I got a couple 173s and a couple 168s. My Wizards are 172s so I thought I'd get something close to that plus try some lighter ones. They feel really good. I can definitely feel a big difference innhow I can grip them. I am going up to PA for business next week so I hope they'll have their virgin flights at Tyler St Park. That'd be cool.

I gotta say, my test of Pures is going really well. I have a couple gripline that are doing great things for approaches, and a zeroline that is putting like magic. I'm going to test them for a month or two more to be sure it isn't just "new disc luck" before I declare the Wizard kicked out of my bag, but it's looking good. Which is surprising for me, I was pretty much dyed in the wool with Wizards.

During a tourney today I had several people in my groups grab my putter out of the basket for me and they always commented on how they really liked the feel of the Pure.

I really like the feel of them, but I am not sure they do anything I can't do with my Opto Fuse. Seems like for approaches and off the tee they are similar. Fuse glides a little better, but they both handle about the same. It's only been a couple rounds, but I still miss my Wizards for putting. This is going to be a struggle for me. But I do have to agree that the Pure feels very good in the hand. I'll keep at it a while and see how it goes.

Ok, I have played around 5 rounds with the Pures. So far I don't putt real well with them. I put the Wizard back in the bag for putting and started sinking putts again. But I do love the Pure off the tee and for approaches. I nailed the cage today from about 150 uphill today, and missed 2 aces off the tee by a total of about a foot. The second one banged the top of the cage, hung a second and fell out. Damn chains shook for a while. First one cruised just a bit wide. Jury is still out, but I think they will stick around for a while. What I really think would be great is an Opto or Gold Line Pure. Just a tad more stable in a great plastic. And make it in color shift while they are at it.

After about six rounds and some practice, my zero pure is a warped, hot mess. It isn't just aesthetic, it wobbles on 20+ foot putts now. So that's out. I'm still liking the grip pures for approaches and drives. Very versatile and true. I'm concerned about the long term durability of the plastic though. Time will tell, but for now, they're still in.

Wow, sorry to hear that. I have thrown a Zero pure a little bit, and even drilled a bunch of trees. It still seems fine. I guess I throw a lot softer than you. Maybe the Zero line is for putts only.

My Lord, what did you do to them that they're warped :p I rotate between 5 zero line pures for tournaments, leagues, and casual rounds; each disc has at least 15 rounds, and it doesn't include me practicing putting at home and hitting my neighbors wooden fence or my chain link fence :D and they're not warped at all...lucky for me. Sorry to hear about your warped disc. I strictly use zero line pure for putting and grip line pure for approaching and driving. This way the zero line doesn't really get tore up to pieces. Grip line are extremely durable plastics. I'd know b/c I've hit enough trees to built me a ladder from here to moon and back :D

One thing I noticed is that my Grip line Pures almost have a little dome to them. Not a lot, but enough to notice. My Zero Lines are very flat, and feel better in the hand. Anyone notice and flight differences between the two?

I had one grip line pure that was domey & was much more stable & you're correct in saying they're not as comfortable as the flat ones. I don't care for them. The other 4 grip line pures I have are flat like a board, just like my zero.
