I tried a soft Pure and wasn't a fan.

Just got a zero hard Pure for putting and an opto Pure for approaches and short drives. I'm liking the combo.

I'm still a little up in the air between a DD classic hard Judge vs. the zero hard Pure for putting. They're quite similar, just debating which I like the feel of the best. Right now, being able to get the Pure in other plastics for approaches and driving is giving it the edge for me.

I switched to Judges because the bead isn't really in my way, and because the increased fade has really helped where I need to hyzer around a tree or I just need it to drop in on hyzer to keep from blowing past and going way downhill. And in terms of keeping it straight, it's just as straight as a Pure inside the circle. But that's just me. I have actually never thrown a Hard Zero. If you like one mold for all putting duties, stick with the Pure. I keep an old Zero Pure (pre-soft) next to my Hard and Soft Classic Judges for turnover shots.

Currently putting with soft judge/opto pure combo. HATE firm putters. Still waiting on the BT Swan.

Oooooh. :mrgreen: I meant I'm waiting on delivery of one that I bought in the classifieds. Just knew it would be today. Oh well. I have plenty of putters.

So I've always had trouble driving putters with a power grip.  There's always some flutter at the release, and it feels like it's really not coming clean out of my hand.  My hands are super tiny and I also have very thin fingers, putters just feel huge.  Had to switch to a loose birdie grip for driving putters, and it always drove me crazy having to switch grips depending on which disc I was throwing.

Picked up a pure today, and all I can say is WOW.  Threw it on three 230 foot holes, normal tight power grip.  Smooth as butter release, zero flutter, and just parked them.  Sure they're easy mostly open holes, but I'm just getting back from a 3 year break from disc golf and had to re-learn a bunch of stuff, and yet it feels like I've been driving pures forever.

The putting took some getting used to.  Was missing some easy putts and getting frustrated.  Then I realized I was gripping the pure pretty tight... it just felt too comfortable in my hand.  Putting with a magnet my grip was always loose because it just felt more awkward.  Well I loosened the grip on the pure, and that seemed to fix things for the most part.  The feel is still different than most other putters, but I'm pretty confident that with a couple more practice sessions I'll be putting as good with the pure as I was with a magnet.

I never had any troubles with too tight of a grip when putting. Then again I push putt.

Just bought some Medium Hard Pures. Really nice grip- close to EZE. Grippier than Grip and more desirable firmness than Zero Hard. Really tasty. Speaking of which, they smell like something familiar from childhood. Can't place it exactly, but maybe the rubber on the trap door of the TaunTaun? Or maybe just tires. Burnt rubber smell. Okay, I just smelled like ten other disc plastics and none of them have that smell. What is it? Like maybe even my sister's Strawberry Shortcake toys? Ahhh, now it's driving me nuts. Definitely a toy from the 80's that I grew up with. WHAT IS THAT SMELL?

Really hope it's the same. With temps hovering around zero for the rest of the week, I will probably be using my Zero Soft if i even bother to get out.

Was wondering if the Zero Mediums were any closer to EZE. I still have a few EZE left over but I'm glad if I need to replace any of them I could probably rotate in a Zero Medium given the chalkiness.
