Best Disc Golf Roller Disc–Winner

It is time to announce our winner of the Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Roller Discs! We recognize that all of these posts are subjective, and this category is especially subjective as there are lots of popular discs used for rollers. But in choosing our nominees and the eventual winner, we tried to pick discs that are popular and offer great performance for all skill levels. Here are the nominees once again:

And here is our selection for the winner:

THE INFINITE DISCS BEST DISC GOLF DISC: ROLLER DISC

INNOVA SIDEWINDER

This is the Innova Sidewinder‘s second nomination and first win. Like was mentioned above, this category is especially subjective, but for disc golfers of any skill level who want to learn how to throw a roller, the Sidewinder is a great choice. The Sidewinder is an understable driver that offers a nice smooth turning flight pattern that can easily be manipulated for rollers. So whether you are new to the roller or a roller veteran, the Innova Sidewinder is a fantastic disc to throw. Our next category and nominees will be announced soon!

Best Disc Golf Roller Discs

Well, the holidays are over, and it is the dreaded disc golf off season! But we at Infinite Discs are doing our best to make the snow and cold more bearable! It is time for the next article in our best discs series. Today, we are announcing the nominees for The Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Discs: Roller Disc. It has been a couple weeks, so just to review, the two key words we always use when choosing our best discs are popularity and utility. The utility part of this equation is a little tougher when it comes to roller discs, because a roller shot is generally a skill shot that is executed by more experienced disc golfers. However, we will try to include popular discs and ones that are good for learning how to throw the roller. This is a difficult category, because the roller can be executed in a variety of ways with a variety of discs. All that being said, here are our nominees!

 

Prodigy F7

The Prodigy F7 is considered THE roller disc in the Prodigy lineup. It is their most understable fairway driver, and it is available in lots of weights and plastic blends. Prodigy is sometimes considered not beginner friendly because their discs tend to be less understable, but the F7 is a great choice for learning the roller, and continuing to use as your game improves.

 

Discmania FD

The Discmania FD was nominated in our best beginner discs, and in that post I mentioned how the D-Line FD is noticeably more understable than the other plastic types. A lighter weight might be too understable for roller shots, but a heavier D-Line FD is a great choice for learning the roller shot and executing it with consistency.

 

Latitude 64 Fury

The Latitude 64 Fury has become somewhat of a forgotten disc in the Trilogy lineup of discs with all the new releases they have come out with in recent years. But the Fury remains as one of the great understable fairway drivers in their lineup that is great for air shots and rollers. It is a great roller disc for golfers of all skill levels.

 

Westside Hatchet

Similar to the Fury, the Westside Hatchet feels like a somewhat forgotten disc in the Trilogy lineup of discs. But for those who have been using both of these discs, many would find it hard to replace them. The Westside Hatchet performs a bit more understable than it’s flight ratings indicate. It is a fantastic fairway driver that disc golfers of all skill levels use not just for rollers, but also long turning air shots.

 

Innova Leopard

This is the third nomination for the Innova Leopard. This is one of the most popular fairway drivers for beginners and experienced disc golfers, and it can be used in a variety of ways. The Leopard is a great choice for learning and executing the roller shot that is available in a variety of plastic blends.

 

MVP Orbital

The MVP Orbital is an extremely understable distance driver that works well as a distance roller disc. This disc is a great first distance driver for newer golfers. Then as those beginners’ arm speeds improve, the Orbital can then be used by those same players as a roller disc.

 

 

Westside Queen

The Westside Queen is by far the highest speed disc on this list. Generally Fairway drivers are chosen for roller discs, but the Westside Queen is very understable for how fast it is, and it allows for a lot of air time before it makes contact with the ground and begins its roll, which makes it a good choice for longer distance rollers and ones in a more open fairway.

 

Innova Sidewinder

This disc was also nominated in our beginner discs post, and in that blurb I mentioned that it has grown in popularity as a roller disc. The Innova Sidewinder has been a popular choice for players of all skill levels for a long time. Newer players may have a hard time rolling a max weight Sidewinder, but they should be able to work with the lighter weights. Part of what makes the Sidewinder so popular is its use for hyzer-flip air shots and roller shots.

