TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – JULY 16TH 2019

Welcome to another Top 20 Tuesday sales chart. We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle position. The chart is created by sales figures that are pulled from all Infinite Discs sales for the previous week — our customers decide the results with their purchases.

Top Twenty Tuesday for July 16th, 2019

#1 – ESP ANAX
#2 – ESP ZEUS (formerly the Kong)
#3 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#4 – Metallic Opto Trident
#5 – D-Line P2
#6 – Star DESTROYER
#7 – Neo METHOD
#8 – Prism Proton PYRO
#9 – ESP BUZZZ
#10 – Jawbreaker ROACH
#11 – Fuzion RAIDER
#12 – Swirly S-Blend X-Out PHARAOH
#13 – C-Line FD
#14 – Champion MAKO3
#15 – ESP COMET
#16 – Big Z ROACH
#17 – Splatter S-Blend Centurion
#18 – R-Pro PIG
#19 – Star SONIC
#20 – Star WRAITH

This week was another of those weeks where the top couple of discs just blew everything else away. The new prototype ANAX and the First Run ZEUS took the first two spots with a vengeance. If anybody has any question about whether or not a single player can swing a marketplace, just take a look at the sales of Paul McBeth’s new line and any doubts should be put to rest. The Luna putter in Paul’s line took the 3rd spot as well.

The #4 spot was taken by a disc that we just sneakily added a few to see if anybody would notice– the Metallic Opto Trident. That out-of-production overstable driver has a strong cult following! The P2 continues to be a strong-selling putter, taking the #5 spot. Other new releases like the Method and the Pyro are still handing around, as is the steady-selling Raider by Dynamic Discs.

It is interesting to see the Roach putter by Discraft moving up into the ranks, particularly in the Jawbreaker and Elite Z plastics. That Elite Z Roach is like a perfect substitute for the much-sought-after Big Z Luna.

Here is how the brands stacked up this week with the number of times they showed up in the Top 20:

–> 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 #5 spot was picked up by the D-Line P2 this week, which is a disc that steadily holds top spots on the top 20 chart week after week. Colin was the only to guess that putter for the #5 spot, so he’s the winner this week!

Discraft’s Paul McBeth Prototype Anax & First Run Zeus

Prototype Anax & First Run Zeus

The day is almost here! The Prototype Anax & First Run Zeus release Friday, July 12 at midnight eastern time. You can find the Anax here and the Zeus here at that exact time! They come in beautiful colors and many have great swirls in them. The ESP plastic feels very good!


The Anax

The Anax (pronounced “Onyx” according to Discraft) is Paul McBeth’s newest signature driver. It’s a few notches slower than the Zeus, coming in at a speed 10. Beginners may find this disc to be overstable, but more advanced players will find the Anax goes straight for a long time, maximizing it’s 6 glide rating to the fullest before fading out at the end of the flight. We made a quick video review about the Anax:

 


The Zeus

Formerly known as the Kong, the Zeus is Paul McBeth’s go-to signature distance driver.

This is an overstable distance driver, similar to a Destroyer in flight. Previously, we’ve only had access to Prototype Zeus/Kongs. Now, this release presents to us the First Run edition of the Zeus.


Be sure to pick yours up tonight at midnight eastern!

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – JULY 9TH 2019

Welcome to another Top 20 Tuesday sales chart. We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle position. The chart is created by sales figures that are pulled from all Infinite Discs sales for the previous week — our customers decide the results with their purchases.

Top Twenty Tuesday for July 9th, 2019

#1 – Prism Proton PYRO
#2 – Nexus FIREFLY
#3 – Neo METHOD
#4 – ESP ZEUS (formerly the Kong)
#5 – Star DESTROYER
#6 – Lucid RAIDER
#7 – Star ORC
#8 – Swirly S-Blend X-Out PHARAOH
#9 – R-Pro PIG
#10 – Star SONIC
#11 – DX VALKYRIE
#12 – Star WRAITH
#13 – D-Line P2
#14 – ESP BUZZZ
#15 – DX CONDOR
#16 – DX AVIAR
#17 – Metal Flake Glow C-Blend PHARAOH
#18 – Neo INSTINCT
#19 – Splatter S-Blend EMPEROR
#20 – Opto RIVER

The new Prism PYRO by Axiom took the number one spot, followed by the Nexus FIREFLY which made its debut last week (Nate Sexton’s new signature Putter). The Neo METHOD by Discmania is right up there at #3 with the Neo INSTINCT also hitting the chart at #18.

