I have a probolem with putting with my putter's. I have an omega and it seems like the bead on the edge of my disc is just way to big.(first prob) I will use the my omega for a few full rounds and still lil to no improvment.(second prob) I switched up to a #2 driver and it flys straight for and goes into the basket 65% of the time,putt range only 23ft and closer tho.Any thing past that I miss. I guess my ? is should i keep using the disc that give me a better % now or should I just get a diffrent Putter and just deal with the fact of using a putter. Any Advise will help.
Your putter should be the best disc in your bag so dont be afraid of spending a little money on them. If you like the gateway plastic try a magic, no bead a little more glige than a wizard and stable but not over stable. It sounds like super soft would be a good start for the plastic. Weight, that is what feels right to you but if you are having trubble from out side of 27ft maybe on the lighter side 170g to 172g.
I putt with 168 Magics. I love that they're lighter as they have even more glide and it is easier to putt at longer distances. This way you can keep the same stroke w/o sacrificing your form to putt longer.
I used to putt with max weight discs like the Warlock, Aviar BB, and Voodoo. I found that I like straighter putters as it lends itself to my style of putting. I do switch to heavier and/or more stable putters when the wind calls for it though.
