most pros use aviars, wizards/warlocks, or challengers. some use magnets, magics/voodoos, rhinos, or pigs (the last two are mostly for driving or windy conditions). beyond that, it's really only amateurs that use the other putters out there. that should tell you something. i've met one pro who throws bulldogs for putting, but he also putts overhand so he's kind of an oddball.
You want to hear something crazy? My most successful putting disc ever was an old beat up Banshee that I used to throw forehand on drives (though I putted backhand always). I was nailing tough putts all the time. Nowadays if I park a driver near the basket on a drive then I sometimes putt it out for birdie with the same driver since more often than not I have a better percentage with it. To me, this means I should avoid putters with high profile rims. This makes me want to use an XD, but that is of course more of an approach disc. Maybe if I start throwing without my index finger embedded deep under the rim, I can possibly get better results with a high profile rim. Practice practice practice.
