Prostyle plastic Umpshot #2 or U-2, if not that then the XT Colt. Another plastic is the R-pro Polecat just go to a store to feel them as a lot of variation happens between discs. Lastly try a Soft X Putt'r as it has very little roll but that is a disc for placement players that are very accurate up to 95% of the time on hitting a small spot 15 feet or more away that is the size of an Ultimate Disc.

I feel the Birdie rolls more than the average putter. Maybe it’s just me.

a few options here. A)You should explore different molds, i.e. Lids or discs that are known to just call outta da' sky (anything called a brick should work if thrown right). B) you can explore softer plastics. C) work on your angles and keep throwing the mold you're throwing now. Practice keeping the nose up and learn how to account for the skip on "faster" surfaces. Good luck!

Despite his obviousness (and lack of tact)... he's absolutely correct, and it's been discussed in other threads.

You can make an argument that softer putters bounce/roll less than stiffer ones. That's great if you like the feel of them and can put them on the chains more consistently than stiffer putters.

However, if your one of those who prefer your putter to be stiffer, shallower, deeper, heavier, lighter, whatever-er... and that characteristic translates into you being more confident with it, you'll stick more putts. Reducing the distance of rolls won't help scores as much as making putts in the first place.

Basically, no putter is really superior to any other putter. The simply have different characteristics. The putter that has the attributes YOU prefer is the one you'll make more putts with.

Bricks land on edge more than neutral putters. A Zone-like disc is going to have way more rollaways then something like a Nova. I agree with everything else you said, but experimenting with a Scale, Slammer, etc is more likely to exacerbate the OP's problem than to fix it.

How are you throwing putters OP? I usually throw backhand and don't see the disc get up on its edge that much... So, very few roll aways.

Wouldn't you have to be making the putter roll away by the way you are throwing?

There are no magic discs.
Throw what you like, learn your angles, and accept that sometimes the discs roll away.

That's why OP needs to pick up a TurboPutt. That's the real answer, just get a putter that isn't round
