My first thought is, "where are all the fairway drivers?". Seriously though, the best disc for you to try out IMO would be a fairway driver. I'm leaning towards a teebird and a banshee. The teebird is stable and the banshee is overstable.

One more thing, I'm assuming, based on the fact that you can throw a katana 400ft, your putters can go further than 80ft. Maybe experiment with a couple rounds of putter only.

My two cents.

I like the heavier aviar as your putter. As for putter driving or really driving in general, is the fracture an issue?

I'm not sure about your discs really, but from my experience the mids, stability wise, go something like this: overstable-KC pro Roc, Stable-Z Buzzz, and the fuse tends to be understable. I actually like this setup quite a bit. Not my preferred setup, but functional nevertheless.

RHBH is all about form. I really suggest checking out YouTube in these situations. There are a ton of videos out there. Dave Feldberg is one of the best teachers of disc golf form that I have found so far.

Putting is all about confidence in your putter and in yourself. It took me a long time to find the right putter, but now that I have found what's right for me, my putting has improved leaps and bounds. Whenever I have to replace a disc I always go feel up the putters.

Hope these help.

I am think bout getting a surge and avenger/ nuke to replace my beat dx beast and champion boss, then get another buzzz. but when I try to throw a putter like RHBH it just flips on me. My fibula it kinda hurts after multiple throws but I got ankle brace now so it really helps me to endure my pain

You're torquing your disc too much. Too much OAT on those putter throws. Don't try and throw the putters like drivers, try and throw them like mids.
