If you’ve been away from disc golf for a few months, there are several new discs that have recently hit the market. Some of these new discs are completely unique and unlike any golf disc you’ve ever thrown.
In case you’re looking for some new plastic to experiment with, here’s a break down of the new additions we’ve received in the last month and a half.
Discraft Crank: The all new Crank by Discraft is nothing revolutionary, it’s simply an ultra fast driver that flies straight. The ESP plastic has been around for a while. Despite the fact that there is nothing extra-ordinarily special about it, the Crank is already our top selling disc of 2013 — and we’ve had it for sale for less than two months! In terms of total sales for the year, only the Prodigy D1, D4, and Vibram Lace come close to the Crank.
Discraft’s reputation and positive user experience have made the Crank a very popular new disc.
Innova Atlas: The Atlas really is a revolutionary disc. While there are other manufacturers that make two plastic over-mold discs, the feel and flight of the Atlas is unique. This straight flying midrange has an ultra grippy rim and a firm, flat flight plate. The Atlas’s flight path is very smooth with a most moderate fade. The grippy rim helps this disc stick to the ground and reduce skipping.
The double plastic mold make the Atlas one of the more expensive discs for sale, but those who have tried it have been nothing but impressed by the results.
Vibram unLace: The new Vibram unLace is perhaps the most understable high speed distance driver ever made. This thing is super easy to throw, and will likely become one of the top drivers for newer disc golfers looking for more distance. This disc is available in the soft x-link medium as well as the x-link firm blend giving it a great look and feel.
If you’re looking for a driver that will experience high speed turn with moderate throws, the unLace will deliver unparalleled results.
Hyzer Bomb Discs: Partnering with Millennium, Hyzer Bomb, has recently released three discs: the Mortar, Tank, and Tank Panzer. The Tank and Tank-Panzer are unique feeling putters with a thumbtrak grip available in Millennium’s soft standard plastic.
While the Tank is new to Hyzer Bomb, it’s actually an old golf disc that has been brought back from the dead. The Tank-Panzer feels like the Tank, but offers a more stable alternative. The Mortar is a very overstable midrange available in a unique softer plastic blend.
RIP Discs: RIP is not a new company, but they are new to Infinite Discs. After receiving the Innova Atlas, and then hearing that other companies have already manufactured double mold discs, we added them to our lineup. RIP currently manufactures two putters and a distance driver. The Graboide and Relic putters are completely unique. They are tall bulky discs with an incredibly hard flight plate and a soft rubbery rim. These putters are unlike anything I have ever thrown. RIP’s driver, the Ballistic, consists of only one plastic, but it is one of the grippiest plastic blends I’ve ever felt.
In addition to new disc models, we’ve also added Innova X-Outs to our product mix. This is the perfect solution if you like both Innova and cheap discs.
