Question Anode: Medium or Soft

After reading through the Anode thread, Figured this would be a great visual for noobs or people in debate of which type of Anode to buy.

no option for both. i have more confidence purring with the medium, and better luck driving the soft. Now that the weather is warmer, my softs are floopyish. I'm turning to the medium more and more with the warm weather. I like a softer medium myself.

I, Like mrGlass, have had much better luck driving with the softs and putting with mediums. We'll see what the Texas heat does with the mediums, I may have to switched to driving with the mediums and going back to the older Ions for putting.

I use both, but I like the soft a little better over my medium. Good grip without being too floppy. My softs also seem to glide a little longer than my mediums. May just be how I'm throwing them though.

I've only been putting with min so far. Out to 60-70ft I can't tell much of a difference in flight. I am about to go drive the hell out of'em though!

I do not like either for putting, but I love them for approaches and running the basket. I like how the Softs feel but the Mediums have slightly straighter flights. Yet they are so close in flight that it really does not matter. The Softs, therefore, get the nod because of the slightly better feel.

Softs in cold weather, Mediums in warm/hot weather. If you like the grip of the softs, but want the flight of a medium, do the ol' windex trick.

I am not necessarily talking about the texture feel of the softs, but I like to have a little give around my grip. I definitely do not like floppy discs like Gumputts, but I find that I have a cleaner form and release with something with a little give.

I usually like the softs, but I noticed with it being a little warmer last weekend, I favored the mediums. I carry both to just suit my mood
