TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – APRIL 16TH 2019

Infinite Discs is happy to present another Top 20 Tuesday chart, looking back at the discs that sold the most during the last week. We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle position. It can be fun to see which discs keep up the pace.

Here we go…

Top Twenty Tuesday for April 16th, 2019

#1 – ESP KONG
#2 – Swirly Star EAGLE
#3 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#4 – Star CORVETTE
#5 – D-Line P2
#6 – Star DESTROYER
#7 – Active Baseline GUARDIAN LION
#8 – Signature C-Line Colored Glow FD2
#9 – ESP BUZZZ
#10 – Active Baseline SUN CROW
#11 – Active Baseline FOX SPIRIT
#12 – Jawbreaker Glo ZONE
#13 – Champion Colored Glow FIREBIRD
#14 – Signature ESP BUZZZ
#15 – Z Color Shift BUZZZ
#16 – ESP COMET
#17 – Elite Z RAPTOR
#18 – Active Baseline SPRING OX
#19 – Full Foil Super Color NUKE
#20 – Champion FIREBIRD

The KONG held onto the #1 spot this week and it will be interesting to watch how long it can hold onto that position…probably for as long as the inventory is available for the prototype run. Coming in at the #2 spot was the new signature Gregg Barsby Swirly Star EAGLE which came into stock and sold out quickly at Infinite Discs. The LUNA putter held the #3 spot with the new Star CORVETTE taking #4. The Corvette sales were boosted by a 2-foil limited edition that was released by Innova.

Also note the presence of all but one of the new Active Baseline discs by Discmania. The GUARDIAN LINE was the highest on the chart at #7, with the SUN CROW at #10, FOX SPIRIT at #11, and the SPRING OX at #18.  The remaining disc in that new line is the SEA SERPENT, which would have come in at #21 (just missed the chart by a one disc margin).

It is also interesting to see that the BUZZZ mid-range by Discraft took three spots on this week’s chart, with the Signature ESP edition, regular ESP edition, and the Z Color Shift Ledgestone edition as well. Here is how the brands stacked up this week when counting the number of times their discs appeared on the chart, with only three brands dominating all the spots:

–> Each week we’ll invite you to leave a prediction for a certain chart position on next week’s TOP TWENTY TUESDAY report. The person to predict that chart position correctly in the comments will win a $10 gift card for the Infinite Discs website.

WINNER – The #10 spot this week was the Active Baseline SUN CROW, one of the new base plastic discs by Discmania.  There were some good guesses, including somebody who guessed the Swirly Star Eagle which hadn’t been released yet (very good forward-looking guess!) but nobody seems to have seen those Active Baseline discs coming. Keep in mind that you have a good chance of guessing right if you pick something that you know is coming up soon.

GIFT CARD PREDICTION FOR NEXT WEEK:  Leave your comment below this blog to predict the #3 spot for next week’s chart. Remember to think about what new disc releases might spike!

Tiger Woods Just Won The Masters–What Does That Mean for Disc Golf?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock over the last couple of days, you probably heard something about Tiger Woods winning The Masters at Augusta National on Sunday. He entered the final round two strokes behind the leader and fought to shoot -2 for the day which was just enough to win his 5th green jacket.

But isn’t this a disc golf blog? Why are we talking about “ball” golf (or as the rest of the world knows it: “golf”)? Disc golf is better than that sport, so we shouldn’t even care about what Tiger Woods or any other ball golfer does, right? Ball golf is dying, and disc golf is thriving, right?

Well, that last question is exactly where Tiger Woods winning his 15th career major and his first in over a decade becomes interesting for disc golfers and disc golf as a sport. But first of all, for those who unlike me became a disc golfer without any prior affiliation with ball golf, let’s take a quick crash course on Tiger Woods.

If you want to know more, any google search right now should lead you to a variety of articles about Woods and his historic comeback to the top flight of a sport that he single-handedly revolutionized at the turn of the century. Personally, I’d recommend this article from ESPN if you want a little more info than what I am giving here. But basically, Tiger Woods is the undisputed GOAT of golf. He was so dominant in his heyday, that golf courses were literally renovated just to make them harder for him (they called it, “Tiger-proofing”). He was even considered by some to be the greatest athlete of all time regardless of sport. After becoming the youngest to win a major in 1997, he shattered record after record playing at a level that you had to see to believe.

