I'm putting with mediums since can't get any more old zerolines in finland.

I was assured by a couple others here that Opto Pure's do NOT have any dome, even though I was looking at my 2 moderately domey ones while reading that, lol.

perhaps i should have qualified my statement. in the years i have spent looking at/throwing opto pures from various retailers here in MN and ordering them online from across the country, i have never seen one with dome. sounds like you guys have some freaks. sucks to be you.

every RGL pure i've seen, however, has been a shouldered domey piece of garbage.

it's been my experience that the pure is actually the most consistently molded lat 64 disc outside of the spike and sinus, of course taking into consideration the normal variations that occur across plastics.

It's not much, but it's there. Perhaps you don't want to see it?

i'm seriously nitpicky about my setup and how i choose my discs even though i haven't the talent to justify it. i wouldn't hesitate to go and buy any opto pure from any store including online stores, which i have largely sworn off as a primarily innova/discmania/millennium thrower, knowing that it will be flat (within reason) across the top or, if it does have a "dome," then it's unnoticeable to my hand/eye except with an upside-down visual inspection on a table top which, of course, reveals nearly all discs to have some sort of rise from the shoulder.

i'm good - there's really nothing worth seeing. you got a bad disc, so i guess it's a good thing you like the proxy. i'll be buying one today; tbird's got me piqued although i probably won't bag it. i may as well toss an opto pure again with it, maybe post up a vid with results. sounds like i've got a weekend project. :)

BTW, I have 3 Flx Challengers and 2 Evo Magics, all are high shoulder and a little taller than their base counterparts, but they're flat-topped with NO dome. The Challengers are actually slightly puddle-topped. I won't bag putters with dome.

Well, I got 2 "bad discs", and my brother got one too. That's 3 for 3. Then there's the other poster who just said "he prefers some dome on his Opto Pures..."

Wait until you throw the Proxy...famous last words. :)

mmm, but the thing is i'm not going to sub one disc in for another when the original does its job very well. if anything i'd just boot the polecats and let my seasoned kc aviars do all the work. i don't bag the pure anymore. :p this is for research purposes only.
