Default Missed putts rolling....

Is this an unavoidable evil? Have recently hit a slump where everything I miss rolls 40'. Have a soft magnet that I use for riskier putts but seems any putter that comes down on its side is going to roll, and soft putters seem no less likely to come down on its side then firmer ones.

Whats everyones take on this? Do you carry a soft putter or do you just use your main putter and chalk the occassional roll to fate.

Something like a Rhyno won't roll much...I use a Rhyno for longer riskier runs and my Wizard inside of 30 feet. I rarely have a rollout problem.

30' is kind of the area im talking about. The misses that hit basket and then roll away stubbornly.

That's where the rhyno seems to shine...it just falls to the ground in a miserable heap...it's not a pretty flying object but it does it's job on risk/reward putts well.

Hyzer putts that miss tend to roll. If I'm worried about it rolling, I will putt a high anhyzer. I do feel like my Soft GT Banger will roll less than my ESP GT Banger.

Since switching to a JK Aviar-X, I haven't had an issue with roll-aways. I used to putt with a Rhyno as well, and like everyone was saying, it just dies when it hits the ground.

The JK Aviar has helped me cut down the rollaways as well, hasn't helped me putt any better though.

Use the softest Wizard you can find... SSSS is so floppy and absorbs so much of the hit that it will stick and sit there. And other folks on here are right -- if you're worried about the roll-away, try more of a loft putt with a neutral, sticky putter -- that is the least likely to roll away if you miss.

However, you will putt better (in the long run) with a stiffer putter -- more consistent release. So on every shot, I'd evaluate your risk/reward. If you're thinking the odds are high that you will make the putt, then use your regular putter. If the odds are only so-so and the roll-away is going to be death, then take the hit and step down to the sticky putter: you won't make as many with the sticky putter, but you won't be taking triple putts, either.
