I have a little more spin on my putts than Dave (a little tiny bit of elbow bend), but I prefer a SSSS or a 5S Wizard. I have G9i (good for driving) and a SSS putter I use for upshots sometimes.

The RFF is too soft for my tastes, though.

I agree with the one above who said adopt elements that work for you.

Got some KC Pro Aviars and yeah they are stiff!
I like them.
I have been practicing the spring from my wrist within 20' and notice a difference with the hard disc. I got 175's but now think I should have gotten done lower weight putters as well.

From farther out...the Aviar is much different.
I used to do the spin / dropshot with my challenger, and now trying to learn this hyzer break putt that Climo talks about on his website is tough.

If you want to feel the difference between floppy and stiff putters, you should try putting with an R-Pro Aviar, or an RFF Wizard or something. When you push putt with those, you can really feel the disc bending as you push it foward. That's what you don't want.
