I never tried a Putt'r or a Magnet. I thought I really liked the roach in jawbreaker for putting even though I wasn't very consistent with it. I liked the feel of it in hand better than the aviar but that was my only reasoning because I was (am still) not a good putter so I can't actually blame a disc for my game. But then I played with a rattler and instantly added a few feet to my consistent putting radius. Call me crazy, but I just ordered three more of these unpopular badboys. I love this disc!

Putt'r like the Wasp is made in the wrong plastic, many will agree that the disc looses its glide when it dose the first small part of break in due to the Soft X Discraft has to use for all of its putters. Magnet has 3 verieties in production and a Proline Titanic, similar disc from same factory as well as D Titanic the baseline for DGA and Discraft. The Legacy Clutch has 4 or 5 varieties, one being like the stiff Magnets made before 2006.

I would hae liked a Rattler if the disc was not so deep. The Polecat is close but it had too sharp a edge where top and rim meet. Birdie had the Rattler deep disc problem as well as the thumbtrack I felt was odd on a Lid.

I like the idea. If you find something that works for you, stick with it. I usually have a birdie or Polecat in my bag. I use them for longer putts, or in a situation when i want to float one close (a half run).
I have a feeling if you get comfortable putting with a rattler, after some time you will gain confidence with other molds too.

Rattlers are a fun putter to watch fly. If that's what works for you, stick with it for a little while!

Have putted hard enough to have disc warp, my Lighting Rubber Putter was the old disc without the DuPont plastic as I call it.

Yes but the Rubber Putter is still technically a plastic, due to the material used in the disc.
