As a push putter, I like a faster putter like a Pure that will get to the basket. And a shallow/beadless putter comes out cleanly for me.

So if you like a bead and slower putters, get a Judge.
If you like beadless and fast putters, get a Pure.

Since both discs are manufactured by Latititude, the plastic is the same but with different names.

Classic = Zero Hard
Classic Blend = Zero Medium
Classic Soft = Zero Soft

Classic Hard is great for push putts. I do better with my Summits for spin putting but that might just be due to the lighter weight (175 / 170).

Off the tee, the classic hard starts off slightly overstable and beats in quickly to dead straight. The plastic gets battered but holds up pretty well to dings and gashes. Also have the classic blend but haven't thrown those off the tee yet. Comparing the hard and blend, the plastic has the same tacky feel... only difference is the flexibility and it isn't a huge difference. Don't have any interest in trying the softs.

I would eventually like to have a putter line-up of Fuzion Judge, Classic Judge, Classic Warden.

How would you compare a zero Pure to a Warden? I haven't tried the Warden yet.

I wasn't going to switch from wizards to judges... I really wasn't. I like the eraser wizards too much. But then this blend came out. And I switched.
The classic is definitely closer to Gatway Soft than SS but it really depends on the specimens you compare. First run classic judges are a little bit softer. The production stamps and all the other current runs are firmer and pretty close to the Soft from Gateway. Then of course you have a variation in the Gateway plastics. I used wizards before switching to the judge and I used Soft Wizards. I had some that were super firm and others that had a little flex to them. I really enjoyed Wizards but the Judge just fits my hand like it was made for me personally.

I've haven't thrown a Warden but in the hand it feels deeper than a Pure. Very similiar to a P&A to me.

I used softs and then moved to erasers. I'm still not used to judges off the tee or for approaches, I still need my wizards. But for putting, all judges, all day.

Previously putted with the ZERO Hard Pure: The Warden measures and feels deeper in the hand, but the smoother rim bottom releases better for me on putts and "touch" upshots. The Warden also has a touch more stability and glide than the Pure, while being a pinch slower.

I prefer the Classic (Hard) for Pitch putting and driving, Classic Soft for Spin putting and all manner of upshots. I'm getting *almost* comparable distance off the tee to the ZH Pure; the Warden just takes a little longer to get there...

If ur looking for a stiff slick putter than the judge is not for you. If they come out with a stiffer slicker blend then the classic then maybe but even the classics have way to much tack to them.

I use the judge for off the tee and not putting. The best off the tee is the lucid plastic. Amazing glide. The next best was the soft judges as they break in very nicely and have nice glide. All of the hards were glideless and I was getting as much as 20 ft shorter drives from them. I have found that hard has a lot less glide for all the putters that comes fomr the lat family. I have tried the Pures in hard, Judges and Sinuses.

I'd prefer the fuzion for upshots and driving. The moonshine lucid air is nice and they do have the extra glide and stability but so do dyemax or emac fuzions and they're much easier and cheaper to get. If the lucid air moonshine or just lucid air goes into production anytime soon then I'd say that would be the way to go.
