Discmania P2 Psycho Putter Review

Discmania P2 Psycho

The P2 Psycho by Discmania shows up in several pro’s bags, and that’s enough to pique our interest.  In fact, Discmania’s P2 putter was Infinite Discs’ top selling putter of 2017!

Discmania’s Notes on the P2 Psycho

“The P2 is significantly more stable than its older brother the P1. Targeted especially for pro-players the P2 works great for wrist-putts and fade-in shots inside and outside the circle. Due to it’s stability the P2 works great for approaches and can even tackle strong headwinds. It is also a very consistent driving putter.”

P2 Putter Initial Reactions

The first thing I noticed with this putter is the rim depth – possibly the deepest putter we’ve tested.  The top is not domey, but not flat either.

P2 Putting Notes

The rim depth makes the Discmania P2 Psycho very difficult for me to push putt, but it wasn’t designed for that. Spin putting yielded a better result, but still inconsistent for me as I have trouble getting my fingers out of the way of the deep rim.  This would be considered more of a fade-in putter as the overstability exhibits itself inside the circle.

The P2 does offer wind resistance for spin putting and has a decently hard fade so it becomes a safe option for many professional disc golfers.  We’ve heard disc golfers compare Discmania’s P2 to Gateway’s Wizard, and we feel that this is a fair comparison but the P2 has slightly less fade and slightly less glide which may make it a little slower and more controllable near the edge of the circle.

Discmania P2 Upshots

The P2 really shines off the tee or from a longer approach. Having a putter that will take some decent power is always useful. I can give this disc a near full power throw and watch it travel a little to the right and reliably fade back. The hyzer line is very nice too, as the putter doesn’t tend to stand up flat for very long. I threw several nice anhyzer flex shots that traveled further and yielded a useable S-curve. One thing to note, the P2 sits down in the grass very quickly with little to no skip or bounce.

Comparing the Discmania P2 and the P3, the P3 has a shallow rim, feels like a midrange, and is more overstable.  The P2 is definitely a putter shape with a deeper rim and is less overstable.

Discmania P2 Final Verdict

Pros seem to like the P2 Psycho but I don’t trust myself with such a deep rim. I think there are better overstable putter options for the weekend disc golfer but it offers a good deal of consistency and you may like the deep rim if you have larger hands or are accustomed to a full fan grip for putting.
