TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – FEBRUARY 19TH

Infinite Discs is happy to present another Top 20 Tuesday chart, looking back at the discs that sold the most during the last week. We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle position. It can be fun to see which discs keep up the pace.

Here we go…

Top Twenty Tuesday for February 19th, 2019

#1 – Paul McBeth Prototype Putter 
#2 – Signature ESP BUZZZ
#3 – ESP FORCE
#4 – D-Line P2
#5 – Star DESTROYER
#6 – Signature Elite Z ZONE
#7 – Opto RECOIL
#8 – Champion FIRESTORM

#18 – DX AVIAR
#19 – Champion Color Glow LEOPARD3
#20 – P-Line P2

Once again, the Paul McBeth Prototype putter, which we know will be called the LUNA, took the number one spot on the chart, and a couple other Paul McBeth signature discs from Discraft also hit the chart. We see his signature Buzzz at #2 and his signature Zone at #6, plus the ESP Force continues to sell very well. One of the most noticeable things on this chart is that the Star Destroyer is probably the lowest it has been in months at #5. That could have something to do with our diminishing supply at Infinite Discs (we’ll be getting more added to inventory soon).

Two new discs from Latitude 64 came out last week– the Opto RECOIL debuted at #7 while the Opto PIONEER debuted at #16.  Several other signature discs from Innova hit the store last week, including the Star Sonic, Color Glow Wraith, and more.  A special edition of the Champion Firestorm also pushed that lesser-known driver up to the #8 spot.

–> Each week we’ll invite you to leave a prediction for a certain chart position on next week’s TOP TWENTY TUESDAY report. The first three people to predict that chart position correctly in the comments will win a $10 gift card for the Infinite Discs website.

WINNER – Nobody guessed the that the Champion Firestorm would be #8 this week. That would have been a real shot in the dark! That special edition gave a disc that rarely gets close to the chart to the #8 spot. But but sure to guess for next week for a chance at a $10 gift card!

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – JANUARY 29TH 2019

Infinite Discs is happy to present another Top 20 Tuesday chart, looking back at the discs that sold the most during the last week. We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle position. It can be fun to see which discs keep up the pace.

Here we go…

Top Twenty Tuesday for JANUARY 29th, 2019

#1 – Signature ESP BUZZZ
#2 – ESP FORCE
#3 – Star DESTROYER
#4 – Signature Elite Z ZONE
#5 – Signature Titanium UNDERTAKER
#6 – D-Line P2
#7 – Metal Flake Glow C-Blend PHARAOH

#16 – I-Blend SPHINX
#17 – Signature Elite Z FORCE
#18 – Classic Burst WARDEN
#19 – S-Blend EXODUS
#20 – Champion FIREBIRD

The first thing you may notice on this week’s chart is that the Star Destroyer finally fell from the top spot. Yes, that happens from time to time, but it was crushed this week by the Signature Paul McBeth ESP Buzzz which, once restocked, sold like crazy. Other McBeth signature discs remain on the chart as well, including his signature editions of the Zone, Undertaker, and Force. Speaking of the Force, Infinite Discs put out a custom stamped edition on beautiful ESP plastic and it made a strong jump to the #2 spot. That left the Destroyer at #3.

Infinite Discs brand raided the chart this week due to a sale that ran for a few days last week. The Pharaoh took two spots in two different plastics as well as the Tomb flat-topped putt-and-approach disc taking two spots. In fact, Infinite Discs brand led the way in number of times appearing in the top 20 with Discraft and Innova tying with 5 spots each.

–> Each week we’ll invite you to leave a prediction for a certain chart position on next week’s TOP TWENTY TUESDAY report. The first three people to predict that chart position correctly in the comments will win a $10 gift card for the Infinite Discs website.

WINNER – The #20 spot is a hard one to pick, and it looks like nobody got it this time. Nobody guessed Champion Firebird as the #20 spot. I saw that somebody guess Neutron ION which is a valiant guess considering it had a special edition come out this last weekend, but that release pushed it beyond the #20 spot. Hopefully we get a winner next week!

Best Disc Golf Driving Putters

Disc Golf Tee Pad

It’s time for another post choosing the absolute “BEST” discs in another category (according to our unfortunately flawed opinions :))! Today, we will be looking at the best driving putters on the disc golf market.

What makes a putter a driving putter? the term “driving putter” Isn’t really a technical term when it comes to disc design and manufacturing. However, discs that are commonly referred to as driving putters are discs that fall into the traditional “Putt and Approach” classification. They are sometimes popular discs used for putting as well, but what makes them a driving putter is they are discs that perform well off the tee on shorter holes, usually about 300 feet or shorter. They are discs that can hold up when thrown with power for longer shots.

