Are the zero hards any more stable than the mediums? out of the box my medium was the stability I was looking for, but got beat up in just a few days. I probably will end up with an opto, although I much prefer the baseline feel on throwing putters

My experience with my Wardens and Judges is that they start out about the same in Classic (hard) and Classic Blend (equivalent of Zero Hard and Zero Medium, respectively). The Mediums/Blends do beat in fast, as you said...

Funny, I've never really had my Zero Mediums season in faster than I wanted. First one lasted almost 3 years till I pulled it out the bag (the bottom edge was gouged/bent enough I had trouble with releasing) and the second one has 2 years on it and is still my straight Pure. I do know guys that have flippy Soft Pures after a few months of use.

I should clarify my above post that when I say a Medium/Blend beats in "fast", I mean it loses its fade pretty quickly and just flies straight. Doesn't become flippy/understable all that fast, though.

Now that is a statement I can get behind. And that's the reason I love that plastic, if I want a stable Pure I throw my Envy!

For me, yes. My Moonshine Pure has become my main upshot putter for just about any line that doesn't require the Harp or Spike.

When using a Pure for putting purposes only, what plastic has everyone used and what is your favorite?

In looking at the information about them on a certain website it give the following numbers in terms of durability/softness/grip:
Zero MegaSoft 4/9/7
Zero Soft 4/8/9
Zero Medium 4/7/8
Zero Hard 3/4/7
Retro 4/6/7
Opto 8/4/4
Gold Line 7/4/5

Do these numbers seem about right to you?

I thought as the plastic got softer the durability would go down. I have used a Medium, wished it was a little more grippy, and it seemed get beat up pretty quickly. If the Soft would hold up just as well then I might as well be using it to get my extra grip.

Anyway, thanks for the info.

All baseline plastics are going to look beat up pretty quickly if you're putting with them. Scuffs, dings, etc. However, you could putt for years with a baseline putter and have no real noticeable change in flight characteristics when putting.
Your medium will likely get a bit grippier as you use it more. Additionally, every so often I give my putters a bath in soapy water and it removes some of the dirt and grime and restores some of that tack. Works quite well.
You may like soft, but I found that in warmer temps it was just too malleable.

As mush as I love Pures, I just cannot putt with them. They are basically my shorter Buzzz/Truth/Core whatever.
