JR wrote:Welcome. What is your preferred style and hand and finger size? The larger the hand the taller the putter can be. Rhynos are low glide power hungry discs that force you to putt hard at longer range and since they have a hefty fade they move a lot sideways too at longer ranges. That is why a more gliding (lower power requirement thus less punching=more consistency) putter that fades less for less estimation need for sideways action helps. Also a degree or two of anny in the grip can help too. For a straight disc when there is warmth and it is dry the Ion and Anode can be hard to beat except with a very tall Rattler. Rattlers have some semi tacky ones among them. For a little less glide but great tackiness for adverse weather Vibram Sole i recommend X Link medium material.

Get your footing, every time you step up to your put get your footing set. that is where all your power comes from is a stable base. Start short when you practice, don't start at your problem areas, in order to build your confidence you need to start short hit all those 5-10 footers, then move back to 10-15 footers. Make sure you remember how the good putts feel coming out of your hand. One thing that has really helped me with my putting is a line from a movie, The Patriot. Mel Gibson tells his sons to aim small, so that if you miss you miss small. There is a video that Eric McCabe did on putting, the McCabe minute, and he says he aims for one chain link, same concept.
As far as what putter you should use, that is entirely up to you. The questions you have to ask yourself are, what do I want to disc to do, do I want the disc to be straight, or finish into the basket? Do I want the float and glide, or do I want it to drop fast? The last of these questions should always be how does the disc feel? If the disc doesn't feel right in your hand you are going to doubt what you are about to do.
