Default Thinking of switching from the Reko to..

i need something similar to the reko feel and profile but with more glide. so far im considering the aviar pna, omega, pilot, and a voodoo maybe. i dont care for beaded putters really and nothing overly floppy or firm. the feel of the reko firmness is what i like, firm rim but pliable plate to dig my thumb into. im a spin putter , i just dont dig deep dish putters . i tried the p2 for a long time but it was always a bit too deep for me

My two suggestions are the Warden in Classic or Classic Blend, and the Prodigy Pa4 (unbeaded) or Pa3 (beaded) in 350g plastic.

Wardens are unbeaded and have that extra bit of glide you're wanting. I used to putt with them, then switched to the beaded Marshal when I changed my putting grip and throw. Try one in the plastic you like best.

Prodigy 350g plastic is really awesome, even better than my Reko's K3 plastic. The Prodigy putters always have reminded me of the Reko in their feel, though they're not shaped exactly the same.

Like you I hate deep dish putters. I normally push/loft putt but when I anhyzer, I spin.
The Soft Electron Atom has a firm rim with a soft rubber feeling plate. The Voodoo is nice but I can control the Atom better as it is a bit slimmer.

When I threw the Mercy I tried the Reko felt like they had similarities