Sunday afternoons in my house were all about watching Tiger Woods. If there was a family dinner at my grandparents’ home, Tiger Woods was always on in the background. He was an American icon, and his influence is definitely part of why I played golf and now play disc golf.

And I wasn’t the only one. Some say that Tiger Woods caused a “golf bubble” (we will use that term more later) bringing an unprecedented number of new fans and players to the sport. Nike created Nike Golf pretty much just for Tiger Woods. Sales were up, the sport’s popularity was up, and there was no sign of that changing. Tiger was the icon and the soul of the sport as he dominated for the better part of a decade.

And then as Tiger fell, so did golf. In 2009 Tiger was involved in a car crash that started the ball rolling in a very public and humiliating divorce. Around the same time, his body started to show signs of wear and tear resulting in multiple surgeries and very little golf. After knee and back operations, his body was not the same, and in many ways he had to completely relearn how to play. He’d come back for an event or two just to miss the cut or drop out early due to injury, and then announce he’d undergo another procedure.

Pretty much every sports analyst online and on TV predicted his career was over. We would never see Tiger compete at the highest level again. The human body just couldn’t come back after everything he’d been through.

And in the meantime, Tiger wasn’t the only one not playing golf. And we as disc golfers are pretty aware of this. Over the years I have seen many disc golfer Facebook friends share many reports about the decline of golf in America and the world. These articles have been used as an attempt to advocate for disc golf courses being added to golf properties in order to make up for the low numbers of golfers hitting the links.

Mulligans Disc golf Course - home of the Utah Open

And in many ways it has worked! We have seen lots of disc golf courses pop up on the same property as ball golf courses. Popular ones include the Emporia Country Club course used during the Glass Blown Open in Emporia, Kansas, Wildhorse Golf Club used for the Las Vegas Challenge, and one of my personal favorite local courses, Mulligan’s Golf Course in Marriott-Slaterville, Utah. The latter is used during the Utah Open and will be featured during the 2020 PDGA World Championships. Mulligan’s was on the brink of shutting down, and disc golf helped resurrect the 9-hole golf course that is adjacent to Toad’s Fun Center.

One of the more popular articles shared in disc golf circles since its publication in 2014 has been 5 Reasons Why Golf Is in a Hole featured by Money Magazine. The first four reasons we talk about all the time as disc golfers–We’re too busy! Golf takes too long. Golf is elitist and expensive. Golf isn’t really that cool. And golf is just too hard! These are all reasons disc golfers will use to try and convince their friends as to why disc golf is better.

And frankly, they are the reasons why I even started playing disc golf. I loved the game of golf. I loved the mental challenge and idea of the sport. But it was hard to find time in my schedule for 18 or even 9 holes at my local course. My clubs were expensive, and green fees were ridiculous. Also, I wasn’t that great of a golfer! I knew I could get better with more practice, but in order to practice I had to take the time and pay the money to go out and play.

And then my friends introduced me to disc golf, and it was so easy for me to get hooked. Our local park didn’t have any fees, plastic discs are way cheaper than golf clubs, and I could finish 9 holes in less than 30 minutes. It was everything I loved about golf minus all the things I didn’t care for in the sport.

But Money’s article has a fifth reason, and it is the reason that we disc golfers have just kind of ignored when discussing the decline in golf. We’d rather focus on the reasons that appeal to our logic and sensibility. But this 5th reason gets at people’s passion and heart. Maybe we haven’t talked about it as much because something in us knew–improbable as it may be–that this reason could change. This problem with golf maybe wasn’t necessarily a permanent one. What was that final reason that golf has been struggling?

Yep. Tiger Woods.

“Skeptics insist that golf isn’t dying. Not by a long shot. The sport’s popularity, they say, is merely taking a natural dip after soaring to unjustified heights during the “golf bubble” brought on by the worldwide phenomenon that was Tiger Woods.”

Wait, golf isn’t dying?! Disc golf isn’t replacing it? Those multi-million dollar purses on the PGA tour aren’t going to shift over to the PDGA in a few years?

But what about all the golf courses closing and needing disc golf to come in and save them?

Again, from the Money article, “So perhaps it’s not so much that golf is losing favor with the masses today as it is that golf’s widespread popularity a decade or so ago was something of a fluke…Golf courses were overbuilt, saturating major cities and secondary markets with ridiculous golf hole per capita ratios.”

