Top 5 Inexpensive Portable Disc Golf Baskets of 2019

In this blog I will discuss the top 5 most popular, inexpensive portable disc golf baskets for 2019. I hear a lot of people talk about the expense of getting a basket as though they are about to make a major purchase. While it is certainly possible to spend many hundreds of dollars on a new basket, it is also possible to get a quality practice basket relatively inexpensively. One of the best ways to improve in this sport is to practice putting regularly, and the best way to do that is to have a basket (or two) on hand for daily practice. So, lets jump in and look at the top five most popular baskets for 2019.

 

Top 5 Best Portable Disc Golf Baskets for 2019

Thinking about improving your game? Check out these top-selling portable baskets:

 

  1. DGA Mach Lite
  2. MVP Black Hole Pro
  3. MVP Black Hole Practice
  4. Axiom Pro
  5. Dynamic Discs Recruit

 

DGA Mach Lite

DGA Mach Lite Portable Disc Golf Basket

 

 

The best-selling basket for 2019, and one of my personal favorites, is the DGA Mach Lite. This is a well-designed, inexpensive practice basket that is easy to set up and take down. It’s tough to beat the Mach Lite for portability and cost. No tools are necessary for set up. And the chains are  grabby for a portable. It also comes with a bag to carry the folded basket. I’ve had mine for about 5 years and it is still in good shape. The Mach Lite is a great basket if you will be transporting it from time to time. It sells for $135.99. (Keep an eye out for the Black Friday sale!)

 

MVP Black Hole Pro

 

MVP Black Hole Pro Portable Disc Golf Basket

 

The next most popular portable disc golf basket is the MVP Black Hole Pro. The Black Hole Pro is a basket that is easy to set up and take down without tools. It has two rows of 12 chains to catch and hold your disc. The Black Hole Pro is a great example of getting a well-made basket at a reasonable price. The Pro is nearly the same quality level as a course basket. It is great if you want a good, grabby basket to practice with, and also want a great basket to use for temp holes during leagues or tournaments. The Black Hole Pro sells for $139.95

 

 

 

Black Hole Practice

 

MVP Black Hole Practice Portable Basket

 

The third best selling basket is the little brother to the Black Hole Pro, and that is the Black Hole Practice basket. This basket is has lighter chains and no upper band compared to the Black Hole Pro. The Practice is lighter and easier to move around, and for a practice basket it is still grabs discs quite well. The Black Hole Practice is good for using at home, and occasionally using it as a temp basket. The Practice sells for $119.95.

 

 

 

Axiom Pro

 

Axiom Pro Portable Disc Golf Basket

 

 

The Axiom Pro basket is a great choice, offering quality and portability at a good price. It is powder coated and comes in bright colors. The Axiom Pro easily sets up and breaks down without tools. The heavy duty chains provide good disc-grabbing power. The Axiom has 24 chains, and retails for $139.95. It is another basket to consider if you want to practice at home, but still use as a quality temp basket for leagues or tournaments.

 

 

 

Dynamic Discs Recruit

 

Dynamic Discs Recruit Portable Disc Golf Basket

Rounding out the top five portable baskets is the Dynamic Discs Recruit. This beefy basket is slightly larger than most practice baskets. Its two rows of chains will stop a speeding disc in a hurry. To aid in moving the basket around, the base has a wheel attached. While the Recruit is priced higher than the rest of the top five, it is also the sturdiest and heaviest. It does need tools to take it apart to move, and it is heavier to lift once disassembled. However, it does come apart relatively easy. The quality of the Recruit is exceptional. To be that well-built and sturdy at that price point is impressive. I’ve spent many hours putting on a Recruit, and I love the basket. It sells for $199.99. It’s a great basket if you want a top-of-the-line quality at a reasonable price and you won’t be breaking it down frequently. If you are looking for something that you can transport frequently, I would consider something a little smaller/lighter.

 

It certainly is a good time to be in the market for a portable basket. The quality of the available baskets at the low price points means you can get a basket to improve your game without spending a ton of money. Check out our selection of baskets today and get on your way to lowering your scores.

