The Top-Selling Brands at Infinite Discs in 2021

Infinite Discs has always strived to keep discs from all disc golf brands and manufacturers in stock on our retail website. As some brands are discontinued or the supply becomes slim, those brands can disappear from our sales figures for long periods. Other new brands jump into the market and begin to show their strength with time. It is always fun after each year to pull up the count of the discs sold through our retail site to measure the growth of all the brands that we carried.

Here is a look at how those brands all measured up against one another for the year 2021. Please keep in mind that these sales statistics ONLY represent retail sales through Infinite Discs. It does not account for sales through other retailers and may not represent the entire disc golf marketplace. Plus, many brands have their own retail outlets in addition to their wholesale operations, and those sales may account for a large portion of the total sales for those particular brands and would not be calculated here.

The Infinite Discs brand also has inflated numbers through our retail site simply because we are traditionally known as a kay retail source for our own brand. Throughout all of 2021, Infinite Discs brand was also distributed to other retailers, both online and brick-and-mortar, but no wholesale numbers are reflected in this disc count. Again, this is only retail sales through Infinite Discs.

Charting the Sales

Innova remained the top-selling brand, as it has since Infinite Discs began in 2012. Discraft continues to build momentum, taking a strong #2 position. With the ups and downs of the supply chain in 2021, it is hard to know how the numbers would have looked if the most popular discs had been readily available at all times of the year. However, many popular discs went through repeated cycles where they would arrive, immediately sell out, then be missing from inventory for weeks or months before the next restock.

New Brands Making Moves

The number of small brands on the list continues to grow. We’re excited about that. Here are some brands that were recently created and made impressive moves on the chart:

Thought Space Athletics at #10 with their ultra-artistic, high-quality discs

Dino Discs at #11 with their line of discs for kids

Divergent Discs at #18 with their line focused on recreational players

Elevation Disc Golf at #19 with two silicone rubber discs launched in 2021

EV7 at #23 with their putters-only manufacturing approach

What Will 2022 Bring?

We’re excited to watch the disc sales in 2022 and see how things shuffle and move around. It should be particularly interesting to watch as we’ve seen a lot of professional players change brands for the new year. How will the sales for those brands be affected by the shuffle in sponsorships?

Feel free to leave your comments predicting the ups and downs of disc brands in 2022.

You can probably see a lot of blue on the chart, with a strong representation by Discraft in October, but also a lot of Infinite Discs models hitting the top 50. October is typically a slower month when it comes to disc sales, so it is interesting to see some of the brands that broke into the top 50 with new discs heading into the colder months. RPM hit the chart with the Pekapeka release, Cheengz with the Zingback, and Divergent held strong with the Alpas rubber disc.

Here is a look at how many times the different brands were in this month’s chart:

That’s your run-down for last month’s disc sales at Infinite Discs. Thanks for watching, and we hope you enjoy these charts and insights into the movements of the disc market as we see them. We’ll keep bringing you the Top 50 best-sellers every month, plus other sales data from time to time.

For now, we’re discontinuing the guessing game for each month, since interest has dropped in placing guesses. Thanks!

There were quite a few restocks of Infinite Discs molds last month and that helped to boost discs like the CHARIOT to the #1 and #2 spots, since it had not been available for a long time. The RUIN also came back in stock after a long wait, along with the Exodus and Maya. Many popular molds by Innova and Discraft made the rounds on the charts, moving up and down according to availability and supply.

The Elevation Disc Golf KOI had a very strong debut at #3 with the Divergent Discs ALPAS close behind in the #4 spot, showing a growing interest in rubber putt-and-approach discs. The APOLLO mid-range from the new brand, Alfa Disc Golf, also touched the top 50.

Here is a look at how many spots the different brands took last month:

The Guessing Game

Every month you’ll be able to place your guess for a certain spot on the chart for the next month. The first person to guess the disc and plastic type correctly for the named chart position will win a $20 gift card for the Infinite Discs online store.

