Default Pure vs. Anode vs. Dart

I'm a RHBH thrower that is looking for a beadless approach disc to throw from 150-50 ft. out in any situation which could also be used for driving as my form and disrance get better. I've narrowed it to 3 candidates that are very close to each other flight characteristics according to inFlight:

Lat Pure
MVP Anode
Innova Dart

I'd like to hear pros and cons from people that throw these molds to help me make my decision.

Your responses are appreciated!

Pures are great for driving off the tee.

Anodes are also great. I'd say it's better for approach shots over the pure though, and great for putting.

The dart is very underrated and a majority of your responses will be Pure/Anode related. Sit on this thread a bit before purchasing anything (don't just go get whatever posters 1 2 and 3 say).

EDIT: lulz

Pure has a nice shallow rim for driving/upshots

I use soft anodes for upshots due to them being a little bit more overstable than my medium anodes and they stick quite nicely.

EDIT: ^^ lolz exactly

I ditched the Dart a while back when I went searching for a go to putter. Narrowed it down to the Pure and Anode myself, with the Anode winning out for me. Love my Anode off the tee and inside the circle, may be the most important disc in my bag now. Almost anything inside of 200 ft the Anode comes out and does its job.

MVP Proton Anode vote here.

I have thrown all three.

They go deepest to most shallow in this order: Anode, Pure, Dart.

They go slowest to fastest in this order: Anode, Pure, Dart.

They go most stable to most understable like this: Anode, Dart, Pure.


The feel between Anodes and Pures is fairly similar save for the depth of the rim and the curved inner rim of the Anode.

They all do a good job of holding whatever line you put them on. They have pretty similar stability, with the Purss being the most neutral in flight, while the Anode and Dart have slightly beefier high speed stability.

All three could fit the role you are asking. I would personally choose the Anode over the Pure for driving, but for approach shots I could go either way. Darts are a lot of fun and I've cranked fresh R Pros and Stars 400' with no turn...they drive quite well. In theory Darts might be a tad fast for short approaches, but my buddy parks short approaches with his all the time...

If theres anything else I can tell you about them let me know. They are all good discs and I would consider how they feel in your hand and the available plastics to help narrow it down.

I'll have to agree w/ Grip. The R-Pro Dart was once a staple in my bag (I even got an ace worth $120 on it).
The Pure and I didn't click.
The Anode is a driving putter staple in my bag.

I know it isn't in yout "top 3" picks, but I would also suggest a Star Wedge.
