Somebody want to go into detail more about the magic Ion putt? I thought my putting was improving, but trying the two I have now out, my putting is all to hell with them.

I get my best results with Ions giving them some spin, keeping the disc flat not hyzer or anhyzer, and putting straight at the chains rather than trying to hzyer it in from the right side.

I tried putting with the medium ION but had to aim right of the chains because of the fade it has with lower spin. Especially at 30-40 ft. out. My form trying to compensate for that fade by putting a touch of Anny depending on how far out I was. Never consistent... Some good days...mostly brutal. You've heard this before but everyone has their own approach. I'm sure after 3000 putts with these you could be half as good as Mike C. I was coming from Aviars when the ION came to town. Big adjustment for me.

I forgot what the question was.....

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.
I just saw this video on youtube. Nate Doss in slow motion.It looks to me that he's throwing some MVP discs..or some type of Discraft prototype that has a molded edge. Maybe i'm wrong.

I don't see anything but Discraft discs. Nothing has an overmold.

A couple of those drivers looked suspiciously like gl plastic.

But on a totally unrelated note: Ions are terrific straddle putting putters. My confidence is at new levels, but now I'm gonna go fudge it up by trying out the fudging anode. MVP is really boofing me with this new anode business

Yea, that purplish one looked like Ti, he threw it twice in the video.

And I think he foot faulted on his last throw. His foot was on the edge of the tee pad, but fell off of it mid-throw.
