The Corvette, Sexton Firebirds, and Lucky Discs

The Luckiest new golf disc - The Innova Corvette

Hot new items have arrived to the Infinite Warehouse this morning.

With spring in the air and more daylight, disc golf is in full bloom and it’s time to stock up on the hottest new releases from Innova Champion Discs.

The Corvette

The Innova Corvette might just be the fastest driver Innova has ever made. If you’re looking for more distance, or are just looking for something new to try, you’re going to want to try the Corvette.

The Corvette is a speed 14 driver with a glide rating of 6, turn of -1, and 2 fade. Innova describes that the Corvette as a faster Shryke and says it is, “long on glide with just enough fade for freakishly-far throws”

We have the stock run and a limited number of “First Release” stamp discs online now.

Sexton Firebird

The Nate Sexton edition color glow Firebird is by far the highest demand, fastest selling disc we have ever stocked. If the batch we added today is anything like the last one we received, there is a good chance they will be gone by the time you read this post. But, if some still are available, you will be able to find them here:

Stamp Wars 2019 Winner – The Man The Bog and the Frog

We’ve got a winner for Stamp Wars 2019 — The stamp called The Man, The Bog, and the Frog designed by Kevin McDaid pulled ahead in the last day for the win! 

This was a unique stamp design because it can look like two different images, depending on which way you are holding the disc. At one angle it looks like a “bog” or swamp scene with a turtle and a frog. But turn the disc around and it looks like a bearded man.  Very creative!

Watch for The Man, The Bog, and the Frog to show up on more discs throughout the 2019 disc golf season. The other finalist stamps will still be available in the Infinite Discs store until they are sold out.

 

THANKS AGAIN to everybody who participated in Stamp Wards 2019 by submitting designs. Thanks also to all of those who contributed to the contest by voting and by purchasing the discs by the finalists. Thanks again!

Best Disc Golf Utility Discs

DGA Mach Lite Disc golf practice target

This disc has a few different names. It is the specialty disc or the get-out-of-trouble disc. Some people even call it their “Oh…shoot” disc. We are simply calling it the utility disc. It is the disc that you wish you had in your bag when you are stuck under a tree or are facing a unique approach shot. You can use it forehand, backhand, and sometimes even overhead or scooby. For a lot of disc golfers it is one of the most valuable discs in their collection because they find themselves using it more and more, and they would feel lost without it out on the course. We will be mostly looking at discs with a unique flight and shape. Our nominees will also mostly be overstable discs as they are common discs for this purpose. As always, our two keywords are popularity and utility. We are looking for popular discs that can be utilized by disc golfers of all skill levels. Also for this category we want discs that can be utilized in a variety of ways. So let’s take a look at our nominees for The Infinite Discs Best Disc Golf Disc: Utility Disc.

 

Innova Firebird

The Innova Firebird might end up with the most nominations by the end of these posts, but that’s what makes it a perfect nomination for the utility disc category. The Firebird is so versatile. It is an overstable fairway driver that is thrown backhand and forehand all over the course. And then if you find yourself in trouble, you can use it to get out of trouble in a variety of ways including overhead shots. The Firebird is consistently a best seller, and it is easy to see why.

Innova Gator

The Innova Gator hasn’t been in one of these posts for a little while, but it is a fantastic utility midrange disc. The Gator is a beaded midrange with a very overstable flight. It is great for getting around tight corners or fighting tough winds. In extreme winds it has even been seen on the putting greens in professional disc golf tournaments. So the Innova Gator is a great disc to have in the bag for those “just in case” situations.

Westside Harp

The Westside Harp has received a few nominees, and it is a great utility disc that can serve several purposes for disc golfers. It has a beadless rim and flat top that makes it very comfortable for forehand throws. The Harp is an overstable approach putter that can be used all over the course and like many of these discs, it offers extra help if some unexpected winds pick up during your round.

 

 

Dynamic Discs Justice

The Dynamic Discs Justice is a monster of a disc. Is in an extremely overstable beaded midrange. It is similar to the Innova Gator, but significantly more overstable. The Justice knows no glide. This disc wants to fall out of the sky as soon as you throw it. You might initially think this is a bad thing for a disc, but it helps fulfill the purpose of this specific disc. The Justice is a beast in the wind and offers a reliable flight that is crucial when selecting your utility discs.

 

Innova Nova

The Innova Nova is our recent winner of the best driving putter. This disc is not anything close to overstable, so it doesn’t fit with most of these other nominees, but it has its own purposes as a utility disc. For one, it is an ultra-straight flying disc with nearly no fade at the end. So if you find your self in the trees with a tight tunnel to get back to the fairway, the Nova could do the trick. Also the unique overmold offers a very sticky landing. So if you are throwing onto a small island and don’t want your disc to skip or roll off the island, the Nova is a great choice again.

Latitude 64 XXX

The Latitude 64 XXX was one of our nominees for the best overhead discs. It is pretty similar to the Innova Firebird with a flatter rim. This rim makes the XXX a great choice for short overstable roller shots Have you ever been stuck behind a giant bush or tree and the basket is just on the other side? You don’t want to take two shots to give yourself a look at the basket, so a little flick or backhand roller shot could be just what you need, and the XXX is a great choice to execute this shot with (I might be speaking from experience).

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.
