I just have to mention the JK Aviar~X. I've thrown DX, Star, Champion and KC pro Aviars, Wizards, none drive as well as the JK in my humble opinion.

Other putters, especially overstable ones like Rhynos, VPs, Zones, etc, drive well but have too much fade.

I have seen the P2 mentioned a few times, and I'd recommend it as well. I have one in the G line plastic and I love it. The grip is fantastic and it has great hss with little fade.

This. I love mine! It feels like a mid, and it will beat in to super straight. It can handle a lot of power too.

i appreciate it!

i will say i've been throwing my metallic copper envy more and more lately, incredibly solid disc. i guess i got over the fact that it isnt a mvp zone.

The difference I find between a beat in Wizard an an Anode, is that the Anode has 0 turn at all and I find that it holds lines way moreso. The Wizard will be more "forgiving" in a way because it will flip up a little bit as it wears, whereas the Anode just holds mellow lines even when thrown very hard.

So it's similar flight paths but one acts like a fresher stable disc and the other acts as a more forgiving worn one.
I think this is a result of the premium vs baseline plastic differences more than anything. anodes are much more durable than almost any wizard blend (unless you are using a premium wiz but doesn't sound like it)

I look at it like the Rhyno / Aviar combo you see a lot of players carry. One is more shallow, does better in the wind, skips more, is easier to flick for approaches and throw short hyzers off the tee with, while the other has deeper dome, more glide, holds an anny better, is easier to shape lines with and holds straight with less power.

I'd still love a Zone competitor from them, but the Envy is solid. I realized over the weekend though that I needed a more neutral approach putter to pair with my Envys. Tossed a fresh Eclipse Ion back in my bag and I've been loving it for upshots. Holds a slight anny flick or BH better than my Soft N Envy I've been trying to season.

I'd recommend a Wizard, a BB Aviar or an Ion (since the OP seems to like MVP). I prefer to have a driving putter that is straight with a slight but consistent fade. These three molds all share that quality. Baseline plastic Aviars & Wizards are also great if you like cycling.

somebody needs to sell this guy an envy. I just threw mine and it is simply a birdie maker. the flight from 50-250 is the same for me, dead straight. i highly recommend the axiom envy, and the guys selling them on this forum. also i cant believe more people don't putt with them. seems like they glide faster to the chains with same throw that would normally just die short with other putters.
