Default Infinite Discs Cohort

Infinite Discs has just put out the Cohort. 3.5/4/0/1 are the numbers, and it's available in D-blend and R-blend (DX and R-pro equivalents). Anyone on Team Infinite can tell us more about this mold?

The first review says between a Dart and XD.

Before I read that, my first thought was flat top Dart or XD.

You got it!

The Cohort is a bit faster than the other puttters in the Infinite Discs lineup (Tomb, Myth and Scarab) and is beadless. To me it feels a bit like the old discontinued Innova Ace in the hand, though I know it is not based on that disc at all. If you've thrown the Scarab, the Cohort is like the faster version of that. The feel is different, but the flight is about the same.

I've had limited time with it, being here in Afghanistan and all, but its a very workable upshot-driving type putter. For me, I prefer my driving putters to have a little more stability and I greatly prefer the Tomb for this role. For a player with more finesse and skill, however, I think the Cohort will be a pretty popular addition. Especially in R-Blend plastic, where it will hit and stick on long runs and upshots.

Thanks for the report. And stay safe in Afghanistan!

Now if it is between a Dart and XD maybe I can hope they make a big bead version to be between a Classic ROC and Dart type disc. Then you have a R-Pro or DX Classic ROC like disc, the DX or old Pro Classic ROC was nice for me but I like the Pro Shark dome ones Yet not the modern Star version that a person I knew got to try the mold, I felt the disc and the dome was like a domed mistake Aero X-out. He now uses mostly Discraft with the Star Cayman and Gator in a few OS plastics as the approach disc.

It's the old mold XD. Loving it back in the bag (I removed the XD when it was too hard to find more of them). Friend of mine loves it too - it's just as good as it was back in the day - your super straight glidey P/A for 200' touch shots and in. The D Blend has dome on it, but glides sooooo far (because of the dome). The R Blend is a flat top, but beats up really fast. I'm using both.

I'm not sure I'd classify this as the old mold XD...pretty domey for that IMO. I can definitely see the XD/Dart love child comparison. The one I have has been getting quite a bit of air time as it is really straight and glidey. I'd put it at the following numbers.

Speed: 3.5
Glide: 6
Turn: 0
Fade: 0

It's like a speed 3'ish Comet in terms of flight.

So a Banger GR8 with better glide?

Kind of...probably a smidge faster than a Banger.