As always, we are using two key words when selecting our nominees and winners–popularity and utility. We are looking for popular driving putters that can be utilized by disc golfers of a variety of skill levels. For reference to popularity, here are the top 10 best selling putt and approach discs during the final quarter of 2018:

Top Selling Putt and Approach Discs

  1. Discmania P2 Psycho
  2. Axiom Envy
  3. Innova Aviar
  4. Westside Maiden
  5. Dynamic Discs Judge
  6. Dynamic Discs Warden
  7. Gateway Wizard
  8. Innova Nova
  9. Discraft Zone
  10. Westside Harp

Now, here are our nominees for The Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Driving Putter Disc.

Axiom Envy

The Axiom Envy is a slightly overstable putter that functions well as a driving putter. It has a flat top and features the signature gyro technology overmold. For driving, the Envy maintains a straight flight with a reliable soft overstable finish at the end of the flight.

Westside Harp

Here we have the recent winner of our best approach disc award, and the way it is used off the tee makes it a popular choice as a driving putter as well. The Westside Harp might be our most overstable disc nominated today, and some may argue this overstablility makes the Harp not a true driving putter. But the Harp is available in a lot of plastic blends, and these different plastic blends offer a variety of stability performances. The BT Hard Harp which was made popular by Ricky Wysocki is a more straight and stable flying Harp, so it is a great choice for those looking for a more mild Harp.

Dynamic Discs Judge

The Dynamic Discs Judge has always been a top seller ever since its release in 2012. The Judge is a beaded putter that is very popular both as a putting putter and a driving putter. Beaded putters are often popular choices for driving putters because they offer a little more stability so it can handle more power and a little more wind than their beadless counterparts. The Judge is no exception to this. It is a great, straight flying putter that is very predictable and easy to learn to use.

Innova Nova

The Innova Nova was nominated in our approach discs article, but not in our putters article because approaching and driving is really where this disc excels. It is one of the most unique discs on the market featuring an overmold design that allows this disc to fly very very straight for a long time. It is a true stable flyer, meaning when thrown on a straight flat line, it holds that line very well with nearly no fade at the end. The Innova Nova is a true driving putter.

Discmania P2

The Discmania P2 has been topping the sales charts over the last couple of years. The P2 is a popular choice for putting and driving. in the best putters post, I mentioned that Discmania does a good job of differentiating the different plastic blends and the benefits of each blend. This is especially applicable for the driving aspect of the P2. The S-Line P2 is a more overstable driving putter, while the D-Line P2 is a great hyzer-flip driving putter for more understable flights.

Prodigy PA-4

All of the discs in Prodigy‘s PA series are popular choices for driving putters, but the one that we are nominating is the PA-4. The PA-4 has a unique rounded rim and is often referred to more as a driving putter than a putting putter. It offers a pretty straight to understable flight pattern and is available in pretty much all of the Prodigy plastic blends.

Dynamic Discs Warden

The Warden was nominated in our best putters article, and there I explained that is basically a beadless Judge. That is interesting when you look at those two discs as driving putters. The Warden is straight to understable off the tee with lots of glide. It is great as a straight flyer, maybe the only disc on this list that can compare to the Nova in the way it holds a line with minimal fade at the end.

Gateway Wizard

The Gateway Wizard won our best putter award, and in that article we mentioned how the Wizard is also a popular driving putter choice. Similar to the Judge, it has a bead and a deeper dish which allows for lots of glide and a smooth and soft overstable finish at the end of the flight. Also the Wizard is available in a bunch of plastic blends so whether you like a soft or stiff driving putter, you can find a Wizard that will work for you. straight flying putter that can be lethal from distance as well.

Discraft Zone

I may have spoken too soon when I said that the Harp was the most overstable disc nominated today. The Discraft Zone is another flat topped and overstable driving putter that has always been a popular choice for approach and driving off the tee. It has a comfortable rim for forehand shots off the tee as well. Again, this may not fit the “mold” as a traditional driving putter, but the Discraft Zone is a popular and reliable choice for shots off the tee, so it has earned a nomination today.

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – JANUARY 22nd 2019

Infinite Discs is happy to present another Top 20 Tuesday chart, looking back at the discs that sold the most during the last week. We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle position. It can be fun to see which discs keep up the pace.

