Best Disc Golf Putters

Play Disc Golf

Welcome to December disc golfers! Hopefully these best disc golf discs posts are helping you survive the off-season! And today we have a category that may cause some fights. We all have our favorites, but today we at Infinite Discs are going to try to select one disc golf putter as the best!

Before listing the nominees for The Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Putter, let’s break down what we are looking for when making our selection. The two words I always come back to are popularity and utility. We want to choose a popular putter that is utilized by disc golfers of every skill level. Also, please note that this category is titled “Putter” and not “Putt and Approach.” We will be splitting those categories. For our purposes today, we are naming discs that are most commonly used as the disc inside 50 feet or so when you are trying to hole out. So for example, the Westside Harp which is an overstable Putt and Approach disc that is most commonly known for approaching will not be nominated in this category.

That being said, let’s take a look at the best selling Putt and Approach discs of 2018 so far:

Top sellers of 2018:

  1. Discmania P2
  2. Innova Aviar
  3. Dynamic Discs Judge
  4. Westside Harp
  5. Dynamic Discs Warden
  6. Axiom Envy
  7. Gateway Wizard
  8. Innova Nova
  9. Innova Sonic
  10. Latitude 64 Pure

Some of you might be surprised to see the Innova Sonic make the top 10, but there were some special editions released during this year that helped to boost those sells. Beyond that, these are all very familiar names that those who are close to disc golf shouldn’t be surprised to see make the top 10.

Now, here are our nominees for the best putter!

MVP Atom

The Putt and Approach category is what helped put MVP on the map, but the MVP Atom wasn’t released until a few years later and has become the most popular putter in their lineup. It has a very comfortable rim that seems to be the perfect middle ground between their two original putters, the Anode and Ion. The Atom offers a flight that is straight and reliable, and of course, MVP gives you its signature Gyro technology with the overmold on all of their discs.

Innova Aviar

This disc is a common first putter to own with the DX Aviar available at most sporting goods stores, but it is the McPro Aviar that has kept this mold at the top of the sales chart. It will be interesting to see how Innova brands that plastic blend next year with Paul McBeth leaving. Either way, the Aviar is a beadless putter that offers a straight and reliable flight that is great for disc golfers of all skill levels.

 

Latitude 64 Dagger

The Latitude 64 Dagger is the tallest putter on the market, which allows for a nice glide. The large bead and “deep dish” might make the Dagger a little harder for smaller hands, and it is an adjustment for golfers used to pretty much any other putter, but those who learn to use it can be lethal with long range putts (just ask Raptor Legs Ricky…).

 

 

Axiom Envy

The Axiom Envy is a slightly overstable putter that flirts with the line between approach and putting putters, this putter has a flatter top and of course the gyro technology overmold. The Envy like the Dagger, is not your typical putter, but those who take the time to practice with it enjoy the way it feels in their hand and the way it performs on the course.

 

 

 

Dynamic Discs Judge

The Dynamic Discs Judge has become one of the standards of the Putt and Approach category since its release in 2012. The Judge is a beaded putter that has a comfortable height that is perfect for all hand sizes and ages. The Judge is a straight flying putter that is very predictable and easy to learn to use.

 

 

 

Discmania P2

The Discmania P2 has been on the market for over 10 years, but recently it has become one of the best selling discs in the world regardless of category. The P2 is a popular approach putter as well as putting putter. It is a tall, beadless disc that offers a very comfortable grip and predictable, straight flight. Discmania does a good job as well of differentiating the different plastic blends and the benefits of each blend. But regardless of plastic type, the P2 offers a flight that offers something for disc golfers of all skill levels.

 

Latitude 64 Pure

The Latitude 64 Pure is another unique putter that has a strong following among those who use it. It is a shallow, beadless, and understable putter that feels just a bit different when compared to other putters. The small and short rim might be uncomfortable for players with larger hands, and the understable flight is not ideal for the wind, but in the right conditions this disc flies true to its name–pure. The Pure goes straight for a long time, making it great for longer putts.

Dynamic Discs Warden

The Warden is another standard in the Dynamic Discs family. The Warden‘s mold is basically a beadless Judge that flies just as straight and just as consistently. If you have tried the Judge and decided you like it but the bead isn’t for you, then you shouldn’t skip a beat switching to the Warden. And of course, vice-versa.

