Similar to Newport 3 but much softer face?

Played the Newport 3 last year with the Srixon Z-star. Super soft ball.<br />
<br />
Switching to Z-star XV this year and it's considerably firmer and click'ier off the face.<br />
<br />
Anyone have any recommendations on similar performing/hanging putters, but with much softer faces that I should consider? i.e. an insert. Doesn't necessarily have to be the same shape. I really do like how the faces feel off the Spider putters but hate the look of it while standing over the ball.<br />
<br />
Thanks for your thoughts.

    Take a look at the Bobby Grace 18 blade. Great performer with the very soft hsm insert and can be had at a great price if you're patient.

    Some of the odyssey inserts are soft. I have an old #9 white hot xg; super soft in general. Can barely feel it hitting a chrome soft, way to soft for me. Also have a ping sigma Shea h that’s a tad more firm than the odyssey. (I personally prefer a solid, milled face)

    The odyssey white hot putters are almost way too soft with that insert. I tried Bettinardi bb1s and they felt great

    Rife Abaco - milled groove face (non-insert).  Sneaky soft but offers good feedback where you need it.  Very affordable to boot.
