Default Ugh, Throwing Putters!

Decided, I want to go back to beaded putters, as I like the feel much better than a non-beaded ones. Going to break back out my kcpros from storage for putting

But with that being said I’m more into throwing putters than ever before. I want something that feels like a kcpro but is similar to the quiver of throwing putters I have now.

Currently throwing 3....
1) A newish pretty overstable Luster P2
2)A neutral beat S-line P2 that has a slight fade, but no turn and,
3) An understable beat d-line P2 that doesn’t fade back when thrown flat.

I never found that kcpros to be overstable enough for my overstable putter slot, but might work for the other 2.
I’d be up for multiple plastics or beating one plastic in or having 2 kcpros and something that feels the same but more overstable (either by mold or plastic).

Thoughts? Comments? Concerns?

Never thrown an overstable ion, but they are great throwers.

Obvious answer is wizards. Finding a good OS one isnt the easiest (though Evo and Diamonds are pretty OS, they don't fly quite right. Need a cleaner throw than even a regular wizard.

Puffy Wizard in your desired firmness for OS
Nikko Wizard for straight
broken in wizard for flippy. do it.

if you want really OS and like the wizard feel you can always toss a scale too.

I tried to go headed, couldn’t do it. Judge, Wiz, BB Aviar, Challenger, Touch all eventually failed.

I guess the Harp sort of has a bead, but then again, it’s not really a putter.

Good luck in your endeavors, may you not be hampered by square fingers.

Breaker is beaded and OS, but a good deal thinner than KC Aviars

Do you like the Thumbtrac? A DX Rhyno seems like it'd be worth a shot since it uses the KC's lower wing.

Or a Jawbreaker Ringer GT, basically the same than a Rhyno but lower profile. It's the shallowest feel of all the putters I tried, only the Colt XT Prototype is close in that category and they fly a lot better than the production run too.

The Luster P2 is a great disc. I have a couple in that beautiful watermelon color. They're a bit domey, and they always seemed to putt a little higher into the basket than other discs. I had to put them away last winter, because the Luster plastic is so slick and hard in cold weather. They're a bit too OS for me off the tee: I throw a K1 Reko for that -and I've since started putting with nice flat-topped, shallow K3 Rekos.

I don't think you'll get the overstability of the Luster P2 in a plastic like KC Pro. You could try a Rhyno, but it won't have the same glide. D-line P3x would start out fairly stable, but lose it quickly. I'd recommend going with a C-line or S-line P3x, then have a newer KC and older KC to cycle in the neutral/US slots.

Obviously. Like, get a Wizard already.

If you don't try the Wizard/Scale combo, you're not really trying.