 

Gateway Wizard

The Wizard has been doing it for over 15 years, and has become the “old reliable” in the putters category. It has an average to slightly taller height and a beaded rim that fits great for all ages and hand sizes. The Wizard is a straight flying putter that can be lethal from distance as well. Gateway has also done a great job of making the Wizard available in LOTS of plastic blends. So from Firm to Really Freakin’ Flexible or anywhere in between, you should be able to find a Wizard that is right for you.

 

 

 

And that does it for the nominees! Our winner will be announced next Friday.

Your Opinion: Win a disc of your choice!

Which putter do you think is the best? Comment telling us which disc you think is the best putting putter and why. We will be selecting three people who leave comments to receive their favorite putter for free from Infinite Discs!

Best Disc Golf Midrange Disc–Winner

Time for this week’s winner for the Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Midrange Discs. We got a lot of comments and discussion in last week’s post where we announced our nominees, but there can only be one winner! Let’s review the nominees:

Every midrange that we have nominated is a great disc that can add to the arsenal of any disc golfer. But now, it is time for the winner!

THE INFINITE DISCS BEST DISC GOLF DISC: MIDRANGE DISC

DISCRAFT BUZZZ

If you have been following these posts, you should know by know that we aren’t picking upsets. The Buzzz is the old standard for midrange discs. It is a pure, straight flyer that disc golfers of every skill level love to use. The old debate of Roc v. Buzzz will never die, but we had to choose the Buzzz because of its friendlier stability for newer players and the comfortable beadless rim that allows for the occasional forehand throw. The Discraft Buzzz is our choice for the best midrange on the market today.

We will be announcing the nominees for our next category this afternoon, so check back soon!

2018 Christmas Gift Ideas for Disc Golfers

  • Every year at Infinite Discs we try to put together a unique, fun list of gift ideas for disc golfers. Let’s take a look at the 2018 holiday ideas that we feel would please any disc golfer…

Discs!

Of course, no disc golf will turn down more discs for the holidays. But where do you start if you don’t know which specific discs they need in their bag? You might as well get something that is fun to throw and collectible, or that shares a little holiday spirit. That way, whether they throw it, or keep it as a memento, they’ll be happy. Here are a few holiday discs you might consider:

FULL FOIL BUZZZ — The most popular midrange disc is the Discraft Buzzz and this year they’ve unleashed a huge selection of Buzzz discs with beautiful FULL FOIL designs (full color images on foil that covers the entire top of the disc). You can even get Star Wars licensed full foil discs now, along with several bee themed, limited edition discs. What disc golfer wouldn’t want a shiny, colorful disc as a gift?

TAKE A LOOK AT THEM HERE

HOLIDAY EDITION DISCS — Several different brands make holiday edition discs. We have a lot of discs that were released as Halloween discs if your disc golfer prefers more of a spooky edge, no matter what time of year it is. Or, if you want a “Happy Holidays” disc from Legacy, or a “Naughty and Nice” Teebird3 from Innova, we’ve got them.

You can BROWSE THE HOLIDAY SELECTION HERE and filter by brand or disc type to find exactly what you like among the holiday editions.

DISC DEALS BOXES

    • — One of the most popular gift ideas purchased during the holiday season, without fail, is the Infinite Deals Box. These are 7-disc package sets with a variety of different disc models from different brands, including stock stamps, tournament stamps, misprints, and more. It is a great value and an adventurous way to give a pile of discs to a player so that they can try them out and possibly find some new favorites! We have four different Deals Box sizes to choose from:

MYTH 10-DISC PUTTER PACK — We also have a selection available of 10-Disc MYTH Putter packs. The MYTH is a slick, beaded putter by Infinite Discs, and we’ve had so many customers ask for bulk packs of putters that we made these as a way for people to get a lot of practice putters for a very low price. Why do disc golfers need so many putters? Because putting is one of the most important parts of the game, and it is easier to practice when you’ve got a big pile by your side.

GET A 10-PACK of MYTH PUTTERS HERE

LARGE GIFT ITEMS

If you want to impress your disc golfer for the holidays, hit them with a big ticket item that they will love but might not have felt ready to purchase on their own.  These are our favorite ideas…

ROVIC DISC GOLF CART — One of the newest disc golf carts this year is the ROVIC RV1D which was altered by a golf card company to handle the demands and needs of disc golfers. It puts the disc golfer’s bag on wheels and provides extra storage space for additional accessories. It also folds into a more compact size for storage and transport to the disc golf course. It comes in a few color combinations.

