Soft ones in hot weather can get a bit gummy. Also, if it's a textured-bottom run you could have some issues with finger drag since your hands aren't used to the added grip.

Yes, and I've recently switched to KC Pro Avairs. For me, it IS the weather - hot and humid, and I can't dry my hands enough to prevent that slight tackiness that's just enough to steal my focus when putting.

I found that rubbing my hands in dry dirt works to remove the moisture, but after a thunderstorm there is no dry dirt.

I love the Ions but decided to quit fighting them for putting in the humid summer. I may switch back in the fall / winter when the dry air causes the opposite situation. I still carry an Ion for short rescue flicks and approaches.

BTW: a birdie bag might work to remove tackiness from your hands and disc, but I didn't try that.

Same. Loved soft anodes during the Minnesota winter/early spring, but now they are garbage to me. Back to the Wizards.

Finger drag on the bottom is exactly what i have! It happens about 20-25 out it causes me to shank a putt then that gets in my head lol and goes south from there! Thanks for the info guys i have my Aviars moved in already they feel better!

I CAN NOT throw my soft opaque ion cleanly in the summer. I usually turn it over not from OAT but from the rim catching on one of my fingers. i just switched to yeti aviars for putting but keep the ion around around for driving. that may change shortly.

the yeti's are slightly concave when brand new, they also have a smoothed out bead. I Love them, the plastic on the 4x is stiff but grippy, the 3x's are a little more chalky but also good. My favorite ones are black 3x's
