I've always heard that GLs season a little faster than Opto. Can't speak to RGLs.

If you ever get a chance to find a Grip Line Pure jump on it. I have been throwing mine for a while, not as long or as much as my opto, and it is a little less stable and has incredible glide as well. Where my opto finishes between straight and slight 15' left (rhbh) the grip will finish about 10-15' to the right. I wish that they still had grip line plastic, it reminds me of a GL that beats up a little more and, has great grip. Whouda thunk it.

My year old one still is stable, I'm guessing it would take forever to beat in. Would a RGL or GL Pure beat into understable quickly? I'd use my Zeros but they are way too grippy, I like a driving putter that will slide/skid along the ground.
I have a zero hard I am beating up for this slot.
it does have more grip than opto, But it's still nothing like med.

I've got some Zero Hards on the way to switch over for the summer (it was 75 degrees at lunchtime today and my black Zero Mediums showed some flex when out in the sun) so I will give one a try. That darn Opto just doesn't beat in at all (which is wonderful and terrible at the same time).

Felt one of the Opto Pure's the other day and really liked the feel of it. I have a hard time finding a comfortable grip when driving with putters and like the shallow rim on it. Any difference in flight between the recycled and the opto?

recycled are domey and just different flying IMO. if its a flatter opto pure its a winner. Recycled domey will have more exaggerated flight from fresh to beat whether it be talking about the fade or turn while flatter opto pures define "stable" really.

yeah the recycled domey pures have slower flight, stall, and fade at the end. I like em best for long approach shots, but i rarely carry one. I do know some guys that putt exclussively with the RGLs. They get pretty grippy after a few months.

I like my Opto Pure a lot for driving off the Tee, especially when I want a little more speed and skip at the end of the flight. If I want it to stick I use my Black Zero Lines.

I wondered about that coating if it was like the old GRIP line where it was slick as snot and shinny as glass when new but became rubbery goodness.

I sent off a river that had been used and felt like a really nice pro-ish blend so can see that for sure.
