Here's the part of the video I'm talking about:

Edit: Title should say "Thick"

Both of these guys used to putt with KC Aviars.

Yeah, based on less fade for upshots and using the same disc for putting, I'd agree, and add a Magic to the list.

I do think the McPro Aviar is up your alley since it's really stiff, doesn't feel like slick star/champ style plastic, but will likely have decent longevity compared to softer DX/baseline blends as you'd be using it for approaches as well.

Getting putts and shorter approaches to not fade is a lot of technique too. I feel like any normal shaped putter within 35-40' for me flies the exact same. I definitely understand wanting stiffer plastic for more push/spush putts that you really pop out of the hand.

James Conrad is a spin putter, hence the softer putter.

Usually push putters prefer a firm putter where as a spin putter will use something a little softer.

He asked for something with less fade than a magnet.

To the OP, Gateway Soft is a firm blend. Their medium got 'banned'.
Eraser blend may be a little firmer than Soft though.

My bad! Soft Magic in that case.

Steve Brinster uses a push putt, and he has been using a dx classic aviar for years.

Side note: the "Soft" and "Supersoft" plastics are anything but. They're stiff, darn stiff....
