I'll second the Aviar3 suggestion. It's a speed 3 so lower profile but similar rim to a P2 or Aviar. I used to throw Envys but I like the Aviar3 better. It powers down well, but I can also smash on it and put it on a frozen rope.

If you like the bead and want to stick to a speed 2, then yeah, just throw a JK or Wizard. I love the way the JK flies (my gf uses one and we play catch with it) but I prefer no bead.

I had this same fear until I tried them, but honestly they don't get much gummier in the summer. I was putting and throwing JKs this past season and I love them. They start off a bit OS, have a ton of glide, and beat into hold any line you want to put them on. As they beat in they don't turn into floppy messes either. Glow JKs (both JCs and standard glow) are a hair softer at first whereas the stock stamps are a bit stiffer, IME. I highly recommend trying one if you want a slightly OS throwing putter in a grippy plastic.

My James Conrad JK Aviar and S-Line P2 cover this shot nicely for me. Next step in stability would be the aforementioned Envy; and from there would be your zones, pigs, harps, etc.

Surprised I'm not seeing more recs for the Envy.

What didn't you like about the feel of the KC? Bead? Depth? Rim?

The envy is beadless, and shallower than the KC aviar. It will fly similar lines but has a bit more speed and a touch less glide. Both are fantastic discs.

P3x has an amazing hand feel and an OS flight. Very flat top and a comfortable bead. D line beats in to become very straight

Late to the party but as people have mentioned, the Envy is amazing. Gets the vast majority of my putter throws, both off the tee and for approaches.

JK Aviar and 300 pa1 would be a good start

Big Bead Aviar Driver is available in other plastics, too, beyond JK (my putting putter) and KC (didn’t like the feel, either). I love them in Star.

But if you don’t like that stiff of a plastic Disc Golf Center has G-Star along with two Tour Series options. I can’t speak for the stiffness of the tour series options but G-Star might be to your liking.
