Disc Golf Pros Who Throw Infinite Discs

We’d like to welcome two new Pro players to Team Infinite! Plus we’re happy to announce two additional pros from Innova’s team who will have signature editions of Infinite Discs. First, let’s meet the two new team members:

GARRETT GURTHIE

Garrett Gurthie is making his big comeback to the professional disc golf touring season in 2018 and has already made a strong showing in several tournaments. You can follow his tournament results HERE.
https://www.pdga.com/player/13864

Garrett has already had a signature edition of the Infinite Discs PHAROAH on 100 of the first run discs. As soon as the second run is available, we’ll have a lot more with a cool signature stamp for Garrett!

Plus, we’re working with Garrett and Innova to bring back a signature edition of the max weight SONIC which is a classic putt and approach disc that uses minimal effort to glide through tight fairways right into the chains. Check out an example by clicking HERE.

NICOLE “PICKLE” DIONISIO

Pickle has been rocking the Women’s Open pro scene for a couple of years now and we’re glad to add her to Team Infinite. You can follow her tournament results HERE.
https://www.pdga.com/player/71562

Infinite Discs will be working with Pickle to bring future signature discs to the market that are as fun as she is. Watch for signature discs down the road!

*********************

We’re also happy to announce that two members of INNOVA’s team are including Infinite Disc models in their bags and will soon have signature discs available!

JESSICA WEESE

Jessica Weese has kicked off a strong 2018 tournament showing. You can follow her tournament results and history HERE.
https://www.pdga.com/player/50656

You can already get your hands on Innova’s player support Swirly Star Shryke from Innova to help support her efforts on tour. She is a member of Innova’s Star team. Plus, the Infinite Discs store will soon stock four other popular Innova models which Jessica loves to throw, all with her own signature stamp design, so you can help her out while buying some great discs for your own bag. Watch for Star Destroyers, Star Wraiths, Champion Thunderbirds, and KC Pro Avairs coming soon!

Jessica will also have a signature edition of the Infinite Discs CHARIOT once we get to the second run!

ALEX GEISINGER

Alex Geisinger has a great touring history as a professional disc golfer. You can follow his history and tournament results HERE.
https://www.pdga.com/player/52063

Alex is now putting with the Infinite Discs MYTH and will have his own signature edition as part of the first run in P-Blend plastic! Watch for that to show up this summer and pick it up to support his future touring plans. He is a member of Innova’s Champion team.

*******************

And we’d like to give a big hand to our Team Infinite CAPTAIN who has done some great work to build this year’s team and to pull together a great bunch of players from all over, and at all skill levels. Special thanks goes out to…

KESLER MARTIN

Kesler Martin works full-time at Infinite Discs but likes to get away from the desk job to play tournaments as much as possible. You can follow his tournament results HERE.
https://www.pdga.com/player/88497

Kesler continues to run and coordinate Team Infinite and we hope that he continues to rise in the rankings and make great showings in tournaments. As an artist, we know that he already has a bunch of signature disc designs that he’s ready to unleash on the world, once he unleashes his disc golf fame. But he’s already a champion at work. He is also a member of Innova’s Ambassador team.

For more information on what’s up with Team Infinite, follow our team blog here.

March New Releases and New Look from Discraft

DISCRAFT has just released a couple of new discs and has also unleashed a whole new look with their disc catalog. Most notably, the newer runs of their most popular discs now come with the 4-digit flight rating system that has been adopted by most disc golf brands, large and small. Discraft had kept a single digit stability rating for years, but has finally opted to give not only their rating, but the 4-digit variety for those players who believe that it better represents the complete flight characteristics of the disc. We applaud this move!

First you’ll see the four digits which equate to speed / glide / turn / fade, followed by a fifth number which is the old-school Discraft flight number. So now players who like one system or the other can have both for easy reference.

They’ve also given their Titanium plastic a new look with a large, attractive two-color stamp as their regular stock stamp.

While they’ve always had quality discs and great plastic blends, this new look and the effort to conform to the expectations of the growing disc golf market really raises the appeal for the Discraft brand.

