I've been putting with the Judge for years, but is there anything out there similar but with slightly smaller bead and a little less depth?

Try the Marshal. Smaller bead for sure. Slightly but only slightly less depth. I went from the Judge and Warden to the Marshal, and have never regretted doing that.

I am a firm believer that ergonomics is more important for a putting putter than the stability/glide of said putter.

Learn what feels good and releases clean out of your hand. Unless the disc has AI on board and its own propulsion source, your putting will always be poor if the release isn't clean.

This is true for most discs, some the glide makes a difference.
However, some discs are too awkward for most to use. Example: The Putt'r as production Soft X only is a problem as soft flex plastic does not work for a lid disc. That mold gets slight concave when broken in just that first little bit of 25-35 putts and loses the the glide it had making the mold bad for most as a Putt'r can take more speed to the mold compared to other lids due to how the rim/wing is shaped with the thicker bottom then top of the rim/wing. So then the Putt'r either flops right to the ground just short of basket or goes sailing past, very little room for error with the mold needing this exact distance to mach the speed of the mold. I think the amount of glide on a putting disc is important as if that is off to how the player putts then the mold will not work for them either dropping too soon or going past the basket.

Also how the disc feels is important, just becuse everyone uses that mold does not mean you should if you do not like how say ___ disc feels then don't use them if everyone in your area is using one of those molds for putting putter.

Long time Warden guy here. This spring I made the jump to the Streamline Pilot.

Pros: It's high glide of 5 really helps me sink those longer putts. The Electron plastic is ideal for grip, and smooth releases. It feels great in the hand. The Proton plastic is more over stable and is ideal for putting, approaches and even driving.

Cons: The Electron plastic gets beat up very quickly. As a result, I use a Pure Zero Soft for short putts to reduce the wear on the Electron Pilots. The Proton plastic is a little too tacky when humid or wet conditions exist.

I plan on getting some new Electrons and adding a glow Proton model soon. Can't say enough about the Pilot !!!

Warden:
Diameter: 21.2 cm
Height: 2.0 cm
Rim Depth: 1.5 cm
Rim Width: 1.1 cm

Marshall:
Diameter: 21.2 cm
Height: 2.0 cm
Rim Depth: 1.6 cm
Rim Width: 1.1 cm

Judge:
Diameter: 21.2 cm
Height: 2.0 cm
Rim Depth: 1.5 cm
Rim Width: 1.1 cm

According to infinite discs the marshall is actually slightly deeper. Maybe a smaller bead makes it feel smaller in the hand though.

Pilot:
Diameter: 21.2 cm
Height: 1.8 cm
Rim Depth: 1.3 cm
Rim Width: 1.0 cm

Pilot looks quite a bit smaller though. My tiny little hands might appreciate that. Would electric firm be the most like a P-line/classic hard plastic?

Electron firm is definitely what you want.

I'm getting old; I don't really notice 1mm differences. Having said that, try to find and hold a Marshal in your paws and see how it feels. If you don't like it, cool beans.

Yeah I don't blame you. But it probably does feel less deep if its got a smaller bead.
