I also am believing (and hoping) that Infinite Discs will continue to build up their lineup. They've hit a lot of home runs, so far.
Their biggest advancement has been that I-Blend plastic. I won an I-Blend Myth in a raffle and gave it to a buddy who putts with Whales. He loves it. It's so much grippier for putting than anything available in Innova's stuff. Reminds me a lot of DD's Classic Blend plastic, which is IMO the main thing Trilogy has going for them over Innova's stuff. I'd imagine Innova would sell boatloads of I-Blend Aviars, especially if somebody like James Conrad started bagging them.

But we're getting off topic. KC BBQ really does have other styles beat, outside of TX brisket.

Are there two versions of I blend? Looks like it's driver pro on molds like the Exodus.

I was wondering after I read GoobyPls's comments about I-blend Myths, but while I-blend is a Star-"ish" plastic and great in drivers, I could see the plastic being used in putters as well.

I get the feeling that Innova is using Inifinite Discs (in a good way) to try some new molds and new plastics. I-blend may be one of those experiments, and it has been a successful one, so far. So has the Sphinx and Tomb as new molds. The P-blend (Pro) of my Geisinger Myth feels more like slick McPro plastic than regular Pro plastic.

Maybe InfinityDylan will hook us up with some knowledge of these things, as well as new ideas they have?...

Thinking about it, I'm not 100% sure it was I-Blend. May have been P-Blend, but it was months ago and I don't remember. I'm getting senile from overexposure to BBQ.

I just did what I should've done earlier: I went to the site and looked. The Myth currently comes in D-blend, P-blend, and X-blend, so yours probably was a P-blend.

Side note: there is no such thing as 'overexposure' to good BBQ.

Have you felt JK Pro plastic? I wonder if it is similar to the Pro plastic Infinite is using. I could see that being a hit in a few different putter molds.

I've felt JK Pro, and it is not similar at all to my P-blend Geisinger Myth (which is the same as the Innova Whale).

Ok I just caught up and can't believe you guys overlooked such an important point-

Grilling is open-faced, BBQ is done in a closed chamber. Grilling is direct heat, and bbq (esPECIALLY smoking) is indirect heat.

I mean we've just been dancing around it.
