So now that I'm back on the train what plastics do you prefer for different anode duties? Putting? Driving?

The first MVP disc to replace my Challenger was the Anode, now i use an Ion instead.. both good discs though, to each his own.

Soft Proton for driving

A lot of people drive with Soft Proton, but putting is very split, some like stiff others like soft. Whatever feels comfortable to you. Also depends on your style, spin putters tend to like soft more, and push/pitch putters sometimes will ONLY throw stiff putters, like me.

I'm a splush putter but more on the side of spin. I straddle putt. I don't like softs on this warmer weather.

I am also wondering what stability difference if any between regular protron and neutron.

You sound like one of the few people who putts similarly to the way I do. I find the softs take and hold spin better, especially at lower speeds...better than any putter I've thrown actually. So it feels very effortless for me with the softs. When I pick up a reg or N Anode and putt it, they feel heavier/deader in the air and I have to compensate with more spin, push, or height. Caveat about the softs though, they are more sensitive to OAT and wind (especially combined). This can be frustrating at first (it was a bit for me) when every few throws or putts you get some wobble. Now that I'm clean they fly like magic and deal with wind just fine.

Straddle putters do not have as much weight shift power as those with a staggered stance, so I've always looked for the easiest disc for me to get to the basket. For me that is a low to mid 170s soft Anode with a decent dome.

For driving I've carried both reg P Anodes and Neutrons. In the end I didn't find that either really added any shots to my game that I couldn't do with my softs. Both take more to get going for me than the Softs, and they fly a tick faster (so better on line drives). Both tolerate OAT better. I just love the slowness of soft Anode drives...Nothing is so straight and slow for so long. It is my favorite disc.

Things calm down and die out then you bring it back up again, that's what I'm talking about.

I agree with that, i miss more putts because of strange bounces and hitting the pole on a perfect put with softs, it has more flex but its like the flex turns it into a bouncy ball sometimes

Hmm, that is exactly the opposite for me. The med bounced around and out, while the softs tended to "grab and hold" the chains better for me.
Possibly due to differences in putting styles?

Edit - I should say that I don't putt w/ Anodes, just drive w/ them now.
