It is time for the Infinite Discs annual Black Friday Week of Disc Golf Deals!
It has been a challenge this year to put together a sale because of the scarcity of discs from many of the largest manufacturers. Because of that scarcity, there won’t be sweeping discounts across entire brands (it’s hard to discount something that we don’t have or can’t restock). But we’ve managed to pull together some exclusive stamps and special releases and runs to keep the week exciting.
Before jumping into the ad and the links, here are a couple important things to note:
RELEASE “DROP” TIMES
We always get asked what time the special releases will “drop” on the Infinite Discs website. In the past, we’ve announced those drop times, but this year is different. Because we have had so many issues with our website locking up or completely crashing during drop times, we are randomly spreading out those times through the early AM hours. In this way, the featured discs will simply be available when you wake up in the morning on the day of the sale. We know that this may be less predictable, but we believe it is the only way to avoid those extremely frustrating crashes and freezes that are caused by several hundred people trying to load several hundred disc photos all at the same moment.
Thanks for understanding. We honestly feel like everybody will have a more comfortable shopping experience with the un-announced drop times this year.
WHAT IS DISCOUNTED EACH DAY?
We’ve mentioned that there will not be sweeping discounts across entire brands. While there will be some brands that are discounted on their featured days, on some of the days there will be select disc models on sale. In order to easily find what is automatically discounted at any given moment, simply CLICK HERE which takes you to this link:
Feel free to bookmark that link. It will not only be handy during this sale, but anytime in the future that you want to see what is on sale. We almost always have specific discs or accessories on sale, and that’s an easy way to find them.
DO I NEED ANY CODES?
Discount codes will not be utilized during this Black Friday sale. You will not need to worry about finding and pasting codes to take advantage of any sale items. As mentioned above, you’ll be able to see what is on sale and those prices will already be active without needing to worry about codes.
Our crew will be working hard for the next week to try and stay on top of the orders. We will even have graveyard shifts working to get orders out the door. However, we do expect order volume to be high this year and request your patience if your order takes a couple of extra days to process and ship. Also keep in mind that USPS, UPS, FedEx, and all shippers expect this to be the largest online shopping year in history, by a longshot, due to Covid-19 concerns. They will understandably be slower to deliver packages during the holiday season than the norm.
Thanks for your patience.
Now, here’s what we have featured for you this year:
Every year at Infinite Discs we put together a unique, fun list of gift ideas for disc golfers. Let’s take a look at the 2020 holiday ideas that we feel would please any disc golfer. This is your 2020 Disc Golf Gift guide!
Of course, no disc golf will turn down more discs for the holidays. But where do you start if you don’t know which specific discs they need in their bag? You might as well get something that is fun to throw and collectible, or that shares a little holiday spirit. That way, whether they throw it, or keep it as a memento, they’ll be happy. Here are a few holiday discs you might consider:
SPECIAL EDITION DISCS — One of the fun gift ideas for any disc collector or player is a limited edition disc, or a signature edition supporting a professional player. In 2020, signature editions became something of a rarity and sold out quickly whenever they became available. But you might be able to snag a good one if you hurry. Plus there are other limited editions and special editions, including fun tournament stamp discs. Infinite Discs has a great selection of Pro Tour Championship Discs that make great mementos and throwers!
HOLIDAY EDITION DISCS — Several different disc manufactures make holiday edition discs. If your disc golfer prefers more of a spooky edge, we have a lot of discs that were released as Halloween discs. Or, if you want a more traditional “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings” style, we usually have a few of those as well.
DISC DEALS BOXES — Every year, without fail, one of the most popular gift purchases from Infinite Discs the Infinite Deals Box. These are 7-disc package sets with a variety of different disc models from different brands, including stock stamps, tournament stamps, misprints, and more. The downside in 2020 is that the disc supply ran so low with the top manufacturers that there were simply not many discs to use for Deals Boxes. So, our supply of Deals Boxes has been extremely limited. The most popular two packages are the following, and you can check back from time to time and see if you’re lucky enough to snag one:
MISPRINT DISCS and X-OUT DISCS – Sometimes you can find some real treasures at a discounted price by browsing the Misprint and X-Out discs that Infinite Discs keeps in stock. “Misprints” are discs that have stamp flaws, double stamps, or some kind of messed up artwork on them. “X-Outs” are factory seconds that have minor flaws in the plastic that shouldn’t effect the flight of the disc. You can even grab a bunch of these misprints and factory seconds as white elephants for disc golfers.
