The Warden comes to mind, I learned to throw it far and accurate because it made finally find a fan-grip that worked for me.

Throwing the Opto-X Compass sidearm was a very recent game changer too...

The Vibram Putter aka VP (RIP). It showed me the how useful an OS approach disc can be. Currently carrying a Zone.

JK Aviar and Roc. The JK gave me the perfect feel in hand and enough stability that taught me that I have to putt flat with confidence. I'm still trying to find the most comfortable motion, but putting and throwing JKs has been really eye opening. The Roc showed me how versatile a midrange can be as well as how to efficiently throw any disc. The Roc illuminated errors in my throwing motion that I had been ignoring, but once they were dialed the Roc quickly became the disc I reach for most and gave me much more control over all of my shots.

The Buzzz made everything click for me. Second would be the Sidewinder.

I agree, currently my other putting putter is a slow Magnet being the DGA Proline Titanic more for hot days in summer where the Jawbreaker Magnets do not or rather will not work in hot weather. The Titanic Should be speed 1 due to being taller/more nose but the mold is same 2 as a Magnet. Titanic is a slow speed putter that can be used to throw a tad harder then a Magnet as a Magnet would really go sailing past basket due to being slightly lower profile faster disc.

Star destroyer from a McBeast challenge.
I realized I had no business throwing a disc like that. Shortly after I got rid of a lot of discs in my bag and focused on what works rather than what I thought would work.

The superhero taught me to throw a backhand hyzerflip properly, because if you mess up it will turn over very fast but done right it will flip slowly

I'm going to say a beat-in stable putter. For me, a JK Aviar was my first disc to hit that spot (now it's Wizards), but it totally changed my game to be able to hyzer-flip to late turn without having to mash on something.