So if anything, this is a bit of a reality check for our hopes and dreams for the growth of disc golf. Maybe golf wasn’t ever really going anywhere besides back to normal popularity levels over the last few years. I’m sure I haven’t been the only one who has thought that maybe once golf dies off in the next decade or two, society’s demand for disc golf will grow to such a place where disc golf will just slide in and take it’s place. But if these years have really just been the backside of the Tiger Woods “golf bubble,” it doesn’t bode well for disc golf’s future as a mainstream sport.

That future may have also taken another blow this weekend. Because Tiger’s story didn’t end with the humiliating divorce and what should have been career ending injuries. He fought back over and over again, showing a resilience pretty much nobody knew he had. He finished the 2018 season with a few strong finishes including winning the 2018 Tour Championship.

But he had his eyes set on something even bigger–he wanted another major, specifically The Masters. Another quick note for those unfamiliar to golf–The Masters is arguably the golf equivalent of the PDGA World Championships. It is the most prestigious event in golf.

So as Tiger Woods hung around the top of the leaderboard all weekend, it wasn’t just his old fans who started to cheer for him. It wasn’t just Americans who love a great comeback story who started pulling for him. The entire sport of golf and any individual or company who has a vested interest in golf’s future wanted Tiger to win on Sunday. I guarantee that every golf equipment and apparel company was hoping Tiger would beat out any other pro that they sponsored. Every golf course owner and sports equipment store was cheering for Tiger. Why?

Because if you have watched the Masters every year for the last 5 or so years (like I have), then you know that you have never seen or heard a crowd like the one at Augusta National on April 14, 2019. The “Tiger roars” were back, and some say they were even bigger than they had ever been before. When Tiger tapped in that final putt, the collective golf world erupted. Their champion and hero was back.

Does that mean that they will be back on their local courses as well? Will we see a second Tiger golf bubble form? I know that is the hope and dream of every golf company.

And should it be the nightmare of every disc golfer? Maybe. It is hard to say. As I watched those final holes at Augusta on Sunday, the kid in me was hoping Tiger would pull it off, but the cynical disc golfer in me was hoping to see him choke. Because if Tiger is back, then golf could very well be back as well.

But maybe disc golf doesn’t have to be at odds with Tiger and the golfing world. Maybe we can coexist within each others’ spheres. I could spend a whole different article talking about how disc golfers think that golfers are rude, uppity rich folks who think they are too good for our sport; and how golfers think that disc golfers are a bunch of uncultured pot heads who need to get out of the parks and go find a real job. But maybe it doesn’t have to be that way.

Because as much as I love golf, I have learned that disc golf is my true “golf” calling in life. So when I saw Tiger’s return and felt that tug on my heart, it didn’t send me looking for my old golf clubs.

It sent me to the disc golf course.

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – APRIL 9TH 2019

Infinite Discs is happy to present another Top 20 Tuesday chart, looking back at the discs that sold the most during the last week. We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle position. It can be fun to see which discs keep up the pace.

Here we go…

Top Twenty Tuesday for April 9th, 2019

#1 – ESP KONG
#2 – Fuzion RAIDER
#3 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#4 – Star DESTROYER
#5 – D-Line P2
#6 – Metal Flake C-Blend RA
#7 – Signature ESP BUZZZ
#8 – Nexus AVIAR DRIVER
#9 – Star CORVETTE
#10 – Jawbreaker Glo ZONE
#11 – Champion Colored Glow FIREBIRD
#12 – ESP COMET
#13 – Elite Z RAPTOR
#14 – Classic GUARD
#15 – C-Blend RA
#16 – Star WRAITH
#17 – ESP BUZZZ
#18 – ESP Glo BUZZZ
#19 – I-Blend X-Out EMPEROR
#20 – DX AVIAR

With a big restock of Discraft KONG discs hitting the Infinite Discs website, that disc rocketed to the top of the chart again, demolishing all of the competition. The 2nd place disc was the new first run Fuzion RAIDER by Dynamic Discs, and in all honesty, the sales of that disc would have been higher if we’d been prepared and had more of them in stock. The anticipation for the Raider was higher than we expected. The LUNA putter took 3rd place, pushing last week’s #1 Destroyer back to #4.

Other honorable mentions go to the Infinite Discs RA which had a stock release and was on sale for the weekend, pushing it to #6 in Metal Flake C-Blend, and to #15 in C-Blend plastic.  The newest putter from Dynamic Discs, the GUARD also stands out at #14.

