Default Push Putter Looking for a Spin Putter

So I recently found that I have an occasional pain in my elbow when I push putt (similar to pre-injury McBeth style) and as a result I would like to learn a spin putt, but I currently use Rhynos and JK Aviars, but they're too OS for me to start with. I'm looking for putter that would be a good place to start. It HAS TO BE CONCAVE and preferably beaded, but neutral to US in stability. I've tried several rounded putters (Judge, Wizard, P1x, Challenger, Ridge, and Whale) and they all felt horrible in the hand. I have a Nova, but it sticks to my hand too much. Ideally it would be easily available and in a DX/Pro style plastic.

Sounds like you're looking for a Yeti Aviar. I recently switched my putting style from push/ spush to spin. I putter the PW Wizard before and still do. They're flat and fill the hand out and as they wear they puddle top. I think I have heard of some runs of fossil being puddly but again you described a Yeti.

Another option is the Kastaplast Reko, the Berg is also very concave but not much glide and also overstable.

Reko is what you want. Yeti I would try second if you don't like the Reko.

Another vote for the Reko. I like it in K3 plastic.

The Marshal in Classic plastic is also very good for spin putting.

Maybe I’m not understanding your requirements, but what about an atom?

Hmm, beaded and neutral/understable (and concave) is gonna be tricky. I've never seen a Reko but the first thing that came to my mind is a Banger GT. (Actually the first thing was an APX but it's got more of a Magnet/Aviar P&A rim than a bead)

The Element Plutonium is the RDG channel top and a Voodoo bottom but if you don't like Challenger, Ridge, etc feel you probably won't like it either. Plus it likes to be pushed rather than spun, low glide. The Focus is usually beaded and stable/understable but shaped a lot like a Wizard. I think maybe the Swan 2 is beaded? A Macana might be worth looking at, you can probably puddle top one easily.

I've also been converting to spin putting this year and I actually started out with a 150s Plasma Ion. I think it's really helped get the mechanics down smoothly, I've just gone up slowly in weight to make sure I keep getting clean spin on it.
