It's still listed as an available plastic type on Lat64s website.

Edit: https://www.dynamicdiscs.com/Latitud...ter-p/2115.htm looks like the new standard Opto stamp...so they must still be running them.

Pures are my main throwing putters (bookended by a Polecat and a Zone). I only have 'em in Zero plastic, but I've been wanting to pick up an Opto or GL. Seems like Optos are readily available, so I don't think they're OOP.

Nice necro bump.

A few months back I re-tried the Opto Pure for straight-to-understable shots. Also tried the Gold Line Pure for those shots. They did okay, but I decided to go in another direction.

I've been throwing a GL Pure a little bit lately and it's a solid flip to drift right thrower. It's really funny too b/c it has a Harp dye max type stamp on it, flippiest Harp ever lol. Reminds me of a putter version of the Core. I should get an Opto Pure just for DGCR nostalgia.

Overall yes...I do like some of Lat64s more classic molds though and my first ace was an Opto Pure (River, Sinus, Pure, Striker, Vision etc.)

My first Eagle was with a Recycled Pure. Love the flight and the feel, but I debagged it as I can't get a replacement if I lose/break it.

Lat64 has some very nice molds, but the worst premium plastic in the business.

Yeah...I'm gonna disagree with you on that one.

GL will beat in, but once it finds it's sweet spot, it will stay there for a long time.

That was my bag with a core and primitus or whatever the hell that stupid "signature lat 64 dome" was driver in the grip line plastic that made the oddest sound hitting trees or chains. Like a low rubber drum beat.


**** those old strikers were the straightest things.... Loved those stupid ass clear greens
