Mostly spin putt.

Tinkered a bit with push putts and found a touch more accuracy with push putts inside 20 feet but anything longer than that and I was all over the place. So I went back to spin putts.

I've tried the Opto for putts, and while I putt pretty well with it, to me it feels a bit too gummy to get a perfect release every time.

Thanks for the help!

I putt with Pures and prefer the Mediums and Hard Zero plastic. The soft and mega soft tend to warp really fast and the warped plate doesnt inspire confidence for me. Usually go with Zero Hard for hot/warm months and then move to Zero Medium for the colder weather. My advice would be to avoid Soft/Mega Soft and stick to Medium and above.

Thanks for the advice...I thought that might be the case.

I really liked my Medium...seemed to have the right amount of tack for an easy release. When I bought it though I was looking to use it for everything - and since the Lat 64 website said the medium was for use with everything I went with it (and it even got a little warped pretty quickly after a few tree hits). Wasn't sure if since I was only putting with it now if I needed to go softer.

Again, I appreciate your input!!!

Just use your hands to unwarp your medium Pure. It's all part of the tuning process.

Would love to do that but last week I threw a beautiful 200+ foot drive with it between 6 trees...unfortunately it landed in a 30 foot wide stream that was muddy and flowing quickly because of rains the night before. It is gone

I primarily push putt and prefer the Classic (same as Zero Hard) for my Wardens. The Classic stiffness pops off my fingers better during the push.

I also bag a Classic Blend (same as Zero Medium) for the occasional spin putt. The Classic Blend has more grip allowing for more spin and control. Also sits well after a miss!

The Soft is a little too "floppy" for my putting styles. Any quick upward arm motion during the putting stroke seems to cause a fluttery release...
^^ Repeat everything here for me, substituting Classic & Classic Blend with Lucid. I do use a Classic Soft for approaches to sloped greens, or layup putts that I want to stick and not roll away.

Welcome to the lost disc club. Time to replace that one.

How big of difference is the grip between the hard and the medium?

Thanks!

They are quite a bit different. The med has some give to it. The hard is very firm with very little give to the flight plate. The hard is also slicker feeling than the med.

Thanks for the information.

I better go with the Zero Line Medium again then.

Putted pretty well with the Aviar Classic today but it felt a bit slick...looking for something in between it and the feeling of my Opto Pure (which is a bit too 'sticky' for me to putt with).

Love the feel of my P2 Psycho in D-Line, just don't putt too well with it.
