The Signature Swirly S-Blend EMPEROR came in at #4 with the release of the Garrett Gurthie “G-Batross” special edition. We likely would have seen the new Dynamic Discs Sergeant on the chart this week, but we misplaced our shipment during the process of moving inventory between our original and expanded warehouse. Sorry about that! Watch for the new Sergeant and other Trilogy releases coming out this week on the Infinite Discs website.

#1 – Champion Colored Glow FIREBIRD

#19 – Swirly S-Blend X-Out EMPEROR
#20 – ESP UNDERTAKER

The Nate Sexton FIREBIRDS easily took the #1 spot last week as we finally got enough inventory so that everybody who wanted one could get one. Those should remain a popular seller throughout the year. The LUNA and ZEUS are still holding strong. Last week the ESP SURGE took the #4 spot as a special release at Infinite Discs. The extremely unique and impressive C-Blend Glow Hye8Dye AZTEC discs sold very quickly, giving them the #5 spot for the week.

Interestingly, the Discraft ZONE took three different spots in three different plastic types. That helped to boost the number of Discraft spots this week to 11, helping the brand to take over half the spots in the top 20. Here is a look at how many times each brand appeared on this week’s chart:

WINNER – The #5 spot this week was taken by C-Blend Glow Hye8Dye AZTEC. That was something of a surprise, since the disc is a pricey and unique one. But Aaron still managed to guess it right and is this week’s winner!

Top 100 Distance Drivers – 2020 Edition

Top 100 Distance Drivers

Comprehensive 2020 Edition

Welcome to another Disc Data blog! Today we’re going to take an in depth look at the Top 100 Distance Drivers. We’ll be using our sales data from the past year to determine which disc golf distance drivers are the most popular. We’ll first take a look at the Top 100 list, then we’ll break it down into smaller, bite-sized pieces.

Note: We can’t show exact sold quantities, but we can show you the sales figures when compared to each other. This still provides a great visual presentation of which discs are the most popular when compared to others.


The Top 100 Distance Drivers

This chart shows the Top 100 Distance Drivers

That is a pretty long list of distance drivers, so let’s break it down by speed. That will allow us to see how similar discs compared to one another in sales.

SPEED 14 DRIVERS

The fastest distance drivers on the market are those which are given a speed-14 rating. That speed rating is based on the width of the rim. The wider the rim, the higher the speed. That basically means that the wider the rim, the faster (more powerful) the player must throw the disc to keep it aloft. Higher speed can equate to more distance, but only if the player has the skill and arm speed to keep it in the air. A speed-14 disc usually has a rim width of 2.5cm, the widest allowed by the PDGA.

The Corvette took the #1 spot for the highest speed discs, mostly because it was the newest distance driver from Innova in the 2019 year. The Ballista Pro came in 2nd as a very good driver from the Latitude 64 line, designed for experienced players.

SPEED 13 DRIVERS

Still on the faster side of the distance driver spectrum, the Speed-13 drivers are very popular. They are slightly more accessible to the general player pool than those with the widest possible rim. But they still require a lot of speed to maximize their distance performance.

The Infinite Discs Pharaoh has been a hot seller for Infinite Discs ever since it was introduced as the fastest distance driver in their disc line (manufactured by Innova). It likely takes the #1 spot because Infinite Discs was the only place to get one during the 2019 season. However, the Pharaoh will become available to other stores as 2020 progresses.  The Shryke and Boss by Innova take the next two spots and then the relatively new Raider by Dynamic Discs took the #4 position.

SPEED 12 DRIVERS

The most popular speed rating in drivers appears to be the Speed-12 class. This rim size is more manageable for many players, including professional players who throw some of the most popular drivers in the market.

The Destroyer by Innova was once again the #1 selling distance driver of 2019 at Infinite Discs. It is thrown by a lot of professional players and amateurs alike. So, it also takes the top spot among speed-12 drivers, though the Zeus by Discraft (in the Paul McBeth line of discs) gave the Destroyer a run for its money when it was introduced in 2019.

SPEED 11 DRIVERS

Discs with a Speed-11 rating have been picking up in popularity among many players. While they may initially pull the trigger on a 12 or 13 because they see experienced players throwing them, those same players often discover that they can actually get more distance with a speed-11. For a lot of players, this is about as fast as they can honestly handle.

The Wraith by Innova is one of those distance drivers that has been increasing in popularity lately, taking off as the new favorite for more of the amateur players. However, you will see some professionals, including some of the best female players in the world, throwing a Wraith.

SPEED 10 DRIVERS

Usually a Speed-9 or Speed-10 driver is considered a good place to start for new players who want to test the distance driver category. It is fast enough, but not overly fast even for newer players. These are the best-sellers with a speed-10 rating at Infinite Discs.

