I am planning on grabbing myself an Opto Pure (my wife confiscated my opaque bubblegum pink) and giving it a tryout for approaches and drives off the tee.

My man crush on the Rhyno has been strong, but I think I will have a full latitude 64 only lineup before the end of the year.

I just need to find a comfortable driver for forehand shots. I'm thinking the Bolt.

Dude, glad to hear the Fuse is back. If you can stick to the Mercy, or hell, even the Opto Pure, for all shots under 250, you're golden. The Fuse can definitely be used for anything above 250, as I'm sure you know. It's a great thing when you start relying on putters for things you used to use a mid for, and of course, using mids for what you used to use your fairways for and so on.

Have you pushed your striker/saint distance past 320 yet?

I dropped a sick 340' drive with the Saint, but I don't push for big distances. I rely on smooth form (which has been off lately) and placement. I also haven't gone out to a field to just throw for D in a while.

Well Lat64 and smooth go hand in hand.

As far as the Rhyno dependency goes...

I've had a Sinus SP for a couple of days now. I really like it, if Pro Rhynos were $50 and I lost mine I'd probably make the switch full-time. Feel is nice, and it's plenty overstable. But as I went out to league night, I couldn't leave the Rhyno at home. And sure enough, I hit a scramble shot with my Rhyno that involved a mando, a rough angle and a basket on a hillside I simply trusted my Rhyno to make happen. I might just keep it in a side pocket and pull it out for special occasions, like the Billy Baroo. But the Sinus is at least a pretty decent challenger, I'm looking forward to throwing it more.

Nice add.
I got similar advice a while ago about replacing my Rhyno with a Pure for driving. Still love the feel of Rhynos though, probably could never stop putting with them without serious practice time, big hole to bury my Rhynos in, and concrete to fill the hole.

So I quit cold turkey... done with the Rhyno. It was a difficult decision, but the Pure and Mercy work very well for me.

It will only hurt for a little while and now you have your all Lat Bag.

Are you going to make an all GL or colorshift Lat bag now?

My next step will be finding a suitable forehand driver.
