KC Pro Aviar. It's what I use now. Challengers and Wizards are fantastic as well, but I don't like the bullet nose of the Wizard and Pro-D just feels terrible to me.

To me it depends on what you're using it for. If you're driving a putter, I'd probably vote Wizard 9:10 times. But for putting and finesse up shots, I like my Challengers.
I've owned at least 50 wizards and not 2 of them have been the same. I got frustrated when I couldn't find duplicates of what I liked. So, I tried Aviars and wasn't a huge fan. Then I moved to the Challengers and haven't looked back

I've never thrown a Wizard so I can't attest to this claim. I do have 7 KC Pro Aviars and each one is exactly the same. Putting is all about consistency for me & I love the firmness and feel of KC Pro plastic.

Aviar, even though I don't care for it in KC plastic (heretic, I know. Too slick a feel for me. Now JK or Yeti, I'm there.)

Anyway, I'm not a fan of Wizards because they are too tall at 1.8 cm. My hand just seems to have a hard time getting a good grip, regardless of grip style.

I'm not a huge fan of Challengers for the same reason - feel - but can't remember the specific objection to them I had.

Of the 3, challenger, just can't get into the wizards
too deep and I don't do well with beads
About to start cleaning up my wizards to sell or trade (or give away!)

I would take those off your hands.

I putt with a Wizard. I picked the Wizard. Lots of reasons; all 3 are nicely overstable. The Wizard comes in more plastic options. A few of which I'm really a fan of. Maybe the most important reason, though, is every time I play Ozark Mountain I come away with 4+ Wizards.

i voted kc aviar. however i might be trying out a flx challenger soon. the kc pro current run is kinda horse****. its good hard plastic but if it hits the hole # plate there is a massive ding in it. it dings up worse than my dx to be honest. it feels good and i like the mold but if they made it more durable with more grip i would buy 5 of em. until then i think im seeking out a different slightly os putter

I picked the KC Aviar, its what I currently use for putting. I like putters that are hard/stiff & with a bead so its perfect for me. I follow the belief that soft/floppy putters don't come out of your hands as consistently as hard putters. Feldbeard said this is true & I've found it to be true in my experience also. If I had to choose a different putter it would be the Wizard.

Pretty much they are all the same disc, its all about the plastic. KC is the best to me so thats what I use. But I did use wizrds for a few years and when I made the switch to the aviar I felt as though they did not drop out of the air as quickly while putting.

Challengers, they are simply the only putter I will ever throw. Not because any of the other putters arent awesome but for me.... Challengers go in! Cam Todd challengers! Stiff buttery perfection. Put a little spin on them and Boom next hole.
