I played two more rounds with the Mercy two thirds of the last round in the rain. I can't let my index finger and thumb to be totally loose in putting or it will slip out when wet in 56F. Adding a little gripping strength doesn't hurt my form or results from what i could see in putting. There was a good bit of wind and at times the disc turned 2-3 degrees but so would any other straight to straightish putter have done. More anny experience and for shorter approaches the Mercy turns tight enough for anything but the tightest turns if there is no ceiling. I don't know the exact distance yet where it starts to push through anny but it can do that for a long time given more power. Probably 250' is enough to show pushing through anny. So you would limit what you can accomplish if you carried the Mercy as the sole putter. Hyzers worked beautifully and i was a foot or two short of metal today despite exposing the bottom of the disc slightly to the r>l wind hyzered on purpose. No deviation from the line just the wind pushing the disc sideways. I did see lifting in stiffer headwinds in putts and drives again.

I threw uphill 6' in a tunnel of IIRC 200' throwing to 10' above the 6' risen ground with a flat shot that faded 13-14'. The fade can be significantly less on higher powered and/or lower throws. This shows that it is a fairly straight disc especially at above 200' distances.
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.

It holds its angles beautifully on long annies as well, I've thrown a few 300'-330' annies with it which went to the ground holding the angle all the way, very stable disc when given power and spin. Love the plastic, love how it flies, love how it feels.

I've had it flex out of mild annies of a degree to say 3-4, steeper ones at higher power do hold the angle to the ground. Over 4 degree annies at low power also flex somewhat and going to short approaches/long runs may even fade if thrown above say 8'. So far for my style the 175 glides too little for putts and long runs so it is a better driving putter than a putting putter. The good thing about the non megalomaniac glide in putting is that it won't blow by insanely much like most straighter glidier putters can on level lasers at over 25'.

Yeah, mild annies it won't hold perfectly, on higher lines anyway. I've been trying to beat one in to manage proper turnovers and shallower annies but it's proving to be harder than I thought for a base line plastic disc.

It feels stiff for a base plastic so maybe it is an in between of other base and mid grade plastics.

It looks like EZE might not even be around much longer anyway.

We'll see, it's sad that people don't like change and can't see that it's superior to zero/grip. I sure as hell hope that it stays.

Me too. I love my TM2 pures. I actually prefer them to the zeros.

Eze, despite the name, is a fantastic plastic from what I've seen. Why would it be going away?

HELLO?!!!! Why on earth not it is a tremendous plastic? Where did you hear this and are there replacements in plans that accomplish the same things?

On the L64 launchers facebook page Tomas made a cryptic comment that would seem to indicate the possibility of eze going OOP. "Eze come, eze go... Thats my reaction... No more comments for now."
Personally I prefer zero. Have a two year old zero pure I love as my main putter.

14C rain and the EZE Mercy started slipping out at times in drives and all the time in putts with a lighter grip. Man i need a gluey disc for these conditions. It was a 5 course marathon day starting out somewhat weary so i might not have problems in better weather and fresh. As if that happens often.

Almost any plastic is slippy to almost everyone in those conditions :)

As if that is the worst problem i have. I had a few putts today where my fingers straightened out in forcible override from the subconscious to alleviate the stress in the arm. How dysfunctional is that after blasting 400' on many shots? ARGH! Plastic material doesn't help much in that a really tacky plastic gives a little error margin at closer ranges.

I threw the Mercy on my most played rocky course and it fared fine in all the annies that weren't tightly turning in the beginning. I can't tell how it would have fared if i had thrown it. I scored well so no complaints. Actually i was impressed how well it annied and help up in the rough terrain. I would very much like to see this disc continued in production.
