bought the ion/anode and my new opto pure to the field today. Man once again the mvp is the winner here for me. I think that the curved inner rim has gotten to my head in a good way. Seems to work with my grip much better than the pure.

On the other hand the eze pures have kicked my anodes out of putting duties loving the shallow pure.

This is leaving me to think that the anode may be getting knocked out of the bag. The ion is taking more and more of my approaches and drives off the tee. Never thought i would be without the anode but its getting close to the b team.

I might just have to show you some more Anode magic I guess! Honestly tho, they are both great discs.

Just got my first MVP midrange, the axis. One thing I noticed right away is that with more weight closer to the edge it feels like I get get more snap than a regular disc of the same weight, and more snap=awesome. I never really thought about the snap benefits of the overmold before holding the disc but I guess this is what MVP is talking about here:


"The process of transferring mass away from the axis of rotation increases the discís moment of inertia at parabolic proportions."


Anyhow, I wouldn't mind a moment of inertia boost on my drivers so I can't wait to hold a Volt!

I finally replaced my first lost axis today before a tourney and trusted it enough to bring it right in. One early shank was followed by a few good drive/ approaches and particularly a sick, tight, 370' drive and birdie on a mostly unbirdiable hole everyone throws driver on. Made the cash by a stroke so I can thank the new axis

^^ This. Mostly interested in a Neutron Axis and Vector.

And I want to know more about how grippy or flexible it is.

What I'm looking forward to seeing in new plastic in order of greatest to least: Proton Volt, Neutron Axis, Neutron Anode, Neutron Ion, Neutron Vector.

Does anyone else find the black rim green Vectors to be very straight flying with little fade at the end?

On the other hand... my white rim (eclipse) vectors seem to be far more overstable and doesnt hold a straight line very long at all..

all my proton vectors fly the same (stright with little fade) and all my eclipse proton fly the same (more overstable) so they are consistent between the two molds

i just find them to be two different discs in my bag.. i go to eclipse for hyzers and i go to my proton for long straight with short bootleg left

Im RHBH by the way.

I'm the opposite. Proton is more stable than Eclipse. In my experience the stability depends on the dome. More dome = more stability from what I've found.
