I don't know that I'd call a Judge low profile.

OAT? Sorry, I'm new to all these terms!

Off axis torque.

This is what happens when your grip or release angle pulls the plane of the disc off of its imaginary "axis", you will see a wobble in the disc after release and it will cause the disc to act less stable at first, sometimes even turning over and resulting in a throw that isn't intended.

A good throw should have low OAT, or less wobble, unless its intended.

Putters can sometimes be very susceptible to OAT and this is why learning to drive with a putter is good for improving your form.

An Envy would work well for you.

I'd also add a hyzerbomb tank (beadless rhino) or rhino. Can pair well with each other actually.

also a LYCAN is a great in-betweener type of disc....it's like a fast putter or a slow mid and it is blunted on the edge so it's very controlled, but it's more stable than a mako......great disc

Well, I can get the Roc3 to at least 310', I havn't had the time to check my max with it. 310' is quite controlled. So I'm in a need of something slower for the shorter holes and approaches. Something that I can put quite a bit of power behind, but still keeps a straight line. Any mid is too long for this, so I really need a putter.

Haven't even seen a Tank yet. Is it a little more shallow than the Rhyno since it's missing the bead? Any glide there?

Agree about the Rhyno. Quite fun to throw but just no glide at all. The Envy is kind of like a glidy Rhyno as weird as that is to imagine. Since I have a noodle of an arm, that's why I listed the Envy instead.

I like a d-line gremlin. see my I have putters post. I also hate thick putters. I use a dx skeeter to putt, g star skeeter for understable putting drives, d-line gremlin for straight into wind, S-line gremlin for more wind or distance.
