Keep in mind, Mike C tried out Ions twice before finally switching from Wizards to Ions. Putting is all about feel, so it'll take a while to actually start really feeling if you like it or not.

I might buy one or two of the first runs, but I really doubt I'll really try them out for putting duties until they come out with softs. Since it seems like a less stable but faster Ion, I'm wondering how fun they'll be drive with.

I didn't realize the opaques were any different in terms of flight. I picked up 2 white blanks recently, my first Ions, and have been having fun with 'em. You think they're worth holding on to for the time being? I have no idea how many were made or if people will be geeking out for these things in a couple years because they're nice for dying or they fly special or w/e.

I'll be giving the Anode a go either way and probably picking up a new Ion while I'm a the shop anyway.

I'm just asking because there are not a lot of players at my park that use MVP and if they knew about it or had someone to promote the discs they would probably gain more revenue from some new customers. There are only two of us that I know of that throw MVP discs....out of an entire park filled of DGer's...not good.

Probably don't fly much different than the other new ones unless you have some of the early opaque Ions where the bead was smaller.

They seem pretty overstable at low speeds to me, but they hold nice, loooong lines, and they're dead flat.

The really opaque Ions (color comes from pellets rather than dyes) seem to have cooled with really low shoulders and flat (sometimes slightly concave) tops. The difference is mainly feel as they are lower profile. Flightwise I think they come out of the hand a little faster and lock onto straight a little better as well, however I don't think they glide or "float" as well at low to medium speeds.

Yea, you might want to stash those blanks away for a while. I have two, and I regret throwing one of them even as a practice thrower. People love dying them, and they're OOP, so stashing them away for a rainy day might be smart(Or sell them to a disc dyer).

The opaque Ions don't really fly any different than the production, unless you have one with a textured bottom. The two blanks I have don't have the textured bottom.

I will trade you new Anodes for your white blank Ions.

Well the two options are: throw, or stash. Not sell now and ship them away never to be seen!