CHECK OUT THE ROVIC CART HERE

ZUCA CART — One of the most popular disc golf carts for the frequent disc golfer is the Zuca cart which is built to carry a maximum quantity of discs, provides a place to sit during long rounds, and carries a variety of accessories. There are also many other features which can be added to the Zuca cart, like padded seat cushions, more drink holders, putter pouches, and more. There are color combinations available for any taste.

SEE ALL CART VARIETIES AND ADD-ONS HERE

PORTABLE PRACTICE BASKETS — Any disc golf would be utterly impressed by their own, portable disc golf practiced basket. There are a wide variety of baskets available on the market by a lot of different manufacturers, all with the intent to provide an easy way for players to practice in their yard, set up small courses, or take with them on camping trips, etc. Here are some of the newest and most popular options:

Black Hole Pro with Transit Bag — The Black Hole Pro is a very popular practice basket by MVP and this year they’ve added a Transit Bag as an easy way to carry the broken-down basket from place to place.

Discraft Chainstar Lite — This is one of the newer portable baskets that is high quality with a few different color options to choose from. For your $150 range, this is one of the best options.

Mach Shift 3-in-1 Portable Basket — This new basket offering from DGA is unique because it can be changed from a standard size that has double-layered chains, to a narrow putting practice basket, to a macro-basket for an even smaller target. For those who want to spend a little more for a variety of configurations, it is the perfect choice.

DGA Mach Lite — This is our favorite and by far the best-selling collapsible basket. It is easily folded and transported inside a shoulder carry case, yet is very sturdy and well constructed. This year it was released in orange and green as new color options.

Discatcher Sport — This portable basket by Innova has sold a lot at the end of the year because it has been steeply discounted. Quantities are running low, so it is one of those “get it while it is cheap” deals that may not last through the end of the year.

ADIDAS TERREX SHOES

One of the newest items in our inventory at Infinite Discs this year is a nice selection of sturdy, high-quality disc golf shoes by Adidas Terrex brand. These are light weight, but sturdy outdoor shoes that were designed for handling all kinds of terrain, whether mountainous or groomed parks. They are also able to handle a lot of side-to-side torque that is inflicted upon the shoes of disc golfers when throwing discs at high speeds. The soles are high quality and very long-lasting, plus you can get the most popular models with GTX for extra waterproofing against rain or dew-covered grass so your feet don’t get wet. We’ve selected what we believe are the best shoes for disc golfers from the huge Terrex line.

AX2R — one of the most popular and least expensive options

AX2R GTX — the waterproof version of the popular AX2R

SWIFT R2 — a higher-end shoe that pro disc golfers have loved

SWIFT R2 GTX — the waterproof version of the awesome Swift R2

AGRAVIC GTX — the highest quality shoe we carry, with a long-lasting construction, waterproofing, and “boost” technology for extreme comfort when worn for long periods

AGRAVIC SPEED — the most lightweight option for fast movers and travel light but want comfort

1-YEAR MEMBERSHIP IN THE VIP CLUB

One of the most exciting things you can give to any hard-core disc golfer or disc collector is a one-year membership in the Infinite Discs VIP Club.  That way, the disc golfer you love will receive a unique, collectible disc every month, automatically, as well as discounts on the Infinite Discs website and access to exclusive releases in the VIP Club Store.

SIGN UP FOR THE MEMBERSHIP HERE (select the pre-paid annual option, or pay month-to-month for as long as you want)

MID-RANGE BUDGET ITEMS

Maybe you don’t have a huge budget, but you want to get your favorite disc golfer something nice that is under $100. Here are a few fun ideas that will fit the bill…

Infinite Disc Slinger Bag — The Infinite Disc Slinger is designed for affordability, ease, and comfort for quick disc golf rounds. It provides a quality bag option for beginners as well as experienced players who simply want to grab a dozen discs and hit the course. This is the perfect crossover between traditional shoulder bags and backpacks. You can throw it over your shoulder (the strap can be adjusted for whichever shoulder you prefer), carried in your hand, or slung across your body like popular sling bags.  It is available in black or blue.

Infinite Stealth Bag with Water Bladder — The Infinite Stealth Bag includes both a Stealth Bag and the 2.0 liter water bladder. This is the perfect solution for hot rounds on rugged terrain where you want to carry light but still keep hydrated. Never worry about the extra fluids when you’re in the middle of a long round, and don’t worry about lugging around a lot of weight. This bag is designed to travel light and fast.

