I played with my newly acquired Neutron Anode today, a one-disc 9-hole round at lunch. It flew great, but I really don't think I like the rim depth. I'm used to an Opto Pure, and I knew going in that the Anode would be deeper, but I didn't think it'd bother me as much. I'm planning on throwing some more after work to see if I gel with it more. I really liked the idea of an all-MVP lineup, but now I'm fairly skeptical I'd want to drive with their putters. Just personal preference....not a ding on the disc at all.

If you have the time to practice it is definitely worth it to learn to throw the deeper putters. Besides floating more and having a more forgiving stability(clean release), its also bound to help your form all-around.

Ion is even deeper and is my favorite disc. I agree with the post Above deeper rims fix your form issues. I can get an ion dead nuts straight on a low line 300'. It take a lot to get it there but man does it feel good to make those tight tunnel shots! Practice practice.

Ion only FEELS deeper, they are actually both the same.

Made the same switch from pures to ion/anode combo and like others have said it was a good switch, just took time to get a good feeling for them but the flights are much more versatile than the pure and a LOT better approach/putting putters.

Give it time and practice-- the pure is more like a putter buzz/midrange than a real putter like discspeed said, these are much more workable but helped clean up any oat the pure could handle. Ion hates it'

Yeah I throw them interchangeably really don't notice a difference in feel, ions just have a little more low speed fade. Anode drives are laser beamsssssssss.

Yeah, I'm trying not to get too excited about the Axis after just one round, but if it continues to fly the way it did today, it fits my definition of a work horse mid. My Ibex has just a touch more fade than I want (although it is still very workable). And I still cannot get over how far this thing flew... I was in between 275-310 with it and my comfortable mid max is usually 265-280. And this was with a minimized run up as I had poor footing in the snow all day.

And since the Vector was straighter than I expected, I could definitely see myself rocking the Axis/Vector combo. The Axis as my workhorse and the Vector to fly Axis-like lines into a headwind and for anything that needs a meaner finish. I've been planning on discing down soon anyways to work on pushing my putters and mids out further and really want to give these MVPs a good work out, so I might do a few weeks of just carrying the Ion, Vector, and Axis.

I'll definitely give the Anode more of an audition...thanks, guys!

On MVP mids, none of my local shops carry them, so I can't feel them up. Do they have the same sort of concave rim as the drivers? I hope that makes sense. I love the grip on the MVP drivers because it feels ever so slightly concave on the inside, so my fingers sort of lock in better than any other driver I've thrown. If the mids feature this as well, I'd definitely give a Tangent or Axis a shot to knock out my Core.

Yeah they do- core was my main mid along with a fuse and pain but the vector and axis are much better.. Vector is plenty OS for headwind (specially domey ones) but still workable on anhyzer lines etc.. Axis is just money-- much more controllable than a fuse or core which can turn rather unprediably compared to the softer/ more true lines of the axis. Its nice to have 2 mids do what 3/4 discs did before'

You can see detailed diagrams of all the rims on MVP's site -- Tangent page
