Who doesn't need advice on putters?

Honestly, the best advice you're going to get is "try them all and use the one you are most comfortable with." Popular putters include: Aviars, Wizards, Magnets, Titanic (actually a magnet in better plastic), Challengers, Bangers, VooDoos, Warlocks, Magics, and so forth.

Buy 3-4 and trade them for 3-4 others...when you find the one that makes you wet buy 3-4 more of it and hope to god it isn't something discontinued.

Yup, try them until you like one. Then try a few more just to make sure. Learn the one you choose until you can throw it better than everyone else. Then go practice some more.

No one putter is the best for everyone even though some might try and convince you otherwise.

A putter needs to feel good in your hand. I would also ask to try others people putters and see how you like them, before you go out and spend a bunch of money.

For beginers, I have seen the Soft Magnet work the best.

I agree with midnight but it mostly has to do with your confidence. You can putt with anything and if your mind isnt right then your going to suck. I recently have switched putters because I was looking for something a little more consistant. Im not telling you what to use but TONS of people putt with Gateway stuff, especially wizards. I Just got a couple of the Organic SS Wizards and love them to death. All 4 that I have feel and putt exactly the same which I have never felt in a putter before and never in the regular SS, so I think Im sold on the organic for sure.

Dont listen to what anyone says and get a Banger-GT Soft X

And by that I also am telling you not to listen to me and to not get a Banger-GT Soft X.

And by that I am telling... Ahh forget it, it is a paradox.

See what feels right to you TBH.

the first putter i ever got was an aviar. Honestly, if you work with 1 putter long enough it will work, its not as much of a science as drivers...