According to Discraft, the new Titanium plastic is also an improved blend with greater durability, improved strength, and better grip. So, not only should you see the difference, you should feel it in the plastic as well.

Here is a list of discs that are already released with the new Titanium, plus a few that are coming soon:

Archer (coming this spring)
Buzzz
BuzzzSS (coming this spring)
BuzzzOS
Challenger (coming this spring)
Comet (coming this spring)
Crank
CrankSS
Heat
Machete
Mantis
Nuke
NukeOS
NukeSS
Punisher
Thrasher
Undertaker
Zombee
Zone

On top of the new Titanium, Discraft is also unleashing the new, more attractive ESP Plastic blend with more swirls and decorative effect. They also say that the plastic is now more durable and grippy, but most consumers will instantly notice the added beauty and the unique look to each disc.

Here is another list of the discs that are already released in the new ESP plus some that are coming later this spring:

Archer (coming this spring)
Avenger SS (coming this spring)
Buzzz
Buzzz SS (coming this spring)
Buzzz OS (coming this spring)

BIG Z VULTURE – Now Available!

The Vulture is now released on Big Z plastic with a very cool, large stamp. The Vulture is an overstable fairway driver that has a bit less fade than the Predator, with excellent control and the ability to fight moderate headwinds. Pros and less experienced players will appreciate the shot-shaping and consistency of the Vulture.

These are the flight numbers for the Vulture:

  • Speed: 9.0
  • Glide: 4.0
  • Turn: 0.0
  • Fade: 2.0

The traditional Discraft flight number is 1.7

BIG Z STING – Now Available!

The Sting was released as the 2017 Ace Race disc. This understable driver provides long glide and more distance for newer disc golfers. The Sting is easy to control for short to medium range drives.

These are the flight numbers for the Sting:

  • Speed: 6.0
  • Glide: 5.0
  • Turn: -2.0
  • Fade: 1.0

The traditional Discraft flight number is 0.0

 

Discraft also released the 10th Anniversary Zone in both Elite Z with a traditional hot stamp, plus a Z Supercolor. There were just over 2000 of the hot stamp made, and just over 1000 of the colored version. They’ve been hot sellers.

Watch for more from Discraft!

 

New Golf Discs for 2018

Daylight savings marks the beginning of disc golf season for many disc golfers. If you haven’t followed disc golf during the winter, this post will help keep you up to date with all the latest discs that have been, or will soon be introduced in 2018.

Axiom

Axiom is releasing their first ultra wide rimmed drivers the Excite and Tantrum. The disc Tantrum was made  available on March 23rd while the Excite will be released on April 20th.

  • Tantrum – The Axiom Tantrum is a straight stable with a sharp end of flight fade and a 24.5cm rim. This new distance driver goes very far.
  • Excite – The Axiom Excite is very similar to the Tantrum with a thick 24.5cm rim. The Excite is said to be slightly more understable than the Tantrum.

Discmania

Discmania hasn’t yet released any new discs in 2018, but there are a few known discs we are expecting. The PDGA has approved a retool of the FD2 and the MD5 was PDGA approved at the end of march.:

  • PDX – The Discmania PDX is a power driver that was released as a fundraising disc for the Disc Golf World Tour. It was finally released in a stock stamp at the beginning of 2018. 11/4/0/3
  • MD5 – The Discmania MD5 is a new midrange disc coming soon!

Discraft

Discraft released the Vulture as part of player packs for the 2018 Memorial Challenge. The 2017 Ace Race disc has also been given a name as the Sting. These will be released to retailers sometime in the near future.

  • Vulture – The Vulture is described as less overstable Predator with more glide. This new disc should be available soon.
  • Sting – Discraft gives the Sting a Stability rating of 0. At our Ace Race, most players found it to be quite understable with a significant high speed turn.

DGA

DGA recently had an overstable fairway driver, the Banzai PDGA approved.

  • Banzai – The DGA Banzai is a very overstable control driver. It’s described as a more OS Pipeline. 8/4/0/3

Dynamic Discs

Dynamic Discs has at least four discs in the works. The Maverick, Getaway, and Captain will all be available in early Spring. The Patrol will initially be released as part of the Trilogy Challenge. The Dynamic Discs Maverik and Captain have a scheduled release date of March 30th.

