    Putters

    Hey everyone,

    Ive been looking at getting a new putter and was curious what other people liked. I currently have an aviar 175 DX. I pretty much cant stand the thing. (Im still rather new)

    So I was looking at getting a new one and was curious what the community has to say about putters and why they like the one they like.

    Andy probably meant the Focus, which is indeed, quite stable.

    Go with it...

    Find something you love and then throw it till it stops working for you. I started with Candy Rhinos of all things. I got stronger and got a lot of bounce outs and rolls when I missed so I switched up to Warlocks for the past 2 years. Just pulled the last warlock out of my bag to make room for the Organic Wizard... I now carry the super stiff super grip Organic Wizard, a medium wear Super soft Wizard, and my "wet towel" Super Stupid Soft 4 year old wizard. During the same time I switched from strattle putting with lots of hyzer and float to squared up straight line putting with a one finger pinch and a finger on the rim. Odd.

    Find a friend (or come out to lunchtime and I'll show you about 6 different putters) with a bunch and stick with the one that Feels best.

I agree with the other post in reference to the grip. When i have a driver i do curl all my fingers (except the pinky.......recently i found out it works a little better for me) and throw. For a midrange i curl just my first two fingers under the rim and fan the rest out for better control. Then for putting i put the index finger on the outside of the rim and fan the rest underneath.
    Thanks for the awesome advice!

    Try different putters to find out if you like stiff or soft. Or if you like max weight or a little lighter. Or if you like more overstable compared to more understable. Or if you like to tuck the index finger underneath the rim or have it on the outside.

    It is one the most detailed aspects of the game........its money!

    Finding a comfortable putter does make a world of difference. However, also knowing what type of putter you are and building the proper fundamentals can be even more helpful. Are you a push putter or a spin putter? Are you already pretty solid in the circle and looking to expand that, or are you missing a lot of puts within 25 feet? I would say if youíre not solid inside 25 ft. work there, and only there first. Know how to stand, how to grip the disc, and overall build a consistent putting style that will help you be successful time and time again.

    I started with the Avair and liked it a lot. As I developed my putting style (mostly push putting) I found it to float on me too much. I then switched to the Pro D Challenger which was like putting a brick compared to the Avair. After a year or more of nose down, low putts, someone put a Pro D Banger in my hands. For me it worked and I still throw it today. With the putters before I was finding my thumb placement to be extremely inconsistent. The groove on top of the Banger solved that problem and helped me become more consistent. The funny thing is that Iíve heard the Banger is the last putter a push putter should ever use because it impedes a clean push release. However it works for me.

    Here are two of the best putters in the world talking about putting. Some good information here; two different styles of putting, also info on stance and grip. No one way is the best. Play around, see whatís comfortable and most of all practice, practice, practice.

    ...anyway... sort of thread drift here a little since you were asking about the putters themselves and this is re: your whole grip thing... i know i myself have a different style grip for putting than for driving also it is different for upshots and approaches... i curl all my fingers under for a drive and for shorter shots and putts i have my index finger along the edge... i s'pose i believe it helps with my accuracy...

    ... also, you might just need to practice practice practice...

    good luck!

    i am the exact same way with my drives/putts and i was told a long,long time ago "1998" that the index finger acts like a brake and takes spin off the disc..thus making it easier to control or make go str8...not that i am any1 to be giving out advice...

    Discraft does not make a putter called the Flow.

    I just switched to a Zero Line "Pure" putter by latitude 64 and I really love it...

    Choosing a putter is basically about two things... Stability and feel...

    The more stable a putter is the harder you can throw it at the basket without worrying about it turning out of your intended line... Wizards are probably the king of super stable putter, but JK and KC Aviars are also very stable and the Ringer and Flow by Discraft are pretty stable too...

    But for me the most important thing about a putter is that it feels good in your hand and that your putt does not need to change dramatically for putts that you intend to make no matter the range.
