Okay.... initial results are in... am truly in love with this disc. from the tee they can take all my power without flipping and hit 300 easy at a 10ft cruising height. very minimal fade. It really does fly like a mini buzz/core. The grip is fantastic. I smacked a tree or two not on purpose. It hardly ricocheted at all, unlike the Grips that bounce off like superballs. Skipped it across cement road. Obviously no durability issues. Very accurate on forced hyzer and anhyzer. Just holds that line beautifully... just like a Z comet does.

The only downside i found was putting.... they don't have the same loft Zeros or Grip have and i routinely fell low on putts. But after a few holes i just muscled it a little more to correct it.

These discs are exactly what i was hoping Opto Pures would be. Cant wait to get the TM2s and start putting!

Dare I ask, how do you think they'd complement an Ion/Wizard type disc?

Buzz is to Roc as Pure is to Ion.... if you follow me.

But we all know how wizards vary and change over time. I haven't thrown a HPP wizard at all, but i would expect it to fly like a new SS or Ion. More fade sooner. The Pures fly faster in the air being lower profile. These discs seem to hold their velocity well.

I threw prerubes medium anodes a handful of times and I think the anode had less High speed stability. But i hardly gave them a good test.

Not helping. I don't even have my TM2 Pures in hand yet and I already want to try the Opto. Guess there are worse issues to have.

I got to fondle with the Opto and TM2 pures. The TM2 pure are grippy..reminds me of zero plastic for sure. I'll be excited to test them out.

I got two opto's, one in 176 and 176.5 from volo disc sports and got to play a round of 18. I can not remember how stable the grip pure's when new b/c all of mine are over a year old however, they are a tad more stable than the grip pures, which i use strictly for up shots and driving. I definitely like them and can't wait to test them some more on drives. Once they beat in, I think I'll like them even more.
