Just like the original P1, the P1X's flight characteristic is very straight at high speeds. The medium-sized bead was added to bring a level of comfort and trust to the putter line that fans of a beaded putter were missing. The bead also helps the disc keep its flight characteristics for a longer period of time as it wears in. The P1X is ideal for a putter and it works great as an approach disc. This is one of the truest flying putters out there. We recommend this disc to any Aviar lover due to its super consitent flight. Great for a beginner or a well-seasoned pro.
