Learning to throw your putters with hyzer is going to help you the most. That being said, there are some good straight-to-fade throwing putters out there with a shallow rim. Axiom Envy, Westside Maiden, and Innova Stud all come to mind. Just realize that eventually, as your skills progress, you will likely come full circle and be in the market for a slower, deeper, approach disc.

Personally, I think you might like the Daredevil Discs Walrus. It's rated at 4/5/0/3. The Elastic Performance plastic is super bendy which means that the walrus hits the ground and absorbs the shock and dies on impact. It is a touch glidey-er than any zone, and the fade back is very similar to my jawbreaker zone (not as pronounced as my z-flx zone). Like most of the elastic performance discs (walrus, Ogopogo, woodchuck), it's best thrown at less than full power. That said, I know you're emphatic about "never turning right even on hard throws", and if that trumps the skip problem, then I'd say go with a z-flx zone. But if you want a nicely OS approach disc that pretty much dies on impact, you might like the walrus.

I'd HIGHLY recommend an MVP ATOM - Premium plastic for more stability - so Proton plastic or Neutron plastic . My 171-175g Proton/NEutron Atoms fly like 3.5/3/0/1 and are REALLY nice and straight but never turn over and have a lil fade but not a heavy fade. Also the Axiom Envy is always a good choice , but I prefer the Atoms

What grip are you using for these shots?
