When it comes to highest rated putters, the new MVP discs are very popular. Gateway also offers some putters that rank in our top six, and Innova and Discraft each have just one overstable putter that are highly rated.

Feedback & Reviews on the Innova Rhyno:



[quote][one_half]I ditched my Ions and Anodes for the rhyno, I have SE’s and you just can’t deny what they do in the wind! I straddle putt with plenty if zip on them and they really hold the line.

– Cam

[/one_half][one_half_last]This is my putter of choice, it has made my anhyzer putt skill really come up from the ashes!As an overstable putter yet it is still a disc to be counted on. I also use it as a approach shot disc where my mid range might be to much for.

Feedback & Reviews on the MVP Ion:



[quote][one_half]The Proton (not soft) is very stiff. This putter is probably best for driving or longer putts. Has a tendency to roll when hitting the ground. Best wind putter (for putting, not driving) I have ever used; fights a headwind like a champ. Many players can throw Ions a long way and serve more as a midrange than a putter.

– Jason

[/one_half][one_half_last]Ion takes over when I need to anhyzer around something on a putt or approach. This disc is perfect for me for the 75′ and out go for it situations. Nice dependable flight and stability with the small beaded rim.

Feedback & Reviews on the Discraft Zone:



[quote][one_half]The zone is the most overstable putter by Discraft. It has a consistant and predictable fade. This is not a disc for begginers. I find this disc very useful in wooded courses and for my second shot approache, ESPECIALLY when there is wind! In my experience this disc will skip when landing, so if you need that extra skip towards the basket, this is a gread disc for that purpose! I highly reccomend this disc, it will get a lot of use!

– Derek

[/one_half][one_half_last]This disc is very predictable and very comfortable in the hand. It has more of a midrange feel to it than a putter. I like using it for approach shots and holes 300′ or under that require a lot of hyzer. I also throw forehand anny flips with this disc to get out of trouble, which has saved me many times.

Feedback & Reviews on the Gateway Magic:



[quote][one_half]I own 7… If that’s not a testament enough I will explain more. This disc is everything you want in an understable putter. Not so understable though that it won’t hold a line. And like every gateway disc you can get it in exactly the grip you want it in.

– Joshua

[/one_half][one_half_last]Excellent understable putter. Little wrist, and it will go dead straight 40 feet. It is Gateway, so you can get whatever plastic feel you want. Not a great driving putter, but can be used for short anhyzers. Only disc I putt with.

– Jason

Feedback & Reviews on the Gateway Wizard:



[quote][one_half]The Wizard is one of (if not THE) top-rated putter because it does everything a putter should do. Flies straight, sticks to chains, doesn’t skip and doesn’t roll away.

– Andrew

[/one_half][one_half_last]I carry 3 at all times in various grades and degradations. I prefer the “eraser” feel of the ss and SSS plastic since I play in wind and rain a lot. The Wizard and Warlock are responsible for about -2 on my overall score since I adopted it. It just does what I tell it to every time. I put in a “fencer” stance with a lot of oomph…

– Rakoz

Feedback & Reviews on the MVP Anode:



[quote][one_half]As a beginner I can tell you that this disc has a solid spot in my bag, but not as my go to putter. I actually use this more on upshots and putts outside my normal circle. It flies really straight and ends up right where you put it. I don’t drive putters yet, but I hear it is the cats pajamas for that.

– Jumbo

[/one_half][one_half_last]I went out with two putters, my old reliable Aviar that I know and love and this bad boy. Every time I needed to putt, the Anode came out and it never disappointed. Sorry Aviar, you now take the back seat.

– Kirk

  • The anode is a nice straight approach disc and putter. I have a soft eclipse, and its soft enough that I can fold it in half. It feels great in the hand and is my go to for hyzer or anhyzer approaches as it holds its line beautifully. Its only not my go to putter for putting because I also have an ion!

  • there is one set of putter missing for the list above and the putters i am talking about are made by vibram. the vp has replaced the rhinos and pigs in my bag and the sole has ousted the wizards. great putters with great grip and are the toughest disc on the planet… have not yet tried the ridge or the summit but will be trying those out soon. i also have been impressed with the mvp ion and carry one in my bag as well.