Disc Golf Mystery Box and Package Set Deals

Over the last few years, we have seen an increasing interest in disc golf mystery box deals and package sets which offer a bulk lot of discs at a low cost. Many of those mystery box deals on the market offer a selection of discs by a single brand. However, here at Infinite Discs, we wanted to built a selection of bulk lots and mystery “Deals Box” deals that featured a wider variety of discs by multiple brands. That way we could target the more adventurous players. If you love to explore and throw a mixed bag, these deals boxes are for you.

DISC GOLF MYSTERY BOX DEALS

Whether you only want to explore a handful of discs, or you want a whole pile, Infinite Discs has several choices to fit your mood and budget. These deals boxes can contain a mix of discs with stock stamps, misprints, and tournament stamps. All discs will be new, but may not all be stock stamp editions. Here is a look at the package deals currently available at Infinite Discs:

INFINITE DEALS BOX JRDeals Box Junior 5-Disc Package Set

This is a small mystery box deal that features only a handful of discs to check out. It can features discs from multiple brands. However, with only 5 discs, the variety won’t be as large. This box will contain the following:

  • One putter
  • One mid-range
  • Three drivers including overstable and understable models

Of the five discs in this Junior box, two of the discs may be in budget, base plastic, and the other three discs will be in a premium or durable plastic blend. Though the package set is called “Junior” because of its size, it should not be assumed to be easy-throw discs for young players. The discs will generally be fine for players of any experience level to use.

Infinite Deals 7-disc Mystery BoxINFINITE DEALS BOX

This is by far the most popular mystery box on the Infinite Discs website. This is a 7-disc collection that will instantly build your bag with a variety of discs from different brands. This box will contain the following:

  • One Putter
  • One or Two Mid-Range Discs
  • At least one understable driver
  • At least one overstable driver
  • Discs from at least 3 different manufacturers

Of the seven discs in this Deals Box, none will be in base plastic. The putter or one of the other discs may be in mid-grade plastic, as preferred in most putters, and the rest will be in premium or more durable, long-lasting plastic blends. The weights of the discs may vary. Again, this is a great variety of discs in a single package with a variety of uses on the disc golf course.

Mystery 12-Disc Deals Box INFINITE DEALS BOX XL

If you are even more adventurous, or you have a bigger budget, then consider the 12-disc XL deals box. This is another mystery box that is popular as a gift idea since it provides maximum anticipation and surprise for any disc golfer who loves trying new discs. Once again, it will contain a mix of different disc brands. This XL box will contain the following:

  • Two putters
  • At least three mid-range discs
  • Seven drivers ranging from understable to overstable
  • Discs from at least 3 different manufacturers

Just like with the regular Infinite Deals Box, this larger version will not contain discs in base plastic, but will contain putters (or sometimes a mid-range) in a mid-grade plastic. Putters and approach discs are often popular with more grip. The rest of the discs will be in durable, long-lasting premium plastic blends.

Extreme 15-Disc Mystery Deals BoxDEALS BOX EXTREME

This is the largest disc golf mystery box offered by Infinite Discs. It has 15 discs from a wide variety of brands but also includes a large disc golf bag to carry them around the course. If you really want to surprise a disc golfer with a fantastic gift, then this is great way to do it– especially if the player is new and wants to try a lot of discs while needing a bag as well. It can also be a lot of fun for disc golf clubs where a lot of prizes are needed at a low price. This deals box includes the following:

  • Two or Three Putters
  • Three to Five Mid-Range Discs
  • A Variety of Drivers from Understable to Overstable
  • Discs from at least 3 different manufacturers (usually more)
  • A large shoulder-strap disc bag

The discs included will not be in base plastic, but there may be two or three putters or mid-range approach discs in mid-grade plastic for better grip. The rest of the discs will be in durable, long-lasting premium plastic blends for long term use.