Large Selection of Apparel — Whether you’re looking for t-shirts, or sweatshirts, or jackets, or hats, there is a huge selection of apparel options from many brands on the Infinite Discs website. These choices fit any taste of budget. Check out those apparel options HERE.

GRIP6 Belts — One of the hottest new apparel items for disc golfers this year has been the Grip6 line of belts. These are long-lasting, flexible belts that provide comfort as well as dependability. They are designed to last a lifetime. They come in several colors with different style buckles. You can pick a specific waist size, or you can select the “own size” option where an extra long belt can be cut and prepped for your own, specific size.

DiscDiver Retriever — There is one thing certain, when it comes to the game of disc golf….if there is water present on the course, the discs will find their way into that water. The DiscDiver Golden Retriever is designed to help disc golfers drag the bottom of those pesky ponds and lakes to retrieve their lost discs. These are excellent tools that almost every disc golfer wishes they had at one point or another. These is also the slightly altered Disc Claw which accomplishes the mission nicely.

Trooper Backpack — One of the most popular entry-level backpacks comes from Dynamic Discs. The Trooper has been a top seller for any player who wants an inexpensive yet comfortable backpack to carry their discs around the course. Thought it doesn’t come with a lot of extra features, it covers all of the baskets and is perfect for players who have over a dozen discs and want a way to carry them inexpensively.

Disc Golf Books — While there haven’t traditionally been a lot of books available for disc golfers, we’ve been hunting some down. They always make an interesting, less expected gift. The newest addition to our small book selection is the new DISC GOLF REVOLUTION by Jack Tupp.

This is a book that presents disc golf’s irrefutable case as the ideal sport for the 21st century. If you see yourself as part of the ‘Grow the Sport’ movement, The Disc Golf Revolution is for you. Keep it on hand and give copies as a gifts to those who needs to know the full story.

STOCKING STUFFERS

These small items would be fun for little gifts to any disc golfer. They don’t take a lot of space, they aren’t expensive, and they can add a little fun to your Christmas morning…

Pro Tour Trading Cards — These fun cards are a great surprise for any fan of professional disc golf. There are 9-card booster packs as well as 65-card decks and they carry a mixed variety of cards featuring the top professional players, top courses, and top disc golf awards. Plus they can be traded with other pro disc golf fans to build a complete collection. You can buy several boosters to pass around to all of the disc golfers in your life.

Disc Golf Towels — Towels are frequently needed by disc golfers to keep their discs dry, and we’ve got a variety of different towels, from lightweight to thick and absorbent. They can easily be stuffed into any stocking.

Pyrohyzer Glass Mini Discs — Another fun product that Infinite Discs started carrying this year is the unique glass mini discs by Pyrohyzer. Each mini is handmade and entirely unique. The prices vary depending on the amount of extra features, like “shatter” patterns, swirls, glow-in-the-dark, and etching. Though these glass minis are nice enough to display, they can be used as mini markers during disc golf rounds. They’re definitely a top-notch gift idea that fits into the stocking.  Also available in MICRO MINI sizes.

Stress Mini / Knee Pad Mini — These unique mini markers were designed to take away your stress before or after putting by squeezing them to your heart’s content. They squash into your hand but are sized just right for marking your disc’s lie. But they’ve also become quite popular as knee pads during rounds when players need to kneel on the hard ground to put from under a tree or out of shrubs, etc. Thus they have become a multi-purpose mini disc. Plus, they fly nicely too if you want to play a fun indoor or outdoor came of catch.

Whale Sac — These little, hand-sized bags are filled with clay to help players dry their hands during disc golf rounds, particularly when it is hot and fingers can lose a grip on the disc. While there are many similar grip-enhancing bags like this on the market, the Whale Sac has been one of the most popular because they are produced by professional disc golfers, and they feature a cool “tail” to use for tying them onto a bag, backpack, or cart.

Pocket Discs — Every year we see an increase in sales for Pocket Discs because they are such a fun little idea for disc enthusiasts to throw around the house. They fit in the stocking, or in a pocket, and are hand-woven as a floppy, soft, catch-and-throw disc. There is a regular sized indoor pocket disc for $9.99, or a larger, heavier “El Grande” pocket disc for $19.99 if you want more distance and higher performance.

