I use 3 different putters from time to time to tee off with. Voodoo for a straight line, Wizard for a line with some fade at the end, and I just figured out how to grip my Blowfly and it makes a great putter for when I need a shot to bend right.

It took me a lot of field practice to find a comfortable grip to drive with but since getting that sorted out I tee off with a putter on most every hole that is less than 200'

don't know if it's the best, but I really like driving within 200' with a Voodoo. it holds annie, slight hyzer or goes straight

if you want a more overstable disc try a Zone. This is one of the best disc in my bag. Incredibly controllable. Allows for quite a bit of power and spin to be put on it without flipping

My Aero will stump you all. It can hold a straight line, do a great annie, and with a little hyzer go left.

It was originally a driver when it was first introduced but with the inception of the wide rim it took a back seat. I have both DX and Champion but prefer the Champion (after its broke in).

It was even the world distance record holder in 1984 at 550.79'. It was thrown by Frank Aguilera.

Check out the Latitude 64 putters. Flat-tops, nice profile...kind of like an XD...which is another good choice for a putt-drive.

Voodoo is nice too.

And I'll third the Aero being a very flexible driving putter. And It can get some great distance on it (although it will hardly seem like it's moving sometimes. But I'd stick with the aviar you have (a kc), or get a challenger, or a wizard (gateway). They are all driver that you can put a lot on and they won't turn much at all. You can throw each of them with hyzer, anhyzer, or dead flat and they will hold their line pretty well. They Aero is better at getting the distance, but the Aviar is something that is a little better to putt with (in my experience and opinion).

If you are a power player, the Wizard is the best driving putter IMO. It is overstable enough that it will not turn, so the big arms can just crush long straight drives with it. The big bead Aviar is a little more forgiving of my nose-up sins, so I throw it off the tee a lot. The Voodoo is very long, probably the longest putter I've thrown, but I've had some problems with it fighting the wind. If you play mostly open holes and can get some height on your throws, the Magnet bombs. It's a little trickier for me on lower lines, and the Wizard and Aviar are great on lower lines. The Omega is also a good driving putter. I used to have some light Omega's that I could put some hyzer on that flipped up and flew long. I can't remember why I stopped throwing them. The Challenger and Warlock are also good putters off the tee. I just don't have as many throws with them to have a definite opinion.

They all have their merits, hard to say which one is the best.
