Been working on my putting stance/launch lately and have changed it from what I was previously doing so starting tomorrow I'm going to give the Pures another go as my putting putter. In the past I used a regular staggered stance/push putt but over the past few weeks I've been transitioning to a sorta hybrid stance (though much more staggered than straddle) with more spin on the disc and on a lower line. Early returns are promising for the potential of better power and consistency of form but I think the Pure may be better suited than the Wizard, especially at longer range.

the Pure is a driving machine. it shapes like a stripper on e. it can also fly straight as the pecker on the guy watching the stripper. I'm in love with a stripper.

there is nothing pure about what this disc does to/for me.

I would like your X-Wasps, please.

You are a purely dirty man sir :-D
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.

I'm still loving this disc is zero, it is a permanent fixture in my bag. It is great for short to medium turnovers or low power shots. I need to buy more of them so I have a stack to practice with.
It's all about discipline and focused practice!

I do put with them all the time. The plastic is so amazingly grippy. I love them.

Sometimes I drive them, but only for turnovers or anhyzers.

The Magnet is much more stable, and has a deeper rim.

Id argue that a pure is actually more overstable at putting speed.......and has far shittier glide

I did the same thing a while back except I am using the new Swan. It has worked perfectly. I Pure is so similar to the Swan you should have very good results. My putting has gotten much better, and more consistent. The only difference is that I straddle from about 30' and in. I go staggered beyond that, and use more legs. To each his own.

And I'm bringing this back for Opto Pure discussion.

Threw my opto pures today alongside my anodes. It was calm when I first took them out and the pures performed decently against the anodes, they are pretty fast and are a little less nose angle sensitive than the anodes.

Wind picked up quite a bit after about 10 minutes so I killed some time by taking the flash off my pures by rubbing them on the ground. Got some more throws in with them with less (but not all) of the flashing removed when the wind calmed back down. They love to track slowly right now, like a new X comet before just kinda settling down to the ground. They don't have as much glide as my anode but are fast enough to be able to keep up with it distance wise except in a tailwind where the anodes were getting a good 20' on the pures.

Wind picked back up pretty good so I decided to test them into a headwind. My anodes, when released clean and with some hyzer, will fly into a headwind ok. The pures can also do this but seem to like to be smacked around more which I thought was odd. I need to get these on the course and test them out.

So far I have to say the opto pure is a really nice disc and if you are looking for a dead straight premium putter, this has to be on your list. It is different enough in how it behaves from the anodes to make me think I could possibly put both in the bag, especially if, once the flash wears all the way off, these things continue to like to finish right.

a Magenta Opto Pure should be at my house tomorrow. If this disc is as (°Y°) as everyone says I may have to go to confession after every round of DG.
