Introducing FlighTowel

Infinite Discs Welcomes FlighTowel!



We’re here to introduce you to the newest towel on our site, FlighTowel! This towel comes in three different forms: FlighTowel, FlighTowel JR, and FlighTowel Mini.



The FlighTowel

The FlightTowel brings new innovation to warming up for disc golf, with the utility of a towel to dry your discs. The FlighTowel comes with a Disc Fob attached, made from a real disc. When purchasing your FlighTowel, you can select a Disc Fob that suits your game!

To warm up, hold the FlighTowel by the Fob and pull through across your chest, as demonstrated in the video below. There is a pocket on the bottom of the towel to add some drag, more realistically simulating weight and resistance.

When you’re done warming up, tuck the fob in your back pocket and use the towel to keep your discs dry for the rest of the game. The FlighTowel is awesome for warming up on the course, staying hot during the round, or even practicing at home. Check our our selection of FlighTowels here!


The FlighTowel JR

The FlighTowel JR is made from the same premium microfiber as the original FlightTowel, but without the fob. This is the biggest towel that FlighTowel makes, coming in at 16″ x 24″. This towel features a carabiner mounted in the middle of the towel, a unique feature that we love! This allows the disc to hang from your bag or cart without dragging on the ground. This keeps your towel clean while still having a large surface area to dry your discs off. See our selection of FlighTowel JR here!

 


The FlighTowel Mini

The FlighTowel Mini is a smaller version of the FlighTowel JR. The Mini features a center mounted adjustable bungee. This is a 16″ x 16″ microfiber towel.

Pick your bungee color and you’re all set! Use this towel on your bag, cart, or wrist during your round.

This, and the other FlighTowels, are truly towels like no other. See our selection of FlighTowel Mini here!

Distance Driver Sales Race – Animated Graphs

Here at Infinite Discs, we love looking at statistics. The numbers always help tell a story of how the disc golf market is moving, at least when it comes to measuring how our own customers are responding to new discs or different brands. This week we thought it would be a lot of fun to make a video chart which shows actual movement of those trends through time.

Hot Distance Drivers

We know that distance drivers are considered the sports car of the disc golfer’s bag. It is one of the discs that almost every player feels defines them, their abilities, or their play style. It is one of those discs that players often swap when they feel like they need to revolutionize their game, so new distance drivers tend to get a lot of sales movement when they are first released.

That is why we thought it would be fun to track the movement of some popular, established distance drivers side-by-side with new distance drivers as they entered the market during the past 11 months. The ten distance drivers that we decided to track include some new ones that only came out in 2020, but we wanted to see how much attention they might have pulled away from the more established discs. These are the distance drivers we chose to track:

Destroyer (always a hot seller)
Wraith (another popular Innova seller)
Shryke (a somewhat newer driver by Innova)
Photon (a top-selling MVP driver)
DD3 (the new 2020 driver by Discmania)
Raider (the new 2020 driver by Dynamic Discs)
Trespass (a popular driver by Dynamic Discs before the Raider)
Pharaoh (a relatively new driver by Infinite Discs)
Force (an old driver by Discraft which became a McBeth signature disc in 2020)
Zeus (the first distance driver in McBeth’s own disc line)

This particular selection of discs lets us measure how Paul McBeth affected the market when moving from Innova to Discraft as his brand sponsor in 2020, how new discs affected other brands, how they compared to discs of their own brand (like the Raider vs the Trespass), how market hype can play into sales, and how availability may stifle the momentum of a new release.

The Percentage Animated Graph

This first animated graph is designed to show which disc was grabbing the larger percentage of the market through the movement of time from October 2018 through August 2019. That means that we take the total sales of these 10 distance drivers, add those sales together, and compare the percentages of that total that each one grabbed.

For example, the Destroyer may have been holding 40% of the total sum of sales for those 10 discs for a couple of months, but then a new driver comes out and grabs 40% of the total sales that particular week. That would make the Destroyer percentage drop, even though it may still be selling the same quantity as the previous months, simply because there is only 100% available for those 10 discs to share. This chart helps us to see which discs were grabbing attention at any given moment. The time line will appear at the bottom of the chart.

For your viewing pleasure, here is that October 2018 – August 2019 animated chart (click the play button to activate the graph):

You’ll notice that as the new 2020 discs entered the market, they grabbed a percentage of the sales for a moment, but sometimes didn’t keep that momentum, either because of limited availability or the hype didn’t last. For example, availability of both the DD3 and the Raider was fairly limited when they were first released and it took a little time for regular stock releases to give them a boost.

The Zeus went through huge spikes depending upon availability and the releases of the prototype (originally called the Kong), the first run, and ending with the August release of the limited edition Big Z Zeus– thus the spike at the end of the video when it grabbed a huge percentage of total sales.