Friction Gloves — While these might appear to be somewhat expensive gloves at first glance, they are actually worth every dollar for disc golfers who want to play when it is cold outside. They take the bite out of the cold air, but more importantly, they provide extra grip on the disc, even when the plastic is wet. That way, disc golfers can play in the gold without taking gloves off to throw and putting them back on again to warm up. If you don’t want to buy a pair of the Friction Gloves, they are also sold separately for single hands, so that the throwing hand can have the enhanced grip.

GIFT CARDS

Of course, if you’re out of ideas, or you simply prefer to let your disc golfer pick their own discs or accessories, you can count on gift cards. Infinite Discs has two options for gift cards:

E-GIFT CARD — Delivers a code to the specified email address which can be used to purchase product on the website.

PHYSICAL GIFT CARD — We ship a plastic gift card to you so that you can wrap it, put it in a stocking, or hand it to the recipient.

WE WANT YOUR INPUT

Please post in the comments below about your ideas as ideal gifts for disc golfers. We’d love to know, and there are other shoppers out there who are looking for great ideas. 

We randomly selected a winner for a PyroHyzer trophy disc from the comments. Congratulations, Blain, for the win!

Thanks!

Four New Discs Approved for Latitude 64 and Dynamic Discs

As we look forward to 2019, we are excited to see what new molds are released! Lucky for us, we can take a sneak peak at four new molds from Latitude 64 and Dynamic Discs. These molds were all PDGA approved in November 2018 and are set to release in 2019. Let’s take a look!

Latitude 64 Recoil

PDGA Approved: Nov. 23, 2018

Latitude 64 Recoil Distance Driver

The Recoil has also been announced on Latitude 64’s website, giving us a little more information on the disc. The Recoil has flight ratings of 12, 4, 0, 3. Latitude 64’s description says that it will be a comfortable disc to throw with reliable fade at the end of the flight.

 

Latitude 64 Pioneer

PDGA Approved: Nov. 23, 2018

Latitude 64 Pioneer Fairway Driver

The Pioneer is a new fairway/control driver announced by Latitude 64. They give it flight ratings of 9, 3, 0, 4. These are the same flight ratings as the Firebird, one of Innova’s most popular overstable fairway drivers. Latitude says this disc will have a very flat top, making it a perfect choice for sidearm throws. This disc also compares closely to the Felon – Dynamic Disc’s overstable and flat fairway driver. We’re excited to see how it flies!

 

Dynamic Discs Guard

PDGA Approved on Nov. 4, 2018

The Guard was PDGA approved recently, but not a lot of other information has been announced about it yet. The dimensions of the Guard can help tell a story, though. It has very similar dimensions to the popular Judge. The Guard is just a touch smaller in diameter, a tiny bit taller, and has a slightly skinnier rim. This leads us to believe this will be a new putter, but that is all we know at this time!

 

Dynamic Discs Vandal

PDGA Approved on Nov. 4, 2018

The Vandal is another disc that has been approved by the PDGA, but not announced by Dynamic Discs. A look at the dimensions tells us at it is likely a new fairway driver around speed 8. This is due to the rim thickness being the same as the Witness and Thief. Again, not much is known at this time, but we’re excited to get this in our hands!

On a more controversial side note: The Vandal is the name of a prototype Legacy Discs mid-range mold. In 2018 some samples of the Legacy Discs Vandal had been floating around, but the disc was never PDGA approved. Unfortunately, to be PDGA approved, two discs can not have the same name, so Dynamic Discs might have beat Legacy to the punch.

 

 

Best Disc Golf Midrange Discs

It’s time to keep naming the absolute best disc golf discs in the world! At least, the best in our opinion! Today we will be naming our nominees for the best disc golf midrange discs on the market today.

Before I list the nominees for The Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Midrange Disc, lets break down what we are looking for when selecting these discs. Like with all of the discs in these posts, we are using two keywords for choosing our nominees: popularity and utility. We will choose popular midrange discs that can be utilized by disc golfers of all skill levels.

First, lets take a look at which midrange discs have been the best sellers so far in 2018.

Top sellers of 2018:

  1. Discraft Buzzz
  2. Innova Roc3
  3. Innova Mako3
  4. Innova Roc
  5. Dynamic Discs Emac Truth
  6. Discmania MD3
  7. Hyzerbomb Mortar
  8. Innova Gator
  9. Discraft Comet
  10. Innova Rat

It doesn’t look like there are too many surprises in the sales chart. The Innova Rat was released at the start of 2018, and it looks like it has been able to maintain positive sales numbers throughout the year. It will be interesting to see how this disc performs over the next few years as well.

