Good thing about wooded courses I guess. Every week you consider taking the headwind drivers out of the bag. Time to go to the big course I guess!
I can use a Valkyrie in winds up to 20 mph like I did a little bit ago when I could finally play a round of Disc Golf and not have soggy discs. I had only a Valkyrie both low dome Star from 2009 Ice Bowl and a newer late 2016 Champion Glow both at 171 grams as my longest driver for a long time. I just have a technique of throwing the Valkyrie low and flat. I did not like the Star Destroyers most until 2014 were the beefy AJ ones and had to wait till 2014 when I finally found out the Disc came in Champion, have a 169 grams and a more beefy 170 gram Destroyer. I have thought about getting Teebird or Thunderbird but they are not comfortable in the hand. I have thought about getting an Orc but they are not comfortable in the hand.

Anyhow this post is suposed to be about Putters and when to Change them. I know the main putter my mom has is from 1998, was one an uncle found on a local course that only had the owners first name a Classic Grid Aviar ones with the micro bead at the time as late 1990's the Classic Grid Aviar, here newer bead less one from late 2016 was even in the same colors white with silver and weight 172 grams. I got her a backup and to be the longer putter for her, though she has a Rubber putter for that. My dad has had a last year produced Juju in Supreme plastic at 174 or 173 grams can't read that is his main putter he got new in 2005 for $30. Dad also Uses a from 2005 Ryhno in old Pro Plastic 175 grams, if lost I would recommend a R-Pro for him in the same weight as the Rhyno in old Pro was slightly floppy but not super floppy and R-Pro Rhyno is really similar feel to a broken in old Pro Ryhno.

I switch them out when I start missing all my putts because its not my fault, the putter is broken. But seriously, I was putting really well with the Gravity Hunters for a whole year, maybe two. Then suddenly fell in to a slump and could land a put if I walked up and stick it in the chains. I switched to Classic Blend Marshals and almost immediately found my groove again. Its a psychological thing but sometimes it works for me.

Pretty much. Unless it's cracked or warped to sheets, I keep 'em.

I've got two of them in rotation, the other one has a few more dings but nothing major. I try not to throw them for anything other than putts.

Yes, this. I also putt with G9i wizards and they last forever. I bought a ton of them when they went OOP and I'm still on my original

I think this question is best answered by the thrower. Much like actually picking your putter, only you can decide when it's time to replace it.

I say make your discs work for you, not the other way around. If you feel like your putting putter is not cutting the mustard any more because it's too beat up, get one that does, or switch molds, whatever. No need to be sentimental about it.

That being said, if you emulate numerous pros and take the advice of many by not throwing your putting putters, you will likely find that they only get better over the course of tens or hundreds of rounds. I guess if you already putt with an understable, glidey putter, you may find that they could get worse in the wind, but in that case I would keep your old one around for jump putts and cycle in a freshie.
