Agree about the Rhyno. Quite fun to throw but just no glide at all. The Envy is kind of like a glidy Rhyno as weird as that is to imagine. Since I have a noodle of an arm, that's why I listed the Envy instead.
Definitely feels a touch more shallow and flies very similarly but without the fade. I haven't had the tanks for very long so I'll have to compare the glide the next time I go out.

I picked up a recycled spike yesterday and it is an amazing driving putter, thrown flat it will go straight and gently turn right (rhbh) or throw it on a bit of hyzer and it goes dead straight. I have never seen a straighter putter when new. it is also low profile, feels similar to a mako but easier to release and slower

Axiom Envy. Best feeling driving putter I've tried - perfect shallow rim. Problem with most driving putters is the rounded edge that throws people off, not necessarily how shallow it is. Get an Envy, you will thank me (and the others who already mentioned it) later.

ok, it is similar in that it is rounded a lot but the rim width of the spike is about half of the mako's, just a suggestion if your at a store feel one up they fly nicely

I live in Norway, we have ONE online shop. I'm ordering two Envys from Hyzer Farm at eBay tomorrow! I'll get both proton and neutron at 173/174 grams.

good decision! I have a neutron that I drive with and a proton that I use for outside-the-circle putts, both are 174g and awesome.

A good throw should have low OAT, or less wobble, unless its intended.

Putters can sometimes be very susceptible to OAT and this is why learning to drive with a putter is good for improving your form.

An Envy would work well for you.
Is is still OAT if there is no discernible wobble but it still fades left when the disc is stable to overstable?
