    Anode Neutron, 175g. This is a very accurate putter. The Anode is my first choice if I’m within 40 ft. and have a straight line to the basket. However, I am not impressed with it as an approach disc or driver. My Lat 64 Zerosoft Pure far exceeds it in those categories, but in close the Anode seems to go right where I am looking.

    I had been looking for a new putt & approach disc recently, and when it came down to it, I decided to go and pick up a 175 gram Anode (Proton Plastic). I wanted a disc that would fly stable and not be too affected by the wind.

    This has become one of my favorite discs, easily. It sits on the ground, doesn’t get up and roll or run away on you, it doesn’t get blown around by the wind, and it flies straight as an arrow.

    I love the feel of it in my hand–it was a very easy transition for me to move from an Aviar (classic) to the Anode.

    I think this disc is a definite must-buy.

    Eclipse Glow Soft 173g.

    Not as neutral as I expected. Maybe the soft plastic? Seems like a 3,3,-1,1 to me.

    Sortof almost straight, but pretty good at dodging the basket with a little turn or fade and sailing by on long puts (pilot error Im sure…) I’m MUCH happier with my Rattler for straight put and approach shots, and my Mako is better for me for finesse shots.

    Very pretty disc though, and seems like it could be a great tool for the right thrower once you get used to it.

    Great overall disc… Can play a full round with just this disc, drives, approach, and putting. I got one a year ago in the eclipse proton and is still in great condition. I bought a second one to use for practice as these are my go to putters. I’ve made my longest putts with these discs, one from almost 100 feet out. Pair my straight flying Anode with my overstable Ryno when it’s a little windy and it’s a deadly combo. Love this disc and look forward to trying the soft plastic next.

  5. Zzzach

    I picked up a Neutron Anode from a friend to try out. Really liked the way this disc holds a nice anhyzer all the way to the basket. It has become my go to anhyzer approach disc. I’m still putting with my Wizards, but using my Anode a lot from 200ft and in. The one thing I have been disappointed with is the durability of the Neutron plastic. I’ve only had the disc for about a month and yesterday I put a huge gash in the rim. I’m talking a big enough gash to immediately affect the flight of the disc. Strange thing was it didn’t appear to hit any rocks or anything sharp at all. The shot was a near ace and the disc settled in the dirt right next to the basket. Picked it up and there was the huge gash… I’ve had a similar experience with the Neutron plastic with on of my Volts. I guess I’ll have to give Proton a try and see if it will hold up better for me because I do love the Anode mold.

    I really wanted to try out the MVP Anode after reading some reviews. After throwing the medium and soft for a few months now, I’m completely convinced that the only difference between soft and medium is the feel in the hand. I found them within 5-10′ of each other over and over after throwing them both. They have the distinct feel of an Aviar, so if your hands like an Aviar (deep rim) then you’ll like MVP Anodes. Smaller fingered folks (t-rex hands) might want to look elsewhere (Vibram).

    They took some getting used to for me for driving approaches. They have a nice glide right off the get-go, but I had to focus on keeping them flat to a touch of hyzer or I’d risk a turnover. A heavier weight might help to fight off that, but it was clearly user error when I turned it right with a RHBH. I throw a 171 Vibram Ridge with the same arm speed and it goes dead straight. It just took some adjustment.

    For putting, I’m liking them. I have been throwing a couple Classic Aviars in my putting practice, so the feel in the hand is something I am familiar with. If you want to find out if you will like an Anode before dropping the coin, try a DX Aviar for $8 to see if you like the shape. Less glide, similar shape, similar putters. They are very unique looking and even though I have them in Proton green – they show up super bright in the grass. Very easy to find on bad drives.

    Finally the weight. I went with 171 and eventually bought five of them for practice because I was so happy with it. In the wind, this disc gets moved around. I carry a 176 Lat Pure when it’s serious wind. Slight wind, no problem – but as you guys know – big wind makes putting insane and going as heavy as possible is key.

    Great putter! Super straight and feels comfortable in the hand. MVP also makes the best looking discs in the market.

