Default Stable Discraft Putters

I have a couple Discraft Crystal z Challenger putters in my bag that I have been using for my approach shots and my putts. It is a little more overstable than I would like for my disc to be on putts around 30 ft or shorter. I have been looking at the Soft APX, Rattler, and a Magnet and I was just wondering if people could lead me to the differences between these putters as there is no Discraft manufacturers around here to figure this all out.

just order a gateway wizard and save yourself from trying the rest of the putter market

APX is like a comet, Rattler is a faster lid, and the Magnet is by far my favorite of the 3. Its great off the tee and a good straight putter. You could also just pick up a D Challenger and beat it up a bit as well.

Would the Wizard (medium) kinda be a mix of a plastic still soft and grippy but yet still have some sturdiness?

And what's the difference between the Magnet and the Soft APX??? They both have a stability rating of 0 so is it something different with the rim or the flight?

If you want straight, go with the Magnet. I've tried Voodoo & Wizard, they are more overstable then the Magnet. Not sure about the others.
I wouldn't say the medium Wizard is soft & grippy, a soft wizard isn't as soft & grippy as a soft Magnet. Another straight putter would be the Omega super soft.
I personally prefer a grippy, soft putter for close putts & a bit harder putter for approach putts. I use that super soft Wizard for an approach putter, but I'd say it's a bit overstable.
Your best bet for feel is to buy local. It seems that everytime I set out to get a new putter, the plastic feels different then the mold I had before (except for the soft magnet).

the wizard softness is confusing because the soft wizard isn't soft at all but like a pro d challenger stiff. If you got a local vendor who sells gateway pic up some of their putters and hold them and see if you like the feel. I have discovered that I am a fan of a stiff putter and with an overstable putter it takes a bit to learn but man is it more dependable. especially when their is wind.
Also LOVE throwing the wizard off the tee and on approaches as it goes straight as an arrow forever.
