Zero or EZE, either are fine. Grip is a touch slicker... good approach disc, just not what I would use for a putter... then again I wouldn't use the Opto to putt with either, so take that with a grain of salt.

How do either of those compare to the Westside Eco1 putter plastic? I am familiar with that and enjoyed its grip.

Zero is probably grippier. But the EZE material feels fine to me. I'd just use it and get used to the EZE since it will be available everywhere cheap.

So here's my question: If I want to go grippy, but still firm, which plastic should I go with: Zero, Grip, or EZE/TM2? And yes, I know Grip and Zero are on the way out, but they are out there...
I love zero but its probably not as firm as you want. So EZE is probably the way to go

Yea definitely the EZE. Its closer to grip in stiffness, but much tackier like Zero. The Grip plastic is almost like Elite X so its still a little hard and slick IMO.

I really don't use my Opto or Grip for anything but drives and approaches. I definitely feel more confident in my release with a base line plastic than a premium one (same reason I stopped throwing Ions full time) so I tend to always use my Zero or TM2 Pure within 75 feet or so.

Yeah, for some reason I have been liking the premium plastics for putting lately. I think it is because the rim is real stiff. If I can find that in a baseline plastic, I will probably go for it.

TM2/EZE Pures are real stiff....I think they are more so than the optos

100% agreed. Took mine out for a one disc round at the local pitch-and-putt, and it was just a blast to throw. Super glidey, flipped up from hyzer real easy. I was getting Warship-like glide and distance, but with less power needed on the throw. This probably just means I can get more out of my Warship if I don't try to muscle it so much...

Either way, I am a Pure convert. Time to grab some more, and unload my Aviars. I love these Latitude/Westside discs.

Also just joined the Opto Pure bandwagon! Didn't think there was a disc out there that could kick my soft Anode outta the bag, but this disc did it. Very smooth flight, smooth release outta the hand, and able to work tons of different lines. All around an awesome disc. Had to order some EZE Pures to try out now, as well as a couple more Optos.
