New Disc Releases – March 31, 2022
On this day, Thursday, March 31, 2022 there are a handful of new disc releases. These new molds are pretty sweet. I’m pretty excited about all of these things.
Infinite Discs Alpaca
The Splatter S-Blend Alpaca is now available. Though it isn’t a new mold, this is a new plastic blend for the Alpaca. If you’ve thrown the Alpaca, you know, it is quite capable. It is a favorite putt & approach discs of mine. It works well putting as well as for driving and approach throws. The stability is quite manageable and allows the disc to be so versatile, I love the disc. The Splatter S-Blend Alpaca offers a great durable plastic.
The Alpaca is the quintessential beadless putter. While the Infinite Discs Cohort has a somewhat low profile rim, the Alpaca presents a deeper rim for more of a traditional putter feel. Whether thrown at the basket or lofted high for approaches and drives, the Alpaca will carry your workload with ease.
Finish Line Era
The Finish Line Era is officially available. If you haven’t had a chance to throw this disc, you know that it is pretty sweet. This is quite the manageable distance driver, providing some good glide and decent turn with a healthy fade. It flies well for me and I can shape the lines to my needs. The Forged plastic feels nice, it is definitely different than any of the other plastics currently on the market. It seems to hold up pretty well too, not too much damage that I’ve seen from my playing with it.
The Era is the first disc in Drew Gibson’s Finish Line. This disc is designed to be the all purpose control driver for players of all skill level.
With a flat top and neutral flight path the Era works well for both backhand and forehand throws. It is understable enough to work for newer players, but has enough stability that it can handle the power of Drew Gibson. The Era has enough speed and glide to go as far as many distance drivers, but has minimal fade for the straight flight of a fairway.
Prodigy Signature Line Discs

I have an old S-line P2, its crazy how deeper that mold is. It’s all around a very different feel. Do these have a similar depth and feel in the hand as the P and D blend alpacas? I know this is different from person to person but just asking for a general answer. Thanks!
The splatter s-blend the depth feels quite similar to the D/P-Blend to me.
