Default Do you practice with one mold, or multiple?

Looked around for a bit and didn't see a post on this.

I was wondering if you guys practice putting with one mold, or all the putters you own. Whichever one you do, why do you do it that way



PS: wasn't too sure if this should actually be put in the Technique and Strategy section rather than the disc section, if so please move this over there.

One mold. All putters fly differently, and even though I will probably be able to make it with any putter from 20 feet, I want to practice consistent feel for those 30-50 footers. I used to practice with everything I owned, but have seen a lot of improvement switching to one mold. I kept a few putters I really liked and traded in for a stack of aviars, but pick your fav and stick with it. You will have ups and downs, but overall you will gain more consistency sticking with one mold.

Need a different option. I practice with 2 molds, but not all putters. I just practice with Envies and Proxies, but own 8 or 9 different molds.

At least 10 of the same mold. I do it that way, because...well, that's my putting putter. I want my grip to be consistent. Also on longer jump putts the flight numbers start to show, and you really need that to be consistent.

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.

I almost added an option for only a couple putter molds, not sure why I didn't.

Personally I use a stack of marshals as well, I have around 20 of them but I only practice putting with 6 or 7 of them that are dedicated to putting, I have the others as throwers in different plastics.
I started this poll just out of curiosity as to what others use.

Have a stack of 5 Challengers that i use for putting practice. How are you gonna learn how the mold you putt with all the time behaves if you are constantly throwing everything you have at the basket?

I have a bucket of 25+ putters with about 10 molds from Aviar's to Wizard's that I practice with. I agree it's probably best to stick with one mold but I don't want to buy 8 more Soft Proxy's at $15 a pop knowing that in six months time that might not be my favorite anymore.

Practice basket in the garage has XT Aviars, Yeti Aviars, P1Xs, and one Magic.
It does not translate to issues on the course.

Over time I've used numerous, now that I'm settled I have about 20 Clutches that I use (and sold/traded/gave away the others). Depends upon how "built" your bag is and how leisurely your mindset is about disc golf.
