Storm Disc Golf Continues to Build Their Disc Line-Up

It is fun to watch new brands enter the boutique disc market year after year. One of the newcomers to the disc market is Storm Disc Golf.

Storm recently released their second putter, called the RADAR, plus introduced their first offering in Category 3 plastic with a premium edition of their EYE mid-range. With those new releases, we thought we’d take a quick look at their disc line-up so far and give a quick run-down of the plastic types.

So far, Storm discs has the following:

2 Putters, 1 Mid-Range, 1 Fairway Driver, and 1 Distance Driver

 

The Jet Stream – Distance Driver

The Storm Jet Stream is an overstable, high speed distance driver with a fairly thick rim width. When thrown by experienced disc golfers, the Jet Stream will experience some high-speed turn before finishing the flight with a strong, low-speed fade. Disc golfers with less power will find the Jet Stream to be consistently overstable.

  • Speed: 12.0
  • Glide: 5.0
  • Turn: -1.0
  • Fade: 3.0

The Abyss – Fairway Driver

The Abyss is an impressive disc from Storm Disc Golf. This is a workhorse on the fairways with a manageable speed and dependable fade for consistent performance under all conditions. It can handle the power of experienced players who need precision s-flights to the basket. For less experienced players, it will have an overstable fade.

  • Speed: 8.0
  • Glide: 4.0
  • Turn: 0.0
  • Fade: 3.0

The Eye – Mid-Range

The Eye is a straight-flying mid-range which will hold the line for players of all skill levels. This wide diameter disc has excellent glide and can come in weights up to 181 grams for a solid, manageable feel and flight.

  • Speed: 5.0
  • Glide: 5.0
  • Turn: -1.0
  • Fade: 1.0

The Crater – Putt and Approach

The Crater is a unique putter where the center portion of the flight plate is lower than the outer rim, creating a unique feel and thumb track design. It is an overstable putt and approach disc designed to handle wind and find its way to the ground without a lot of glide.

  • Speed: 3.0
  • Glide: 2.0
  • Turn: 0.0
  • Fade: 3.0

The Radar – Putt and Approach

The Radar is a stable putter with impressive glide. It has a very different feel and flight from the Crater. It is very dependable with a straight flight path and is great for not only putting but also for approaches and finesse driving off the tee.

  • Speed: 2.0
  • Glide: 5.0
  • Turn: 0.0
  • Fade: 0.5

The 3 Plastic Types So Far

Storm Disc Golf currently has three plastic types which are as follows. Category 1 is their softer, grippy plastic blend designed as a favorite for putters or for playing in cold or wet conditions.  Category 2 is a premium plastic that is more opaque and durable, more popular in mids and drivers. And Category 3 is another durable, premium blend with a slight more translucent look that should last a long time even with rougher handling on the course.

We’re excited to watch as Storm Disc Golf continues to bring more discs to the market. If you have thrown Storm discs and want to give your opinions and comments below, we welcome your feedback!

CryZtal Sparkle Machete and CryZtal Vulture

CryZtal Sparkle Machete and VultureCryZtal plastic was one of Discraft’s original fundraiser blends. With bright colors, a translucent look, and more grip than traditional Z, many players have lusted after Discraft discs in CryZtal plastic.

Even if your arm can’t handle a disc as fast as the Nuke, you may want to collect this limited disc just for its visual appeal.

 

 

Three New Discraft Molds

Discraft has a lot going on right now, and to add to the fun, they’ve added three new molds to their lineup. These molds are presumably for Paul McBeth, the newest and biggest edition to their time. It has not been confirmed that these molds are McBeth related, but one can only guess.

The Kong

The Kong’s dimensions place it somewhere in the realm of the Destroyer. We’re looking at a speed 12-13 disc that has been rumored to be a new distance driver for McBeth to bag.

The Raptor

The Raptor’s dimensions place it around speed 9. This disc has been a Test Flight mold out on the market. People have compared it to a Flat Top Firebird, or a Felon. This could be another great mold for McBeth to bag.

The Luna

The Luna is a new putter, based on it’s dimensions. It’s close to an Aviar, with some subtle differences. Some people are guessing that this will be Paul McBeth’s new putting putter, while others guess that the “Luna” is his replacement for the “Nova“, and that he will use it for upshots.

Time will tell if any of these predictions are correct, but with the timing at hand, we can only guess that McBeth had some say in these molds’ design.

Four New Discs Approved for Latitude 64 and Dynamic Discs

As we look forward to 2019, we are excited to see what new molds are released! Lucky for us, we can take a sneak peak at four new molds from Latitude 64 and Dynamic Discs. These molds were all PDGA approved in November 2018 and are set to release in 2019. Let’s take a look!

Latitude 64 Recoil

PDGA Approved: Nov. 23, 2018

Latitude 64 Recoil Distance Driver

The Recoil has also been announced on Latitude 64’s website, giving us a little more information on the disc. The Recoil has flight ratings of 12, 4, 0, 3. Latitude 64’s description says that it will be a comfortable disc to throw with reliable fade at the end of the flight.

