@ 2.7g overweight, it looks like you got a freak.

I have a 176g N. Anode. I have seen heavier Ions and Anodes but ya gotta hunt for em. Look for stores that weigh their discs. Some weigh more than the factory listed weight.

Never saw this thread before. The first few pages are pretty interesting, and give a little bit of MVP history.

Kind-of... I actually own 3 and have had 1 other one.

While more often than not the weights are pretty close I do find where the stickered weight should have been rounded up or is off even by 2g but is most common with max weights IMO. (tangents too)

Its not a super rare weight IMO but might be in the future given I have mentioned this more than once to Brad and they generally hash out the issues sooner than later.

FWIW all of mine also are from the soft Neutron run except one proton.

I was debating for a while if I was set with the Ion, but it putts well and there's no sense trying a bunch of other putters when I have already found a quality disc.

Chomping those chains!

In the store these looked metallic but zooming the photo shows these small flakes. Its crazy how this run of "sparkle" literally shimmers and doesn't have flakes like this picture shows. Some of the coolest Ions I have seen yet but green!
