Hopefully. Maybe a little bit faster.

A disc i could properly grip would be nice. I like all of the three molds ive thrown, but only in proper conditions, would it be possible to have a midgrade plastic and still overmolded? The soft is all right, but ideally id enjoy something with a base/midgrade plastic feel doesnt have to be soft just grippy

is it my imagination or is the bead on the eclipse Ion bigger than on the regular Proton Ion?

I can't say that I've noticed a difference in mine, but it is possible as the glow overmold could shrink slightly differently. I'll have to examine mine a little closer.

that might be what it is Mike
it is pretty minor but I think noticeable

I checked against a textured run, opaque run, and translucent run
it's most noticeable vs the textured run

The 2nd run definitely has a lower set overmold than the rest of the runs (other than the 1st run). It seems to be the opposite with the vectors tho, the bead on my eclipse is smaller than on my proton. So I don't think it's the overmold shrinking differently.

What order MVP needs to go with.

Beadless Putter
Mini's and mini stash spots (feels weird having a Warlock/Wizard stash mini when I throw ions)
Overstable speed 7-9 driver
New plastics. Opaque star-ish and KC-pro ish.

Agree with the need for new plastics. Kc pro feel with a durable outer rubber ring would be sick on the vector. And yea, I'm really looking forward to a nasty driver similar to a vector but longer and faster.

^^ Agreed as well. I'd say some really nice Sticky/Pro plastic good in all conditions. I really like the feel of the Millennium Omega AP.

Can't wait to try out this Anode! I still use a beat up First Run for select shots.