The Discraft ZEUS (used to be the KONG) is in 4th place as the prototype supply diminishes, and the Star DESTROYER holds strong at #5. The Lucid RAIDER, which has been a hard one to get in the general disc golf market, comes in at #6 in the special edition with the additional ring bottom-stamp. Much of the list seems made up of old favorites and stock editions, which means that the burst of new releases settled quickly.

WINNER – The #10 spot was snagged by the Star Sonic this week, which is Garrett Gurthie’s signature Innova disc. We had one guess for the Star Sonic, so congratulations to Kester for getting it right!

2019 Infinite Discs Signature Series Discs

As we’re enjoying the summer disc golf months, we thought that we’d introduce you to this year’s signature disc collection on the Infinite Discs brand. These are discs that we release in cooperation with professional players so that we can help to financially support their travels during the tournament season. By purchasing these great discs, you also help to contribute to their touring. If you enjoy watching these players, you want to help to grow the sport, and you want to try some new discs, we encourage you to spend the couple of dollars extra to get a signature series disc, no matter what the brand.

DAVID FELDBERG – SPLATTER S-BLEND EMPEROR

The Splatter S-Blend run of Emperor discs is technically “Run 2” and is a very solid distance driver that came out more overstable than the Run 1 I-Blend edition. The entire run is dedicated to Team Infinite player, DAVID FELDBERG, who wanted to show that quality players can use a mixed bag of different brands and still play at a high level. Yes, he does use the Emperor by Infinite Discs as a primary driver, but it fits in his bag along with discs from many great brands, and we’re happy to have him on the team.

We thought it would be fun to present two different stamps for David’s signature disc– one that focuses more on him and that has a play on the classic, Greek Olympian pose, and another that has more of a stock stamp flavor with a touch of ancient Rome.

GARRETT GURTHIE – METAL FLAKE GLOW C-BLEND PHARAOH

Infinite Discs was happy to sponsor Garrett Gurthie starting in 2018 when he was making his touring comeback. He had a 2018 signature Pharaoh and a signature Slab, but for 2019 he wanted to have a signature edition Metal Flake Glow C-Blend Emperor so that he could add it to his distance driver arsenal. Garrett is best known for his ability to throw amazing distances and he has already started to stack up some big wins in the 2019 season. Garrett is also a member of Innova’s Champion team.

This is the first edition of the Garrett Gurthie signature stamp and there will be another later in the year, so keep your eyes open!

JESSICA WEESE – SWIRLY S-BLEND PHARAOH

We’ve been happy to work with Jessica Weese since 2018 as well. She is a member of Innova’s Star team and one of the best FPO players in the game. Last year Jessica had a signature Chariot mid-range with Infinite Discs, and for 2019 she has a signature Swirly S-Blend Pharaoh which was part of a very flat-topped run with extra stability for distance throwers.

NICOLE “PICKLE” DIONISIO – C-BLEND SCEPTER

Nicole Dionisio is an FPO player from Maine who works closely with her local disc golf scene and who is loved by other professional players wherever she plays. Known affectionately as Pickle, she’s a great ambassador for the sport and is proudly sponsored by Infinite Discs. For 2018 she had a signature S-Blend Exodus, and for 2019 she fell in love with the new Scepter, which is a very overstable, flat-topped fairway driver in the Infinite Discs line.  Pickle throws a lot of forehand drives and her signature C-Blend Scepter works into her style perfectly with its beefy fade and wind-fighting power.

