Get a soft IMO. The mediums are weird to drive with, that rounded inner shoulder combined with the slickness on medium just messes everything up. Plus it's nice to be able to dig your thumb in on putts for a little extra pop and spin if you want. Helps with the grip. Definitely a Jack of all trades.

I carry two discs that they companies that make them call putters.

The real putter is the Touch, I bag 3 one CT Proto that is my main chain hitting disc in the circle, and two liquids one for driving and approaches and the other for when i need to putt with more grip than the CT Proto offers.

I like the Touch becuase it has a big bead, and a flat top which make or very comfortable in my hand. It also has very little turn and the fade is not dramatic. So it's predictable and goes where you point it.

The other is a Harp but I use it more like a mid since it's fairly OS and fast.

Big Bead Aviar. Lots of plastic options and breaks in nicely.

Followed closely by Small Bead Aviars.

Go for an Anode. Pastic (proton/neutron/eclipse) doesn't matter at all. Soft and medium is pretty significant...I prefer medium as soft is very flexible, but it doesn't flop due to the rim. It's all personal.

The Anode is very different from those other mids you have with more HSS, and just a different type of flight as it is a putter. I wouldn't necessarily replace a Buzzz SS or Mako with the Anode, but you'll realize how far you can throw the Anode eventually and then use those discs for different shots than approaches, perhaps. Either way, if you like how the Anode feels go for it and you won't regret it.

rff wizard for putting: great grip/feel and is more apt to sit rather than bounce and roll away on a miss.

soft focus for drives and approaches

Classic Roc for drives. DX Big bead aviar for up shots 75-150ft out. KC Pro Aviars for jump and circle putts. My jump putter is 171 and my circle putter is max weight, mostly psychological I'm sure but I feel the slight difference in weight gives me a bit more cofidence in my range. Although typically anything outside of 75ft is a throw not a putt for me any way.

If you like lower profile discs, the new Atom that is being released on the 23rd of this month is a lot like the Anode, but has a better feel in the hand. And it comes is delicious Electron plastic, which is MVP's new baseline blend.

Challenger for straight to overstable or Magnet for less overstable shots. They both are quite slow, I love their plastic, and the feel in hand is perfect.
