New Line of Discs – Prodiscus

IMG_2063Yesterday we received a shipment from Finland — a box of Prodiscus Discs.

Prodiscus discs are available in two different plastics. The Premium plastic is like a gummy Innova Champion plastic (very similar to Prodigy plastic), while their basic plastic is like a soft pro plastic. These discs look great, and fly better.

Prodiscus currently has six discs on the market including two distance drivers, two fairway drivers, a mid range and a putter. Once they get something understable, I’ll be happy playing a Prodiscus only bag. I was very satisfied with these discs during my test round with them, and especially liked the JOKERi putter.

Here are more details about each disc:

[box type=”bio”]

Distance Drivers:

SLAIDi 12/5/0/3
LEGENDa 13/5/-1/3

Fairway Drivers:

RESPECTi 8/4/0/2
LASERi

Midrange:

MIDARi 5/4/-1/2

Putters:

JOKERi 4/3/0/2

[/box]

These discs are new to us, as well as to most of you. Like always, if you’ve thrown Prodiscus in the past, please rate and review these discs on our site. Our goal is to provide the best disc golf shopping experience, and it’s nice to hear what others think of discs before deciding to buy them (especially online).

 

Best Midrange Golf Disc?

Top Mid Range Golf Discs

Which Midrange Disc is The Best?

Many disc golfers primarily throw their mids on short courses. These discs can be used for drives, fairway shots, approach shots, and sometimes even putts – no wonder many golfers favorite discs are their mids.

Every disc golf manufacturer makes at least one mid range disc. On our site alone, there are 71 different midrange options.

New Midranges Hitting the MarketRecently a handful of new midrange golf discs hit the market. We have new midrange discs from Westside, Prodigy, and MVP, Dynamic Discs, and Latitude 64. Innova will be releasing new midrange discs like the Shark3 and Mako 3 soon as well. For extreme disc golfers that like testing all the latest discs, this is a lot of midrange to digest all at once.

Will these new mids be better than the ultra popular Innova Roc and Discraft Buzzz? The technology of drivers over the last few years, has made great strides, but midrange discs really get better? Or will Roc’s and Buzzz’s reign supreme for another decade?

From professional disc golfers to those who casually throw Frisbee’s around, we have asked the question, what mid-range golf discs are best?

[box type=”bio”]
Buzzz-Elite-Z

The Buzzz Remains Supreme

 

Our site visitors have spoken, and despite so many different midrange options, the Discraft Buzzz is clearly the highest rated.

If disc golfers used other mids as much as the Buzzz, it is possible that this dominance wouldn’t be as pronounced. The Buzzz has been around for more than a decade, and is likely the most common golf disc. The fact is that disc golfers continue to like it, and use it.

While player skill has a bigger impact on one’s game than disc selection, confidence and scores improve by using good discs. Disc golfers perform better with discs they know and are used to.

As of March 22, 2013, 36% of our poll participants said that the Buzzz is the best midrange disc. It is versatile, consistent, and reliable for beginners, intermediate players, and professionals.

In second place, 19% said they liked Innova midrange discs other than the Roc. The Innova Shark had a high number of votes, likely because it is a very common Innova disc, available in starter sets. Many new players who begin playing with the Shark get used to it and stick with it.

Ten percent of respondents like at least one of the many different variations of the Roc, while another ten percent think that “other” Discraft midrange discs such as the Meteor, Hawk, and Wasp are best.

The Vibram Obex and Ibex ranked fifth (7%), followed by Gateway midranges (6%), Latitude 64 midranges (4%), other midranges (4%), and Westside midrange drivers (3%).

Win A Free Westside Disc!

Westside Golf Discs

It’s giveaway time…!

Westside has been standing out recently with the release of 3 new discs, so we want to hear what you think about Westside plastic!

Westside plastic looks amazingWestside makes arguably the best looking discs. While most of the manufacturers have unique artwork stamped on discs, they usually don’t print them on the premium plastic. With Westside you’ll find sweet looking images like the King, Stag, Tursas, Sword, and Underworld on both their durable (VIP) and premium (Tourney) lines of plastic. Why, because they’re Westside!

Who is Westside?If you’re not familiar with Westside Discs, they are a small manufacturer out of Finland. The manufacturing of their discs is actually done by Latitude 64 in Sweden. Thus, their plastic molds are the same fine quality that we find from Lat 64. Westside VIP = Opto Line and Tournament = Goldline. Top disc golfers agree that Latitude 64 currently makes the best plastics available.

