TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – FEBRUARY 23RD 2021

Welcome to the Top 20 Tuesday chart! Every week we take a look at the twenty top-selling discs on the Infinite Discs website, broken down by plastic type as well. So these are the top sellers for the last seven days in order:

Top Twenty Tuesday for February 23rd 2021

#1 – Signature TSA Glow MANTRA
#2 – Ethereal MANTRA
#3 – Ethos MANTRA
#4 – TSA Glow MANTRA
#5 – Aura MANTRA
#6 – Elevation Rubber INTERCEPTOR
#7 – Prime Burst JUDGE
#8 – Z Line BUZZZ
#9 – Star DESTROYER
#10 – ESP ZONE
#11 – Cheengz Premium I-ONE
#12 – Signature Swirly S-Blend CENTURION
#13 – Extinct DIPLODOCUS
#14 – Moss ANKYLOSAURUS
#15 – BaseGrip P MODEL S
#16 – Champion Colored Glow TEEBIRD
#17 – Star SIDEWINDER
#18 – Star LEOPARD3
#19 – ESP NUKE
#20 – Star WRAITH

The strange charts continue this week with all of the top 5 spots taken by a single disc– the MANTRA by Thought Space Athletics. People went crazy over the restock of the Mantra, shooting it to the top of the chart in nearly every plastic type available. The #6 spot was taken by the new INTERCEPTOR by Elevation Disc Golf who is bringing floppy rubber back to the game of disc golf. That was an introductory release by a brand new brand, and it sold out in a few hours. Another complete newcomer, Cheengz Disc Golf introduced the I-ONE mid-range which also hit the chart in the #11 spot. This is definitely looking like a year where small brands can grab a lot of attention.

Here is a look at how many times the different brands hit the chart this week:

WINNER – The number 10 spot was the ESP ZONE. While the Zone usually gets a lot of guesses, it didn’t get any this last week. That’s another week without a winning guess. Give it another try for next week!

NEXT WEEK: Guess the #11 spot for next week. The first person to get it right (include the disc model and plastic type) will win!

#17 – Feather ALLOSAURUS
#18 – Z Line HEAT
#19 – ESP RAPTOR
#20 – S-Line DD3

This week we have a chart that reflects the last two weeks of sales because of a vacation (sorry about that). Discraft dominated the sales chart with six of the top nine spots, with three of those been Zones in different plastics. The Royal and Royal Soft BOBCAT from Mint Discs took the #4 and #5 spots with a limited edition stamp release at Infinite Discs. The JOKERI made it onto the chart with a cool 10th Anniversary release in their original, grippy Basic plastic blend. With Innova, a couple of X-Outs made the chart since stock discs have been lacking, but we are restocking a lot of Innova right now and expect to see them on the chart in multiple spots.

Here is a look at how many times the different brands hit the 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 person to predict that chart position correctly in the comments will win a $10 gift card for the Infinite Discs website.

WINNER – The number 9 spot was the ESP NUKE by Discraft. Nobody picked the Nuke, so we don’t have a winner this time. But please keep the guesses coming!

NEXT WEEK: Guess the #10 spot for next week. The first person to get it right (include the disc model and plastic type) will win!

Top Twenty Tuesday for February 2nd 2021

#2 – Rubber Blend ZONE
#3 – Star WRAITH

#18 – Swirly S-Blend PHARAOH
#19 – P-Blend ALPACA
#20 – Extinct SPINOSAURUS

The Top 20 chart is still highly driven by restocks. Whatever is restocked during the week tends to jump to the top positions. But the #1 this week is the Kona Panis Signature I-Blend EMPEROR, which barely inched out the #2 best-seller, the Rubber Blend ZONE. The Star WRAITH came in #3, getting another boost with a quiet release of all black “Solar” stamped discs. Several other Discraft models filled the chart, with only a few rogues holding spots in the top 20, like the Ground RUNE by Viking Discs (a cool putter), the P Model S by Prodigy / Ace Line (another cool putter), and the Extinct SPINOSAURUS fairway drier from Dino Discs (ultra lightweight discs).

