i would recommend a more neutral putter (good ole beadless aviar or something similar) around 171-172. i know that you live in Texas and have to deal with more wind than most folks do, so a putter like a kc aviar definitely has its place. but until your putting is consistent and confident i would try something a little more forgiving.
I actually switched from classic aviars to the kc pros a couple of weeks ago on the advice of a pro from whom I purchased lessons. I have to agree that the more overstable putter makes for a much better hyzer skip approach disc. For putting at 10-15 feet, I can't see much difference, and I can't putt well enough outside that range to have any opinion about it as far as for putting further out.
