This last week had some new releases that made a splash, most noticeably the new AVATAR by Innova which grabbed the #1 spot before selling out. We also got a supply of the Halo Shryke discs which took the #2 spot on the chart. Mint Discs also released the MUSTANG mid-range and the BULLET putter. The MUSTANG took the #4 and #5 spot in two plastics with a strong debut, while the BULLET didn’t quite so much love.

WINNER – The #8 spot last week was taken by the ESP ZONE, which tends to rise and fall with disc availability. It looks like the ESP Zone was the very first guess and was placed by Jacob who is our winner this week.

Top Twenty Tuesday for September 1st, 2020

#1 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#2 – Signature ESP ANAX
#3 – Z Line ZONE
#4 – Swirly S-Blend MAYA
#5 – Star DESTROYER
#6 – ESP ZONE
#7 – Star WRAITH
#8 – Jawbreaker ZONE

#14 – Jawbreaker ROACH
#15 – D-Blend SCARAB
#16 – Signature Swirly S-Blend SPHINX
#17 – Prime Burst JUDGE
#18 – Splatter S-Blend PHARAOH
#19 – Star SHRYKE
20 – Metal Flake C-Line FD

The Discraft LUNA took the top spot once again. That putter never seems to run out of steam…it only runs out of stock. Another Paul McBeth disc, the ANAX, took the number 2 spot with a restock, and several other Discraft restocked models spiked as expected. Whenever a disc is unavailable for a while and then finally comes back in stock, it gets some sales action.

Five different Infinite Discs entries hit the chart this week as well since we got our first meaningful brand restock shipment in months. The Swirly S-Blend and Splatter S-Blend PHARAOH both hit the chart, as well as the new MAYA driver, the Zoe Andyke SPHINX, and the D-Blend SCARAB.

WINNER – The #7 spot last week was taken by the Star WRAITH, a very popular driver the last few months. Congratulations to NATHAN who guessed Star Wraith for the #7 spot this week.

Top Twenty Tuesday for August 25th, 2020

#1 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#2 – Star WRAITH
#3 – Signature Swirly S-Line DD3
#4 – Z Line BUZZZ
#5 – Jawbreaker ZONE
#6 – Signature ESP MALTA
#7 – R-Pro PIG
#8 – Fission WAVE
#9 – Champion MAKO3
#10 – Star ROADRUNNER
#11 – ESP UNDERTAKER
#12 – DX AVIAR
#13 – ESP ZONE
#14 – Star DESTROYER
#15 – Champion TEEBIRD
#16 – Star MAMBA
#17 – DX LEOPARD
#18 – Z Line HEAT
#19 – BaseGrip P MODEL US
20 – Star MAKO3

The #1 spot this week was taken, once again, by the LUNA. Our supply has been sufficient to keep that putter at the top, while other popular releases sell out before they can gain too much momentum. The #2 Star Wraith was given a huge boost by the Solar Wraith stamped release, which might have sold more if we’d had them. The #3 spot with the DD3 was the “Cloud Breaker 2” release, which definitely would have charted at the top if there had been enough discs to meet demand. That release wreaked havoc on our website as hundreds of people tried ordering them all within a few minutes, when there were only a few to be had.

Other popular sellers are once again driven by supply– once they get in stock, they pop up on the chart, then they vanish once they are sold out until the next supply arrives.

Here is a look at how often different brands appeared on the chart this week, with Innova taking the largest number of spots:

WINNER – The #6 spot last week was taken by the Signature ESP MALTA which was a restock for the week, boosting it up on the chart. There were a couple Signature ESP guesses, but not for the Malta, so there wasn’t a winner this week. But give it a try for next time!

#15 – ESP BUZZZ
#16 – Metal Flake C-Line FD
#17 – DX ROC
#18 – Z Line HEAT
#19 – S-Line P2
20 – Star ROADRUNNER

It looks like the Discraft LUNA held onto a strong lead for the #1 spot, followed by the new Fission WAVE release by MVP which took the #2 position. The new Cosmic Neutron PHOTON also made the chart, along with the Axiom Prism Proton INSANITY.  Most of the chart continues to represent a shuffle between popular disc models as they come back in stock, then dropping off the chart as they sell out. It’s still a struggle to stay fully stocked on the most popular models.

Tracking Putter Sales for the Luna, Aviar, and P2

A lot of people in the disc golf market have called 2020 “The Year of the Putter.” The Covid-19 outbreak gave an unexpected boost to putter sales because of the surge in backyard putting. Plus there was additional interest in disc golf as an ideal sport for outdoor, socially distant play.

With that in mind, we thought it would be interesting to track three of the top-selling putters from April 2019 (typically when the spring season lures players back onto the courses) through August 12th, 2020.  We don’t only want to see how the sales compare putter against putter, but also how the supply-and-demand issues in the market have caused sales to fluctuate.

Here is a chart showing those sales as tallied by Infinite Discs.

The LUNA by Discraft (blue line) has seen the biggest swings and spikes. As the signature putter by professional player, Paul McBeth, it gets plenty of time in the spotlight. Availability is always an issue– the putter sells well when it is in stock, but then drops sharply whenever the supply diminishes.

The AVIAR by Innova (red line) has the most steady trend as the supply has typically followed the demand without too many dips. It also followed the sharp spike that coincides with the pandemic outbreak.

The P2 by Discmania (yellow line) also saw growth during the pandemic but saw a sharp decline in the summer months as the supply of the putters completely dried up.

We’ll continue to watch the sales on these popular putters and other discs and will continue to report on this blog from time to time. We hope that you find this data interesting. There’s no doubt that the pandemic has made an impact on the sport and on disc sales, possibly more on putters than other discs.

Top Twenty Tuesday for August 11th, 2020

#18 – C-Blend Glow Hye8Dye PHARAOH
#19 – Star VALKYRIE
#20 – Z Line ZONE

The top 3 spots on this week’s chart went to Discraft, and with authority. The LUNA was restocked as well as the Fierce, giving those two putters a strong showing. The Zone and Zeus by Discraft also made the chart. Though Discraft took those top spots, Innova had a larger number of disc models on the chart this week. Here is a look at how many times the different brands appeared on the chart:

WINNER – The #13 spot last week was taken by the Champion MAKO3 mid-range. It doesn’t look like that disc was picked by any of the guesses this week, so we unfortunately go without a winner this week.

#20 – KC Pro ROC

The inventory levels at Infinite Discs reached the lowest levels this week since early 2017 as the supply chain continues to be challenged by the increased demand for discs. Three Discraft models took the top three spots on the chart this week, and plenty of Innova molds were in the mix as well. But there were several smaller brands that jumped into the Top 20 as players begin looking at alternatives to some of the mainstay discs that are out of stock.

Here at Infinite Discs, we were excited to see three of our own signature discs do well, with the Kona Panis Emperor taking the #4 spot, the Drew Gibson Inca taking the #11 spot, and the David Feldberg Pharaoh coming in at #19.
