softs have a bit more fade and fight out of annys a bit more. but i also think the softs have more glide and are downright better. but that's my opinion.

The Anode is HSS enough that it can easily handle the same amount of power is the Ion. And the Anode won't come back if you get the right amount of snap. Anode is to Axis as the Ion is to the Vector.

Softs require a little more spin on putts than mediums. The rest is just opinion. Some people say softs driver better, some mediums. But it seems like everyone has come to the conclusion that is the first sentence in this post.

When it comes to grip too, especially in cold weather, I think softs are preferred.

This. I'll take a soft in cold weather for sure. I prefer medium Anodes to softs, but in cold I'll use softs for the superior grip.

So, are the softs more comparable to gummy champ plastic? I always assumed they were more flexible than the mediums.
