Yep, Ion is just like a fresh Wizard in flight. You've got to fight through the initial while with Proton/Neutron...use it for putting practice and upshot practice, anything you can for contact with objects. Once it's scuffed up it's ok like any other premium plastic, and it lasts. But I agree when they are new, they are terribly slick.

Hit it with a Scotch-brite pad and then rubs some mud on it a couple times.

I really like the Proton Soft. Even that has more grip in winter than a trusty electron. I'm not huge on soft discs....blends are nice. What I like about the Proton soft is the rim is still firm.

I love soft proton too. I used to putt with a soft p anode, now I use it as an arrow straight thrower and putt with my firm E anode. Wish I could get my mids in soft p....

Had some time to kill before work yesterday so I stopped by a dinky 9 hole and brought 4 E Ions with me.

First hole I played is super short, only 80' or so. Short enough to jump putt it in. Decided I'd throw flicks at it, putt them in, then throw backhands back to the previous basket.

First throw of the day and it sails right in. Only 80' and I've aced this one before, but it was neat. Wish every round started that good.

I was very impressed with some of the recent soft Eclipse Ions. I had previously thrown mainly Plasma, and the soft Eclipse seems to be more neutral and have a very straight fade. Even fairly fresh, they like that higher putter approach line and like finishing very straight. As Suspect said, the plastic is "soft" but the rim feels plenty firm.

Is that just like a standard Proton Soft or like all Eclipse Softs? How run-dependent are these?
