TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – APRIL 16TH 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 April 16th, 2019

#1 – ESP KONG
#2 – Swirly Star EAGLE
#3 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#4 – Star CORVETTE
#5 – D-Line P2
#6 – Star DESTROYER
#7 – Active Baseline GUARDIAN LION
#8 – Signature C-Line Colored Glow FD2
#9 – ESP BUZZZ
#10 – Active Baseline SUN CROW
#11 – Active Baseline FOX SPIRIT
#12 – Jawbreaker Glo ZONE
#13 – Champion Colored Glow FIREBIRD
#14 – Signature ESP BUZZZ
#15 – Z Color Shift BUZZZ
#16 – ESP COMET
#17 – Elite Z RAPTOR
#18 – Active Baseline SPRING OX
#19 – Full Foil Super Color NUKE
#20 – Champion FIREBIRD

The KONG held onto the #1 spot this week and it will be interesting to watch how long it can hold onto that position…probably for as long as the inventory is available for the prototype run. Coming in at the #2 spot was the new signature Gregg Barsby Swirly Star EAGLE which came into stock and sold out quickly at Infinite Discs. The LUNA putter held the #3 spot with the new Star CORVETTE taking #4. The Corvette sales were boosted by a 2-foil limited edition that was released by Innova.

Also note the presence of all but one of the new Active Baseline discs by Discmania. The GUARDIAN LINE was the highest on the chart at #7, with the SUN CROW at #10, FOX SPIRIT at #11, and the SPRING OX at #18.  The remaining disc in that new line is the SEA SERPENT, which would have come in at #21 (just missed the chart by a one disc margin).

It is also interesting to see that the BUZZZ mid-range by Discraft took three spots on this week’s chart, with the Signature ESP edition, regular ESP edition, and the Z Color Shift Ledgestone edition as well. Here is how the brands stacked up this week when counting the number of times their discs appeared on the chart, with only three brands dominating all the spots:

WINNER – The #10 spot this week was the Active Baseline SUN CROW, one of the new base plastic discs by Discmania.  There were some good guesses, including somebody who guessed the Swirly Star Eagle which hadn’t been released yet (very good forward-looking guess!) but nobody seems to have seen those Active Baseline discs coming. Keep in mind that you have a good chance of guessing right if you pick something that you know is coming up soon.

Top Twenty Tuesday for April 9th, 2019

#1 – ESP KONG
#2 – Fuzion RAIDER
#3 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#4 – Star DESTROYER
#5 – D-Line P2
#6 – Metal Flake C-Blend RA
#7 – Signature ESP BUZZZ
#8 – Nexus AVIAR DRIVER
#9 – Star CORVETTE
#10 – Jawbreaker Glo ZONE
#11 – Champion Colored Glow FIREBIRD
#12 – ESP COMET
#13 – Elite Z RAPTOR
#14 – Classic GUARD
#15 – C-Blend RA
#16 – Star WRAITH
#17 – ESP BUZZZ
#18 – ESP Glo BUZZZ
#19 – I-Blend X-Out EMPEROR
#20 – DX AVIAR

With a big restock of Discraft KONG discs hitting the Infinite Discs website, that disc rocketed to the top of the chart again, demolishing all of the competition. The 2nd place disc was the new first run Fuzion RAIDER by Dynamic Discs, and in all honesty, the sales of that disc would have been higher if we’d been prepared and had more of them in stock. The anticipation for the Raider was higher than we expected. The LUNA putter took 3rd place, pushing last week’s #1 Destroyer back to #4.

Other honorable mentions go to the Infinite Discs RA which had a stock release and was on sale for the weekend, pushing it to #6 in Metal Flake C-Blend, and to #15 in C-Blend plastic.  The newest putter from Dynamic Discs, the GUARD also stands out at #14.

There were also two Ledgestone special edition discs from Discraft that pushed into the chart this week: the Jawbreaker Glo ZONE jumped in at the #10 spot while the ESP Glo BUZZZ took the #18 spot. The special edition ESP COMET stamp released by Infinite Discs pushed that mid-range to the #12 position, giving Discraft the edge again with number of times on the chart for this week:

WINNER – The #4 spot this week was the Star Destroyer as it was pushed back by the hot-selling Kong, Luna, and new Raider. The first to guess Star Destroyer, according to comment time stamps, was JACK.  A few other guesses came in for Star Destroyer, but Jack was the first, so congratulations!

