Introducing Disctroyer

Disctroyer Disc Golf Discs

Disc Golf Manufacturer Spotlight: Disctroyer

 

Infinite Discs carries a large selection of brands and we want to introduce you to some of the brands and molds that you might not be as familiar with. Each week we will spotlight a different company and tell you a little more about them. Because of Covid shutdowns, our supply of discs was severely affected. Therefore, we may not have all of the molds from all of the brands we will talk about. But, it might put a few more molds on your radar for the future. We are out of the country again this week checking out Estonian disc manufacturer, Disctroyer.

The country of Estonia sits along the Baltic Sea, with Finland due north, Sweden to the west, and borders with both Russia and Latvia. According to UDisc, Estonia got their first disc golf course in 2004, and now has more than 180. Based on the population, that makes the course density at about one course for every 7360 people. If the USA had that same ratio, we could have more than five and a half times as many courses as we have now. The sport is blowing up in Estonia, and in the midst of that growth, a new company was started: Disctroyer.

Starting a Brand

The company was started in Tallinn, Estonia, by Alver Kivirüüt and Kaspar Lillmaa in 2016. The name ‘Disctroyer’ was introduced in 2018. One year later, their first disc was PDGA approved. The Starling, a high-speed driver was the first disc produced by Disctroyer. After that was the midrange, Skylark. Their third disc that was approved in 2019 was the Sparrow, a stable putter. The Stork is their fairway driver, and is the most recent release from the company.

The Disctroyer Lineup

The most popular plastic from Disctroyer is their A-Medium. As the name suggests, the plastic is middle of the road when it comes to firmness. It has a slight amount of flexibility and is a durable plastic, although the A-Hard and A-Soft have a little more grip. The A-Soft definitely has a lot of grip and flexibility, but not the durability of the Hard and Medium. Their A-Hard Plastic is popular for the Stork,

their fairway driver. The folks at Disctroyer are working on a B-plastic, which they think will be popular for their putter. That plastic is currently in the testing phase. They expect to have it in production later this year.

Disc Molds

The Starling is the high-speed member of the Disctroyer family. It is a speed-13 disc that has a little bit of turn and a reliable fade. The flight is similar to the DD Captain, Innova Shryke, or Discraft Crank. The Stork is the newest member of the Disctroyer lineup. It is a fairway driver with high-speed stability and a good fade at the end, similar to a Teebird3.

Disctroyer’s midrange, the Skylark, is a stable disc similar to the Shark in flight. Fairly straight flying, the Skylark can fight off a headwind, and still give a good fade at the end. The Sparrow rounds out the lineup. It is a slightly overstable beaded putter that flies similar to the PA-1 or Axiom Envy.

Disc Identifiers

One of the things that makes Disctroyer stand out is their desire to make the flight of their molds easy to understand and identify. To that end, they have made a clear visual method to show what type of disc you are looking at. Is the disc light grey? That would be a high speed driver. Putters are blue, midranges are red, and control drivers are yellow. Additionally, discs will have a symbol in the center that indicates the stability of the disc. A circle indicates a stable disc. A star is for overstable discs, while the plus sign means the disc is understable. This method of understanding the mold’s flight makes it easier for newer disc golfers to identify what molds they should be throwing.

Growing Disctroyer at Home

Although Disctroyer isn’t sponsoring players at the moment, they are constantly looking for ways to grow the sport, and make it better for existing players. Currently, the sport is more popular in some countries than others. Disctroyer recognizes that as an opportunity to teach about the benefits of disc

golf to communities that aren’t familiar with the sport. That desire to introduce the sport has become even more urgent with Covid19 causing disruptions with people’s lives. Now, more than ever, people need a safe activity to participate in.

 

Other ways they hope to grow the sport is by introducing it to a variety of people. Including disc golf as part of a school curriculum, teaching people in nursing homes about the benefits of disc golf, and

working with private businesses to teach their employees about the sport are ways they are working on to grow disc golf. As the sport grows, there will be more incentives for TV programs to air disc golf related content such as tournaments. Which will speed up the growth.

