Default Infinite Discs SCARAB

The Infinite site has a new putter coming soon, the Scarab. Says it will be like the Myth (which is essentially a Whale), but with more glide. What can anyone here tell us about the Scarab?

Not much but the Scarab might be a very close Roach Clone with the info you gave me. I always thought the Whale was a Roach Clone so...

Roach is beadless, so I don't think so.

Rubber Putter has a bead yet is the closest in the ROC sized putters that have the same shape as the Aero. I was thinking the Whale is the beaded version of the Roach.

The Whale is essentially a V-Tech Aviar, and I've heard told that the Roach is very Aviar-'ish'. So they may have similarities.

I'm hoping some of the Team Infinite Discs members that post on these boards can drop some knowledge on what the Scarab is all about...

Hoping for the same too.

I haven’t gotten mine yet, or the Scepter which I’m Infinitely more excited for.

Bump. Anything new on the Scarab? Especially any comparisons vs. the Myth?

I throw Myths and got a Scarab this week on the premise that it is a glidier Myth. I have yet to throw it as I have not gotten out to the course yet but will be throwing it this weekend. It seems to me that the Scarab is an Aviar top on the Myth/Whale bottom. I have putted with it in my basement and it performs as well as any other putter from 15-20ft. I just don't have the space to test its glide or overstability, as from that distance all putts are generally going straight to the basket. Looking forward to putting it through the paces but it is going to take a very good performance to knock the Myth out of the bag. Myth's are very much point and shoot for me and can handle some torque. I am hoping for the same from the Scarab but with an extra bit of distance.