Top Selling Discs–Q1 of 2019

The weather is warming up, Spring has sprung, and the 2019 disc golf season has begun! It’s April, which means it is time to once again take a look at our top selling discs of the first quarter! As we go through the top sellers, we will see a lot of changes from last quarter. Most of those changes can be traced back to one person…yep, Paul McBeth!

Top 10 Overall

  1. Innova Destroyer
  2. Discraft Buzzz
  3. Discmania P2 Psycho
  4. Innova Firebird
  5. Discraft Luna
  6. Discraft Zone
  7. Discraft Force
  8. Innova Wraith
  9. Infinite Discs Pharaoh
  10. Discmania FD Jackal/Dynamic Discs Judge

If you are still of the belief/delusion that Paul McBeth doesn’t influence sales numbers, hopefully looking at this overall top 10 and comparing it to all of the top 10 charts from last year will be enough to change your mind. Paul’s signature has been printed on over half of these discs at some point in time. While it isn’t unheard of for new releases to crack into the top 10, the Luna debuting at number 5 is very impressive. Also the Discraft Force has never been on this or the distance driver top 10 list. For what it’s worth, if March had been one day longer, we’d probably have another McBeth disc on this top 10 list (the Kong). So overall I think it is safe to say that Discraft has taken full advantage of adding Paul to their team so far. Discraft numbers are way up across the board here at Infinite Discs.

 

Top Distance Drivers

  1. Innova Destroyer
  2. Innova Firebird
  3. Discraft Force
  4. Innova Wraith
  5. Infinite Discs Pharaoh
  6. Innova Shryke
  7. Discraft Kong
  8. Innova Valkyrie
  9. Innova Boss
  10. Innova Orc

The previously mentioned new Discraft Kong made it all the way to number 7 on the distance driver chart after selling out in just a few hours on its release date. I think it will be interesting to see how the Force and the Kong perform in sales throughout the rest of the year since McBeth mostly used one distance driver with Innova–the Destroyer. Of course, that might be the key–how much McBeth uses either disc. Beyond the new Discraft additions, it is mostly more of the same for the distance driver category this quarter.

Top Control/Fairway Drivers

  1. Discmania FD Jackal
  2. Discraft Undertaker
  3. Innova Teebird
  4. Innova Thunderbird
  5. Innova Leopard3
  6. Axiom Insanity
  7. Innova Leopard
  8. Innova Roadrunner
  9. Innova TeeBird3
  10. Dynamic Discs Escape

Last quarter I mentioned that the Discraft Undertaker surprised me by cracking into the top 10 at the number 9 spot. Well, it made another big jump this quarter finishing as the number 2 fairway driver. The big surprise this quarter is the Axiom Insanity coming in at number 6. The high sales numbers this quarter are primarily because of the special release Axiom did for their new Prism plastic blend. We also see the Innova TeeBird3 cracked back into the top 10.

Top Midrange Discs

  1. Discraft Buzzz
  2. Innova Roc3
  3. Innova Roc
  4. Innova Mako3
  5. Dynamic Discs EMac Truth
  6. Discraft Comet
  7. Discmania MD3
  8. Discraft Buzzz OS
  9. Infinite Discs Anubis
  10. Kastaplast Gote

The top 7 on this chart is pretty business as usual with only a couple of small shifts from last quarter’s top 10. But the last 3 are all new names to this list, or they at least haven’t been on the list for a while (looking at you Discraft Buzzz OS). One of the biggest surprises of this whole article for me is the newly released Kastaplast Gote finishing as the 10th best selling midrange. New releases have a tendency of making surprise appearances in these top charts, but this might be the first Kastaplast mold to crack into a top 10, which may be an indication that the small Swedish disc manufacturer is continuing to grow into the mainstream.

