We’re excited to continue our Focus Friday blog where we take a quick look at specific discs. We may not get a focus put together every week, but we’ll try to keep some fresh discs in the spotlight on a somewhat regular basis.
The Emac Truth was a retooled version of the Dynamic Discs Truth mid-range, designed to fly with a little more stability according to the specifications of professional disc golfer and 2010 world champion, Eric McCabe (thus the “EMac” nickname). It is a wide-diameter mid-range at 21.7 centimeters width and has good glide and control. These are the flight numbers:
SPEED: 5 GLIDE: 5 TURN: 0 FADE: 2
Here is a look at pro player, Kesler Martin, giving the EMac Truth a good rip so you can see how it flies.

To wrap up the 2018 year, Discmania released the MD5 mid-range. While it has become common for mid-range discs to have a wider diameter than longer drivers, the trend in 2018 was to release smaller diameter mid-range discs, particularly more overstable discs. The MD5 is one of those smaller diameter, overstable mid-range discs, and it is a very precise one.
Released with a “First Run” stamp as well as with a stock stamp, the MD5 joined the ranks of similar discs released during the 2018 year– perhaps most closely related to the Innova Caiman. It has a profile quite similar to a Caiman, but in flight it does not get quite as much distance. Rather than a smooth, drawn-out fade, the MD5 has the tendency to drop its edge and fade steeply out of the sky once velocity is lost. That provides a dramatic and precise overstable fade for great accuracy when thrown by experienced players.
It is not a disc that would be friendly to beginners, but is designed for experienced players who are looking for an easily controlled, short-range, overstable mid. Where discs like the Dynamic Discs Justice used to stand out in this category, Discmania has added to their lineup with this strong contender in the MD5.
Other End-of-Year Plastic Releases by Discmania
Also to end the 2018 year, Discmania released a couple of runs of their most popular discs in fun, premium plastics. While this is not the first time these discs have been run in these plastics, they are getting a lot of love from Discmania fans. The available of these discs in these plastics is sporadic, so it is good to grab them while they are available. It is hard to know when the next run will come.
In February of 2018, Infinite Discs launched our first branded disc model, the Exodus fairway driver. It was received warmly by disc golfers and the first run is already sold out of max weights, with just over a hundred of the lower weights still available in early March.
Infinite Discs now presents our first mid-range disc, the CHARIOT!
The Chariot first run is manufactured in Glow C-Blend Plastic which feels great, glows great, and flies great as well. There are only 700 discs available in the first run. All of the Infinite Discs stock stamps say exactly which run it is, and how many are included in the run!
The Chariot is a straight-flying mid-range disc with excellent glide and a knack for following the thrower’s angle of release. It can be guided on smooth hyzer lines, on anhyzer turns, or can be used for straight, precision approaches on the fairway. The Chariot finishes with a gentle and consistent fade and is ready for frequent use in your disc golf game.
All Infinite Discs branded discs are manufactured by Innova Champion Discs.
