The Corvette, Sexton Firebirds, and Lucky Discs

The Luckiest new golf disc - The Innova Corvette

Hot new items have arrived to the Infinite Warehouse this morning.

With spring in the air and more daylight, disc golf is in full bloom and it’s time to stock up on the hottest new releases from Innova Champion Discs.

The Corvette

The Innova Corvette might just be the fastest driver Innova has ever made. If you’re looking for more distance, or are just looking for something new to try, you’re going to want to try the Corvette.

The Corvette is a speed 14 driver with a glide rating of 6, turn of -1, and 2 fade. Innova describes that the Corvette as a faster Shryke and says it is, “long on glide with just enough fade for freakishly-far throws”

We have the stock run and a limited number of “First Release” stamp discs online now.

Sexton Firebird

The Nate Sexton edition color glow Firebird is by far the highest demand, fastest selling disc we have ever stocked. If the batch we added today is anything like the last one we received, there is a good chance they will be gone by the time you read this post. But, if some still are available, you will be able to find them here:

Lucky Discs

Lucky Disc Golf Horsehoe AviarLucky Discs Horseshoe AviarWhat better way to start off than the disc golf season with a little luck? Shake off the rust and get your disc golf game on point with a limited edition Lucky Aviar. The release of these lucky putters is just in time for Saint Patricks Day. This years version has a lucky horse shoe hotstamp on green and white Aviars.

These are limited edition stamps that will likely never be run again.

Mini Stamp Valkyrie

As part of Innova’s mini stamp series, today’s release also includes a batch of Valkyries. Throw your Valkyries with style.

Memorial Championship Team Competition Results

Our second week of the professional disc golf team competition was another exciting one. Eagle McMahon dominated the tournament averaging 1077 rated rounds while making Fountain Hills look like a beginner course. Fellow Discmania teammate Simon Lizotte was not far behind him. The domination by the “crush brothers” earned enough points for Team Discmania to claim the win for the men’s side of the team competition.

On the women’s side, Finnish sensation Evalina Salonen extended her final round lead by shooting an incredible 1015 rated round; securing the win for Team Innova over a surging Paige Pierce and Team Dynamic Discs.

Team Innova won the overall competition when combining both results for both the men and women.

Overall Standings

With another dominating performance by Team Innova, they are clearly #1 in the overall performance after two weeks. Team Discmania may have a chance to secure a few more victories on the men’s side of the competition if the Crush brothers keep finishing in the top positions. Team Prodigy and Discraft have the talent to compete on any given week, we just haven’t seen any top finishes yet.

On the women’s side, it appears that the real competition will be between Team Innova and Team Dynamic Discs. Prodigy, Discraft, and MVP all have talented players, but just don’t have the number of top tier players to earn enough points to compete throughout the overall season.

Which Disc Golf Team Won the Las Vegas Challenge?

If you’ve been following some of our recent blog posts, we’ve evaluated the “Team” aspect of disc golf.

While some of the employees at Infinite Discs were discussing “Disc Golf Teams,” we thought it would be fun to find out who really has the best disc golf team — from an on the course competitive standpoint.

Our intern Ethan has created a website that shows team results for the different disc golf pro tour and national tour events using a point system similar to cross country and swimming.

To put something on the line, and reward the winning “team” we are also giving a 10% off discount code for the winning team’s brand the week following each major tournament.

Results from the Las Vegas Challenge are in. If you want to find out who won, and take advantage of this weeks discount code, check out the new team competition website at DiscGolfTeams.com

Discmania Partners with Latitude 64 and Yikun

It’s Valentine’s Day, not April Fools Day, and according to this latest announcement you’ll now be able to throw a “mixed-bag” all under the same Discmania name.

Discmania CEO Jussi Meresmaa has announced that they will offer “more choices to reinvent your game” by partnering with Latitude 64 in Sweden and Yikun Disc Sports in China to create two new sub-brand discs.

Over the past twelve years, Discmania brand discs were manufactured exclusively by Innova Champion Discs. These discs will continue being sold and produced under the name Discmania Originals.

