I'm already sold on it, but yay for reviews. Certainly has a sleek balanced looking profile. Looks like it wants to go straight to me! I'm most interested to hear how it flies on >10m putts and short approaches but powered up drives and short putts will be interesting too.

I just got mine as well...The same 3 as Mike C from the look of his photos. I will be going to the field this afternoon for some throws, but as soon as I unwrapped the package I took them out back and putted for about 45 minutes. I'm a little out of practice in terms of putting, so I'm not going to analyze my results too deeply yet.

Here are a few initial observations. First of all the Anode is more like a different flavor of Ion than it is comparable to any other manufacturer's discs. On closer examination the Anode feels sleeker and lower profile all around. My release felt really clean with the Anode and by the end of the session the Ion I brought along for comparison was feeling a bit clunky. Putting flights felt slightly faster and straighter than the Ion, most notably at the end of the flight. They remind me of the really flat opaque Ions, only they seem to hold in the air better as they lose speed and fade less on nose up putts. It really flew like a broken in or beadless Ion.

Most likely I will be switching to the Anode for putting, at least on a trial basis. It felt like it was coming out of my hand cleaner than the Ion today and I could see it making longer putts easier. I'll have to wait until I get some more touch with it to really compare it to the Ion in depth.

How did you guys get the Anode before everyone else? Just asking and please don't take offense to my question and ignorance if you see it that way.

They are testers. Trusted by MVP to give them quality feedback.

And, by the way... thanks for the feedback on here too!

We are testers for MVP. They send us discs right at or slightly prior to their release so that we can give people some idea how they fly before they spend their $$.

Mike and I met Chad and Brad of MVP through DGR/DGCR. The don't have a tester program or anything like Vibram, it's just us and a couple guys they know locally.
