Exactly. Think Yeti Pro Aviar where the center of the flight has sunken in, or creating a reverse dome. I have seen this most pronounced in softer plastics and especially in Vibram putters. I have a few Eclipse Soft Ions where you can trick your eye into thinking it is concave and a few more Neutrons to an even lesser extent. All I am saying is that they are no where near Yetis or Vibrams, but there is definitely something happening in comparison to the harder Protons.

As for grip, totally aside from the tops, I cannot stand Proton. It just feels too hard; not necessarily slick, but I just cannot get a grip on it. Whatever is the chemical difference between normal and Softs make all the difference in the world. I rediscovered the beauty that is Soft Eclipse just in time for the Majestic. That Ion alone likely shaved three throws off my total. As for Neutron, I only tolerate it because I love the bright yellow core.

If they ever made Soft Eclipse Tangents, I would snatch up all the yellow ones in the store.

I still think Neutron and Proton are the same plastic. Neutron is just opaque and more expensive. Close your eyes and you cannot tell the difference.

I don't have enough experience with Neutron/Proton but I do know my Soft Proton Anode is a tic more overstable than my Medium Proton Anode.

I can say that the actual plastic has nothing to do with the stability of each mold. Dome or flat top tends to be the biggest factor specially with tangents, volts and axis/vectors where the domey runs will be more stable specially noticed in the slightly stronger LSS fade.

I have flat protons, domey protons, flat neutrons, domey neutrons... More dome=more stability and only go by that not which plastic they are.

So there is virtually no difference except extra neutron grip?

One is opaque, one is not.

Other than that they feel, fly and perform damn near identical for me. Every mold available in both I've compared quite extensively.

I find neutron to have better grip. Opaque is the other difference. I like that. Its esp and elite-z but the same durability.

Neutrons are charge neutral, and consist of two down quarks (charge=-1/3) and one up quark (charge=+2/3)

Protons are charge +1, and consist of 1 down quark and 2 up quarks.

I'm looking forward to the Gluon, Neutrino (Why Nano and not Neutrino guys?), and to see if they believe in supersymmetry in order to come out with a slepton!
