I would say there is a ton of overlap with the anode. I dont think it would be necessary to have both in the bag. I have noticed a little more fade at the very end of the flight with the opto pure where the anode fades even less, if at all. Driving I would think that the anode will be a little longer because of the gyro glide that is amazing. The Pure will hold a better anny line for sure, the anode loves straight.
YMMV.

There is also a anode vs opto pure thread somewhere that should help.

I use to throw a z ringer for drives off of the tee. i got an opto pure since z ringers aren't in production. i could throw a z ringer straight on holes 250 and shorter. what should i expect from my pure

Straight money opto pure has been called a mini buzz by many. Never thrown a ringer but at that d my opto pure is all I would throw unless there is a ton of wind.

Bought one from the MP and had a chance to check it out over the weekend.

So far, it doesn't do anything better than my Axis.

That's very impressive then since the Pure is a putter and the Axis is a mid.

I have been using the opto pure more and more and I am starting to come around on it. It can hold the short anny line that i needed in the bag. Can make this thing go like a mini fuse. The distance off the tee is impressive too. It has finally beat out the anode.

The more i use the opto pure the more i love it. Combined with a zone theres pretty much not a shot i cant cover for my short midrange game and short tee game.

The pure is capable of pretty solid distance. I can throw it about the same D as an ion, maybe the just as far. That's totally fine for me because at 325+, when it matters im not throwing a putter anyway. Id rather slow down and throw a mid or fw depending on the wind and the line. But this disc is capable of lots of things. A few people ive played with are replacing seasoned buzz's with it, dunno if id recommend that personally but it says a lot for a buzz thrower or two, to be that confident in a shorter slower disc right away.

I would agree with that. Have kept 3-4 buzzes in my bag for years, and been trying different putters to fill gap between JK aviar and buzz... This disc is IT.

Got one 2 weeks ago, and this will be the fastest any disc has ever gone into my bag for tournaments... Love its consistency and ability to hold the line it is put on, just like the buzz but for those shorter approaches.
Don't think I'll be putting with it, but approaching is solid and crisp - delivering what I expect it to do every time. Easy to put on a line in the woods also...
Great disc, at least for me.

I got a round in at a local course with my new opto and TM2(EZE) pures.

The opto pure just straight with very little effort. I found myself flipping it hard if i tried to really put anything on it. By putting a little bit of power behind it, I got it to flip up and turnover. Nice glide and almost aced a hole with it. I threw an anhyzer and it held it and flew right by the chains.

My TM2 pures were given putting duty today instead of my ringer. It has some glide on it as well as I hit a 60 ft putt with it that I normally would have been short if I had used my ringer. I only had one bad putt with it where it landed on its side inside the basket and bounced out.

It definitely will have a place in my bag. I will need to put a zone in my bag for drives that I need to really crank and have a hyzer finish.
