I think the discussion was more about how some discs can emphasize already existing OAT more than others. It always comes down to the player to make adjustments, whether it is modifying their grip, or trying a disc that fits their style better.

I like the Ion, too, but I had the same problems with the bead. Now I am tossing the Anode. I still OAT it sometimes, but it is not as bad.

But if you have OAT, you are best to own it, blame yourself, then fix what's causing it and move on. it's the same as any other fault, totally correctable once you identify the root cause.

/end OAT rant.

i like the ion
For watever reason, I have trouble throwing the Wizard. I don't get the nice flight out of it like a lot of people do. I believe it has something to do with the bead and the shape of the disc; I can tell my release isn't clean every time I throw it. I throw an Ion fine and get the fantastic overstable, yet glidey flight out of it. It is probably a very small difference that shows itself when I try to throw them 300'.

I guess you could say I blame the Wizard for that, but I won't tell someone not to try it along with the Ion and Anode when they ask about good driving putters.

FWIW, I have the same problem with the Roc, but not the Vector.

Well I took a Volt out today and got a new farthest throw at 315'. Not much but for me it's awesome to have a new max D. Thank you MVP.

Hey, I just got my 8th ace with an Anode! It was a short hole at 168', but I threw that thing on a rope right into the chains!

Threw my best round ever today with a simple Volt-Axis-Anode setup. And while my score was still +1, lines just felt nice and easy. All of these discs are super versatile, and if it weren't for finding out how much of an anny I can get out of the Volt (resulting in an unexpected OB shot), I could have gone under par. Oh well.

Shot of the day came on this hole. The basket is back and to the left, and the Axis held a gorgeous anny line, putting me pin high about 15 feet out.

All in all, I am really excited about my little MVP experiment for the month. Can't wait to get out and throw again!
