I'm hurt and offended that you even ask! Just kidding. I'm just wondering if and/or how it compares to the sticking power of my R-Pro Dart?

Every putter will stick if you land it flat.

The mediums are seriously awesome putters! Man, I can't wait until they get released and you guys get to throw them. I like getting protos to test, but its getting to the point where I'm excited for others to try them!

That honestly used to work for me. Key term is used to.

I haven't had any problems with roll aways yet, I've actually been surprised by how well it skips forward if I accidentally worm burn it.

I am not drinking the ION Kool Aid....maybe I just have not learned the disc but it doesnt have enough float for me to usa as a putter. I am a touch putter though..I would guess that for those who like to bang chains with authority this might be disc to have. Doesn t work for me...I am toying with it as an approach disc but have not figured it out yet

in the upper echelon of the sport, one is forced to make love to the sweet trees.

Sorry but I think using “revolutionary” is just a bit of a stretch. The Declaration of Independence was revolutionary. With regards to our community, the invention of DG was revolutionary. Maybe it’s your favorite disc and other’s favorite disc, but what makes it revolutionary? How is it better than an Aviar? Plus, I’ve been hearing similar buzz about the Vibram…

nobody said anything to the contrary. How is the Ion a note-worthy advancement besides its appearance? Is it so advancing that you think all of the up and coming pros will be using them?

I’m not hating on the Ion at all. I’m just trying to get a better understanding and justification of it being called revolutionary and a note-worthy advancement. If all of the top 10 pros picked one up today and started practicing and using it daily, would any of their scores improve in the future because of the Ion?
