Dying grip line, zero line plastic.

Postby eky8 » Sun Sep 12, 2010 8:51 pm

I am wanting to buy a pure for putting. But not having a local shop to look at latitude plastic. I was wondering if anyone has any experience dying the grip line or zero line plastic. I've never even seen it. So I really have no idea what it's like. Love the gold line and opto though

Lemberger did a Grip Pure with a Bruce Lee dye so it looks doable. Maybe PM him and ask if he did anything special?

I've got an Opto xXx that I dyed a skull on a while back. Best plastic I've dyed so far. The image is the clearest and faded the least out of all the dyes I've done so far. I'm sure their other stuff is pretty comperable.

I've had good luck dying latitude's Opto line...
much less so on their Grip line, that stuff does not like to take dye.
Just based on the feel of it, I'd say that zero should take dye pretty well.

Since I posted this I have dyed both. The grip line dyed really well, but it is spreading fairly quick. (I dyed it black and it kinda has a purple halo surrounding the dye. I'll take pictures when I get a minute.) Probably most similar to pro line plastic or I dyed a gummy star rhyno and it did the same thing. As for zero line. Not really sure. I dyed it grey and it took well. But it fading quick. It's really light now. Not sure what it would do if you dyed a darker color.