 

Latitude 64 Pioneer

PDGA Approved: Nov. 23, 2018

Latitude 64 Pioneer Fairway Driver

The Pioneer is a new fairway/control driver announced by Latitude 64. They give it flight ratings of 9, 3, 0, 4. These are the same flight ratings as the Firebird, one of Innova’s most popular overstable fairway drivers. Latitude says this disc will have a very flat top, making it a perfect choice for sidearm throws. This disc also compares closely to the Felon – Dynamic Disc’s overstable and flat fairway driver. We’re excited to see how it flies!

 

Dynamic Discs Guard

PDGA Approved on Nov. 4, 2018

The Guard was PDGA approved recently, but not a lot of other information has been announced about it yet. The dimensions of the Guard can help tell a story, though. It has very similar dimensions to the popular Judge. The Guard is just a touch smaller in diameter, a tiny bit taller, and has a slightly skinnier rim. This leads us to believe this will be a new putter, but that is all we know at this time!

 

Dynamic Discs Vandal

PDGA Approved on Nov. 4, 2018

The Vandal is another disc that has been approved by the PDGA, but not announced by Dynamic Discs. A look at the dimensions tells us at it is likely a new fairway driver around speed 8. This is due to the rim thickness being the same as the Witness and Thief. Again, not much is known at this time, but we’re excited to get this in our hands!

On a more controversial side note: The Vandal is the name of a prototype Legacy Discs mid-range mold. In 2018 some samples of the Legacy Discs Vandal had been floating around, but the disc was never PDGA approved. Unfortunately, to be PDGA approved, two discs can not have the same name, so Dynamic Discs might have beat Legacy to the punch.

 

 

New SLAB and ANUBIS Add to the Infinite Discs Lineup

Two new discs in the Infinite Discs brand lineup were released on August 3rd, 2018. Here is a quick look at the SLAB Utility Driver and the ANUBIS mid-range.

Metal Flake C-Blend SLAB

While the SLAB boast a “speed 12” rim for higher speed release and would regularly fall into the “distance driver” category, we felt like the massive overstability of the SLAB merited a categorization of Utility Driver. Such an overstable driver also deserves a notoriously overstable plastic blend, so we launched the disc in Metal Flake C-Blend.

This is a driver that you’ll love whenever you want a hard, dramatic end fade. It will work wonders when thrown into headwinds and is a must-have for high, spike-hyzer throws.

We tried to make sure that this first run of Slab discs would come out with a very flat top so that it would feel comfortable when used to slice through the air either with a powerful backhand or forehand release.

I-Blend ANUBIS

On the opposite side of the spectrum from the Slab, the ANUBIS was designed to be a user-friendly mid-range disc that is flexible and easy to control for players at any level. You can direct the Anubis with the angle of release and throwing speed to follow about any path you put it on. We felt that the perfect introduction to this great disc would be in affordable yet long-lasting I-Blend plastic.

Try out the Anubis in lighter weights for beginners or for young players, or in the heavier, max weight for experience players who want an obedient mid-range for precision approaches.

The TOMB Has Been Opened for Putt and Approach

INFINITE DISCS is proud to introduce a unique and trustworthy putt-and-approach disc, THE TOMBWe wanted to add a disc to the line-up that can be used for putting with precision, long-distance accuracy, but that also works as a great upshot and driving putter. The Tomb features a flat top and a comfortable, smooth, beaded rim that feels great for driving or putting. Feel confident outside the circle with the Tomb. Or unleash it for your longer approaches, knowing that it will hold the line and fly straight with only a gentle end fade.

Speed: 3.0 / Glide: 4.0 / Turn: 0.0 / Fade: 1.0

The Tomb has been introduced in durable, smooth S-Blend plastic for the first run.  The upcoming 2nd run will be presented in D-Blend for a softer, more grippy putter feel.

The Infinite Discs MYTH and SPHINX

Infinite Discs is continuing to build a balanced line of branded discs manufactured by Innova. The 2018 year has already brought the Exodus fairway driver, the Chariot mid-range, and the Pharaoh distance driver. We’ve now added to more discs to that lineup, both released at the end of April 2018.

THE MYTH

The Myth First Run is in P-Blend plastic, which is a stiff pro blend which works great for both driving and putting. There was also a first run VIP Club edition in grippy X-Blend plastic. Though the VIP Club stamped versions were only available to the VIP Club members, there were a few of the X-Blend discs remaining which were bottom-stamped if you want a grippy version of the Myth. You can find the few remaining X-Blend Myth putters HERE.

THE SPHINX

The first run Sphinx was released in I-Blend plastic which is a special blend made by Innova for Infinite Discs. It is durable, yet has good flexibility and grip. This is a great disc for beginners and experienced players alike and is available in a variety of weights from below 150 grams (awesome for kids) up to max weight 175 grams.

Check out this wonderful video review which also shows the flights patterns for the Sphinx.

Watch for more discs coming on the Infinite Discs brand in 2018!
