I used to divide up my putters by different types of shots, but found out that the overall output of my various putting methods was better when I used one disc. I guess that acclimation and feeling of comfort and familiarity helps broaden one's putting abilities IMO. However, I can see the value of using a different type of putter when putting into massive headwinds or putting on a pretty drastic hyzer.

I'm a combo spin and push putter. Usually use a wizard unless I'm doing a loft putt or anhyzer putt in which I use a magic.

I'm the same way. I tried using a Rhyno for several months whenever I was putting into the wind, but I never got comfortable with the mold. I found that I was more consistent using my main putter (KC Aviar, admittedly a fairly stable mold) and just adjusting hyzer angles to compensate for a headwind.

I also think I'm better off just sticking with my main putter (soft magnet) and just adjusting for the wind.... unless it's 20 mph+, then i'll get out something overstable.

Although I'm a combo spin/push putter....not all spin putters use overstable discs. I use a blowfly, and actually I'm closer to being a "laser" putter....but mostly because of the disc I throw, if I do miss it does not go far. Putting definately is all about comfort, and confidence. Find what feels best in your hand, and be confident!

Try it, if you like it, keep it.

I've found a LOT of putters I hate. SEVERAL I LOVE and some i'm indifferent about.

The question is...when is the right time to use THIS putter over THAT one?

Tough Stuff.

I combo between spin and push. Sort a "spush" putter. I use a Magic as I like the putter to hold the line. If I want it to hyzer off, I release on a bit more of a hyzer angle, which I tend to do anyway on longer putts.

If I'm putting into a bit of headwind, I'll use my Voodoo. Feels very similar to the Magic in hand, but won't lift up and away like a Magic will. Same throwing motion, though.

I've been push putting most of the year but lately I've been practicing in the basement with a low ceiling so it's harder to do. Plus the last time I got to play outside it was windy so I went from the Focus (the Discraft ace race mold) to a Zone and more of a bullet/spin style. It seemed like the lower profile/more overstable Zone was better suited to the task than the Focus which works well for lobbing it like a horse shoe.