In addition to educating the public about disc golf, Disctroyer works to improve disc golf technology. They work with specialists in a variety of fields, including people at a university, to explore possible designs and ways to make designing more efficient. They feel that living in a small country adds more opportunities to work with people outside the industry.

On The Horizon For Disctroyer

In addition to work on another plastic, Disctroyer is also working on molds to add to their catalogue. Two molds that are in the que are a driver and a putter. For the driver, they want something more overstable, to complement the more flippy Starling. For the next putter, they want a straight flying putter. One with a little more flip than the Sparrow. It will be fun to see what future molds and plastics come out of this Eastern European company.

  • I’d love to try a Starling. Flight numbers seem comparable to the Discraft Crank which I love!

  • Very cool to see the sport going so quickly. The stork seems like a rad disc.

    • I’m a sucker for less known brands. I love striping one down the fare way, around the guys and them asking man what the hell was that and where can I get one. I’d love to try the Starling in both star and plus. I’ll be looking for them for sure !

    • I have their Sparrow putter, which I bought from infinite when you introduced their lineup. It’s got a great feel in the hand, sort of shallow like the Latitude 64 Pure. I don’t bag it at this time, but keep it in my practice stack and putt with it regularly. Looking forward to trying the Stork in the future.

  • I’d give the Stork a go.

  • I would really love to try the Stork!

  • I’m a sucker for a good putter, so I’d love to try the Sparrow.

    Also, the link above (https://infinitediscs.com/category/Disctroyer) is going to https://infinitediscs.com/category/Mint-Discs instead. Need to update the hyperlink. 🙂

  • I’d like to give the stork a try. Teebird3 is a good disc so I’d imagine I’d like the stork as well.

  • I wonder what the difference between A-soft plastic and the B plastic will be. Would love to try a starling in A-soft please. Thanks.

  • It’s crazy how many courses they have there now in Estonia over the last 17 years. That’s a good sign for the sport. It’s companies like this that are really helping the sport grow.

    I would like to try the Starling in A Medium. The flight numbers look really interesting.

  • Love the logo, but they should have reconsidered that company name: “Disctroyer” is hard to say and tickles the line of trademark infringement.

    Having said that, I’d love to try the Stork, but…does it come with a mini??

  • I would be interested in any of the discs and plastics. I’m working with my local school, as they prepare their grant for PDGA.

    It would be great to introduce these to the school’s program.

  • Tom BootyHaze Boe

    the first link of the two provided at the bottom of this post points to Mint Discs and not Disctroyer discs

  • These are such cool looking discs, and I love the color and symbol concept. I’d love to try a Skylark.

  • I’ve never heard of Disctroyer until i read this post.
    I’d love to try the Starling.

  • I’d be interested in trying a Stork. I kind of look like a stork sometimes…:-)

  • I would love to try the Sparrow putter. I recently bought the Starling and the Stork in medium plastic, and a Skylark in soft plastic. I bought them for their design and because I needed a mid-winter disc “fix”, and really like them for their flight. They got the numbers right and they fly as described. Their colors make them very easy to find off the fairway and look great. The Stork impressed me the most with its very straight flight that goes almost as far as any distance driver I bag.
    The midrange Skylark has the “+” for a little extra stability and flies like my Emac Truth.
    These would make a great set of starter discs for anyone looking for predictable flight, great feeling plastic, and standout design.
    I would be happy to try a putter in any plastic.

    • I recommend you give the Sparrow a try! I bag 2 Sparrows in A-Soft plastic and I mainly use them for anhyzer touchy approach shots – it’s a wonderful disc! I have also a Sparrow in A-Medium plastic, but I haven’t used it yet, but I’ll give it a try off the tee for driving (it reminds me a little bit of Latitude 64’s Pure).

  • Interesting. I have not thrown these. The stork could fill a spot in my bag and would be interesting to try.

  • I’d love to try the Stork.

  • Stork is the disc I would love to try in the hard plastic. I like the feel of stiffer plastic, how grippy is it though?

  • Based on the description, the Storm sounds like the most interesting to try. Cool concept with the aero inspired markings.

  • Never thrown it but can’t wait to get my hands on that stork.

