Sorry I'm late to the party, haven't been on in a few days...

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly. Click here to see how YouTube videos should be embedded. There could also be a technical issue that's not your fault. Click here to view the video on YouTube's site. If this link doesn't work, you did something wrong.

Haven't thrown a soft yet, but this is exactly what I expected my bag to look like once i threw the mediums. Can't wait for softs!

I've been playing a few rounds with no Ions in the bag to see how these do on putts and drives. Very accurate and excellent glide. These are probably the most accurate and easy to control discs I've thrown. The extra glide is nice for shorter shots, especially on hyzer lines. These hang in the air on a hyzer throw longer than Ions do. Held a straight line on max power throws no problem at all, and is useful for shaping a lot of different lines for drives in general.

If you've seen the Anode Testing video I did, playing the same course with my softs, the first time through I drove the 170g green 10' behind 8's basket on a hyzer line, just a bit short of an ace run, then put the same Anode 2' behind the basket on #9 throwing a tall, hard turning anhyzer. Like the Axis I feel like this disc has extremely little learning curve...it's just very precise and controllable and responds well to however you try to throw it.

Good to see you're alive and kicking...I'm absolutely loving the softs. Today I spent a whole lot of time putting in my yard and I think I'm going to try and start putting with the softs. They just seem to glide so much more with just a little pop. I was even putting them side by side with soft Ions and the Ions were noticeably slower.

What is the difference between Medium's and Soft's 'putting' wise.

The regs drop faster and seem to resist spin. The softs, if given a certain amount of spin, go much farther without losing height. The softs also move more in either direction if given a little anny or hyzer.

Hmmm... That's a lot to consider. I might have to pick between a Soft Anode or Soft Ion.. That sucks because I want sooooo many discs haha.

Looks like I'll go for soft Anode for main putting duties. Cannot wait! At least better than say Innova/DC where they have so many putter molds and plastics to choose from!

Been putting in the backyard 50ft and in with sss/ss wizards, Med anode, soft/Med ion, and jk aviars. I know the ion is compared to the wizard, but at these distances the anode and the wizard fly super similar lines while the ions and jks have noticeably more fade. At 25-30 feet I feel like I am aiming slightly right of the pole with the anode and wizards while the jk and ions are much more towards the right side of the chains. Any thoughts?

I do like how the anode takes less energy to make it to the basket.

Friend hit an ace at league today with an Anode he traded someone for right before the round. Glad I wasn't there to see it and break down, due to being so close myself then see someone get it first round with the disc), and not having to pay him $5.