Here we go…

Top Twenty Tuesday for JANUARY 22nd, 2019

#1 – Star DESTROYER
#2 – Signature Titanium UNDERTAKER
#3 – Signature Elite Z FORCE
#4 – XT BULLFROG
#5 – Star WRAITH
#6 – Champion FIREBIRD
#7 – DX X-Out ROC3
#8 – K3 REKO
#9 – Origio Burst MAIDEN
#10 – C-Line Luster FD
#11 – D-Line P2
#12 – XT Mix NOVA
#13 – Signature Elite Z ZONE
#14 – KC Pro AVIAR
#15 – C-Line PD Freak
#16 – ESP VULTURE
#17 – Star X-Out DESTROYER
#18 – Star LEOPARD3
#19 – Star SHRYKE
#20 – K3 BERG

The Star Destroyer absolutely destroyed the chart, wiping out any other top contenders in this week’s sales. A lot of that has to do with the fact that we got a big restock of Ricky Wysocki Destroyers, while we ran out of Paul McBeth signature discs. More of those are coming from Discraft soon, so the numbers should swing a bit in that regard.

We see a couple of X-Out (factory 2nd) entries into the chart this week as well as we also got a big restock of misprints and factory 2nd discs from Innova. Another restock that made a splash was the much needed restock of Kastaplast discs, boosting both the Reko and Berg putters into the top 20 for this week.

Here is a chart showing the number of times that different brands appeared in this week’s chart:

–> Each week we’ll invite you to leave a prediction for a certain chart position on next week’s TOP TWENTY TUESDAY report. The first three people to predict that chart position correctly in the comments will win a $10 gift card for the Infinite Discs website.

WINNER – The #12 spot was the pick for this week’s chart and we saw four people get it right with the XT Mix Nova as their guess. We’ll go ahead and give those four people the gift card for this week. But get your guess in early because we’re going to make sure we only pick three if there are a lot of same guesses coming in the future. Congratulations Steven, Dawson, Drew, and Matthew!

Best Disc Golf Roller Discs

Well, the holidays are over, and it is the dreaded disc golf off season! But we at Infinite Discs are doing our best to make the snow and cold more bearable! It is time for the next article in our best discs series. Today, we are announcing the nominees for The Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Discs: Roller Disc. It has been a couple weeks, so just to review, the two key words we always use when choosing our best discs are popularity and utility. The utility part of this equation is a little tougher when it comes to roller discs, because a roller shot is generally a skill shot that is executed by more experienced disc golfers. However, we will try to include popular discs and ones that are good for learning how to throw the roller. This is a difficult category, because the roller can be executed in a variety of ways with a variety of discs. All that being said, here are our nominees!

 

Prodigy F7

The Prodigy F7 is considered THE roller disc in the Prodigy lineup. It is their most understable fairway driver, and it is available in lots of weights and plastic blends. Prodigy is sometimes considered not beginner friendly because their discs tend to be less understable, but the F7 is a great choice for learning the roller, and continuing to use as your game improves.

 

Discmania FD

The Discmania FD was nominated in our best beginner discs, and in that post I mentioned how the D-Line FD is noticeably more understable than the other plastic types. A lighter weight might be too understable for roller shots, but a heavier D-Line FD is a great choice for learning the roller shot and executing it with consistency.

 

Latitude 64 Fury

The Latitude 64 Fury has become somewhat of a forgotten disc in the Trilogy lineup of discs with all the new releases they have come out with in recent years. But the Fury remains as one of the great understable fairway drivers in their lineup that is great for air shots and rollers. It is a great roller disc for golfers of all skill levels.

 

Westside Hatchet

Similar to the Fury, the Westside Hatchet feels like a somewhat forgotten disc in the Trilogy lineup of discs. But for those who have been using both of these discs, many would find it hard to replace them. The Westside Hatchet performs a bit more understable than it’s flight ratings indicate. It is a fantastic fairway driver that disc golfers of all skill levels use not just for rollers, but also long turning air shots.

 

Innova Leopard

This is the third nomination for the Innova Leopard. This is one of the most popular fairway drivers for beginners and experienced disc golfers, and it can be used in a variety of ways. The Leopard is a great choice for learning and executing the roller shot that is available in a variety of plastic blends.

 

MVP Orbital

The MVP Orbital is an extremely understable distance driver that works well as a distance roller disc. This disc is a great first distance driver for newer golfers. Then as those beginners’ arm speeds improve, the Orbital can then be used by those same players as a roller disc.

 

 

Westside Queen

The Westside Queen is by far the highest speed disc on this list. Generally Fairway drivers are chosen for roller discs, but the Westside Queen is very understable for how fast it is, and it allows for a lot of air time before it makes contact with the ground and begins its roll, which makes it a good choice for longer distance rollers and ones in a more open fairway.

 

Innova Sidewinder

This disc was also nominated in our beginner discs post, and in that blurb I mentioned that it has grown in popularity as a roller disc. The Innova Sidewinder has been a popular choice for players of all skill levels for a long time. Newer players may have a hard time rolling a max weight Sidewinder, but they should be able to work with the lighter weights. Part of what makes the Sidewinder so popular is its use for hyzer-flip air shots and roller shots.

