The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

So, this dude from my club, clayton, said I need a heavier putter.

Apparently, if I throw 160-170g discs, a 150 putter won't work for me :(

And on that note.

If anyone has seen my putting style, what kind of putter should I get next?

yeah, but that tells us what you're doing wrong. Either you're throwing the disc with too much snap, causing it to turn over, or you're releasing on an anhyzer angle. Get some other club members to have a look at your putts, they should be able to identify the problem pretty quickly.
never heard that, but Chas always used to tell me "don't blame the disc". i like the way you put it too.

It is the bow, not the arrow.

Do the Mark Ellis Confidence Putting Clinic. Information can be found here on this site.

New putters are not needed, just dedication.
haha i love putting because its the holy grail of disc. if you got it, you're good, when you don't, its bad. PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE. when i taught myself to putt, i tried different things until i pieced together what i call my short game. don't overthink it, but you have to concentrate... HAHAA i love to putt. i have 5 putters in my bag, not a one the same either different by weight or model. you can see it on my page. anyways.. PRACTICE

I kinda have the same problem, I'm not in love with the feel of either of the putters I have (rattler and D challenger). I like the challenger better, I'm thinking about getting an FLX one?

the FLX are great as putter drivers......but prefer regular d or soft(if you like)......the FLX challenger seems to have more spitouts.....but that could just be me.

I'll have to try to work on my putts when its less windy.

I can get a real feel for what it wrong. If its me, then I'll fix it

If its my putter, I'll see..

I was thinking either get a kc aviar, those look nice. Or a discraft magnet? Or an omega super soft. Or a gateway thing. I think the DGA has junk discs, so I wouldn't ever consider a disc from them.

Any other good putters I haven't mentioned?

Kyle......I'll save you from a tongue lashing but your above statement requires clarification....How many DGA discs have you thrown???? did you know discraft makes them for DGA therefore you are saying discraft sucks.....In addition I think DGA makes tons on great products......I think that the Rogue is one of the best turnover distance drivers out there.....so if you have some insight to provide why you don't like DGA products please feel free to expand.....but without a knowledge to back your statement, it is like saying "ice cream sucks" without ever tasting it.....get it?????
OK to experiment in non tournament situations !!!!
Try a KC Pro 12x or KC Pro 10x for Stiffer Rim Putter. 170-172 or 174-175.

For Softer Feel , JK around 170-172 or 174-175.
So, How much different from a normal aviars are the kc ones?

And how do they stand up against trees. After most drives, I use a putter for my next shot. Whether it be 10 feet or 50 feet.
