I've been throwing a few Putters..of course I've only been playing for less than a year. But I've tried Magnets and Wizards which I don't mind too much. My Aviars have been good to me but I have noticed that I am Loving my Challengers. I currently putt with a Crystal Challenger. Its still pretty new to my bag but I'm loving the Hell out of it. Plus its a wonderful wind putter! It is extra stable so I'm able to putt so Umph on it with my jump putts so I know it wont turn over too much. I use it for anything inside of 100ft.
Aviar P&A. I hear everyone saying that they like stable putters?? That doesn't make sense to me. I bet when a stable putter misses it misses left. I like the beat in Aviar P&A becasue it is not stable. I carry several Aviars though. Putt inside the circle in lite wind with a beat in P&A and with heavier wind I use a new P&A. I have tried them all and the beat in Aviar is the the bees knees!
My favorite is the Wizard, mainly the Super Soft. I like them because they stick in the chains well and they are very stable
I recently switched to a Buzzz Esp 176.
A putter is ALWAYS a personal preference disc, the majority of players that try an Aviar will like it, but its certainly not for everyone. No one should say that any one putter is perfect, it may be for you, but its not going to be for everyone else.

I prefer a Champion Aviar P&A, but since its discontinued and the ones on EBay are running $25 it looks like I will have to switch soon. It has good grip in my hands and goes super straight with my style of putting. I will most likely be switching to a softer putter like a JK Aviar or a Wizard.
Discgolfcenter.com has Aviar Champ x-outs for 10.99 and regular Champs for 15.99.
I think they have free shipping on $12.00+ orders
Thank you :)
After a few others I started to use the soft magnet and I will never go back to anything else.
started with an Aviar. for some reason,years later.. I got into a ching JUJU and liked it. but then discovered the straddle putt, and now use a nice beat up challenger which has boosted my confidence.

I think there is a big mental issue with discs. asside from minor differences and the obvious issues of overstability/understability from different ranges... putting is very mental to me.

therefore a disc I "feel" will work better..seems to work better.
Magnet is my choice. I started with Aviar P&A but it was too rigid for me, then tried Soft Magnet which then again was too floppy. I changed in to regular Magnet and that was just perfect. I have since tried almost every putter in the market but nothing suits me better than a Magnet. I must say though that in my opinion the putter makes about 20 per cent of the putting. The rest comes from between your ears.
Soft Magnet in the house.

only downside is i go through one every couple of months or so, they get beat and flip
Beat Soft Magnet for anhyzer approach shots
