Default Soft Anode less likely to roll?

I have some medium anodes and they have quickly became my main putter, but they seem to like to catch an edge and roll away on risky greens.

Are the softs floppy enough to counter this issue or are they pretty much just a grippier feeling medium?


Thanks for any info.

They roll less, but any disc will roll. Depends upon whether the softer disc effects your throws in a negative way, or if otherwise you throw exactly the same.

They will roll, no doubt about that.

Round discs roll, whether they're soft or not. My advice is to choose a putter based on how well you can make putts with it rather than planning to fail.

But if you fail to plan to fail then you plan to fail to plan.


The above has nothing to do with the equation, if I am going to take a putt I will be using my medium. For the ones that are too risky to go for instead of being forced to lay-up on risky putts I would like to take a free shot at it, like a blowfly. curious if the Anode was good enough to fill that roll, apparently it is not.

Thanks for replies.

The mediums I've felt up are porcelain-stiff, so somewhat fewer rollaways, I think. For me, the main thing the softs do better than mediums is on drives they don't rocket off trees deep into the rough. There's better cushioning and hit-forgiveness with the soft.

As a former vibram user (which rolled and bounced) I can say I noticed a marked change in my rolls, bounces and such when I switch from medium anodes to softs.

Try it and tell us what you think.

I soft and medium Anodes and they both roll for me. Ions don't seem to roll like Anodes do. I've never had putters roll like Anodes. I brought this up in the Anode or MVP thread and the general concensus was, as usual, that MVP discs are perfect

Anodes roll well though. I've been working on a trick shot for when the wind is up on a 300' downhill shot at our local course. I've rolled them to within 15' or so several times!

Put it in the basket and you won't have to worry about rolling.
