If it's open and easy I will use a putting putter just because I'm lazy. Otherwise I tend to use my putting putters for just putting. Putting!

I'm throwing my putting Wizard right now, but it's just because I only have one. Once I get a few more, it'll probably be fresh Wizard, Seasoned Wizard, beat Polecat, and putting Wizard.

Star aviars 150 feet and in. Unless it's not a straight upshot and I use a nova for upshots that I don't want to skip or roll away.

I'm in between right now. I'll throw an Aviar on upshots but I don't feel as comfortable with them yet as I do with a Wizard. I put with Aeros, I have a few Star Aeros and an old CE Aero, but I don't throw them on upshots.

Yes and no for me. I like to take my fresh putters that I want to use for putting, and throw a single round from the shorts with them to give them a little bit of wear on them. After that round, they go into the putting rotation and only get used for putting until they're worn out. Once it's worn out then I will carry it for trick and rescue type shots.

I'll throw my putting putter on any turnover or anny approach out to 150ish. I don't worry as others do since I have a stack of 6 identical that I interchange. I don't have a favorite and just grab 2 from my practice stack when I head out.

I had been using baseline Clutch for putting, premium Clutch for driving, and baseline Harp for overstable approaches. I used to throw my putting Clutch for understable approaches, but I stopped doing that when my putter forehands improved.

Had a putter shake-up over the winter, and I will probably use some combination of Harp, Envy, and Atom this year, with exact roles to be determined this spring.

I do throw putting putters around the back yard for a while to wear the "new" off before putting them in the bag.

I have this weird tactile thing with my putters, I can't stand the feel of nicks or chunks missing from my putters (scuffing is fine though). Even those oversize stamps some companies put on their discs can feel irritating under my thumb.

So with that, I only putt with new discs and when they get to that "too irritating for putting stage" they become throwers.
