Yeah. Usually, the softer and more flexible the disc the more LSS it seems to have. The Ion, I hesitate to say has more fade than, slows down quicker than the Anode so it predictably hooks left at the end better.

I personally prefer the S Ion for the shots you're describing but with a little practice and smooth hyzer the Anodes do this just as well I think. I haven't come across a particularly neutral Anode yet personally, not at low speeds anyway (like those old 2nd run Ions with the tiny beads).
