TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – DECEMBER 11TH 2018

Infinite Discs is happy to present the weekly blog post called TOP TWENTY TUESDAY where we let you know about the short-term sales trends for discs. We’ll show the sales figures from the previous Tuesday through the most recent Monday. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle spots. It can be fun to see which discs keep up the pace. These will also be broken down by plastic types, so the same model can show up in multiple plastics.

Here we go…

Top Twenty Tuesday for DECEMBER 11th, 2018

#1 – P-Line Soft P2
#2 – Star DESTROYER
#3 – D-Line P2
#4 – Origio Burst MAIDEN
#5 – Star TEEBIRD3
#6 – BT Hard Burst Moonshine MAIDEN
#7 – P-Line P2
#8 – Metal Flake Glow C-Blend PHARAOH 
#9 – Full Foil Super Color BUZZZ
#10 – Fission TESLA
#11 – ESP UNDERTAKER
#12 – Titanium UNDERTAKER
#13 – Elite Z BUZZZ
#14 – Neutron DEFLECTOR
#15 – C-Line Luster FD
#16 – DX AVIAR
#17 – Elite Z ZONE
#18 – XT Mix NOVA
#19 – Star TEEBIRD
#20 – Sirius SCORPIUS

The Star Destroyer dropped to 2nd place for the first time in a while with the P-Line Soft P2 taking its place at #1.  The P2 holds three spots in this week’s chart, and that seems pretty typical as the P2 putter by Discmania has been the hottest selling putter all year at Infinite Discs. The Maiden by Westside is holding strong with the #4 and #6 spots this week– an exceptionally straight-flying, flat-topped, low profile putter.  The Metal Flake Glow C-Blend Pharaoh is still selling strong since its release before Thanksgiving.  One of the biggest movers in the charts this last week has been DISCRAFT in general, with the BUZZZ taking two spots (Full Foil Super Color sparked again with the Star Wars releases) and the Undertaker driver taking two spots, and the Zone taking a spot. That is 5 spots for Discraft week!  Also, the Sirius Scorpius by Millennium entered the chart on word that a Gregg Barsby signature edition is coming.

WINNER? – The guessing contest for this week’s chart was for the #5 position, and it looks like we didn’t get a winner. There were some excellent guesses for discs that ended up all over the chart, but the closest to the #5 Teebird3 was somebody guessing the Star Teebird (very close, but not quite).

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – DECEMBER 4TH 2018

Infinite Discs is happy to present the weekly blog post called TOP TWENTY TUESDAY where we let you know about the short-term sales trends for discs. We’ll show the sales figures from the previous Tuesday through the most recent Monday.

 

New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle spots. It can be fun to see which discs keep up the pace. These will also be broken down by plastic types, so the same model can show up in multiple plastics.

 

THIS REPORT INCLUDES THE SALES FROM BLACK FRIDAY SALES – TWO WEEKS OF DISC SALES.  Here we go…
The chart covering the last two weeks of sales at Infinite Discs is HIGHLY influenced by Black Friday deals that carried through an entire week of sales and special disc releases. The Star Destroyer held the number one spot with several special edition stamps on black Destroyers released on Black Friday. The 2nd place spot goes to the Metal Flake Glow C-Blend Pharaoh which really got a lot of love with the cool combination of colored glow and metal flake in the plastic blend, plus the XXL stamp designed by Thought Space Athletics. In a strong 3rd place showing was the limited run of BT Hard Burst Moonshine (glow) MAIDEN putters– a run that was made especially for Infinite Discs. The original Origio Burst Maiden also had a great showing at #7, showing that this latest putter from Westside disc has been a big attention-grabber since it was featured in the 2018 Trilogy Challenge tournaments.

 

Also with big showings due to special editions, the C-Line Luster FD and Glow C-Line P2 discs from Discmania were a big hit, as were the special run of Swirly ESP Flash discs– an older Discraft mold that many players have been missing since it was discontinued. The Stego by Reptilian Disc Gold and the full-color Twin Swords by Yikun made strong showings for smaller brands. Infinite Discs also saw the new release of the C-Blend RA with the XXL stamp his #8 and the Vision C-Blend (full color) SLAB hit the number #11 spot with its dramatic stamp image which was placed to leave a grip edge around the outside top of the flight plate.

 

–> Each week we’ll invite you to leave a prediction for a certain chart position on next week’s TOP TWENTY TUESDAY report. The first three people to predict that chart position correctly in the comments will win a $15 gift card for the Infinite Discs website.

 

WINNER! – We didn’t get a lot of guesses for this week’s #2 position, but we do have a winner. Garrett Colwell declared “Metal flake pharaoh all the way up!” and that is close enough to “Metal Flake Glow C-Blend Pharaoh” that we’re handing him the win. Congratulations Garrett!

