The Cohort is Infinite Discs’ fourth putter. It is a fast putter with a low-profile and small diameter great for long approach shots. ‘Cohort’ traditionally refers to a small ancient Roman military unit but I’m pretty sure Infinite named this putter for the data analytics understanding: A set of customers grouped by a common characteristic for the purpose of demographic analysis.
Infinite Discs Cohort Manufacturer Notes
Here’s how Infinite Discs describes their Cohort:
The Cohort is a unique putt-and-approach disc that is a great, beadless option for mid-range and approach shots with a comfortable rim for either backhand or forehand players. The revolution toward smaller-diameter discs for mid-range shots continues and the Cohort is stable enough to hold the line when thrown with confidence.

Infinite Discs Cohort Initial Reactions
The Cohort is fast, there’s no doubt about that. With a relatively sharp nose and a low profile, this putter will shoot out of your hand. The profile is low enough that it took me a little while to find a good grip but I settled on a spread fan grip. I felt as though the manufacturer flight rating was accurate out of the box except I might drop the glide to a 3, however the Cohort in both plastics broke in rather quickly to a -1 turn and noticeably increased in glide.

Infinite Discs Cohort Putting Notes
The Cohort is a relatively neutral putter, fairly straight with a little fade at the end so you can pretty much just toss at the right side of the basket. The Cohort’s speed enables long basket runs from well beyond the circle and it can be worked on pretty much any line. The speed of the Cohort can also help handle light wind, but it also has enough glide that stiffer winds will push it around.
The shape of the Cohort also handles just about any putting style, although it may not be as firm as you’d like for push putting. Its low profile feels a little like a Latitude 64 Pure or maybe a Gateway Warlock. The low profile combined with higher speed worked well for turbo putts. The pointed nose managed to slide through the chains and spit out on a few spin putts but I found that nose-down pitch putting mitigated this. Overall the Cohort is fine for putting but I found its strength to be drives and approaches.
Infinite Discs Corhort Upshot and Approaches
The speed and shape of the Cohort lend themselves nicely to an approach putter. The thin shoulder and beadless rim allow for a very smooth fangrip release which can handle a decent amount of torque. This profile shape also works well for light forehand shots or flick approaches.
When new, the Cohort is very straight, but both plastics broke in quickly to display turn. At 150 feet (45 meters) the Cohort is still straight but shows a gentle turn around 200 feet (60 meters). At full power the Cohort will show significant turn and is great for hyzer flips, but won’t dive unless thrown into a headwind.
Hyzer flip shots are perhaps the largest strenght of the Cohort. The turn is controllable and it likes to fade forward and consistently. It anhyzers decently but likes to pull out of anhyzer lines, whereas it tends to hold hyzer flip lines nicely. Its preferance to pull out of anhyzers offer precision s-curve lines and I even smashed chains from the tee once (sadly followed by a spit-out).
The speed and sharp nose make the Cohort a good choice for light wind. It has the ability to cut through a gentle breeze nose down or ride a breeze by exposing the flight plate. The Cohort will get thrown with heavier winds in which case I found it best to throw with a tailwind.
