Best driving putter I have.

The best roller putter I have is the 86, though.

sometimes threads are slow, that's okay.

Question though. How much weight does the rubber part contribute to the disc percentage wise? I'm curious because I'm wondering if you just keep the overmold the same weight and change the weighing agent of plastic part or do you try to balance out both?

I'd be very interested to know how much of a gyroscopic effect it would have on the disc if you tried to make the lightest plastic mold possible and focus the bulk of the weight to the rubber rim and adjust that to make weight differences (but I suppose that would make heavier and lighter ones fly drastically different...).

Just some curious thoughts.

These are very good questions. We have spent a lot of time, research, and development in designing our GYRO™ technology. Consequently this information is classified. This information is too revealing, as we want to protect our concept.

just rip off the overmold and weigh it

So what if...

You had a driver made of a light weight plastic, and on the very outside you used a super heavyweight plastic. Kinda the same idea of the ion, but it wouldn't be a big rubber ring.

I had the idea in my head before the birth of the Ion, the weight of the aerobie ring is all the way to the outside. MVP, make the worlds farthest flying disc golf driver and you will rule the sport.