    Review Whiz, L8

    i picked up an eclipse anode putter the other day because i liked the ion so well. like the ion it is a great approach disc maybe just a little straighter in its flight path. great glide, sticks to the chains and works well off the tee on shorter holes. after throwing both the anode and the ion over and over side by side i feel they are very close to being the same disc ( the ion does fade slightly more) and have decided i don’t need to carry both. but am having trouble deciding which one will stay in the bag. either way the mvp putters fly great and look great doing it, but i would like to see them put out a really over stable putter like the innova pig. with all that being said i think that MVP is a great new company that is creating some really great disc and intend to try every disc they make at some point.

    Review Lover, L6

    This is my go to putter. This disc will hold whatever line you launch it on. Good glide, but not so much you have to worry about sailing past the basket. Also makes a great utility and trouble disc. I have launched several forehand shots from the trees to park it right were I needed to be.

  10. Mike

    The Anode is straight-stable and a great compliment to the Ion. Not only is it great for putting (my main putter) but it works great off the tee, too! The Anode won’t flip over, but it will fly incredibly straight and finish with a subtle hyzer. Definitely a keeper.

    Review Enthusiast, L3

    This disc is the best feeling and best flying disc I have ever owned. It holds any line I put it on, and I especially love it for hard to stick hyzer shots when playing in a heavily treed area. I have had lots of comments on my approach shot thanks to this disc,and it is the only putter I will carry in my bag now. I have to have it in neutron plastic or proton eclipse for that time of the night when a glow disc really comes in handy. I urge everyone to go out and buy one of these discs.

  12. Matthew Mayorga

    This putter is the best ever!!! It feels so comfortorable in your hands, like it just belongs there! Also, it’s great for beginners I had no problems just picking this putter up and start draining putts! This is like the star of my frolfing line-up! If you want a fantastic putter, go here because you could not possibly go wrong with this disc!!!!

    Man this disc is awesome. At my home course there is a short par 3 over the water and I usually throw a magic putter, this current day I didn’t have my putter to throw and borrowed my buddies anode. Threw it and aced it…bought me one that night. Great disc keep up the good work guys!

      Wait…you ACED it, and you still had to buy a new one? Where I am from( I thought this was universal)this is the way it goes; If you ace with a friends disc, its YOURS immediately, and all witnesses sign it.

    Review Enthusiast, L3

    Although I haven’t thrown one yet, I did recently ask my group of local players what their most consistent go-to disc was. The Anode made the list, with one thrower saying, “Every time I was close enough to use it… Every time.”

  17. Andrew Zimmerman
    Review Enthusiast, L3

    I love this putter. I don’t have to worry about it changing direction mid flight due to the stability it has. Its always chasing the chains and trying to lower the score of everyone that uses if. I love to throw this on short tunnel shots and it amazes me every time.

  18. Eric

    The Anode is my go to short range driving disc and putter. I use a pink Eclipse to drive with (easier to find) and a black Neutron for putting duties. Hasn’t left my bag since I got one when they were released. Flies on any line you put it on and really is an easy to throw and learn to drive with putter. Great disc!

  19. Jules

    lost my first putter ever to play the game with, og avair, went to this as an alternative… it was like losing a great friend but finding a new love… <3 this thing floats and stalls where i want it, if you want it to fade it fades, you want an annie shot it holds that annie all day! driver midrange putter it is the entire bag in one disc.

    I don’t always throw MVP but when I do I prefer Anode! Throw aces my friends!

  21. I switched to the Anode from the Aviar as my go-to putter about a year ago and have not regretted it one bit. It’s also a great approach disc when you need something to hold that anhyzer line all the way to the basket. I also carry an Ion for those long approaches that may need a hyzer finish, but the Anode is the disc that gets thrown most often – no question.

  22. Robert k
    Reviewer, L2

    I spin putt and the proton anodes are my go to. Perfect for clean straight putts within the circle. I also carry one for approaches which are my go to. It’s a real fun disc to throw for any round.

  23. Keith Baker
    Review Supporter, L4

    I now have 2 Anodes and I love them. I have the Neutron and Soft Proton. The Proton seems a little more overstable, but the Neutron is super straight. I can drive this putters about 240′ consistently. The Proton is really grippy, the Neutron is decently grippy. It has replaced my Wizards and Aviars. Now I just need to get more of them.