THE 5-DISC BUDGET BOX

The newest addition to our mystery box selection at Infinite Discs is the 5-Disc Budget Box. This one differs from the Deals Box Jr because it is entirely focused on discs in base plastic. It’s meant to be a very inexpensive way to get a few discs for a new disc golfer. Like with the Deals Box Jr, the set includes a putter, a mid-range disc, and three different drivers. It is the kind of box that you can hand to anybody who wants to get into the game and they’ll have the basic tools they need to get started at a very low cost.  That’s 5 discs at a retail price of only $29.99, which adds up to only $6 per disc. It will feature a variety of manufacturer brands for a variety and the discs will switch up from time to time, just to keep things interesting.

Best Economy Disc Golf Bags of 2019

Players are always looking for the best disc golf bags. As the disc golf season winds down for 2019, we thought it would be great to look back at the year and see what products and accessories were the most popular. That kind of information can come in handy for people looking for a gift for the disc golfer in their life. Or for someone considering making a purchase for themselves.

We are going to start with a very popular genre of disc golf bags, the Economy Disc Golf Bags. These are entry level bags that are good not only for people just starting out in the sport, but great for die-hard golfers who want to play a quick round, or who want to improve their game by throwing a round using only a couple discs. These bags are relatively inexpensive, ranging in price from $19.99 to $79.99, hold a decent amount of discs, and usually have room for a drink and some snacks. Once most of us have been in the sport for a while, we carry enough discs that the economy bags are not an option for regular use. Especially with the necessity to carry food and water during long rounds and tournaments. But, even when you move to a bigger bag, as mentioned, opportunities still arise to use the smaller bags. Let’s take a look at the top sellers in this category, in order of popularity.

Top 5 Inexpensive Disc Golf Bags

If you’re looking for a great low price disc golf backpack, consider from our top selling list:

  1. Dynamic Discs Trooper Backpack
  2. Infinite Discs Slinger Bag
  3. Infinite Discs Stealth Bag
  4. Prodigy BP3 Disc Golf Backpack
  5. Innova Discover Backpack

Top Selling Economy Backpack - DD Trooper

Dynamic Discs Trooper Backpack

Leading the pack (pardon the pun) is the popular Dynamic Discs Trooper. At $39.99 the Trooper is not the least expensive in the category, but it holds more than the rest on the list. It can carry about 18 discs in the main compartment and 3-4 discs in the upper compartment. It has a water bottle holder, and a little bit of storage for snacks, etc. The construction of the bag is good, ensuring a long life on the disc golf course. The bag comes in several colors.

 

 

Infinite Discs Slinger Bag

The next most popular disc golf bag on the list is the Infinite Disc Slinger. This pack is perfect for the beginner or experienced disc golfers who want to to play a round with variety of discs, but not all of their throwers. It holds about 10 discs, and can handle larger discs like the Condor. The single-sling design can be adjust for either shoulder. It has a drink holder for your water bottle and a pocket for miscellaneous items. The Slinger is at the low end of the category price scale at $19.99.

 

 

Infinite Stealth Bag Water Bladder BackpackInfinite Stealth Disc Golf Bag with Hydration Pack

Infinite Stealth Bag

Infinite Stealth Bag w/Bladder

The third most popular Economy Backpack Bag is the Infinite Stealth Bag. This popular bag is a kind of a niche bag. With only room for up to eight discs, the Stealth Bag is perfect for speed rounds, tough mountain courses, traveling light, or rounds using only a few discs. Though minimalist by design, the Stealth still has a water bottle holder and a pocket for snacks, phones, etc. The sleek bag even has a version with a two-liter water bladder to keep you hydrated as you play. The regular Stealth is the model that earned the third place spot, while the bladder version came in sixth place. The Stealth runs $29.99 for the regular bag, and $37.99 w/bladder. As of this posting, we are out of the Stealth and Stealth w/Bladder. We don’t anticipate getting more until 2020. Watch our weekly newsletter for updates.

