Have you considered picking up a current run DX banshee in the same weight you throw zelles? See what you think after a few tree whacks or some road rash. Then you could throw in a champ banshee and...

I have some softs that are more flexible than SS in the suregrip plastic. The stiffest wizards I have held have been softs and organics. Again, all over the map... but that's why we love them, right?...

I prefer OS putters not due to the flightpath but because of the physical dimensions. More shallow and beaded! Plus they don't blow past very far... :gross::doh::cool:

For what it's worth, I own a star valk and a G-line saint at the same weight (168) and get more turn out of the saint. That being said, the saint dumps much harder at the end of its flight.

DX cobras around 160ish - very shallow rim and would be a better putter than stingrays.

I would say sharks but I feel like you can get a better frisbee flight from cobras. I would say comets too...

Oh wait, "won't fade far or go long?" I retract my last post, max weight flat champ rhyno is the answer. If you can't find a flat one, grab a production run and flat top it with boiling water and a...

I don't know if OP has tried a champ rhyno, but I just wanted to point out that it is NOT the answer. Very slow (very slow) but not very OS. They really don't have much right to left action when...
