Divergent Nunu Manufacturer Notes
Here is how Divergent Discs describes their Nuno putter:
The Nuno is an excellent, professional level putter with a semi deep rim and no bead. This slow speed putter has a very neutral flight and is an excellent choice for beginners and advanced players alike.

Nuno Initial Reactions
I am surprised I have not seen more comparisons to Gateways Wizard. Divergent Discs’ Nuno putter has a rounded nose and slightly domey flight plate that feels an awful lot like a Wizard but with no bead. The flight is even similar, but perhaps with more glide an a touch less fade.
The MaxGrip plastic feels great in the hand and indeed offers superior grip. The plastic is a bit springy though, which offers great snap but can lead to a rough landing.

Nuno Putting Notes
The Nuno is a slightly overstable putter with high glide. The high glide should appeal to disc golfers from begginer to advanced. At low speed, the Nuno shows no turn and is quite consistent with a reliable fade.
Given the high glide, the Nuno makes a great long-distance putter. It will handle any putting style well and can be worked with any putting line. You will obviously need to take caution with wind picking it up, but it is more consistent in the wind than most high glide putters.
The deep profile may not feel comfortable in smaller hands, but the grippy plastic helps.
Divergent Nuno Flight Notes
Although advertised as a true putting putter with professional accuracy, the Nuno makes a great approach and driving putter as well. The high glide and slight overstability allow it to withstand a good deal of torque and carry a long distance. As said above, the Nuno is more consistent than most discs with similar high glide. The challenge with the Nuno is controlling it in cross winds becuase the high glide and deep profile allow the wind to carry it.
The Nuno does not flip easily and has a striaght flight until broken in when it begins to display a gentle turn. Put on a high anhyzer line, the Nuno will glide for days and very gradually being pulling out into a soft landing. This is one of my favorite shots with Gateway’s Wizard, and the Nuno pulls it off stunningly.
Use caution when landing the Nuno on hard ground, especially with elevation. The plastice is springy and the nose is rounded so it tends to roll away.
