Top 100 Discs – First Half of 2019

Top 100 Discs


Welcome to another statistics blog! These are some of my favorite blogs to write and look at, since we can see some fun data about the sport we’ve grown to love! Today we’re going to be looking at some of the top discs, specifically the Top 100 Discs from the first half of 2019.

Disclaimer – This data is all from InfiniteDiscs.com, the biggest online retailer. This data is from discs sold this year- hundreds of orders shipped per day to all across the country and world.

Discraft vs Innova

First off, we notice that the Destroyer is still clenching the #1 spot, even after McBeth’s switch to Discraft. The Zeus and Luna, however are making a run for the top. They come in at 4th and 5th place respectively. The Anax was released shortly after the first half of the year, so it didn’t quite make it to the chart.

Innova appears more than 30 times on the chart, while Discraft is just under 20. Last year, this was definitely a different story; Discraft has grown a lot this year.


Infinite Discs

In the second year of having our own line of discs (produced by Innova), we have 5 discs on the chart. One of them, the Pharaoh, makes the #9 spot. The Pharaoh has definitely been our hottest mold. This is a little biased, however, because currently the only place to get our line up is from our own website. We will wholesale our own line later this year.


Discmania & MVP

Discmania & MVP both have nine entries on this list. These are two awesome disc golf companies that have been exploding in popularity recently! Axiom has the Envy at #11, and Discmania has the P2 at #3 and the FD at #13.


Honorable Mentions

The Pig snags the #46 spot, largely due to Ricky Wysocki putting in his new Innova bag this year. People have started to take notice of his silky smooth pig throws!

The Orc has the #33 spot, due to an influx of some really cool Pre-Flight number Orcs that we’ve come across. People say these are the best of the Orcs, so check them out!

Kastaplast has two entries on the top 100, the Reko (#60) and the Berg (#63). Kastaplast has been putting out some really unique feeling plastic and people are loving them! The Berg and Reko are some awesome putt & approach discs worth looking into.

The MINT Discs Alpha barely snuck onto the chart at the #98 spot. MINT Discs is an up and coming company with two very good molds, the Alpha and the Bobcat. MINT has it’s fan club set in stone, with popularity growing!


Let’s Discuss!

  • Let us know how many discs you throw from the top 100!
  • Next, we’ll do a top 100 for the entire year of 2019. Which discs do you think will make the chart? The Anax?
  • Which brands do you think will grow more this year and next?
  • Which discs deserve to be in the top 100?

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – JULY 23RD 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 23rd, 2019

#1 – ESP ZEUS
#2 – ESP ANAX
#3 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#4 – Metallic Opto Trident
#5 – Star DESTROYER
#6 – D-Line P2
#7 – Star WRAITH
#8 – 400 MX-3
#9 – Neo METHOD
#10 – DX AVIAR
#11 – Star SONIC
#12 – Champion Colored Glow FIREBIRD
#13 – XT NOVA
#14 – Active Baseline TIGER WARRIOR
#15 – DX AVIAR CLASSIC
#16 – Champion MAKO3
#17 – R-Pro PIG
#18 – Champion FIREBIRD
#19 – Star VALKYRIE
#20 – K1 FALK

Notice, we’ve got a new look to the Top 20 Tuesday chart now. The lines on the graph will be colored, based on the brand. That way you can see which colors are standing out each week and where brands are jumping in.

The top three lines are blue, ruled by Discraft with the #1 Zeus, #2 Anax, and #3 Luna. Those were the only three spots taken by Discraft this week as Innova (represented in red) flooded the Top 20 with a bunch of old favorites, taking 11 of the top 20 positions. That is likely due to the ongoing Innova restock we’ve got going here at Infinite Discs (it takes days to add an Innova shipment lately, since they come on pallets).

The four spot is taken by the Metallic Opto Trident, which we have only added to our online store quietly, in small bursts, but they keep getting snapped up. We also see three entries from Discmania, including the usual P2, and the popular new Method midrange, and the Tiger Warrior putter. The Kastaplast FALK sneaked into the #20 spot this week.

–> 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 #7 spot was taken by the Star Wraith this week. Colin guessed it first, with a later guess by Matt who said “because why not?” Well sure, why not? But sorry Matt, Colin guessed it first this time, so he takes the prize.

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!

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!

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – MAY 21st 2019

Infinite Discs is happy to present another Top 20 Tuesday chart, looking back at the discs that sold the most during the last week. 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.

Here we go…

Top Twenty Tuesday for May 21st, 2019

#1 – Swirly S-Blend PHARAOH
#2 – Cosmic Neutron LIFT
#3 – ESP KONG
#4 – Star DESTROYER
#5 – Neutron PILOT
#6 – Cosmic Neutron PILOT
#7 – Neutron LIFT
#8 – X-Blend SCARAB
#9 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#10 – D-Line P2
#11 – Signature Metal Flake Glow EMPEROR
#12 – Pro PIG
#13 –Sublime BOBCAT
#14 – Neo INSTINCT
#15 – Signature Swirly S-Blend PHARAOH
#16 – Metal Flake Glow C-Blend SPHINX
#17 – Metal Flake Glow C-Blend PHAROAH
#18 – Apex BOBCAT
#19 – Elite Z BUZZZ
#20 – Metal Flake Glow C-Blend EMPEROR

There was a big shake-up in the top twenty chart for the last week. The new releases by Streamline, Infinite Discs, and Mint Discs really blasted the predictability out of the lineup. The new run of Swirly S-Blend PHARAOH drivers pole-vaulted that disc to the #1 spot, with the Jessica Weese signature edition hitting at #15. The new LIFT driver by Streamline took the #2 spot, pushing the KONG to #3 and the Star DESTROYER to #4. The Pilot by Streamline also took two spots in two different plastics at #5 and #6. The Bobcat by Mint Discs took two spots in two different plastics as well. The Garrett Gurthie signature edition of the Metal Flake Glow C-Blend EMPEROR hit the chart at #11 right after his impressive win at the Masters Cup on the weekend. Great job Garrett!

Strangely absent from the list are any of the Tour ESP series discs by Discraft. They did sell well, but were available in smaller quantities at Infinite Discs and will be restocked soon (sorry about that). That could explain how they didn’t keep up with some of those other new releases.

Here is how the different brands lined up this week when counting the number of times that they appeared in the chart:

WINNER – The #2 spot this week went to the Cosmic Neutron LIFT which was the new Streamline Discs driver. In case you’re unfamiliar, Streamline is a single-mold brand manufactured by MVP, so it gets a lot of love from the MVP / Axiom throwers and collectors. There were two people who guessed the LIFT. One of them, Daniel, included the plastic type and got it right with Cosmic Neutron. The first person to guess LIFT, Clint, failed to mention the plastic type. We’ll give them both the win this time, but remember to guess plastic type as well in the future.

PS. We did see the DD3 mentioned once, but that comes out tomorrow (Wednesday, May 22nd). Valiant attempt though.

Top Twenty Tuesday for May 14th, 2019

#1 – ESP KONG
#2 – Star DESTROYER
#3 – Swirly Star THUNDERBIRD
#4 – Neo INSTINCT
#5 – C-Blend SCEPTER
#6 – D-Line P2
#7 – Elite Z BUZZZ
#8 – 400 H4 V2
#9 – Discraft Special Blend LUNA
#10 – Fuzion RAIDER

#17 – Metal Flake Glow C-Blend EMPEROR
#18 – Champion Colored Glow FIREBIRD
#19 – DX AVIAR
#20 – S-Line DDX

The KONG by Discraft reclaimed the top spot this week with the Star DESTROYER by Innova climbing back up to a close 2nd after spending a little time in lower positions. The Swirly Star THUNDERBIRD took a strong jump to #3 as the Jeremy Koling signature edition came in stock last week. The Neo INSTINCT by Discmania still holds strong as a new release in the #4 spot with the new SCEPTER by Infinite Discs coming in 5th.

Another new releases that hit the chart is the H4 V2 from Prodigy. The Infinite Discs brand had a generally strong showing with a restock of Swirly S-Blend Pharaoh’s kicking off interest again and the Metal Flake Glow C-Blend Emperors charting with the limited edition stamp as well as in X-Outs for a cheaper way to try the disc.  Here is a chart showing the number of times different brands appeared in the top 20 this week.

WINNER – The #7 spot this week went to the Elite Z Buzzz, which was a little bit strange considering that the ESP Buzzz has had all of the attention lately. But with a restock of Elite Z Buzzz discs at Infintie Discs, that may have fueled the buys. That somewhat random appearance didn’t get any guesses this week. But there were some excellent, close guesses. Keep trying!

The chart this week had a nice battle for the top with the new Neo INSTINCT by Discmania taking the #1 spot for its release week, and the Metal Flake Glow C-Blend EMPEROR by Infinite Discs taking the 2nd spot on its new release week. The KONG feel to 3rd place, but is hanging out regularly around the top, with the new FLARE by Streamline discs takes the #4 spot, still selling well with a new limited edition stamp. The new Fuzion RAIDER by Dynamic Discs is still cruising strong at the #6 spot, beating out the long-time top-dweller, the Star DESTROYER.
