Prodigy Ace Line Discs Now Available!

Prodigy Disc Ace Line Discs

Four new Prodigy discs are now available. These are still great discs designed by the pros at Prodigy, but there’s something slightly different about the newest Prodigy discs.

Introducing the Prodigy Ace Line

Up until now, all Prodigy discs were manufactured in the USA. Over the past several years Prodigy has invested in a new disc golf manufacturing facility overseas. The discs produced in the China factory are now known as Ace Line discs. Similar to the way that Discmania has their Yikun manufactured Active Line discs, Prodigy has now released four available Ace Line discs.

Overall, it appears that the Ace Line will allow you to purchase great Prodigy discs at an even lower price point.

What’s Different with Ace Line Discs

New Molds: The four released Prodigy Ace Line discs all feature new and different molds that vary from the existing Prodigy discs.

New Names: These discs feature a new naming system making it easy to know exactly how each disc will fly by simply reading the name.

The first letter in the Ace Line naming system signifies which kind of disc it is. There are four potential disc types:

  • D- Distance Driver
  • F- Fairway Driver
  • M- Midrange
  • P- Putter

After “Model” in each disc name the disc stability is stated. There are five different possible stabilities for each disc type:

  • US+ – Very Understable
  • US – Understable
  • S – Stable
  • OS – Overstable
  • OS+ – Very Overstable

New Plastics: The Ace Line will feature two different plastics. A base plastic, that doesn’t feel like base plastic, and a premium blend called Dura Flex. The four discs introduced with this initial release are currently only available in the Base Grip plastic. You can get this quality plastic for just $7.99 each right here at Infinite Discs.

The Ace Line Discs

Ace Line Three Disc SetThe initial release includes a distance driver, fairway driver, midrange, and putter. The fairway driver, mid, and putter are also available through a three disc starter set.

We took the discs out for a few test throws, check out our quick Ace Line disc reviews here.

D Model S

The D Model S is a high speed stable distance driver. This is disc is comparable with the Prodigy D3.

F Model S

The F Model S is is a stable flying thick rimmed fairway driver. This disc goes really far for a fairway driver.

M Model OS

The M Model OS is an overstable midrange. This is the only overstable model in the initial Ace Line release. We didn’t find the flight of this mid to be overly overstable and it is still a solid mid for players of all skill levels.

P Model S

The P Model S is a stable flyind midrange with a flat top and a small micro-bead around the bottom rim.

Will My Package Arrive By Christmas?

With Christmas drawing near, we have a lot of customers who want to know if their package will arrive by Christmas.

Our staff at Infinite Discs is doing all we can to ensure that your package will arrive by December 25th. All orders received by 4:30 PM MST, are shipped out the same day. With that said, we have to rely on the different parcel carriers for the actual delivery. Here are some guidelines for the last days you will want to order different items, if you want to make sure* they arrive before Christmas. Read this article if you’re looking for good Christmas Gift Ideas.

Small_PackageSmall Packages:

Safe Order Deadline to arrive by Christmas: Tuesday, December 17th.

Small packages (2 or less discs), towels, small accessories, mini’s, physical gift cards, etc. weighing less than 16oz will ship by USPS first class mail with a 2-5 day delivery. Assuming the worst with a 5 day delivery in most instances it will be less), unless you make a Priority mail upgrade you will want to make sure your order is in by 4:30 on Tuesday, December 17th, 2019.

With Priority Mail Upgrade

If you pay extra for the “Priority Upgrade” (2-3 day delivery), your likely safe date to receive by Christmas is extended two additional days to Thursday, December 19th. The package will most likely arrive in time if the order is placed early in the day by Friday as well, but if your order is made after 4:30 PM on the 20th, and you NEED it by Christmas, contact support@infinitediscs.com and we can give you a quote of what the cost will be for expedited shipping.

MediamPackage_5890Medium Sized Packages:

Safe Order Deadline without Priority Upgrade: Monday, December 16th

For medium sized packages 3-11 discs and economy bags, we usually ship Fed Ex Ground within the United States. Depending on your proximity to Utah, and the size of your package, these packages may also go USPS Priority Mail.  Orders received by 4:30 on Monday, December 16th, should arrive by Christmas. To be on the safe side in case of errors or inclement weather, you may want to pay the $3.50 charge for the Priority Mail upgrade to ensure a more speedy delivery. Medium packages with a Priority upgrade will likely arrive by Christmas if placed by 4:30 PM on December 19th.

If your order is made after December 19th, and you NEED it by Christmas, contact support@infinitediscs.com and we can give you a quote of what the cost will be for express delivery.

