Default 'best' putters for spin putts

Let me preface by saying I know there's no 'best' putter.

I'm looking for recommendations for putters from people who utilize spin putts. I like a shallow feel putter - it just seems like wardens are a little floaty? Maybe it's because I'm new to the technique? I've heard people having success with things from wizards and challengers, over to aviars and ringers. What do?

I think I'm a spin putter. I keep going back to a Legacy Hunter. Only disc in my bag from them.

I spin putt and use stiff Wizards. Superglow are my preference but the Fossil Wizards from RDG are money as well. The Fossil Wizards mold up a little lower and really go straight on a good spin. Over the years Ive really only ever had success with KC Aviars and Wizards. For me,beaded putters just feel better when spin putting.

I'm a Classic Warden putter, and more of a spin putter than a push putter. I guess I'm used to the Warden; it may be 'floaty' compared to less glide-y discs, but it works fine for me (except in a raging headwind beating my face, in which case I putt with the Harp or Gator).

You might also try the Stud; shallow, not glide-y...

I use a DGA steady. They are low profile, especially for beaded putters, and fly very straight on spin putts. They fight the wind pretty well too.

I am more on the spin side of the putting world and because of liking a shallower feel the Atom is my go to. Re are stable and can take some pop, but don't like to fade hard either. So if you like a shallow, beadless putter I would recommend it.

If you are one of the more rare Hyzer spin putters, the Swan 2 is worth a look. It's not very stable, but flies very straight especially with a little bit of angle.

Question: Are the Swan and Swan Reborn beadless?

I used to anhyzer spin putt with DX Rhynos - very little glide for better or for worse, but I liked the way they would flex to flat just as they crashed into the chains.

Judge. It's a shallower, straighter Wizard. You probably have a stack of them already.
