The Whale is the next putter up in Innova’s recent trend of torque resistant discs. How is it different than the company’s flagship putter, the Aviar?
“The Whale is a beefy, Aviar-like Putter that has the stability of our Big-Bead Aviar Driver with nearly the same low-speed over stability as our Putt and Approach.”
Available plastics: DX, XT
Flight Rating: 2 speed, 3 glide, 0 turn, 1 fade
The Whale does feel a lot like an Aviar with a tiny bead. The XT plastic is flexible and chalky. The disc feels very beefy with a thick rim and blunt nose. This feels very similar to the Discmania P1x.

All in all, the Innova Whale won’t replace my Judge as a putter. The softer plastic and a rim depth like the Aviar makes it an inconsistent putter inside the circle for me. That said, the Whale is a great disc for someone who wants a consistent driving putter. I’d also recommend the Whale to anyone looking for a thick feeling, straight flying putter for approaches and drives.
