Infinite Discs Putters – What the Team Wants

Infinite Discs opened up a survey in February 2020 to the members of Team Infinite in order to see which Infinite Discs brand putters they liked the most. We also asked which plastic blends they wished to have with those putters. While Infinite Discs had released four putters in D-Blend plastic, not all of those putters have seen premium plastic releases yet. Since the brand is still new and we’re trying to discover what the players want most, we felt that feedback would be valuable.

THE FIRST FOUR PUTTERS

First of all, let’s introduce you to the putters in the Infinite Discs line-up. At the time of this survey there were four primary putters. The RUIN has just been introduced, and while it has the dimensions of a putter, it is designed primarily as an overstable approach disc, so it is excluded here.

The MYTH

The MYTH was the first putter in the Infinite Discs brand lineup and we wanted to start strong. The Myth is a dependable, beaded putter with a comfortable rim that can be used for precision putting, or as a driving putter and approach disc.  The Myth has a slight end fade and only moderate glide.

These are the flight numbers:

  • Speed: 2.0
  • Glide: 3.0
  • Turn: 0.0
  • Fade: 2.0

 

The TOMB

The TOMB is a flat-topped, low-profile, putt-and-approach disc with a comfortably smooth, beaded rim. The Tomb has just the right amount of stability to cover ground while threading the needle on approach shots, whether thrown forehand or backhand. It can also be used as a crossover mid-range, driving putter, or to hold the line while putting for distance or in moderate headwinds.

These are the flight numbers:

  • Speed: 3.0
  • Glide: 4.0
  • Turn: 0.0
  • Fade: 1.0

The SCARAB

The SCARAB is a beaded putter that has a similar rim configuration to the Infinite Discs Myth, but with a different flight plate that provides a longer glide for longer putts and approaches. If you love throwing putters for distance, or you’re seeking pinpoint accuracy gets the job done. It has less fade and more glide than the Myth with a similar feel.

These are the flight numbers:

  • Speed: 2.0
  • Glide: 4.0
  • Turn: 0.0
  • Fade: 1.0

The COHORT

The COHORT is a unique putt-and-approach disc that is a great, beadless option for mid-range and approach shots with a comfortable rim for either backhand or forehand players. The revolution toward smaller-diameter discs for mid-range shots continues and the Cohort is stable enough to hold the line when thrown with confidence. When in a firm plastic blend, it makes a great putting putter for players who prefer a beadless rim.

These are the flight numbers:

  • Speed: 3.5
  • Glide: 4.0
  • Turn: 0.0
  • Fade: 1.0

 

WHICH ARE THE FAVORITES?

As of February 2020, the players surveyed picked their favorites of these four putters. The results were quite interesting, showing that a lot of the players preferred the two putters which double more as approach discs. The Tomb and the Cohort are both very effective approach discs– one with a bead and one without. While the Tomb has been available in several plastics, including premiums like C-Blend and S-Blend, the Cohort was only introduced in D-Blend (base plastic) and R-Blend (a soft, flexible blend). Here is a look at a chart showing the favorites:

 

The popularity of the COHORT is particularly interesting since it was only released in limited editions to the Infinite Discs VIP Club and Team Infinite members in 2019 with remaining R-Blend discs sold to the public with a bottom stamp. Apparently those few people who have the disc ended up loving it!  The TOMB, on the other hand, has a longer history and has been released in multiple plastic blends due to its popularity.

WHICH PLASTICS IN THE FUTURE?

The surveyed Team Infinite members definitely had a lot to say when explaining why certain putters needed to be released in specific plastic types. There were too many requests and comments to share here. As a few examples, these were some thoughts:

  • “I would love to see the Cohort and Tomb in Metal Flake Glow C-Blend!”
  • “Myth in S-Blend (and some more max weight P-Blend), and a Scarab in P-Blend, Swirly S-Blend, and Splatter are always cool too.”
  • “P-blend Scarab and S-blend cohort.”
  • “Stiff P-Blend Tomb. or X-Blend Tomb, please.”
  • “Myths and Scarabs in C-Blend, R-Blend, and any other premium plastic. Also more Myth
    X-Blend runs please.”
  • “I’d like to see more tacky grip, but medium to firm stiffness on a putter. The X-Blend
    works great for that in my opinion, but I haven’t been able to putt comfortably with
    any of these putters yet.”
  • “Cohort in C-Blend or Swirly S-Blend.”
  • “Myth in premium, like S-Blend,C-Blend, Swirly and Splatter.”

There’s usually just as many requests are there are different tastes. But we tallied up those requests and found that the following were the most requested for future releases (top 6 in order of most requested):

  1. C-Blend COHORT
  2. Luster C-Blend TOMB
  3. C-Blend MYTH
  4. Metal Flake Glow C-Blend TOMB
  5. S-Blend COHORT

FAVORITE PUTTER COLORS

We also thought that it would be fun to ask our Team Infinite members which colors they prefer for putters. They were allowed to name any color and vote for more than one if they have several favorites. This is what they picked as their favorite colors for putters:

We will continue to seek feedback from our team members as well as the public when it comes to the types of discs and the types of plastics used, as well as the preferred colors.

If you have any feedback on these putters or would like to request a special plastic type, feel free to comment below.