— This month we had asked for a guess of the #5 spot. We messed up on the listing and comments were not able to be posted most of the month. Sorry about that! The Signature Envy was the winner there, but nobody guessed it. Our bad! We’ve got it right for this month.

Top 50 Best Selling Discs of July 2021

As a replacement to the Top 20 Tuesday, we now have the Top 50 monthly best sellers. This should be a more complete comparison of what was hot at Infinite Discs during the month, rather than a weekly stock report. We’re excited to see how it goes.

As was customary, we will count the disc AND plastic type for each spot, so it is possible that a single model could show up on the list several times, each time in a different plastic type. This also helps you to know which discs sold the most in which plastics.

Here are the top 50 bestselling discs of July 2021 at Infinite Discs:

In the number two spot on the chart is the R-Pro PIG which was finally restocked after a long absence. The D-Blend Alpaca putter, a special edition of the Buzzz, and the Halo Star Destroyer finish out the top 5. The chart was dominated by a lot of Ledgestone Edition discs from Discraft, with a good mix of MVP (some new R2 Neutron recycled releases), Innova, and Infinite Discs in there, among other brands. Latitude 64 made a good showing with a couple of good restocks like the Opto River and Opto Diamond, as well as the new Royal line discs, including the Trust mid-range and the Faith putter.

Here is a look at how many times the different brands showed up in the Top 50 for July:

Top 20 Tuesday Takes a Break…for Now

We’ve had a lot of run reviewing the Top 20 best-selling discs every Tuesday for years now. But we’ve decided to take a break from Top 20 Tuesday for the reasons explained below. But first, we need to congratulate JEFF who won the final guessing, picking the Signature Glow C-Blend SCEPTER as the #3 best seller. Good job!

 

Here’s why we’re taking a break…

For more than a year now, the best-sellers on the Infinite Discs store has basically been reduced to a stock report. Whatever came in that week was usually in the top 20, simply on the merits that it rolled through our door. We are living through a time of serious disc shortages, so weekly “best sellers” often have little to do with popularity and more to do with availability.

That’s not to say that the discs hitting the top 20 aren’t worthy. But often they are only there because they were available that week. Yes, they beat out other available models, but we’re not really seeing the most popular disc models duking it out week after week. In fact, some of the most popular disc models can go many weeks or months without being available at all. Imagine if certain disc like the P2 or the Zeus were actually available to purchase? But they don’t hit the chart simply because we don’t have them.

Here’s what we’re going to do…

Instead of posting what has amounted to weekly restock reports, we’re going to let the entire month go by and then compare sales. Having a month of sales data might create a more meaningful sales comparison. Of course, there will still be popular discs that won’t hit the monthly charts just because they were not available that month. But we feel like there’s a better chance for realistic comparisons this way. Plus, we’ll show the top 50 discs (with plastic types) every month.

You can still guess…

We’ve been giving away a $10 gift card to the first person to guess certain chart positions each week. We’re going to keep the guessing going on the monthly best-sellers. If you’re the first to guess the position for the monthly chart, we’ll send you a $20 gift card!

 

FOR THE MONTH OF JULY, if you can guess the #3 spot correctly, giving the disc model and plastic type, then we’ll set you up with a $20 gift card after publishing the list. You have to be the first person to guess that particular combination to win. Place your guesses in the comments!

Discraft took a share of the chart with a mix of restocks and Ledgestone editions. Innova took a number of spots with their popular models, though our supply has diminished.

The weekly chart continues to be driven by new releases and whatever happens to come back in stock that week, as supply continues to fall behind the demand for discs. Here is a look at how many times the different brands appeared on the chart this week:

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

WINNER – This week the #11 spot was the Cryztal Sparkle Buzzz SS. We’ve seen fewer correct guesses lately as the discs that hit the chart almost entirely reshuffle every week depending on what comes in stock. Nobody won this week, but give it a shot for next week.
