Christmas Ideas for Disc Golfers

Christmas is just around the corner. Golf discs make great, affordable, Christmas presents. Disc golfers love trying different discs and gadgets that make their disc golf experience more enjoyable.

Here are a few ideas to help the non-disc golfer choose a winning gift for the avid disc golfer.

New Disc Golf Discs

Disc golfers love trying new discs. But with hundreds of different options to choose from, how do you know which Frisbee to choose? Here are a few of the hottest selling new releases of 2016.

Distance Bombers

Newer technology and disc mold innovations continue to make disc golf technology better. There have been plenty of new discs released this year that flat out fly farther than discs of the past. Here are a few to consider.

Discmania DDX – The Discmania DDX has been one of the most hyped up drivers ever. This disc is very similar to the Innova Destroyer which is the most popular distance driver currently on the market.

Westside Destiny – Every disc golfer wants more driving distance. The Westside Destiny is ultra fast and glides forever. There is a good chance your loved one will set a new distance record with the Destiny, and they will thank you every day because it was you who so thoughtfully bought one for them.

MVP Catalyst – The Catalyst uses multi weighted Gyro technology to produce a unique disc flight. The most popular of these Gyro distance bombers released this year is the MVP Catalyst.

Discraft Thrasher – Unlike many of the other major brands, Discraft doesn’t release a lot of new molds, but when they do, they are usually excellent. The Thrasher fits that mold. This is another distance bomber that is the perfect stability for max distance for the Intermediate Disc Golfer.

Great Discs for New Disc Golfers

Until a player develops adequate form, snap, and arm speed, distance drivers like those listed above won’t necessarily provide more distance, and will likely provide more frustration. For a newer player, consider one of these new discs.

DGA SailThe DGA Sail is effortlessly controllable. This disc drives very well and stays incredibly straight for a frisbee golf driver.

Vibram Onyx – For new disc golfers the Onyx has been described as a game changer. This disc is very easy to control and gets newer disc golfers more distance than just about any other disc.

Collectible Discs

In the disc golf world, discs aren’t only thrown, but they are also used as wall hangers for their artistic beauty. Limited disc runs are manufactured with unique designs and stamps and many become valuable collectors items. If you’re looking for a collector discs, here are some options to consider:

DSC06043Discraft Buzzz GT – The Buzzz is the most popular midrange disc on the market. The Bangar Groove Top (GT) is one of Discrafts most popular putt and approach discs.

As the official vendor of the 2016 Ledgestone Insurance Open, we were able to have a limited run of 500 of Groove Top Buzzes made. You might love the way the groove top feels, but if not there is no doubt that this disc is a thing of beauty.

Multiple PuttersIMG_4953_2

Every disc golfer I have ever met wants to improve their putting game. Improved putting comes through practice, and the easiest way to practice is to have multiple putters of the same plastic and weight. Figure out what putter your disc golfer is using, and buy them 6-10 more.

Disc Golf Accessories

Golden-RetrieverDisc Retrievers

If your disc golfer regularly plays courses with water hazards, the Golden Retriever will help him rescue his most favorite discs. This ingenious device makes it easy to fish discs out of the water. It’s small, light weight, and effective.

For fishing out of streams and running bodies of water, the Disc Gator is the retrieving device of choice. The easy collapsing tent pole extends about 12 feet making it quick and easy to get your disc out of water or tall trees.

Disc Golf Bags

If your disc golfer owns multiple discs, but doesn’t carry a bag, or uses something that wasn’t designed for disc golf, a small bag will make a great gift. The Infinite Discs starter bag offers the best value on the market and has a large variety of colors to choose from.

For the disc golfer who has a small bag, but is now really getting into the sport (acquiring lots of discs, playing in organized events etc.), a larger bag ($30 – $80) or disc golf backpack ($70-$220) is an ideal Christmas gift. From a disc golfers perspective, there is something very satisfying about being able to carry enough discs to satisfy any shot you might face.

The hottest trend for the serious tournament playing disc golfer right now is a disc golf cart.  These things aren’t cheap, but there is no better way to show your disc golfer you really care about them than by gifting them a cart that will allow them to carry around 30+ discs without breaking their back.

