Default Low profile driving putters

Currently I use a Yikun Wings off the tee and for longer upshots. Yikun calls it a mid range but it is a speed 3 which most companies would call a putter. It works pretty well for me but the plastic kinda sucks. The obvious thing to do would be get the Salient version but I am kinda wondering what else is out there. The two other putters I was thinking about trying were the Harp and the Breaker.

Anything else I should try?

I'd really like something low profile in premium plastic and that is fairly straight with a little fade at the end so not something crazy overstable like a Zone.

Double ditto. I never thought another driving putter would knock Wizards out of my bag but the Envy is just so money.

The Envy is THE disc for your request. Pick one up and enjoy. To me, the Envy is a shining example of a "short range driver". I can't putt with them but I can throw the hell out of them.

If you want something that has a ton of turn resistance but little fade, pick up a 165g Neutron

They pair nicely with a max weight Soft Neutron/Plasma for added fade shots

Envy for slightly OS/stable mold that does work.
Proxy for straightest faster putter mold in DG.

I just started throwing an OPTO PURE. It is basically THE driving putter I've been looking for, sneaky long, very straight, and at max weight, its very stable, mild fade. Another great mention is the MVP ATOM. I recommend max weight in the Firm plastic (not soft) basically the same flight as the pure but with maybe a little more aerodynamics, so a touch faster, touch less glide, but still laser straight and low profile and comfortable.

I wouldn't really call the Envy "low profile."

First things that come to mind for me are the DGA Breaker and Gateway Chief.

Chief OS if and when it comes out in evo.

The Breaker is an awesome disc. Flies between the zone and challenger for me. The envy I can take it or r leave it, I just don't dig the mvp plastics for this slot.

The Stud may be promising as well, and will come out in a myraid of Innova plastics. That is a disc I am waiting to try for this slot.

Agree that the Proxy is extremely straight, "point and shoot" approach/long putter. The Colt is also laser-straight for me and I bag it, but I take one or the other of my two Proxys out from time to time and get great results.

The Opto Pure is proving to be the best driving putter to me. I don't know if you'd call it "low profile" like the Colt and Proxy are, but the Pure gets crazy distance for a driving putter (and that comes from the noodle-armed one, me).

Putting it all together, the Colt is the best low-profile putter/approach disc for me. I'm waiting to get its brother, the Innova Stud, which reportedly has a low profile also. If the Stud is as good as the Colt, then I'll be happy to have that 1-2 punch in my bag.

I was kinda thinking the same thing. Isn't it the same height as an Aviar? 2.0cm?

The Wings is 1.5cm.
