Review, discuss

It's a new putter from Maple Valley Plastics, right here in Michigan. The outer rim has a separate plastic piece bonded to the flight plate portion, like the Odyssey by Quest. The plate is milky, soft, and has an inner edge with a textured grip. The outer piece is tacky, and grabs onto any chain. I've hit putts with it on the outside left edge low and it went in where most would keep on flying like nothing happened. It has a Voodoo-like shape and flight path for putting at least.

Yes I know about this link. I was on the phone with MVP for 20 mins. because the pdga at the ATLANTA open was saying different! I sell these in my store, and thats the feedback from some of the players, playing at pdga tourneys.
I got one about the same time I got a new wizard so still trying it out. happy so far but I need to ditch my other putters and use it 100% in a few rounds to get a better feel.
I like the way the ION putts it has very little low speed fade so I aim right at the chains, I was expecting a little better glide than I am getting. My main question is just how well the outer band will hold up to trees and the edge of the chastity belt. I ordered a red on and the plastic sleeve said red but in my opinion mine is orange
Apparently the outer plastic is VERY durable, so don't be worried about smaking tress or anything else with them :) These putters are getting lots of love lately, so of course I had to buy a pair to try out. I have been throwing Wizards exclusively for my putting duties, these were actually the first new putter I have tried in almost 2 years. So far I am still liking my Wizards, and I'm not sure if it's the putters fault or the fact that I am so used to putting with my Wizards that the Ion's don't "feel" right. I know one thing though, I don't like how floppy these soft runs are. I like a firmer putter as I throw SS Wizards which are actually not that soft at all, so I am going to give these one more go once the medium ones come out.
I agree with you about the flight plate of the ION being flimsy feeling. I don't really like its feel. That said I am hitting the basket from a greater distance more consistently, make sure you understand the term hitting the basket. I am hitting the outside of the basket, just need to get my toss about 2 inches higher
I'll wait for "The Ozone"!! O3 for short.
i got the ion when it first came out i now have both runs of them are they are my main putters now
I have a red/black second run but haven't used it enough to give good feedback yet.

My question is about where it's made. I thought innova made it. Innova is making discs in Michigan ????
No, it's made by Maple Valley Plastics.
I got a second run red and black ion just over 2 months ago, I love how it feels in the hand and the flight pattern. It has become my main putter, taking place of my wizards, so i picked up a 2nd one about a month ago. Great putter!
Sounds like a fun new putter I might have to get one please hold one for me at the throw shop I have to come by to get me disc that went for a swim last week.
I still feel it flies like a Voodoo at least inside my shop here. I am hitting the same rate of putts with it as the Voodoo, and higher than any other putter. Will try to throw it on a drive today.