To be released:

  • Patrol – The Patrol is a beginner friendly ultra understable midrange. 5/5/-3/1
  • Maverick – The DD Maverick is a controllable speed fairway driver designed for woods and low ceiling shots. 7/4/-1.5-2
  • Getaway – The Getaway is another fairway driver that is said to be the big brother of the popular Escape. 9/5/-0.5/3
  • Captain – The Captain is an all purpose Distance Driver that can provide massive distance for experienced players, but isn’t so overstable as to be unusable by the average Joe. 13/5/-2/2

Full Turn

Full turn has two new drivers the Cruise and the Voyage.

  • Cruise – The Cruise is a high speed driver with a 2.3cm rim width. 13/5/-2/3
  • Voyage – The Voyage is another high speed direr with a feel similar to the Cruise. In terms of flight, the Voyage has a little more high speed stability than the cruise. 13/5/0/3

Gateway

Gateway has already released a new midrange, the Prophecy. As always, they continue to release the popular Wizard putter in new exciting plastic blends.

  • Prophecy – Slightly overstable Midrange. 5/5/0/2

Infinite Discs

Well the big news for Infinite Discs in 2018 is that we’ve partnered with Innova to introduce our own disc line. This line consists of modified existing Innova molds, expired molds, and new plastic blends. We’ve wasted no time getting our brand of discs out there and currently have eight discs released or in production. All eight of our new molds should be available by the beginning of summer.

  • Exodus – The Exodus is a stable flying fairway driver with the flight of a beat in TeeBird. 7/5/-0.5/2
  • Chariot – The Chariot is a stable midrange. It is very similar to the Mako3, but has a small microbead that makes it substantially more stable. 5/5/0/1
  • Pharaoh – The Pharaoh is a distance bomber. This disc has the height of the Destroyer but a slightly thicker rim and a flight path more similar to the Discmania DDx. Stock run Pharaoh’s will be available by the end of March. 13/6/-1/2

Soon to Come:

  • Myth – The Myth combines the elements of our top selling putters. It’s top is similar to the Discmania P2 but it has a bead on the edge of the rim which makes it more similar to the Gateway Wizard or Dynamic Discs Judge. The Myth will be available in April.
  • Sphinx – The Sphinx is an understable fairway driver that glides for days. We had this driver manufactured specifically for beginners. This is the first disc that will be featured in our new “Infinite” I-Blend plastic. This is an affordable blend that maintains the great feel of soft star plastic but at a more affordable price. The stock run of the Sphinx will be available in April.
  • Tomb – The Tomb is a flat top, low profile putt and approach disc. The bottom mold is very similar to the Innova Colt while the top is completely flat. This disc is surprising straight flying, but is stable enough that it is still great for forehand approach shots. The Tomb should be available in May.
  • Slab – The Slab brings home the beef. This thing is ridiculously overstable. It is similar to Innova’s Max mold, but has an almost completely flat top. The Slab should be available in June.
  • Anubis – This is a straight flying slightly understable midrange that is very similar to the Innova Coyote. This last disc in our new line should be available by early summer.

Innova

Innova has been pretty quiet about the new releases thus far this year. At the Las Vegas Challenge they released the Rat and from their product catalog we know a disc called the Caiman is in the works.

  • Rat – The Rat is a stable flat top approach disc that is supposed to be similar to the Westside Harp or Discraft Zone. The Rat will be available for retail sales on March 14th. 4/2/0/3

To be released:

  • Caiman – A new very overstable midrange. 5.5/2/0/4

Latitude 64

Latitude 64 has already released a driver, midrange, and putter this year. They continue to pump out lots of new molds in Sweden and there will surely be many more to come in 2017.

  • Ballista Pro – The Ballista Pro is said to have a great combination of speed, stability and glide; perfect for all kinds of distance shots. 14/4/0/3
  • Explorer – The Explorer fairway driver is Ricky Wysocki’s new signature disc. This is the classic stable control driver that with TeeBird flight ratings that Trilogy fans have been asking for for years. 7/5/0/2

Soon to Come:

  • Fuji – The Latitude 64 Fuji is the fourth double mold disc in Latitude’s line. It was PDGA appproved on January 29th and will be available in early spring.
  • Saxon – The Saxon is a fairway driver, and according to the Dynamic Discs product catalog, will be Latitude 64’s contribution to the Trilogy Challenge. This might not be accurate as the Trilogy Challenge info says that the Musket will be this years driver.
  • Musket – This is a fairway driver that will supposedly be part of this years Trilogy Challenge. We don’t know anything else about it, but it will likely be released in Lucid plastic and will be a pretty neutral driver.

MVP

As always, MVP is sure to have a large assortment of new plastic types and limited edition stamps to feed the collector frenzy. For actual new disc molds, the Deflector is currently the only disc we know of that is currently in the works.

  • Deflector – The MVP Deflector is a thin rimmed fairway driver. Some have speculated that will be a utility disc more overstable than the Matrix, but we really don’t have any official word on this disc yet. We know that the max PDGA weight is 179g, so it could be more like a thick rimmed midrange.
  • Entropy – The MVP entropy is a disc rumored to be a very overstable putter.

Ozone

Ozone discs has a new distance driver, the Hyperion.

  • Hyperion – This is a very overstable utility driver. 11/3/0/4

Prodigy

Prodigy is releasing new versions of their “H” series discs. They have already released their H3 V2 which has been very popular. Unlike the last H series, this version is supposed to be more traditional discs molds with rim widths between the F series and the X series. We expect to receive the new H5, an understable hybrid driver with a moderate rim. Look for special Utah Open additions of these new Prodigy molds coming soon.

  • H1 V2 – This retooled version of the super overstable H1 has a sharper rim which provides more speed, glide, and distance. The Prodigy H1 V2 will be available March 29th.
  • H3 V2 – The second version of the H3 is a straight flying moderate rimmed distance driver. 11/5/-1/2
  • H5The new Prodigy H5 is supposed to be an understable easy to fly driver.

To be released:

  • The H1 V2 – The second version of the H1 has also been PDGA approved and will likely release sometime this year.

Vibram

While Vibram won’t be making any new discs, they have made the disc golf news by declaring that they will cease disc golf operations in 2018. If you’re a Vibram fan, let not your heart be troubled as we still have a healthy stock of all the most popular Vibram molds and will be getting a large shipment from their last run.

Viking Discs

Viking Discs has three new discs that will be in stock at Infinite by the end of March. They include:

  • Valhalla – The Valhalla is a stable distance driver that supposedly provides more distance with less effort. 12/5/0/2
  • Barbarian – The Barbarian is looks to be the standard workhorse fairway driver. 7/5/0/2
  • Loki – The Loki is a VERY overstable midrange that is pretty similar to the Dynamic Discs Justice. 4/2/0/4

Westside

Westside will soon release three new discs:

  • Anvil– The Anvil is a super overstable utility midrange that should be similar to the DD Justice. This Westside Anvil will be available on May 25th. 4/4/0/4

  • Kui – Overstable midrange 5/5/0/2.5
  • Lu – High Speed Overstable driver 14/5 -1/3

Soon to come:

  • Twin Swords – This unique “triple mold” disc is a stable flying distance driver with a unique rim. 12/5/-1/2.5

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. Remember, Christmas is on Monday this year, so you’ll want to plan for delivery by Saturday the 23th at the latest.

Small_PackageSmall Packages:

Safe Order Deadline to arrive by Christmas: Saturday, December 16th.

For small packages (2 or less discs), towels, accessories, mini’s, etc. weighing less than 13oz, 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 Friday, December 16th.

Note, you can pay extra for the “Priority Upgrade” to ship any Priority Mail. In these cases, follow the medium Sized Packages guidelines.

MediamPackage_5890Medium Sized Packages:

Safe Order Deadline: Tuesday, December 19th

For Medium sized packages 3-11 discs we automatically ship USPS priority mail. 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.

