Finger spring is definitely key. You need a good amount of it and it has to be clean or the overmold of the Ion will give it a tendency to wobble.

To me they fly pretty much exactly how Josh says they do. I've been working on spin and push putting fairly simultaneously. I've come to the conclusion that I need to be competent at both.
Yeah, Josh sounds like he is doing it the way I found worked best for the Ion. ↓

You need enough clean finger spring to get it spinning, then pitch it with as much neutral nose angle as you can and watch it glide in. It actually wants lift on its putts so treat it like a hovercraft and keep it level.