THE INFINITE DISCS BEST DISC GOLF DISC: ROLLER DISC

INNOVA SIDEWINDER

This is the Innova Sidewinder‘s second nomination and first win. Like was mentioned above, this category is especially subjective, but for disc golfers of any skill level who want to learn how to throw a roller, the Sidewinder is a great choice. The Sidewinder is an understable driver that offers a nice smooth turning flight pattern that can easily be manipulated for rollers. So whether you are new to the roller or a roller veteran, the Innova Sidewinder is a fantastic disc to throw.

Best Disc Golf Beginner Discs

As we enter the new year it’s the perfect time to discuss the best disc golf discs for beginners! What is a beginner disc? Today we are looking for discs that you would purchase for someone who has never thrown a disc before or maybe only played a handful of times.

Like always, the two key words we use when choosing our best discs are popularity and utility. We want to choose a beginner disc that is popular and can be utilized by many disc golfers. Since this category is beginner discs, the last key word is kind of baked into the name of the category. It is vitally important that the best beginner disc can be utilized by beginner disc golfers (obviously…).

So, without further ado, here are our nominees:

  • Discraft Archer
  • Dynamic Discs Breakout
  • Latitude 64 Diamond
  • Discmania FD
  • Latitude 64 Jade
  • Innova Leopard
  • Innova Mamba
  • Innova Roadrunner
  • Innova Sidewinder

Best Disc Golf Discs for Beginners

Discraft Archer

The Discraft Archer is one of the newest discs on this list as it was recently the disc featured in the 2016 Discraft Ace Race. The Archer is kind of a hybrid between a midrange and control driver featuring a small rim that fits comfortably in all sizes of hands. As will be the case with all of our nominees today, it is an understable disc. The midrange in the disc allows it to glide and hold straight in the air with minimal fade at the end.

Dynamic Discs Breakout

A few of our nominations today are discs that were designed and made specifically with the beginner in mind, and the Dynamic Discs Breakout is one of those discs. The Breakout is available in a few plastic types, but it is only made in lighter weights. It is not the most understable of the beginner made molds, but the lighter weight allows the disc to perform more understable and makes it a great choice for the first driver for newer as well as younger players who do not have the arm strength of an adult.

Latitude 64 Diamond

The Latitude 64 Diamond is also a disc designed for the beginner disc golfer. The Diamond is available in several plastic types but again, it is not available in heavy weights. The Diamond is one of the most understable discs on the market, and when you combine that with the lighter weights it is made in, the Diamond becomes a great choice for people who have never played disc golf before.

Discmania FD

The Discmania FD is a beginner disc that players can grow their game around as it is still a popular disc among experienced disc golfers as well. As mentioned in previous posts, Discmania does a good job of differentiating different runs and plastic blends for each disc, and the D-Line FD is noticeably more understable than the other plastic types, making it a great choice for beginners.

Latitude 64 Jade

The Latitude 64 Jade is kind of the cousin of the Diamond. Both discs are only available in light weights and designed specifically for beginner disc golfers. The Jade offers a little more stability than the Diamond, but it is still a great choice for an understable beginner driver. So if you tried the Diamond and think you’d want to try something with just a hair more stability, the Jade would be a great next disc for you.

Innova Leopard

The Innova Leopard was featured as one of our fairway drivers nominees, and like the FD it is also a disc that players can learn to build their game around. The DX Leopard is featured in the popular Innova Starter Sets, and is one of the most used discs for beginners as it is widely available in sporting goods stores. It is also popular as it is one of the least expensive plastic blends, so folks who are maybe just wanting to give disc golf a try will choose a cheaper disc like a DX Leopard.

Innova Mamba

This is by far the highest speed disc on our list today. Generally distance drivers are not great beginner discs, but the Innova Mamba is so understable it has been a popular choice for beginners for a long time. The Mamba is also a popular second or third disc choice for beginners, and is a great first distance driver for those who are trying out the higher speeds for the first time.

