Very correct. Also, nicely engraved just like the Vector. discspeed has a couple on the way (oops, ruined the surprise, sry discspeed!) perhaps he will chime in his thoughts for us I must say, they feel very amazing considering we have eliminated the bottom flash on the bead as well.

I find the texture on the bottom of the disc to be more slick than the straight flat part.

This.

I would consider switching to ions if not for this. We'll see how the new ones turn out.

Is this going to be with all of the ions now, or just the glows?

All new runs of Ions will. I was just proving that the Glow Ion Protos will be the only glows that have the engraving, rendering it impossible to forfeit any Proto Glow Ions.

I am very excited how everything turned out, however, ima let discspeed chime in when he gets his.

I would love to know who and when (ie: what online store is getting the first shipment and when...)

I just posted this on DGR...I guess Chad already broke the news, but just pretend he didn't.

I just got a package in the mail...

It contained 2 new run soft Ions...And they have NOTHING on the underside! There is NO flashing, NO texturing, and NO tooling! I can't believe how good they feel in the hand...absolutely no sharp edges and the new proton plastic feels grippier as well. I got a storm trooper opaque white Ion and a light green colored Ion...The green color I've not quite seen before from MVP. Also, the overmold has the same tooling on it now that the Vector's does.

So now all the Ion lovers are going to have a reason to need to buy some new ones. I'm not sure when retailers will have these, but I can't imagine it will be long...I'm sure Chad or Brad will let us know.

I will be throwing them soon to see how the new run flies.

Some of the new runs with the updated engraving (currently softs) are being sent to some stores now and should be arriving shortly.
