Default opto pure?

hey disc golfers, just wanting to know why the opto pures are so sought after? any time I see them in the marketplace they sell very quick. I put with blend wardens. I have been trying to use my lucid warden as a driving putter but it is just too flippy. are the opto pures mor stable? thanks

Opto Pures are some of the best stable (neutral) driving putters in the game.

Agreed. Pure is a ssttrraaaiigghhtt shooter. I drive with a lucid/hybrid Judge and it has a reliable fade to it. Judge is much more stable than a beadless putter.

Because they are ****ing amazing. You can throw them as hard as you want with no turn. And hardly any fade.

Are they still in production? I want an opto and discgolfcenter doesn't have any and I'm wondering if they're just out of stock or if they're oop.

yes they are still in production -- it one disc latitude still does right and has done from the start of their company. Spikes are great too actually.

Love the disc but had to give it up.

Can't grip the Opto consistently and the base plastics don't hold up. I'll be all over it again if they made it in Gold line as standard production.

Opto Pure is straight glidey goodness. Or as someone once named it, the mini Buzzz.

GRIP Line was the good days started out slick though and took some time to really beat-in to a great flier which is why they probably didn't appeal as much off the shelf. Was more like a ESP when new and seasoned to a pencil like eraser feeling but didn't just shred away like the current stuff does.