There were also two Ledgestone special edition discs from Discraft that pushed into the chart this week: the Jawbreaker Glo ZONE jumped in at the #10 spot while the ESP Glo BUZZZ took the #18 spot. The special edition ESP COMET stamp released by Infinite Discs pushed that mid-range to the #12 position, giving Discraft the edge again with number of times on the chart for this week:

–> Each week we’ll invite you to leave a prediction for a certain chart position on next week’s TOP TWENTY TUESDAY report. The person to predict that chart position correctly in the comments will win a $10 gift card for the Infinite Discs website.

WINNER – The #4 spot this week was the Star Destroyer as it was pushed back by the hot-selling Kong, Luna, and new Raider. The first to guess Star Destroyer, according to comment time stamps, was JACK.  A few other guesses came in for Star Destroyer, but Jack was the first, so congratulations!

Top Selling Discs–Q1 of 2019

The weather is warming up, Spring has sprung, and the 2019 disc golf season has begun! It’s April, which means it is time to once again take a look at our top selling discs of the first quarter! As we go through the top sellers, we will see a lot of changes from last quarter. Most of those changes can be traced back to one person…yep, Paul McBeth!

Top 10 Overall

  1. Innova Destroyer
  2. Discraft Buzzz
  3. Discmania P2 Psycho
  4. Innova Firebird
  5. Discraft Luna
  6. Discraft Zone
  7. Discraft Force
  8. Innova Wraith
  9. Infinite Discs Pharaoh
  10. Discmania FD Jackal/Dynamic Discs Judge

If you are still of the belief/delusion that Paul McBeth doesn’t influence sales numbers, hopefully looking at this overall top 10 and comparing it to all of the top 10 charts from last year will be enough to change your mind. Paul’s signature has been printed on over half of these discs at some point in time. While it isn’t unheard of for new releases to crack into the top 10, the Luna debuting at number 5 is very impressive. Also the Discraft Force has never been on this or the distance driver top 10 list. For what it’s worth, if March had been one day longer, we’d probably have another McBeth disc on this top 10 list (the Kong). So overall I think it is safe to say that Discraft has taken full advantage of adding Paul to their team so far. Discraft numbers are way up across the board here at Infinite Discs.

 

Top Distance Drivers

  1. Innova Destroyer
  2. Innova Firebird
  3. Discraft Force
  4. Innova Wraith
  5. Infinite Discs Pharaoh
  6. Innova Shryke
  7. Discraft Kong
  8. Innova Valkyrie
  9. Innova Boss
  10. Innova Orc

The previously mentioned new Discraft Kong made it all the way to number 7 on the distance driver chart after selling out in just a few hours on its release date. I think it will be interesting to see how the Force and the Kong perform in sales throughout the rest of the year since McBeth mostly used one distance driver with Innova–the Destroyer. Of course, that might be the key–how much McBeth uses either disc. Beyond the new Discraft additions, it is mostly more of the same for the distance driver category this quarter.

Top Control/Fairway Drivers

  1. Discmania FD Jackal
  2. Discraft Undertaker
  3. Innova Teebird
  4. Innova Thunderbird
  5. Innova Leopard3
  6. Axiom Insanity
  7. Innova Leopard
  8. Innova Roadrunner
  9. Innova TeeBird3
  10. Dynamic Discs Escape

Last quarter I mentioned that the Discraft Undertaker surprised me by cracking into the top 10 at the number 9 spot. Well, it made another big jump this quarter finishing as the number 2 fairway driver. The big surprise this quarter is the Axiom Insanity coming in at number 6. The high sales numbers this quarter are primarily because of the special release Axiom did for their new Prism plastic blend. We also see the Innova TeeBird3 cracked back into the top 10.

Top Midrange Discs

  1. Discraft Buzzz
  2. Innova Roc3
  3. Innova Roc
  4. Innova Mako3
  5. Dynamic Discs EMac Truth
  6. Discraft Comet
  7. Discmania MD3
  8. Discraft Buzzz OS
  9. Infinite Discs Anubis
  10. Kastaplast Gote

The top 7 on this chart is pretty business as usual with only a couple of small shifts from last quarter’s top 10. But the last 3 are all new names to this list, or they at least haven’t been on the list for a while (looking at you Discraft Buzzz OS). One of the biggest surprises of this whole article for me is the newly released Kastaplast Gote finishing as the 10th best selling midrange. New releases have a tendency of making surprise appearances in these top charts, but this might be the first Kastaplast mold to crack into a top 10, which may be an indication that the small Swedish disc manufacturer is continuing to grow into the mainstream.

