This is a tough question to answer and it really shows the inconsistency of some molds- especially over time. I don't know the answer by the way but have tried to figure it out. I love the P3, it's my main throwing putter (C and S line) and circle putter (D-line not first run).

First Run P3s- I see what you are saying about the blunt Gator top. Keep in mind not all Gators have this top. I have also noticed the same blunt top on Ontario Classic Rocs. Rancho Classic Rocs are more rounded. The bottom is definitely XD because it doesn't have a bead.

Non First-Run D-Line P3s- More rounded top. To looks closer to both the Rancho and San Marino XDs I have.

C and S Line- Look more like the Non First-Run D-Lines.

I made these comments all while looking at all of these discs.

Anyway.. I feel like the P3 is some sort of bastard or step child to DiscMania that was given up by Innova when they abandoned Classic Rocs and XDs. DiscMania has fumbled around with what to do with it. Sucks because I like it so much (except 1st run D line) and it has stepped up my game. The P3X looks meh and a lot like the Omega Driver that just came out or an Aviar 3 with a bead. All I want in my life is a commitment to the flat S-line P3s, mild dome C-line P3s (re-invent the game stamp run) and most of all for DiscMania to make a stiff P-Line P3 in the current D-line mold. Is that so much to ask??

Just picked one of these up and its the first disc in 5 years that I have thrown that went right in the bag. I am a BB aviar putter and thrower and I took the P3X out for a round and it was what I always wanted the BB aviar to be. Im still putting with the KC aviar but my thrower is now a P3X. Its flatter so it fits a little better in the hand for throwing. If anybody is a BB aviar thrower I would highly suggest picking one of these up. Its more torque resistant then the BB aviar and to me its more overstable and a bit faster. loving this disc.

The D-line P3x is even better. Flatter, and stiffer with great grip. Likely going to be cycling a few for throwers and putting.

How deep is the p3x in the hand compared to a wizard? Love the wiz for putts but a bit deep for my liking to throw. Been using a star aviar3 for a throwing putter but d px3 sounds interesting.

The p3x feels pretty similar in depth to the wizard. If anything my p3x feels deeper. the p3x feels just like an aviar3 with a bead

Wiz-wise: for me the D-P3x is a flatter, slightly shallower and stiffer soft Wizard. I love that soft wizard I have but this is even better. Gotta see if it beats in as beautifully as that wizard.

I only have one so far tho, so cant comment on color variation if any.

Interested in how it beats in for you. You plan on using these as a primary putting putter? I putt with wizards, and don't really see the reason to switch, but my interest is piqued.
