The Sonic is THE most fade resistant disc out there, thus, this should be your go to if you don’t want fade. While most disc golf putters are fairly similar, the Sonic is not.
This is a unique disc that is easy to throw. It has a grooved edge around the rim that provides a superb thumb grip. This putter is a slow flyer that seems to float in the air. A light flick can send this disc into the basket for a thirty foot put. For those who are transitioning from traditional frisbee and enjoy the tall/thin rim, this is probably your best choice for introductory disc!
If you’re looking for the best disc golf putter for new players, don’t look past the Latitude 64 Ruby. This disc is in the Latitude 64 “easy to use” line. The Ruby accurate as well as a great approach disc, making it ideal for beginners. As an understable putter, this disc allows newer players to conquer the frustrations given with low speed fade.
Improve your short game with The Upshot. This putter disc has absolutely minimal fade to aid you in landing near the basket on approach shots, and in the chains from putts. This disc also floats in water and is inexpensive.
The aptly named Putt’r is a slightly understable disc, perfect for short approach shots and putts. Discraft gives the Putt’r a stability rating of 0. This disc holds anhyzer lines well, and does a good job of slicing when you need to weave around an anhyzer side of a target. Some disc golfers consider this the best putter.
The Putt’r is available in Discraft’s mid-grade Elite X plastic. This plastic blend is strong enough to last a life time of putts, but inexpensive enough that anyone can afford it.
Vibram makes great putters, and the Summit is no exception. Unlike the Ridge and V.P., the Summit is an understable putter that possesses more turn than fade. If you threw the Summit at 40 miles per hour with a backhand throw, it would turn to the right 12 degrees and then fade back to the left 5 degrees. For the average golfer, this is a straight-flying disc that has very little fade et the end of it’s flight. The Summit is a great putter disc for beginners.
This disc is no longer available.
