I’m always on the hunt for new putters to test out on my practice basket (it’s kind of an addiction).
That’s why I was excited to try out the Infinite Discs Alpaca, a putter that has been generating a lot of buzz in my San Francisco disc golf league lately.
Surprisingly, the Alpaca quickly became one of my go-to discs, and I am not currently bagging two. In this review, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the Alpaca based on my personal experience, as well as the feedback from some of my league buddies. (Hi Brandon!)

The Alpaca is available in multiple plastic blends to cater to different preferences and conditions. Here are some of the available options that are usually in stock:
- D-Blend: The most affordable option, provides good grip and medium stiffness. Offers great performance for close-range shots and putting.
- X-Blend: Slightly more expensive and typically has a “puddle top” design. Offers a unique feel and excellent grip. Provides consistent flight characteristics and works well in different weather conditions.
- P-Blend: Similar to KC Pro plastic, this blend is slightly more flexible and less chalky. Provides good grip and durability. Performs well in various temperatures and weather conditions. This is the plastic I currently use.
The Alpaca is suitable for players of all skill levels. Beginners will appreciate its forgiving flight and easy control, while more experienced players will enjoy its consistency, versatility, and in-hand feel.
The flight of the Alpaca is described by many as straight with a gentle fade at the end. It holds its line well and has a predictable finish, making it ideal for both putting and throwing. The glide is incredible, allowing for longer putts and controlled upshots. It is everything you would want in a putting putter.
The Alpaca has a comfortable feel in the hand, with a slightly deeper profile compared to some other putters (feels kinda like a P2). This makes it an excellent choice for players with bigger hands who prefer a beadless design. The plastic blends offer different levels of grip and flexibility, allowing players to choose the feel that suits their preferences.
If you’re considering the Alpaca, here are some other discs you might want to try:
- Innova Aviar: A classic putter used by many professional disc golfers. It has a similar flight and feel to the Alpaca.
- Discmania P2: Known for its reliable flight and versatility, the P2 is another popular choice for putters.
- Latitude 64 Pure: Offers a straight flight with minimal fade and a shallow profile, making it a great option for both putting and throwing.
