i'm actually considering going back to soft proton anodes for main driving and approach duties now that we have electrons. it's a shame, considering how much time i've invested in my kc aviars . . . at least two years now. a little on and off, but mostly on. i've got a couple kc aviars beat up to straight/understable goodness. fun to watch fly, but definitely not quite the same as the combination of durability, arrow-straightness and glide the anodes have. the kc's have got arrow-straightness and glide, but not durability.

at the very least i'll probably buy another pair just because i like them so much. good to mix things up and now again. the anode was the last disc i aced with, i do believe.

are the softs still nice and HSS with a big rounded shoulder? those are what i like to drive with. i don't like tight curves on the regular ions/anodes.

Yeah it's kind of stupid how far MVP putters fly. Last winter I was sinking long putts all over the place with an Anode. Accidentally. I was trying to approach because I was too far out to expect anything other than a layup, and the darn thing just flew into the chains. Over and over again. Yet I still drive Opto Pures, putt Zero Soft Pures, and hyzer approach with Ions. Nobody ever accused me of playing smart...

I know you throw them on hyzer flips and crazy high...at what distance do they start turning for you when they aren't beat (you need to start hyzer flipping)? In calm conditions I would never see any turn, but they just want to drift straight/downfield if they have a touch of wing down...which is what I love about them so much.

And I definitely agree about adjusting to the distance thing...it's like a sleeker Aviar that is a touch shorter (better in my putting grip) and gets a bit more speed. I had to initially adjust to the extra carry vs. slow glide type of flight, and them sliding a bit when they hit hard ground compared to the Aviar...but whenever I've tried an Aviar since they've felt sluggish. I mean I could throw Aviars or variants again, but I don't have to.

Feels like it never left. handicap parked. Just one of several stellar throws with the soft proton anode during today's round.

This thread is making me want to try an Anode. If I like a somewhat stiff star-like feel, what MVP plastic should I look for?

Yep, and if you can get old school Neutron it's even firmer than the new stuff.
