I use a razor blade to trim flashing often once you get the hang of it it's pretty easy and turns out great.

I just use concrete. Find smoother concrete and it works great.

Every single Opto Pure I've owned has hit basket or chains off the tee, and the only RGL I threw got me a ridiculously lucky ace.

It's been tough to take the Comet out of my bag, but the Pure gets used like a Comet/Buzzz hybrid and it may just replace that combo permanently. I lost two Opto Pures a couple of years ago and never put them back in until recently.

Got a bubblegum pink Grip in, this plastic feels amazing. Surprisingly stable but I can't wait until it beats in to the gentle turnover machine that is my pink Opto. The grip feels so right for touch approaches.

HiFi 03-04-2016 05:59 PM

Yeah it happened yesterday. Ace on hole 4 North Iwen, 175g dayglow opto. I have a feeling there will be more with this disc.

Congratulations!

I think I posted about getting my Opto Pure, a nice 174g in easy-to-see orange and with the bonus of having speckles/flakes embedded for a really great look. I've been throwing the Opto Pure around, and it is amazingly straight. But even more... is the distance I'm getting.

With this disc I am driving well over 200 ft., and even approaching that 250 ft. distance. This is "mid" distance for me; certainly no other putter is getting me anywhere near this (I'm happy with 200'+ with the Colt on a drive).

The past couple of weeks have been very windy. Sunny and windy. Cloudy and windy. The winds have been relentless; I think I've been transported back to Kansas, Dorothy. :D Seriously, the Pure has held up really well in the winds, though in headwinds I'm using more overstable discs.

Welcome to the Core Bag, Opto Pure! :thmbup:

tjh0188 03-04-2016 07:34 PM

I can consistently throw a pure 300 with enough room. Its so easy! Welcome to the club man. I'll never be without an opto pure or an opto fuse.

What are people's thoughts on putting Pures? I'm looking for a new putter and considering trying the Pure for it's lower profile

I have a Zero Hard Pure (plastic being the same as DD's Classic) and it's a good putter. I do tend to like the lower profile putters like the Judge and Warden, so the Pure is not too much different.

Right now I'm still preferring my Classic Warden, but I can see the Zero Hard and Opto Pures in my bag as a set.

I putt with an Opto Pure.
It's straight, glidey, doesn't budge when I grip it tight.
The fact that it's thinner means that I can hold it easier and it snaps out of my hand with a cleaner release.

It is quite popular putting putter, with one putting World Championship on its' belt as well, so surely it will work just fine.

Personally I tried it and when I was making the puts it felt really nice. The problem, for me, was that due to the lower profile it was really fast for a putter and would go long ways if I missed it.

Eventually I changed to Macana that is more floaty in its' flight and the results have been really good. I guess the same logic applies to Wizards, KCs, Challengers, Daggers and many other popular putting putters.

How are the Retro Pures?

mattc 03-09-2016 09:48 PM

Just put optos back in my bag.

Can't blame you for that. Pures are... well, pure. :) :thmbup:

djin 03-10-2016 02:51 AM

Been tossing a 10 year grip line Pure and not really loving it. It has less glide than my opto Pure. Going to leave it in my bag for now, I just hope it breaks in to something I like better.

I agree on the lesser glide part, but for me it is not an issue. Putters are not supposed to be your max distance discs anyway and there is room in the bag for both plastics.

The Grip line is decently stable and the holds its line quite reliably. It has also held on to its' stability through quite a beating, which is always nice. :thmbup:

ThomasOrion 03-11-2016 12:50 PM

I picked up a couple of pures, a Recycled and an Opto.

I'll just talk about the Opto now, It feels great, flies ok....the only problem, is that sometimes its very straight to stable, but other times it has carried a lot longer on an anhyzer and is hard to control. I was hoping it would be a laser straight flyer, it could have been the wind, it would have been OAT, but I feel a little shakey using this disc now....ive been crutching on the Atom as its very similar but doesnt carry ANny as long.....idk.....are some pures more HSS than others? its Opto white 176g

tbird888 03-11-2016 01:08 PM

If you want a laser-straight flight, the Proxy is a better option. The Opto will beat into that to a point, but I never got mine to lose its "fade" completely.