Innova Roadrunner

These final two nominees are pretty similar, and players who haven’t used either of them often get them mixed up. But the Innova Roadrunner is the slightly more understable of the pair of discs, which in some ways could be used to argue that it is also more beginner friendly. Another nice thing about the Innova Roadrunner is beginner disc golfers can learn to continue using this disc as their game improves.

Innova Sidewinder

The Innova Sidewinder has been around for a long time, but has definitely seen a resurgence in the sales charts. Part of this could be because of its increasing popularity as a roller disc. But the Sidewinder also has always been a popular choice as a beginner disc with an easy to use understable flight that is easy to learn and grow with.

And those are all of our nominees! Check back next week to find out our choice for the winner!

THE BEST DISC GOLF DISC for Beginners 2019: Latitude 64 Diamond

This category was difficult to choose a winner in. All of our nominees and many others that were not nominated are great discs for beginners. But the Latitude 64 Diamond is one of the few disc golf discs that is manufactured specifically for beginners, and it has become one of the most popular and loved discs in that category. The Latitude 64 Diamond is one of the most understable fairway drivers on the market, and it is only manufactured in lighter weights which gives it more understability. This in turn makes it one of the easiest drivers to throw for players who are just learning how to throw disc golf discs. It is also a great selection for weaker arms and children who are starting to play disc golf. If you are new to disc golf and have struggled throwing some of the old discs that your friends have let you borrow, grab a Latitude 64 Diamond and give it a try.

Best Disc Golf Approach Discs

The Christmas Holiday is fast “approach”-ing! Seems like a great time to talk about the best disc golf approach discs! What is an approach disc? for our purposes today, we are going to be talking about the discs you would use inside of your personal driving range when you are trying to set up a nice and easy putt to finish off a hole out on the course.

Before we list our nominees for The Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Approach Disc, let’s again review what we are looking for when making our selection. Our two key words are popularity and utility. We want to choose a popular approach disc that is utilized and can be utilized in a variety of situations out on the course. We also are not limiting these discs that are just categorized in the more broad putt and approach classification of discs, but they can be from any of the four traditional classifications.

That being said, we do not track this subcategory in our sales lists, so we will first review the chart we had on last week’s post, which is the best selling Putt and Approach discs of 2018 so far:

Top sellers of 2018:

  1. Discmania P2
  2. Innova Aviar
  3. Dynamic Discs Judge
  4. Westside Harp
  5. Dynamic Discs Warden
  6. Axiom Envy
  7. Gateway Wizard
  8. Innova Nova
  9. Innova Sonic
  10. Latitude 64 Pure

Now, here are our nominees!

Prodigy A2

Prodigy Disc recognized the difference between putters and approach discs a few years ago with the release of their “A” series of discs. all four discs in the series have been popular, but the Prodigy A2 has been the best seller this year, and it offers a stability that makes it very workable for disc golfers. It is an overstable disc with a more shallow molding that is comfortable in the hand. If you don’t put enough power behind it, it can be a bit of a meathook, but when thrown hard with a smooth release the A2 will hold straight and offer a reliable fade at the end.

Axiom Envy

The Axiom Envy was included in our nominees for best putter, and this overstable putter works great for those looking for a nice overstable approach disc that they can also use for putting. It has a nice flat top and a rim that fits comfortably in the hand for both backhand and forehand throws. The Envy is now available in a large variety of Axiom‘s plastic blends as well.

Innova Firebird

The Innova Firebird is the only driver we are nominating as an approach disc as it is a commonly used disc especially for forehand approach shots. The Firebird is an overstable disc that is especially popular for those who have a hard time gripping midranges or putters with a forehand grip. It is also a great option for approach shots in a stiff wind.

Innova Gator

The Innova Gator is definitely one of the staples of this category. It was nominated in our midrange awards a few weeks ago, but it is mostly used as a true approach disc. The Gator is an overstable disc that features a flat top (sometimes :)) and a noticeable bead along the bottom of the disc. It is a disc that is great in the wind and offers a little more distance than some of the putters we have nominated as well.