Here is a look at how many times the different brands appeared on this week’s chart:

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – JANUARY 26TH 2021

Welcome to the Top 20 Tuesday chart! Every week we take a look at the twenty top-selling discs on the Infinite Discs website, broken down by plastic type as well. So these are the top sellers for the last seven days in order:

Top Twenty Tuesday for January 26th 2021

#1 – Star DESTROYER
#2 – Extinct BRONTOSAURUS
#3 – DX AVIAR
#4 – D-Blend ALPACA
#5 – Extinct SPINOSAURUS
#6 – Metal Flake Glow C-Blend CENTURION
#7 – Signature ESP ANAX
#8 – ESP STALKER
#9 – Egg Shell TYRANOSAURUS REX
#10 – Signature ESP HADES
#11 – DX ROC
#12 – Star WRAITH
#13 – Base Grip P MODEL S
#14 – Jawbreaker BANGER GT
#15 – Gummy C-Blend EMPEROR
#16 – Star FIREBIRD
#17 – R-Pro PIG
#18 – Swirly Star X-Out EAGLE
#19 – GStar MAMBA
#20 – Prime Burst JUDGE

The weekly Top 20 chart appears to be normalizing a little bit as some of the popular discs from bigger brands have started to restock. The Star DESTROYER jumped back to the top of the chart with a restock, and the DX AVIAR putter jumped up to #3. Some Discraft has started to climb back onto the chart with restocks including the ANAX, the HADES, the STALKER, and the BANGER GT.  It is pretty certain that more Innova and Discraft will hit the chart as resupply begins to come back into the marketplace.

Surprisingly enough, three different DINO DISCS models made it onto the chart– the only three models in stock right now. The BRONTOSAURUS entered the chart in the #2 spot with its debut, with the new SPINOSAURUS taking the #5 position and the high-speed TYRANOSAURUS REX still hanging in there (almost gone again). These lightweight discs seem to be making a splash as great options for kids.

Here is a look at how many times the different brands showed up 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 person to predict that chart position correctly in the comments will win a $10 gift card for the Infinite Discs website.

WINNER – The number 7 spot this week was taken by the Signature EPS ANAX which was restocked this week. It looks like nobody guess the ANAX for this week. But try again by leaving a guess for next week.

NEXT WEEK: Guess the #8 spot for next week. The first person to get it right (include the disc model and plastic type) will win!

Best Disc Golf Discs for 2021 – Top 100

Best Disc Golf Discs for 2021

Today we’re going to take a look at the Best Disc Golf Discs for 2021. To learn which discs are the most popular, we are going to take a look at the Top 100 Sellers from 2020. All data is taken from InfiniteDiscs.com sales figures. (We cannot show exact figures, but we can easily see which discs sell most compared to others.)

Last year, 2020, brought crazy growth to our sport of disc golf. With many disc manufacturers being temporarily shut down, plus the massive influx of disc golfers, popular discs became harder and harder to come by throughout the year. Some discs, like the Zeus, quickly became “out of stock”, thus dropping it’s rank on the Top 100. When we did get the Zeus in, it would sell very fast, causing it to go higher on the chart.

We believe the top 100 selling discs of 2020 will still be an excellent indicator of the most popular discs of 2021. These sales represent the data from old and new disc golfers, making them a great summary of the best disc golf discs.

First we’ll jump into the top 100 chart, then we’ll look at some broken down stats. Lastly, we’ll get to our recommendations for the Best Disc Golf Discs of 2021!

Top 100 Disc Golf Discs at InfiniteDiscs.com


The Top 5 Selling Golf Discs for 2020

  1. Innova Destroyer
  2. Discraft Buzzz
  3. Discraft Luna
  4. Innova Wraith
  5. Discraft Zone

The Destroyer, Buzzz, and Luna took spots 1-3 respectively, making them the perfect Driver, Mid, and Putter combo… assuming you can handle a Destroyer. The Wraith and Zone were a close 4th and 5th place, showing that Innova and Discraft dominated the top five. The P2 dropped from it’s top 5 spot in 2019, and this was primarily due to it being unavailable for most of the year.


