Suggested Windy Putter

I tossed my 174g Soft Magnet this weekend in moderate (10-15MPH) winds. Some higher gusts as well. I had a heck of a time controlling it. What is the putter of choice for windy conditions?

I have a few other putters to choose from too:

Discraft Pro D Focus 166g
Discraft Pro D Ringer 174g
Discraft Pro D Soft Magnet 174g
Innova DX Aviar 169g
Innova R-Pro Dart 172g

Suggestions Please?

soft ion.

also i aim low in a headwind (to counter the headwind lift) and high with a tailwind when putting. i think thats pretty standard.
