Default overstable putter

my new home course usually has a bit of wind and sometimes it's really bad. i need to pick up an overstable putter to use in the wind. thus far i've been using my z drone to putt in the wind and it works pretty well. but i usually putt with an XD so i figured that if i get an overstable putter, i can also use it for shorter drives too which the XD's don't do so well unless i want the shot to turn over.

so my question is what do you guys recommend for an overstable putter? i'm leaning towards discraft, so either a challenger or zone but am willing to consider other options as well.

Get a Zone, you will not be disappointed. I got one just for forehand putt and approaches. Tried it out for one round as my main putter. I do not think I will putt with anything else. I do carry a few other putters but they are more situational approach options. Get a Zone!

I find the Discraft Challenger, or the Innova Rhyno to be both overstable.

It depends on how overstable you need it to be.... If you want more like a Drone, go with a Zone, if you want overstable but not crazy overstable go with a Ringer or Challenger. I use Challengers for my main putter and I love them.

I'd throw a rock...not a Roc. Or at least I'd tape a rock to my putter
