Discmania Rainmaker Review: Precision and Control Disc

Hi there, fellow disc golfers! As an avid disc golfer, I know how searching for that perfect disc feels. One that – quite literally – just feels right. That, my friends, is where the beauty of Discmania Rainmaker caught my eye.

In the grandeur of my disc golf odyssey, it was about time I gave this fascinating piece its due attention for a formal Discmania Rainmaker review. Designed by pro disc golfer Eagle McMahon, it is already making waves in the disc golf community.

Will it be your next go-to putter? Can it meet your demands for control and precision? Let’s throw this disc through a gauntlet of tests to find out if it deserves a spot in your bag.

Decoding Flight Numbers: A Gold Among Approach Discs

  • Speed: 2
  • Glide: 3
  • Turn: 0
  • Fade: 0.5

The numbers were immediately noticeable when I first took the Rainmaker for a spin. This disc is not for power throwers looking for distance; with a speed of just 2, it’s more suited to short-range shots and finesse plays.

However, it stays aloft beautifully thanks to the glide rating of 3. It truly shines in its straight path.

With a turn and fade of 0 and 0.5, respectively, it’ll stay true to the direction you point it in, veering off ever so slightly as it loses power. Its predictability makes it a reliable addition to any disc golfer’s arsenal.

Take This Plastic For A Smooth Spin

  • Diameter: 21.20 cm
  • Height: 2.00 cm
  • Rim Depth: 1.50 cm
  • Rim Width: 1.10 cm

Having played with the Rainmaker, I found the dimensions aptly fitted to its intended use. The diameter of 21.20 cm is fairly standard, allowing for a comfortable grip and easy release.

I particularly appreciate the height of 2.00 cm, a slightly lower profile than most selections. This lower profile helps to reduce air resistance, contributing to the disc’s performance.

The 1.50 cm depth and 1.10 cm width might be a tad slim for some, but this combination works to the advantage of the Rainmaker. It allows for a smooth release and gives a natural feel, especially for those with smaller hands or those preferring a less aggressive grip.

Compared to other discs, it shines in its simplicity and user-friendly design. As part of Discmania’s Creator series, you can find it to be available in multiple color varieties to brighten up the day and night for any round.

Suitable For All Disc Golf Players

This is where the Rainmaker truly stands out. It was designed by none other than Eagle McMahon, one of the deadliest players on the putting green. This signature disc of his dreams wasn’t just made for pros. No, this disc suits an array of skill levels.

This disc also makes an incredible straight path. These traits make it ideal for both beginners looking for control and pros seeking precision.

While it does have a slightly shallower profile than the P2, it seems to fit comfortably in players’ hands. One reviewer noted that it fit their finger perfectly, even with slightly larger hands. This speaks highly to the versatility of this disc.

Whether you have smaller hands and prefer a less aggressive grip or have larger hands and need a disc, you can get a solid hold of, this seems to deliver.

The Color Glow D-Line Flex 3 version is also highly commended for being firm in hand and providing consistency from throw to throw. If you’re comfortable with a stiff putter, this could be an excellent addition to your bag!

Putt Your Limit To The Test

By design, the Rainmaker is a dedicated putter who excels at this job. The clever design principles implemented by pro player Eagle McMahon make this disc ideal for pointing and shooting.

Its characteristics make it an excellent choice for shots that require precision and control. Moreover, don’t be afraid to take this disc out of the green. It performs quite well for short and mid-range upshots.

Given its characteristics, this can be utilized for a variety of shot types:


With its zero turn and minimal fade, this can make those straight-line shots look effortless. Take it from me, there’s nothing quite like sinking a straighter putt with the Rainmaker.

Approach Shots

Its low speed makes it ideal for those approach shots where control is key. I once used it to softly park a 130-foot approach right next to the basket.

Hyzer Putts

One reviewer mentioned its stability and how it holds a slight hyzer well. Perfect for those times when you need a soft fade at the end of the disc’s flying path.

No two ways about it; this is a disc with multiple uses. It’s perfect for controlled, accurate games but not shy of delivering impressive short and mid-range throws. So whether you want to ‘rain-in’ those long putts or navigate those tricky approach shots, this is an indispensable ally!

Similar Discs

The Rainmaker has unique edges compared to other dedicated putters in the market. However, for those seeking alternatives, there are a few discs that share some similar traits.

Dynamic Discs Guard

The Guard is another putter with comparable stability. It, too, scores a low-speed rating, making it a good choice for control-focused disc golfers. But where the Rainmaker is a bit more shallow, the Guard has a deeper girth that might be more comfortable for larger hands or those who prefer a deeper grip.

Dynamic Discs Warden

The Warden is a beaded putter, offering a slightly different feel in the hand. Although it also has reliable glide and stability, the Warden tends to have a bit more fade, making it a more desirable choice for those who lean towards hyzer putts.

Storm Disc Golf Radar

The Radar is a stable putter known for its reliability. It assures a dependable flying path, perfect for precision putting and driving off the tee. With the Radar, you get an impressive multi-purpose disc that will seek out the chains, offering some competition to the Rainmaker’s versatile uses.

While other discs might offer similar characteristics, the Rainmaker’s low-profile design and flying attributes make it as reliable as putters get.
