How quickly does Zero beat up? Comparisions for stability to an Opto Pure? I have an Opto Pure for driving/approaches and it is great, just curious how different the Zero is?

Very quick break in too much less HSS for hard drives and a hair less LSS after breaking in. If you don't want steeper hyzer flip to flat initial angles.
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 carry zero for putting and short anny shots. Opto is only for driving. Zero pure glides less than opto, (which I like in a putter), beats in very quickly and easily, and is very flexible and very grippy.

Also, if you take it easy on your zero plastic and treat it nicely it beats in to the best putter plastic ever. (In my opinion.)

Extremely late to the party but the fuse is about the best disc ever! What an amazing disc, probably the most fun to throw disc I have ever had. Had one about a month now and I am rarely throwing my sidewinders anymore. I can throw it nearly as far as a driver but way easier to control. Anyhow I am sure most of you already know this but I had to post for this disc. Much much love!!

Fuse is awesome. The disc that taught me how to really throw.

Throw harder and nose down with drivers each of them is longer than the Fuse when you give them enough power.

Depends on how big your arm is. Fuse is a great disc to learn to be great from.

Because the weather is turning to cold and wet it is time for me to search for grippier dscs than MVP products so i got an EZE Mercy. Only one session with it in the wind and it drove straight no flipping even in headwind and if not thrown over 10' high the fade was very small. Putts fade a little more than i like and maybe it drops a hair too fast but mine is a max weight and i've thrown 168 MVPs. Because soft APX is tackier it will be better in colder winter weather but the Mercy can handle driving so they could pair up very nicely. I also got a classic Aviar because in the warm store it felt a little softer and tackier than older ones but taking it out it was only a hair grippier than MVP stuff plus it didn't wear nicely at all. Nasty bottom after one round with parts missing and also a little too hard more abrupt albeit a little later fade than with the Mercy. The Mercy glided better despite being 5 grams heavier. 290' Mercy 270' Classic Aviar on good throws in wind lulls. Mercy deserves more testing. I might get one in a lighter weight for putting but i need to get my hands on P P2 first to see how they feel for tackiness.

Two rounds with the Mercy in dew and i didn't need to throw steep hyzers or annies beyond approaches so i can't yet tell about pushing through hyzer/anny. With straight shots this is an incredible disc. I'm gonna have to do a shootout between the Anode and my 175 EZE Mercy. So far it seems that the Mercy is at least as HSS if not more without release fussiness from shape and totally superior grip with only a mild fade that might be a hair more than the Anode. But i need to confirm that in side by side testing because they are fairly close. The Mercy has a distinct advantage from the get go in confidence because it has never stuck in the fingers or slipped. I left dew intentionally on the disc and there were lots of water drops and no slipping out whatsoever. I didn't even pinch the disc nor curl the index finger much into the disc. That is insane for me having legendarily poor grip in the skin and nerve damage in the arm automatically opening the fingers due to "too much pain" according to subconscious even in putting despite no felt pain.

The Mercy has possibly the highest HSS to least LSS ratio out there and kept low enough and thrown hard it is the straightest most dependable grippy driving putter i've felt. A little lacking in glide vs the glidiest putters but long enough and easy enough to range and not missing out outrageously per a degree of missed hyzer. The obvious contender for grippy dirving putters Vibram sole fades much earlier and harder. A distinct tunnel advantage to the Mercy and i felt much more at ease with the mercy stepping onto the tee in tunnels and especially in an uphill tunnel. Piece of cake. I think i need to get a lighter one for putting because i'm all about glide and straightness and the fade is harder than with Ions, APXs, Rattlers and Anodes. Even though the glide is better than with the Sole my 175 Mercy loses out to my 166-168 Ions, Anodes and APX so i need to see how the glide compares weight for weight. If it is good enough i don't need to use the APX or the Rattler and gain a lot in wind tolerance. Even though the 175 Mercy did lift in driving and putting in the wind. Only the beefiest of putters wouldn't have in the winds i faced. So a great point in favor of the Mercy again in being fairly wind tolerant. Only the Sole and FLX Challenger compares out of tacky putters there.
