At the rate they've been going I'd expect eclipse Anode's within a few months of the release of the regular Anode's. It's very nice having a company do all of their molds in glow for once (At least so far they have, hope that trend continues). I always wanted a glow Predator when I threw them.

It's nice that for once a company has no real reason not to do them in glow. Until now glow discs have flown pretty differently from non-glow discs of the same mold, but due to MVP's process there seems to be almost no difference between the regulars and glows.

There's a difference in the vectors, but the other two not so much.

Have you thrown any current run non-glow Vectors? All I have are domey first runs and a few flatter eclipse Vectors, and they do compliment each other very well...but I'm curious if all Vectors are now the flatter style? I would imagine so but would like confirmation. Kind of like how the Ions were different early on, but current Ions are identical between eclipse and regular proton.

Yes, I have a current and eclipse in the bag. The proton definitely has more fade, but not as much as the first runs.

The eclipse discs trump other companies glow discs in non glow rounds for the visibility factor too. My non glow green vector is so easy to spot but my eclipse axis is just insanely bright. In the tournament at flip I got several comments on my axis and how bright it was in the snow. Even on blind shots I had absolute confidence throwing it and was one of the few players without ribbons on my discs.
On a side note its sad how so very few players had even heard of MVP even here in their own backyard
More advertising is definitely needed

Thanks for the info. I'll have to grab some, that sounds nice. the flatter ones feel much better but there are times I like a touch more fade.

Very true! I love my red eclipse axis for how easy it is to spot, both in a typical round and for my videos. Sometimes I end up throwing my mids on a shot I'd rather throw a driver just because they're so easy to find.

Does MVP's glow plastic have to be protected like other companies glow to last a long time?

It hasn't been out long enough for anyone to claim any problems.

not that it would make a lot of sense to do, but has anyone tried dying the overmold of an Eclipse MVP disc? seems like it might be fun to try.