  24. I have 2 anode proton softs. best putters ive ever purchased straight and very reliable!!!! I converted all my discs to mvp, absolutly no complaints on any of these discs. I love it when people ask what i throw with…. innova…. discraft, and i say mvp. Alot of times people never heard of the brand.

    Review Supporter, L4

    It’s not as great as everyone says. It’s not as straight flying as its hyped up to be and mine has begun to lose its shape, the rim is warped now. Also, proton plastic is the slipperiest plastic you will ever come across. Go buy a Gateway SSS Voodoo. Its the best putter in existence.

  26. Brandon

    I used to carry 5 different putters, now I carry anodes and nothing else. It’s a disc that you can throw with confidence for any shot. The outer rim weight makes it very stable in flight, but also keeps it from rolling down hills – super important if you want to “go for it” shooting downhill. I highly recommend the extra bucks for the eclipse version in bright green – it is very easy to find day or night.

  27. Riko Menzies
    Review Fanatic, L5

    The Anode is the MVP putter that you want for banging chains. The Ion is great, but it works better for the tee and shorter approach shots. The Anode is a reliable straight putter with impressive glide that will hold the lines you put it on. It’s a great putter for all skill levels.

  28. Jai
    Review Participant, L1

    I switched to an anode a few months and after a few weeks of getting a feel for it I could’t imagine using another putter. Within 30 feet, it’s a no brain play. It flies very straight and if you miss the putt it’s most likely an issue with your throw than the disc. I have had an issue with sinking longer putts with it which is something I’ve been getting better at lately, although it is good for upshots in which you don’t want to overshoot your target. I have it in the eclipse glow plastic which has to be the best looking putter/disc I’ve ever seen.

    Review Fanatic, L5

    Great disc. I have gone through a bunch of putters this year. Got a great deal on some used Ions and noted immediate improvement in putting and upshot. Noticed I was struggling a bit side to side on long puts/flex shots. Picked up some Anodes and have not looked back. I have made more puts this month than in the last three combined. Truly redefining what I consider possible WRT doable putts.

  30. Bobby

    While I was very weary about picking one of these up over the concern that it was going to be too slick, but, out of the MVP lineup, it was the main one I wanted to try and I was not happy with my putter at that time. While i walked by it and walked by it each time I went into my local Disc Golf Store, I did not pass up the opportunity to give it a shot during a doubles one night when my partner offered his for a test shot. I was roughly 45 feet out, and avg’ed 4:10 from that distance with my regular putter. First run at the basket with the Anode, and I was about 2 feet right as it was much lighter that my regular putter. I made a few tweaks with a few more practice runs (same distance).. and find my mark. I then began my /10 count as I often do during my putting practice. 1st go-round, I hit 5/10. 2nd go round, 5/10, then I got on a run of 3 straight 6/10 sessions. Needless to say, I thrown and Anode now.

    Review Supporter, L4

    I switched to the Anode after a year of putting with a gummy Rhyno. I spent hours pouring over flight paths of discs, feeling friend’s beaded and beadless discs and reading reviews before I settled on it. I was unhappy with my putting and decided to change from a spin putt to a push and wanted something truly straight and this was the disc.

    So far I’m pretty happy with my decision. When my putting is on I’m far more accurate with the Anode than I ever was with my Rhyno.

    This disc flies straight. That’s all there is to it. When you get about 35+ ft out it will fade at the end, but not by much.

    Straight, Stable, and Soft. All you need to know!

    If you’re looking for a straight flying putter with the smallest amount of low speed fade and prefer soft, tacky plastics the MVP Anode is the way to go!

    Review Fanatic, L5

    Simply love it. Picked one up when I was shopping for a new aviar and fell in love.(not at all like an aviar just a side note) straight straight straight. Use the a heavy medium for wins and a light soft for pretty much every putt. Can put it on any line and it stays. Very glidey so over shot can be a slight problem. Eclipse is gorgeous and I am currently in the market for a neutron, which I have heard are a little faster. Buying a blank neutron to throw a custom dye on bc the look fantastic. If ou want a straight headless putter that glides for days then look no further.

