The P2 has been a great addition, I feel like I keep my angles flatter without a bead.


I like the limited glide due to stability, and they are still glidey enough to nail lengthy putts, they just get to the ground more quickly than, say, an aviar when I air ball.


I am wondering if there is a breakdown anywhere, or if someone here is knowledgeable enough to do one, for the differences between stiff p-line, soft p-line, d-line, x-line etc. with respect to glide, grip and stability. I am currently using stiff p-lines, but I am looking for something with a little more grip, but that doesn't have a tone of glide.


Many a "nice" for anyone who can provide a direct answer, or a nudge in the right direction.
X-line would be your best bet.

D-Line = Good grip, the most glide, beats up the fastest.
P-Line = it's hard, KC Pro hard. Grip takes time to develop. Beats in slower, less glide.
X-Line = It's tacky, still hard. Better grip than D-Line in the cold.
"soft" p-line = unknown
Glow D-Line = Pretty much the same as D-Line
Glow P-Line = little better grip than hard p-line, little more glide as well.

Stability chart:

P-Line > X-Line > Glow P > D-Line > Glow D

All of them start out nice and stable when fresh. I wouldn't say any of them get super flippy even with heavy wear. D-Line can get deformed over time if you keep flexing them back into "disc" shape.

Extremely helpful. Thank you.


So, glow d-line is less OS than d-line? That is good info, I will not get those glow d-lines.


I can only find x-lines in like 170g. That might make them more glidey, I hope it doesn't effect stability. Maybe I'll get one, and if I don't like putting it, I will upshot & drive with it to get my flippy long putt P2, which I currently use Aviar P&As for.

at 250' same LSS, less HSS. They turn a bit more out of the box. No difference in putting.

They feel great though. I would pick up 1 personally. You'll like it.

I haven't putted a <175 p2. It will probably glide a bit more because you'll get more energy on it. Would be more noticeable with a putting style that imparts less spin I would imagine.

I use C-line or S-Line for upshots that I don't want to go right at all (RHBH) and D-line for touch shots. X-Line, D-Line, P-Line will all fly pretty much the same for upshots once you beat one in for a month.

I'm really looking for the soft P-Line. I love the feel of the x-line. It'll be interesting to see how they compare.

Soft P-Line P1 are pretty durn soft. A nice flop to them. Different year of release so they could be completely different of course.

I like this new “Soft P” and “Stiff P” distinction. Bodes well for most base-line Discmania and Innova stuff.

The soft P-line P2 is pretty darn soft. Its not 100% like the old P-line P1s that were tacoable, but it is noticeably softer and flexier than the X-line P2s. Compares pretty well to the Soft P-line P1xs although the surface complexion may be a little different. I dont have any of the other discs anymore to compare directly but IIRC. Good grip also.

Is it as tacky/grippy as the x-line?
