I just picked up the zero medium Sinus for an os putter. I'm liking it so far. What is the benefit to the hard ass plastic? It just doesn't seem appealing to me for a putter. I say that, but the lucid judge might be super similar to the plastic you're talking about.

Yes, ban me from dgcr forever for asking a relevant question as to why he likes the hard plastic. God forbid I include some backstory as to why im asking.

You sir, need to go get laid and/or get an ace and relax.

For push putters, a hard plastic is ideal. Different putter styles have different advantages and disadvantages. Though you might like a softer putter to grab chains, a push putter simply can't apply as much power to the soft disc. So I look at it as a trade off when I use firm plastic. From far away, I can effortlessly get good distance and glide, but if I just touch a few chains, chances are it won't go in.

So I've decided to keep with the firm plastics (I push putt with McPro Aviars) to maintain that distance, and just work on hitting the center chains everytime. If you are a player that tends to rely on your putter catching the outside chains to go in (which would've blown by tonals), then stick to the soft putters. Pro-tip which I was told recently: "lofting" the putter (when push putting of course) with the nose up gives your disc a better advantage for "grabbing chains" and dropping in. Its tricky, however, because you have to control the arc depending on the distance. But if you are darting the push putt, then you will grow to hate firm plastics whenever you watch them bounce out.
