Just got my Daily Grind Infinity rear guard in the mail today. These are releasing at the end of next month but I got hooked up since I dented in my LT after only a few sessions on it. My first thoughts are- WOW!!! Its designed beautifully to be lightweight and still offer superior protection. It is made from chromoly and is thin in some places and thick where needed. Its also much thinner on the base so it fits perfectly between your hub's bearing hardware and your frame dropout without the need to spread your frame. It is MUCH shallower than the LT. It fits on my Gsport Ratchet with no washers at all, where as the LT required THREE washers to barely keep it off of my spokes. It is a little bit wider and gives better spoke protection especially for large flanged hubs like mine. The LT was the same size as my hub flange so it offered little to no spoke protection.
The Infinity features somewhat of a buldged design. The inner walls bulge out to make it REALLY thick where needed but really thin where unnecessary. I would estimate at the peak of the buldge the guard is around 6-7.5mm thick, at the bottom of the guard (near the base) around 3-3.5mm thick, and the top of the guard (closest to your spokes) around 5-6mm thick with around a 7-8mm "shelf" that goes around the entire top of the guard.
it is BEEFY but barely weighs more than the LT due to its buldge design and its shallowness. Its definitely a piece of fine work and I look forward to putting it to the test. There is not a single doubt in my mind about this guard. It will most definitely be the last one I own.

Is the axle slot area too thin? I think they could've just left it beefed up, but that could cause spacing problems. Still, I think it could be a tiny bit more thicker.

Nah its perfect. Thick enough but not too thick. The base of the LT was unnecessarily thick. Mind you its a chromoly guard.

Do you think it would fit the Odyssey antigram with no spacers

Antigram has the same spacing as the Ratchet so yes.

The wasp hub uses a shemale axle so the guard would take up all the space on the axle nub and then you would have to run a peg adapter inbetween your dropout and axle bolt. Technically it would but its really not a good idea. Look into the Animal PYN guard, theyre supposed to be releasing chromoly sleeves for it soon and it will work on the Wasp by replacing the non drive side hardware.

Imo running pegs on a 3/8 rear hub is stupid to begin with, I would look into a new hub.
