I like my medium second run ions and neutron anodes because they havn't puddletopped. I get cleaner putts when my thumb isn't sinking into the putter.

exactly, a puddle top makes it more difficult to putt with.

gladly i just sold my puddle tops, i will stick with the stiffer protons

I dont drive with my puddle top neutron anymore since the tangent was released, so no need at all for one.

You got dem puddle tops, he got dem puddle tops, she got dem puddle tops, e'erybody got dem puddle tops!

My puddle buzzz is a master blaster, I imagine an ion puddle would be one worth splashing around in.

Where do the main differences lie between neutron and proton? pros and cons? I just got my first proton/eclipse and I honestly am not finding much of a difference, although different conditions might bring out different characteristics.

I prefer proton/eclipse always, just feels grippier to me. Neutrons are too stiff, and I sweat a lot so they get really slick for me. Really, though, I don't know about stability differences.

there shouldn't be any real noticeable stability difference between the different MVP plastics...

Some of the first runs are a little different, but any new one should fly as intended.

There's nothing wrong with Rec players that enjoy throwing floppy inconsistent puddle tops, and if that sells discs, then they will probably make more like that and those rec player will stay rec

I know multiple 1000+ rated players who consistently perform at a high level and they all prefer stiff putters. there's no debate about it, if you want to putt more consistently you get stiffer plastic.

I should know better than to be critical about anything MVP makes on these forums, i might get shunned :P

I don't know what all this puddle top talk is. I've had a couple of N Ions since they came out, and they look the same as they did when they were brand new, except for the normal scuffs. Of course, I don't play as much as some of you, so should I expect this change at a certain number of throws? My oldest Ions have been thrown hundreds of times, but not thousands.

Edit: Just saw Discspeed's post about his Anode being the same after thousands of throws. And I lol'd at the response too.