Now, here are our nominees!

Discraft Buzzz

Far and away the most popular disc in the Discraft lineup, the Buzzz is a staple of the disc golf world. It has been part of the game since 2003. For many years disc golfers had two main choices for midranges, either the Buzzz or the Innova Roc. As the sales numbers show, both of these discs have proven to stand the test of time. The Buzzz offers a smooth, beadless profile that fits comfortably in the hand for all sizes and grips. It offers a very stable flight that can be used by disc golfers at all skill levels.

Discraft Comet

Another disc to show that age doesn’t matter, the Discraft Comet has been a part of the game for over 20 years. The Comet‘s mold is unique with a significant bead and more significant dome that offers a very understable flight with lots of glide. The Comet is great for beginners looking to get some distance out of their midrange, and perfect for more experienced throwers trying to navigate tight fairways.

Dynamic Discs Emac Truth

The Emac Truth is DD’s third effort at crafting a midrange with a “true” straight flight pattern after the disc now named the Verdict was too overstable and the original Truth was just a bit too understable. But the Emac Truth was worth the wait, as it is an excellent midrange disc for all skill levels. It offers a flight that is right in between a Buzzz and a Roc in stability. Faster armspeeds shouldn’t have to worry about turning it over, and newer players who find the Roc fades out more than they’d like, the Emac Truth should be just the right fix.

Innova Gator

The Innova Gator is one of the original “utility” midrange discs. The Gator is designed to fight stiff winds and dive around tight corners on the course. It is a great approach disc for more experienced throwers who can master its very overstable flight. The Gator is not a beginners disc by any means, but it has its purpose on the course.

Dynamic Discs Justice

The Dynamic Discs Justice brought an entirely new meaning to the term, “overstable” when it was released in 2015. Take everything I just said about the Gator and multiply it 2 or 3 times. The Justice is a true “Meathook” designed to hold up to any kind of wind out on the course. Try to turn it over, I dare you. Again, not for beginners, but still a great disc that fulfills a great purpose for those who have learned how to throw it.

Prodigy M4

The Prodigy M4 is a midrange that hasn’t gotten a lot of hype recently in the disc golf world, but that doesn’t mean it should be forgotten. The M4 is a straight flyer that is just a bit more understable than the Buzzz. Of all our nominees, it is one of the most beginner friendly midrange discs. It has a beadless rim design and is offered in a variety of Prodigy’s premium plastic blends.

Innova Mako3

The Innova Mako3 is another very beginner friendly midrange disc. More experienced throwers like to use the Mako3 for longer hyzer-flip shots and is great when you need a midrange to hold straight throughout the flight with very minimal fade.

Discmania MD3

The Discmania MD3 has grown in popularity as Discmania team members like Eagle McMahon have been throwing it all over the course. Probably the most comparable disc to the MD3 from this nominee list would be the Emac Truth. they both hit that sweet spot in stability that is right in between a Buzzz and a Roc.

Hyzerbomb Mortar

The Hyzerbomb Mortar is another utility midrange. It is very overstable, but not quite as much as the Gator. This is because of the only real difference between the two molds, which is that the Mortar is beadless. This makes the Mortar very popular for disc golfers who prefer to forehand their approach shots in the wind, as the beadless design allows for an easier and more consistent forehand grip and release.

Innova Roc

One of the original midranges in the game, the Roc has been flying around disc golf courses for now over 30 years. The Roc is a domey disc that has a comfortable beaded rim. This beaded rim makes the disc a bit more overstable than several of the other midranges on this list, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t beginner friendly. This disc flies straight for a long time and then has a reliable strong fade at the end.

Innova Roc3

Normally we wouldn’t give discs like the Roc and Roc3 their own individual nominations, but the Roc3 has shown that it has its own following that is seperate from its predecessor. They Both have very similar beaded rims, but the Roc3 is a bit flatter, and it is rated to be just a bit faster than the Roc, which allows for a little more distance in the air. Both discs have proven to be staples of the midrange category.

And the 2018 choice for best Midrange Disc Golf Disc is…..

Best Midrange of 2018: Discraft Buzzz

If you have been following these posts, you should know by know that we aren’t picking upsets. The Buzzz is the old standard for midrange discs. It is a pure, straight flyer that disc golfers of every skill level love to use. The old debate of Roc v. Buzzz will never die, but we had to choose the Buzzz because of its friendlier stability for newer players and the comfortable beadless rim that allows for the occasional forehand throw. The Discraft Buzzz is our choice for the best midrange on the market today.

