I say go with the Soft Magnet. That is a good one to start with

Here you go midnight magnet lovers, check out these bad boys.

It would be mainly for approach shots of course.

Let's just say I'm overly analytical and quite opinionated - it isn't everyone's cup of tea - but it's me. Ask me what I think and I'll tell you. My avatar wasn't an accident - I mean what I say, and more importantly, say exactly what I mean. I suppose folks like me can be dangerous in a forum like this.

Always want to improve my game, but I never lose sight of why I play; for the sheer fun of it (that, and the power and grace of a beautiful S-shot).

The DGA Titanic is the Magnet is ESP plastic. It goes dead straight for me once you break it in a little bit.
I'd rank the Discraft putters you started with in your first post of this thread as follows (in order of increasing stability):

Magnet & Rattler
Soft APX
Challenger

Been a while since I tossed a Rattler: went pretty straight, but feels somewhere between a catch & throw disc and a conventional putter. Yes, it's made specifically for disc golf, I'm just describing how it feels to hold one if you aren't able to get your hands on one. The other three feel (not throw) more similar to each other than Rattler does to any of them. It's deeper, and just feels "beefier."

From what most of the gang says, if you want to a dead straight putter from Discraft, and prefer the feel of a "conventional" disc golf putter, it seems like you ought to go with a Magnet in your choice of plastic. Seems like Midnight's given you a pretty good handle on that. Already published my dissertation on the differences between the Soft APX and the Challenger. And there were a couple of posts providing some useful info on the Wizard.

Good luck finding the right putter. It really is a hit or miss proposition!
Man, was that ever a bad pun!

Wow, those are nice, but I would have to test fly one, before I spent that much on one.

They just arrived...

at home and I am at work

I probably wont get a round in until Monday but I likely will have those out just tossing them. I'll try to give you my first impressions if I can remember.

I purchased a discraft starter set when I first started playing. The soft APX was the one that was in the package. I tried several other putters but always came back to the APX. It files very straight and I have come to the conclusion that this is the putter I use and have stopped trying to replace it .

Well I have them now out with me on my blackberry now and while they were both listed as soft they are both pretty firm. The voodoo seems more blunt on the edge while the magic seems to angle sharper very slightly on the top of the edge.

I don't really see much difference than an aviar initialy but maybe on some longer putts. I'll give them a good go round more but Really I could just get used to any one I've seen.

One last thing I want to try is one of those really soft and bendy putters. Any suggestions?

I did the same thing with the Magnet. I thought it did well, but I wanted to try other putters, and I kept coming back to the Magnet. The only problem with the Magnet is it beats up really fast.

Now that I found the Titanic I have a straight flying disc, that dosen't get beat up, and flies better with time.

I think I am probably going to get myself a couple Soft Magnets and a couple Soft APX's. Figure out which one I like and then I'll sell/trade the others. I am still very interested in some of Gateway's putters so I am trying to find a shop around that carries them. Just curious if anyone knows any types of stores that carry them.
