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?
