The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

i recently shot my first even par ever, lovingly at clark in hiawatha ( it's my fave ), cannot describe how cool that was... but i found myself looking at my bag and realizing that i still putt often with a hydra... when there's no wind it's a-ok, but i need to find a consistent putter that i can use with confidence no matter what the sitch... i've tried the xd, dart, soft magnet, pig, a 175 beadless champion aviar and am currently using a kc pro aviar, which i like but is pretty understable for me and i'd rather have a reliable hyzer for putting than wonder if it's gonna go straight... my friends are trying to sell me on a jk-pro aviar, and i gotta admit that i'm sold for now, but curious if there's anything else out there that can give me the putter i'm looking for... suggestions???

I like my dx rhino
i second this, go with the evolution plastic. it is my go to hyzer putter, it is small and easy to grip and let rip. carry a champ avair for the long straight ones and a classic roc for the anny's.

wizards are good. i'm using challengers right now.
I like Wizards for my shots under 300 ft. its a great driving putter and just flys straight as can be.
for putting I would say the best putters out there is a beadless Aviar or a Discraft Reef. Reefs putt very straight and feel great in your hand.
r-pro avair is pretty cool and controllable. And I dont like putters. I normally 97% putt with a flx XL Driver. wierd but it works
Try Discraft, too. I went from hardcore aviar lover to hardcore challenger lover overnight. I shoot pro-d challngers. An even more stable putter from Discraft is the banger GT. I have several friends that nail sick long putts all day and swear by them. Hope this helps.
The Wizard used to be my fav & is very good in the wind.
I recently switched to an Omega Supersoft, which was actually the first kind of putter I ever used (given to me by Ron Converse 8 years ago). Ron has really helped me with my putting skills over the years & I've come to the conclusion that I could be comfortable putting with anything when I'm doing it right. Just throw it in the basket; easy right? I quit relying on hyzer putts a couple years ago.
The putter doesn't matter - it's how you throw it. The advantage of a straight flying putter is less consideration of "when it will break left", but you can also make an overstable putter go straight. For my putting game, all that matters is practice. If I don't practice, I can't putt with any disc. :-)
Exactly! Practice, practice, practice.
a standard old school DX Aviar P&A. doesnt get any better then
this old standby. its the only putter i throw when i have to really
make that putt.
Challenger, Banger GT, Wizard, Warlock, Rhyno
Lots of Discs to choose from. You may want to experiment with a few to see what you like best.
