What is in my bag right now. I'm pretty set when it comes to mids and putters. Still trying to figure out what driver(s) work best for me.

How is the Spike as a putter?
Do you drive with it? How's it do for that?

I love the spike as a putter. It's basically a straight disc with a touch of fade at the end, the zeroline plastic is so soft and grippy it's awesome. If you've thrown the Sinus, it's about half as tall as the Sinus with 2 grip zones instead of the Sinus' 3. The best difference is that with the Sinus I always felt like I had to fight to keep it straight. The Spike isn't like that at all. The zeroline plastic is like soft DX but with a bit more structural integrity. I generally don't use it for distance, however a few weeks ago I was throwing some field practice <getting throwing lessons from Steve Rico is somewhat useful> and I managed to thow the Spike about 285 or so dead straight with a bit of height, so it is driveable.

meh...I don't really like soft putters. Soft Wizards are almost too soft for me for putting.
Thanks for the info though.

Way too heavy. I've got another Star Tabby (grey/black) that flies well.

You may need a Star Tabby-L. I didn't know color affect the Tabby's flight that much...
