Default Looking for a RHFH Approach Putter

A little back ground tho, I play Rec, rated 850. throw mainly forehand max out around 325 with firebird. I can throw backhand 420ish on a good day.

I am Looking for a RHFH Approach putter. Approaches 60-200ish feet.

I have recently tired the star Aviar3, but it was not as stable as I hoped.

I have ordered a Champ Blizzard Pig to try out and it will arrive this Friday.

I am curious to see other options.

I have looked at the Zone, AviarX3.

Let me know what would be good.

My first thought is the AviarX3. My second thought is the Harp.

Zone is my number one suggestion for this, and Harp is same type of stability. I prefer the feel of the Zone slightly. I throw similar range...Firebird will be 300'ish FH on a flat release, and BH in that 400' range with drivers. The Zone goes about 270' BH or FH for me with a flat release. I've never had it turn. I do throw my FH's clean though, and don't lean on the Firebird's stability for them.

Also the Envy is fantastic for straighter FH approaches, it is very HSS without as much beef as the Zone. If you have torque the Envy will not be as forgiving though, but with a clean release it is very good. Both the Envy and Zone have a very good FH hand feel for me.

For the Zone I have thrown a few ESP's, and they are the same stability as the premium Harps I have tried, premium being TP or VIP. If you go down to Jawbreaker in the Zone it is less overstable/more distance by a bit, and it sticks a little better when it hits the ground. I have never owned a Jawbreaker but I have thrown one a couple times, and that seems to be consistent with what people say. I have never owned Harps, but have seen the baseline Harps get very ugly "clover topped" after lots of use, I'm not sure if it's only in soft or hard or what the deal is, but seeing that was a turn off for me. The Z Zones I have tried were similar to ESP, but I prefer the grip of the ESP, and lots of others love Zones in ESP.

The ESP Zone and TP/VIP Harps will be overstable like a speed 3 Firebird, they will slowly pan out of a flex release and they will fight wind. They will have some movement on the ground if you flick them hard at shorter ranges, and don't let them dump fade from a litte height. If the Zone is too much for a shorter approach you can always FH your normal putters too to get a softer and slower landing.

As far as the Envy, I don't find much difference between MVP's premium plastics. I haven't thrown the softs vs. the normal side by side, but every Envy I have tried has flown great. The best comparison I could make is that the Zone is like a speed 3 Firebird and the Envy is like a speed 3 Teebird.

Here is some footage of guys throwing a bunch of BH and FH shots with those 3 discs. The RH guy throws FH shots if you skip around to the right place in the videos.
