IMO, you might want a less stable putter than the Pro-D.

IMO, Wizards and Pro-Ds are probably the best "overall" putters on the market. Both can handle more torque than a standard DX Aviar and are alot better for approaching or throwing off the tee. That being said.... I like the DX Aviars and Star Aviars more as, IMO, they hold more glide. I couldnt rely on either for the approaches that I could for a Pro-D or a Wizard, but I have a 10x.

What I tell people in the shop is for strictly putting, I like an Aviar. For a multi-disc or a long approach disc, I reccomend the Wizard. For all three, either a Pro-D or a Wizard. Most choose the Wizard, most return to buy more.

Hey chase, can you bring up 2 175 Pro-Ds and the lightest one you got to Walnut? I'm having a hard time getting one out here. Maybe a trade...???:D

I don't think it makes a difference what putter you use as long as it feels confident in the hand. The only reason I like to have a light putter is for turn overs. The more and more I play the more I go to my putters for help. I pull out a driver as a last resort anymore, and midrange is used very little.

For those who putt low speed or lob, the putter shouldn't matter much with in 40 feet. It's all Tai Chi, shifting body weight for the least amount of muscle use. The arm becomes numb from shoulder to wrist, painting a line to the basket, always trusting my arm to do what it needs to, giving me the freedom to focus on only one thing; my putter in the basket. 8)

You guys should keep driving to the QCs, and play Matzen Lake on Sunday. I got a place for yall to crash at, if needed.

You can come to the QCs and eat some REAL Pizza, Harris.

Are we going to start this over again? If they want real pizza, they can skip right on through the QC, cuz there isn't anything worth stopping for!

I'm starting to notice a trend here---when I go to read a thread and the last post is by KC, you can pretty much bet on the fact that the topic has drifted. :lol:
