But mostly people are going for the Ion.

I see more ions than anything else.

MVP is really small in this area. I'm not really sure why.

I've been throwing the Ion for about 3 years or so. I've hit so much metal with them--every part of the basket but in. I've got ~225' field ace on a 540' hole that's a very difficult two (I call that an eagle, nobody deuces that hole). No aces though.

That is, until yesterday! Finally got my Ion ace, and in a league round no less.

I've always putted with Ions; you should see the sweetness that is the worked in black N Ion I pulled out of the box the day Neutron was released. I used to throw an Anode for drives too, but when my P Ion beat into some good understability, I dropped it and roll with a newer Ion and my old one. Three Ions in the bag. If I lost that old P Ion, I would shed a tear.

I stuck with the Ion, and I am now reaping the sweet sweet rewards with a lineup of discs that handle every putter shot possible. A beat Ion is a beautiful thing. Of course, I did get my ace with the newer one...

Totally agree

I can't even leave the ion anymore. I tried a few diff putters this year and they come out if my hand awful. I'm only made for ions now

I've been putting/driving with ions for over two years now. I highly doubt I'll ever switch from the ion for putting duties. I've got too much time invested and love for the mold to even try out a new putting putter.

Just wanted clarification/confirmation from what I've read and searched:
- There's very little difference (if any) with the flight in regards to a proton ion vs. neutron ion (current productions)? The main difference is in feel and durability?
