Mediums turned $$$ in the warm weather. I'm driving equal distance to my axis if I have the headroom, but with a more consistent landing.

Soft Anode will be bought around November of this year.. Medium's will be used until then.

Softs exclusively on the course for me. I bring my mediums to field practice and use them for putting practice but always throw softs when I play. Putts, drives, rollers.

I've had a few soft Anodes bounce off the pole and straight back out recently in warm weather - it's like they are so flexy that they just spring back on a dead center pole hit. Anyone else had this happen? It happened twice in a round the other day, both on 10ft putts that hit dead center pole.

I love the feel of the soft, but if this keeps up I may have to go medium for putting.

Nope. I've only had that happen with a med on my practice basket but it only has 1 set of chains so I don't really count it. Spit throughs happen on it too that normally wouldn't. Softs have been treating me fine as far as spit outs and bounce outs go on the course.

Yeah I prefer softs for all my putters, but the medium Ions and Anode's fly just as great. Just a preference for how flexible I like the flight plate, nothing wrong with either type.

IMO medium, pairs way better with soft Ion's. Medium's feel stiff in the hand during the winter but the chains don't mind
