That or a Bullfrog, a 1-2 in glide is unheard of and the disc mold will act like an approach putter. XT has changed, apparently I was not aware until sometime this year that it went from stiff to tad softer like late 2000's DX but still XT or 2000's DX like in grip without much wax to the mold if any. Odd that Innova is like that, but not surprising with the plastics that Innova makes.

I cannot imagine putting with an overstable putter. Zone? Bwahahaha. I would suck so badly.

Same, though use as an approach putter or driving putter maybe not.

I bag a Zone. And I putt with Rhynos. For much the same reason. Low glide, low profile. I prefer the Stiff Pro or good DX (flat top) Rhynos. I actually found several Ontario molded r-Pro that were 168-169g that are from the older preferred stiffer Pro. Also, the ones from the Factory Store are pretty good too.

Those are much deeper than a zone. They feel nothing alike.

You could try an Innova Rat? Supposed to by a Zone clone, but at speeds they are much more neutral. I'd guess that in circle 2 though, they would have the same dump as the Zone. Might be worth a try. That and a P3 by Discmania. Same wing as the Zone, but all the ones I've seen have more shoulder and dome. Could add some glide?

If you like the feel of the profile and of Jawbreaker () though, I say stick with it. As I understand it, they made it initially for MJ when he came over to Discraft, and he putted with them. Later they came out with the Ringer for him, and most recently the Ringer GT. Both of which, are very low profile putters, that I suggest you try. MJ doesn't have problems outside the circle with his. He has a flat to seemingly slight anny release to get the disc to fly straight:

Go to 2:13 to see the angle he putts at:

I thought MJ was always with Discraft? Did MJ switch from Discraft a one point?

Picked up in 2004. He used to putt Rhynos. Switched to Discraft for the 2008 season...and the Zone came out that year.

Wardens in that rubbery classic stuff aren't that deep, warlocks are deep but the shape is pretty similar to a zone imo.
