New Disc Golf Discs for 2016

New Disc Golf Releases in 2016

***This post discusses the discs released last year in 2016. If you’re looking for discs released this year, you’ll want to check out this post***

 

The Disc Golf Manufacturers have wasted no time this year releasing new discs and products. Here is our list of discs that have been released by the major disc manufacturers in 2016.

Axiom

  • Thrill – The Axiom Thrill is an overstable workhorse driver in Axioms 21.5mm distance class.

DGA

  • Sail – Understable easy to throw driver. For newer players
  • Pipeline – The Pipeline is a control driver that is slightly more overstable than the Sail. Flight wise, this disc has been compared with the Innova Teebird.

Both of DGA’s 2016 additions have been well received. These are both excellent drivers that are recommend for disc golfers of all skill levels.

Discmania

  • PDX – The Discmania PDX is a new power driver that is currently released as a fundraising disc for the Disc Golf World Tour. This is an overstable driver that is described as a cross between the PD and DDX. Discmania gives this disc the flight ratings 11/4/0/3.
  • DDX – The Discmania DDX has been one of our hottest selling discs of 2016. This driver, described as a less overstable Destroyer goes the distance.

Discraft

  • Undertaker – The undertaker is a stable control driver that has proved to be one of Discrafts most popular new releases ever. This disc is used by professional disc golfer Nate Doss and was the first release in our VIP Club.
  • Thrasher – The Discraft Thrasher is a slightly understable high speed driver that gives average players maximum distance. This disc is currently available in Elite Z plastic and has been another hot seller of late summer.
  • BUZZZ GT – The Groove Top Buzzz is a unique disc that was produced exclusively to Infinite Discs to sell as fundraiser for the 2016 Ledgestone Insurance Open.

Dynamic Discs

Surprisingly, Dynamic Discs has yet to release a new mold this year. We do know that they have several new discs that will be out at some time in 2016. DD also has some new backpacks; the Ranger H2O and Sniper have already been released while the Commander is coming soon.

Coming Soon:

  • Defender – Overstable High Speed Distance Driver that arrived as part of GBO players packs
  • EMAC Truth – This is a retooled more overstable version of the popular Dynamic Discs Truth.
  • Gavel – Easy to Throw Putter available in base Prime plastic. This will likely be the disc used in future DD starter sets. It has the same basic feel of the Judge but will be more understable and found in lighter weights.
  • Marshal – The DD Marshal is the putter that was used in this years Trilogy Challenge. For the Challenge it was available in Prime plastic but now it is also available in Classic Blend.
  • Proof  – This will be an Easy to Throw understable midrange and likely part of future DD starter sets.

Innova

Innova hasn’t wasted much time with the release of new discs in 2016. They have already released several discs and will soon be releasing a few more that have already been PDGA approved.

  • Colossus – This is the first Speed 14 driver in the Innova Line. It is a stable/overstable driver for most players and is currently available in GSTar plastic.
  • Stud – The Stud is slightly more overstable brother of the popular low profile Innova Colt putter. The Colt was one of our most popular Innova discs last year. The Stud is currently available in Innova DX plastic.
  • CommanderThe Commander is a unique very overstable midrange with a flight described as a midrange version of the firebird.
  • MirageThe Innova Mirage is a very understable approach disc that is great for beginners. This is also a good disc for turnover shots.
  • MystereThe Mystere is a distance driver that has not yet been released for retail sale, but was available as players pack items in several Innova sponsored tournaments. Members of our tester team were able to try it out.
  • SavantLike the Mystere, the Savant also has only been available in players packs. You can check out the video review of it here.
  • Shryke – Innova kept the distance driver Shryke a secret for a while, and we didn’t even know about it until it was announced available for us to purchase. This new distance driver has flight ratings of 13/6/-2/2 and is supposed to be somewhere between the Dominatar and the Groove in terms of flight.

Latitude 64

Latitude 64 has already released two drivers and a midrange this year. This surely won’t be all as they have several other discs in the works.

  • Compass – Stable midrange disc.
  • Cutlass – Overstable high speed driver.
  • Culvern – Overstable control driver.

Coming Soon:

  • Falchion – The Latitude 64 Falchion will be released as the Trilogy Challenge driver. This is described as a straight flying fairway driver with a light end of flight fade.
  • Knight The Latitude 64 Knight is a super consistent overstable driver.

