I have never even held a P3X so take that for what you will. A Scale is an every so slightly deeper Wizard with a subtle yet super comfortable thumb groove. I would recommend trying one EDIT: check the ODRB ITB thread for a little Wizard-thrower proof if you want!

If you can switch between scale and Rhyno then it should be what I am looking for. P3X is like a Rhyno with more distance potential and no thumbtrac. Thanks. Hopefully somemore feedback will come in.

Scales are great. I am not familiar with the P3X, but the Scale is a fairly deep disc. You will be right at home with the Scale if you already throw Wizards. Think of it as a Wizard OS. Scales can handle a ton of power, always finish with a predictable fade, and don't have much glide. RDG has some really nice plastic options as well, with my personal preference being Fossil.

My favorite plastic to date is PW. I have heard of fossil being similar. Kind of like a chalky proto feel hopefully I like it BC I pulled the trigger and bought one last night.

So, the rumors were true. The RDG Scale kicked the P3X straight outta my bag. Feels like a Wizard and that Subtle thumbtrack is just enough of a depression to feel like my PW Wizard when it starts to puddle as I beat it in. Beautiful overstability. Hits and sits right where I want it every time. First five throws 2 hit the cage, 1 went in and 2 were drop ins (from about 110'-120') and the trend has continued on the course.

Hola, my amigos!! Here we are again. I have ran into another dilemma (okay, it's not that serious) lately I have been trying to learn how to power grip my putters and it's not easy for me. So I traded and got my P3X's back for straight shallow putters and have been eyeballing and reconsidering the chief OS, also the breaker for OS duties. I ask you, my fellow DGCR residents, what are your experiences with these molds? Maybe I will figure out the power grip and continue to throw what I have (I really do love my putter line-up as of now).... Oh, the woes.

Try the Envy or the Atom. The Breaker's beefy but won't stay that way. Just grab a Zone.

Breaker stays beefy in premium, or at least mine have. It's noticeably thinner than the p3x

Mine hit its sweet spot faster than I expected. Pro Line plastic. It's a great mold.