The Beast by Innova took the #1 spot in this speed category. The Orc has something of a cult following, selling particularly well in the collector’s market, due to the incidental swirls and number of “pre-flight number” discs floating around. They are more rare when they are found without the flight numbers included on the stamp. The Avenger SS by Discraft has recently picked up steam as another Paul McBeth signature edition, though it is quite a bit slower and more beginner friendly than most other discs that he is seen throwing in tournaments.

SPEED 9 DRIVERS

The Speed-9 class of discs is actually that fuzzy line between a true “distance driver” and a “fairway driver.” Being slower, they are somewhat easier to control in precision situations and work nicely as entry-level distance drivers for newer players.

There are some speed-9 discs which are on the top-sellers chart because their manufacturer calls them “distance drivers.” However, there are other speed-9 discs that are not on this chart or included in the data because the manufacturer calls them “fairway drivers” or “control drivers.” Hot sellers that don’t appear here because of that designation would be discs like the Innova Firebird, or Innova Valkyrie, or Dynamic Discs Felon, etc.

So, when it comes to speed-9 discs, expect the numbers to be as fuzzy as the designation between being a distance or fairway driver.

QUANTITY SOLD BY SPEED DESIGNATION

Here is one more interesting chart for you. It shows the most popular speed class when the sales are separated into the speed categories. Once again, keep in mind that the Speed-9 class is fuzzy because it excludes the sales of many popular speed-9 discs that are categorized by their manufacturers as control drivers or fairway drivers.

It doesn’t take a trained eye to notice that the Speed-12 category is the most popular. That is the category that includes the top sellers like the Destroyer and the Zeus.

 

We hope that you have enjoyed looking at this data. Feel free to share your opinions and favorite distance drivers in the comments.

Top Twenty Tuesday for March 10TH, 2020

#1 – S-Line Echo DD3
#2 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#3 – Discraft Prototype Putter Blend FIERCE
#4 – Signature ESP ZEUS
#5 – Opto SAPPHIRE
#6 – Star DESTROYER

#16 – P-Line Stiff P2
#17 – Cryztal FLX Sparkle ZONE
#18 – DX AVIAR
#19 – KC Pro KC AVIAR
#20 – Exo Soft LINK

The number one spot was taken in commanding fashion this last week by the S-Line Echo DD3 by Discmania. It sold out during the week. That edition was a special run in what was primarily known as “Echo Star” plastic by Innova, but that has been discontinued in the Innova line for a while now. The LUNA and FIERCE putters from Discraft stayed strong on the chart– we have a hard time keeping enough of those in stock due to their huge popularity.

The new SAPPHIRE easy-throw driver from Latitude 64 made a splash this week in both the Opto and Gold Line plastic releases, taking the #5 and #9 spots. The Nikko Locastro signature edition VIP X Fortress also debuted well with the #13 position, and the Jeremy Koling signature Concrete SLAB also did well at #11.

Here is a look at how many times different brands appeared on the chart, with more variety than we’ve seen the last couple of charts, though Discraft is still grabbing the most spots:

WINNER – The #4 spot this week was taken by the Signature ESP ZEUS. It looks like Matthew guessed that one first as the number four spot, so congratulations!

The Paige Pierce FIERCE continued to hold strong last week, taking the #1 position though it was chased closely by the Paul McBeth LUNA and the initial 2020 release of the Sexton FIREBIRD. Kastaplast was on sale at Infinite Discs last week and that helped to boost a lot of the brand into the Top 20. The K1 LOTS has been strong since its recent release, but we also saw the Reko and Berg putters hit the chart along with the popular understable driver, the FALK.

Only four brands made up the entire chart this week with Discraft holding onto the lead. Here is a look at how many times the different brands entered the chart for the last week:

WINNER – The #12 spot this week was taken by the K1 FALK. We didn’t get a winner this week, though there were some guesses for Kastaplast discs. There was one vote for a Falk, but it was a third guess in the same week, so remember, you can only guess once per week 🙂

It appears to be a Discraft dominant chart once again, though not quite as overpowering as the week before. Here is a look at how many times each brand appeared in the Top 20 this week:

The top spot was taken by the limited edition Cryztal FLX Sparkle ZONE, and three other spots were also taken by the ZONE in other plastic types! Only four other discs by non-Discraft brands hit the chart this last week with the long-standing Star DESTROYER and STAR WRAITH still in the mix from Innova and the D-Line P2 which is also a long-standing part of the Top 20, and then the C-Blend Hye8Dye special edition, custom dyed RUIN discs.

Here is an impressive look at the number of times different brands appeared:
