Time to change up putters

Hey everyone,

I've been getting really fed up with my soft anodes lately and think it is time to change lines. I'm looking for something stable to understable that has GREAT glide, something hard/stiff and very grippy. I've been looking at a Magnet recently and got to feel one today. I generally stay away from innova but I'm opening doors.

Once again my key ingredient is the glide and stiffness.

Thanks all!

APX/Reef (Discraft/DGA)

Probably the D-Reef has the best glide. The APX in Elite X shrinks a little more, so it's a little faster and doesn't glide quite as much. The D-Reef will probably also be the stiffest plastic. APX/Reef is like if the Aviar and Magnet had a baby.


The Gateway Voodoo is also one of the glidiest putters out there, and I'm sure comes in any variety of stiffness/grip you could want.

I'll ante up the soft magic if you're ok with a non traditional feel in a putter.

What's so non traditional?

Never looked into gateway... Does soft mean it's floppy plastic?

How does the voodoo compare with the magic?

It has a more traditional feel, imo. It's more stable, but glides better. It has a micro-bead, where the Magic is beadless.

Magic or a Beat Up Wizard if you like a bead!

Soft is actually the hardest available Gateway blend., behind Super Soft, Super Stupid Soft, Really Freaking Flexible.