Which discs do they offerWestside almost has a full line of golf discs at this point. With the addition of three new discs this week (Stag, Tursas, Underworld), they now have ten discs for sale. Five distance drivers, two fairway drivers, two mid range discs, and a putter.

Contest Rules
To be eligible for this contest, rate and write reviews on as many Westside discs as you have played with (on their disc specific product pages on infinitediscs.com).
If you haven’t played with Westside yet, find a friend and borrow theirs, or buy a few at our incredibly low prices. Each quality review is counted as one point, so the more reviews you have, the greater your odds are of winning.

If you’re one of our faithful stellar reviewers, and have already written reviews on Westside discs, you’re eligible too. Simply sit back and hope you win, or increase your odds by buying and reviewing those discs you haven’t written about yet.

This contest ends on Friday MARCH 29th, 2013, when we will randomly select one of the reviews as the winner. This gives you three weeks.

What is a Quality Review?

A quality review tells us about you, and about how the disc works for you. For example “I love this disc,” as your review actually tells us nothing which is of worth. That review won’t count if we draw it as a winner.Something more useful would be “I’ve only been playing for a year, and I love this disc. My throws on a drive with these types of discs typically go about 225-250 feet, and with my beginner arm they turn at just the right moment before it falls…” See, that was more insightful to a beginner.

Which disc do I win?

You may choose from ANY Westside disc we have in Stock. It can be one of the new molds, or any other Westside Disc.

Frolf Discs

Stacks of Frolf Discs

Welcome to InfiniteDiscs.com!

You have probably found this page because you’ve played a round of frolf (frisbee golf) or two, or three, and are interested in getting some golf discs.

There are primarily two types of frisbee golfers: those who play occasionally and refer to the flying discs as “frisbees or frolf discs,” and hard core players who refer to these objects only as “discs”. Now, I’m sure the terminology varies by location, years playing, etc., but here is my basic run down of frolfers vs. disc golfers.

Frolfers use one to three discs per round, sometimes actual Frisbees, and can rarely throw more than 200 feet. While frolf is sometimes played on actual courses with chain filled baskets, it is also played with using trees, poles, or other objects as targets.

Hard core “disc golfers” own literally dozens of discs in a variety of different plastic makes and blends. These players have huge backpacks they use to carry around their discs made by companies such as Innova, Discraft, and Latitude 64. These disc golfers can throw their distance drivers 300, 400, and sometimes even 500+ feet.

As a good frolfer, I thought I could throw a frisbee pretty hard until I started playing with with real disc golfers.

Best Discs for Frolfers

There are literally hundreds of different frisbee golf discs available. The reality is that most discs made specifically for disc golf are not suitable for beginning frolfers. Throwing “high-speed overstable discs” will simply provide more frustration for a player trying to master the game.

Our site has several tools to help golfers find the absolute best frolf discs.

1. Sort by discs that are recommended for beginners.

Using our “find the perfect disc” feature, one of the options is, “player skill level.” By selecting beginner, you’ll be able to see different putters, midrange discs, and drivers, that will help improve performance for a round of frolf. Click this link to see the best frolf discs for beginners.

2. Beginner Frolf Sets

One of the best way to get good golf discs for beginners, at a good price, is to purchase a beginner set. We offer several different variations of starter sets. If you want the least expensive starter set, then you’ll want to consider our Gateway beginner set. Here’s a quick link to view all of our package sets.

3. Beginners guide to buying golf discs
Our beginners guide to buying frolf discs goes over some of the basics of golf discs, as well as tips to help navigate our site. This will help you to understand what the many different disc golf options mean, like the differences between plastic types, disc weights, and the best ways to get cheap frisbees. Read the beginners guide now.

Cheap Frolf Discs

If you’re looking for cheap, inexpensive discs, then you have also come to the right place. We offer the best price for frisbee golf discs. For even lower prices, be sure to check out our “on-sale discs” page.

While there are many different manufacturers and models of frisbee golf discs, the biggest key to determine which discs are inexpensive has to do with the plastic type. The cheapest frolf discs available come in an inexpensive plastic that isn’t very durable. For most frolfers, these inexpensive discs work just fine and fly well enough, even when they are “broken in” a little and have a few dings. To sort solely by discs with cheap plastic, use this link.

Buying discs online is very easy, and our shipping is incredibly affordable. Shipping for the first disc is just $2.81 and $1.98 for each additional disc. Most disc purchases arrive at your home in two to three days. Even with shipping added, our prices are much better than local sporting good stores.

Frolf, Frisbee Golf, Disc Golf, or whatever you want to call it, is a great sport. We at InfiniteDiscs.com want to be your disc supplier, regardless of how serious you are or what you want to call it.

