Default Need help with a putter (get new mold or stick with current)

Alright so here is the predicament. For the the last eight years I have been playing with one putter. That putter is the Aerobie Sharpshooter #3. This was one of the first two discs I ever bought, so I guess out of loyalty I have stuck with it. I lost it a few years back and got a new one but it is getting pretty beat in. I really like the way it feels and I haven't found a putter that feels like it. So if anyone knows a putter with the same feel(mold style) and close to the same flight pattern, that would help. Thank you.

wow, that thing has got to be super overstable with that wing. i couldnt tell you any putter that i know of with a wing like that. maybe somebody else would know. the closest thing would be a zone in stability terms but it wont feel like that.

putting is a super personal thing so there really is no right answer to what you should putt with but honestly i'd think about going with something a bit less stable. how do you putt?

Yeah I agree on the personal stuff. I really like the feel, super flat and rigid. The stability is ok for me only because I tend to hyzer put anyways... how much does anyone know about a Rhyno...

Rhyno would be your best options out of those but it wont feel like your previous putter. the pig is just to overstable and glideless to be a solid putter, same with the gator.

a lot of people putt with rhynos so i'd check that out.

Do you not want to replace it with a new Sharpshooter?

Yea. I'm just thinking it's gonna be prettty much impossible to find a disc with that feel, because of those ridges on the rim.
