The disc golf world has seen some incredible discs over the years. Players have gone from throwing literal frisbees to some of the sleekest, most beautifully-made discs imaginable.
Even disc golf putters are made to be absolutely stunning works of art. Then we buy ‘em and bang ‘em into every tree that we can find in front of us.
But as we progress in our disc golf game, we’re still going to need discs that help us take our skill to another level. First things first, you need a few awesome disc golf putters in your bag. So I’ve brought you an all-star lineup in this post.
The discs that I’ve put in this list are the best disc golf putters of all-time, hands down. Though some might debate one or two of these discs, the consensus is that these discs are the most popular, most highly-reviewed, most bagged, and most purchased putters in the game today.
In this post, we’re going to look at 3 things:
- How I chose the discs for this list.
- Why you need some (or all) of the discs on this list and…
- The 7 best disc golf putters of all-time.
Alright, let’s get to it!
How I chose these discs
1. My own disc golf experience: I’ve put over 6 years of experience into this website, playing with some of the best disc golf products and reviewing a lot of equipment over the years. So my own experience has gone into this list and which discs are on it.
2. Reviews: I’ve also taken a look at a bunch of discs and the reviews that they’ve gotten online. InfiniteDiscs.com is one of the main sites that I use to see reviews of different disc golf discs. These can be very helpful for actually choosing certain discs. The discs on this list have A LOT of very good ratings and reviews.
3. Disc golf community popularity: while reviews can help, it is also good to hear what different players are actually saying about discs. Some include reviews on various disc golf blogs and posts on disc golf forums. Discgolfscene.com and Reddit’s r/discgolf subreddit group can be awesome when researching different discs. So the discs on this list also reflect their insane popularity amongst numerous disc golfers in the local disc golf community.
Why you need the discs on this list
1. They’re tried and true: the discs on this list have been out for years and have been tested by thousands of disc golfers. They’re discs that will straight up do the job on the course.
2. They can help you improve: the discs on this list have helped all of those disc golfers improve their game and take their putting skill to a whole new level.
3. They are hands down the best discs in their category: there isn’t much more I can say about them. These are the best disc golf putters in the game today. I wouldn’t just get 1 or 2 of them off this list. I’d get all of them. And I personally have, or have played with, all of the discs on this list. So let’s check ‘em all out!
The 7 best disc golf putters of all-time
The Dynamic Discs Judge is hands down my favorite disc golf putter. I’ve been playing with this disc for years and it has never let me down. This is also one of the first putters I got when I started playing disc golf.
With flight ratings of 2, 4, 0, 1, the Judge is an incredibly easy disc to throw and approach with. It’s a very sturdy disc, but doesn’t hold up all that well with trees. Still great, though, through the air.
As for putting, the grip of the plastic is perfect for grabbing the chains and heading into the basket. I like a more firm top, with well rounded lip on my putters so the Judge feels great during each and every use. For me, this is normally my go-to putter. I don’t really throw it that much, unless I’m approaching from a short distance.
The Judge is highly predictable in flight, a fantastic throwing putter, and highly capable of incredible distance due to its insane glide. It feels good, looks good, and flies extremely well for a standard putt and approach disc. Although it’s predictable, the results it can give you are truly phenomenal. But I’ll let you be the “judge” of that. I highly recommend this disc.

The Wizard is an interesting and highly-underrated disc golf disc. What I learned as I researched the Wizard was that A LOT of disc golfers bag and play with this disc. It’s weird because I hadn’t heard much of anything about it for years. But once I bought one and started playing with it, I found out why people liked the Wizard.
It reminded me a lot of the Judge. But it’s probably not that popular just because of the company that makes it. Gateway has been around for awhile, but they aren’t as popular as Dynamic Discs or Discraft. That doesn’t matter, though, because the Wizard is an awesome putter.
With flight ratings of 2, 3, 0, 2, the Wizard is a bit overstable, but can be your true workhorse putt and approach disc. It’s going to hold your lines well and won’t fade on you too much at the end. Gateway also states that the Wizard is perfect for windy rounds and decent players with controlled power.

The Aviar once reigned supreme as the most popular disc golf putter in the world. But has since been surpassed by at least the top 2 discs on this list. However, you’ve still got thousands of players who are loyal to the Aviar. Because it is a great disc. I personally don’t carry an Aviar or throw any because I don’t like how they feel. But the rounds I’ve played with them have gone just as well as my other rounds without them. So I won’t knock it too much. The Aviar’s flight ratings come in at 3, 2.5, 0, 1.
This disc is a stable straight flyer with very little fade on the back end. It flies pretty well and is always hungry for chains. The Aviar is excellent because of its versatility, dependability, and predictable flight on every throw.

Man, I LOVE the Harp. I’ve bagged this disc ever since I bought it a year or two into playing. It wasn’t my first putter, but it’s definitely become one of my all-time favorites. It has a unique rim that I’m very fond of along with a completely flat top. Both of those make the Harp display a unique shape, which I feel gives it a personal signature among other similar discs.
I would compare this to the Discraft Zone or Dynamic Discs Truth mid-range, but with better, more consistent flight and more predictable ending fade. It will usually hold your lines, unless you put it on a straight, flat line. With that, you’ll get just a touch of fade at the end of flight.
So whether you need a putter for throwing or putting, the Harp can be that disc for you. Another very highly recommended disc golf putter and truly one of the best in the game. Flight ratings of 4, 3, 0, 3.

The Zone is one of Discraft’s most popular discs of all-time. And for good reason, too. It’s a really fun, stable to overstable putter with tremendous potential all over the disc golf course. It might be a little farther down on my list, but it’s one of the most popular putters in all of disc golf right now. Especially with Discraft’s newer plastics.
However, I don’t like the Zone as much as some of the discs on this list but it’s still a great disc. Its overstability makes this disc one of the better forehand discs if you’d like to learn forehand (or you just need a forehand approach disc).
As for feel, it’s similar to the Harp. Slim putter with a flat top and a thick rim. Great for grabbing chains or grabbing distance anywhere on the course. Flight ratings of 4, 3, 0, 3.

The Envy is a super fun disc to putt with AND to throw with. If you can remember back to the 2021 Disc Golf Pro World Championships, the Envy is the disc James Conrad used to sink the holy shot and keep his dream of a world championship alive. He then went on to a tiebreaker with Paul McBeth and ended up winning the Worlds. That was a crazy disc golf moment and completely unexpected. But the Envy came through for Conrad to solidify its spot in the history books – and dare I say – on this list as well.
As for the disc itself, it’s thicker and beefier than the last 2 discs. More along the lines of a Judge or a Wizard. With flight ratings of 3, 3, 0, 2, the Envy is easy to throw and mostly predictable in flight. But it might give you little bit of fade before it catches the chains!

Man, I love the Infinite Discs Tomb. This disc feels fantastic and throws even better. I’ve been bagging it for a couple of years now and I can tell you that this disc is not only awesome, but deserves to be on this list. Flight ratings of 3, 4, 0, 1 make this disc fairly easy to throw with almost no fade.
Here’s what Infinite Discs has to say about the Tomb: “The TOMB is a flat-topped, low-profile, putt-and-approach disc with a comfortably smooth, beaded rim. The Tomb has just the right amount of stability to cover ground while threading the needle on approach shots, whether thrown forehand or backhand. It can also be used as a crossover mid-range, driving putter, or to hold the line while putting for distance or in moderate winds.”
