Quote:

The Rainmaker is a putter designed by none other than Eagle McMahon, one of the most deadliest players on the putting green. Eagle got the opportunity to design a disc of his dreams and he used it well, by designing the world’s best putting putter. The Rainmaker is a slightly lower profile, straighter and beveled version of a P2.

“What makes the Rainmaker special to me is the fact I was heavily involved in the design process. The Rainmaker represents everything I want in a putter. I will primarily use it for putting, but the shape of the disc also makes it an incredible point and shoot throwing putter with great glide." -Eagle McMahon

The Rainmaker is a Creator Series mold, meaning it’s reserved exclusively for Eagle McMahon releases.

So is this a P1 or a P2-2? They say it’s Originals, but their approach here is confusing.

Think Eagle will actually putt with them in tournaments? Even when the new P2s dropped he was still putting with the old ones. And why no Imperial Eagles?! So many questions.

I think Eagle and Simon both wanted slightly less stable P2s. Simon has frequently putted, missed, exclaiming “that is so stable”. Says shallower, less overstable. Meh. I have two Cloudbreaker 3 and four new P2. I’ll pass.


(maybe)

I think any of their discs going forward that are made in their factory (i.e., not by Yikun or Latitude) are going to be their “originals”.

Whatever this putter is that Eagle “created” is probably based off of their new P2 mold. I doubt they would go through the trouble of trying to build a new mold to recreate the P1 or whatever that Innova used to make for them. My real guess is that during the making of their new P2 mold there was some trial and error and this putter was part of that experimentation and Eagle happened to think it was kind of cool.

Obviously this is all total speculation on my part.

For Discmania Support:

A couple questions about the eagle mystery box:

1. For those who snagged the black friday box - how much of the eagle box contents will be similar? What are the chances of ending up with similar discs between the two boxes?
2. I'm assuming we'll be seeing a production run of the rainmaker at some point. It would be a shame to fall in love with a putter only to see it limited to special releases. What is the word on that?

Lastly,

When is DM going to let out another production update? I think most of us are curious what the rest of the winter is going to look like.

And for the record I really hope DM goes through with the idea of a membership club of some sort. I'd be very interested in that.

Happy Holidays

Feels pointless to have a putter you canīt buy backups for..

Could be a nice disc but no way i wpuld try it until itīs a stock disc

It was definitely rough for a while, but things are swinging back. You can find the stock releases that they’ve done regularly (mainly P2 and md3), and it will only continue to get better. Time to get that DM back in your bag!

I couldn't agree with this more. The "Rainmaker" is probably pretty sweet, but what happens when you loose it or it breaks? Everything from DM this year suggests that they are building towards more consistency and stability not only with special releases, but also with stock runs. Obviously that takes time and the current supply shortages from COVID don't help. I think the next couple of years will be big for DM in terms of rebuilding a brand that players can depend upon to always have discs in stock.

It's a Rainmaker! Eagle has created these and it will not be a P2. Similarities for sure, but it's a Rainmaker

Good questions. The second box will be entirely different than the first. There may be one disc found from the previous one inside but everything else should not be the same. It's very possible that you could receive a similar misprint but that is tough to predict.

Rainmaker 100% will be a full release. These are special versions and may have variance compared to production stamps but rest assured that you'll be able to buy more of them next year.

Production update should be posted early January most likely. Thanks for your patience!

Rainmaker will absolutely be produced as a full-scale signature release, don't worry!
