Need a putter that doesn't roll
 
I'm a newb and the courses here are wooded. I need a putter that will lay down and not roll. Any suggestions? My fav putters are The Shield, Birdie, and Warden. I hear the soft/super soft/ etc are good but they don't hold up to damage well. Problem is i'm a tree killer ..if there is a tree on the hole i can find it and hit it. I like Dynamic Discs but i'll throw anything. Thanks for the help.

DGA Gumbputt or Blowfly...where they hit is where they stay.

There are a number of other threads that cover this, but the bottom line is that if you don't like the really soft discs (which 'stick' better), then you're going to have the potential for rolling. I like DD putters, also, but I really do not like soft putters. Ergo, I throw my Classic Marshal and take my medicine if it rolls. If I have a DX Polecat in the bag instead of my Champion Polecat, I'll use it.

In my experience even the soft plastics catch edge and roll. I had putts roll down into a deep pit when I started so I switched putters to a soft Vibram, needless to say I still had rollaways. Softer discs stick closer to where they land, but due to the nature of spinning discs they will still roll if you throw wrong.

Throw what putter feels good in your hand, regardless of firmness. Learning angles is the most important part of not getting throws to turn to rollers, you want the angle of the flight to match the landing zone to minimize chance of roll.

If you want a putter to stick and you already like the Warden and Shield, then pick one up in Classic Soft/BT Soft. I putt Crowns in the circle and typically use BT Medium plastic; if I I'm playing a course with some stupid fast greens, then I'll put a BT Soft Crown in the bag too. And while the plastic does get gouges fairy easily and show some wear, it really doesn't seem to change flight characteristics nearly as quickly as you'd think. Especially if you're just using it to putt and not to drive with.

Alternatively, if you really want a putter that is soft with maximum durability then you're best bet is to check out a putter in Neutron Soft plastic from MVP/Axiom. I have abused my Neutron Soft Envy and yet it still looks and throws like new. I typically use it for C2 putts, stable upshots, and a little bit of driving duties. It also gets C1 putting duty on days when my Crown is misbehaving and in timeout.

i get ya thebmeistor i guess i'm still at that stage i'm hoping there are magic discs that putters won't roll and a driver will go 200 feet farther than any other driver i've tried to throw

You've already got a Birdie, I'd try and get it to approach nice and flat. Lids make great approach discs b/c they're easy to land flat and so blunt that they don't skip and roll much. Polecat is a bit easier to do this b/c it doesn't fade as much but the Birdie should work.

The other advice of soft putters and learning angles is good. I use a soft Pure for these type of shots since I carry one anyway.

One other suggestion I'd add is the Nova. That sits much better than most and I like to throw it for approaches on hilly hardpan courses.