Westside Harp

The Westside Harp has become one of the most popular discs as Ricky Wysocki has thrown it all over his tour over the last few years. With Latitude 64 announcing that Wysocki will no longer be a part of their sponsorship team, it will be interesting to see if he will still throw the Harp. But either way, the Westside Harp is a fantastic overstable approach disc that has also become a very popular forehand disc. It is available in several plastic blends that offer slight variations in stability and flight that help to make the Harp one of the best approach discs on the market.

Dynamic Discs Justice

Another disc that we nominated in the midrange category, the Dynamic Discs Justice is a beefy overstable disc that is often used as an approach disc. It is great for making an approach when you need to get around a sharp corner. It also holds up in stiff winds. Like I said in the midrange article, pretty much nothing is going to make the Justice turn over in flight.

Hyzerbomb Mortar

The Hyzerbomb Mortar was also nominated in the midrange discs, but it is primarily used as an approach disc. The mold is just like an Innova Gator but it has a beadless rim. This makes it more friendly to forehand throws, but it still has a strong overstable flight that is workable from all over the disc golf course.

Innova Nova

The Innova Nova is one of only two Innova molds that features an overmold design, and it has grown into one of the most popular discs in their lineup. The Nova is not very popular as a putting putter, but is has one of the most unique flights in the disc golf world. It also has a unique mold and shape that is one of the tallest discs. It is a truly stable disc in that it is very straight with almost no fade at all at the end. It is a bit touchy and can be turned over in the wind or if thrown too hard. But when thrown correctly, it flies so straight and reliable.

Discmania P2

The Discmania P2 was also nominated in our putter category and is currently the best selling putt and approach disc on the market. I mentioned last week that Discmania has done a great job of differentiating be benefits of each plastic type, and that is especially applicable to those who use the P2 as an approach disc. The S-Line P2 is known as the most overstable P2 and the D-Line is one of the more understable versions. Both plastic blends are popular driving putters that can serve different purposes for your approach game.

Best Approach Disc of 2018: WESTSIDE HARP

In this category we nominated putters and midranges ranging from stable to very overstable, and the Westside Harp is the perfect middle ground of all of them. It is an overstable putt and approach disc that disc golfers fall in love with after just a few throws. The Harp‘s flat profile and smooth rim makes it a great selection for forehand and backhand throws. It has enough stability to fight some wind and provide a predictable fade, but it isn’t a meathook that is going to be too much for newer throwers to handle. The Westside Harp is a great addition to any disc golfer’s arsenal, and is our choice for the best approach disc on the market.

Best Disc Golf Midrange Discs

It’s time to keep naming the absolute best disc golf discs in the world! At least, the best in our opinion! Today we will be naming our nominees for the best disc golf midrange discs on the market today.

Before I list the nominees for The Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Midrange Disc, lets break down what we are looking for when selecting these discs. Like with all of the discs in these posts, we are using two keywords for choosing our nominees: popularity and utility. We will choose popular midrange discs that can be utilized by disc golfers of all skill levels.

First, lets take a look at which midrange discs have been the best sellers so far in 2018.

Top sellers of 2018:

  1. Discraft Buzzz
  2. Innova Roc3
  3. Innova Mako3
  4. Innova Roc
  5. Dynamic Discs Emac Truth
  6. Discmania MD3
  7. Hyzerbomb Mortar
  8. Innova Gator
  9. Discraft Comet
  10. Innova Rat

It doesn’t look like there are too many surprises in the sales chart. The Innova Rat was released at the start of 2018, and it looks like it has been able to maintain positive sales numbers throughout the year. It will be interesting to see how this disc performs over the next few years as well.

Now, here are our nominees!

Discraft Buzzz

Far and away the most popular disc in the Discraft lineup, the Buzzz is a staple of the disc golf world. It has been part of the game since 2003. For many years disc golfers had two main choices for midranges, either the Buzzz or the Innova Roc. As the sales numbers show, both of these discs have proven to stand the test of time. The Buzzz offers a smooth, beadless profile that fits comfortably in the hand for all sizes and grips. It offers a very stable flight that can be used by disc golfers at all skill levels.

