I've thrown Spikes and they are pretty good neutral to understable putter for drives and approaches. Kind of like an XD. I'm trying to use the Wizard for all those shots so I have benched the Spike, but it is a good disc.

Ok. I got an email out to Dave to try to see if he could get me just what I want as far as firmness.

Anybody got a Pure in a lighter weight? A buddy of mine has been looking for one in the 165-168 or so range.

Mines 172

I got a response back from Dave and he was trying to explain the names of their S, SS and SSS plastics and trying to sell me 5 for $40, which is a good deal but I dont think I need start with 5 to try, and it seems like he was not getting or acknowledging that I was getting at how some SS feel like mediums.

Maybe I should just PM Discspeed and see what hes got down there.

I have given up on my spikes. I know every disc can roll but I have had so many roll aways, weird bounce outs and other strange things with my spike that I just had to let it go. I loved it, was comfortable with it but it turned its back on me too many times.

This is the old, funky rubbery zero that felt like a million bucks.

Default Pure vs. Magic

I just did some light testing on a Zero Pure vs. a Soft Magic.

Both discs are beat about equally 6/7 out of 10.

Test was done indoors from standing still throwing a distance of around 100 feet. Ceiling was around 10 feet.

Speed: Pure was faster. It got to the target area quickly while the Magic moseyed along.

Glide/float: I'm not really positive I can seperate glide vs. float so I'm putting them together. The Magic definitly had more float. While the the Pure had nice glide getting to the target area quickly and smoothly, the Magic seemed to float like it was held up with a balloon.

Height: The Pure liked a low line. Direct, point to point is how I'd describe it. The Magic needed more headroom to work it's way to the target.

HSS: For the speed/style I was throwing the discs they seemed pretty equal in high speed stability. I would rate it as a zero to -1. Note though the short distance I was throwing, I was not throwing them very far. Any difference between the two was probably due to the thrower.

LSS: The Pure was definitly more low speed stable. If thrown up high it will stall out and fade quickly and hard. The Magic on the other hand stayed relatively flat and just floated to the ground.

My opinion:

The Pure seems to like low fast lines. It will go where you aim it as long as you get it there quickly. I think of the two it is better suited as a "Driving" putter. The shape of the rim although about as deep as the Magic feels more comfortable in my hand with a driving grip. It reminded me more of an XD than an Aviar.

The Magic was a slow floater that needed more height. It gave of feeling of confidence knowing you didn't have to put a ton of speed to get it to where you wanted it. This disc (for me) would work better for controlled upshots than driving off the tee.

That's it. As a putter I think I'll go for the Magic as I'm more of a lob/loft "throw the phone book on the table" putter. For someone who likes to power it into the chains though the Pure may be the disc of choice.

Oh, weights were 171g for the Pure and 172 for the Magic. Past the 5 minute mark...

Thinking of trying the pure or magic on jump putts beyond 45'. My banger gt fades more than I like on long putts. Any thoughts?