Ups and Downs

Next to each disc is an arrow pointing up, down, or right. These arrows and numbers represent how much each disc climbing or dropped in the ranks from 2019. Many of the top discs shuffled slightly, but not enough to make a big difference in the rankings. The #44 Aztec, #45 Raptor, and #45 Rhyno made the biggest jumps into the top 50. The biggest overall jump was the #87 Cohort, jumping 174 spots to make the Top 100 chart. The #91 Relay also made a big jump of 99 spots.

The Hades and the Fierce debuted in 2020 and claimed the highest spots on the chart for new discs, at #20 and #21 respectively.


Types of Discs Sold

What types of disc golf discs are most popular?

 

Top selling disc type graph in 2020

Putters were the top selling type of disc in 2020. We saw a big influx in putter sales. Putters made up 34% of all discs sold in 2020. Part of this may be do to the fact that many courses were closed for a time and disc golfers had more time to practice putting.

Control drivers came in second, at 28%. Distance drivers were at a close third at 26%, and mid ranges were by far the worst selling disc type at just 12%. Midrange discs are not the most glamourous golf discs. They do not wear out nor get lost as quickly as do drivers.


Top Disc Golf Brands

In terms of the best disc golf brands, here we list the number of times any brand had a disc golf mold that made our top 100 list.

Graph of Best Disc Golf Brands during 2020

Innova appeared on the Top 100 chart 33 times, while Discraft appeared 23 times. Infinite Discs molds came in third with 9 molds on the chart. Many other brands made the chart, showing that there are excellent discs from every manufacturer. Because most of the disc golf manufacturers were unable to produce discs at a rate fast enough to keep up with demand, there was often lack of availability of many of the most popular molds. These graphs would likely be very different if we were able to keep in stock all disc models throughout the year.


Best Disc Golf Discs for 2021:

Now let’s jump into our recommendations based on the best sellers! We’ve divided our suggestions here into best putters, midranges, and drivers. As skill level does effect ones ability to have success with different types of discs, we’ve also suggested different discs from our top 100 for different skill types.

Best Disc Golf PUTTERS for 2021

There are many great putters to choose from and they work for most, if not all skill levels. There’s a reason many of these putters have been top sellers for a long time. They work well, and people love them.

Best MIDRANGES for 2021

We’ll break down these midrange recommendations based off of sales, and skill level.

Best Mids For Beginners:

If you’re new too disc golf a straight to understable midrange just might be the most valuable golf disc to you. Consider trying one of these great, easy to throw, mids.

Try Something Hot and New: Divergent Discs LEVIATHAN

Recommended Mids for Intermediate / Advanced Players:

Once you have better throwing technique and a little more throwing power a stable/overstable midrange becomes the consistent choice for accuracy. Try these from our list of best midrange discs for 2021.

Try Something Hot and New: Thought Space Athletics PATHFINDER


Best Disc Golf DRIVERS for 2021

We’ll break down these driver recommendations based off of sales, and skill level.

Best Drivers For Beginners:

Understable moderate speed fairway drivers are typically the best disc golf drivers for new players. Be sure to check out these recommendations for the best drivers for beginners.

Top Drivers For Intermediate Players:

For many intermediate disc golfers, the most important aspect of improving the disc golf game is getting more distance. Our suggested list of best drivers for intermediate players here provides some excellent choices for improving your accuracy and maximum distance.

Top Drivers For Advanced and Tournament Players:

Skilled disc golfers need consistent discs that will provide them with both accuracy and distance. The suggested top drivers below are consistent choices among some of the top players in the world.

