Low profile stable-understable putter.

Postby chickenonabun » Sat Jun 23, 2012 8:07 pm

So I am losing hope about my driving with wizards, sometimes I can throw them great, but sometimes every throw the catch on my fingers causing massive OAT and turn n' burn. I have smaller than average hands. So I am looking for a low profile putter that is good for driving, that has a bit of smooth turn but isn't really flippy. I don't really care if it's domey or flat, and would prefer the slower putter speed (like wizard/KC aviar speed). I just got a zone for driving, and love the feel, I just want that similar feel in a less stable disc.

I've heard maybe the pure or magic can fit this role? Any other suggestions? thanks a lot in advance for helping me.

Zero Pure.

Low profile makes the putters fast by design, so there aren't many that are both slow and low. The Zone is a good example of this, it's almost as fast as a mid range.

Try an R-Pro or DX XD. Very low profile for a putter to me. There is also a Champion XD Plus Mold.

I use the magic for that. It is low profile and beadless. It is however understable. I can throw it on a nice hyzer angle and it will still turn a little bit and keep that slow turn until it hits the grounds. In a headwind, I can't put much power on it or else it will burn on me (it does produce some nice roller though haha).

I'm having good luck with the Legacy Clutch which has a slightly smaller rim depth...if you try one, make sure you get one of the rigid chalky-feeling protege versions (not the waxy).

I've also been itching to try the Pure, but I'm afraid I will like it too much. Of course, Lat64 is not always good at consistency, which is maybe the only thing that keeps me from trying them...

one of the reasons I dropped the Wizard was the deep grip. I too would catch the rim with my fingertips on drives. and plus I had to destroy one before it would do turnover lines. the Pure does what I want and grips more like a midrange.

I was at the store today and saw a DX XD+ (plus mold), WTMF is that all about?

Thanks everyone for the replies, It looks like I will get an opto and eze pure and maybe a magic sometime soon and maybe also an XD. I felt a clutch at a tourney yesterday, but they didn't feel very low profile to me...

Out of these suggestions the Classic Roc is the slowest and it has a closer feel to the Wiz than the rest. Opto Pure is effin sweet! But given power it tends to bullet straight for a long time no matter what the angle is. Pushing through hyzer and anhyzer equally much. Well pretty much slightly less pushing hyzered but the difference is small.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I have tried the XD, Classic Roc, Hammer, Breeze and Pure. I think the Pure in the Zero Line is a great suggestion. The Opto Pure that I tried had just a touch too much stability for the straight to understable slot. The ZL version was just a touch understable. Great driving putter.

I'm surprised no one mentioned the vibram summit. Nice feeling lower profile.

If you're just looking for a stable putter without a beaded feel like the wizard, then check out the voodoo, challenger, and discmania P2. All of them are fairly stable and don't have the big bead.

nah, it's substantially smaller...the focus has the big bead like the wizard. The challenger is closer to a small beaded aviar.
