A disc that's really flexible might not bounce back or cut through as much. And something lighter is going to require less chains to arrest its momentum. So if you really want to putt with a 150 class super flexible putter, it MIGHT stick in the basket on bad putts more often. But no one wants to do that. So pick a putter that gives you a good putting release and worry about hitting your target rather than worrying about poor putts staying in.
Another reason to have a heavier putter is it will cut through the chains better if you putt better. I have seen this with a player who used to use 135-140 gram DX Polecats before finding the max weight soft X Putt'r and using them only after the disc got slightly broken in with the mini concave the disc then gets as the glide was gone so she could spin putt the disc right to the basket. Anyhow she would have the 140 and lower gram DX Polecats would bounce off chains of the Mach III with old basket catcher and really be affected by any wind over 12 mph and that happens a lot in norther plains states and Minnesota.