IMG_5887Large Packages

Safe Order Deadline: Friday, December 15th

Large packages including baskets, 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. If you want one of these items to arrive by Christmas, you’ll likely be fine if your order is in by December 16th. To be safe, you’ll want it in by Thursday, the 15th.

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’s Too Late

If you want something internationally, it’s likely too late to get it by this Christmas. 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 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 you can making 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.

Stamp Wars 2018 – Submit Your Design

***Post Update, December 4, 2017. Voting is now live! To vote for the submitted stamps go to the “Stamp Wars Blog” InfiniteDiscs.com/StampWars

 

Vote Now


 

In 2017, Infinite Discs featured a duel between two stamps to see which would win in popularity and sales. The Aztec went up against the Tommy Cat and won. We then featured the Aztec stamp on many discs from several different manufacturers. Now it’s time to move on to the next battle…

STAMP WARS 2018

Infinite Discs is going to manage the battle differently this time. We’re inviting everybody with art skills who would like to submit a design to enter the fray. If you’ve got what it takes to make a stamp design that will both appeal to the disc golf public AND fit within the standard specs for disc stamping (see here and here as examples of those specs), then you’re welcome to enter!

We’re looking for one-color stamp designs, so all artwork should be submitted in black, just to keep it simple. For example, the stamp designs should look something like this:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Basically, you’ll want to make sure that there are not too many thick areas– solid black areas can trap bubbles beneath the foil and flake off. Plus you don’t want lines that are too thin– they too can flake off. You’ll want a relatively even balance of black space and empty space. Take a look at other stamps that you like and see how they have stayed within those specs.

TO SUBMIT A DESIGN…

We have a simple Google Form that you can read and submit when you have a design ready. You can submit up to three different designs, if you feel so inspired. But you’ll have to submit the form with each work of art.

The form is basically a way to declare that you are willingly submitting your original artwork (NOT somebody else’s) to be used in the Infinite Discs Stamp Wars contest. By submitting, you’ll be giving us permission to display your artwork for voting and for advertising the contest. You’ll also be allowing us to use that stamp on discs if you make it to the final four, or win the first place. The prizes for those winners will be the only compensation offered.

WHAT CAN YOU WIN?

Aside from the glory and bragging rights that come with victory, Infinite Discs will award a $100 gift card to each of the four finalists. Plus, the ultimate first place winner will receive an additional $250 gift card. Those gift cards can be used toward any products on the Infinite Discs website. Plus, you’ll be able to see your design flying through the skies on hundreds of discs!

WHAT IS THE DEADLINE?

All artwork submissions must be turned in by the end of November 2017. Then we’ll be able to launch the online voting in December so that the disc golf public and see all of the submitted stamp designs and pick their favorites. That gives you from now through November to polish and submit your designs.

HOW ARE WINNERS CHOSEN?

The initial voting will be online and the general public will basically cast their votes for their favorite stamps. The voting will be tallied at the very end of 2017 and we’ll announce the four finalists who have received the most votes in January, as a kick-off to the 2018 year. Those “final four” designs will ALL be stamped on an equal number of discs in an equal ratio of disc models. Once the discs are in stock, the final round will begin. The stamp that sells the most will decide the first place winner.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER RULES?

Well…yes. There are a couple of other rules. If a piece of artwork is submitted that simply won’t work as a stamp because the specs are ignored, then it will be disqualified. What is the point of having a design reach the finals that can’t physically be stamped on a disc?

Also, Infinite Discs has the right to reject any artwork which is considered tasteless or pornographic. Usually manufacturers won’t stamp those kinds of images on discs anyway, because they don’t want their brand associated with highly controversial images. We’re the same way.

The Joy of the Mystery Disc

There is a growing niche within the disc golf market that loves a pleasant surprise. This has become apparent with mystery boxes and mystery disc programs popping up from different retailers. Infinite Discs has been a leader in the mystery disc market and have now added a new program, alongside their longer-running programs that have grown over the last few years, like the Deals Box and the VIP Club

The Mystery Disc – Anytime You Want It!

