12 best disc golf putters to try today!


It's no secret that putting is a vital aspect of your game and can make a huge difference in whether you throw over or under par.


Because putting is so crucial to success, its important to have a putter that is:


Comfortable, Reliable, and Durable


Without any of these qualities, your putting ability will be less than desired and you will struggle to take your game to the next level.


Choosing a putter that works for you can sometimes be quite the process, which is why we suggest trying several different molds, in several different plastics until you find what you like to attain those 3 characteristics.


This list is to help give you a head start in finding your putter as it includes classic favorites from both professional and amateur players alike!


It's important to note that as you might expect, not all putters are created equal.


Some are used strictly for putting, some are used for approach shots and even tee offs, and some can be used for both. To gain some clarity on the different this topic, "How to Choose a Disc Golf Putter" will help you out!


While every player is going to look for something different in what they want for a putter. When you do find what you like, it's time to put in the practice and really hone your skills!

Flight Ratings: 2.0, 4.0, 0.0, 1.0


The Judge is an extremely popular driving putter thanks to it's stable flight pattern and maintaining the line its thrown on. So popular that it is actually one of Dynamic Discs best selling discs of all time, being a fan favorite almost from the time it was released.


Part of this popularity is from being included in many starter packs but it remains a viable option for players of all skills due to how well it performs.


Brandon especially loves how straight this disc flies at longer distances with little turn or fade depending on the line its thrown.


It feels great in the hand as the medium depth is very comfortable.

All plastics are great for this disc but softer ones should be used for putting while firmer plastics such as the Lucid blend should be used to helped with durability when used on approach shots.


The Judge is one of those discs where even if you end up not liking it, its worth at least checking out!



Flight Ratings: 2.0, 3.0, 0.0, 1.0


The Aviar is arguably the most popular and most utilized disc of all time.


This is primarily due to the fact that it is an excellent disc for beginners to learn with, but because it flies so dead straight with just a hint of turn at the end, experienced players will continue to find room in their bag for it.


Because it flies so straight and accurately, players commonly describe this disc as a "point and shoot". Meaning wherever you put this disc, that's where it will go with little variance in its flight path.


It can be used for both putt and approach shots and I personally have used this disc for both with success.


The Aviar is available in all blends and in several weights, making it possible for any player to find one that will suit their needs.



Flight Ratings: 3.9, 3.0, 0.0, 3.0


The Zone is such a great disc that it is considered a must bag disc for many players, except for ones who are sponsored by brands besides Discraft.


This overstable putter will reliably fade on both back hand and forehand shots alike.


Because it is so overstable with decent speed, it makes for an excellent choice for forehand approach shots as well as throws into a strong head wind when a straight flight path is desired, and these shots are typically what players bag one for.


If you don't have one already, this is a disc that you will immediately find a place for in your bag, it's just that good.



Flight Ratings: 3.0, 3.0, 0.0, 2.0


While not quite as overstable as the Zone, and with a little bit less speed, the PA-1 is also an excellent choice as an overstable putt and approach putter to find a home for in your bag.


Most players tend to use it as a putting putter, especially as it beats in, but the overstability and glide allows it be an excellent driving putter. Especially into headwinds and for shots less than 250-300 ft.


The disc is great for putting into headwinds, as it will fight the urge to turn over and maintain that reliable yet subtle finish at the end of it's flight.


Flight Ratings: 3.0, 4.0, -1.5, 0.0


This understable putter is the perfect putting putter for any player, but especially beginners.


New players will often times putt to the left side of the basket, especially on longer putts outside of the circle. The understable tendencies of this putter will help pull those shots back to the center and prevent more misses and bounces off the cage.


The Deputy is a little more shallow than many putters which helps with achieving a comfortable grip and the soft plastics options are excellent. Very grippy but not too tacky!




Flight Ratings: 3.0, 3.1, -0.1, 2.3


Next we move onto a fairly popular option from Discraft, the Luna.


The Luna is the go to Putter for top ranked player Paul McBeth, which doesn't come as a huge surprise as the flight numbers are very similar to the putter he used when sponsored by Innova, the Aviar X.


This putter is bit more overstable than what many players typically use as a putting putter but this plays into effect primarily on longer putts.


Otherwise, it is an extremely reliable and consistent putter, which is why it is so popular among disc golfers.



Flight Ratings: 2.0, 3.0, 0.0, 2.0


If you really like the Aviar but are looking for something just a bit more stable, then the KC Aviar is just what you need!


It will still fly very straight with good speed and glide for putting, but with a noticeable more amount of fade at the end of its flight!


The KC was designed for 12 time world champ Ken Climo and is the current go to putting putter for Ricky Wysocki.



Flight Ratings: 2.1, 3.9, -0.3, 1.0


If you feel that Luna is just a bit too stable for your liking, then look no further than the Roach.


Discraft enthusiasts love the feel of the Roach and its ability to maintain a straight flight and reliable fade into the chains. When comparing to other brands, this disc is very similar to the Innova Aviar.


Many players fall in love with the Roach as a beginner and continue to bag it due to it's desirable flight characteristics with the Jawbreaker plastic being a fan favorite.



Flight Ratings: 3.0, 2.0, 0.0, 2.0


The Slammer is an overstable approach disc that can truly be a vital aspect to your bag.


It really shines when used for forehand approach shots where you need to have less speed and glide, but still the necessary overstability. Especially when coming into the landing zone around the basket.

The flat topped profile will cut through the wind with ease and if picked up in a softer plastic will stick really well to the ground when landing, rather than skipping away.


The soft plastic also absorbs tree hits well on approach shots, but will also cause the disc to break in more quickly.


Because this disc is overstable, it can also be used for putting into the wind for some added versatility.

Flight Ratings: 3.0, 1.0, 0.0, 3.0


If you close your eyes and think of a pig flying, then you can imagine exactly how this disc performs when thrown.


It's slow, with little glide, and very overstable.


It may not be the best putting putter out there, although it can be used as such, but it makes for an excellent approach putter, which is why (previously) Innova sponsored player Ricky Wysocki bagged several of these for his game.


Because it is slow you will achieve very nice lay ups to the basket with little skipping, and the very low glide rating makes it very hard to over power this disc on longer throws.



Flight Ratings: 3.0, 3.2, -0.5, 0.6


A very versatile disc, the Pure is bagged by many players to cover all aspects of the putting game. With near equal amounts of turn and fade, both ratings can be used to your advantage depending on the shot you're facing.


For longer shots, the Pure will fly extremely straight with just some slight fade but can be reliably thrown on any line. The increased glide will help with distance when used off the tee pad but will also help you nail those longer putts when needed.


Throw in the fact that you can use this disc as a dedicated putter inside the circle and you have yourself a disc worth bagging!



Flight Ratings: 2.0, 3.0, 0.0, 1.0


A very reliable disc, the Link is very similar to the popular Aviar and has identical flight ratings, but has just a bit more fade at the end of its flight.


Players are extremely pleased with how it feels in the hand and the accuracy they can achieve with this disc.


Because of it's stability, this disc will go where ever you throw it and hold that line very well when used for approach shots, but it really shines when used as a putting putter.



And there you have it! Our list of the 12 best putters we feel are on the market today!