Discraft Comet

Another disc to show that age doesn’t matter, the Discraft Comet has been a part of the game for over 20 years. The Comet‘s mold is unique with a significant bead and more significant dome that offers a very understable flight with lots of glide. The Comet is great for beginners looking to get some distance out of their midrange, and perfect for more experienced throwers trying to navigate tight fairways.

Dynamic Discs Emac Truth

The Emac Truth is DD’s third effort at crafting a midrange with a “true” straight flight pattern after the disc now named the Verdict was too overstable and the original Truth was just a bit too understable. But the Emac Truth was worth the wait, as it is an excellent midrange disc for all skill levels. It offers a flight that is right in between a Buzzz and a Roc in stability. Faster armspeeds shouldn’t have to worry about turning it over, and newer players who find the Roc fades out more than they’d like, the Emac Truth should be just the right fix.

Innova Gator

The Innova Gator is one of the original “utility” midrange discs. The Gator is designed to fight stiff winds and dive around tight corners on the course. It is a great approach disc for more experienced throwers who can master its very overstable flight. The Gator is not a beginners disc by any means, but it has its purpose on the course.

Dynamic Discs Justice

The Dynamic Discs Justice brought an entirely new meaning to the term, “overstable” when it was released in 2015. Take everything I just said about the Gator and multiply it 2 or 3 times. The Justice is a true “Meathook” designed to hold up to any kind of wind out on the course. Try to turn it over, I dare you. Again, not for beginners, but still a great disc that fulfills a great purpose for those who have learned how to throw it.

Prodigy M4

The Prodigy M4 is a midrange that hasn’t gotten a lot of hype recently in the disc golf world, but that doesn’t mean it should be forgotten. The M4 is a straight flyer that is just a bit more understable than the Buzzz. Of all our nominees, it is one of the most beginner friendly midrange discs. It has a beadless rim design and is offered in a variety of Prodigy’s premium plastic blends.

Innova Mako3

The Innova Mako3 is another very beginner friendly midrange disc. More experienced throwers like to use the Mako3 for longer hyzer-flip shots and is great when you need a midrange to hold straight throughout the flight with very minimal fade.

Discmania MD3

The Discmania MD3 has grown in popularity as Discmania team members like Eagle McMahon have been throwing it all over the course. Probably the most comparable disc to the MD3 from this nominee list would be the Emac Truth. they both hit that sweet spot in stability that is right in between a Buzzz and a Roc.

Hyzerbomb Mortar

The Hyzerbomb Mortar is another utility midrange. It is very overstable, but not quite as much as the Gator. This is because of the only real difference between the two molds, which is that the Mortar is beadless. This makes the Mortar very popular for disc golfers who prefer to forehand their approach shots in the wind, as the beadless design allows for an easier and more consistent forehand grip and release.

Innova Roc

One of the original midranges in the game, the Roc has been flying around disc golf courses for now over 30 years. The Roc is a domey disc that has a comfortable beaded rim. This beaded rim makes the disc a bit more overstable than several of the other midranges on this list, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t beginner friendly. This disc flies straight for a long time and then has a reliable strong fade at the end.

Innova Roc3

Normally we wouldn’t give discs like the Roc and Roc3 their own individual nominations, but the Roc3 has shown that it has its own following that is seperate from its predecessor. They Both have very similar beaded rims, but the Roc3 is a bit flatter, and it is rated to be just a bit faster than the Roc, which allows for a little more distance in the air. Both discs have proven to be staples of the midrange category.

And the 2018 choice for best Midrange Disc Golf Disc is…..

Best Midrange of 2018: Discraft Buzzz

If you have been following these posts, you should know by know that we aren’t picking upsets. The Buzzz is the old standard for midrange discs. It is a pure, straight flyer that disc golfers of every skill level love to use. The old debate of Roc v. Buzzz will never die, but we had to choose the Buzzz because of its friendlier stability for newer players and the comfortable beadless rim that allows for the occasional forehand throw. The Discraft Buzzz is our choice for the best midrange on the market today.