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – NOVEMBER 20TH 2018

Infinite Discs is happy to present the weekly blog post called TOP TWENTY TUESDAY where we let you know about the short-term sales trends for discs. We’ll show the sales figures from the previous Tuesday through the most recent Monday.

Top Twenty Tuesday for NOVEMBER 20th, 2018

#7 – D-Line P2
#13 – Star TEEBIRD
#14 – Star AVIARX3
#20 – DX BIRDIE
This week had a lot of shaking up, which is likely due to slower sales in general as disc buyers decompress and wait for the big Black Friday sales to hit. The Star Destroyer kept a strong lead, but with the newly released I-Blend Pharaoh chasing for a strong 2nd position. Then, out of the nowhere, the Classic Blend Burst Warden jumped to number three. The Warden is consistently a good seller, but we haven’t seen it in the charts yet, so the jump to number three was impressive. The Proton Atom got a bump in sales due to the limited edition release that came out last week. The Pharaoh Pharaoh Signature edition was strong as it was also on sale (Garrett Gurthie edition). Another interesting seller was the X Soft Glo Roach, which may have got a little bump from rumors that a Roach was found on a course with Paul McBeth’s signature on it. Also, what is the DX Birdie doing at number twenty?

We had no winners again this week, since the Warden jumped from nowhere into the #3 spot. We thought the number three spot would be an easier guess, but alas, we were also surprised.
GIFT CARD PREDICTION FOR NEXT WEEK:  There will be NO CHART for next Tuesday, since sales will be influenced greatly by Black Friday week-long deals. We’ll rejoin Top 20 Tuesday the next week after that. The guess for two weeks from now is for the #2 spot, and it will cover a two-week period from now through December 3rd. So, places your guesses for that #2 spot in two weeks.

Best Mid-Range Discs – Sales Comparison

We’re big fans of data here at Infinite Discs. We enjoy looking at sales trends and comparing what is moving in the disc golf market. One of the best ways to evaluate which discs are most loved by players is to look at which discs sell the most, because honestly, people purchase discs that they use and love. Sometimes the sales figures get a bump from special editions or new releases. But as the sales figures are measured over the long-term, we can see which discs enjoy momentary spikes, and which ones are always near the top.

Keep in mind that these sales figures are from Infinite Discs, and as one of the largest online disc retailers, we feel that they reflect the tastes of the most avid disc golfers. But they do not represent the entire market. If a brand has their own retail store, it is likely that they draw some of those avid fans directly to their own store and that would have some effect on our totals. We also don’t know about sales trends at big box stores which cater to casual or new players.

Consistently On the Charts

Discraft BUZZZ

Innova ROC3

Innova MAKO3

Innova ROC

Dynamic Discs EMAC TRUTH

Discmania MD3

The Buzzz is always riding at or near the top position when it comes to sales, with the Roc3 and Mako3 coming close behind. Other consistently charting mid-range discs are the Roc, the Emac Truth, and the MD3.  There are other popular mid-range discs that sell more in waves, depending on special editions, pro support stamps, etc.

Breaking Down the Sales in 6-Month Increments

We’re going to take a look at four charts, each representing a different period. We’ll start with the most recent and go backward to see which mid-range discs have had momentary spikes, and which ones have held strong for the long term.

This more recent data (red chart) shows that the Discraft Buzzz has a strong lead as the number one, best-selling mid-range disc.  The Roc3 and Mako3 by Innova are also consistent contenders.  The MVP Deflector has a strong showing on this chart because it was a new release during this 6-month sales period, and it really was the overstable mid-range that MVP fans had been waiting for. The Anubis by Infinite Discs was also a new release during this period, so it made a strong showing in the 10th position.

Going back six months to late 2017 and early 2018 (blue chart), we can see the that top three were strong in that period as well. The Buzzz, Roc3, and Mako3 sold well, with the HyzerBomb Mortar coming in a strong 4th as it had a much anticipated restock run and fans were able to get their hands on it again. The Emac Truth holds a steady position in the middle of the pack as it did in the more recent chart. The Innova Rat came out as a new release and jumped in at the #9 spot.

Now let’s go back a full year to summer and fall of 2017 (green chart) and we can see that the Roc3 had outsold the Buzzz during that period. Again, the Emac Truth was holding strongly in the middle of the pack.  The Discraft Comet made a good showing. The Innova Stingray had a good showing, primarily as a popular pro signature disc that year, and the Innova RocX3 was a new disc that made a good splash.

Let’s go all the way back to late 2016 and early 2017 (orange chart). The Buzzz was still the top-seller. We can tell by the longer term track record that the Buzzz, Roc3, Mako3, and Roc have always been handing on to the top spots. The MD3 and MD4 by Discmania have popped in a couple of times. The Emac Truth has been hanging out in the middle the entire time. It is also interesting to see that two years ago, the Verdict, Justice, and Truth by Dynamic Discs joined the Emac Truth to take four spots out of the top 10, with Latitude 64 making a showing with the Compass.

