When I threw them, I enjoyed the Soft-X quite a bit because it was super grippy, pretty durable for being a "soft" plastic, and was pretty firm. It's definitely not floppy like a Soft Magnet. The Pro-D is good too though. Too bad you didn't include an option for both...

I have the GT Soft, but I also have an original Buzzz GT Elite X that I use as a midrange in my MS bag.

the elite x soft is the only way to go, but there is a variety of textures. the pink, white, and red have had the most consistent feel for me.

I didn't include "both" because I am going to buy either one so I need to know which one is better

What worked for me might not work for you. There are both good and bad to the plastics. What are you wanting from this Banger?

I want a consistent putter. Something to use almost everytime when putting.

You want a consistent putter? Practice!

I bought all my Soft Bangers around the same time, so I can't help you there in terms of consistency of molding. I tried the Banger in the first place because it felt comfortable in my hand, and the plastic was amazingly grippy. I didn't like the Banger and moved on because it dropped out of my hand too fast and hit the cage instead of the chains. I wasn't as confident of a putter then as I am now though. I would happily revisit them if I didn't prefer the Wizard.

Again, that doesn't mean that a Banger won't suit your game. Just giving you my feedback on them.

^This plus Bangers are better throwing putters anyway.

Edit: Pro-D all the way.
