Default Fckunig Ptteurs

Still cant settle on a putter. However I think I would like to go with something a little less stable than what Ive tried. P2, kc aviar, judge...

My style is a spush putt. Id say almost 50/50, similar to Conrad.

Looking for a putter that I can putt straight at the basket as Ive been fading out early and hit the cage all too often. Id love a bead and prefer it to be hardish and tackyish. What suggestions youve got?

Thanks all!!

Beaded and less stable than a judge? Don’t know, maybe p1x? I’ve switched between kc’s and wizards but what really helped was putting more snap on the spush. I reckon my put is more like Dickerson’s right now.

No bead, but the classic aviars is really straight, v little fade. I also had problems with hitting low and fading out early, not with the classic aviars tho. Comes in extra firm dx

Testing putters is a sport in it self... fun sport

Bead. . Gateway Voodoo or RPM Ruru

Straight putters, but no bead. . Gateway Magic or DD Deputy

Focus is a pretty straight, beaded putter

Really you have 2 options:

1. find something that is comfortable in your hand, and putt with that enough where your current motion adapts to the putter you're using.

2. try everything and hope you find that magical single putter that fits perfectly for you.

From experience, #2 is a really tough way to go about things. That said, something beaded and less stable with a judge is kind of a unicorn. Beads add stability and reduce glide, so finding something straighter than a judge is going to be really difficult to work out. You could try a small bead disc like a challenger or voodoo?

Play a couple of putter only rounds with a few putters and beat them in. You can beat a Judge in pretty quickly (in my experience anyway), then you may get the flight you want.

I personally prefer to putt with beat in putters, I just prefer the feel. I'm not a fan of new plastic.

And, find a putter that works closest to what you like, bead, or no bead and relatively straight for your wants, then just stick with it and learn to putt "it". Never mind chasing every putter out there. Once you get good at putting, you'll soon find in an emergency (lost putter, left it at home or whatever) you can putt with pretty much anything.

You can either control your putter, or be controlled by it; you choose.

Prodigy Pa3 in 350g plastic.

After that, maybe a Classic Hard Deputy.

I agree with find something that feels good in your hand, then go from there.

Don't listen to all of the "this is the best putter" comments, I would say it's the 86 Softie (which it is ) but they don't make those any more.