JOEL FREEMAN – X-BLEND SCARAB

Joel Freeman is another great player on Innova’s Champion team and who started working with Infintie Discs in 2019 for a special signature edition disc. He wanted to take his putting game to the next level for the 2019 touring season and requested a run of putters now known as the Scarab. Joel prefers the X-Blend for its good grip in all weather conditions, including rain or cold. Check out Joe’s signature X-Blend Scarab for a great, beaded putter with nice glide for both long and short putts.

COMING SOON…

Infinite Discs is also excited to announce another fun signature edition disc for 2019 which we hope to release in the end of July.

JEREMY KOLING “BIG JERM” – CONCRETE SLAB

Big Jerm got his hands on a Slab early in the 2019 season and pulled it out of his bag during a tournament to give it a try. He ended up loving its flat profile and overstable, high-speed flight. While doing commentary for a professional disc golf round on Youtube, he jokingly called the plastic type “concrete” so that he could say he was throwing a “Concrete Slab,” so Infinite Discs decided to run with that name. The signature Slab for Big Jerm is a mix of metal flake and luster C-Blend plastic which we’ll obligingly call “Concrete.”

Other partnerships with other great players are in the works. Infinite Discs is excited to help support these great players with fun discs that they enjoy throwing. 

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – JULY 2ND 2019

Welcome to another Top 20 Tuesday sales chart. We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc.

Top Twenty Tuesday for July 2nd, 2019

#1 – Big Z LUNA
#2 – Prism Proton PYRO
#3 – ESP ZEUS (formerly the Kong)
#4 – Star DESTROYER
#5 – R-Pro PIG
#6 – Neutron STABILIZER
#7 – Cosmic Neutron STABILIZER
#8 – Cosmic Electron Firm ENVY
#9 – Cosmic Electron Medium ENVY
#10 – Swirly Star WRAITH
#11 – Fission PHOTON
#12 – Tour ESP BUZZZ
#13 – Star WRAITH
#14 – D-Line P2
#15 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#16 – DX AVIAR
#17 – K3 REKO
#18 – Cosmic Electron Soft ENVY
#19 – KC Pro ROC
#20 – Star SONIC

We saw almost a complete change-out of the entire top 20 chart from last week. Very few discs remained on the chart as new releases dominated this last week. The Big Z LUNA completely overshadowed everything else in terms of quantity sold. It was a popular limited edition release that got a lot of attention as Paul McBeth was seen bombing it for long distances in tournament play.

Then the new releases from Axiom, MVP, and Streamline really filled up the chart with the Stabilizer overstable putt-and-approach from Streamline taking two spots in two plastics, the Cosmic Electron Envy taking three spots with firm, medium, and soft, and the Prism Proton PYRO shooting on up to the #2 spot on the chart.

You’ll notice that the name of the Kong changed to the ZEUS and took the #3 spot. The original prototypes are running out now as the official “first run” approaches. The Star DESTROYER held on strong with the #4 spot and the R-Pro PIG is still seeing love with the flying pig stamp and moved to #5 on the cart.

Here is how the brands looked this last week with the number of spots they claimed on the chart:

WINNER – The #20 spot was a hard one to guess. Nobody hit it right with the Star Sonic this week, which probably got a bump from Garrett Gurthie’s weekend win. Congratulations to Garrett, but sorry to the guesses for the week.

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – JUNE 25TH 2019

We missed last week’s “Top 20 Tuesday” update because we were on the road at the Ledgestone Open and didn’t get a chance to write the blog, so this week’s report will calculate the sales for the last two weeks.

We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle position. The chart is created by sales figures that are pulled from all Infinite Discs sales for the previous week — our customers decide the results with their purchases.

Top Twenty Tuesday for June 25th, 2019

#1 – Star DESTROYER
#2 – R-Pro PIG
#3 – ESP KONG
#4 – D-Line P2
#5 – Neo INSTINCT
#6 – Splatter S-Blend EMPEROR
#7 – Star Glow DESTROYER
#8 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#9 – Star WRAITH
#10 – ESP BUZZZ
#11 – Fuzion RAIDER
#12 – DX AVIAR
#13 – Star ORC
#14 – Plasma PILOT
#15 – Neutron ENTROPY
#16 – Star LEOPARD3
#17 – 400G D3 MAX
#18 – KC Pro AVIAR
#19 – XT Mix NOVA
#20 – Star VALKYRIE

 

The Star DESTROYER jumped right back up to the #1 spot when calculating in the last two weeks, followed by the R-Pro PIG which gained new life (and wings) with the Infinite Discs special edition flying pig stamp (just restocked that one too). That put the ESP KONG into the #3 spot and we’ve picked up intelligence that the prototype run is over– Discraft is sold out of those.

