I'm in love with the anode, and have had zero problems with it spitting through but "Anodes Law: If it can roll, it will roll."

I'm a Gateway dude for putters (and almost everything else), but those are awesome.

Just bought 3 anodes, 1 medium, 1 soft, and 1 eclipse, all in the navy blue. Can't wait to get them when I get back from Austria and Italy!

Spitouts

I have had several, I mean several spitouts the past week with both my soft ion and anode from various distances, but mostly the easy 10-20 ft range without a lot of power behind the putts.

What makes it even worse, is that I have been hitting the chains dead center. The disc (without hitting the pole) flips up / and falls out the other side.

Is this a common occurance with MVPs softs?
Fyi the temp was in the 90's

I've only had it once, on the worst baskets ever (kingpin) it wasn't the discs in my case tho because the same was happening to vibram, kcs, and whatnot. It could just be your putting style, or a combo of the disc and your putting style. But if it was fine before, and now it's not, I'm going to assume the disc hasn't changed...

I am now accepting "bounce out" anodes and ions. Please send all these defective discs my way for testing to confirm.

I usually do fine with both the soft anode and ion, but the past four rounds have been great throws with bad luck. I usually play two rounds at a time. (one round with ion, one round with anode)
I really like the soft anode an ion and normally in the -5 to -6 range per round with each.
After the first 30 holes, I was +2 with 5 spitouts. I ended the two rounds with a -1 only bc I switched to my Cyrstal Challenger and ended the round by hitting birdies on 4 of the last 6 holes.

I did notice that most of the spitouts were defleted down initially by the chains to this angle /
the fell out the other side.

Should I look into a medium? or just say it wasnt my day and pray they stay the next round lol

I have noticed that softs are wayyyyyy soft in the heat. My mediums ( which are softer for mediums ) work way better in this heat. Hitting the chains at that angle / with a soft i can see the soft flexing right through. The regular anode/ion should remain rigid enough to not flex through the chains. Me and the mvp putters are fighting right now and I have grounded them for putting. Not because of spit outs but because of the humidity and slickness. I feel that the regular mvp's may help, but do not discount a bad luck kinda day.
