Once you get the ridge to do it's initial break in(the rim gets compressed together real dense and shiny, then the area where your thumb normally sits on the flight plate gets a little higher) it glides quite a bit more. It still likes a lot of spin on further putts but it's much easier to judge than putters with more glide.

Ya, I'm a big fan of the Anode/Ion combo. I have a medium Proton Ion for (push) putting, and a medium Neutron Anode for putter driving.

Well, my shop had plenty of Eclipse Ions mediums but no Anodes so I'm ordering one online.

I felt up the Ridges but even the medium is wayyyyyy to soft for me.

My vote is for a Marino Aviar, or neutron Anode if feel is not that much of an issue.

The medium eclipse ions I felt in the store today were not quite as firm as I'd hoped and they seemed to be almost slightly bowed in/convex. I'm hoping the neutron medium plastic is a hair firmer.

How would any of you compare the neutron MVP putter plastic to say a medium gateway or KC pro?

stick with the g wizards. great for pitch putting...watch nikko when he was wizard pitch putter! almost 100% from 27feet and in...and lots of chances for 40 footers without the blow by fear.

I was using my friends soft anode today, i definitely like that disc. Ended up using my challenger most of the time, but i plan on getting the ion/anode combo..most likely in the soft plastic.

I am a pitch putter. I putted with medium wizards for a summer and swore I would never putt without them. Then I got my hands on a Yeti Pro Aviar. The Yeti has more glide and speed. Where the Wizard feels dead in the air, the yeti has better response to "finger spring." I still drive with Wizards, but it's going to take a great putter to knock Yeti out of the bag.

I found a shop about an hour from my house that has a much larger selection than my local hole in the wall. I'm going to ride over there just so I can feel up all their discs.

I called and they've got the exact Anode I want, right color, plastic, etc. The weight is 175 instead of 173 like I usually use but I don't think that will be a big deal. Before I buy it I just want to be able to pick and and actually test out a few (or at least as much as you can in a store).

Listen the this guy, yeti all day
The sunken flight plate makes popping it off your fingers so much easier.
