Default If Peter Piper picked a pair of putters...

Ive been in a putting funk lately.. so I'm trying out pairs of putters to try and get me out of it.

Ive always put with hard magnets, ones that are usually around 6/10 maybe 7/10 condition so they have a lot of flex in the plate but still a firm rim to grab.

I tried a pair of classic judges and I liked them.. but they were much smaller in my hands then the magnets and they seemed to float a bit more

I just bought a pair of matching SS chalky wizards to try out next, haven't gotten them yet.

What other pairs?

Notes:

Don't like really firm putters.
Don't like glossy hard to grip putters (KC pro aviars, star aviars, opto pures, etc)

Honestly don't care about beads, that I know of. Magnets have one, but can do without.

Would a pair of voodoos be worth trying even though I'm trying wizards?

I think I'd like to try a pair of softer pures, do they have any chalky type ones?

Oh I also got a 400 prodigy putter to try out also, but not a pair of them

Also, anyone who says "PUTTER EXAMPLE /thread" will be shot. I will also make it a mission of mine to never try the putter you suggested. I'm looking for some actual feedback

My opinion: try out those Wizards. Wizards are great, and SS is a nice blend that's not like throwing a chunk of wood, but won't go squishy in the summer.
Or since you already like Blizzard Pigs, I know a guy with a bunch of Pro Pigs who'd be happy to let a few go. Or, I recently have been experimenting with the Jokeri Basics, and they feel like a Pig without the thumbtrack, in a very grippy base plastic.

Personally I use 3 putters in my bag, Rhyno, Tank, and 86 Softie. Rhynos are a nice overstable putter for headwind putts and putts that I need to hyzer around a tree. Tanks are the straighter putter for anything inside 20 that has an open shot. 86 Softies are for my anny, uphill or outside the circle shots, nice finesse disc that just floats right at the basket. With these 3 putters, there's no shot that I don't have.

If you like the pigs, then the Tank and Rhyno should feel very natural for you

I'm not going to lie, i'm excited about the wizards. I threw a chalky one like a year ago and i really liked it but I was all like MAGNETS MAGNETS LOLOLOL.

I got a perfectly matching pair of 174g SS blue chalky wizards with white grateful dead bear stamps. Pumped.

I would love to try all 3 of those putters, especially the 86 softie. I dont' think I could get used to actually putting with a rhyno but I'd try it. Also, isn't a tank a bit like a piranha? If so, i already putted with piranhas, not looking to go back to that mold.

Have you tried any Vibram? The Sole is very similar to a Magnet.

I would look into Zero Medium Pures (softs are supposedly floppy soft) and Gravity Clutches if I were you. Those are both fairly neutral like your Magnets though. The Clutches were designed for Steve Rico to replace his beloved Magnets in fact so maybe my suggestions aren't up your alley.

There's also the old "everybody goes through it, just keep at it with your current putters" cliche.

Not the putters, no. I didn't really like the other vibram discs I threw but I'd at least like to get one in my hands.

The newer versions of the Tank are just beadless Rhynos, and the older versions were microbead Rhynos. Definitely not like a Piranha at all. The Rhyno is more of a utility putter when I need to hook around a tree, throw into a headwind or I sometimes use it for drives

I would like to try both of these also!

My magnets aren't going anywhere. I have four 4 chains magnets in varying degrees of wear. They're in the side pocket of my mojo just in case I'm out on the course and want to switch back.

Agree with Grunge. 86 the chalkies, and go with S or SS.

Or be adventurous and get some RFF's.
