Default Best Legacy Putter? Hunter/Clozer/Clutch/Prowler

There's 4 Legacy putters out now. Gotta admit, I've got at least one of each. I'm curious what the general consensus is for my fellow legacy throwers on which is the best.

I know ol' Stevie Rico loves the clutch. His boy Bobby throws Hunters. All the other legacy pro's play everything in between.


So what do you throw, when, and why?
For me, I like to carry 2 hunters and 2 clozers. I use the clozers for most things (putting, putter drives), but I like the hunters when I need a perfectly straight up shot, or very little fade. I also love them for jump putts. Add a little anyhyzer and they just float straight in the direct you want. The clozer, though, is just nice and stable.

Anyone else's thoughts?

I use hunters now and love them for long putts and approaches, but occasionally the obscene glide gets me in trouble with hitting the belt up top. I'm trying to find a couple protege prowlers to test out but will keep the hunters in the bag for sure

I think you can still throw a poll on this thread. Clutch is the most popular, with the clozer a close second.

My main putter is a Gravity Clutch. Love it.

Off the tee, I have an ace with an Icon Clutch. Yep, that's my model!

I've used/tried all but the Clozer. Icon Clutch was my initial go-to putter, even before making a full switch to an all-Legacy bag. Picked up an Icon Hunter for those longer outside the circle putts, it doesn't dump down as quickly as the Clutch due to its glide, though sometimes I even miss long putts (70+ feet out) long as it flies so smooth and doesn't have as much fade as Clutch, but at least it gets there with a chance to go in. Most recently I've been putting with a Sparkle Prowler, likely sticking with it. Not sure if its the plastic or the mini-bead, but seem to click better with it. Or maybe its the US Masters stamp vs vanilla production stamp on the Clutch .

Is the Clozer noticeably more OS than the other three? Numbers put it a bit more OS, what's the reality? Had one very windy day last weekend, first time I had to try and putt in those kinds of winds with any of my Legacy putters, Prowler was decent, but like with Ghosts, I was kinda missing the OS beef that was my VIP Harp (used it for both headwind putts and upshots/midrange replacement).

I switched from Clutches to Hunters. I get a cleaner "pop" on the release with them it seems. Plus, I didn't really jive with the Clutch for drives whereas I did instantly with the Hunter. So, in trying to consolidate molds, Hunter got the job. 2 Proteges for putting (they take turns and wear in evenly), a red sparkle and white Pinnacle for drives and upshots (Pinnacle is a bit more stable)

Would love to try some of the Legacy putter but not sure where to start. My understanding:

Clutch = magnet clone
Clozer = beaded clutch, more OS
Hunter = similar to Aviar P&A, straight and glidey
Prowler = like a lower-profile wizard

Is that about right? Which is more OS, a Clozer or Prowler?

I'm in the process of switching from DD Prime Judge to Gravity Prowlers.

I do really like the Sparkle Hunters. Feel really nice in the hand and feel great in bad weather.
