These Yetis sound pretty much exactly what I'd want in a baseline putter. I'll have to get one to try out.

PS. MVP already did the slightly concave top with the first production run medium ION. The only medium ION I have that has a flat top is my brand new milky light blue.

I'm not even convinced that the diagram with 'hard vs soft putter make zones' is that accurate for yeti aviars. While the flight plate is grippy, the rim is very much like a good D challenger - firm, but with a bit of tackiness. I'd say that the make zone is closer to a hard plastic putter than a soft one. Over-analysis FTW.

Because I like flat, stiff putters with some glide. The yeti is the complete opposite of that.

I got a couple Yetis Wednesday. I putted with both of them and two Wizards for half an hour Wednesday and Thursday each and then took one of the Yetis to the course today. In my apartment they putt pretty close to a Wizard, maybe a little bit more hyzer to them if I'm all the way down the hallway. On the course I went 8 for 9 with the Yeti and the putt I missed, I missed low and hit basket (my own fault). I never had any real challenging putts but it was pretty windy out.

That's all I have to say about that.

A buddy of mine playing in the Advanced division at the Memorial right now picked me up a pair upon request and I'll be giving them a run for putting when he returns with them. Can't wait.

Love these for approaches and if I still was digging softer putters I would be putting with these. The 168-171 ones I have are great for those little 200' shots. Not really digging the max weight ones right now b/c they are not stable enough to be my hyzer driving putter and I already have a money straight KC aviar right now. They would make good on the fly replacements if you lose your beat aviar though.

yeti glide > challenger glide

or maybe my yetis are broken

I really like the stiffness of the one I got today. Stiff but a little give. The flight plate isn't too sunk. There were some at the store that were too sunk. I would be disappointed if I ordered them online and I got one of those deep-dish Yetis.

Just like people have been mentioning, my Yeti grips the chains too well. I got some unkindly spits.

FWIW I bought a mostly yellow with some orange swirls transitional disc.

I just got my max weight yellow ones today. One of them is flat top and one is sunken in and they both feel semi rigid and slightly grippy. If I wasn't sore from snowmobiling all weekend I'd be out throwing them....I guess I'll just have to wait till after work tomorrow at the local pitch-n-putt.

I played 36 holes at my pitch-n-putt course and played almost exclusively with the YP Aviars save two holes. They seem like they'd fly like my DX AD when it gets beat a little more (red, max weight, reverse dome like yetis). They seem like they have the flight of a GL Fuse, just slower. I love how straight they are and are a little more forgiving on release issues and nose angle compared to my other BB Aviars. I was able to hyzer-flip these in the range of 270'+ and like how they finish. Everything was real gradual, slow, and very controllable. I can see this disc becoming a staple in my bag. I'll need more time with them to see how they season, but I'm favoring the disc for now. I just can't wait till it is summer so I can really rip on these. I'd really like to think that I could get these over 300' without much of a problem.

Well, I got two "max weight" yetis the other day. One turned out to be 174 and the other 177 on my scale. I threw the 177 in the back yard and it was just like throwing my early 12x kc pro aviars that are beat to shiz. Maybe a little less glide. I will keep using mine for "sure" putts because I love the grip, but if I hit low or high on a flat surface on a long putt the disc hits the ground on its edge and rolls a few feet nearly every time. I almost lost it down a 40 foot very shallow slope into the creek at a friends private 3 tee "course". One other thing I noticed, this disc simply has no fade if you get it off flat. It sort of reminds me of a turd slow mako.

I hear you about the fade, I played another 18 hole round today in some mild wind. Some holes weren't all that windy because of tree protection and elevation differences. I do notice that you have to put some hyzer if you want any chance of them fading back as they're pretty straight. I'm still digging the disc and giving it a fair shot as I continue to throw with them more often than all my other discs. It was interesting trying to figure out nose and hyzer angles along with height in the wind today.

Just bought 2 for putting and 1 to try out for driving. I am a big Challenger fan, so I am interested to see if these can replace my 4 year old Challengers for my primary putting duties.