If you want to impress your disc golfer for the holidays, hit them with a big ticket item that they will love but might not have felt ready to purchase on their own. Here are a few ideas:
ZUCA ALL TERRAIN CART — One of the most popular disc golf carts for the frequent disc golfer is the Zuca cart which is built to carry a maximum quantity of discs, provides a place to sit during long rounds, and carries a variety of accessories. There are also many other features which can be added to the Zuca cart, like padded seat cushions, more drink holders, putter pouches, and more. There are color combinations available for any taste.
MVP ROVER CART — Maybe you don’t want to spend two or three hundred dollars and your disc golfer already has a backpack that he or she likes. You can simply grab them the new MVP ROVER CART to essentially give their backpack a set of wheels so it can be pushed or pulled around the course with ease. There aren’t a lot of bells and whistles with this option, but it gets the job done.
CART ACCESSORIES – If the disc golfer on your list already has a disc golf cart, there are many accessories that can be added. One of the newest and most exciting add-ons for a player who wants to carry more discs around than anybody else is the POWER POCKET POUCH which can be added to the handle of existing carts to carry more putters or disc favorites. It’s super handy, and yes, excessive!
PORTABLE PRACTICE BASKETS — Any disc golfer would be utterly impressed with a new portable disc golf practice basket. There are a wide variety of baskets available on the market by a lot of different manufacturers, all with the intent to provide an easy way for players to practice in their yard, set up small courses, or take with them on camping trips, etc. Here are some of the newest and most popular options:
Black Hole Pro with Transit Bag — The Black Hole Pro is a very popular practice basket by MVP and this year they’ve added a Transit Bag as an easy way to carry the broken-down basket from place to place.
Viking Discs Royal Basket – The Royal Basket by Viking Discs is one of the newest additions to the family of portable baskets. It is a heavy duty basket that is built to last, but not too heavy to move around. It’s a great option for a basket that will catch discs as well as many course baskets.
Dynamic Discs Scout Basket — This is the latest folding, portable basket option and was released in 2020 by Dynamic Discs. It is collapsible and easy to carry around in the bag which is included with your purchase.
DGA Mach Lite— This is our favorite and by far the best-selling collapsible basket. It is easily folded and transported inside a shoulder carry case, yet is very sturdy and well constructed. The color availability tends to change from year to year, so you may find it in green, blue, orange, or other colors that DGA introduces from time to time.
Viking Discs Battle Basket Pro – For a lighter weight basket that is very easy to move around and set up for casual backyard play, the new Battle Basket Pro is extremely affordable. The chains are thinner, allowing for more “splash-out” putts, but it is a fun target at a low cost for casual play and practice. It’s also a great option for young players who are just picking up the basics of the game of disc golf.
HYZER DISC RACK — Maybe you’re looking for a way for your disc addict to store their copious amounts of discs. You can help them keep their extra discs or collection organized with the new Hyzer Disc Rack. Think about it… you’ll be helping your disc golfer stay organized while also keeping your own domain a little less cluttered with discs. It’s a win win!
There are a couple of different designs available, including one with the Hyzer Disc Rack branding and another with Infinite Discs logos and branding. The shelf is very easy to build without tools and is designed especially for discs while also including extra hooks on the front for hanging towels and bag tags. The top shelf holds a bag or trophies for display. While this is an item that might be a little bit outside of the casual disc golf budget, it definitely stands out as an impressive gift for the holiday season.
One of the most exciting things you can give to any hard-core disc golfer or disc collector is a one-year membership in the Infinite Discs VIP Club. That way, the disc golfer you love will receive a unique, collectible disc every month, automatically, as well as discounts on the Infinite Discs website and access to exclusive releases in the VIP Club Store.
Maybe you don’t have a huge budget, but you want to get your favorite disc golfer something nice that is under $100. Here are a few fun ideas that will fit the bill…
INFINITE DISC SLINGER BAG — The Infinite Disc Slinger is designed for affordability, ease, and comfort for quick disc golf rounds. It provides a quality bag option for beginners as well as experienced players who simply want to grab a dozen discs and hit the course. This is the perfect crossover between traditional shoulder bags and backpacks. You can throw it over your shoulder (the strap can be adjusted for whichever shoulder you prefer), carried in your hand, or slung across your body like popular sling bags. It is available in a variety of different colors. See the Disc Slinger Bag HERE
DISC GOLF PUZZLES AND BOARD GAMES — Maybe you’re stuck inside for the winter months. Or maybe you just like disc golf enough to watch to play it on the table top. There are actually some fun board games now which are built around the disc golf experience. Plus there are 500 and 1000 piece puzzles that are a real challenge to put together, featuring every disc golfer’s obsessions…piles of colorful discs! Check out Disc Golf Board Games and Puzzles HERE
THE KWIK-STIK RETRIEVER — Disc Retrievers have always been a good gift idea because pretty much every serious disc golf plays near water or trees and needs a way to get back the discs that have flown astray. The Kwik-Stik is one of the most popular options on the market with a telescopic pole that can extend to an impressive reach and a couple of different ways to trap and pull in the hard-to-reach disc. Some players are hesitant to spring the cash for a retriever even though it will save money time and time again when counting the number of discs saved. That’s where you come in– give one as a gift and that player will find endless occasions to use it!