Top Putt and Approach Discs

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

There aren’t too many surprises here besides the two Discraft molds making such a big jump up the charts. The Dynamic Discs Deputy made it back into the top 10 after not making it last quarter. Also the Westside Harp is the lowest it has been ever since making the top 10 if I remember right. It will be interesting to see how the Harp performs throughout the year now that Ricky Wysocki is not throwing it and Paul McBeth is throwing a similar mold in the Discraft Zone.

And that’s all we have for this quarter! What will the next 3 months of sales look like? Was there anything that surprised you this quarter? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

Top Twenty Tuesday for April 2nd, 2019

#1 – Star DESTROYER
#2 – Signature ESP BUZZZ
#3 – Signature C-Line Colored Glow FD2
#4 – Star CORVETTE
#5 – Champion Colored Glow FIREBIRD
#6 – Star WRAITH
#7 – D-Line P2

#16 – Origio Burst MAIDEN
#17 – Electron Firm ENVY
#18 – Signature Swirly S-Line P2
#19 – GStar DESTROYER
#20 – Champion FIREBIRD

We saw a more “settled” chart during the last week as the Discraft KONG and LUNA vanished completely due to the fact that they completely sold out at Infinite Discs the week before. Now that we’re restocked, you can expect those to be right back in the chart next week.  So, the Star DESTROYER went back to number one, which is a familiar location for that disc. The Signature ESP Buzzz (McBeth edition) held a strong 2nd place with the new Colored Glow FD2 coming in a strong 3rd.

Other popular discs on the chart were the new Star CORVETTE, the Z RAPTOR (still holding on as a new release), the Origion Burst MAIDEN which has been a hot new putter for Westside Discs, and the new GATEKEEPER.  Other regulars came back on the chart, like the Star Wraith, Champion Firebird, etc.

Here is how the brands stacked up this last week in terms of number of times that they appeared on the chart:

WINNER – The #6 spot this week was the Star Wraith, making a strong comeback as a popular seller when it comes to drivers. Nobody picked the Star Wraith to quietly come back to the #6 spot, so nobody takes the gift card this week. But give this coming week a try!

#18 – Signature Elite Z ZONE
#19 – 400 X-Out D1 MAX
#20 – Elite Z BUZZZ

For anybody who knew in advance that the KONG was being released last Friday (which apparently was a lot of people) it was no surprise that that new disc from Discraft’s Paul McBeth line would take the top spot this week. Coming in 2nd place was the Axiom INSANITY in the new Prism plastic– the first time we’ve seen a durable translucent rim on products from MVP / Axiom. The LUNA first run putter followed up closely in 3rd place. In strong 4th place went to the new RAPTOR from Discraft and 5th place went to the ever-popular Sexton glow FIREBIRD.

The Discraft BUZZZ mid-range took three spots in this week’s top 20 with strong showings in the McBeth Signature ESP edition, the regular ESP edition, and the regular Elite Z edition. Two other strong movers this week were the Fission PHOTON and the Plasma MOTION by MVP.

The brand chart looks quite impressive for Discraft this week, where they took the most places on the chart with seven of the top 20, while Innova follows closely behind with 6 spots:

WINNER – The #5 spot this week was the Sexton Champion Colored Glow FIREBIRD and we had a few people give that disc a guess. We’ll give it to the first three who guessed right, so congratulations to Derek, Christopher, and Clint!

Top Twenty Tuesday for March 19th, 2019

#1 – Star CORVETTE
#2 – Champion Colored Glow FIREBIRD
#3 – Star DESTROYER
#4 – I-Blend X-Out EMPEROR
#5 – VIP GATEKEEPER
#6 – Classic GUARD
#7 – K1 GOTE

#15 – Signature ESP BUZZZ
#16 – Jawbreaker ZONE
#17 – Tour Series Galactic AVIAR
#18 – Star WRAITH
#19 – D-Line P2
#20 – Pro AVIAR YETI

It’s a very interesting chart this week, dominated by new releases. The Innova Corvette took the top spot, but followed closely by the signature Sexton Glow Firebird which is still a hot disc. The Destroyer followed up with 3rd place, but close behind was the Infinite Discs Emperor distance driver– probably the first time a brand has introduced a new disc in X-Out (factory 2nd) plastic, but it was too tempting to release the X-Out stamp on the Ides of March (the day Caesar was assassinated), given the new Roman theme of the driver and the dejected-looking emperor in the design.

