Default What is the longest/straight putter?

I love putters, and I honestly wouldn't mind throwing only putters for all but the longest holes.

I was wondering what are the longest putters? I imagine the ideal driving putter would be something that flies straight with a lot of glide, but has enough high speed stability to not turn over too early in the flight.

From another thread, I read about MVP and Axiom discs in particular flying far? Which specific discs, or what about other brands like Discraft, Innova, Westside, Prodigy, etc...?

I think the Axiom Envy is hard to beat for a throwing putter. I actually pulled my mids out of my bag for a while when I was bagging an Envy because I got such good distance with it.

An odd disc I use is the #2 Upshot from Lighting in Prostyle, a disc that is like a more neutral then slight US putter of a Colt but with a big bead more so in heavy weight for the #2 Upshot. The Dart is another disc that is neutral and a rather long flier. The Classic ROC although on the Innova Factory store as a slight OS midrange like a Shark at same speed, it is more a putter and only sold as Limited run disc in Star. The mold is a putter that is when I used a new DX a slight OS driving putter good for a beginner. In fact this was why I got a #2 Upshot in Prostyle in 2005, the Classic ROC was hard to find/temporally oop and the #2 Upshot is the closest mold in looks to a Classic ROC. That and wanted a disc that is more for uphill/downhill putting and long putting past 40 feet/US approach putting unlike the then only closest disc Innova made the Shark.

The Shark (not a putter) I got to have a Classic ROC flight for the driving putter spot, a Hydra is same numbers but the wing shape is not comfortable for a driving disc, the odd concave shape to the wing works better for approach to putting putter, I know having tested my dad's ~170 gram DX Hydra in same DX as the eras DX Dragon.

Just to chime in quick, but I agree with ray, Envy's are money. I have no experience with other MVP putter molds. The Envy is so low pro that it feels like a mid, but flies like a putter, but longer. Sneaky distance. Great, great mold.

The Envy is stupid long, I can throw it just as far as most midranges.

I have seen videos of people crushing a Luna as well, but I’ve not tried to throw one far.

In my experience, the Dart. If you're wanting to mash on the putter as hard as possible and have it hold straight, the Envy.
