Push/Pitch putter recommendations?

I'm trying to learn how to pitch/push putt and right now I only have a vibram ridge (medium) and an aviar p&a.

I have been told stiffer putters are better. I was thinking maybe the mcpro aviar is stiff enough but I haven't touched one yet. I also was thinking of getting on the wizard bandwagon but their molds and plastics are very confusing for me. I am not sure what to get and I've never felt any of them before.

Does anyone have recommendations on these two or perhaps another disc I should consider? I want to get at least 2 identical discs for practice but if I can find a good deal somewhere, I may get more.

I see there is standard, organic, eraser, and proto(chalky). What's the difference and which one should I be looking at?

The classic options are Aviars and Wizards. MC Pro and KC Pro Aviars are good for push putting, and Wizards are good for push putting in Soft and most blends of Super Soft plastic. If you can, just go to a store and buy whichever one feels better. There are hundreds of discs you can use, but the Aviar and Wizard are both tried and true push putting molds.

There are lots of threads on here about Gateway's plastic blends. They should be pretty easy to search for.

Any putter will work fine. It's all in technique and preference on disc feel.

You might as well just ask for everybody's favorite putter because that's all that people will list.

I think my chalky is perfect, but SS and ER is also good. If it's a wizard, it's fine.

Didn't edit in time. Should have given more info.

SS is fairly slick and fairly non-flexible. Chalky is somewhat slick and somewhat non-flexible. Eraser is somewhat grippy and somewhat flexible. RFF is fairly grippy and fairly flexible.


I've only felt 1 organic, but I did not like it. I would never submit it to a flex test, because I'm pretty sure it wouldn't survive it. Very slick, not at all flexible, and wears quicly.

G9i is another favorite. I have not had the pleasure of feeling one up.

When you say the SS is fairly slick and fairly non-flexible, is it more or less slick/flexible than an aviar p&a?