Best Disc Golf Fairway Drivers–Winner

This post comes a week late due to the holiday and all the sales we had going on last week. But we hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your families and that you took advantage of all the deals at Infinite Discs over the weekend! Two weeks ago we announced our nominees for the Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Fairway Drivers. Now it’s the time to announce our winner! But first, let’s review the nominees:

All of these fairway drivers are very popular and can enhance the game of disc golfers of all skill levels. But today we have made our decision for the BEST fairway driver on the market. And the winner is…

THE INFINITE DISCS BEST DISC GOLF DISC: FAIRWAY DRIVER

INNOVA TEEBIRD

It is hard to make a case against the Innova TeeBird. The TeeBird has been the standard of the fairway driver category for years, and it offers a flight that can compliment the game of all skill levels of disc golfers. The TeeBird is available in a large variety of plastic blends and weights, so if you haven’t, check out the TeeBird today.

We will be announcing the nominees for our next category this afternoon, so check back later today!

Best Disc Golf Fairway Drivers

Disc Golf Tunnel Shot

Last week we kicked off our new series of posts naming the best disc golf discs on the market. We chose our pick for the best distance driver, and today we will take a look at the fairway drivers. Like the distance drivers, there are lots of new fairway drivers for players to choose from. Do you just want someone to tell you which one is the best? Well, let’s try to answer that question today.

Before I list our nominees for The Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Fairway Driver, let me break down what we are looking for in a fairway driver today. Like the distance drivers, our keywords for choosing nominees will be popularity and utility. We will select popular fairway drivers that can be utilized by disc golfers of all skill levels. This especially gets interesting for control/fairway drivers, because we see a larger spectrum of stability and uses for different types of control drivers. Just a reminder from our last post as well, we will avoid nominating similar discs from the same brand (think TeeBird and TeeBird3).

So first, lets look at which fairway drivers have been the best sellers in 2018 so far.

Top sellers of 2018:

  1. Innova Firebird
  2. Innova Teebird
  3. Innova Thunderbird
  4. Discmania FD
  5. Innova Valkyrie
  6. Innova Leopard3
  7. Innova Leopard
  8. Infinite Discs Exodus
  9. Innova Teebird3
  10. Innova Roadrunner

Innova has traditionally dominated the best sellers in the distance driver category, but in 2018 they have really made gains in the fairway drivers as well. But what is interesting to know is of the next 10 best sellers, only 2 of them are Innova discs. Nearly all brands have released a competitive selling fairway driver.

But like I said, it takes more than popularity to receive a nomination and be named the best! So here are the nominees:

Latitude 64 Diamond

The Latitude 64 Diamond is considered by many to be the beginner driver.

This fairway driver is very understable and only comes in lighter weights. That combination makes it perfect for younger players or newer players who are still working on their form. Even more experienced players who like to throw at slower speeds have been able to put the Diamond to work for their game.

 

Dynamic Discs Escape

The Escape was the first Fairway Driver made by Dynamic Discs, and it has been a staple of the lineup ever since.

The Escape offers a pretty straight and neutral flight that can be used at all skill levels. The Escape gets a little more distance than some of the other fairway drivers nominated, and it is offered in a variety of DD’s plastic blends.

 

Discmania FD

The Discmania FD has been around for seven years now, but it has really just grown in popularity over the last 2 or 3 years.

Many players consider this the slightly understable cousin of the Innova TeeBird. The FD is straight to understable with a glide rating of 6 that is no joke. The FD is a sneaky far disc with a flight pattern that can accommodate all skill levels.

 

Dynamic Discs Felon

The Dynamic Discs Felon falls in the more overstable side of the fairway driver category.

With a flatter profile and overstable flight, many would consider this disc a primarily forehand or flick disc, but more seasoned players can manage this disc throwing backhand as well. What sets the Felon apart is it isn’t a true “meathook.” This disc, when given the right power, will hold straight before delivering a reliable overstable fade at the end of the flight.

 

Innova Firebird

The Innova Firebird‘s popularity has skyrocketed in recent years due to the Nate Sexton Glow Firebirds.

