How many more putters do you need? The answer I tell my wife every time she asks this is always the same. "Just one more"

First off, what you are going through is totally normal. I think most everyone has gone through the same process. I haven't counted recently, but I know that I have over 40 putters, and not many exact duplicates. For me it's mainly about feel. I like a firm, hard plastic putter, and not a huge amount of grip. The one that I bag for in the circle putting most of the time is my Zero Hard Dagger, but I have two or three other molds that I can switch in very easily. I agree with others in this thread that one of the main things you can do is to have your own basket, and if you live in an area like I do, Iowa, having a basket indoors where you can use it year round is a huge plus.

Putting practice at times can become so boring and routine that I just need to use different discs to shake things up a bit.

The frustrating part of my previous post is seeing if fade left in front of the chains. I usually dont miss short in my range 20ft or so. At 30 ft is where I feel real uncomfortable and doubt Ill make it. Ive heard putting is mental but its hard to overcome seeing yourself attempt a historically low percentage putt.
My putting sucked until I bought 3 similar discs - 2 Wardens and an Aviar. As I was practicing, I started making putts I previously had no business making. I stopped practicing and I don't make those anymore.

If I'm smart...which doesn't always happen...I anny my disc a little to counter the left fade.

But you can give Paul o Ricky any putter on the market and they will do just fine. . Its Paul and Ricky that are THAT good, not their putters
I agree with you

Try any of the putting games that have you move in incremental distances. Keep a record of how you do...this is important for confidence and improvement, as you will have recorded proof that you can hit X percent of putts from Y distance. Don't try to jump from 20 feet to 30 feet. Increasing your comfort zone happens one foot at a time. You may find yourself making 90%+ from 20 feet, then all you have to do is start making 90%+ from 21 feet. It can be easier mentally to think that it is only one more foot outside your 90%+ area, so there shouldn't be too much difference. Eventually you will feel more comfortable from further out as you have built a base of confidence one foot at a time.

Again, it will come as the reps accumulate.

As many have said, the putter is one of the least important parts of putting. Once you develop good form, most putters will fly about the same inside the circle. But it is good to have several copies of the same putter for practice.

I tried quite a few putters before settling on one. I eventually sent a big box full of rejected putters to someone who was helping to introduce youngsters to this fine (but often frustrating) game.

Good luck!

And here I felt bad for buying 1 Aviar and 1 Banger-GT before settling on a stack of Wizards. I couldn't even think of 15 different (putting) putters I'd want to try, because I want my putter to be available in bulk for cheap. I'm curious about the Fierce and the Luna, but I'm not buying multiples at those prices.

The correct answer seems to be N + 1


Or maybe not.

Pick one you can see yourself throwing, and sell the rest. Invest the sales money in helping to buy more of the same putter that you picked.

I had to do that this winter. Sold all of my other putters (challengers, classic aviars, P2s) and forcing me to commit to throwing Steadys.
