Shorter Opto Pure??

So since I added the Pure to my bag it has been a game changer! Its def taken strokes off my game and I love it. The only issue I have at times is how dang far it goes! Its the only disc I've ever tried that I can consistently throw so lazer straight. We have several holes around Charlotte that 250-300' straight, super tight, tunnels. (Example: The Gauntlet @ Hornets Nest)
The Pure can drill that gap 8/10 times for me. On shorter holes like this and approaches where I want a slightly US glidier putter, the pure can blast past it leaving me a long come back putt.

When I power it down to get the right distance, it can have a more OS flight.

I have had a really hard time finding putters to bond with, and am super happy with my Pure/Rhyno combo. I just wish I could find a Pure short.

Things I like about the Pure:
1) Low Profile
2) Rim feel
3) flat top
4) Glide/flight

Can someone reccomend a disc to compliment the Pure that is very similar in feel and flight but just shorter?? I prefer non-beaded, but I can maybe deal with one.

No Aviars though, just too deep to be comfy for me.

Thanks!

Okay, you said no aviars... but Classic Aviars (the grid stamped ones) are probably the best fit. Or give a champ Dart a try.

while im not sure it would be shorter an envy is kind of like a rhyno/pure hybrid. It definitely doesn't have as much glide as a pure though.

I also used a very beat up sinus along with my pures which was basically a shorter, more wind resistant throwing putter. Lots of OS putters similar to that one but it doesn't have the same glide at all and much more OS when brand new which will be the case for any of those kind of molds.

The Envy would be too OS, I feel like it's just overlap my Rhynos

a beat neutron definitely would not be as OS as a rhyno or the other molds I was mentioning which when new have less glide and I agree might be TOO OS but season into exactly what he is looking for and stay that way for a long time.

^the polecat is a mini deep dish pizza pan not at all low profile feel although its a hell of a upshot and driving putter.

Polecat? At the distances you're throwing Pures you should still be able to pump PC's out to 200-250'. Feel isn't really close to a Pure, but flight wise should be what you're looking for.

Edit: Buiscutboy beat me to it.

Thats interesting ya'll mention the Polecat. My buddy loves PCs, and I putt with his from time to time. Def not a bad disc. The feel is similar to the Rhyno though, which I like much better than the Aviar type putters.

I dont know what it is about the Bullet nosed type putters (Aviar, Wizard, Ion, Judge, ect) they just feel disconnected in my grip.
