I get the deep putter thing; I tried to putt with XD's for a long time because I didn't like the deep feel of the Aviar. At the time, the Aviar was about it, though. Eventually I decided I just needed to get over myself and get used to it, which I did. Now the depth of a putter never is an issue for me, and I'm not limited to a certain type. It sounds like a flippant response (and it is to a certain extent) but "put on your big boy pants and get over yourself" has worked out really well for me.

Ions are considered deep? I need to reevaluate what I consider a deep putter then. Ions, to me, feel as deep as a Colt.

I almost gave up playing in the first month of playing when I was putting with an Aviar. I could never get a clean release. From advice of the forum, I picked up a Wizard and everything just clicked.
Then the Envy was released and nothing was ever the same; yet I could easily put the Wizard back in rotation tomorrow and be fine.

The specs are not that different from the Aviar to the Wizard. It amazes me how such small changes can make such a big difference in performance(admittedly confidence plays a large part of it)

It's 100% feel and varies from player to player; people will complain about X putter being too deep but liking Y putter when Y putter has a deeper spec than X putter. It's all in how it lands in your hand.

Well, not ALL. But you are talking about millimeters.

Yep agreed 100% and with the Wizard and Aviar all but Classic Grid that is due to how the wing fits with the nose compared to a Wizard. A Wizard is just what Innova woud call a V Aviar Big Bead.

Same here. Couldn’t putt with Aviars as a newb so I putted XD’s. Switched to Wizards in ‘05 and never looked back.

Yeah. This is what I was thinking. Funny how it works out that way.

I meant All I can use with Aviar is the Classic Grid due in part to nose shape and how the sing fits into the nose with all but the Classic Grid. This odd since I can use the Wizard which is just a V Aviar Big Bead. I prefer other putters but I can use Wizard due in part to the big bead.