    Review Lover, L6

    This is definitely my favorite putter. Unlike the Ion there is very minimal fade, which is exactly what I want from a putter. I have it in the soft glow. The soft plastic is grippy for good accurate putts.

    Review Fanatic, L5

    Picked up an Anode for the express reason to have a long straight path putter / approach. Put it on a line and it will hold it for the entire flight with little to no fade right at the end.

  36. Reuben
    Review Whiz, L8

    Really strait flying putter. Flies a lot like a p&a avair at lower speeds but the Anode handles power better. The anode is a very forgiving disc that can will fly pretty flat for a long way. On low lines there is very little amounts of fade but on higher lines there is a very horizontal slow fade that covers a lot of ground.

    Overall a very fun disc to throw as you can do a lot of things you wouldn’t normally do with a putter with it.

  37. Ben G
    Reviewer, L2

    This disc is great for putting, excellent for approach shots, and awesome to use as a driver for holes in the 200-250 range. It is grippy, soft (I have an eclipse Soft) but still has a good feels to it while putting. The thing that impressed me the most was the glow that this disc can hold. I have tried a lot of glow plastics from Innova dn Discraft, but you really have to work hard to get them to light up properly, and then they fade fast. I help the Anode up to a head light for about 20 seconds, and that ring was super bright “green” when I chucked it into the dark night. Great disc.

  38. Thomas Olrich
    Reviewer, L2

    This disc is an amazing putter/short mid.

    This disc is awesome. It is a very strait flyer and has little fade. Its great for push and spin putting, which I primarily do.

    For cold weather the firms get very stiff (soft Wizard) softs stay Somewhat SSS Wizard soft. while in Warm temps the Medium Anodes feel great in the hand, lots of grip and yet a still solid firm feel. The softs are more gummy and flexible (You feel it flex down in the hand.)

    As for the durability is top notch. It can withstand lots of damage without showing wear. Also don’t judge its gripability based on your initial feel as the overmold is incredibly grippy.

    If your looking for a strong dead strait grippy putter with a great feel as long as reliability look no further.

    Review Lover, L6

    The anode is a great disc to have in the arsenal. I have a couple soft protons and just feel awsome. Before the snow flew, this was my go to putter for anything but once they get wet and with stiff chains, I was having way too many spit outs so had to switch to something tackier. The anode seems to handle a head wind putting quite well, holding a nice straight line. My bread and butter with this disc though is anny putts. It seems it will just hold that line forever to the chains. You do have to be careful with the glide on this disc though, if you miss you are looking at farther than normal comeback putts and also any wind other than a straight wind can make this disc to crazy things from my experience.
    Have to also mention this thins is a great driver off the tee. It will rip straight and glide forever with minimal fade.

    One of my friends got me an anode as a birthday present. It is a great putter. I have seen my range increase since I started using it exclusively. The only thing that I don’t like about it is it seems to get a lot more roll aways if you are going for a long putt and miss.

    The MVP Anode is another great disc from MVP Discs. I had a black one ( my buddy threw it on a roof) in the neutron plastcic, 175g.

    The feel of this disc is the same as all the other MVP disc. I found it not to be to grippy or to buttery even though it has a shiney and slick look to it.

    The Anode flies really straight and has minimal fade at the end, which makes it really good for those approach shots. When putting with this disc it holds the line very well and itsnt affected to much by the wind. I put with a bit of hyzer and it still held the line and would almost always find the chains.

    I highly recommend this disc to anyone looking to add a well-rounded putt and approach disc to there bag.

  44. Tricia Lafferty
    Review Lover, L6

    I purchased a Soft Proton Anode (with sparkles in it!) a few weeks ago. It is becoming my favorite putter. Since it’s been about 30-40 degrees each time I’ve played with it, it is stiffer than it would be in warm weather. It is really grippy, and the outer rim is nice and round. My index finger wraps around it and always sits in the same place each time I grip it, so the throws are very consistent. It has a really dependable flight, and seems like it has a magnet in it for the chains. So far with using it, I haven’t had any discs bounce off the chains and back out. It also works really well for me with short (less than 100ft) forehand throws.

