Zones are pretty beefy for putting but they do make D Zones that would work better for that. Breaker, Ringer and Sinus are all honorable mentions.

Suspect fills that role in my bag - not really a putter, but nearly as slow as one.

Well I got a D Zone, and WOW. So far it seems exactly like what I was looking for.

Haven't had a chance to try it in really windy conditions yet, but I'm already loving it for those shots where you need to keep it on a low straight line and then do a hard fade around an object. Assuming it holds up as well in the wind as it seems like it will, this is definitely staying in my bag.

Now I just hope the D plastic doesn't lose that overstability too quickly...

Been playing a lot more and the D Zone has been used way more than expected. Love love love this disc. When there's a decent amount of wind, I basically use it exclusively for putts and approaches. Perfect amount of overstability, so reliable.

Also picked up an ESP Zone, but that's silly overstable. I've come to the conclusion that it overlaps with my Z Wasp and taken it out of the bag.

This far in and no one has mentioned the Envy?

Well let me be the first. Great disc. Not nearly as OS as a Zone or even a Pig, but has decent fade to it. Will fade into a headwind when new. I recommend Proton, holds up just a little bit better than Neutron, but you can't go wrong either way. More OS than the Pure for sure, but still workable. Will pull out of all but the steepest of annys when given enough height. Great for forehands as well

axiom envies are fine but westside harps are immaculate. i bag both and threw both into 35+ headwinds. the harp held up 100% and the envy turned and burned.

pure, envy, and zone are all you need to cover all your putter throwing

I ended up adding JOKERi to compliment my Pures because of the similar feel in hand (and they're easy to get here). Have tried suspect and zone but they felt more like mids, nice discs though.

I am hoping to beat my lighter envy into pure stability.
And then it will just be
Envy, Envy, Zone
