Default AP Sinus vs. Firm Zero Sinus

How do they compare? Is one firmer/tougher/whatever? Has anyone compared both?

How about SP and Zero Soft?

Do I have the letter names mixed up? I feel like I might.

The reason I ask is I was thinking about getting a firm one. But my local shop only has SPs and APs. The Sinus shelf/rack thing is actually completely full, I guess they're not a hot seller. Anyway.

Not sure on this, but I am curious, too! I love me some Sinuses, and I only have AP and SP right now.

If the AP is anything like the old Zero plastic I would go with that over the new Hard/Soft. My Original Zero plastic beats up cosmetically but has retained its flight and shape very well. Some of the best plastic there is....i mean was.

Someone has to know, or at least have an idea.

I like the feel of the soft one more than the ap. Sticks to the chains well and parks itself on the ground pretty well too.

Works nicely for an overstable approach shot, or just putting into crazy amounts of wind. Its a bit of a specialty disc for me, but i like it.

Someone has to have held both the old Sinuses and the new Hard Zero. Even if it was on a Pure/Mace.

I gots to know.

I have Sinus AP, and while I haven't held a Zero Hard Sinus, I have held and thrown Zero Hard Pure, and at least in the Pure, the Zero Hard is definitely stiffer and harder than the Sinus AP Zero. Hard to say which one ends up being more durable, but I've been surprisingly happy with my Sinus AP's durability, even though I did have some concerns when I bought it. I think the AP has better grip than Zero Hard, and I think I'll buy more of the APs before they're gone, but I'm not in a hurry since they seem to be slow sellers here too.

The old sinus came out in AP & SP-- different from that of their other putters which were available in ZERO and GRIP LINE. All have basically been discontinued or reworked into what have come on the market the last few months. AP was a floppy/soft very grippy plastic like R-pro or med vibram putters while the SP was much more firm but tacky like the AP and more similar to today's ZERO HARD and old GRIP line mixed. The original zero was VERY chalky and soft but not floppy at all much like DX plastic and would get tore up after one round of use where the old GRIP line was like a rubbery star plastic and very slick when new but beat-in beautifully to have lots of grip in all conditions but also extremely durable-- I still have my first grip pure and it flies stable. The new plastics are different all together and I have little experience with them (now throw MVP) but would suggest a sinus AP and SP depending on the use. I liked driving the SP more but it beat-up faster being a harder plastic and was less "workable" than the AP which also seemed to have more glide. neither are as hard as todays runs, they are more "firm" than actually "hard"

I wish lat. would have never messed with the old GRIP & AP/SP lines :/ the zero was junk though so they have improved there.