You’ll also noticed that the Destroyer sales moved up as Paul McBeth announced his change of sponsors, while players and collectors grabbed his old signature edition before the end of 2019. It got another boost with the new Wysocki edition.

The Force sales at Discraft started to rise based on speculation about what he would throw, and then the announcement came of the Force as a McBeth signature disc. But then the Force died down as the attention turned to the Zeus, which as a disc in Paul’s own line, was grabbing more attention than the Force.

The Race – Total Sales Animated Graph

Now for a look at a chart that takes less explanation. This is very straight-forward. We totaled the sales through time, adding to the total with new sales from October 2018 through August 2019. This allows us to watch the total sales for that period like a race where the disc that sells the most by the end is the winner.

So, rather than comparing percentage of sales, we’re just adding sales for each separate disc. Will the slow-but-steady disc end up selling most in the end? Or will the spikes on new releases help boost the newcomers to the winning position?

For your viewing pleasure, here is that October 2018 – August 2019 animated race (click the play button to activate the graph):

It’s pretty obvious that the steady sales of the Destroyer kept it far enough ahead that even the spikes on new releases, including the Zeus, could not boost those newcomers to the lead. The Zeus finished in 2nd place, getting enough large spikes to push its totals up, but not high enough to take the win. The Wraith, even with it’s slow and steady sales, gave it the 3rd place title, with the Infinite Discs Pharaoh following closely behind.

We hope that you’ve enjoyed these animated charts. Watch them over and over and see what kind of analysis you can offer in the comments below.

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.

Discraft’s Paul McBeth Prototype Anax & First Run Zeus

Prototype Anax & First Run Zeus

The day is almost here! The Prototype Anax & First Run Zeus release Friday, July 12 at midnight eastern time. You can find the Anax here and the Zeus here at that exact time! They come in beautiful colors and many have great swirls in them. The ESP plastic feels very good!


The Anax

The Anax (pronounced “Onyx” according to Discraft) is Paul McBeth’s newest signature driver. It’s a few notches slower than the Zeus, coming in at a speed 10. Beginners may find this disc to be overstable, but more advanced players will find the Anax goes straight for a long time, maximizing it’s 6 glide rating to the fullest before fading out at the end of the flight. We made a quick video review about the Anax:

 


The Zeus

Formerly known as the Kong, the Zeus is Paul McBeth’s go-to signature distance driver.

This is an overstable distance driver, similar to a Destroyer in flight. Previously, we’ve only had access to Prototype Zeus/Kongs. Now, this release presents to us the First Run edition of the Zeus.


Be sure to pick yours up tonight at midnight eastern!

Tracking the Pharaoh and Emperor Run Numbers

When Infinite Discs first launched our own disc brand with manufacturing by Innova, we wanted to make sure that each run had its own identification. We’re aware that different runs of the same mold in different plastics and at different times can have slight variations. Because of that, we figured that players who fell in love with certain runs or who sought specific characteristics would appreciate a way to know which one they have, which one they want, etc.

When we create a stock stamp, that run number and the run quantity (number of discs in the run) is displayed on the stamp at the bottom. With some of the limited editions and signature editions, the run number and quantity is not necessarily described on the stamp. But we still want you to know what you’re getting.

Here is a quick run-down of the runs that have been produced and ordered for the Pharaoh and the Emperor as of May 2019, for your reference:

THE PHARAOH

PROTOTYPE:
Swirly S-Blend
Quantity 224
This run came out flat with a moderate fade. 

RUN 1:
Swirly S-Blend

This run came out relatively flat with a moderate fade. A few of these were released in Garrett Gurthie signature edition.

RUN 2:
Swirly S-Blend
Quantity 1100 (plus 88 “Test Run” stamp)
This run had more dome on the flight plate than the first run and slightly less fade for some players. Some of these were released in Garrett Gurthie signature edition with a new stamp.

RUN 3:
I-Blend
Quantity 1100 (plus 120 “Test Run” stamp)
This run was again quite flat, but more understable than any of the S-Blend runs.

RUN 4:
Metal Flake Glow C-Blend
Quantity 1000 (plus 79 “Test Run” stamp)
This run turned out very domey with a lot of glide and more overstable than the other runs. This run featured an XXL Alien Pharaoh stamp and also a bottom stamp.

Quantity 1203
This run is once again flat, like the first run, with more color variety.

THE EMPEROR

This run was the introductory run and had an early release with a unique stamp at the 2019 Las Vegas Challenge tournament. The X-Outs were released on the Ides of March as a teaser, with stock stamp following. This is a more understable run, though it still has plenty of fade for average players.

RUN 2:
Splatter S-Blend
Quantity 900 (plus 133 “Test Run” stamp)
This run turned out much more overstable than the first run and was made to release primarily as a David Feldberg signature edition disc for 2019.
