i like to drive with putters a lot, i have used a challengers and wizards before but there not doing what i want any more. ive tried rynos and pigs and there too overstable and was wondering if you all had any suggestions?
ok i have now chose to throw a jk pro aviar!!!!! so thank you all very much for the input. and keep them coming im open for new ideas. thank you
I'll agree with everyone above who said that learning to drive w/ a putter will improve your scores...for me, its much easier to control the end of the flight with a putter than with a midrange, especially when you're throwing shorter than 250-300' (depending on how far you can drive with one). Being able to drive a putter well also helps a lot when trying approach a basket on a tricky or sloped green, or on approach shots where you don't want any skip or play after your disc hits the ground.
My vote goes for the Wizard...those things are designed to handle a good amount of power. I putted/drove with a KC Aviar for about 3 years solid until I tested the Wizard a few months ago...in my opinion, it's much better for higher-power throws.
when you say challengers aren't doing what ya want....do you mean they are too flippy. I have found that ESP banger gts are money for putter-drivers.... very durable, can handle a good amount of snap, and feel really good in the hand! IMO they are more stable than a challenger but not as stable as a Pig or rhyno...
Hey. I too drive with my putters. Im good up to about 325-350. Playing in Rochester,NY and having the benefit of 2 Hall of Famers to learn from since 82 they taught me alot about playing with putters and midranges. my bag has the following:
Big bead Innova Aviar is a great straight flyer up to 250 feet. It's slow and will go where you point it and will drop flat with no skip. You can throw them at full speed without worrying about them turning over much. Great approach disc, or driver for ace runs and gimmie placements next to the pin. Used them for 20 years!!!!!!!!!!!
KC PRO Aviars or Aviar x's is a stable but not too stable disc i love to throw. i throw my putters on drives A LOT. probably half of my aces are with putters. such a predictable line. i hear that KC PRO aviars never budge from the day you get them to the day you lose them. tried a pig, hated it. i throw soft challengers at the moment but my preferred putter is the aviar x and the pro-d challenger. those pro-d's are the sniper of putting in my opinion.
