Are we talking visual? My mvp discs have tons of superficial scuffs. The flight is exactly the same, my axis has developed a lil turn, but its my most thrown disc and it still is 98% of what it was brand new.

Today my ions and anodes got scuffed up more than i have seen ever. This course was full of roots and rocks all over. Just scuffs no damage other than battle scars.

Odd. Mine has only hit chain and grass. Still seems as firm as a new one but the plate is getting super worn. Perhaps just multiple unlucky hits on the chains. I do have at least 3+ 30-45 ft putts with it. Those connects can do a bit of damage I guess.

That shouldn't do anything. I practice 50+ every other day and it does absolutely nothing to them.

Lets see some pictures? Then we can tell you if it is abnormal or just the candy plastic

I have no idea what MVP discs you guys are throwing but my ions and anodes laugh at being driven straight into a tree with 350' of power. I literally did that to the green Anode in those videos on Sunday and you can't even tell. There is no way a putt is going to do anything at all to these putters, I've canned multiple ~120' upshots with them and at the very worst might have a bit of metal left on the rim but never any damage. Even my old SS Wizards wouldn't get damaged on a 50' putt.

I've been practicing putting an hour or more every day since Saturday with two brand new Anodes and could put them back on the shelf as new.

I'm surprised so many people are having problems with durability. My Anodes , aside from a scuff from sliding across a tree, look fine and fly fine after several months for my proton and I have had my Soft for almost a month now and no damage to speak of really. I usually play about 54 holes a week, and my Anodes get thrown all the time.
