Opposite for me. I used the Pures first because of the fandom surrounding them (from Latitude users, anyways). But moved to the Spike when Zero Soft hit production. I still use an Opto Pure for driving but only because it's the closest thing to a Spike. So we'll see how the RGL ones hold up.

Uh ohs. Because of your favorable posts about the Spike I wanted to get one as my next putter. Are they not your #1 anymore? How does Pure compare?

^Spike is just a straighter pure not really US but has no fade so appears to "glide"more than a pure or makes for an easier touch shot/approach disc. When i threw these both at the same time my spikes were for upshots and long putts with pures off the tee and in the circle. Beat pure is a lot like a fresh spike. Pure is probably a titch more high speed stable but spikes do not flip over its more of a slow turn when driving them and one of the straightest discs ive ever thrown.

Plus a slightly shallower rim than a Pure. It works for my smaller hands. And the traction pads might be gimmicky to some but they give me more confidence in my grip, which is never bad.

Well that's hardly fair, Zero that smells pretty is pretty weak compared to premium plastic.

Unless they make an Opto Air Sinus, you'll never see a premium plastic Sinus. The way the plastic works in the mold, they cannot get the disc to mold into legal weights. I've had that conversation with Tomas quite a few times as I have a bunch of friends that are Sinus fanatics.

Got a recycled Spike last week. I'm ok if they don't do a GL because these are money! Maybe a touch more hss than a zero but the same minimal fade and just as much float-n-glide. Colors are a little bland but I'm going to pick up a couple more. Seems maybe a tad less durable than GL or Opto, but for this disc I think that's perfect. We'll see how they beat in.

They're (well, the ones I've got) domey like Grip Line, instead of board flat like Zero Spike. Similar flight characteristics to Grip, though I still love the feel of Grip Lines.

I'm honestly not sure if the Recycled ones are going to make my bag. I putt with Grip Line and use Zero Softs as my neutral/US driving putters, and I've got no complaints with either.