Top Putt and Approach Discs

  1. Discmania P2 Psycho
  2. Discraft Luna
  3. Discraft Zone
  4. Dynamic Discs Judge
  5. Axiom Envy
  6. Innova Aviar
  7. Dynamic Discs Warden
  8. Gateway Wizard
  9. Westside Harp
  10. Dynamid Discs Deputy

There aren’t too many surprises here besides the two Discraft molds making such a big jump up the charts. The Dynamic Discs Deputy made it back into the top 10 after not making it last quarter. Also the Westside Harp is the lowest it has been ever since making the top 10 if I remember right. It will be interesting to see how the Harp performs throughout the year now that Ricky Wysocki is not throwing it and Paul McBeth is throwing a similar mold in the Discraft Zone.

And that’s all we have for this quarter! What will the next 3 months of sales look like? Was there anything that surprised you this quarter? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Dave Feldberg Blog Post #1

Dave Feldberg Blog

So I have decided to have a blog this season , but I am not sure I can type up everything going on in my life. This has been one of the most eventful years of my life and I can barely come up for air.

Welcome Leomax Feldberg #22626

On a personal level Synthya and I had our first child Leomax Feldberg #22626 on 2/18/19. He is a blessing and very healthy. We are so lucky to have him in our life and are looking forward to watching him grow and sharing many great experiences. Synthya and I bought a house where we have no relatives or close friends near by and so we are doing this ourselves and she has been a rockstar to say the least.

Next Gen Tour 2019

On a business level Next Generation Tour is having a banner year with the expansion of 10 disc manufacturers, 10 other new sponsors, a new NG team, relocating the National Championships, and partnering with Infinite Discs to make it all happen. We are seeing a lot of positivity out there and we are doing all we can to deliver the best amateur tour out there. It will only continue to get better. We have some big announcements coming!!!

Disc Golf an Honest Take Podcast

I have started my own podcast called “Disc Golf an Honest Take”. I will be reviewing existing products and new releases while covering a little NG and history of our game. The first one is in the editing stage and will be out very soon (hopefully Monday).

Tournament Schedule 2019

On a playing level I have decided with all that is going on, that I had to cut back on my schedule of events I compete in. I will still be competing at many of the larger events, but I will not be playing as often. Below is my proposed schedule for this season:

  • Super bowl scramble – 3rd place
  • Full Monty Doubles- Galloway as partner 1st place
  • Jonesboro PT
  • Huk Central A -tier
  • Trailblazer A Tier
  • Great Lakes Open PT
  • Pro Worlds Presented by Infinite Discs
  • Masters Worlds
  • Tim Selinske
  • USDGC
  • Delaware NT
  • Augusta NT Final
  • Linton Park Open – B-Tier
  • Sandy Creek Sling- C-tier

Building the Mixed Bag for 2019

It has been exciting to be able to throw any disc that I want to throw. There are so many choices out there nowadays it is incredible. Back in the day we had very few choices compared to today.

So I had to start somewhere. What I have done to start the season is take the Trilogy and Innova discs I loved for many years and picked out some solid choices. I stuck with the Sinus, BT Bard, XXX, and Ballista Pro. I brought back my Aviars, Rocs, Eagles, and Destroyers. That alone made my game stronger right away. Now I wanted to experiment with the other manufactures that are supporting the tour. So I have started by incorporating one new disc from each brand. Here is what I have so far.

Discraft – I am messing around with the Kong, Comet, Heat, Vulture, and Crank. They all fly well just trying to see where they fit my bag. I have added the Zone as I always wanted to throw that disc.

Prodigy– I have been testing almost all there molds and I have liked the D2 and D3 and found that the M3 is a good over-stable midrange. I have added the 300 A2 to my bag as this plastic feels feat and I love short over-stable flying discs.

MVP– I also tested many of there molds and found that the Resistor and the Octane are very good flying discs and the Resistor, I have having a hard time resisting. I have added a Mayhem to my bag as I like this distance driver. It is not over-stable or under-stable. It flies long and straight and I can make it fly almost any angle I want.

Gateway– I have been testing most of there line and the Apex and Illusions have stuck out as really consistent fliers that I can use between full high speed and fairway drivers. I have added a Diamond Prophecy to my bag as this is a really good Hyzer midrange that I throw fairly often.

