after driving with all of these, i see now why you have a PA2, a pure and a wizard. i may wind up with a similar setup. as fun as this experiment with mold minimizing has been, it may be time to go back to more slots now that i have improved much since the summer. i will be putting out an amber alert with the locals for my mercy and ordering another. it may be the putter i'm looking for.
Glad to hear that you liked the PA2. I don't throw mine often compared to my Pure, but when I do it's money.

How was the dome on the ZH Mercy? One of the things that sealed its fate was how much more comfortable the Pure felt being flat. I never threw the Strawberry Mercies I bought, but they were flatter than the EZEs.

i noticed the ZH had a bigger dome than the soft in the store and a higher shoulder - not as high as a wizard, though. the soft was definitely flatter with a lower shoulder. if i wind up going with the mercy, i'd probably do what i used to do with my pures - one in ZH for driving/putting, one in ZS for approach duties. if they made an opto mercy . . . hmmm . . .

right now it's all up in the air, though. i have no idea what i'm going to do. throwing the opto pure again was an absolute blast and the ZH pures were just what i'm missing for those turnover drives.

i could see myself throwing a zone, a pa2/1 and zh/zs mercies as my lineup. i could also see myself throwing zone/envy/pures.

putters are really the hardest thing to lock down, aren't they? anyway, the mercy did throw very similar to a warlock. had more HSS/LSS than the opto pure, but not by a whole lot.

it wasn't super-dome. it was definitely more, but not enough to make it uncomfortable. despite being a deep-dish sort of putter, the mercy is very easy to get a grip on. i really liked the feel.

i've got a wanted thread up for zero hards if anybody has a fresh one or 9/10.

Just got my second ZH Mercy today. One for driving/upshots the other for putting. Both are flat. Mint green and light blue. Great driving putter. The Pure is just too fast for my taste. More like a small diameter mid.

I've seen some people throw Envy comps out there with the Mercy. I'd putt with the Envy if it wasn't so pricey to snag a few for practice. Can anyone (cough tbird cough) give me some profile and flight comparisons?

I've thrown both, but I don't see the similarities. I remember the Mercy being considerably slower and with less fade than the Envy. It doesn't have anywhere near the HSS the Envy (Rhyno level HSS in my experience) does either. I would throw the Envy into a pretty serious headwind without worrying about it flipping. I wouldn't throw the Mercy in that condition.

I will admit that I haven't fully gotten the hang of the Envy though. Some times it fades for me, other times it doesn't. The times it has faded, it's more forward fading than I remember the Mercy being. Will post a profile pic soon.

Thanks tbird. I would be using the Mercy for in the circle. I like how the Envy feels and flies, but it is expensive and I prefer a baseline putter. Is the Mercy considerably more domey?

mercy is not domey. it is not low profile but it is comfortable in the hand; coming from wizards i could feel the difference big time.