For a tournament playing disc golfer, the cart allows disc golfers to bring everything they need for a serious round of disc golf including a sweatshirt, jacket, umbrella, disc retrievers, backup discs, backups of the backups, large water bottles, and best of all it provides a comfortable seat anywhere on the course.

Disc Golf Basket

For that extra special someone, a portable disc golf basket is a great gift that will really get them excited. Portable baskets are ideal to help improve putting, and for setting up temporary disc golf courses. My recommended portable disc golf basket is the DGA Mach Lite.

2015 Christmas Disc Golf Guide

With Christmas just a couple weeks away, it’s a great time to think about the gifts for the disc golfer in your life. Whether it’s your sweet heart, a buddy, the guy who runs your club, or a blogger for Infinite Discs 🙂 , sometimes it’s tough to decide on the best gift to give to that special person. After all, disc golfers like specific discs and getting the right model, plastic, and weight for them can be a tough choice. Fear not! We’ve compiled a list of gifts that most disc golfers would enjoy and appreciate.

To the casual observer, the only thing a person would need to play disc golf is a few discs. However, to a disc golfer there are tons of additional items that make the game a little better.

– For example, how about a copy of the inFlight guide? If you’ve ever wondered the flight numbers for a certain disc, and how it compares to your favorite disc, the inFlight guide is for you. A handy reference full of universal flight ratings and flight charts, the guide will help you know the flight numbers for nearly every disc available.

– Do you know a disc golfer who plays in the rain or the sweltering heat? Chances are, they could use a Dirt Bag. The Dirt Bag helps disc golfer’s deal with moisture, humidity, and sweaty hands to achieve a better grip on their disc.

Innova Disc golf Calendar– Everybody needs a calendar. But, instead of pictures of puppies, cars, or beautiful models, why not get your disc golfer a disc golf calendar?! Featuring scenic shots from courses around the globe, the disc golf calendar is something every golfer would love.

– Disc golfers of any skill level would benefit from the advice given in the book, Zen and the Art of Disc Golf. This book gives practical advice for building a foundation for becoming a better disc golfer. It is a book BY a disc golfer, FOR disc golfers.

Bags: Okay, certainly every serious disc golfer already has a bag. But what about those days when they just want to carry a couple discs? Having a smaller bag around for those ‘putt and approach’ or tester rounds will make it easier to lug just a few discs around the course, along with some water or a snack. Is the special person in your life cramming all of their discs in an over-stuffed small bag? It might be a good time for them to move up to a backpack style bag. Plus, it gives them an excuse to get more discs to fill the new bag! One especially hot disc golf bag is the new Innova Heropack.

Stools (seats): If your disc golfer likes tournaments or plays in a league, chances are they would like to take a break while waiting at a tee box. A stool or seat is the perfect thing to allow golfers to take a break from the action and save precious energy for the game.

Golden RetrieverMisc: There are a variety of items that every disc golfer should have. A retriever, for example, has saved many a golfer from wading out into a pond or river to retrieve an errant disc. A good towel is invaluable for removing moisture due to rain, dew, or bodies of water. They also come in handy for cleaning mud from discs or for drying hands. If you really want to score points with the disc golfer in your life, give them a portable basket for Christmas! Every golfer wants to improve their putting, and a portable basket allows them to practice at home.

Legacy Grinch DiscDiscs: For the more adventurous gift giver, new release discs are a fun gift to give. Who doesn’t love to try the newest plastic or rubber to hit stores?

Christmas Edition Discs: For the holiday’s you can even purchase special stamped Christmas discs including the: Legacy Rampage, Hunter, Innova Leopard3, Thunderbird, Destroyer, Spider and MVP AMP (available December 14th).

For an especially inexpensive gift, Innova also has the OrnaMini. A tiny disc that serves as both a Christmas Tree Ornament and a mini-marker.

Infinite TShirtApparel: Who doesn’t love sporting a shirt from Infinite Discs? Choose from comfortable cotton or moisture wicking shirts in a variety of colors, all with the Infinite Discs name and logo.

 

Gift Cards: Okay, let’s face it, some of us either don’t do well selecting gifts for others, or, we are searching for a gift for a very picky person. The safe bet is a simply a gift card from Infinite Discs. It’s the sure-fire way to know that the person will love what they get!
