They've told me probably not when I've asked in the past, but that is always subject to change as they could obviously do it if they wanted. That would be very interesting if they did imo. I know the soft Ions glide better than the mediums...

We currently only offer 'Soft Proton' in our putters. Our standard 'Proton' will be in all non putter discs.

So I guess that's a no to the Ion-Axis-Vector package?

I hope the Axis is more of an instant thing for me. The vectors are sorta hit-and-miss when I throw them. Sometimes they'll OAT flutter and turn over, sometimes they'll fly great, not exactly what I'm looking for in a overstable mid. Which is a shame because I liked the Ion immediately, but the Vector kept confusing me

We do not operate on the retail level as we do not want to compete directly with our retailers. However, it could be a great idea if you propose this to them as it could be a mutually beneficial way to sell our discs.

I have a similar problem but the more I throw it, the smoother it seems to become. Pretty sure it's more a problem with me than the disc, though.


On a separate note, I currently own a 168 opaque white, medium Ion. Love that frakkin' disc. I'd really like to pick up an Ion in Proton plastic (really like the way they look and the colors just pop out when lying on the ground making them very easy to find). However, I'm only able to find softs available in that same weight range anywhere near me. I haven't had a chance to feel them yet, but how soft are they? I don't particularly like buttery discs anymore or, more accurately, discs that can flex in your hand when throwing.

They sure are bright, and its technically our same Proton plastic, just new transparent colorants which are standard for our Proton line now.

I wouldn't describe our Soft Proton to be floppy, but rather they have a tacky slightly gummy feel to them. You can flex them but not floppy/flexy. The key is the nice tacky gummy surface feel to them.