Best Disc Golf Fairway Drivers–Winner

This post comes a week late due to the holiday and all the sales we had going on last week. But we hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your families and that you took advantage of all the deals at Infinite Discs over the weekend! Two weeks ago we announced our nominees for the Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Fairway Drivers. Now it’s the time to announce our winner! But first, let’s review the nominees:

All of these fairway drivers are very popular and can enhance the game of disc golfers of all skill levels. But today we have made our decision for the BEST fairway driver on the market. And the winner is…

THE INFINITE DISCS BEST DISC GOLF DISC: FAIRWAY DRIVER

INNOVA TEEBIRD

It is hard to make a case against the Innova TeeBird. The TeeBird has been the standard of the fairway driver category for years, and it offers a flight that can compliment the game of all skill levels of disc golfers. The TeeBird is available in a large variety of plastic blends and weights, so if you haven’t, check out the TeeBird today.

We will be announcing the nominees for our next category this afternoon, so check back later today!

Infinite Discs Day – November 21st

Our week-long string of sales begins with INFINITE DISCS DAY where all of the Infinite Discs brand discs are discounted. Our own line of quality discs are manufactured by Innova and we’ve been very happy with the discs for this inaugural year.

BROWSE OUR DISCS HERE

Plus we’ve got a couple of limited edition new releases that come out today!

Metal Flake Glow C-Blend PHARAOH – Click Here to See Them

As far as we know, there has never been a disc release made in colored glow (Innova Champion) which also has metal flake in them. But we had to give it a try, and the results are great. These Pharaoh’s have a prominent dome and have an exceptionally long glide. They are probably the best run for pure distance! They come with either the XXL stamp or the bottom stamp if you want to keep the top clean for optimum glowing.

C-Blend RA – Click Here to See Them

The last Infinite Discs release of our 2018 season is the moderately overstable, flat-topped RA mid-range disc. This early edition has a wonderful XXL stamp and both feels and flies great. Give it a try with this limited edition release!

Vision C-Blend SLAB – Click Here to See Them

The Slab is our very over-stable utility distance driver, and if the earlier Metal Flake edition wasn’t beefy enough for you, this Vision C-Blend run with full-color artwork is even more overstable. It will look great as it fades hard or fights the wind for your power throws.

Best Disc Golf Fairway Drivers

Disc Golf Tunnel Shot

Last week we kicked off our new series of posts naming the best disc golf discs on the market. We chose our pick for the best distance driver, and today we will take a look at the fairway drivers. Like the distance drivers, there are lots of new fairway drivers for players to choose from. Do you just want someone to tell you which one is the best? Well, let’s try to answer that question today.

Before I list our nominees for The Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Fairway Driver, let me break down what we are looking for in a fairway driver today. Like the distance drivers, our keywords for choosing nominees will be popularity and utility. We will select popular fairway drivers that can be utilized by disc golfers of all skill levels. This especially gets interesting for control/fairway drivers, because we see a larger spectrum of stability and uses for different types of control drivers. Just a reminder from our last post as well, we will avoid nominating similar discs from the same brand (think TeeBird and TeeBird3).

So first, lets look at which fairway drivers have been the best sellers in 2018 so far.

Top sellers of 2018:

  1. Innova Firebird
  2. Innova Teebird
  3. Innova Thunderbird
  4. Discmania FD
  5. Innova Valkyrie
  6. Innova Leopard3
  7. Innova Leopard
  8. Infinite Discs Exodus
  9. Innova Teebird3
  10. Innova Roadrunner

Innova has traditionally dominated the best sellers in the distance driver category, but in 2018 they have really made gains in the fairway drivers as well. But what is interesting to know is of the next 10 best sellers, only 2 of them are Innova discs. Nearly all brands have released a competitive selling fairway driver.

But like I said, it takes more than popularity to receive a nomination and be named the best! So here are the nominees:

Latitude 64 Diamond

The Latitude 64 Diamond is considered by many to be the beginner driver.

This fairway driver is very understable and only comes in lighter weights. That combination makes it perfect for younger players or newer players who are still working on their form. Even more experienced players who like to throw at slower speeds have been able to put the Diamond to work for their game.

 

Dynamic Discs Escape

The Escape was the first Fairway Driver made by Dynamic Discs, and it has been a staple of the lineup ever since.