Discs Manufactured by Latitude 64

The discs Latitude 64 will make will use the sub-brand Discmania Evolution. There are plans for four discs this year with one scheduled for release each month beginning March. The new disc molds include: Evolution Enigma, Evolution Instinct, Evolution Method, and the Evolution Link.

Discs Manufactured by Yikun

The disc line produced by Yikun will be using the sub brand  Discmania Active. It appears that the partnership with Yikun is primarily to get very low-cost plastic, as the Active line discs are only scheduled to be released in a base plastic called, Base Level Plastic. Five discs have been announced for release in the Active Line: Guardian Lion, Spring Ox, Fox Spirit, Sea Serpent, and Sun Crow. All five of these discs are scheduled for release in March. It appears that the Active line is going to keep it really simple with these discs being available in just three colors: pink, white, and blue.

How will this change effect the disc golf industry?

It’s hard to say for sure. What we do know at Infinite Discs is that in terms of sales, the Discmania brand has been our fastest growing brand over the past three years.

The Latitude 64 brand has been struggling in terms of growth/market share, and Yikun sales represent less than 1% of our total sales and are not included on this chart. This partnership will definitely help Yikun discs find a way in more disc golfers hands, and will likely increase the distribution of plastic manufactured by Lat 64.

This partnership also leads to a lot of speculation and questions. How much will this impact Discmania’s already rapidly growing brand? Discmania can now offer versions of the best molds in the best plastics from the two top manufactures in disc golf. They will also be able to offer very inexpensive discs that will likely help them increase their distribution in sporting goods and big box stores that focus primarily on price.

Will the fact that Latitude 64 manufactured discs will no longer be distributed exclusively by Dynamic Discs hurt the Trilogy brands growth? How will this separation impact Innova? We’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions, so please comment below!

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 in 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.

Small_PackageSmall Packages:

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

For small packages (2 or less discs), towels, small accessories, mini’s, physical gift cards, etc. weighing less than 16oz, the USPS guideline is 2-5 days. Assuming the worst and a 5 day delivery time, unless you make a Priority mail upgrade you will want to make sure your order is in by 4:30 on Monday, December 17th.

Note, if you pay extra for the “Priority Upgrade” to ship a small package Priority Mail, your likely safe to receive in time date is Wednesday, December 19th. If your order is made beyond the 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 expedited shipping.

MediamPackage_5890Medium Sized Packages:

Safe Order Deadline: Wednesday, December 19th

For Medium sized packages 3-11 discs and economy bags, we usually ship USPS priority mail within the United States. Priority Mail delivery time is typically 2-3 days. Orders in by 4:30 on Wednesday, December 21st, should arrive by Christmas. However, to be on the safe side, in case of any USPS handling errors or delays, you should plan to have these orders in by Tuesday, 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.

IMG_5887Large Packages

Safe Order Deadline: Friday, December 14th

Large packages including baskets, large backpacks, and 11+ discs are typically shipped 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 for many of these products are delivered directly from the manufacturer, who may not process your order as quickly as we do in house. If you want one of these items to arrive by Christmas, you’ll likely be fine if your order is in by December 17th, but to be safe, you’ll want it in by 2:00 on Friday the 14th.

Unless you want to specifically arrange to pay hundreds extra for priority upgrades for large Packages, we cannot do Priority Upgrades for our fixed $3 shipping fee. For large packages, that only guarantees priority processing.

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 which usually arrives to Canada and Europe within one week, but. So if you order before December 14th 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 do you really need a reason to give somebody a great disc golf gift?

Gift Cards

Deadline to Arrive By Christmas: December 25th

The safest bet (and arguably the best Christmas gift for a 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, and just email the code directly to the recipient.

Overnight Shipping?

Safe Order Deadline: Nonexistent

What if I waited until the week of Christmas to order my discs? 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 and do not arrive by the estimated time frame. We cannot guarantee that any package will actually arrive by Christmas.