INFINITE DISCS HUCK PACK — A great choice as an entry-level backpack for new players, or for experienced players who want an affordable option to carry more discs, the Huck Pack just came out in 2020. It features great disc storage capacity and two water bottle holders to keep you hydrated. Though it is affordable, it still manages to be a rather comfortable choice. But if the Huck Pack isn’t for you, there are other very good, affordable backpack options as well, like the Dynamic Discs Trooper, the Prodigy BP-3, The MVP Shuttle Bag, Latitude 64 Core bag, and more!
ProPull DISC GOLF TRAINER — The ProPull resistance band training kit has become a popular item for serious disc golfers who want to improve their throwing speed and strength. It can be used anywhere that the bands can be secured to a pole or tree. Check out the demo video HERE and see if this is the perfect gift for your disc golfer.
THE POWER POCKET POUCH — If you need a great gift idea for somebody who uses a disc golf cart, then the Power Pocket Pouch should do the trick. This handy cart accessory attaches to the cart handle and carries and additional 4-8 “go-to” discs as well as other items, like a cellphone, scorecard, mini marker, and more. See the Power Pocket Pouch HERE
These small items would be fun for little gifts to any disc golfer. They don’t take a lot of space, they aren’t expensive, and they can add a little fun to your Christmas morning…
Flight Towel — The Flight Towel is one of the latest trends in disc golf. These towels come with a fob attached, and each fob is made out of the rim of a popular disc. That way, the towel isn’t only good for drying discs, but it can be used as a warm-up tool where the player whips the towel through the air in a throwing motion. That helps warm-up the throwing arm with the player gripping the disc that rim that they love. It’s an interesting and fun accessory that should make any player pleased.
Other Disc Golf Towels — Towels are frequently needed by disc golfers to keep their discs dry, and we’ve got a variety of different towels, from lightweight to thick and absorbent. They can easily be stuffed into any stocking. Plus, there are towels that are branded for just about any manufacturer, so no matter which brand the player likes, there should be a towel just for them.
Pyrohyzer Glass Mini Discs — Another fun product that Infinite Discs started carrying this year is the unique glass mini discs by Pyrohyzer. Each mini is handmade and entirely unique. The prices vary depending on the amount of extra features, like “shatter” patterns, swirls, glow-in-the-dark, and etching. Though these glass minis are nice enough to display, they can be used as mini markers during disc golf rounds. They’re definitely a top-notch gift idea that fits into the stocking. Also available in MICRO MINI sizes.
Many Disc Golfers like to play in the dark, and to do that, they often prefer to throw glow-in-the-dark discs. The easiest and fastest way to charge up a glow disc is with a UV Flashlight. We have a simple, affordable UV flashlight in stock that is just the right size to carry in a pocket or in a bag. Plus, we have other tools for night disc golf, like LED lights that can be taped to the bottom of discs, or glow-in-the-dark tape rings to stick on non-glowing discs.
Infinite Discs Chalk Ball – The Infinite Discs Chalk Ball is one of the newest grip enhancers on the market in 2020. Other grip bags have filling like beads, sawdust, or dirt, etc. However, this one features the equivalent of climbers chalk which enhances the player’s hold on the disc in all kinds of weather. Plus it can easily be clipped onto any backpack or cart with the carabiner that is included.
Friction Gloves — While these might appear to be somewhat expensive gloves at first glance, they are actually worth every dollar for disc golfers who want to play when it is cold outside. They take the bite out of the cold air, but more importantly, they provide extra grip on the disc, even when the plastic is wet. That way, disc golfers can play in the gold without taking gloves off to throw and putting them back on again to warm up. If you don’t want to buy a pair of the Friction Gloves, they are also sold separately for single hands, so that the throwing hand can have the enhanced grip.
We also have the newest line of WARM FRICTION GLOVES which are thicker to keep hands and fingers warm in even lower temperatures which still providing the grip to play the game.