Legacy

  • Enemy – The Enemy is another disc that was announced last year, that has been highly anticipated by Legacy fanatics. The Enemy is a very overstable driver with high speed and overstability. It’s supposed to be Legacy’s version of the Firebird and a weapon for headwinds and will be available in multiple plastics.

Millennium

  • Aquarius – The Aquarius is a new speed 10 floating driver. This disc is available in an extra stiff grippy plastic (similar to the plastic used in the Innova Wahoo) and will give you all kinds of confidence when you have to throw over standing bodies of water.

MVP

MVP continues to release a good number of new disc models each year. In 2016 they have given us:

  • Energy – The Energy  is the most overstable disc in MVP’s 23mm class.
  • Catalyst – The Catalyst is a distance bomber that even players without big arms can utilize for big distance.
  • Spin – Understable putter that will be released as part of the MVP Circuit players pack in Electron plastic.
  • Signal – This is a VERY understable fairway driver that was used as part of the Circuit players pack. This is a fantastic disc for new players.

Prodigy

  • A3 – The Prodigy A3 is said to fill the gap between a midrange and putter. This is still an overstable disc, but just not quite as overstable as the A1. It is consistent and reliable in all wind conditions and perfect for trick shots and approach shots.
  • A4 – The A4 is another unique approach disc with a perfectly flat top and unique thick rim.
  • D6 – The Prodigy D6 is a thick rim understable distance driver that is supposed to be a good roller disc.

Vibram

  • Onyx –  The Onyx is the last disc that appears on the Vibram flight chart. This is supposed a very beginner friendly understable driver, and unlike the Valley, Vamp, Notch and Arch, wasn’t released last year. The Onyx has been a big seller for us for new players, especially for in store sales.
  • It’s also rumored that Vibram will release some new midrange discs this year.

Westside

  • Catapult – High Speed Overstable Driver
  • Destiny – The destiny is a High Speed, High Glide, slightly understable distance driver. Many disc golfers have selected the Destiny as their new choice for maximum distance on the wide open field.
  • Longbowman – Stable/Overstable Control Driver
  • The Sling The Westside Sling is a stable flying midrange that was released in Tournament plastic as part of the Trilogy Challenge. It is now available in VIP plastic.

In addition to new discs, Westside is also planning on releasing discs with GPS technology and an additional midrange disc ”

Do you know of other releases that have, or will soon be coming out in 2016? Comment below and let us know what other new disc molds will be available this year.

Innova Announces Colossus Release

Innova Colossus, Proto Star First Run

Innova has just announced a colossal release. Their first speed 14 distance driver, the Colossus, will be shipped to retailers on January 18th.

The Innova Colossus will be initially released in GStar plastic. A limited number of first run stamped discs are available now for pre-order. Each retailer is only allowed 25 proto star discs, and there will likely be very few available after pre-order sales conclude.

Infinite Discs is scheduled to receive and ship out the Colossus to those who pre-order on January 20th.

In addition to the Colossus, Innova also announced the release of several other popular discs in new plastic types including the DX Ape, DX Roc3, GStar Leopard3 and Star Leopard3,

 

 

New Golf Discs for 2015

As the disc golf world continues to grow, so do the number of new disc models. Last year there were more than 70 new disc models introduced by more than a dozen different disc manufacturers. If historic disc manufacturing trends continue, this number will only increase this year.

Here’s what we know about new discs that will be released in 2015:

InnovaInnova VRoc

From PDGA approval and promotional releases, we know that Innova will release a putter the Whale, the Colt, and the new midrange (VRoc). There is also rumor of a really beefy putter the Innova Hawg, which may be like or replace the Pig.

Innova has also mentioned that there will actually be three different VRoc versions released throughout the year.

On January 16th Innova will release there new Wombat Midrange. This disc is said to be very similar to the Foxbat, but with “VTech” technology that makes it less likely to turn over.

Discraft

We haven’t heard any news about new releases coming out from Discraft, other than lots of new plastic varieties as limited edition fundraiser discs for the Ledgestone Open.

There will of course be a new release for the Discraft Ace Race this fall. Many disc golfers are hoping that this year the Ace Race disc will be either a putter or a midrange.