THE INFINITE DISCS BEST DISC GOLF DISC: ROLLER DISC

INNOVA SIDEWINDER

This is the Innova Sidewinder‘s second nomination and first win. Like was mentioned above, this category is especially subjective, but for disc golfers of any skill level who want to learn how to throw a roller, the Sidewinder is a great choice. The Sidewinder is an understable driver that offers a nice smooth turning flight pattern that can easily be manipulated for rollers. So whether you are new to the roller or a roller veteran, the Innova Sidewinder is a fantastic disc to throw.

Top Selling Discs–Q4 of 2018

Happy New Year! We are so excited here at Infinite Discs to see what 2019 will hold with lots of changes happening in the disc golf world. How will these changes impact the sales charts? Only time will tell! Today we will review the top selling discs of the final quarter of 2018. This report is usually influenced by the holiday sales deals and is a good review of the discs we wanted to stock up on in the offseason. So let’s get to the sales reports!

Top 10 Overall

  1. Innova Destroyer
  2. Discmania P2 Psycho
  3. Discraft Buzzz
  4. Infinite Discs Pharaoh
  5. Axiom Envy
  6. Innova Aviar
  7. Innova Wraith
  8. Discmania FD Jackal
  9. Innova Firebird
  10. Westside Maiden

Like I said, the holiday sales influence the numbers for this quarter, and we can see that influence reaching all the way into the top 10 overall with discs like the Infinite Discs Pharaoh, Axiom Envy, and newly released Westside Maiden. The Discraft Buzzz bumped up to number 3. This may be just because the Buzzz is always popular around Halloween with the traditional Halloween Buzzz, but it is also noteworthy considering the Paul McBeth announcement that came out near the end of the quarter. It will be very interesting to see how that influences the numbers next quarter. If you aren’t sure Paul McBeth influences the sales, it is worth noting that the top 3 discs on this chart have now at one point in time had his signature on it.

 

Top Distance Drivers

  1. Innova Destroyer
  2. Infinite Discs Pharaoh
  3. Innova Firebird
  4. Innova Wraith
  5. Innova Shryke
  6. Innova Valkyrie
  7. Innova Boss
  8. Discmania PD Freak
  9. Innova Beast
  10. MVP Tesla

All of the discs here have been on this chart before. The Infinite Discs Pharaoh made a pretty big jump up the chart going from number 6 last quarter up to number 2. The Discmania PD Freak and MVP Tesla returned to the top 10 after not making it last quarter. Again, it will be interesting to see how the Destroyer performs over the next year with Ricky Wysocki now featured as the signature on the stock Star Destroyer.

Top Control/Fairway Drivers

  1. Discmania FD Jackal
  2. Innova Thunderbird
  3. Innova Teebird
  4. Innova Leopard3
  5. Innova Leopard
  6. Innova Roadrunner
  7. MVP Volt
  8. Infinite Discs Sphinx
  9. Discraft Undertaker
  10. Dynamic Discs Escape

I think one of the biggest surprises of this entire article is the Discraft Undertaker jumping in at the number 9 spot. This disc has not been on the top sales list since it was first released. We can already see the Paul McBeth move influencing these sales numbers, and with his new signature series Undertaker releasing in January, the Undertaker may be a new staple on this chart.

Top Midrange Discs

  1. Discraft Buzzz
  2. Innova Roc3
  3. Innova Mako3
  4. Innova Roc
  5. Dynamic Discs EMac Truth
  6. Discraft Comet
  7. MVP Deflector
  8. Discmania MD4
  9. Discmania MD3
  10. Infinite Discs Chariot

Like the distance drivers, all of these discs have been featured in the top 10 before. The Discmania MD4 hasn’t been on the top 10 at all in 2018, so this one breaking in was a bit of a surprise. The Discraft Comet jumped up to number 6 which is the highest it has been in recent memory. Not to sound like a broken record, but it really looks like that Paul McBeth and Discraft deal was already paying dividends to Discraft before it officially began.

Top Putt and Approach Discs

  1. Discmania P2 Psycho
  2. Axiom Envy
  3. Innova Aviar
  4. Westside Maiden
  5. Dynamic Discs Judge
  6. Dynamic Discs Warden
  7. Gateway Wizard
  8. Innova Nova
  9. Discraft Zone
  10. Westside Harp

The Westside Maiden premiering at the number 4 spot is pretty impressive considering how crowed the Putt and Approach category is. This could be because of the unique holiday editions we ran in BT Hard Burst Moonshine plastic. I could comment on how the Discraft Zone breaking back into the top 10 might have something to do with Paul McBeth…but I will spare you all :).

And that does it for 2018! What will 2019 have in store for us? It’s going to be another fun year of disc golf, and we at Infinite Discs are excited to be on the ride with you all.