The Splatter S-Blend Emperor made its debut in the last couple of weeks, so it stands at #6, followed by the Philo Star Glow Destroyer.  Other new releases still holding strong are the Fuzion Raider distance driver, the overstable putt-and-approach disc, the Entropy, and the D3 Max distance driver by Prodigy.

Here is a look at how many times different brands appeared on the chart, with Innova taking exactly half of the spots during this 2-week period:

WINNER – Two people guessed that the #12 spot would be taken by the DX Aviar. Since we missed a week, we’ll award both of those guesses, so congratulations Steven and Owen!

Getting Ready for Masters Worlds – Sandy Creek Sling — Dave Feldberg Blog Post #3

One last event to practice for Masters World’s in Vermont. The Sandy Creek sling is a one day C-tier which I won in 2018. Being that it is in Athens and on a course I really like, I headed there to defend my title. It looked like a gloomy day kinda of misting but was playable and not steaming hot. I was placed in a somewhat featured group that included the top other two rated players in the event Jason Light and Austin Lytle. We played two holes and they called it for lightening. I went birdie, eagle with a 75 foot putt right before they blew the horn. We waited around for 4 hours and I though they were just going to call it.

But they sent us out there to finish the 16 holes and make it an official event. The lightning was gone but the rain was still in full force. Luckily I had my new pro Pull sponsored super umbrella and Ryan my buddy on the bag. I came out and played pretty well taking a commanding 5 stroke lead headed on to hole 11. Austin pushes a little as the rain and my grip had reached it saturated point, but I held on to win by 3. So now I have an A, B, and a C- tier win in the open division this year. I really mixed it up throwing many different discs. After birding 4 out of 5 holes all with different brands J-Light looked at me and said “you really do throw everything, huh”. I went Latitude, Prodigy, Innova, and Kastaplast all birdies.

Getting ready for Masters Worlds as my next event. I am excited to defend the title and look forward to what I am told will be fair fun courses. Patrick Brown and I will defend our doubles title to start the week and then I will be on my quest for a second title. I have found that it is hard to repeat in any event, but I have noticed with my new mixed bag that when I am playing well, my level is higher than last year. Plus my jump putt is much better now that I have old blackie back .

On a business level I see NG getting smoother every day. It has its hick ups, but overall we are on the rise. The funny thing is people ask me why should I play NG? Besides all the prizes and such, I ask them, why did you play your local C-tier? I didn’t know we had to give players a reason to play tournament golf. Our goal was just to make that experience better.

On a personal level I just celebrated my first Father’s Day and Synthya is so sweet. From gifts to homemade steak and potatoes she made me feel special. Leomax is growing fast and he is so smart!! I just rented my first pressure washer and waved my house . Those things are pretty fun. I have also been working on getting a few courses put in so we have something decent to play. Looking good to put in a championship course here in Georgia!!

Going to Vermont now, wish me luck!!!

#20 – Pure White WIZARD

The hot-seller this last week was the limited run of Plasma PILOT discs from Streamline to support the MVP Open at Maple Hill. The Star DESTROYER got a nice boost from the release of the “Destroy!” stamp here at Infinite Discs. Then the chart was rocked by Discraft with a bunch of tournament support discs for this year’s Ledgestone Open, with some of those special editions selling-out quickly. Even the KONG was pushed down to #7 from all the action on the chart. The Fuzion Raider moved up a few spots to #9, still holding strong as a popular new driver. The KEYSTONE putter as featured in the Trilogy Challenge is still on the chart as well.

Here is a look at how the different brands hit the charts this week:
