The exact reason I will be at least switching my driving putter to an Eclipse Soft Anode when they come out.

Yeah I agree with you two, the white overmold really makes the colors pop. Bright red and green eclipse discs are pretty damn easy to find. Even my dark blue eclipse Vectors stand out pretty well in tall grass because of that bright overmold.

Tossed some medium glow anodes around today and they're smooth as butter. Convinced me to keep an Anode in my bag for driving duties along with the Ions I just put back in there. I think I just need to get over my reservations over carrying two putter molds because they compliment each other quite well from what I saw today.

I can't wait to get some of these Eclipse Anodes. Right now I am approaching with Opto Pures but i'd love to get it out of my bag so I have all MVP approach discs.

So, I'm interested in an Anode. Should I get Medium or Soft? I'm currently using a JK pro Aviar and like that softness, but firmer is always an option. I don't care for any softer.

I'd go for the medium in that case. It has some flex to it but you can't fold it in half like you can with the softs.

Yeah, I don't want a taco. I'm afraid to throw discs that soft. They just flop out of my hand.

Softs are not that floppy. In heat the mediums are perfect firmness, IMO, but don't grip the chains as well as softs.

you can fold softs in half, but not that easily. Softs are in no way shape or form floppy and in my opinion is the perfect stiffness for putters...at least in my case.

I carry mediums, but use them mostly for drives. Are you looking for a putting putter or a driving putter?

I'm a firm believer in mold minimalism as well (big surprise there) but the Ion and Annode compliment each other very, very well. I throw the Ion in the open field more because I feel I can put it on a straight throw a bit better. The Annode comes out for wooded shots, lower shots, or shots where I need the disc to finish right.
