P2, aviar, voodoo depending on what feels right that day. But, you have to decide what feels good to you.

In my quest for the perfect putter, I've come to the conclusion that my comfort with a putter encompasses these aspects: the way it feels in my hand, how it feels leaving my hand, how it flies to the pin, and how it grabs chains. Don't settle on a putter before you hold and try a couple. I suggest first trying stable model putters in multiple depths: low profile (1.2-1.3cm), medium (1.4-1.5cm), and deep (1.6-1.8cm) to compare the feel in your hand without worrying about overstable/understable. Then maybe try an overstable and an understable putter. Then find the right plastic for grabbing the chains or driving, not both with the same disc

For a list of putter models and their flight characteristics (switch disc type):

For putter dimensions:

EDIT: A good starting point might be something like a Suspect/Ringer (1.2cm), Pure (1.4cm), and Wizard (1.8cm). Just a thought.

I'm definately agree with apparitions conclusions. The way a disc feels in hand and how it works for a certain person is the most important in my eye. Alot of people like the wizard, but to me it doesn't feel right and fly the way I like. Try different putters with different stability ratings, hardness, etc.

My perfect putter as of now is the classic soft judge. I prefer a softer putter, and I like how it has just the right amount of glide. Try as many as you can. Just because it works for <insert pro here> doesnt mean its gonna work for you.
