I use the original soft magnets at 174g. It does the same thing everytime. It I miss, it isnt the putter.
Pro D Challengers, I use them for all putts inside of 60ft. Then I go to my old X APX for anything outside of the challenger's range but still in putting range. The challengers are very predictable and are a nice stable putter that beats in nicely over time. My X APX just floats straight as an arrow with little effort for those longer putts. Both are great discs that have been permanently in my bag for over a year and have treated me well.
i like ss omega best. easy to handle and if it hits in the chains it`s in for sure
I'm a big fan of the soft Banger GT, very grippy and comfortable in the hand, which are the two main things I look for in a putter.
the best chain grabber is the dga blowfly. If you compare the outside rim of the blowfly to other putters you can easily tell that it would grip the metal more. I have a hard time controlling it though as you really need to get used to it's feel. Of course it all depends on your own putting style with the angle of release and all that. Guys that like a stiffer putter would really hate the blowfly. I am not saying it is the best putter out there i am just saying that it grabs the chains the best. I have compared the blowfly to all of the other putters listed in this thread and more.
Kittyhawk Putter (soft like an eraser)

Beadless Aviar

"Hands On" Aviar
I will never put with anything but the "Discraft soft Magnet"

Afterall, it is the chain slammin' device.

Why? Because it doesn't miss within 30ft.
i have (5) 172g jk aviars and (1) 172g kc aviar. love them
esp banger. its so solid
Banger GT, my new favourite putter. I have one in 175, and one in 167. Why? Distance and wind. Light for distance, and heavy for the winds. I love it.
My favorite putter isnt designed to be a putter at all. I recently fond a disc that had nothing on the top of the disc except for "trueline". I didnt know what it was, it looked like a mid-ranger, and at the time me and my putter were not getting along, so I started using it for short approaches and putts, it has singlehandedly reduced my score by 3-4 shots per round. I looked on the back of the disc for patent/manufacture info, after a quick web search, it turns out to be made by wham-o corp, the holder of the original patent for old fashioned Frisbees; apparently they want to break into the folf market. Anyhow, this disc works so well I bought the entire line of wham-o folf disc (4-5 disc), and I am waiting on them in the mail. I have used aviars, rocs, and magnets as putters, and in my opinion, none of them are worth the extra weight or lost space in my bag. Maybe I am being to harsh, the roc is useful for shorter downhill drives, and the soft, rubbery, grippy magnet is useful if you (like i used to) use the overhand putting style. I still think the aviar is a POS though.