Disc Dots for Putting Practice – The DiscDot is a new product that is focused on helping players to focus. These little plastic balls attach to the chains of a basket– the player picks the chain. Then when practicing putting, the player can focus on the little colored balls to hit exactly where they’d like. The 2-packs come with bright, neon colors that are easy to see when focusing on the chains.
Kneepad Stress Minis – Another easy, useful stocking stuff is a Kneepad Mini marker made out of stress foam. These multipurpose minis come in handy in several ways. First of all, they can mark your lie just like other minis, but they also provide a soft pad for when the player needs to take a knee to throw from under a low-hanging branch. In addition, since they’re made out of stress foam, they can be squeezed to release tension before or after putting. Plus, they are fun to throw and won’t cause damage when they hit something (or someone) because they’re light and soft. Put them on the ground, kneel on them, throw them, or squeeze them– these are fun little mini discs!

If you’ve got a fast arm, you’ll be able to throw this disc and watch it as it flies on that beloved s-curve line. The Photon can be used for some solid flex shots as well. This weekend is an excellent time to pick up a Photon to try or to stock up, simply use the code FOCUSPHOTON to get 10% off all Photons.

We hope that you love throwing the Photon. If you’ve thrown the disc, feel free to share what you think of this new midrange. Thanks!
STAY TUNED for our next Focus Friday for another chance to try a featured disc at a nice discounted price!
‘Tis the season for all of the crazy sales, including Infinite Disc’s big, week-long Black Friday sale! However, as we all know too well, 2020 has been a strange year. While the interest in disc golf has exploded, the supply of discs has become increasingly thin. That shortage in supply will change the way this year’s Black Friday Sale will look, but you better believe we’re still going to have it!
MULTIPLE DAYS FOR MULTIPLE BRANDS?
Yes– as usual, the Infinite Discs Black Friday sales will last for several days, and each day will have a particular brand focus. A couple of days will focus on a handful of brands. With that say, there may be a couple of popular brands that will not have their own “day” during the sale. The reason for that is simple– if we don’t have discs available from that brand, it is kind of pointless to feature them. There are brands that are so behind with their manufacturing efforts or struggling with their supply chain that they don’t have discs. We can’t feature something that we don’t have.
So, if you don’t see a day when we feature your favorite brand, it is most likely because we did not have enough inventory on hand to justify any kind of feature. Or we were not able to get a special featured disc or stamp from the brand.
WILL THERE BE SPECIAL RELEASES?
For the reasons mentioned above, our ability to get special releases for our annual Black Friday event has been a struggle. But most brands have done their best to get together some fun stuff for us. Rather than seeing a lot of special runs in unique plastics, the focus will be primarily on fun stamps. We’ve licensed and commissioned more stamp designs for our 2020 sale than any other sale we’ve had before! A few are designs you may have seen before, but on disc models that haven’t featured those particular designs. But plenty of the designs are new, with a mix of both intense and humorous. We’re having a lot of fun this year with the stamps!
Hopefully, among all of the stamp designs that Infinite Discs will feature that week, you’ll find something that suits your taste perfectly.
And yet, there will be a couple of special runs in plastics that are not the usual stock.
HOW ABOUT BIG DISCOUNTS?
In the past, we’ve always discounted all the discs by the featured brands on each day. However, because inventory is so scarce, we’ll have to be more selective on the discs that are discounted. We won’t be able to do sweeping discounts on any inventory that we know we may not be able to restock. For example, if we can’t keep BUZZZ discs in stock (which has been the issue for a few weeks), then we certainly won’t be able to offer discounts. Chances are, any Buzzz we manage to get could be hard to keep in stock whether it is discounted or not. Plus, it’s always frustrating when a customer wants to get a disc or product that is advertised as “on sale” but there are only a handful available. We’d rather discount something that will benefit MORE of our customers.
In short, there WILL be discounts, but they will be on specific disc models or products that we have an ample enough supply that a lot of people will be able to benefit from the discount.
WILL IT BE WORTH IT?
Yes! We’ve worked hard to make sure that the Infinite Discs Black Friday sale will be an adventure. Every day you’ll see something unique and fun, with a variety of cool stamp designs. You may have fun exploring brands and disc models that you haven’t tried before, and that’s always fun!
THE FULL AD WILL BE COMING A FEW DAYS BEFORE THANKSGIVING!
Prodigy will release some new bags and a new distance driver tomorrow, November 12. There is the D4 Max, the BP-2 V3, the BP-3 V3, and the Putter Pocket. With this release there are new colors for the practice bag and the BP-1 V3 as well. These will all be available on our website.
