Ion vs Node

I've thrown both of these putters extensively and can also say that the anode is just straight. You can attempt to hyzer flip, it'll just go straight.

The ion on the other hand seems to be much more responsive to angles and lines. Whether or not the bead is what causes this is debatable.

Nevermind the fact that discspeed has forgotten more than we'll ever know about disc golf.

When it comes to the MVP putters, I don't think you can go wrong just throwing the one that feels better in your hand. I have thrown both, I am not good enough to have an opinion that in4d will accept, but I could drive both putters out to 230 feet before I decided on the ion. It simply feels better to me.

Also, In4d's meanness(read:troll-ish-ness) is pretty well balanced by Johnny's...whatever be does, so if we could get some D-nation love in here soon to diffuse the bulldung that'd be swell.

I probably should have followed your lead on this.

Ion sucks, but the Anode throws very well.

Plex has no room to be talking crap about someone's skills. He is barely better than Intermediate with nearly a decade of experience. Even with all that experience, he still doesn't know nearly what he thinks he does.

Haha, I appreciate the support but I'm not too concerned with his opinion of my performance in my first ever tournament. Clearly three rounds is a good judge of someone's skill.

However, I do have an issue with your avi Hammer. Niners all day

I quoted the previous convo on this subject as a reference for someone else who cares. Not to mention we both probably provide some of the best advice when it comes to MVp discs along with MikeC which I'd love to hear chime in as us 3 for sure know what we are talking about while you on the other hand I am no so sure about.

I know how to throw putters and crushed many of them its one of my favorite things to do is borrow putters and drive with them not to mention lots of 1 disc rounds with my ions/anodes.

Sleep on it maybe tomorrow will be a better day, ill go find some quotes saying the stiletto is understable, tensor is not OS, pures are flippy, firebird turns over at 300' ........ And we can start a new thread with your 10 about all the crazy talk on here. Im sure we can find a few of your own!