The Escape offers a pretty straight and neutral flight that can be used at all skill levels. The Escape gets a little more distance than some of the other fairway drivers nominated, and it is offered in a variety of DD’s plastic blends.

 

Discmania FD

The Discmania FD has been around for seven years now, but it has really just grown in popularity over the last 2 or 3 years.

Many players consider this the slightly understable cousin of the Innova TeeBird. The FD is straight to understable with a glide rating of 6 that is no joke. The FD is a sneaky far disc with a flight pattern that can accommodate all skill levels.

 

Dynamic Discs Felon

The Dynamic Discs Felon falls in the more overstable side of the fairway driver category.

With a flatter profile and overstable flight, many would consider this disc a primarily forehand or flick disc, but more seasoned players can manage this disc throwing backhand as well. What sets the Felon apart is it isn’t a true “meathook.” This disc, when given the right power, will hold straight before delivering a reliable overstable fade at the end of the flight.

 

Innova Firebird

The Innova Firebird‘s popularity has skyrocketed in recent years due to the Nate Sexton Glow Firebirds.

But even before then, the Firebird was known as a reliable overstable fairway driver perfect for getting around a corner or when you needed a disc to hold up in the wind without turning over. The Firebird along with the Felon are probably the least beginner friendly of our nominees.

 

Innova Leopard/Leopard3

We decided to list the Innova Leopard and Leopard3 together. If we were putting this list together last year, we probably would have just nominated the Leopard. But over the last year the Leopard3 has jumped way up on the sales charts and is becoming more and more mainstream. They are similar discs, with the Leopard3 offering a little more speed and stability. The Leopard is a very popular beginner’s disc, especially in DX plastic where it is inexpensive and offered in lighter weights. But both the Leopard and the Leopard3 have a flight that all throwers can find a use for.

 

Latitude 64 River

The Latitude 64 River has moved down the sales charts a bit over the last year, but it still is a very popular disc that has a unique mold and flight.

The River is slightly bigger than most drivers, but it has a smaller rim and a slight dome. I personally don’t know the science of it, but the River has great glide that allows the disc to stay in the air for what seems like forever. This disc is a long, straight flyer that can accommodate all arm speeds.

 

Innova Roadrunner

The Innova Roadrunner has been around for over 13 years, but it is experiencing a bit of a resurgence.

It has always been a very popular understable disc that is great for beginners. But recently the Roadrunner is growing in popularity as a distance roller disc for more experienced players. That being said, bigger arms will still enjoy this disc for long understable air shots.

 

Innova TeeBird

The Innova TeeBird will turn 20 years old in 2019, and throughout that time it has been an extremely popular disc for players of all skill levels.

It is in that sweet spot in stability where it isn’t too overstable for newer players, but it is overstable enough to handle big power from the pros. The TeeBird has a reliable flight and is available in a large variety of plastic blends and weights.

 

Innova Thunderbird

The Innova Thunderbird is often described as being a faster TeeBird, offering a little more distance. And if you just go by the manufacturers flight ratings, that is exactly right.

The higher speed makes this disc a little less beginner friendly, but is still very popular among all disc golfers. If you have found a shot that the TeeBird just comes up a bit short on, try a Thunderbird and you should be pretty close!

 

MVP Volt

MVP and their Gyro technology disrupted the disc golf world when they first hit the scene.

At first they just offered putters and midranges, but at the end of 2012 they brought the overmold to the drivers with their release of the Volt. The Volt has continued to be one of MVP‘s best selling discs ever since. It is a straight to slightly overstable fairway driver that delivers a consistent flight pattern.

 

We have quite a few more nominees for our fairway drivers than we had distance drivers, but like I mentioned, the fairway driver category covers more types of flights, so we felt that there were more discs that deserved nominations in this category.

Best Fairway Driver of 2018

All of these fairway drivers are very popular and can enhance the game of disc golfers of all skill levels. But today we have made our decision for the BEST fairway driver on the market. And the winner is…

THE INFINITE DISCS BEST DISC GOLF DISC: FAIRWAY DRIVER

INNOVA TEEBIRD

It is hard to make a case against the Innova TeeBird. The TeeBird has been the standard of the fairway driver category for years, and it offers a flight that can compliment the game of all skill levels of disc golfers. The TeeBird is available in a large variety of plastic blends and weights, so if you haven’t, check out the TeeBird today.
