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!

New Discs For Fall 2013

If you’ve been away from disc golf for a few months, there are several new discs that have recently hit the market. Some of these new discs are completely unique and unlike any golf disc you’ve ever thrown.

In case you’re looking for some new plastic to experiment with, here’s a break down of the new additions we’ve received in the last month and a half.

Discraft Crank - Max Distance DriverDiscraft Crank: The all new Crank by Discraft is nothing revolutionary, it’s simply an ultra fast driver that flies straight. The ESP plastic has been around for a while.  Despite the fact that there is nothing extra-ordinarily special about it, the Crank is already our top selling disc of 2013 — and we’ve had it for sale for less than two months! In terms of total sales for the year, only the Prodigy D1, D4, and Vibram Lace come close to the Crank.

Discraft’s reputation and positive user experience have made the Crank a very popular new disc.

 

Innova AtlasInnova Atlas: The Atlas really is a revolutionary disc. While there are other manufacturers that make two plastic over-mold discs, the feel and flight of the Atlas is unique. This straight flying midrange has an ultra grippy rim and a firm, flat flight plate. The Atlas’s flight path is very smooth with a most moderate fade. The grippy rim helps this disc stick to the ground and reduce skipping.

The double plastic mold make the Atlas one of the more expensive discs for sale, but those who have tried it have been nothing but impressed by the results.

 

unLace-VibramVibram unLace: The new Vibram unLace is perhaps the most understable high speed distance driver ever made. This thing is super easy to throw, and will likely become one of the top drivers for newer disc golfers looking for more distance.  This disc is available in the soft x-link medium as well as the x-link firm blend giving it a great look and feel.

If you’re looking for a driver that will experience high speed turn with moderate throws, the unLace will deliver unparalleled results.

 

Hyzer Bomb DiscHyzer Bomb Discs: Partnering with Millennium, Hyzer Bomb, has recently released three discs: the Mortar, Tank, and Tank Panzer. The Tank and Tank-Panzer are unique feeling putters with a thumbtrak grip available in Millennium’s soft standard plastic.

While the Tank is new to Hyzer Bomb, it’s actually an old golf disc that has been brought back from the dead. The Tank-Panzer feels like the Tank, but offers a more stable alternative. The Mortar is a very overstable midrange available in a unique softer plastic blend.

 

RIP DiscsRIP Discs: RIP is not a new company, but they are new to Infinite Discs. After receiving the Innova Atlas, and then hearing that other companies have already manufactured double mold discs, we added them to our lineup. RIP currently manufactures two putters and a distance driver. The Graboide and Relic putters are completely unique. They are tall bulky discs with an incredibly hard flight plate and a soft rubbery rim. These putters are unlike anything I have ever thrown. RIP’s driver, the Ballistic, consists of only one plastic, but it is one of the grippiest plastic blends I’ve ever felt.

In addition to new disc models, we’ve also added Innova X-Outs to our product mix. This is the perfect solution if you like both Innova and cheap discs.
