I'd like to see a dedicated Aviar thrower try one of these, they look pretty similar.
I haven't heard a date for softs yet.

I am currently putting together some videos. I shot a 24 hole round of shorts at my home course, and threw some extra shots here and there, so I'll have the full round video + a bonus footage video uploaded later tonight.

It will basically hold any line you need. I can crank them hard and flat for a dead straight line, it will hold a hyzer even at 350', and thrown anny it holds the angle of release generally without flipping over any further or fighting out of the turn much.

I'm kind of frustrated with how the putting in the videos turned out, because the flight is amazing for a putting disc, but I just suck with firm putters. It really is a nice putting putter though and I expect a lot of people to switch to them for putts.

Can't decide if I want to try an Anode or an Ion. It's just to hard to choose.

I got a few dozen throws with my 3 Anodes today behind the school I work at before it got dark (too bad they didn't debut in Eclipse...). The Anode is my kind of putter driver...Straight, fast, and glidey. The high speed stability held up to my hardest throws of the day, which felt like about 350'. Despite this I was able to get it to hold very small degrees of anny and work skinny S turns. They held beautiful annies and hyzers. The fade is late yet consistent. I realize it's still early, but I dare say that I like the way these fly a little better than I ever liked the neutral flying Ions.

I have a 171, 172, and 174g. The lighter ones dropped slower, but also seemed to fade a bit more. The heavier one (beautiful cobalt/violet color) is very neutral. In the field I didn't notice too much difference in distance between the Anode and Ion, but I do think the Anode flies farther on lower lines. Overall I could easily imagine my bag with more Anodes than Ions in the near future. And yes, I am drooling imagining how the softs are going to fly.

Tomorrow I should get to take my Anodes to the course.

Sounds pretty similar to my experiences. Felt accurate and easy to throw from the very first throw. Whether or not I end up putting with it I'll definitely carry a few in the bag for drives.
