Watch for More “Infinite Bomber” Stamped Discs

Infinite Discs recently started adding some unique inventory to our online store. For those players who like to pull discs out of their bag that stand out from the discs in other player’s bags, we started making some special stamped discs which are only available at Infinite Discs. The first of these special stamps is one that we call the “Infinite Bomber”.  The first discs we stocked with the Infinite Bomber stamp were a batch of Wizard putters from Gateway, which had the stamp presented in full size on the discs. We then brought in a batch of discs from Innova including popular disc molds like Destroyers, Valkyries, Firebirds, Teebirds, Aviars, Novas, Rocs, Wraiths, and more. They sold quickly!

IMG_-d190cbTo finish up the month of August, we brought in a fresh batch of discs with Infinite Bomber stamps from Dynamic Discs, Latitude 64, and Westside. They include popular molds like Rivers, Judges, Justices, Mauls, Defenders, Destinies, Harps, Diamonds, Trespasses, Pures, and more.  Once again, they are selling quickly as players find their favorite discs in their favorite colors with the fun stamp.

Now, as we head into the conclusion of the 2016 summer season and into autumn, more Infinite Bomber stamps are on the way. You’ll soon see a selection of popular discs from Discmania showing up on the Infinite Discs website. A few other brands will follow. Here is how you can search to see which discs are available with the Infinite Bomber stamp at any given moment.

First go to the Infinite Discs store website. Then follow these steps:

1 – Click on the “Advanced Disc Search” button on the top of our website, or click here.
2 – Check-mark the box that says “Extras” in the search window.
3 – Scroll down until you see “Infinite Discs Stamp” and check-mark that box.
4 – Click the “View Individual Discs” box and scroll through the discs and add what you want to your cart! This will show you all the disc colors, weights, etc. with the stamp.

OK, now that we’ve talked about the Infinite Bomber stamp, maybe you think there is another little design out there that is more your style and that makes the statement that you want to make? Well, we have good news for you. These stamps will be limited editions! We won’t keep any single stamp going indefinitely. If you like the Infinite Bomber, then get them while you can. Another exclusive Infinite Discs stamp is coming in a few weeks, and we call it the “Infinite Illuminati”.

If you are especially fond of exclusive stamps on great discs and want a surprise each month, then be sure to join the Infinite Discs VIP Club which is a disc-of-the-month subscription program, presenting limited edition, one-time runs of premium discs with special stamps. Each month you’ll get a surprise in your mailbox with a new disc to throw (or to collect and hang on your wall). READ HERE about the Infinite Discs VIP Club.

 

Infinite Discs Presents RPM Discs from New Zealand

Here at Infinite Discs, we’re always excited to discover new disc makers, especially when they are quality companies from outside the USA. Of course, we love the home-grown American companies too, but there is something a little bit exotic about importing some really cool discs from across the ocean.

20160825_184153In August we were able to bring in our first batch of discs from RPM Discs, a great disc golf company from New Zealand. At first inspection, the discs looked absolutely beautiful right out of the box, with a quality appearance to the plastic that is instantly eye-catching, embellished with some great, Maori flavored stamps. There was a nice mix of attractive, metallic plastics, and softer, pastel plastics. They all felt great, with the perfect mix of durability and “grippy” touch. Let’s take a look at the three plastic types present by RPM Discs.

Strata plastic is the “base plastic” blend. It is the least expensive and the softest. It still doesn’t feel “cheap” as it has a comfortable feel and has a little shine to it. It doesn’t seem as destructible as some of the soft plastics out there. Of course, the TUI putter would be the disc that most players would want in base plastic, since putters are most often sold in softer plastic types.

There are two premium plastic types, and both are priced the same. The difference is mostly in the appearance, with the Cosmic Plastic being more translucent (see-through) and the Atomic Plastic being more creamy and opaque. You could think of Cosmic as being similar to Champion, Opto, VIP, or Elite Z. The Atomic could be compared more to Gold Line, Tournament, Star, or Titanium.  However, I would emphasize that the actual feel of the plastic is not very different between the two. At first touch, they seem interchangeable when it comes to the feel of the plastic. It’s more the appearance that makes the difference.

RPM Discs has some very nice plastics, and you will by no means feel cheated when paying for either a base or premium plastic because you know when you grip it that you’ve purchased a solid, quality product.

Next, let’s take a look at the discs that make up the introductory core of the RPM Discs operation.

First of all, the putter is called the TUI and it has a unique profile which feels more like a mid-range disc when you first pick it up.  The profile is pretty low, meaning that the inside pocket is not deep and the rim edges are not tall. In that way, it almost feels more like a driving putter, and in quick field tests, we found that it can actually fly well when thrown with a little steam, especially for anhyzer turns. It flies straight for close-range shots, which is what you’d want in a putter. It has a bead on the rim edge, so the closest comparison would probably be to a beaded version of a Dart.

