Default Driving Putter in Premium plastic

My home is course is pretty short, so I used putters to drive a lot. Problem is, they get dinged up, warped and tacoed in a relatively short period of time.
Anybody have a recommendation for a putter that would be good in premium plastic, that would also be tacky and grippy? I have experience throwing aviars, wizards, warlocks, challengers, foci, and a few others along the same vein. I liked them all about the same, so no real preference.

I love using aviars off the tee, but only in dx plastic. A star aviar is just too slick and doesn't have the same glide.

my favorite is the the cryztal flx challenger from 2007 but they can be pricey and hard to find. a regular flx challenger has a nice grippy feel and good stability for driving. the flx plastic never really gets dinged up and it takes a while for it to lose any stability. cryztal challengers can be great drivers also but some are slicker than others. the tackier ones are nice. ions are great driving putters but newer runs might not have that grippy feel you are looking for. i havent thrown them but champ rhynos are overstable and durable.

This I don't like the FLX plastic but the cryztal is grippier than normal Z and it seems to get tackier as it beets in some.


Wait why am I telling you this?

Nevermind they suck donkey balls! You say away form my crappy crappy disc!

Another vote for a Soft Anode. It's my favorite putter to throw. Use it off the tee, and for most all upshots inside 250'.

Thanks for the input, I've been looking around and thought that both flx and cryztal challengers would fit the bill nicely.