Other disc sellers have joined the trend in selling mystery disc packages. One popular subscription program features a mystery disc plus mystery disc golf swag for $24.99 per month and has been received with open arms by hundreds of disc golf lovers who simply want to try something new without having to think about it. These usually aren’t custom stamped discs, yet still provide the element of surprise to the subscriber. The arrival of a monthly package in the mail is usually cause for excitement.

INFINITE DISCS is happy to introduce a way that customers can get a mystery disc anytime they want! This new program removes the subscription approach and is designed for those who simply want to try a new disc that is a complete surprise to them, but at an affordable price. Infinite Discs now has a Mystery Disc listed on the website, for those who want to buy one, or two, or more as part of their shopping trip. These are not necessarily custom stamped, or limited editions (though some mystery discs may have tournament or special stamps), but they are guaranteed to be premium plastic and high quality discs. Each Mystery Disc is only $12.

But here is an even easier way to get a mystery disc: If you just happen to be shopping the Infinite Discs website, you’ll also see an option during checkout that allows you to add a mystery disc to your package for only $12 extra, on top of your existing order. Plus, you can select to add mystery disc golf swag for another $8 in order to receive any item or combination of accessory items that amount to a value higher than $8. If you click to add one of each, then you’ll be paying only $20 for a mystery disc and mystery swag, and the best part is that you can do it whenever you want. If you don’t necessarily need a monthly surprise, then simply click to add a little mystery to your package every once in a while, when you’re in the mood. Don’t want to spend too much when you can’t afford to? Just be impulsive when you happen to have the extra money and you want a little surprise.

If you only want the mystery swag, which could include anything from a t-shirt in your specified size, a sportsack, towel, keychains, hats, etc. then you can just add it to your cart and check out.

Infinite Discs is always looking for ways to give our customers what they want at an affordable price, and in ways that are convenient to them.

Looking for Deals?

Infinite Discs has had the Deals Box as a product on our website for more than two years now, and it has steadily risen in demand. The boxes sell out quickly whenever a few more are added to inventory. At a price of $67.88, it’s a great deal considering that at least 6 of the 7 discs are guaranteed to be premium plastic blends (the putter can be a softer blend), with a mix of a putter, mid-ranges, plus both overstable and understable drivers. That’s less than $10 per disc. However, there is an element of surprise– either celebratory or disappointment when the box is opened, because the discs are a complete mystery to the buyer!

Some shoppers love the idea of trying out a bunch of randomly selected discs, even if a few are misprints or tournaments stamps, so they don’t really care what is inside the box. Other players are more selective in what they throw, so they run the risk of opening the box and finding discs that they don’t necessarily prefer or need. That’s the risk of a mystery box. But something keeps prompting shoppers to put these Deals Boxes in their cart. This product has remained the best-selling, non-specific disc product on the Infinite Discs website, and has sold far more than any other package set or disc golf starter set that we stock.

The VIP Club

In the spring of 2016, Infinite Discs launched its VIP Club, which is a subscription program that sends a unique, collectible, and completely unannounced disc to subscribers every month. Every month a shiny envelope arrives in the mail that contains a mystery disc. There are only enough discs made for the existing club members, making them instantly collectible and rare because the stamp design, and sometimes even the plastic blend, is unique for the club. Additional small items are usually thrown in the package with the disc, just for fun, like towels, minis, stickers, and other accessories. The opening of the shiny package each month is cause for great anticipation among VIP Club members who rush to post photos online and show-off their special editions. The support for the club has been wonderful, giving collectors and mystery disc lovers a monthly fix and something new to try from different disc makers.

However, the VIP Club isn’t for everybody. Some people really don’t want to spend $19.99 every month for the thrill of a mystery disc that may or may not be something they need. Yet still, there are club members who are very brand-specific in their tastes, but who subscribe because they know that their disc will most likely have a higher resale value than what they paid, when sold to somebody in the right collector market. Some subscribers are signed up for two each month, just because they want one to hang on the wall, and one to throw. Plus, VIP Club members have access to the VIP Club Store which features other uniquely stamped discs from time to time.

All of these programs and products are designed for those players and disc collectors who love the thrill of the unexpected.