Trilogy

Trilogy Logo

Latitude 64:

Latitude 64 has already released a new ultra high speed driver, the Ballista, in the new Snow Line plastic. The catch with this new release that it is only available as a limited fundraiser for the Scandanavian Open. Word is that the Ballista won’t be available at retail prices in the United States until 2016.

As part of the Trilogy Challenge, a Latitude 64 putter called the Macana will be released.  This new disc will initially be available in Latitude’s new baseline retro plastic.

Dynamic Discs:

From the Disc Golf Answer Man podcast we learned that Dynamic Discs plans to release four new discs in 2015, plus the “Evidence” which will be used as the Trilogy Challenge midrange. This includes the Breakout (understable fairway driver), Justice (overstable midrange), and Convict (Overstable fairway driver).

Westside:

Another new release that will be available in May for those who play in the Trilogy challenge is the Sampo driver. This disc will be released in the new ultra flexible Elasto plastic.

Westside will also be releasing three discs on March 1st:

  • Seer – Understable Control Driver
  • Bard – Overstable Midrange
  • Swan 1 Reborn – Understable Putt and Approach Disc

Vibram

Vibram has been working on a new fairway driver the “Valley“. It seems as if development of a new fairway driver has been slower than desired, because they were not able to release it prior to the annual Birdie Bash. The Valley will be released at the end of June.

Later in the summer Vibram plans to release two additional new discs the Arch and Notch. Vibram also has announced a new rubber blend called “granite.”

MVP:

In 2015 MVP has already released a very highly rated new putter (Atom) in a new baseline plastic. They have also introduced the new Plasma plastic for their Ion putter.

As seen in the video, MVP is planning to release four new drivers that will have thicker rims and be even faster than the new drivers they released in 2014. The names of the new MVP drivers are listed below.

  • Phase: Overstable Distance Driver
  • Photon: Stable/Overstable Distance Driver
  • Wave: Neutral/Overstable Distance Driver
  • Orbital: Understable Distance Driver

 

Axiom:

The Axiom family manufactured by MVP continue to spit out new plastic at an impressive rate. Not only will there be new MVP distance drivers, but MVP has announced that there will be four new 2.0 cm Axiom drivers this year: The Fireball, Wrath, Insanity, and Virus. It will be interesting to see how different these discs will be from the Motion, Tesla, Inertia, and Impulse.

New Legacy Prototype Discs 2015Legacy:

Legacy has shared on its Facebook page that it has plans for four new discs in 2015: The Enemy, Hunter, Prowler, and Nemesis. The first released in this batch will likely be a new putter, probably the Prowler, as Sarah Hokum hinted during a podcast on Smashboxx TV.  The Prowler will be a beaded putter with a round edge. The Hunter is a very straight flying putt and approach disc.

While we’re not sure exactly sure what the drivers will be like, the Nemesis is a slightly understable high speed driver and the Enemy will should be a very overstable control driver.

Gateway:

Gateway WarspearGateway has two new putt and approach discs, the Warspear and the Devil Hawk. These are unique overstable putters with a thumb track on top.

The Warspear and the Devil Hawk have not yet been PDGA approved.

 

DGA:

DGA Steady PutterDGA has announced the release of its new putter the “Steady” because they have so much respect for Steady Ed Headrick, this beaded putter is supposed to be a really good one.

DGA will also release the Hellfire, an overstable driver.

Reptilian:

Reptilian is a new disc golf company that had its first disc the “Scale” PDGA approved at the end of last year.

What other new discs are expected for 2015 that we have missed?

PDGA Approved Discs: Release Rate

As disc golf becomes undeniably more popular, more discs enter the disc golf scene, vying for space in disc golfers bags. These facts about how many discs are being approved today, vs just 10 years ago may blow your mind.

PDGA Disc Approval Rate

1964 – 1987 Disc Approval Numbers

According to the list of PDGA approved discs (found here), the first approved disc was in 1964. That disc was named, according to the sheet “Professional” and was made by Wham-O / DTW. Twenty three years later, at the end of 1987 that number had grown to 71 approved discs.