Exciting Things in 2013

January 29, 2013 — The last part of 2012 was both the launch of InfiniteDiscs.com as well as exciting growth for the disc golf world. Many of you have inspired us to continue to bring bigger and better things for the upcoming year.

We would like to let you all in on a few of the plans which we have for this year.

Disc Giveaways

For those reading this right now and just want to know how to win some plastic, jump ahead to the rules of entry by clicking here. Otherwise, continue reading for some great info!

In our first month and a half of business, we gave away fifty custom stamped Skyquest Medusas. In 2013, we would like to focus on both highly popular discs which are a staple to disc golfers, and new releases to support smaller/ up and coming disc manufacturers.

Our first giveaways of 2013 will be Prodigy’s first run D1 and D4. Because of the incredibly high demand for these discs, and the limited release, the retail value of these is currently $20! We sold out of the discs set aside for pre-sale within hours of our official pre-sale announcement.

We feel that one of the best ways to give back to those who give so much to the sport is to do a variety of giveaways. Giveaways may include: best/favorite photos submitted, best reviews submitted, random Facebook fans, random disc reviewers on our site, and many others!

Check our Facebook page (Facebook page here) frequently for disc giveaways. Also feel free to subscribe to our newsletter here to receive emails of giveaway news, sales, and upcoming disc releases.

New Disc Releases

As mentioned above, 2013 is bringing many new and exciting discs to the market. Smaller players are bringing higher quality and better flying discs to the table more and more frequently, giving the major disc brands some competition. All-in-all this is great for the sport as manufacturers continue to step up their game, producing better discs, increasing competition, and lowering cost.

  • Vibram recently released the Lace, in their popular X-Link rubber, and plan to release it in X-Link firm within the next month. This disc hit the market and instantly became arguable the furthest flyer – our experience shows this disc is perhaps the best for ‘big arms’. Pre-orders for that will be available soon.
  • MVP Disc Sports recently released the Volt as a fairway driver. At the beginning of February, expect to see the MVP Shock hit shelves as a more overstable Volt.
  • Westside Discs in 2012 that they would be releasing three more discs in the earlier part of 2013 – The Underworld, Tursas, and the Stag. These discs look to expand the variety of discs in the midrange game and add even more to a players arsenal.
  • Prodigy Disc has made a huge splash on day 1 of 2013. Credibility for this small company who has their fair share of the worlds elite disc golf professionals is yet to be established. With their first distance drivers to be released within days, the rest of their lineup will be following within the next few months. What will the discs be called? The M1, M2, M3, and M4 for midranges and P1, P2,  etc. putters respectively?
    To date, Prodigy has done a good job at keeping everyone within the disc golf community guessing. Release dates on the remainder of the Prodigy line is still ambigious, subscribe to our newsletter for updates!
  • Dynamic Discs recently made their own product line, with the Trespass, Escape, Fugitive and Judge. We will be carrying these discs shortly!
  • Legacy Discs now has a full line up of golf discs. They recently released on overstable fairway driver the Rival, and will be releasing the understable Patriot within the next week.

Expanded Product Lineup

Within the next few months, we are going to be able to offer more than just discs. We will be expanding to offer a variety of baskets, bags, and other disc golf gear!

At this point, we have no intention to place our stamp on any of the product – watch for that in 2014. For now, we would just like to get disc golf gear to you quickly, and at lower cost.

Live Inventory

Many of you have frequent questions about which inventory we have in stock. One of our upcoming projects is to display live inventory – this is under development so may take some time.

In the mean time, if you ever have a question on available discs, please feel free to email us at orders@infinitediscs.com.

According to Inbounds Disc Golf, this is the farthest flying disc in the world, and an amazingly straight flyer for such a fast disc. Right now the Lace is available in the ultra durable and grippy X-Link firm rubber.

Vibram just announced that the Lace will be released in a firmer X-link on March fifth. This is great news for golfers who want this great disc in a harder blend.

Fun Fact About Vibram

Q: Do you know the correct pronunciation for the word Vibram?

A: V-ee-brum

It’s true, the letter i in there makes makes an ee sound, and the a-m makes a sound like um (not an am sound). Of course, don’t be a stickler over this – the most common incorrect pronunciation is V-I-brum. If you don’t follow the phonetics of the explanation, don’t worry either – just keep throwing the disc!

It isn’t uncommon for companies to have their name mispronounced, and nobody is offended when the phonetics don’t seem to match up. Just ask Ryobi (Ree-Oh-Bee) and Hyundai (rhymes with Sunday) about that.[/box]