ThomasOrion 03-11-2016 01:55 PM

The Opto pure is occassionally to High speed understable, thats the issue, I'll play with it some more and see how I feel about it.
still think ill be using the atom more, especially if it comes out in premium plastic

tjh0188 03-11-2016 05:00 PM

The pure isn't necessarily a finesse disc in opto. If you want a disc that holds annies longer, try a hard pure or a lighter soft one.

tjh0188 03-11-2016 05:26 PM

On the other hand, if you want a more stable pure, throw a shield.

ThomasOrion 03-11-2016 05:30 PM

yeah I never wanted any anny out of it.....never mentioned that one bit. Pa4 is $ for anhyzers and im not wanting a change in that. I got a Glow Pa3 thats working just fine as a straight flyer for short range. But if the Pure was ever given a re-tooling, I could see it being perfect

It's darn near perfect now. No need to retool. Now if they want to put out a new mold that takes care of what you're looking for, that'll be fine. But leave the Pure alone! :)

But the shield is has a very deep feel compared. And a big bead if I remember correctly.

tjh0188 03-11-2016 07:02 PM

Medium shields feel like a slightly meatier pure. A little taller. Its got a bead as much as a pure has a bead. Hard shields feel a lot deeper as well as the premium plastics.

tjh0188 03-11-2016 07:09 PM

Sorry, guess I misunderstood what you were saying. To me, shields and pures are the perfect complement to each other. Shield fades a little more but holds straight and doesn't turn, pures turn a little bit and fade less. Both in medium plastic. They feel almost identical to me. Shield is just a little deeper. Medium shields want to fight out of Anny near the end.

ThomasOrion 03-14-2016 12:11 PM

Its all good. Actually I got out with the Pure again. It really is a great disc. I think I was just powering it too much hence the anny lines.

But if I throw with more control its a nice short range glider.

Broken Shoulder 03-14-2016 12:46 PM

That's kind of weird. The Opto Pures I have are all stable line-holders that could take all the power I could ever give them. Half the time I could throw the Pures farther than my mids.

Yup.

My Optos never turned over on flat or slight hyzer releases (unless there was a headwind). Then again, I've never thrown a Pure farther than 275' (on flat land). Monster power might get it to leak understable.

I do prefer Zero Mediums over Opto/GL for my Pures now. Amazing grip and more durable than I ever thought they would be.

Yup, same here at or a little beyond 300'. Any turnover was my fault or wind aided.

Must be my grip but the mediums tore the hell out of my knuckle. I had to stop throwing them.

I've had to sand down monster flashing from every Pure I've owned. A 120 grit sanding block takes off of the big stuff and then a 180 grit is for touch-ups. I won't throw any disc unitl the bottom is silky smooth.

HiFi 03-14-2016 09:24 PM

I have the same problem with Optos and the GL. I use tape to keep it from getting too bad. Hurts so good baby.

Snaques 03-15-2016 02:46 AM

I'm really loving the Grip Pure.

To me it is really close to a Gstar / Snow plastic. Someone said it would be of lesser quality, but I just don't see that. I've been throwing mine since the day they re-released them and it is holding up really well. Any Zero version would be so banged up by now that it would hurt my eyes.

Stability-wise it's also perferct. I guess it's close to a new Opto. I can throw it full power and get no turn and practically no fade.

spahnandsain 03-28-2016 02:21 PM

Anybody got a white opto for sale? All pures are awesome...that is all.

JamesXC 03-28-2016 08:18 PM

I finally found a heavy Opto Pure after looking for most of 6 months and I must say that I am impressed. The thing just goes straight. A little hyzer and it will hold the line all the way to the ground. I little turn likewise. It is rapidly becoming the only disc I reach for between 75-200'. I finally found a replacement for the Champion Classic Roc that Innova refuses to make anymore.

Just got my second Opto Pure and fourth Pure overall. Guess it's my good luck that none of them have had any flashing at all...

Jaylikesbeer 03-29-2016 09:52 PM

Of all the pures I've had I have never seen any flashing. I will say my opaque opto pure was money I wish my new clear opto pure flew like my old. :(

eric40817 06-01-2016 09:07 PM

Just wanted to stop by here and say that on Monday I was at Maple Hill and picked up my first two Pures out of curiosity (for putting not driving). Zero Hard and Medium...

rjaco 06-01-2016 09:35 PM

I have a medium that I have been putting with and a grip line in the mail to use as for driving and up shots.