Next up, there is the PIWAKAWAKA (sorry, no pronunciation guide– just go with your heart). It is a mid-range disc that flies as straight as an arrow. It can even take some heat and not flip over too dramatically. It is not quite as chunky as the extremely popular Buzzz, but the flight is similar. The rim is a bit more dainty than some of the mid-range discs out there, which can make it more comfortable for smaller hands. It is certainly a finesse disc, designed for getting your disc predictably from point A to point B when you don’t have to worry about a winding path. All in all, it is a solid mid-range disc and won’t disappoint when it comes to short-range fairway needs.

Of course, every disc producer needs a beginner-friendly, easy-to-throw fairway driver, and that is where the TANIWHA comes into play. It’s still rated as a speed 10, which lands it more into the “distance driver” category for most players, but it is pitched as the “control driver” of the bunch. It would be comparable to a Valkyrie as far as beginner-friendly drivers go. It is rated as 10, 5, -2, 2.

Then there is the bomber driver for the more powerful arms, and that is the KAHU.  The Kahu is an overstable, speed 13 distance driver. It is RPM’s equivalent of the Innova Destroyer, or the Discmania DDx, or the Discraft Force, or the Legacy Outlaw. Break out the big guns when you grab this disc and let it fly. It has a low profile and a relatively sharp edge, so it slices through the air very well. I haven’t seen much of a “dome top” on the Kahu discs that came in our shipment. A lot of big throwers like that flat profile.

I admire the fact that RPM Discs didn’t feel complete without including a “super class” disc. A lot of disc makers ignore the appeal of oversized discs and the fun new angle that they can bring to the game. Of course, the roots of disc golf are found in what we now call “super class” discs with a larger diameter and slower speed. We’ve traded in that high-glide, controlled accuracy for sexy, high-speed, small discs. RPM adds to the super class family with the TEMOKO.  This is a larger disc that is PDGA approved for use in disc golf, but could just as easily be used in games of catch-and-throw. It is not as large as Ultimate discs. It is closer to an Innova Zephyr. It’s a fun disc and a unique part of the RPM Discs arsenal.

Give RPM Discs a try! Find a spot in your bag for some exotic plastic from New Zealand and you won’t regret it!

The Buzzz GT – Exclusive Infinite Discs Cryztal Edition

Let’s talk a bit about the Buzzz GT

Nobody can deny that there are a plethora of disc golf discs available. There are discs manufactured for every possible throw in every possible course condition. Some discs vanish into the misty background of history as other, newer molds take their place and dominate the spotlight for a while. Players and disc enthusiasts can’t seem to get enough. Do most of us really need new discs, or do we merely strive to convince ourselves of the necessity?

Some discs hold a strong place in the game for many years, managing to stay in player bags, fortifying their reputation as disc golf staples. They manage not to be replaced or discontinued due to their ongoing popularity. The Buzzz by Discraft has been one of those discs that has held a strong reputation as the best-known and best-selling mid-range disc on the market. It has been produced in many plastic types since it was PDGA approved on September 30th, 2003. It has inspired the more understable version in the Buzzz SS which was PDGA approved on February 21st, 2008, and the more recent overstable Buzzz OS which was PDGA approved on July 19th, 2014.

Another disc manufactured by Discraft is the Banger-GT putter, which is a unique putter which introduced a “groove track” on the top of the disc which gives it an interesting feel and grip. The thumb rests inside the indentation that encircles the disc. The Banger-GT was PDGA approved on October 31st, 2005, only a couple of years after the Buzzz, but has really only enjoyed a cult following among players, rather than the massive fame of the Buzzz.

Somewhere along the line, Discraft decided to combine the Buzzz disc with the unique “groove track” of the Banger-GT to create the Buzzz-GT. The history of the Buzzz-GT is a little bit fuzzy but it didn’t remain in regular production at Discraft. Oddly, old website pages can be found declaring that the disc was discontinued in December of 2007, yet the PDGA shows the Buzzz-GT as being approved on February 21st, 2008, the same day as the Buzzz SS.

Regardless of how long it stayed in production and when it was approved, the number of Buzzz-GT discs in the market diminished quickly and it became a hard disc to find. Fans and collectors found themselves paying high prices on EBay for the rare groove track mid-range. Yet Buzzz-GT discs showed up from time to time as special event discs, pulled out of the archives as a sort of novelty.

DSC06043Now, as part of the 2016 Ledgestone Insurance Open series of special edition discs, Infinite Discs arranged to bring back a limited edition manufacturing run of Buzzz-GT’s in Discraft’s Cryztal Plastic. Now the groove track can be found on a Buzzz once again for those who want to try out the disc’s unique feel.  They are available in blue, yellow, green and pink with that beautiful, translucent look and an exclusive stamp design.
