Default Putting putters

I am more of a pitch putter then anything. I currently use the DD Deputy. My question is does glide really matter when inside the circle. I ha e tried Wizards but the just dropped to fast for me.

I'm more of a pitch putter and I found that more glide works best for me. I also use the DD Deputy. Inside the circle I think it just depends on how hard you putt. I too have tried wizards and they dropped too fast for me, then I switched to the judge which was great but I found that at times I wasn't putting enough umph into my putts so it would hyzer out on me. When the Deputy was released I tried it and loved it and haven't looked back. With the deputy I do caution that on a short putt that the disc does like to get up quickly, so be careful as you may bang off the top of the basket.

That is what actually brought this post on is lately I have been hitting the top of the basket I have been using the deputy for about 9 months now.

I love the Deputy, I just make sure to adjust when I'm close to the basket so I don't hit the top. Nothing stings more than missing short putts. Give the judge a try. In my experience it doesn't get up as much as the Deputy.

Go with whatever feels best in your hand, and stick with it.
Personally, I prefer a medium-low glide putter with high stability. I find it's consistent in any playing conditions. (I putt with K3 Rekos).
I had a battle for a long time with different putters, but eventually decided just to stick with a mold that felt and flew well enough. Over time, you'll build confidence and consistency in a putter you invest yourself into. Trying to find the next best putter won't help you... Just commit!

It doesn't to me. In the immortal words of DGCR's most loveable banned troll (Frank Delicious); "Inside the circle a putter's a putter."

Sometimes the answer is real simple, like if you're hitting the basket then aim higher.

Pitch putting has always seemed to lend favor to overstable, low glide discs. More predictable in a wider variety of conditions. If you're a pitch putter you don't really want to be lobbing a glidey putter out there in windy conditions.

If you're hitting the front cage the answer is to train yourself to aim and putt higher.

Are we talking about hitting the top of the cage or the top of the basket? I'm confused.

I've always called the whole "target" a basket.
