Default A Slightly OS Putter That is Widely Availible for Cheap

I currently putt with a Luster P2 when dry and a pair of JK Aviars when wet. I've been trying to move to one putter but the D, P, and X P2s are hard to acquire in 173+. To make matters worse the BB Aviar mold isn't regularly produced in Champ. What I'm looking for is a putter that comes in a firm durable plastic as well as a soft baseline plastic. I would prefer to have flat or puddle topped. I would prefer the putter to be able to handle power but without being overly OS. I can putt with beaded or beadless, it really doesn't affect me that much. I've been thinking either Wiz or Challenger as I have experience with both but I am open to other suggestions. My league has a bunch of cryztal Challengers so i would have easy access to them.

The Challenger is a good putter, and the Jawbreaker plastic is excellent plastic for putting. It would pair well with the Cryztal Challengers as the throwers.

I also always suggest the Judge (beaded) or Warden (beadless) in these situations. Both come in the various Classic levels of softness/hardness. The Judge comes in Lucid and Fuzion, and the Warden comes in Fluid, which is a softer form of Lucid (for lack of a better explanation).

I would say go with Challengers if you have easy access to Cryztals.

Discraft's D plastic is pretty soft too.

Otherwise Wizards are great, but the premium versions are not usually very good.

Judge is a good option too as its not really OS.

Westside Shield is available in premium plastics, feels great in the hand for putting, BH drives, and FH drives/upshots

It does have a slight, hardly noticeable bead

Hyzerfarm on eBay has 172g d-p2s and 172 x-p2s. If u like p2s, stick with them. That one gram difference is not noticeable.

You can have me to blame if you can't find any p-p2s on Hyzerfarm... I just ordered 3 172 gram ones last night

Wizard paired with a Scale for similar feel but added fade/wind resistance.

You can do some killer things with this duo.

Scales all day. My main putter, driving putter, hit-and-stick approach disc. Just a great overstable slow disc.