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – JANUARY 19TH 2021

Welcome to the Top 20 Tuesday chart! Every week we take a look at the twenty top-selling discs on the Infinite Discs website, broken down by plastic type as well. So these are the top sellers for the last seven days in order:

Top Twenty Tuesday for January 19th 2021

#1 – Metal Flake Glow C-Blend CENTURION
#2 – Signature Swirly S-Blend EMPEROR

#17 – Star X-Out ROADRUNNER
#18 – Star X-Out WRAITH
#19 – Star X-Out MAKO3
#20 – Champion FIREBIRD

The chart for this week is similar to last week in the sense that it is still driven by what we have in stock. Since popular molds from the biggest brands are hard to get these days (or any molds from certain brands), a lot of the chart is showing a surge in Infinite Discs brand, including the top 3 discs. Number one was the Metal Flake Glow C-Blend CENTURION which was released last week. The number two spot was the Garrett Gurthie Signature Swirly S-Blend EMPEROR. And the number three spot was the D-Blend ALPACA putter. Six other Infinite Discs models hit the top 20. The brand with the second largest presence is Innova, primarily with X-Outs, since that’s what we’ve been able to get in stock. We are adding an Innova restock starting today, so the charge may change a bit going into next week.

Here is a look at how many times the different brands hit 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 – The number 6 spot this week was taken by the Star X-Out DESTROYER. Derek guessed it right this week. Great job!

#3 – S-Blend Centurion
#4 – Swirly S-Blend X-Out EMPEROR

#17 – Star X-Out WRAITH
#18 – X-Blend ALPACA
#19 – Star WRAITH
#20 – Swirly S-Blend PHARAOH

This week’s chart is only the 2nd of 2021, and once again it is a bizarre one due to the lack of inventory coming from the major brands. Infinite Discs models dominated the charts, since it is what we have in stock, while Discraft dropped down to one model on the chart, and Innova dropped to four. A couple of the Prodigy Ace Line putters made the top 20 this week. The Tyrannosaurus Rex took the number 5 spot, as almost any of the ultra lightweight Dino Disc models that comes in stock sells rapidly.

Here is a look at how many times the 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 person to predict that chart position correctly in the comments will win a $10 gift card for the Infinite Discs website.

WINNER – The number 5 spot this week was taken by the Tyrannosaurus Rex, which was a pretty random and unexpected restock, so nobody predicted that disc for the week. Try again for next week’s chart!

NEXT WEEK: Guess the #6 spot for next week. The first person to get it right (include the disc model and plastic type) will win!

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – JANUARY 5th 2021

Welcome to the first Top 20 Tuesday chart of 2021, looking back and charting the sales for the last two weeks this time, as we took a break between Christmas and New Year. It should be a very interesting chart, since our inventory levels have dropped to the lowest point in several years due to a lack of inventory at the manufacturers. Many of the most popular discs simply aren’t available until those manufacturers get caught up again. We look forward to that!

Top Twenty Tuesday for January 5th 2021

#1 – D-Blend ALPACA
#2 – Champion MAKO3
#3 – I-Blend SPHINX
#4 – Discraft Prototype Putter Blend FIERCE
#5 – Prime Burst JUDGE
#6 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#7 – Signature Swirly S-Blend SPHINX
#8 – Star MAKO3
#9 – Star WRAITH
#10 – Star VALKYRIE
#11 – Base Grip P MODEL S
#12 – Pro X-Out WRAITH
#13 – C-Line FD
#14 – Neutron CRAVE
#15 – Cosmic Neutron TRACE
#16 – Super Stupid Soft WIZARD
#17 – VIP UNDERWORLD
#18 – Opto DIAMOND
#19 – Big Z UNDERTAKER
#20 – Swirly S-Blend PHARAOH

You’ll notice more of a brand variety on this chart than we’ve seen in a while. As the most popular discs from the dominant brands have run out, folks are snapping up the smaller brands, which make some great discs as well. The D-Blend ALPACA putter by Infinite Discs hit the #1 spot. The MAKO3 took two spots on the chart as a popular midrange. Other putters like the JUDGE, FIERCE, LUNA, WIZARD and P MODEL S are selling well while supplies last (and I can tell you that the supplies are not going to last). Hopefully more inventory starts to show up soon!
