Latitude 64 Zero Soft Plastic

Anyone got their hands on this yet? I am seeing it on DGC but not much word of it anywhere. I am curious if we are talking floppy soft, or just grippy soft. Any photos of Lat Zero Soft discs that people can post - especially in regards to flexibility - would be much appreciated.

i think dgc is just listing them seperate from the older runs of Zero. i haven't gotten a new zero line yet, but from what people say they have been out since the strawberry mercies. they just have notbeen branded 'soft zero'.

so other stores have had them, they are just lumped together with all Zeros.

From what I read, they're pulling EZE and just making their putters in Zero for now. I'm pretty sure they're still working on a baseline plastic.

I think the strawberry Mercy's are the Soft, or what they're going to call the soft. Any softer and it'd feel like a Blowfly. I want to feel the Firm Zero, my Strawberry is floppysquishy when it's hot. It's very nice in the cold though.

Only for their putters, I believe.

Any way you could post a photo of said floppysquishiness?

It's been a while since I've fondled one, but the Strawberry Mercies remind me of the really soft R-Pro Aviars. Maybe slightly firmer and grippy but not rubbery.

I talked to Rusco yesterday at DD and he said he thought they were done with the EZE plastic for various reasons. Look for Lat64 soft zero to be the same as the classic soft judge putters that DD has out now.

Yes. And a 'firm' Zero to come. My guess is that the firm Zero will be very popular. Or at leat I am hoping.

You'd have to wait til the summer

It's kind of wierd. The rim is never super flexy, maybe like a buff R-Pro Aviar, but the flight plate is super squishy when it's hot. It makes my grip feel wierd and = bad putts

But it smells pretty, so I don't care
