Eclipse Anodes might be longer than you think, but I am with you there.
I assumed as much on both accounts. I probably won't order anymore MVP until something new comes out.

No kidding though, the Axis is the perfect disc for teeing off on Holes 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. I turn around and tee off with the Anode on 1, 4, 10, and 11. In fact, Hole 12 is the only hole I pull a driver out for.
Isn't hole 12 the very short downhill one? You should let me know if you guys are going to do this so I can tag along and add to the MVP magic!

All right, I'm calm. And I will calmly march my money over to Lat 64 or Vibram if a driver isn't available by June 1. You can talk the talk but I am walking the walk. You try to run an MVP only bag without a driver available. Try showing up at Elm Creek without a driver. I'm not rolling all the way up #18's fairway.

The fact that MVP discs are so overhyped and fungible in the MP makes my defection that much more appealing.

I played there once and it was ok.. I had brought a SS Wizard & Champion Eagle and did fine.. Lots of Pars. I just like the buzzz more. Currently have none that I can use.. I'm going to buy some more.. I won't be buying that next Glow disc till'... Possibly this weekend. Along with a Teebird, and some Buzzz's.. I also am getting some more Vectors. I'm even gonna get a Soft Anode. The Anode def does damage though. I practiced putting in my backyard for 30min today and I decided for long putts to throw a midrange throw with less power.. I was sinking it so many times. BTW my anode is a fantastic roller.. That's not a good thing. lol

I don't see the reason for a 1 brand bag. I like ot mix and match.

What do you guys think the first run Ion auction in the MP is going to top out at?

How you can you be like that for a Driver? Consistency is more important to me. I've bought the same disc from Innova before as a different one and they are totally different. MVP.. Never! That's important to me. I would expect around Early-Mid June. Fairway Driver is important first step though. Also You can't compare MVP with Vibram.. MVP is way better IMO.

Because I can. I have been mixing and matching for years and years. And years. And more years. I wanted to do something fun. MVP produces discs like nobody else. They aren't better, they are just different. Shouldn't MVP promote this? Shouldn't they actually encourage players to throw only MVP?

Yes and yes. Doesn't mean I have to comply. I would love to see a full MVP lineup but it doesn't mean I will automatically throw them (try them-yes).

Your correct on this one, at lease for me. I have been banging this Axis for 3 weeks and the other day I managed to get the Axis to do what I have always though it could do. I am now hooked on the Axis! The Anode came out of the bag because there was just too much overlap with the Ion and carrying less weight is always good.

What your deal? If you're so upset about it why not just switch over now? Seems like you're making a big deal out of nothing. There is nothing wrong with throwing a mixed bag, and I'm sure you know that. But you're too stubborn...
