One mold. And none of this "when I switch putters in a few months..." stuff. Get rid of the others. Don't be tempted to switch. repetitions are most important. It isn't repetition when you introduce variables.

I use multiples, which I carry depending on wind, distance, etc.

Never understood the marriage to a single putter - People throw all kinds of drivers and mids depending on conditions, lie, etc.

I treat putters like any other class. Gonna need more than one mold.

Better dg'ers probably disagree, but I'm stickin to it.

I guess I shoukd clarify this some. I practice putting with one mold. Throwing putters are different because I carry two molds therefore whem oractixing woth my throwers I use both molds.

Voted for what I have around. Mostly I don't have a whole bunch free time do more disc I can putt at basket better for me. If I could I would have 10 same putting putters for practice but I don't and can't bring myself to spend that much money just to practice simple short putts

I'm no great putter, but...

Sometimes I'll just chuck lots of discs within the circle to try and work on something small. Even mids sometimes. But if I want to be as serious as possible, I'd rather only throw one disc- not even multiples of the same mold.

When I used to shoot recurve bows a lot, I practiced mostly with one arrow at a time. Partially because I made them from cedar shafting and no two wooden arrows are perfectly alike, but also because shooting archery with no sights requires a crapload of concentration, and shooting multiple arrows back-to-back ultimately led to each shot receiving less concentration.

Shoot an arrow, go get it, walk back, shoot again, and you really focus on each shot. I feel like putting practice is the same way- at least for me.

Nearly the same mold I use, Magent/Titanic mold. I have 3 Magnets old one 2005 that is stiff as they come in Pro D, 2 Jawbreakers each with its own purpose and a sharpie copy of ring of stamp on them so I can use them for better, thumb placement. If I lost the Pro D stiff hard Magnet I might look at a Clutch in the stiff plastic and see if I like the disc, if not I know a guy who uses the Clutch though the soft premium X like plastic one. Prior to August 2017 I had the stiff 2005 mold my brother used for a month when he was trying to find a putter mold and a newer softer 2006 hard Pro D Mangnet that I warped hitting a tree on a long putt. Then I got a reason to get the Jawbreaker plastic. I also wanted to see if the delamination was going to happen like it did to old one or two run of color burst putters from the 2000's. The Jawbreaker discs do not, they got the plastic better this time for most of them.

For 98% of my putting I only use my Magnet mold otherwise if I am practicing the flick putt or uphill/downhill putting I use my Lighting Upshot #2, or U-2 in Prostyle plastic.

I guess if you don't want to invest in one putter enough to buy multiples, old putters that feel close enough and fly the same in the circle couldn't hurt too much.
Yep I agree with the longer putts, flight does change enough to make a difference everything about 20-25 feet and out for me the wind changes how close I could be and still have a close putt.

Longer then 35 Feet out about 37-40 feet back I am using a Shark both the old Pro and a Star Shark at 174 grams for my putting style putt or like a short midrange shot.

Just get a pole and paint two lines of where a basket if you hit between these lines the disc will go in on average 95% of the time.

I like to practice with 5-6 judges weighing 172-173 grams ranging from 25-40 feet. I do this 90% of the time. Sometimes i will give wizards a go (same weight), my friend suggested i use them as my wind putter, this started in 2016.

I don't get why some players unless they are having problems finding a putter they like, would use a Different mold every 6 months. I just keep one as players who use Wizard mold hate the G9I plastic so I can't sell the disc it would just sit online for ever. Other then that I use the same mold for main putter and a different for uphill/downhill putting that most likely will be one day be replaced with one of my Jawbreaker Magnets when that one gets too floppy to use as a regular putter.
