Don't worry about me, that was friendly...I'll be a shmuck if I was offended

Premium plastic is the best argument there...and the profile of the Anode/Ion isn't the best for anti-roll. That said, if you can't adjust for it with your style/power, or if your ground surface and slope (or wind) just facilitate rolls, then the disc just doesn't work for you and you need to find something else.

I think most people have figured out that MVP isn't some wild new awesome thing that trump all other discs out there - they're nice discs but they're just ordinary discs for the most part with a notch of extra quality and a nice appearance. It's just kinda silly how people will hype them up so much - and how some will almost deny any flaws or drawbacks in them through fanboy love. But y'know, most people still look for the arrow to do all the work and don't really put in the time to practice and get to know their equipment fully. Archer is so much more important - every time.

Stop trying to make sense on here. If you're a fanboy, you instantly become an expert.

Ha. That and the exuberance of knowledge that comes from people just beginning their real learning curve in the sport.

Gotta try, though. I'm an optimist and I believe in a disc golf utopia.

I love MVP.. Some call me a fanboy with my love for the Vector and Anode.. I'm alright with the Ion.. I don't like the Axis at all though. MVP makes good discs, they also make bad discs. Just like everybody else. Like anything else I figured out how to use my Anode and make it not roll. It pisses you off when it does but it is just a beautiful disc.

lol. I'm not into the Axis. Maybe just maybe if they would make a grippy plastic then we would be having a different story. Until then, it's a bad disc I think. The Ion just doesn't feel good for putting and it's a putter lol. I can do everything the Ion can do with an Anode.. Actually everything plus. MVP is a great company though. I sport a MVP/Innova/Discraft/Latitude 64 bag.. & a vibram mini.

Ignorant kids... NO disc is a bad disc, they just aren't right for you. I find it fascinating that people can't wrap their head around this.
