Depends on what you want it to do.

Envy is great at holding a line with but much turnand a soft fade. Scale is great and except for its thumb groove feels a lot like a Judge, just a harder fade. Serpent will neither turn nor fade and is a lot of fun to throw.

Recently I have been enjoying the Yikun Hammer. It throws a bit like an Envy, takes a ton to turn it and the fade while present isn’t too intense. It’s got a funky raised thumb track that some may not love but I have enjoyed it a lot.

Harp is another great option, but it’s near midrange speed.

For driving with putters I find its more about plastic feel than the putter itself. I switched from a Pure to a Maiden thinking it was about depth, the maiden is VERY shallow. After tossing them a bit I've come to the conclusion what I want is probably a Pure in more premium plastic.

I think the best thing to think about in throwing putters is stall speed-basically, how it handles high speed vs low speed flight.

I used to throw proxy/envy, and still rotate them in the bag. But I recently switched to profits, a slower, bigger beaded putter, and I’m much better on my upshot-shorter Drive game. Slower putters tend to be more predictable throughout a slower flight than faster putters do when slowed down.
I can’t put my Profits as far as my proxy/envy (I ripped my proxy too far on a 340 foot woods hole... missed the putt, tragic) but I like them better for shorter holes. They have a different “push-glide” at the end of their flight as opposed to a dump where they fade and gradually fall. If you’re looking for that looo big bead and slower, with usually a taller height; if you want something fast that you want to rip like a driver, something with a (generally) smaller/no bead and a shallower depth.

As stated above you could start with a low profile putter. A gateway chief, gateway Shaman, Innova Colt, Innova Stud, etc. These discs are slower than mids but are fast for putters.
The feel will be more familiar.

Care to elaborate? That was one thing I thought it could be. Not so much that the grip im using is wrong, but that i havent found one I like. When I'm putting I prefer a 4 finger fan grip but driving with them I'm not sure. Next time I get oyt I'm thinking about trying more of a control grip.

5 of some non-extreme putter in a base plastic. greatly enhances practice opportunity. i firmly believe work with a pile of same discs help hone what one can do with disc in general and then apply when trying other molds.

a way i get to know putters and grip is keeping a couple in reach of my drivers seat to fondle on the road. helps for impromptu gotta throw a frisbee sessions wherever i may be.

Have you tried just using the fan grip, or just a modified fan grip? I pretty much use the same grip I use on midsized (yep, a modified fan grip).. I can not power grip a putter, uh uh.

I think the MJ fan grip (with the pointer and pinky tucked like a power grip then the middle 2 fanned) is the best grip to learn driving with putters. I then moved to the birdie grip after 8 months (MJ grip but just middle finger fanned). You will lost some distance but control will increase. Distance will come back with practice.