Discs Approved Today

Fast forward to 2013. In 2013 alone, there were 73 PDGA approved discs, and as of October 15th, 2014 there are 70 PDGA approved discs in 2014. Since January 1, 2013 there have been 143 PDGA approved discs.
In all, there are 686 PDGA approved discs. Nearly 21% of approved discs in the market, have come within the last two years. This does not take into account the large number of discs which were once approved, but no longer in production. Were currently produced discs only taken into account, the percentage would be much higher.

Disc Approval Rate Per Year, by Decade

One final way to look at how disc production has changed, is to view the average number of discs approved per year, during a given decade.

1960’s:

    • .2 discs per year, or 1 disc every 5 years.

1970’s:

    • 1.6 discs per year.

1980’s:

    • 6.9 discs per year.

1990’s:

    • 10.6 discs per year.

2000’s:

    • 23.6 discs per year.

2010’s:

    (To Date):51.6 discs per year.

Disc Brand Increase

  • In the history of PDGA approved discs, 48 different brands have produced discs all time.
  • Within the last two years (after October 15, 2012) 27 of those 48 brands have produced a new approved disc.
  • 21 brands have not produced a new model within the last two years, either because they no longer manufacture, or they have not expanded their lineup.
  • Within the last two years, of the 27 that have made an approved disc, 14 of those brands had never created a disc previously. Over half of the brands creating new models today, did not exist before October 2012.

We’re curious what you think. Comment below and let us know your thoughts on any or all of the following:

  • With this many new models and new brands, is it good for the sport?
  • History shows us that not all of the molds being produced today will remain in production. Will discs be moved to “out of production” more quickly, because more discs have entered the market? Or is there room enough for all of the new molds being released, especially when considering industry growth in general?
  • Do you like the additional selection, or do you wish we were back to the days of ?
  • How much of your bag is comprised of these new molds?
  • From the brands which are older than two years, and have not produced any new discs, do you own or use any of their discs? If so, which discs?

New Discs For Spring 2014

New Golf Discs 2014Spring is in the air and the disc golf manufactures have been pumping out new disc models just in time for peak throwing season. In case you’ve been taking the winter off from disc golf, here is an update on the new releases of 2014 thus far.

While there are already more than a dozen new releases, there really aren’t very many new disc types to choose from. Most of the newest discs are either overstable putters, understable midranges, or beginner friendly understable drivers. In addition to the new molds, there is also a variety of new plastic blends that have been released Innova’s new GStar blend.

Putters

Axiom Envy – Axiom Discs (new MVP brand) was launched at the beginning of the year. One of their initial new colorful discs is the putt and approach Envy. This new disc is described as a great driving putter, and is more overstable than the MVP Ion and Anode.

Crosslap Credo – Okay, this disc isn’t actually a new disc, but it is new to us at Infinite Discs. This overstable putter from Germany has a very unique feel, a flat top, and is available in two different plastic blends.

Westside Harp – Westside fans are excited about the new release of the second Westside putt and approach disc. This new putter will be available in BT Soft plastic and is described as an overstable wind-fighting putter. Like the Envy, this disc will probably be more popular as an approach disc than a putting putter.

Midrange

Axiom Alias – The second disc in the Axiom line is a straight flying midrange described to be similar to the MVP Tangent with the same flight ratings as the Innova Atlas. Like the Envy, this disc is available in a plethora of color combinations.

Innova Foxbat – The Foxbat is a slightly understable disc with an Innova glide rating of 6 and a fade at 0. This straight flying disc is excellent for beginners and anhyzer turnover throws.

Crosslap Lucky – If you’re looking for a unique feeling plastic blend, you may want to try your luck with the Lucky. This German made midrange has a unique look, feel, and understable flight path.

Prodigy M5 – The M5 is an understable midrange perfect for newer disc golfers and shots that you want to turn right (for right handed backhand throws). This disc has a unique rim with an indented line that goes surrounds the circumference of the disc. First run M5’s are available in a unique “2014” stamp in Prodigy’s 400G and 300S plastics.

Salient Antidote – The Antidote is another understable midrange with a very similar shape, feel, profile, and flight path as the Innova Foxbat. This disc is available in two different plastic blends that have been highly esteemed by our reviewers.

Fairway Drivers

Discraft Mantis – The 2013 Ace Race disc has been slightly re-tooled to be more understable and is now available in Elite Z plastic. This will be one of the most popular discs of 2014.

