Thanks for clearing that up, as I have seen some "soft" Anodes on the shelf at the local DG shop and they did not have "soft" stamped on them. But it was easy to tell they were indeed a run of "soft" Anodes just from the feel.

I have my own trusty Anode at home and it has "Soft" stamped on it and I have had it for quite a while. I would have guessed (incorrectly?) the opposite of what you posted BlueBells, just making an assumption. I assumed the store had newer ones than mine, so new ones were no longer marked. But it sounds like the store may be sitting on some older runs that were not marked. Interesting, thanks.
