Default Least consistent Putter, What do you think it is?

Okay I got the idea from someone who made one on least consistent high speed driver.

I am wondering what the least consistent Putter is?

I have found the R-Pro Pole Cat to be the least consistent putter made. In February of 2018 I felt this disc up in the store and one was Floppy like a Soft Magnet when broken in, another was stiff as if it were Innova's hard Pro plastic, and the last was how R-Pro for most molds in R-Pro is supposed to feel.

Easy. The answer is Gateway (fill in the blank).


Are you expecting the plastic to be consistent from run to run? fuhgetaboutit.

For lack of another answer, I'll go along with Gateway, particularly the Wizard. Supersoft can be anything from near-Soft hardness to near-SSS softness. Some say the variations are a good thing, but I don't agree.

But in the overall, putters usually aren't all that inconsistent in the same mold and plastic. At least that's been my experience.

Well with putt inconstancy it is usually the way the one plastic is for a single mold. So yeah that is why I made my choice.

Another good one is Is the plastic on the Soft Magnet. The Soft Magnet can be almost like the Steady line of discs to the rubbery flex of a Soft X putter. The Soft Magnet is the reason I use a different uphill/downhill putter for that slot when my main putters are the Magnet.

Wizard and Rhyno are pretty all over the place but Wiz is run so much in so many plastics that it’s vound to happen.

The Aviar. Sometimes it has a bead, sometimes no bead, sometimes a tiny bead. Sometimes it has a nose spacer or is puddle topped, all kinds of different plastics. That disc has a serious identity crisis.

Those are different Productions of nearly the same disc unless you are talking the specific standard Aviar P&A mold.

That makes for a hard to find disc when the Soft Plastics and occasionally Eraser do not stay true about half the time.

I consider all those to be different molds. To me, the Aviar P&A is not the same mold as the Aviar Classic or the Big Bead Aviar. As to the name, it's kinda like George Foreman naming all of his kids "George"...
