Vibram and MVP have putt and approach discs that people rave about, but are very new in the driver business. Latitude 64 has some of the very best drivers, but I rarely ever see players using their putters. Innova and Discraft, well they just have everything.
The question for today is, which disc brand makes the best putters?
Using the ratings from infinitediscs.com, I averaged ratings of all the different putters reviewed on the site by each manufacturer. To determine the “best putter maker,” I only included those brands that had at least 15 different putter reviews, and only included discs with at least two different ratings. Only the most popular discs and manufacturers were included in this project.
The study showed that the highest rated putt and approach discs are made by MVP, Gateway, and Vibram. And while Innova and Discraft by far have the most putters that were reviewed, lots of these discs have low ratings.
Here are the overall rankings and scores. Discs were rated between 1 and 5 with 5 being “must haves.”
From reading the different comments made by the website reviewers, It seems that the high ratings for MVP and Vibram come primarily from these discs superior approach and driving abilities. On the other hand, Gateway putters also had many comments about how well they “stuck to the chains.” While determining the best putter will always be debatable, I think it’s safe to say that Gateway makes some very good putters.
