Is there a putter like this? Shallow as a Zone, rim like a Warden?

I've tried with my Pure and Swan, they're a little more shallow, but the rims aren't beefy enough.

Don't have any decent disc stores nearby, so I can't go handle a bunch.
Something to really look into is the Reptilian Disc Golf - SERPENT - its bulky, in a good way, but super basic design, like a hockey puck, but goes DEAD straight, stable, not OS not US - just straight - its slow, and lower glide - but makes approaches a dream and windy putts aren't a problem (because low glide) either way its worth getting 1, I promise its a great disc. 2/2/0/0.75 but a TRUE 0 turn - Get max weight Fossil or Fossil Fuel plastics. its like 12$ shipped so you cant go wrong

I think this is what I was looking for and settled on a Kastaplast Reko. Shallow, not as big of a rim as a Warden, but its there. Dead straight too

I like this answer, the Reko. I like it in the K3 plastic.

+1 for both the shaman and the magic, used both of the previously and they are awesome, the shaman is a touch shallower but I have not seen them produced in the "classic blend" equivalent

More good options. If only I had the spare money to order one of everything in this thread.

The Ringer looks like it might be too shallow, though. Shallower than the Zone. As a throwing putter, I could see it. And the Serpent even more, if specs are correct. Interesting discs. I'd try 'em if I could.

Reko seems to be a great choice. Many reviewers liked the feel of it.

Right now, I'm thinking Shaman and Reko. See which I like better of those.

Thanks for all suggestions.

Chief. Although I throw PWP Wizards. Flat top makes for a low pro feel. I'm picky about putters though and low pro isn't the same as shallow rimmed.

Pure is very flat and shallow, similar flight to Warden

Agree with pure in zero hard. A close second is an envy if you want a more stable putter.