The D4 Max is a modified edition of the D4. It is an understable driver designed to get maximum distance. Especially appealing to those with lower arm speeds with its natural tendency to turn at high speeds and provide a good S curve flight. Those with more power will find it a great option for long turnovers and rollers.
BP-2 V3 $65.99
The Prodigy Disc’s BP-2 V3 comes in new color to go along with its excellent features. The tear and water resistant Nylon Ripstop Fabric keeps the bag lightweight and long lasting, while the improved zippers are equipped with better pulls and are waterproofed and taped for added resistance to the elements.
The BP-2 V3 has an excellent amount of space for a mid-sized bag, holding approximately 28 discs while offering large side pockets. You’ll also find improved insulated bottle holders to better keep the temperature of your drink. Prodigy has also increased padding on the back and shoulder straps for more comfort. With the umbrella holder, this bag tops it off to ensure you can carry everything you need for all conditions with ease.
BP-3 V3 $37.99
The Prodigy Disc’s BP-3 V3 comes in a Nylon Ripstop Fabric, making it scratch, tear, and water resistant, while the taped zipper seams and waterproof bottom panel remain for extra protection. The material is now more durable and still lightweight.
Prodigy has added a front putter pocket to allow easier access to your main putters and free up the top pocket for additional discs or other necessities. There is also a carabiner clip to clip a towel on. The BP-3 V3 holds up to 17 discs in its main compartment and additional discs can go in the deep top pocket. This also has an adjustable 32 oz bottle holder, and two side zipper pockets for valuables along with improved zipper pulls. This is a versatile bag for beginners or more avid, professional players looking for a smaller, more compact option at a great price.
Putter Pocket $39.49
The Prodigy Disc’s Putter Pocket for carts is a great accessory for any disc golfer that prefers to use a cart. It gives players easy access to their putters, while also providing storage for pencils, scorecards, and other small valuables used during a round. It is easy to attach with a Velcro strap and works well with any disc golf cart. It also has a shoulder strap and can be carried as an additional accessory for storage or for putter-only rounds.
With the global pandemic shutting down much of organized Ultimate in 2020, many Ultimate Frisbee players have picked up disc golf as a new hobby.
While these are both flying disc sports, the flight of Ultimate discs is substantially different than that of most disc golf discs. Ultimate Frisbee players are able to adapt to and excel at disc golf faster than many without frisbee backgrounds, but learning to throw disc golf discs can be a frustrating experience.
In this article we are going to discuss the best golf discs for ultimate frisbee players. We’re going to go over some of the different golf discs that fly and feel more like Ultimate Frisbees, and provide tips for helping Ultimate players transition to disc golf.
We’ve asked hundreds of Ultimate players for their feedback and have assembled our own local panel of players to help us determine the absolute best frisbee golf discs for the Ultimate player.
Best Discs Overall
The overwhelming feedback from Ultimate to Disc Golf converts is to start out with putters and midrange discs. From our online voting, these are the top 15 golf discs recommended for the Ultimate Frisbee player. Note that not a single driver made the top 15.
Infinite Discs Anubis
Discraft Buzzz SS
Dynamic Discs Truth
It’s also interesting to note that almost all of the most highly recommended discs are made by the top two brands Innova and Discraft. It’s no surprise that a high number of Ultimate players choose Discraft as this brand is by far the #1 choice for Ultimate Frisbees.
Best Putters for Ultimate Players
According to our online feedback, the following are the best putters for Ultimate Players. In general, the more understable flying putters — like the Innova Sonic, and the deep dish putters were recommended.
Best Midrange Discs For Ultimate Players
When it comes to Midranges, neutral flying wide diameter mids were the most highly recommended.
Infinite Discs Anubis
Discraft Buzzz SS
Latitude 64 Fuse
Dynamic Discs Truth
DD Emac Truth
Best Drivers for Ultimate Frisbee Players
While drivers are the most difficult for Ultimate Players to get used to, once they do they absolutely love getting the incredible distance that only a bevel edge golf disc can provide. While many like to recommend the low speed drivers that are best for normal beginners, many Ultimate players can handle understable high speed drivers after just a few throws. Listed below are the most recommended drivers for the Ultimate convert.
Infinite Discs Maya
Discraft Avenger SS
Latitude 64 Diamond
Latitude 64 River
Infinite Discs Sphinx
What are the best golf discs for Ultimate players?
To help us out, we’re looking for feedback from people who now play disc golf who began with an Ultimate background. In the comments below, please let us know what disc golf drivers, midrange discs, and putters were best for you as you learn disc golf.
We’re gathering some more data and once we have it will provide a lot more data to help you determine the best disc for the ultimate player. Once we have that data, this post will be updated.