Large Packages

Safe Order Deadline: Friday, December 13th

IMG_5887Large packages including baskets, large backpacks, and 11+ discs are typically shipped by Fed Ex or UPS ground, which can take up to a week to arrive depending on your location and proximity to Utah. It’s also important to know that many of these products are drop shipped directly from the manufacturer, who may not process your order as quickly as we do in house. If you want a large package to arrive by Christmas, you’ll likely be fine if your order is in by December 17th, but to be safe, you’ll want them in by 2:00 on Friday the 13th.

Unless you want to specifically arrange to pay a small fortune for expedited shipping, make sure you have them in early. Large packages are not eligible for our $3.50 priority upgrade. When this option is selected for large orders it only gives you expedited processing. Shipping large packages overnight or priority mail can literally cost you hundreds of dollars. If you need an expedited order for a large package, contact support@infinitediscs.com for a quote on your different shipping options.

International Orders

Safe Order Deadline: It Might Be Too Late

If you want something internationally, it might already be too late to get to you by Christmas. For international shipping we use DHL Parcel International Standard which usually arrives to Canada and Europe within one week, but not always. So if you order before December 13th there is a good chance you will receive it by Christmas, but there is no guarantee.

If you’re too late for a disc golf Christmas gift, There is always next year right? Or, consider a Happy New Year gift… But you don’t really need a reason to give somebody a great disc golf gift do you?

Gift Cards

Deadline to Arrive By Christmas: December 25th

The safest bet (and arguably the best Christmas gift for an avid disc golfer) is an E-Gift card. An email gift card code will be sent to you (or directly to the recipient) within seconds. The other nice thing about an electronic gift card is that you can personalize it any way you want. Print it up and put it in a card or a picture with an original poem you wrote, or a picture of yourself. Who doesn’t like a personalized gift? Or to make things super simple, just email the code directly to the recipient.

Overnight Shipping?

Safe Order Deadline: Nonexistent

What if I wait until the week of Christmas to make my order? Overnight and rushed 2 day shipping options are available, but these can get pricey and there are no promises on delivery time. This is not a safe option, however, if you would like to give it a try, email or call us before you make the order. The shipping price on these are determined case by case. Again, at this point, the best ordering option may be a gift card.

*In rare instances (less than 1% of all orders), packages get misplaced or lost by the individual carriers, or bad weather slows pickup or delivery, and packages do not arrive by the estimated time frame. We cannot guarantee that any package will actually arrive by Christmas.

Introducing the Big Jerm Concrete Slab

Are you looking for an ultra beefy utility driver that helps support one of your favorite disc golf pros/commentators?

Check out the all new Jeremy Koling Concrete Slab.

The Concrete Slab is a very slim driver with a low profile, flat top, and extremely overstable flight. It is the kind of utility driver that comes in very handy for very specific needs on the course. When you need a flat-top, overstable disc to slice through the wind and still fade hard, then this is the crazy OS disc that you’re looking for. If you want to throw a huge hyzer and have the disc fall out of the sky and tombstone into the ground, then this is your disc. If you’re looking for monster skips on low high power throws or like to chuck overhand across the fairway with precision accuracy, this is the disc for you.

So why is it called the Concrete Slab? The Jomez coverage of the 2019 Waco Open should answer that question for you.

The artwork for this limited edition signature stamp was created by Jeremy Koling himself. Proceeds from the sales of the Concrete Slab go to help Jeremy on tour.

Hot Disc Brands of 2019

When Paul McBeth announced his change of sponsors from Innova to Discraft at the end of 2018 we knew it would have an impact on the buyer behavior of die hard disc golfers. Many scoffed at the million dollar contract and wondered how Discraft could afford to pay a professional disc golfer that much money.

After looking at our sales numbers for the first half of the year 2019, it appears that Paul McBeths brand value for disc sales may have been underestimated. When it comes to “hot brands of 2019,” among the major players, Discraft is on fire.

During the first six months of 2018, Discraft was our #5 brand in terms of disc sales. The Innova, Discmania, Dynamic Discs, and Latitude 64 brands all accounted for more InfiniteDiscs.com sales than did Discraft — which represented less than 7% of our online sales.

Jan – June 2019 InfiniteDiscs.com Sales By Brand

Through the first half of 2019 Discraft sales have nearly tripled! The introduction of the Paul McBeth Kong/Zeus was our hottest disc release ever. Sales of the Anax and Luna were almost just as hot. While Innova is still #1, Discraft has sold more discs than the #3 and #4 brands combined. The sales difference gap between Innova and Discraft was less than 13% during the first half of 2019 compared with a 31.5% difference during the same time period one year ago.

