Agreed.

Spin putter here: Reko is the best putter for my style/hands ever to be made.

So far, I'm not clicking with this disc. Most of my putts are dropping fast and hitting the cage. When I try to adjust, I'm flying over the top.

I also had a bunch of weird release issues.

I'm assuming it's just me but I'm shocked how much I don't like this disc in the circle...so far
I am a spin putter as well as others, but have had a little bit of the same issue. I used to putt with Yetis and puddle topped challengers and have found that the Rekos just take a little more power than those just mentioned. Its been taking some getting used to. Feels like there is a sweet spot for how much power to give these. Too little and it drops quick face masking, too much and Im banging top band.
Gonna give it a chance this winter during putting practice, but am going to work it out side by side with my rubber blend challengers.

Definitely feels like it needs just the right amount of power for my putting style.

I don't think I can make it work.

I may try to use them for up shots but I'm a smart guy and bought black putters, so that will be a treat.

I could see how a light weight K3 would be better for putting. Now you have me thinking...

I use two K3 Rekos, one beat to straight and one new. They both get used for putting as well as driving with angle, line and wind dictating which one to use. They are surprisingly durable to be baseline plastic.
Yes they do need some extra power but once you find the level they are fantastic. They are also nice to release on a anny if you need to get around/between a couple of trees. Feel very versatile

Would a K1 reko overlap or compliment a neutron envy?

I love the Reko and their K3 plastic is fantastic! Kind of reminds me of Innova XT. Really good stuff for putting.

IMHO the K3 plastic is much better than Innova's XT.
K3 is one of the best putter plastics out there, along with Prodigy's 350g.