But even before then, the Firebird was known as a reliable overstable fairway driver perfect for getting around a corner or when you needed a disc to hold up in the wind without turning over. The Firebird along with the Felon are probably the least beginner friendly of our nominees.

 

Innova Leopard/Leopard3

We decided to list the Innova Leopard and Leopard3 together. If we were putting this list together last year, we probably would have just nominated the Leopard. But over the last year the Leopard3 has jumped way up on the sales charts and is becoming more and more mainstream. They are similar discs, with the Leopard3 offering a little more speed and stability. The Leopard is a very popular beginner’s disc, especially in DX plastic where it is inexpensive and offered in lighter weights. But both the Leopard and the Leopard3 have a flight that all throwers can find a use for.

 

Latitude 64 River

The Latitude 64 River has moved down the sales charts a bit over the last year, but it still is a very popular disc that has a unique mold and flight.

The River is slightly bigger than most drivers, but it has a smaller rim and a slight dome. I personally don’t know the science of it, but the River has great glide that allows the disc to stay in the air for what seems like forever. This disc is a long, straight flyer that can accommodate all arm speeds.

 

Innova Roadrunner

The Innova Roadrunner has been around for over 13 years, but it is experiencing a bit of a resurgence.

It has always been a very popular understable disc that is great for beginners. But recently the Roadrunner is growing in popularity as a distance roller disc for more experienced players. That being said, bigger arms will still enjoy this disc for long understable air shots.

 

Innova TeeBird

The Innova TeeBird will turn 20 years old in 2019, and throughout that time it has been an extremely popular disc for players of all skill levels.

It is in that sweet spot in stability where it isn’t too overstable for newer players, but it is overstable enough to handle big power from the pros. The TeeBird has a reliable flight and is available in a large variety of plastic blends and weights.

 

Innova Thunderbird

The Innova Thunderbird is often described as being a faster TeeBird, offering a little more distance. And if you just go by the manufacturers flight ratings, that is exactly right.

The higher speed makes this disc a little less beginner friendly, but is still very popular among all disc golfers. If you have found a shot that the TeeBird just comes up a bit short on, try a Thunderbird and you should be pretty close!

 

MVP Volt

MVP and their Gyro technology disrupted the disc golf world when they first hit the scene.

At first they just offered putters and midranges, but at the end of 2012 they brought the overmold to the drivers with their release of the Volt. The Volt has continued to be one of MVP‘s best selling discs ever since. It is a straight to slightly overstable fairway driver that delivers a consistent flight pattern.

 

We have quite a few more nominees for our fairway drivers than we had distance drivers, but like I mentioned, the fairway driver category covers more types of flights, so we felt that there were more discs that deserved nominations in this category.

Best Fairway Driver of 2018

All of these fairway drivers are very popular and can enhance the game of disc golfers of all skill levels. But today we have made our decision for the BEST fairway driver on the market. And the winner is…

THE INFINITE DISCS BEST DISC GOLF DISC: FAIRWAY DRIVER

INNOVA TEEBIRD

It is hard to make a case against the Innova TeeBird. The TeeBird has been the standard of the fairway driver category for years, and it offers a flight that can compliment the game of all skill levels of disc golfers. The TeeBird is available in a large variety of plastic blends and weights, so if you haven’t, check out the TeeBird today.

The time has come to announce our first winner in our new series of awards, The Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc. Last week, we announced the nominees for The Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Distance Driver. Let’s review the nominees:

All of these discs are fantastic distance drivers that have established themselves as great discs that have added distance and accuracy to players of all skill levels. But (at least for the purpose of these blog posts :)) there can only be one disc named THE BEST. And the winner is:

THE INFINITE DISCS BEST DISC GOLF DISC: DISTANCE DRIVER

INNOVA DESTROYER

No upsets here. The Innova Destroyer was a game changer when it was first released over 10 years ago, and it continues to be a force in the disc golf community. It is available in nearly all plastics and weights, so if you haven’t given this disc a shot, you should be able to find a Destroyer that will fit for your game.

Stay tuned, as we will be announcing the nominees for our next category later today!