Legacy– I just received their box of testers, but will say right out of the gate, that I am liking there new plastic, I will update Legacy more in the next blog.

DiscMania – I have tested a few of their discs in the beginning when I played for Innova. I am awaiting a box of testers, but I am excited to test the new Cloud and Instinct co branded Latitude fairway driver. I will update in my next blog.

Kastaplast– I have been testing most of their line of discs and I will say I was very impressed. The feel was great- shiny discs that were not slippery. I am looking forward to some rain to see if it performs as I think it will. The Kaxe was a unique mold I wanted to test and I found it to be the rare disc between a midrange and a fairway driver. I like the Stahl and it is in a final battle with the Mvp Resistor to see who makes the bag. I have added a Falk to my bag as it is a great late flip under-stable fairway driver that just seems to fit my game.

Infinite – last but not least I have been testing our discs often. I have found that the Myth putter is growing on me and that I like the plastic lines we make. I have added a glow metal Flake Pharaoh to my bag as this thing goes far, only about 5-10 feet less than a Corvette but feels like a Destroyer in my hand. I have also added a RA to my bag as this disc has this unique nova type flight where it doesn’t move to the left it just holds and then drops predictably. I am also starting to test my signature disc which will be a Splatter Emperor. I am excited as it has been described to me as an Eco – Destroyer which I like but don’t want to pay 100 or more dollars for.

So I think that is good for my first blog, now out to the field to test some more plastic!!!

Infinite Discs RA Release + All Weekend Infinite Discs SALE!

Introducing the Infinite Discs RA

 

We’re pleased to announce the newest midrange disc in our lineup, the Ra. The stock edition Ra is now available in C-Blend and Metal Flake C-Blend plastic, and to celebrate, we’ve created quite the deal for you!

 

But first, let’s talk about the Ra: The Infinite Discs Ra is a moderately overstable midrange with a very flat top and comfortable, beaded rim. It feels and flies perfectly for both backhand and forehand players. It is difficult to find a midrange that is so easy to control and so precise under multiple course conditions.

Now here’s the deal:

This weekend (4/5/19 – 4/8/19) we’re putting the entire Infinite Discs lineup on sale. This includes the new Ra, allowing you to try it for a discounted price. But wait, there’s more! If you use the discount code RARARA you’ll get an additional 10% off of your Ra!

If you need a new mid to try, today is the day!

Out of the hand, even when thrown with power (or torque) the Ra is quick and straight. As the Ra begins to slow, the fade kicks in. It is neither dumpy nor gradual…the “sweet spot” of fade. This disc is also great for forehand shots. – BigCountry83

The feel of the Ra is fantastic. I have always wanted to like the Roc family, but I despise the rim on them. Mixing the VRoc bottom on the Rocx3 top made for the perfect feel in this disc. The Ra is one of the best feeling midranges in my hands. – Jordan Miller

This a very controllable, stable mid-range, that can definitely fill a slot in your bag if you need a mid that can combine distance with dependable fade.  If you like Roc3-esque discs, this is for you. – BobbyGitr

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – APRIL 2nd 2019

We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle position. It can be fun to see which discs keep up the pace.

Here we go…

Top Twenty Tuesday for April 2nd, 2019

We saw a more “settled” chart during the last week as the Discraft KONG and LUNA vanished completely due to the fact that they completely sold out at Infinite Discs the week before. Now that we’re restocked, you can expect those to be right back in the chart next week.  So, the Star DESTROYER went back to number one, which is a familiar location for that disc. The Signature ESP Buzzz (McBeth edition) held a strong 2nd place with the new Colored Glow FD2 coming in a strong 3rd.

Other popular discs on the chart were the new Star CORVETTE, the Z RAPTOR (still holding on as a new release), the Origion Burst MAIDEN which has been a hot new putter for Westside Discs, and the new GATEKEEPER.  Other regulars came back on the chart, like the Star Wraith, Champion Firebird, etc.

Here is how the brands stacked up this last week in terms of number of times that they appeared on the chart:

–> Each week we’ll invite you to leave a prediction for a certain chart position on next week’s TOP TWENTY TUESDAY report. The person to predict that chart position correctly in the comments will win a $10 gift card for the Infinite Discs website.

WINNER – The #6 spot this week was the Star Wraith, making a strong comeback as a popular seller when it comes to drivers. Nobody picked the Star Wraith to quietly come back to the #6 spot, so nobody takes the gift card this week. But give this coming week a try!