Other new releases that spiked on the chart were the Gatekeeper mid-range by Westside discs, the Guard putter by Dynamic Discs, and the Gote mid-range by Kastaplast which became available in larger quantities. The Falk by Kastaplast also made it onto the chart as that import brand begins to make more waves in the USA. The Prodigy H2 V2 also continued to sell well in the 750 Spectrum plastic with the cool Kevin Jones stamp. That plastic is simply gorgeous!

Here is a look at how the brands stacked up this week with the number of times they appeared in the Top 20:

WINNER – The #8 spot this week was the Signature C-Line Glow FD “Night Strike II” by Discmania. Alex boldly predicted the glow FD as the #8 spot this week, which is impressive since it wasn’t on the previous chart. Good job!

Top Twenty Tuesday for March 11th, 2019

#1 – Champion Colored Glow FIREBIRD
#2 – Star DESTROYER
#3 – D-Line P2
#4 – Signature ESP BUZZZ
#5 – Star ORC
#6 – ESP BUZZZ
#7 – Star WRAITH

#15 – Star SONIC
#16 – P-Line P2
#17 – Classic Blend Burst WARDEN
#18 – DX AVIAR
#19 – Champion FIRESTORM
#20 – Signature Elite Z FORCE

With our first shipment of the Nate Sexton Champion Colored Glow FIREBIRDS last week, that disc noticeably demolished all of the competition, making even the trusty Star Destroyer look like a very weak spot #2. The other contenders in this week’s chart are familiar from previous charts, including three of the McBeth signature discs from Discraft and a couple version of the Discmania P2, among others.

This week we thought it would be fun to take a look at the chart of what was selling during the same week last year. In 2018, you can see that there were several new releases and special editions stealing the spotlight:

We’ll continue to show the previous year’s best-sellers from time to time, just for a walk down memory lane to see what was hot a year ago compared to what it hot today.

WINNER – The #11 spot this week ended up being a rogue entry with the Jawbreaker ZONE. While it was not previously on the chart, those sales must have been fueled by a big Discraft restock last week. Unfortunately, nobody guessed the Jawbreaker Zone, so we have no winners this week. But be sure to guess again fro next week’s chart!

Top Twenty Tuesday for March 5th, 2019

#2 – Swirly S-Line CD3
#3 – Signature ESP BUZZZ
#4 – ESP FORCE
#5 – Classic Blend Burst WARDEN
#6 – ESP BUZZZ
#7 – D-Line P2

#16 – Metal Flake Glow C-Blend PHARAOH
#17 – Champion FIREBIRD
#18 – DX AVIAR
#19 – Champion THUNDERBIRD
#20 – I-Blend PHARAOH

The first thing you may notice on this week’s top 20 chart is that the Star Destroyer reclaimed its top position. With the sold out Paul McBeth putter, the top spot was surrendered. McBeth still held onto the #3 with his signature ESP Buzzz.  The #2 spot was claimed by a new plastic release for the Discmania CD3 in Swirly S-Line.  The Classic Blend Burst WARDEN surged to the 5th spot this time, gaining a little momentum with a slew of different stamp designs to choose from.

You’ll also notice a strong entry into the charts for Prodigy as they released their D1 Max distance driver last week, along with a slew of pro signature discs. The Kevin Jones H2 V2 and M3 both hit the charts as popular sellers and are being restocked due to demand.  Also, three different plastic blends of the Pharaoh distance driver hit the top 20 this week as it continues to gain popularity as a trusty long-bomber.

Here is a chart showing how many times different brands appeared in the Top 20 this time:

WINNER – There were a lot of people who guessed the #6 spot for this week. In fact, too many. As we’ve declared in the post every week, the first three people to guess right would win the gift card. So, according to the time stamps on the comments, we congratulate Javan, Drew, and Dustin for guessing the ESP Buzzz (not the Signature ESP Buzzz) as the #6 disc on the list.
