Default An overstable putter that doesn't like to roll

I play some very very hilly local courses, I'm looking for a putter that will hit and stick on some of the steepest of hills. I currently use a medium Harp for the job, but I feel like there are better disc for it; open to all recommendations but I do prefer to throw trilogy plastic

Soft VP/Ridge? I use a soft ridge, but I wouldn't say it's too overstable.

Rollaways are part of the game. While a soft putter will reduce the chances a little, they aren't going to eliminate them. I would suggest practicing to land flatter (in line with the ground) in those hilly areas.

Thinking of trying a soft shield, and if that doesn't work out, something else. Lol
I feel like a disc should be specifically made for this, with the underside rim extending further than the top or sides; and a sharp underside like the Pure, or P2 from discmania

I agree, I do as much as possible, It's often that a rock will goof up a perfect throw

I'm in the same boat as most of my rounds are indeed played in the Mountain State - plenty of elevation for discs to roll away from the basket. I'll put in another vote for the Really Freakin' Flexible Wizards!
