cloning a pfu amplified fragment in T vector

I always used Taq for TA cloning after Pfu amplification without prior 
purification. It always worked fine. I would give it a shot and if you 
should have problems you can try what they say in the manual. Maybe they 
are theoretically right, but the Pfu is somewhat less active after all 
the cycles of the PCR reaction and so its presence does not matter anymore?

Kind regards
