Putter Choices

Postby ghstinshll » Tue Apr 17, 2007 10:58 am

Ok guys, here's hopefully a simple question... I had a couple of Upshot putters, just because they were cheap & looked cool back in the day. sinc ethen, I've come to love the Banger GT. I just watched a putting clinic video on Discraft's site, and they had 4 guys showing their differences in putting styles from 100' out. Jump, hyzer, and a stall shot...

Here's my question: Do you use a different type of putter from a longer distance? My assumption is NO, but am curious if that's something to try...

I use a more beat up version of my main putter.

I never throw my main putter. It is strictly for putting. I like to use beat in or less stable putters for upshots and newer putters for driving.

I would say that you would be fine to use a Rhyno for all putts, up shots, and most of your drives of 500' and in. Follow this advice and you will soon surpass what you once thought to be your maximum disc golf potential.


Seriously though, I use my DX Rhyno's for the majority of my up shots, aside from the ones where I need to avoid obstacles by going around or over them. I do 90% of my putting with an extremely beat in DX Rhyno, and left to right up shots from 150' and closer I use the same disc. Hyzer approach shots and head wind putts I tend to use a newer, more stable version of the same mold.

Please take this information lightly, for I am very biased when it comes to the Rhyno. Try one though, they are sweet dude.

I've been using a Pro Rhyno this year but I'm buying a Aviar and Wizard today bcz my putting sucks w/a Rhyno. It's too over stable. Great for approaches though.

Can't stand the Ryhno. I used it for the first months I switched to star Aviar in any make its a much better putter. The 3 LSF was really annoying in the ryhno. It gets to the basket fine then fades hard.

I agree, I tried a Rhyno and didn't care too much for it. I putted better with my driver than I did a Rhyno. I currently use a Pro Spider for most my putting.

Would a Banger GT cover something that would be missed by a Wizard, Pro D Challenger and a KC Aviar?

I missed something here... You said you putt w/ a spider, a multipurpose disc, right? Now you're opening up a whole can of worms. Anser is simple. Buy all 4, and try them out for the difference in feel, flight, and of course - stick. Then you'll find your putter.