Prodigy BP3 Economy Disc Golf Bag

Prodigy BP3

The Prodigy BP3 is next on the list. This bag holds up to 17 discs. It has two zippered pouches and a drink holder. It also has a deep putter pocket on the top of the bag. The BP3 has reinforced, padded straps for comfort. The bottom of the bag is made with a waterproof material, making it great for mornings when there is dew on the ground. This bag, like the Trooper, can be used as a backpack for school, vacations, hiking, etc. The BP-3 sells for $29.99.

 

Innova Discoverpack Cheap Disc Golf Bag

Innova Discover Pack

The final economy disc golf backpack on our list is the Innova Discover bag. This bag holds up to 15 discs.

It also has a zippered putter pouch on top. Use the bag on the disc golf course, day hikes, or as a school bag.  The discover back ties the Slinger for the least expensive bag at $19.99.

The price point for this category of bags makes them attractive to beginners and veteran players looking for a smaller bag. They are great for someone just starting out, or for youth players who aren’t quite big enough for a larger bag. Check out our full line of economy bags here: Economy Disc Golf Backpack Bags

FOCUS FRIDAY – EMAC TRUTH

We’re excited to continue our Focus Friday blog where we take a quick look at specific discs. We may not get a focus put together every week, but we’ll try to keep some fresh discs in the spotlight on a somewhat regular basis.

Our New Focus Friday Features the EMAC TRUTH by Dynamic Discs

The Emac Truth was a retooled version of the Dynamic Discs Truth mid-range, designed to fly with a little more stability according to the specifications of professional disc golfer and 2010 world champion, Eric McCabe (thus the “EMac” nickname). It is a wide-diameter mid-range at 21.7 centimeters width and has good glide and control. These are the flight numbers:

SPEED: 5
GLIDE: 5
TURN: 0
FADE: 2

Here is a look at pro player, Kesler Martin, giving the EMac Truth a good rip so you can see how it flies.

This week (until Saturday the 16th of November) you can get your hands on the EMAC TRUTH with a great discount of 20% OFF! Simply add the EMAC TRUTH in any plastic types to your cart, then before clicking to “Checkout,” look below your shopping cart for the Discount Code box and enter this code:

Then click “Checkout” to proceed to the payment screen with the 20% discount applied. The discount will apply to all the EMac Truth discs in your shopping cart.

NOTE: We still have a few of the full-colored “autumn leaves” EMac Truth discs if you want a funny White Elephant gift to give a friend for the holidays!

Night Disc Golf: Don’t Stop Playing Just Because the Sun Goes Down

Glow in the Dark Disc golf Discs

It’s getting to that wonderful time of year when we go to work when it’s just getting light, and often leave when it’s to dark for a traditional round of disc golf. While that can put a crimp on disc golf play, it doesn’t have to. Glow rounds are a fun way to continue playing disc golf in the evening, even when the sun sets early. At Infinite Discs we have the discs and accessories to make sure you have a fun night round, and still find your discs. Let’s check out some of the things that will make your night round a fun time in the dark.

The most important part of a night round is being able to find your disc after you throw it. The best way to do that is to make sure the disc is illuminated. There are several ways to achieve this goal.

Glow Plastic Discs

Most manufacturers offer numerous molds in glow plastic, including many of the Infinite brand molds. While some players throw these discs because of the added stability of glow plastic, they are excellent for disc golf night rounds. The advantage of using glow discs is that there is a good chance that your go-to disc comes in glow plastic, with a grip and flight you’re used to. After charging the glow plastic with a light source, the disc remains illuminated for a short time, giving you a chance to find the disc after you throw it.

A simple way to find all the glow discs for sale is to go to our advanced search, and under the “extras” category check the “glow in the dark” checkbox. If you need help doing this, this video will explain how our advanced search works.

Glow Tape Rings

Related to glow plastic are the UFO Glow Rings. In a package of Glow Rings you get a sheet of glow rings and circles that can be applied directly to your disc. The discs glow when exposed to a light source, just like glow plastic. These add no weight to your disc, so it will fly the same. Plus, you could put tape on the top and bottom, making it easy to spot your disc no matter how it comes to rest.