Not all of the credit can be given to Paul McBeth. Discraft has made some major changes to prepare themselves for a massive production increase that would bring their brand back to the top. Discraft Swirly ESP plastic is arguably the best looking plastic on the market. Discraft has done a brilliant job re-marketing themselves as a leader in disc golf.

With such a rapid increase in Discraft sales, the question arises, is it at the expense of other brands?

Overall, our total disc sales at Infinite Discs are up slightly for the first half of the year, but Discraft is taking market share from others and we have seen a year over year decline in sales for some brands.

Brands That Saw Sales Declines

Among the larger brands we sell, Innova and Discmania (brands Paul McBeth used to promote) have seen a slight decline in sales. During the off season, Discmania made some significant changes by also manufacturing with Latitude 64 and Yikun. With these changes I was very surprised to see that our Discmania sales declined. Had they sufficient stock of DD3’s to meet our buyers demand, I’m pretty sure Discmania would not have appeared on this list.

The biggest “hit” taken on brand preference in 2019 among our customers appears to be decreased demand for Latitude 64 and Westside Discs. Our online sales for Latitude 64 were down 17% while the Westside brand was down almost 25%. One likely reason for a decrease in sales of these brands is the loss of Ricky Wysocki as a Latitude 64 sponsored player.

During the first six months of 2018, the Westside Harp (one of the primary discs used by Ricky Wysocki) was our #11 selling disc. During the same period of 2019, Harp sales dropped to #26. The Explorer dropped from #36 to #62 and the Dagger dropped from #47 to #92.

Meanwhile the Innova Pig went from being our 175th best selling disc in 2018 to our 45th best selling disc during the first half of 2019. Despite the loss of Paul McBeth, the Ricky Wysocki signature Destroyer has helped that disc remain as our top selling disc of 2019. The addition of Ricky Wysocki to Team Innova undoubtedly lightened the blow of losing McBeth.

Other Brands That Increased in Sales Despite Discraft’s Surge

The third member of the Trilogy family, Dynamic Discs, saw a modest 3% sales increase compared with 2018. The new Raider distance driver undoubtedly helped those sales.

MVP and Axiom, with their triple foil artwork and loyal fan-base, saw growth rates of 24% and 27% respectively. Their unrelenting new release schedule and new swirly plastic blends fanned the flames.

With the addition of five new molds, sales of the Infinite Discs brand increased by 66% during the first half of 2019.

Prodigy Disc saw an impressive sales increase 43%. Some of this increase can be attributed to the success of their pros, particularly Kevin Jones, who is having a fantastic year and is becoming one of the most liked players on tour.

Gateway, which has made a big emphasis on improving their premium plastic look and feel, saw a modest increase in 2019 sales of 5%.

Most of the smaller disc brands also saw an increase in our online sales with the exceptions being Legacy, Hyzer Bomb, and Viking Discs. A primary reason for the reduction in Viking sales is our inability to order more of these discs from Finland. We have been in need of a major restock for most of the year, and we can’t sell discs that we do not have. With Hyzer Bomb, the sales figures are most likely an adjustment after an incredible run on Mortar discs.

Growth Among Smaller Disc Brands

The introduction of several new molds, as well as the new “Cosmic Neutron” plastic blend, has helped Streamline to a 91% 2019 sales increase. Through the first six months, Streamline is currently our #11 selling disc brand.

Kastaplast’s popular plastic feel and increased availability lead to an increase of more than double their 2018 sales in 2019.

Yikun saw the largest percentage of sales growth from companies not named Discraft. The increase in Yikun sales may be partially attributed to Discmania’s partnership with the Yikun brand which has some players interested in checking out the additional molds.

DGA saw a 56% increase in sales during the first half of 2019. DGA’s likely benefited from their partnership with Discraft and the fact that Paul McBeth spent some time throwing DGA branded discs.

RPM discs out of New Zealand saw a healthy 84% year over year increase while Finland’s Prodiscus brand saw a modest 27% improvement.

The release of their second disc, the Bobcat, helped Mint Discs increase sales by 65% this year.

The first half of 2019 has been a dramatic ride for the ever changing landscape of disc sales. It will be interesting to see if the Discraft popularity surge has peaked, or if the hype for Paul McBeth products will continue.

Disclaimer: The numbers used for this article are taken solely from InfiniteDiscs.com sales, and do not necessarily reflect the actual sales trends for the different brands among all retail outlets. InfiniteDiscs.com customers are primarily avid disc golfers who regularly follow professional disc golf. Casual disc golfers, that represent the majority of people who play disc golf, are less likely to be influenced by the moves of professional disc golfers.