  45. The Anode is a great, dependable disc..just like everything MVP puts out, in my opinion. The Anode is, in my opinion, the “true putter” of the MVP line-up, as opposed to the Ion which, as a slightly OS Putter, is better at driving.

    The Anode actually has a decent amount of glide for a putter and excels at anhyzer upshots and “get-out of trouble” shots. It holds lines way better than the Ion (spike hyzers notwithstanding)and is a great utility disc.
    Another good thing about the Anode is that it can really be used by all skill levels. Most MVP discs, because of the spin required to get them to behave properly they tend to favor a more intermediate player level. The Anode is a great putter for new players. They’ll get great lines out of it, and be the newbie with the coolest looking discs on the course.

    I carry a Neutron and a Proton soft in the bag at all times.

    The anode truly is an excellent disc for putting, upshots and even driving. I have been playing with my anodes for around 4 months and my disc golf friends call my green neutron custom dyed monkey faced putter my money disc because inside of 40′ its golden and inside of 20′ its just ridiculous as it gravitates toward the chains. Wind, calm and even rain wont mess this disc up. It took me about a month before I really warmed up to using my anodes. Currently I use them 100% inside of 40′ and sometimes for upshots and sometimes for driving shorter holes. Its also Excellent into the wind! The only downsides I have experienced are the following: 1) The anode seems to like to drop rather quickly if you don’t give it enough snap/spin/push, so you have to learn to be somewhat aggresive and confident with your putts. So, it really has turned into a positive for me. 2) I have had 2 shots I that I can recall, that had very bad rolls off the basket. but then just about any disc will do this at times. These discs love to roll. If I am putting on a steep hill, I will make sure I throw it super flat or Ill use another disc that will sit when it hits the ground, like a rhino/axis. Great disc, nice and straight with a little (very little) fade at the end. Go and out and get yourself one…or two….

    The Anode is a straight flying putter with very minimal fade at the end. If you put it on a straight line into the basket, it will go right into the basket.

    Small diameter putter, straight flyer right off the shelve. Mine is more of a puddle-top in the proton plastic. Perfect to drive off the tee with for shorter holes and $$$ in my opinion for upshots and putts anywhere from 10-30ft. Would reccomend this disc to anyone and quite often do!

    I have been playing disc golf for a year. As a beginner I can tell you that this disc has a solid spot in my bag, but not as my go to putter. I actually use this more on upshots and putts outside my normal circle. It flies really straight and ends up right where you put it. I don’t drive putters yet, but I hear it is the cats pajamas for that.

    A straight flying putter that keeps it line well. The weighted rim is suppose to give you more control. I will say the glow version is one of the best lit disc I have ever played with. The disc seems to be slightly smaller in diameter then most disc. You can feel the quality in the disc when you throw with it

    Review Enthusiast, L3

    Anode’s strait flight helps for long putts beyond the reach of the more stable Ion. Flies straiter longer with less effort. No need to Jump putt. Just pull out the Anode. Holds a tremendous anhyzer line for approach. Be careful that it doesn’t land on its edge when thrown anhyzer. No need to use a strong angle. Just snap and watch turn.

    I can get this disc to do anything, and even was told that in competition once. I love the how predictable it is.

    The rim is super sturdy and hits the chains like a champ, but the dome is very grippy.

    If I had one complaint it would have to be how hard it is. If it’s cold outside and your carrying a bag around, this disc gets hard as a rock.

    I’d suggest it for people who like to do any type of ‘trick putting.’ Most of my friends prefer the Ion.

    Putting, driving, upshots – this disc does it all, and does it all incredibly. Holds whatever line you give it, and the plastic (Neutron in particular) is delicious. If you are looking for something without a bead that can handle some power off the tee, but also be powered down for approaches, the Anode is the disc for you. Check out the soft Proton plastic, as well.

  59. Emechtech

    This must be the straightest disc in existence. If thrown hard, it just goes straight. Even if thrown with slight hyzer or anhyzer, the Anode still flies straight. If any turn or fade is desired, the release must be exaggerated. Fun disc to throw, especially if you’re having an otherwise poor round.