UV Flashlights

One of the best ways to both charge your disc and find it after the glow fades is with a UV Flashlight. These charge glow plastic significantly faster than a regular flashlight, without the blinding effect of bright light associated with a regular flashlight. Plus, if you do take a little longer than expected to find the disc after you throw it, you can use the UV Flashlight to help in the search. Simply shine the light around the area you think the disc is and when the UV light flashes across the disc, it will give it a little charge, making it easier to find. This come in especially handy if your disc lands in some bushes that are hard to peer into.

Disc Lights

A step up in the illumination department is to get actual lights for your disc. You have a few options when it comes to discs with lights. The first is to purchase battery powered tape on lights. These come in a variety of colors, even color changing, and can last several rounds. The advantage is that it will give you a good light source to find your disc.  By having players use different colors on their disc, it is easy to identify whose disc it is. The biggest advantage is that you can use your regular discs, so you know they all fly. There are a few downsides to the battery powered light. First, you need to tape it on to your disc, which means they might become detached from the disc after hitting something, making the disc hard to find. Taping the light on with clear packing tape in warmer temperatures makes the light stay on most of the time.

Another down side to the light is they are not waterproof. If you are playing a course where water may be a factor, make sure you completely cover the light with tape so water can’t reach it. One other potential downside is that if you are using a dark colored opaque disc and the disc lands light side down, you might not be able to see it. You could tape a light to the top and bottom to avoid that situation, if you don’t mind the weight. Visibility isn’t much of an issue with the more transparent discs. Infinite discs offers volume discounts on lights, so if you want to host a night round you can get the lights a little cheaper.

Nite Ize Discs

Another option for lighted discs is to purchase a disc with a built-in light. There are a few different discs for you to choose from. First, there is the NiteIze line of discs from Flashflight. They consist of three molds: a putter, a mid-range, and a driver. These discs are easily the brightest, most visible discs that you can buy. There is a single light source in the center of the disc, and fiber optic-like channels that carry the light all the way to the rim. And they look so cool in flight! The downside is that there are only those three discs, so if you don’t like the feel and flight, you don’t have a choice.

Viking Discs

One manufacturer added a line of discs that have a light built into the disc. Viking Discs offers their Fire Plastic line, which has an LED light on the bottom of the disc. The light is fairly bright. The nice thing about this option is that if you throw Viking discs, you could pick up a Fire Plastic version and be familiar with the flight. Viking has nice plastics, so even if you don’t throw them now, you could find some new discs to try. The light cover is removable to change the battery. Molds in Fire Plastic include the Rune, Nordic WarriorBarbarianRagnarokThor.

So, there you have all of the information you need to have a great time hucking in the dark. Grab some buddies for a fun round. Or maybe host a glow tournament. Discover the fun of playing at night!

To help you face the realities of the end of daylight savings time we have placed many night disc golf products including glow discs, lights, and UV Flashlights are on sale this week!

Drew Gibson Joins Infinite Discs for 2020 Season

Photo Credit: Craftlea Photography

 

 

Infinite Discs is proud and excited to announce our partnership with with touring pro Drew Gibson. Drew will be representing Infinite Discs for the 2020 season. Both Infinite and Drew are happy with the partnership. Drew will be throwing a mixed bag, including Infinite brand molds. He is looking forward to representing Infinite Discs.

“I think the (Infinite) brand is headed in the right direction, “ said Drew, “and I wanted to be a part of something that is growing.”

Get To Know Drew Gibson

 

Drew played in his first pro event late in 2012, and has been part of the touring scene ever since. He is well known for his ability to crush a drive over 600 feet, and do so with accuracy. He attributes his power to his fitness and form.

“I’d say my core strength and hips create most of the power. It’s just about being smooth,”said Drew, “and having a form that is duplicatable”.

That power and accuracy helped Drew cash at nearly every event he played this year. He feels that part of what gave him success this year was his progress on his mental game.