  • I’d try the sparrow! Interesting to read about new companies!

  • Looks like the Stork would work best for me

  • Very interested in trying this company out. At first glance the name makes you think Destroyer. I like the simplistic stamps and I’ve not seen anyone with one of these discs out on the course yet. Would be fun to try them out!

  • I’d love to try out an A-Soft Sparrow, sounds like it could be a great putter to have in my bag!

  • The Stork has some very intriguing numbers. I also like the concept of color and symbol coding the discs. I will keep an eye on this company.

  • I love the look and would chuck that Starling around for sure!!!

  • Love the identifier system. Looks slick, and makes sense. I’d be really happy to add a sparrow to my bag.

  • The stork grabs my attention most. Sounds a great control driver for straight shots.

  • Never heard of Disctroyer but really like the looks of their discs. The stork sounds very useful for my bag.

  • What a great niche to stand apart from the crowd, love the idea. If I’ve learned anything from the “off brand” or smaller manufacturers, is they are right there in quality & consistency with the more popular brands. Would love to throw anything from them just to help promote and explore some new plastic/molds, seem like great discs for new players too, they all appear to be very workable.

  • I typically throw an Emac Truth for mid shots, and that seems like the Skylark could offer a similar flight pattern. So I’d love to try the Skylark!

  • The Stork has really intriguing flight numbers. My Teebird3 cracked so I have been looking for a replacement. I really like the simple way of color and symbol coding the discs. I will be keeping my eye on Disctroyer, I would like to try one out to see if I like the plastic. I would love to try the Stork.

  • The flight numbers for the Stork look very interesting. I would love to try one. I also like the idea of a color and symbol coding system.

    • Sorry for the triple post under different names. It kept kicking me out when I tried to verify. It actually never even showed up for me until today. Evons, Kenneth Evans are all me. I am new to the blog but I am glad to be here.

  • I would like to give th Stork a try

  • The starling looks awesome.

  • If the Stork really has just 1 fade and 0 turn on a fairway driver, I’d be very interested in trying out that disc!

  • Nathanael preston

    I would love to try the sparrow. Who doesn’t want to try a new putter to see if it will all of a sudden make them Paul Macbeth.

  • Never thrown a Disctroyer disc before but I definitely will! I have been playing for over 10 years now and am always looking for the latest and greatest. I’m already sold on the Starling as soon as it was described to be similar to the Shyrke which absolutely bombs!

  • Such a great course density, impressive. I’ve never tried them, but I’d want to try the Sparrow.

  • The stork is similar to a Teebird3? That sounds AWESOME!

  • I have never tried this disc golf brand. I would love to try the stork!

  • I’ve never tried this brand before but I’m always looking to try new things. I would love to try the skylark

  • I love the Disctroyer style and colors a ton, as soon as I found then I knew I had to get some. So far the Stork is my favorite to throw!

  • Love to try the stork. I had their mid and the plastic was amazing.

  • Cool to see disc golf spreading all over the world and growing rapidly! I’ve never tried a Disctroyer disc, but the Stork sounds like my type of disc

  • I picked up a Stork in November and it may replace the Stags I use for the bulk of my drives. A little less turn and fade but end up in the same spot, have yet to compare the two on a windy day. The Stork reminds me of the Vikings that I used to throw, in fact. Plastic (A-Hard) is like a stiff star or gold/tournament. Really good stuff

  • I haven’t tried this brand but the a soft Starling looks like a really fun disc to throw!

  • I throw the Stork and currently have three, so you could say I like it a bit. The Stork is a great disc, straight shot with a slight fade at the end. Great disc!

  • The sparrow . I dig O/S putters

  • being the latest disc thinking there getting better with every disc would like to try the stork

  • The starling would be fun to try

  • Well hopefully I win the raffle, cause I want to try out a Stork or a Skylark. But since my name is Troy I am most likely picking one of these up anyway!

  • I would like to try out the stork and see how it handles a headwind, be nice to see how it flies.

  • It’s just a play with words and I guess the common pronunciation will be “destroyer discs”.
    Trademark infringement… nah Not even remotely plausible.
