Excellent post! I am shopping between the Pure and Magic, and your testing provided the exact answers I needed.

Glad I helped you out.

I've since lost the Zero line Pure... (it will come back, I know it!)... and have replaced it with a Grip line since I use it to drive mostly. I haven't really had a chance to test the Grip line yet to see how the two compare.

From there I switched to a 173g Medium Ion. It immediately felt better in my hand and the plastic/mold is resulting in a more consistent release but I find myself looking for something better.

I found multiple threads talking about shallow putters and think that may be the trick for me (mostly confidence in the grip/feel). I've narrowed it down to the spike or pure because their zeroline plastic seems to get rave reviews. From your experience which one (if any) sounds better suited for my putting style? I'd like to hear your opinion on both as true "putting" putters (not for approaches or driving).

I have a feeling that this may take awhile (I don't care to be typing alllllll night ;)), so if you don't mind call me and we can chat. Plus I don't want to hi-jack the thread. I'll pm you with my number. But if you don't feel comfortable, then I'll type for a little bit...I have homework to attend to.

I'm going to make it official. Zero Pure is now my new putter. I will keep a Wizard in my bag for upshots where the Ion doesn't feel right but other than that Wizards are going to be riding the bench for a bit.

I love the zero pure!

My primary also. Two Zeros for putting, a flat beat up Grip for annies and driving, and a slightly domey new Grip with a s**t-ton of flashing on it for a slightly more stable option.

VonDrehle,

Can you compare rim size and feel of Wizard versus the Pure? How about stability? I keep trying to get good consistnent drives with my Wizards, but can't seem to get a good grip. Everything I have tried with smaller rims has been a little too flippy for me. I liked the Spike, but found I could use my Fuse for the same shots. Any thoughts on Wizard and Pure comparisons would be appreciated. Thanks.

Sloppy, in my limmited dg career I went from Aviar to Wizard to Ridge to Pure. Granted my skill has changed significantly along the way, i still have all these putters and I continue to out-perform the others with the Pure.

Pures are very close to DX Aviars, but aren't as tall of a profile. I don't care for beefy/thick putters and the Zero Line plastic trumps DX/Pro.
Pure v. Spike.... i got 2 of each about a year ago when i wanted to try something other than wizards. The Pure is clearly taller than the spike, but the spike felt tooo thin, like putting with a core. Driving the spike was faster, but way less stable and would be hard to be accurate with it, Where as the pures could be released with a little bit of hyzer, flip flat, and glide like a Fuse. It is the easiest straight-driving putter i have thrown and has noticeably improved my approach game. Hang a bit of anhyzer for a dog leg and it'll do the trick just nicely. I also carry a fuse, but it doesn't get used much below 200ft. Yes, there is overlap, but the fuse has more distance than the Pure. Where the spike with the slim profile has the potential to bridge the distance gap between pures and fuses.

hope that helps

I may grab one when I head up to MA and hit up Marshall St. Can't go there without buying something. Then I can play with while I travel and give it a decent tryout. I've got a buddy that really likes his, but he seldom drives or approaches with it. If it wins, there'll be a bunch of Wizards in the Marketplace.

The Pure has a much smaller rim and flatter plate than the Wizard. I have smaller hands and it feels better in my hand than my Wizards ever did. I would say that the Pure is more stable then the current wizards you can get but less stable then the nice older ones, at least for putter purposes.

The fact that the Pure doesn't have a bead and has soft plastic has kept me from driving or approaching with it too much. I have thrown it in an open field and it flies very straight and lands with very little fade when used for drives. If you are looking for a driving Pure I would try the Grip plastic. I haven't personally tried it but from what I have read it is a premium plastic and can probably take the punishment that comes from drives.

khmer 04-23-2011 11:25 PM

yeah, so I just realized today that I left one of my grip line pures on the course yesterday while I was practicing. I can't believe I forgot it; now I have to buy a few more.
