I second the p1x suggestion. I switched from wizards and have been very happy with them for putting (d line) and throwing (x line)

These have already been mentioned, but the Voodoo, Focus, or Challenger might have what you are look for. Voodoo I think is the strongest candidate.

Having said that, I would recommend modifying your putt to make the putter do what you want. Maybe that’s with a putter you already have, or it might be easier to adjust your putt if you have a new, different feeling putter in your hand. Either way, I’m a fan of learning how to work a disc so that it does what you want.

It really comes down to a minimalism argument. I understand the advantages of never changing your throw and relying on the disc to determine the flight shape. But it seems to me like your game would be limited by the number of discs you carry if that is your mentality. If you really know how to work a disc then you are well prepared for any hole you come up against. And your bag is lighter and your wallet is heavier

Legacy Prowler is the same shape as a Wizard/Judge but significantly straighter.

Inside 30ft it really is about your feel and confidence. Just pick a putter that feels good to you and then make that work. Start with a methodical routine starting from your legs and self evaluate how each is performing in the process. Where is you big toe pointed? Are you on the balls of your feet or on your toes? Do you rock back and forth or stay grounded?????? The putter only does what you tell it to do. There really is no magic putter. And if you buy a putter to do something as it relates to your mechanics and you don't really know what that is, you will evolve and change your putting style and your putter will then "not work". Is is always the archer and never the arrow...... That being said, I love putting with the Firm Electron Pilots inside 30 feet. Find a mold you like, beat some in, evaluate your putting style to the disc, and then adjust.

If you are hitting the cage with a Judge you are simply not giving it enough juice or height. One or the other, they are very glidey. If you like the bead on a putter to place your finger on it (like I do) than the voodoo simply wont feel comfortable, it is very straight but has a micro bead so I could never really feel it when putting. I would say keep the judge or try out the yeti pro aviar or the new Link in exohard from Dismania (amazing disc that feels very similar to a judge).

Agreed that putters all fly the same inside ~30 feet. Try something like a Swan 2 if you want that -1 turn rating, but I barely can tell a difference between its flight and my beloved KC/JK Aviars'.

Maybe just take the KC Aviar you like and slide 'em around a parking lot a bit to take some of the bead (read: stability) off.

Also, if you dont NEED a bead there's the Deputy, Swan, or even Roach. They are all less stable the discs you have listed, like some others have said.

I don't think you're going to find a putter to solve your issues like practice to build your confidence would. Every putter, no matter how neutral will drop and hit cage or fade early if you don't execute.

Now that sounds too damn simple and requires some work

There has to be a putter out there that does all the work for you!
And of course, there is going to be an endless list of disc suggestions

People who are good putters aren't keeping a secret from everyone else. Simple practice is what it takes with a putter that feels good in your hand.
Which putter is that? Only you know.
