The floppy putter R-Pro doesn't beat in, ever. Just ask Varsi. And I can vouch for my own P-P1, I don't throw it anymore, having moved on to more overstable molds, but for the first 3 years of my disc golf career it didn't really change at all.
You and I have had different experiences with r-pro, the couple of r-pro aviars I tried got gouged up really quick
I haven't thrown R-Pro Aviars but the P1 Maniac is durable. Roc takes at least cosmetic damage something the P1 will only take on rocks with glass and perhaps hitting the basket hard. Rhyno and Pig get nicks easily. R-Pro is different floppy in the Darts at least the first ones i haven't touched them later. Maybe there are lots of R-Pro blends just like there are over 200 Star blends.
The recommendation for a new player is gonna be different than to an experienced player. For the fastest skill development i would not use drivers and the Coyote and the Warship go plenty far without being as touchy and infuriating as Comets/Fuses/Axis. Make no mistake each of those discs are great when you get good form and clean releases. That is the big if for new players. And in headwinds as i saw the Comet flip yesterday. The Warship flips more than the Coyote so it needs less power to be thrown on different lines.
Putters will teach you the quickest and because both the Coyote and the Warship are long for a mid the putter does not need to be. So i'd pick a putter suiting your preferred putting style and in an ideal world it would drive well and feel comfortable in the hand. Those are so personal things that nobody can guess what works for you. People with large hands dislike thin putters and people with small hands abhor tall putters. Pitch putters often like less gliding fading putters and laser putters love fast gliding low to no fade putters. Even tackiness matters as some like slick discs and most need tacky ones. This may be confusing if you don't know a lot of putters so for a laser putter soft APX is moderate in height suitable for all hand sizes with tackiness speed and glide great for laser putts sucking in the wind and drives. Anode is also moderate slick and fast plus gliding so good for laser putts and great for driving and doesn't mind winds. I don't pitch putt so just looking at a flight chart or what the best throwers use may help. The best players use Magics and Aviar big beads AKA Aviar drivers and often in KC Pro plastic. KC Pro Aviar drives well too. It is bulky for small hands and it's been manufactured in different blends and some are hard and slick some fairly stiff but somewhat tacky. You should pick what you like remembering that rain and dew make discs slicker so getting a tacky disc helps a lot with not having the disc to slip out and you gotta use a towel.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