Dynamic Discs Witness – The Witness is Dynamic discs first real beginner driver. This new fairway driver is described as a more understable River.

Latitude 64 Jade – The Jade is the fourth disc in Latitude 64’s “Easy to Use” line. This driver is supposed to have a touch more stablility than the Diamond. All Jade’s are light weight and easy to throw.

Legacy Mongoose – If you can’t decide which of the many new understable drivers to choose, you might as well try one out one with an eye catching stamp. This is where the Mongoose shines. Like most of the new fairway drivers, this one was designed with the new disc golfer in mind.

MVP Switch – The Switch is the understable low speed driver in the Resistor/Servo class. It’s described as a cross between the Tangent and the AMP, a disc that is very beginner friendly.

Westside Hatchet – Bring on the Hatchet. If you’re looking for an overstable wind fighter, the Hatchet is not the answer, but this disc is supposed to be more stable than the Underworld and most of the other new releases. Should be a good all purpose fairway driver.

Distance Drivers

Millennium Aries – Millennium Golf Discs started the year off by releasing a new high speed understable driver. This disc is a little faster than the new release fairway drivers, but still understable and designed to give more distance to disc golfers with moderate arm speeds.

Westside Sorcerer – The new Sorcerer released on March 1st is really the only high speed driver of the year designed for big arm advanced disc golfers. This might be the most popular of the new discs this year. The Sorceerr has a 2.3cm rim, like the King, and a glide rating of 6. It’s been described as a faster Sword.

MVP Distance Drivers Release

MVP SwitchWe received some big news from MVP Disc Sports today — a new driver, the Switch, will be available in stores on February 21st. While any MVP release is newsworthy for the disc golf world, this particular driver  isn’t the biggest news of the day. The MVP Switch will be an understable low speed fairway driver.

MVP fans have been craving a distance driver with the unique MVP look, feel, and Gyro Technology, for a very long time.

MVP Distance Drivers ChartThe big announcement is that four distance drivers of varying stability will be released beginning this spring. These drivers are called the Motion, Tesla, Inertia, and Impulse.

The Motion will be an overstable driver, the Tesla stable-overstable, the Inertia stable-understable, and the Impulse understable.

All four MVP distance drivers will have moderate width rims of 2cm. While the rim width of these distance drivers is only 1.5mm wider than the popular MVP Volt, the aerodynamic profile places these drivers in a different speed class. With that said, these drivers won’t be quite as fast as the speed 13 and 14 high speed drivers made by other companies.

All the MVP distance drivers will have a similar size diameter of 21.1cm. Weight ranges for the new discs will range from 155 to 175g. The new distance drivers should be great for long controlled drives.

The Inertia has already been PDGA approved and we are expecting its release in early spring (likely the end of March or the beginning of April).

MVP says this about the Inertia,

The first release will be the Neutron Inertia, date to be announced. The stability spectrum of this driver class places the Inertia in a workhorse stable-to-understable slot. It provides a sampling of the speed, workability, and GYRO™ effect of the full distance class.

Axiom Proton EnvyOther exciting news for MVP/Axiom fans is that the Alias and Envy will also be available in Proton plastic beginning February 21st. This transparent plastic blend gives Axiom fans dozens of additional attractive color options.

If you are an MVP fan, start saving your pennies as there will be lots of hot new products hitting the market in 2014.

Innova GStar Plastic Release

Innova Discs has launched their newest plastic, GStar to retailers throughout the country. The G is for “grippy”. This new plastic is similar flexibility to Discraft’s ESP, but often has the marbling effect of that you’ll find in Latitude 64’s premium Gold Line plastic.

Until recently, this plastic had only been available in the Innova Factory Store. It is now available through retailers to price and sell at their own discretion. The MSRP for GStar is $17.99, which is where you’ll most commonly find these discs priced. However, we do things a little differently, we’re moving GStar out the door for $14.47.

The most popular disc in this first release we feel will be the Krait. This disc is the second disc of the Paul McBeth signature series, and is the first time the Krait is released in an opaque, star plastic. In addition, the Krait has already been a very popular disc that has had no trouble selling.[/one_half][one_half_last][box type=”shadow”]The first lineup has several classic Innova discs in the mix, including:

With the GStar plastic, how many gaps are left in the Innova lineup that still need to be filled? It will be interesting to see what Innova does next!