“I feel I’m on the final leg of becoming a well-rounded player, “ said Drew, “ not only physically, but mentally as well.”

Drew Gibson grew up in Sacramento, California playing baseball and racing dirt bikes. An injury in a preseason baseball game prevented him from throwing well and spelled the end of his baseball aspirations. So, he picked up disc golf to fill the competitive void. When he started playing disc golf he was surrounded by many of the big names in disc golf. He received encouragement from them and other locals, which pushed him to get better.

“There were a lot of players who had an influence on me over the years, “ said Drew. “Just to name a few would be Josh Anthon, Derek Billings, and Jim Oates.”

The Future

 

Drew said he was excited to represent Infinite for 2020. Not only for the freedom of disc selection, but with the opportunity to work with various manufacturers on special projects.

“I think the (Infinite) brand is headed in the right direction and I just wanted to be a part of something that is growing and see if we can’t work as a team to show the community what Infinite has to offer,” said Drew. “I think the goals for this year are large, and I think we can obtain them.”

When it comes to the near future, Drew has some simple, yet ambitious goals for the upcoming season.

“I just want to put myself in a position to win as many times as possible. I feel the more chances I have to close out an event the easier they’ll come”, he said. “I’d love to just have a strong season in 2020 and prove I can be consistent and battle for the big wins week in and week out.”

In addition to being optimistic about his future, he believes the sport will continue the growth it has been experiencing lately. He points toward Paul Mcbeth’s contract last year as evidence of a bright future for the sport.

“I think in 5 years the sport will grow tremendously. The stuff Mcbeth has done with promotion and such is just a peek into the potential I believe the sport has to offer.”

As for his longer-term outlook, Drew said, “ I’d just love to be in the mix in 5 years with Infinite on my back playing at the highest level still. I don’t think the sport or myself have cracked the potential of where it will be in 5 years.”

Pro Tip

 

Asked for any advice Drew could give up-and-coming disc golfers, Drew said, “Smooth is far. The harder you try the more difficult it’ll be! Be smooth and find your groove. Don’t try to copy someone else’s throw, just work on your form and if you put in the time it’ll come.”

Drew has shown he has the talent, ambition, and knowledge to succeed in the challenging world of professional disc golf. All of us at Infinite Discs would like to welcome him to the family, and wish him all the best as he builds on last year’s successes heading into the 2020 season, and beyond!

FOCUS FRIDAY – THE YIKUN LU (LUAN)

We’ve started taking the opportunity to focus on specific discs in specific plastic types on Fridays and call them “FOCUS FRIDAY” blogs. We may not make it on every week, but we’ll try to keep some fresh discs in the spotlight on a somewhat regular basis.

Our New Focus Friday Features the Yikun LU (or LUAN)

The LU by Yikun Discs (also called the “Luan”) was originally introduced in Phoenix Line plastic which is a durable, translucent plastic similar to popular blends like Innova Champion or Discraft Z Line. But more recently, Yikun experimented with a new version of the plastic which is now called PHOENIX STAR. This new plastic blend is gummy and flexible, like the discontinued Frost Line plastic by Latitude 64, or the sometimes seen Gummy Champion by Innova. It’s a great plastic blend for cold weather when discs tend to stiffen-up. It feels truly unique.

The disc itself came out VERY flat in the Phoenix Star plastic. It almost has the profile of a dinner plate! It is a wide rim driver at maximum “speed 14” and an overstable finish. This is a great utility disc when you want a hard fade at the end of flight, or if you love to crank sidearm (forehand) or overhand (tomahawk style). Power throwers will love cranking on the LU, and more intermediate players will find it to be a very useful overstable disc when a lot of side-to-side movement is needed on the course. The disc can also be used for a huge spike-hyzer.

Here is a little clip of an amateur throwing the overstable LU after showing how flexible it is. You can see how dramatically it fades once it loses speed.

Three Words: FLAT, FLEXIBLE, and FAST!
