I just have to chime in really quick to defend my putter of choice: the Star Aviar. I carry two, a blue for approaches and some drives, and an orange strictly for putting.
I like the blue for approaches & short drives because its a little bit slicker and a bit firmer. I basically use it as a shorter Z-Buzzz when I need to stay super straight. It holds a nice tight line, it sits nicely with very little skip or roll, and it drives quite well for medium length holes. Although I prefer my 10x KC Pro for most driving duties, when I don't want any fade or I want a very gradual anhyzer, the Star Aviar it is.
For putting, the orange is the best putter I've used yet in my 4 years of playing DG. It's very soft and very grippy feeling, and I like that its tacky while still being somewhat slick so it comes off my hand nicely without feeling like I'm either sticking or slipping. For my style of putting, a big bead Aviar (as well as the Wizard and the Challenger) are too overstable for me and fade off too much on long putts. The DX Aviar (especially when broken in) turns too much on me and I have trouble keeping a tight line. Being the understable mold in overstable plastic, the Star Aviar is just perfect for me. My orange putting Aviar is definitely broken in, too. Not to the point of changing its flight, but to the point of being softer, a little more pliable, and a little tackier.
I'll agree with you in that I too don't understand how people putt with slick Champ and Z discs, but the Star is a different animal. I find it much grippier, softer, and better in the hand than either KC Aviars or grid-Aviars, with a straighter flight.
