Try a Gateway Putter. They make 4 excellent putters. 3 of their molds are essentially improved versions of the Aviar.
The Wizard is their most stable putter and feels a lot like a KC Pro Aviar because of the big bead.
The Voodoo has a much smaller bead and flies like a beat up Wizard.
The Warlock is essentially a Wizard without the Bead, and flies the least stable out of the three.
They also have a putter called the Magic that's not based off the Aviar and flies really understable.
All Gateway putter fly great in the wind because they're molded gyroscopic-ally, meaning heavier and thicker out on the rim and thinner and lighter on the flightplate. This makes them fly further, more consistent and just all around better than the Aviar.
The MVP Ion essentially takes gyroscopic molding to the next level with their Ion, but why drop $20 on an Ion when you can get Wizards that fly just as well for $10.
Inside the 10M line all putter will essentially fly the same. Find one that you get a comfortable and consistent grip with. Also helps if it doubles as your approach and driving putter as well. I'm a big proponent of carrying only one putter mold.
Oh yeah and about the P1 and P2 since I'm a little bit of a Discmania expert...
The P1 is an Aviar Putt and Approach same mold and everything just rebranded and a different stamp.
The P2 is an Aviar X or Aviar Driver with an added spacer in the mold to give it a little higher shoulder height and with out the bead.
They shouldn't fly similar at all the P1 should be quite understable off the tee while the P2 will be almost to the overstable side of the scale. Both very good putters though.
