Good hearing from you again, and thanks but no thanks I dont support any religion affiliation none the less thing a certain season is designated to religious celebration. Seems kind of grandiose and silly at the same time.

Hope all is well with you.

Oh wow dude your a joke!

http://www.clearwaterdiscgolfstore.c...grip-line-pure

That hasn't been in stock there for a few years. They are very hard to find. I wish that they still made this plastic.

Sorry I didn't specify that I meant the original Grip line pure which were awesome. I had a stack of them I sold when I wasn't working and it's the only plastic I regret getting rid of. S/DS destros and 11x fb and tbs I don't even miss. That dang original grip plastic was so unique. I still have one that's been in my bag four years and still throws beautifully.

Thanks, I'm in Tacoma right now and will drive an hour to pick them up tomorrow. Hopefully the are the flatter run, my favorite ones were flat blue ones and that's the one I still have. Seriously thank you!

Hyzer Ale 01-15-2016 01:10 PM

I am going to buy so many of these!!!

And Latitude pulls more money from my bank account. I have so many Pures at home (including Retros that I haven't even thrown yet) but still know I'm picking these up.

McFer 01-15-2016 06:42 PM

Yeah, I might buy 10 of them. Grip Line is pretty much my favorite plastic ever. It's IMO the only one of a kind plastic I've ever felt in a golf disc.

Monkeypaws 01-15-2016 06:47 PM

I'm down for one of those as well. :thmbup:

Aim For The Chains 01-15-2016 06:54 PM

About time. Why they ever stopped making the best pure plastic ever im not sure.

MikeM 01-15-2016 06:59 PM

Ah, the good old days, before I discovered the ION...Still love you Pure. I am just not IN love with you.

46YearOldSlinger 01-15-2016 07:05 PM

So... what's the deal with grip line? How does it compare with Zero soft?

sloppydisc 01-18-2016 12:28 AM

It feels more like Innova's Pro plastic than the Zero soft. Firmer, but good grip and wears slower. Cool plastic. I have a 170 in red 10/10 I'll give you for a free Coke or something if you want to give one a try. It is just hiding in my work bench anyway.

bhadella 01-29-2016 09:24 AM

So where do the Grip Line Pures get released today? My bank account needs a little draining.....

discguy42 01-29-2016 09:39 AM

Community has them up on the site but you cant buy till noon of course :D.

http://communitydiscs.com/latitude-6...r-anniversary/

KW Disc golf has them up as well:

Community has them coming in on Tuesday now due to a weather delay - but discgolfcenter has them so I just bought a few there.

bhadella 01-29-2016 01:08 PM

Got 3 pinks and 3 purples from DGC. I'm happy.

CrowLegs 01-29-2016 01:18 PM

KW is sending a couple my way, a pink and a gray! Can't wait to try them out!

JC17393 01-29-2016 01:19 PM

Dynamic is out already. My order got reduced from 7 to 5 between my clicking submit and the order processing. And that was at 12:04.

The Dynamic newsletter announcing #NewReleaseFriday arrived in my inbox at 12:13. Oops.

RistoS 01-29-2016 01:23 PM

Powergrip sold out their first stock in 7 minutes.

Dr.Smooth 01-29-2016 01:49 PM

Well can't wait to see this plastic in other molds.

I have no insider info, but I wouldn't hold your breath on that. Grip line plastic was discontinued years ago and this is a special occasion. There has been a contingent of Pure enthusiasts agitating for this run of Pures, but I don't know of any real interest in or nostalgia for other molds in Grip line.

kw83028 01-29-2016 02:06 PM

Crazy mad rush on the Grip Pures lol. We only have 5 left after the first hour. They feel so nice. It's almost like a very grippy Gold Line

Kodachrome 01-29-2016 02:49 PM

Countdown to Facebook posts selling pures that haven't even arrived yet...

anrew18 01-29-2016 04:51 PM

Do these feel anything like you would expect a Frost Pure to feel like?

I guess a Snow Pure would be close, but these are probably a bit grippier and softer than those would be.

Obviously hard to compare to something that doesn't exist. :doh: :D

They had 2 drivers. You can find them around still. Funny ass sounding plastic when it hits stuff.

MikeM 01-29-2016 07:09 PM

Anyone notice a difference in color stability with the Opto's? I had a blue Pure that I could trust to drive without turning it over and I could trust it to have a nice fade on up shots. I've own two pinks since, and they seemed much more understable.

I have a Yellow Sparkle Opto that is under stable so ya they are different

SD86 02-01-2016 10:03 PM

So what is Grip line like? And would an Opto or grip line be better for long approaches or even drives? TIA for any and all responses.

Kodachrome 02-02-2016 01:48 AM

Opto is best for drives. Gripline isn't exactly a premium plastic. It's good though. You could drive/long approach with opto and use grip for everything else.

Thanks. I have a Zero hard Pure, which works well for putting. I'll seek out an opto to go with it....

I putt with Zero Hards and use both Opto and Zero soft for other putter duties.

Soft sits better on a fast green and can kick less off of stuff.

Opto is a bit beefier and beats in slower.

The non-optos beat in quickly, and for me, allow a lower power touch shot that's straighter than the opto.

I've thrown the Pure since I started playing, 6 yrs ago. In my personal opinion, grip line plastic seems a notch below premium plastic w/great grip & feel. I have hit many trees with them and they hold up extremely well; in fact, I still have a 10 of them that I use for practice and cycle in & out of my bag.

Stability wise, they're more neutral than the opto plastic & less fade...at least now compared to 6 years when they were new.

And when it comes to an approaches or drives, it really depends on the shot. If it's a touch shot or finesse shot, I'll normally resort to the grip line pures, and a few times with the original zero line pures. Otherwise, I by default I use my goldline pures and the vip harp for driving and approaches. Goldline pures I can rip on them and not worry; they're very predictable. I love driving with them!

Needless to say I carry the original zero line, grip line, & goldline plastics in my bag. Can't leave home without them! :thmbup:

bhadella 02-02-2016 10:40 AM

My Zero Mediums are way more durable than they are given credit for. I've slowly taken the Opto and GLs out of the bag for them. Not saying I won't put them back in one day but the improved grip and glide of the Zero Mediums make them tough to beat.

I'm curious why Grip line isn't considered Premium. Is it because of the price or durability?

I've got few, but haven't had a chance to throw them yet. In the hand the plastic feels really similar to GStar.

Aim For The Chains 02-02-2016 04:57 PM

Its like driver pro. Gloss wears off quick and doesnt retain shape as well as premium plastic. Grip line will last for lots of drives though.

Me too, putt with Hard or Medium. Approach with Soft for less roll away potential. Drive with Opto on occasion, typically when I want the drive to be dead straight or turn over a bit, otherwise I often use my Buzzz.

I have a decent collection of Opto Pures. I'd rank the relative stability of mine as:

Opaque Neon Yellow-Green >> Opaque White/Pink > Clear Orange/Blue/Red > Clear Yellow

I suspect that non-Opto Pure throwers might not notice a difference. I like the opaque neon yellow-green ones for dead-straight flat shots out to ~250; can't really say they fade but they will do a slight left curl on hitting the ground.
