I think you have the AP/SP swapped. My AP is definitely firmer than my SP. My SP has warped from sitting in my bag incorrectly. It is easily reshaped, but my AP hasn't suffered the same fate in warmer temps. Maybe the black SPs are softer than the rest...?

I have a SP that I bought about 4-5 years ago and the rigidity is similar to a Blowfly now but still very stable. It is super soft also.

I had a pink that was like that after a year+ of hard playing but never lost any HSS and always kept a good fade they are almost TOO overstable when new for regular use!

I've only had two Sini so I wasn't sure.

I generally prefer firmer discs, but I've had the SP in the bag all winter since my AP is white. I've thrown it a bunch on my local pitch and putt that is riddled with gravel, and it hasn't shown a whole lot of damage. For such a soft feeling plastic (the disc is still pretty firm), I have been really happy with its durability. My soft feel Soft Wizard looked like it'd been through a war zone after one round there.

yeah IMO its similar to vibram where their firm discs are actually less durable than the softer more rubbery ones.. I loved the discs for what they were supposed to be but had little use for such OS putters unless it was super windy. AP/SP makes a good putter combo though with a spike like disc for those US shots'

Both are more durable imo than current runs of putter plastic from lat. more like forgiving gold-line in durability aspect but not the feel at all.

I'm still confused about the plastic choice:
My (online) shop offers:
- Zero Line Hard
- Zero Line Soft
- AP Zero Line
Which plastic should I use if I want it to be most durable using it for drives.

I've had both and AP and SP Sinus. They both have been plenty durable for me off the tee throwing on gravel-riddled fairways. The SP has had one really bad tree hit and folded over a little. It was pretty easily worked back into place. The AP hasn't seen a similar hit to compare.
