Gateway putters the best?

I use a Discraft Putt'r X as my main putter and it's really all i've ever used, but when i did some research on potentially switching putters, all i've heard is people raving about Gateway putters. Why are they the best? What seperates them? I love what i have, i'm just curious what the difference is.

Gateway putters are thicker at the outer edge of the disc giving them a more gyroscopic effect than conventional putters.

I'd like to give one of these a try. Any suggestions on what putter I should pick up first?

A lot of people just seem to have success with them and like them. I tried them and they felt nice and were comfy and I was actually successfully putting with them for a little while, but I stopped using them shortly after because they just don't seem to have as much glide as my Ions do.

A wizard is a long way from a putt'r X.... The feel/grip of a putter is very important to your success with it.
That being said, if you aren't too terribly attached to the way your putt'r X fits in your hand then give the wizard a shot. Gateway usually does sweet package deals on multiples if you buy direct and it really helps to have a stack to practice with. I have at least 20 or so scattered around my yard on any given day and rarely pay more than 5-8 bucks a piece for them.

Leave that out there eventually they will nibble.
