The soft x roach could be the direction to go as others have said. I had a brand new soft x challenger recently and it was understable right off the shelf. If you're not committed to Discraft only, a Swan might be a good fit also.
I had a stack of Swans that i won, but gave them away to a beginner. .but i did try one and i like how it flew but the sharp edge on the bottom really bugged me.

Kind of love US discs. . i tested every US mid on the market . .fell in love with the DGA Tremor.
So trying to find a "Slower Tremor" type flight. . and have tried most of the US putters but no "love at first throw" yet

Z Sol feels fine but in the 250ft range it just fly to straight for me..the AR ones is more US but hard to find.
Might try a soft Roach..feels like my Lunas, but softer and easier to beat in
I swear by the APX for straight to easy turnover shots. And as they beat in, it only gets better. Hyzerflip up tunnel shots no problem. It’s bascially and shorter and slower comet.

The old elite x’s are more domey and tend to be a bit more stable. The new x softs or jawbreakers are great for floaty and controllable approaches.

Will a Pro-D Challenger SS or a Soft-X Roach beat in to that nice US turnover putter faster than my Lunas?
Did try a ZFLX Challenger and thats a nice turn out of the box. . but HARD to break that plastic in to a more US flight

Maybe a APX or Reef?

Want that hyzerflip to turnover ( but not insta roller) flight . . .have a beat in Magic in that spot today, which Discraft/DGA putter can beat in to that "beat in Magic" flight?

X Putt'r is a turnover machine out of the box. I currently use a ESP Challenger as my US putter.

I bag one. It's my go-to hyzer flip disc. On non windy days it will flip up to flat and go a mile straight. Great disc highly recommend.

But Soft X Putt'r stinks for me as the soft plastic has the disc lose all of the glide it has once the top does the mini concave to the top as the disc breaks in after a number of putts 25-30. I had a first run Soft X Putt'r, made as soon as Soft X came out, very first runs of the Putt'r were in Soft Pro D or regular I forget but were for a single run of about 5,000 or so. The mini concave helps the Putt'r lose so much glide almost all of it that one needed to spin the disc as a putter who uses only spin and no shoving power at all to generate the forward momentum as it is easy to overpower the Soft X Putt'r past the basket on a shove/push putt or a mixed pushing spin putt. Other discs in the Soft X plastic do not do the mini concave but do a micro concave at most so they keep the discs glide the mold has in the Soft X plastic from the begging. I do have a Turnover putter as my main putters, both are a Magnet beat in with Jawbreaker plastic. The Proline Titanic is my neutral Putter as that plastic is an old ESP/modern Titanic like plastic combo that resists breaking in as a putter.
