The disc golf archaeologists over at Infinite Discs have been searching for the holy grail of putters, one that is reliable for driving, approaching, and putting, regardless of weather conditions. They assured me that this is one tomb you’re safe to raid. Read on to hear the results of our expedition.
Infinite Discs says this about their putter:
“The TOMB is a flat-topped, low-profile, putt-and-approach disc with a comfortable beaded rim. The Tomb has just the right amount of stability to cover ground while threading the needle on approach shots, whether thrown forehand or backhand. It can also be used as a crossover mid-range, driving putter, or to hold the line while putting during windy rounds. “
Available plastics: D-Blend, S-Blend
Flight Rating: 3, 4, 0, 1
Infinite Discs Tomb – Feel
If a Colt and a Rat had a baby, well, nevermind. Rumor has it that the Tomb is the bottom of an Innova Colt and the top of the Innova Rat, which makes it feel like a deeper version of the Colt. As shown in the profile picture below, the disc has a flat top, a blunt nose, and a bead.
Infinite Discs Tomb – Flight
On a full power throw from a tee box, the Tomb turns a little for me. Not enough that I’m worried about losing it but enough to get some extra distance. This performance reminds me a lot of the Axiom Discs Envy that has been one of my favorite driving putters since its release. Just like the Envy, the Tomb offers solid performance on both anhyzer and hyzer throws. You won’t get a huge turnover or a major hyzer spike out of it, but it will hold the line enough to get you around obstacles.
Powered down, the Tomb flies rather straight and offers predictable approach performance. The fade tends to be a forward pushing fade, so rather than dumping out of the air it will continue to get a few extra feet of distance before settling to the ground. Our grass is rather long and thick at this point in the year so I can’t tell if this approach disc has a tendency to skip but my gut reaction tells me not usually.
Since this is technically a putter and we are the Puttheads, I’ll at least mention my putting experience with the Tomb. The longer putts fade as expected. If I were to use an understable putter as my primary putter, the Tomb would be a great complement for putting in the wind. It also offers a little more glide than I expected, making it useful for those longer putts. This was my favorite use for the Colt as well.
Infinite Discs Tomb – Comparison
Here are some other driving putters I found comparable to the Tomb
- Innova Rat – Very similar flight and distance to the Rat
- Innova Colt – A little more overstable than the Colt
- Axiom Envy – Flies similar to an Envy
- Discraft Roach – Lower profile and has less turn than the Roach
- Infinite Discs Myth – Faster with a straighter flight path than the Myth
Infinite Discs Tomb – Conclusion
Overall I like the feel and flight of the Tomb better than the Rat and the Colt. I’ve been a huge fan of the Envy (who hasn’t?) and my only issue with Axiom’s best disc was rectified when they released it in base plastic offering better grip in cold and wet weather. Really, the fact that the Tomb is comparable to the Envy is quite an honor, especially given it’s lower price tag. If you need a stable and consistent approach disc that doubles as a driving putter, the Tomb is worth a look.
