I just putt with the mercy. I drive/approach with the opto pure. I don't really like premium plastic putters for putting. As for putts id say they are very similar in how they lock onto a line but the mercy has a tick more lss. Also I prefer the deeper feel of the mercy for putting versus the shallow pure

Thanks for the review in that case i won't buy the Mercy. For me the Pure is a bit tall and although i drive and putt with the Sole in cold and moist conditions i don't prefer it. The only reason i'd use the Mercy would be if it was so low power requirement vs Ion and mids for long putts that my make rate would shoot up from the increased accuracy and consistency. Based on that description i don't see it happening. Because the Pure dosn't glide enough for my laserish putting style preference. Ish because at short ranges it is a perfect laser and at longer ranges a mix of pitch and laser putting.
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.

DJ was smashing long putts with the Mercy the other day. That thing locks in really well on long spin/push putts

I will be more than happy to make any type of wager that I at the very least finish the year off with the Mercy. I can't blame you for making the comment but these mercy have performed better than any putter ever has for me by a long shot.

The Mercy proved itself to be a very solid mold many times now but especially today as I saw it perform in not only my hands. The Mercy was smashing the chains not only for me today but it was performing beautifully for Steezo as well. I agree many putters fly the same but there is something special with this mold. Its made putting significantly easier/more consistent for Steezo and I.


P.S. - You can talk trash when you can commit to a putter yourself : )

Oh yeah, I love my dyed comets. I have two and I'll never part with em unless I lose em. They look so bad ass while flying, trips people out all the time.

The Grip rides much better than the Mahal and is much lighter empty which translates to when it's loaded up as well. I've pretty much carried 13-19 discs the past couple years and I can say while carrying 16 with my Grip vs. my Mahal it feels much lighter, so much so that I almost forget I'm carrying my bag. Also I always disliked the way the Mahal would always tip over due to the yoke the Grip stands wonderfully. I really also am a big fan of the quiver putter pocket. I just can't say enough good things about my Grip.

Honestly you can't go wrong with either bag as they are both great. Really just comes down to what you are looking for in a bag. For me the Grip is perfect!

I'll bet that N Vector will pair with the Buzzz better than any overstable mid out there. It's got the speed of the Buzzz and is much more responsible at the end of it's flight.

Don't try a flat N Axis in your favorite Buzzz weight if you want to avoid a psychological conundrum. Trust me...don't do it. :wink:

I agree. Ive been tossing either the sanny sent or wasp but I have to agree this N Vector compliments my buzzz and comets superbly. I have been teetering with the idea of the N Axis but I didnt really care for the Axis in any of the other plastics. I do really like the Neutron plastic though
