What's a minimum order or custom stamped mvp?

Hoping someone can help.

I put with Soft Wizards and I like to upshot with my E-Wizards. I've seen these discs and like the look they have. I didn't really check them out other than hold one. I didn't check for a bead or anything. Which one will fly closest to a soft wizard? Which will fly more like a E-Wizard. I like my E-Wiz in light headwinds too.

MVP putters are longer than Wizards. Ions have beads Anodes less so. Clear Ions for closer to E Wiz flight and opaque Ions or soft clear Anode 175 sof Wiz are probably the closest matches. For me the Anode is easier to release purely.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Thank you for that. So longer=more distance, right? Thank you for the advice, I may change my putters. Just expensive to load up on those, at least from my local retailer who sells them for $17 a pop.

You probably won't live long enough to see them really beat in. Unless you lose them these discs can last for a lifetime.

Anode flies hellafar for a putter. There is a weak spot in MVP discs in that the overmold will be gouged hitting something thin and sharp like sheet metal in the thin end. That happened to a clear Ion of mine.

Yes, they will get gouged when thrown at something that's essentially a somewhat dull knife. Anything will get gouged like that...

I don't intentionally throw at sheet metal. There's plenty of it around one of the fields i train at and skips plus wind pushes and messed up shots will easily hit metal often times against the sharper end of the metal. Even at low speeds the overmold will be cut easily. At low speeds primo plastic won't be cut i have enough throws to show that over the years. Glass shards and sharp rocks can hurt the ovemold material over time but it is the kind of damage that would scrape primo plastic too. The difference is that many scrapes won't make those discs illegal for competition.

Picked up two medium pink 170 anodes for putting duties, man are they pretty. I'm going to give them a fair shake for a little while.

I've said this on DGCR already... but the Anode has knocked 3 discs out of my bag. It is what I wanted to the Warlock to be and more.
