Default Best "Comet-y" putter?

I'm looking for an understable putter for two reasons: 1) I love throwing forehand turnover approaches with a Comet, but lately I've been overthrowing them and wonder if there's a lower speed disc for the shot. 2) For form work, I imagine a putter like this would be nice to have around. Right now I have some Aviars, Challengers, and XT Whale. The former two are obviously more on the stable side, and I simply haven't clicked with the Whale for putting or throwing.

Sadly, no. Early on, I thought all putters were for putting. I never liked the feel.

Prodigy PA4 might work. They seemed pretty understable out of the box.
Maybe a Magic.

Personally, I really like a Polecat for some of that stuff.

Polecat.

Might not be comfy to putt with though. It'll do everything else.

PA4. I find them to be a touch more stable than Comets when thrown hard off the tee but they are both very neutral flyers. Putting with the PA4 (at low speeds) is fine in the wind.

I'd go with the Magic. I'll catch flak for this, but IMO, Magnets feel horrible in the hand.

For something a little more stable, that feels great with the FH grip, I'd try the Axiom Proxy. It's not quite as understable as you're looking for, but is a heck of a driving/approach putter. Just throwing the option out there for you.

Second. When the APX came out, we called it the Comet of putters. Throw it right and it glides out straight and true. Throw it wrong and regret all your life decisions as you watch it careen off toward disaster.
