Default As of 2017, which putters most resemble the ZONE?

In terms of speed and stability.

I'm looking at any other companies.

From what I know, some include the sinus, suspect, and maybe verdict? (mid)

anything else as of late?

In terms of speed and stability, premium plastic Gators definitely resemble a Zone (completely different hand feel though).

Prodigy A3 flies a good bit like a beat in zone as well.

I've only owned 1 (Fuzion) Suspect, but it wasn't as overstable as a Zone. The Verdict is significantly faster/longer than a Zone. Premium plastic Harps might be comparable although I've never owned one so others might chime in there.

Prodigy A series is a good call. I've heard that the A1 and A2 are extremely overstable so maybe one of those would be similar.

The new DD Slammer is pretty close in flight. Very different in feel though.

This is what I switched to... as flat a champ Gator as I can find.

Premium harps go nowhere. Start fading out halfway through the flight, I couldn't throw mine past 275 on a flat toss (I throw proxy/envy ~325) so I traded it. If you're looking fir something that goes way way way left and doesn't get very far doing it a harp is a good place to start.

must say i was shocked to not see the harp as the first answer. its the ONLY disc golf disc to compare to a zone, period. personally though i dont bag mine because it makes my games dull. too easy.
