Atom is most similar to the Proxy /Envy core. Flight wise closer to Proxy then Envy but kinda in the middle.
Spin is the Anode /Ion core and is the most US of the 3

Agree. I prefer Neutron to any other MVP/Axiom plastic.

After a two day (2.5 hour) putt off it was funny that my two favorite putters turned out to be the same plastic and the same weight, but entirely different types of putters. The Pure with no bead, on the thinner side, and the Judge with a bead and more of an Aviar type thickness - Opto in one and Lucid in the other, both at 173g.

Now I've just got to decide if the Anode or Atom is the best combination of the two in thickness and whether Neutron or Proton will feel most like my Opto/Lucid plastic.

Thanks to everyone for your helpful feedback!

Anode is awesome. It is really really similar to an Aviar in shape, but maybe slightly sleeker in height. Not low profile by any means though, so it has normal putter glide. Although it is "beadless" because of how the overmold goes on, there is some of the core sticking out the bottom so it's like a tiny microbead. If you like Judges and Aviars, you will like the Anode.

I would go for a Neutron Anode, after feeling my putters up my scuffed up Neutron does feel a little better for feel than my scuffed up Proton. I use them interchangeably, this is me searching for "does one feel different?".

The only weird thing with the Anode is that on the inside of the rim, where the rim meets the flight plate, there is a curve rather than the typical 90ish degree meeting. This should not be felt during a putting grip. It took me a little bit to adjust to in BH and FH throws, as I use Anodes for drives, approaches, FH's and putts. But again, you get used to it and it's fine.

Anodes are awesome if you want a more normal depth putter that handles wind better than an Aviar and takes forever to beat in. Flies like a worn to straight Wizard or trustworthy Aviar forever basically. You just have to use it for a while to get the plastic to scuff up.

It's a tough call. The two winners in my putt offs were the Judge and the Pure. If had to pick one it would probably be the Judge...the thinness of the Pure had me getting a little too wristy with some of my putts. Looking at just the numbers the Atom falls squarely in between these two disc.

But I've had some past successes with the Warlock (decided it was too tall and deep to get a clean release) and the Aviar P&A (never found a plastic I liked)...so some taller disc (which I think the Anode is) have worked for me some in the past.

Thanks for the input!

I have gone through all the Anode plastics over the years. Plasma was my favorite but I'm really enjoying the Eclipse discs now (of course the most expensive). I decided I prefer stiff rather soft. I already own three and would like to bag two. I have:
175g Soft Eclipse
172g Eclipse
169g Eclipse

Would you think it's better to bag the two regular even though the soft is in my preferred weight? What would others do? $20 discs make me want to work with what I already own.

Neutron is the best plastic for MVP/Axiom. I do enjoy Fission Volts as well.

Do they fly different? My guess is the soft is going to be more different because of hand feel, than the other two would be because of weight. The only difference is if some are worn for years more than others, or there are significant gouges that make one turn. Anodes wear slowly IME. I'd probably use the two regular stiffness ones unless flight characteristics were different for some reason.

They are expensive, but they last so much longer than baseline putters if they are used for throwing too, and if you don't lose them.

I pretty much use them only for putting. I didn't throw the 169g. But 172 felt fine even though I usually do 175g. The soft released awkward in my hands quite frequently.

Yeah the soft does feel different for me in putting grip with how I feel the flight plate. For driving it doesn't matter and I'd choose choose 100% on flight. For putts you need to be confident on hand feel and release. Plus losing a few grams I don't think is a big deal on the Anode, it's slightly sleeker than an Aviar and I think not quite as affected by wind. So a couple grams isn't a big deal to me, although others are different about that.
