spike in grip line. i love the zero line for a putter but a few good tree hits and it won't be the same. grip line has a great feel and you can really put some sauce on it.

the sinus is even more stable too if you want something you know will not turn over.

I would agree an Aviar is the best. I would suggest picking a putter that feels good in your hand, learn how it flies and stick with it. I have 2 putters in my bag and have had them both for over 15 years. They feel comfortable in my hand when I putt and I know what they're going to do. One's a Ching small bead Aviar the other is the original 86 Softie.

I'm definitely a fan of the R-Pro Dart as my driving putter. It's super straight flying and will hold pretty much any line you throw it on!

I love my Challengers for driving. I've got three different plastics in my bag (Pro D, FLX, Cryztal), and I'd trust all of them for drives and putts. I do prefer the Cryztal though for drives.

Just recently I started driving with my D Banger GT and must admit it has performed really well. I have been playing the putter swap game for a couple weeks, but I just keep coming back to the Banger because of the way it feels in my hands. I picked up a soft one this afternoon and can't wait to try it tomorrow. If all goes well, the Banger will become my workhorse putter.

For me it depends on the shot. I almost always (with an exception, which I'll mention later) put a little hyser on my putter drives, so the hole layout and headwind dictates what putter I'll use for a drive.

For most straight, anny, or minor hyser drives I'll employ a Magic. I tried using an Ion, and I just couldn't get the feel of it, so I went back to using my Magic today which I love for any of those shots.

If there is a minor headwind or I want a bit of fade on the end of the disc's flight, I'll use a Wizard. The Wizard handles a little headwind really well.

For VERY strong headwinds, or if the hole is a dogleg left, I'll use a Pig. I can crank on the Pig really hard, and it will not turn over. Also, I haven't seen a wind yet that can turn it over. This is the only putter I drive with that I release flat. The Pig also works really well for short flicks....

Exactly what I do. Exactly.

The only thing with the Aviar P&A, Magnet and similar discs is they can start to get a bit squirrley once you're throwing them over 220' or so. Some people don't find that, or mind, but it's the reason you see so many people suggesting the beaded or more stable to overstable putters.