Top Twenty Tuesday for NOVEMBER 6th, 2018

#3 – XT Mix NOVA
#5 – DX AVIAR
#6 – D-Line P2
#8 – Eclipse ENVY
#9 – P-Line P2
#11 – Star SHRYKE
#12 – Fission VOLT
#16 – GStar KRAIT
This week’s chart looks very, very odd compared to the last few weeks. The announcement by Innova that Paul McBeth would be leaving the brand had a huge impact on sales of discs that have a Paul McBeth signature. The Star Destroyer absolutely demolished all of the competition, winning the #1 spot several times over. Also in the top 20, we can see the McPro Aviar, the XT Nova, the Champion Roc3, the Champion Thunderbird, and the GStar Krait, all of which have Paul McBeth signatures.
Also making the first appearance in the Top Twenty Tuesday charts are two X-Out discs– the Star X-Out Destroyer, and the I-Blend X-Out Sphinx.  We do sell a lot of X-Outs and Misprints here at Infinite Discs, so is interesting to see a couple of those spike onto the chart. We also saw a couple of MVP discs hit the chart this week, due to the released of the Jalapeno Assassin stamp on a bunch of MVP and Axiom discs models.
The Exodus also hit the chart in both S-Blend and I-Blend since it is on sale this week. Watch for another model from Infinite Discs to go on sale at the end of this week.

Our winners for this week, guessing that the #7 spot would be the Champion Roc3, are Rick Meyer and Trevor Andrews. Good job guys!

Top Twenty Tuesday for OCTOBER 30th, 2018

#5 – Star ORC
#7 – D-Line P2
#8 – P-Line P2
#14 – Eclipse ENVY
#15 – DX LEOPARD
#16 – Star SHRYKE
#17 – Star WRAITH
#18 – DX AVIAR
There was a lot of shuffling around this week. The Eclipse Envy dropped from a run-away 1st-place spot last week to #14 this week, showing how a new release (particularly with a limited edition) can spike in its first week. Plus, our supply diminished, which undoubtedly slowed sales. Taking the #1 spot this week was the new Signature Glow C-Line MD4 that came out during the last week supporting Simon Lizotte. The Star Destroyer keeps a hold near the top, and coming in third was the Galactic McPro Aviar because of the USDGC Champion commemorative edition. Oddly, the Nova and Orc both spiked in sales this last week, pushing ahead of the very popular P2 putters that dropped in three different plastics to spots 7, 8, and 9.  Also odd this last week was the movement of the Pro Aviar-X (JK mold) upward from nowhere to even pass the DX Aviar, which is a top-selling standard.  Also entering the chart for the first time is the new Marksman by HyzerBomb.

Surprisingly, there were no winners from the guessing for the last week, as the Mako3 slid into the #12 spot out. It hadn’t been on a chart yet, so that was a bit unexpected. Feel free to guess for the next chart.

#5 – P-Line P2
#6 – D-Line P2
#8 – DX AVIAR
#15 – Star SHRYKE
#16 – Star SAVANT
#18 – Star EAGLE
The Eclipse ENVY by Axiom jumped to the top of the chart this last week, and not just by a little. That was a hot new release with a limited edition that fueled the buying frenzy. The Tournament HARP also jumped to the top with a Halloween edition that really got some positive attention. The Deputy and Judge also came into the top twenty with strong moves with the boost of some Halloween stamps. The new Savant by Innova hit the chart with the Luster plastic, which features the “protostar” stamp, and the Star edition which is the first stock stamped edition. The P2 held onto four different spots in the top twenty, which is some serious staying power.

#5 – P-Line P2
#6 – DX AVIAR
#10 – D-Line P2
#12 – Star SHRYKE
#16 – Star MAKO3
#18 – Lucid PATROL
#20 – Star TEEBIRD
There are a couple of interesting things on this week’s chart when compared to last weeks chart (CLICK HERE for last week’s chart). Discmania had two new releases which shot straight to the top with the Swirly S-Line DD and the Glow D-Line P2 (Halloween Edition). New releases will usually shake up the weekly chart, since they get a boost in sales just by virtue of being new. Thus, the Star Destroyer and regular P-Line P2 dropped to those new releases. Also, we got two of the Trilogy Challenge discs in stock this last week, and the Origio Burst Maiden putter sold out almost the same day it was added to our website. The Lucid Patrol is also selling well as one of those Trilogy Challenge discs and made it onto the chart. Full Foil Super Color Buzzz discs are continuing to get spikes in sales from time to time as people collect the different stamp designs.
