New Plastic Types for Scepter, Chariot, & Emperor

Over the weekend we released some new plastic types for some of our molds:

the Emperor in G-Blend – this is a premium, long-lasting plastic blend comparable to Innova GStar plastic. It offers a unique metallic shine that not only looks good, but it is also incredibly grippy and flexible. This plastic blend is especially recommended for playing disc golf when it’s cold outside. Meaning you can play in the cold and not have to worry about your disc splitting in half.

the Chariot in C-Blend –  this is a transparent, ultra durable plastic that provides outstanding performance and long life. C-Blend can maintain its flight characteristics for longer than most, softer plastics and is comparable to Innova Champion plastic.

the Scepter in G-Blend – this is a premium, long-lasting plastic blend comparable to Innova GStar plastic. It offers a unique metallic shine that not only looks good, but it is also incredibly grippy and flexible. This plastic blend is especially recommended for playing disc golf when it’s cold outside. Meaning you can play in the cold and not have to worry about your disc splitting in half.

Check out these plastics on our site. To celebrate these molds, they are on sale till this Thursday, September 24. Head on over to InfiniteDiscs.com for all your Disc Golf Needs.

 

Infinite Discs Huck Pack

Infinite Discs is excited to introduce the newest disc golf backpack to join the ranks of the Infinite Discs brand: the Infinite Discs Huck Pack. This backpack is available on Infinite Discs website for $39.99.

There are similarities between the Innova Adventure Bag, the Dynamic Discs Trooper Bag, or the MVP Shuttle Bag. Despite the similarities, the Huck Pack is different to those bags, as it has two deep insulated water bottle pouches. It’ll carry a 40oz insulated water bottle in it easily. The pouch covers a 32oz non-insulated water bottle completely, ensuring optimal insulation. This bag will hold even small water bottles. Also, it has an accessible spot for a pencil/marker and mini marker.

 

These are some of the reasons why this bag may be the bag for you:
  • You want an affordable backpack
  • It can carry around 20 discs regularly
  • The mini marker slot is easily accessible
  • This is a lightweight bag, even fully loaded the weight isn’t too noticeable
  • You desire a bag with thick straps and pads for increased comfort
  • The Quiver pouch is large, it can carry at most four putters in that pouch

All in all, this bag can be used by all skill levels. Uses will include casual rounds with the family, playing in the local tournament, or taking it onto a PDGA sanctioned event.

Head on over to Infinite Discs’ website to pick up your Huck Pack today!

Discmania Active Line Release

Discmania has been introducing their Active Line discs, initially in base plastic runs, but the time has now come for new disc names and premium plastic.  There are five “new” (renamed) discs that are available in both Active Baseline plastic and some in Active Premium. Head on over to Infinite Discs to check out these discs to see if they are a good fit for your disc golf bag: the Mentor, the Genius, the Magician, the, Maestro, and the Sensei.

Discmania went with an excellent choice of vivid colors for these new disc golf discs. This new Active Premium Line plastic looks wonderful and has good grip. You can read more about the release here. And of course, if you’ve been waiting for this new release and already know what disc you want, head on over to Infinite Discs to make your purchase.

Infinite Discs RUIN – Overstable Approach Disc

THE CONCEPT

Infinite Discs is very excited to kick-off the 2020 year with a new disc release to help enhance your disc golf short game. We’ve been working with Innova, the manufacturer of the Infinite Discs line, to create a mold for a small diameter, overstable approach disc. We’ve noticed that a lot of players, including pro players, have turned from standard mid-range discs to approach discs that have dimensions more like putters. We wanted a disc that would fit that trend, with a relatively flat-top and manageable rim size for both forehand and backhand throwers. We also wanted the disc to be overstable enough that it could be thrown with speed and confidence to hold the line for a longer stretch and still finish with a solid fade.

Maybe you’ve watched players like Paul McBeth throw the Discraft Zone for shots approaching the basket from a couple hundred feet away. Or you’ve watched Ricky Wysocki throw some amazing approach shots with the Innova Pig (used to throw the Westside Harp for similar shots). The list could go on, with many players using overstable “putt-and-approach” discs to get through tight fairways or to make runs at the basket from longer distances. That’s what we wanted in our own disc line.

THE PROTOTYPE TEST

Several months passed while the mold was created and prepared for a test run. In late 2019 we received a small box of prototype discs from the Innova factory so we could test our overstable approach disc. It was exactly what we were hoping for. The profile was just right with a flat-top that would feel great for forehand approach shots, plus a rim size that was not too tall so that it could also be thrown backhand with comfort.

Some of us at Infinite Discs took the disc out to throw it around and see how it flew. It felt like a great overstable complement to the already popular Infinite Discs Tomb, which is more of a straight-flying approach disc with minimal fade. We could throw the new test disc even harder without turning it over and it had significantly more fade.

We made the remaining prototype discs available to Team Infinite and VIP Club members as “Infinite Proto Mold #15” and those few discs sold out immediately. Our office team sought feedback from outside players who picked up those prototypes, and that feedback was very positive. So, we decided to order a complete run in durable, long-lasting C-Blend plastic (Infinite Discs equivalent to Innova Champion plastic).

COMING UP WITH THE NAME

You may have noticed that the Infinite Discs lineup has been using names that primarily recall ancient cultures. The brand kicked off with ancient Egyptian references, including the Pharaoh, the RA, the Sphinx, etc. Some discs were named after elements that could move across different ancient cultures, like the Myth, the Tomb, or the Chariot.  In the second year, we moved into some ancient Roman names like the Emperor, the Centurion, the Cohort, etc. Our third year is intended to be themed with ancient American cultural names, like with the early release of the Aztec. But with the new approach disc, we again wanted to pick a name that would cross all of the cultures.

Plus, as an overstable approach disc, we thought it should sound dense, or heavy. Well, all of the ancient cultures we know about have left their mark on the landscape through ruins. The heavy, megalithic ruins tend to last the longest and are often more memorable. Whether the ancient pyramids, the ruins of the Roman Empire, or the impressive temples of central and south America, we can still see and visit the remains of those cultures today.

Thus, the RUIN was named and will feature artwork with any number of ancient cultural references. The name was first revealed with the PDGA approval announcement. We found some of the initial reactions to the name to be quite humorous. “This disc is going to RUIN your game,” or “this disc will RUIN the course.” Luckily, most of us at Infinite Discs think that disc golf should be fun and that making fun of names is pretty harmless. So, why not wreak wreck and ruin with your overstable approach disc?

The RUIN was born.

THE LIMITED EDITION FIRST RELEASE

Infinite Discs has kicked off some of the previous disc releases with limited edition stamps. We thought the RUIN deserved the same treatment, so our initial limited edition will feature an XXL stamp. And what better way to ruin the ancient Egyptian ruins than with an alien invasion? Some of our stamps featuring Aliens taking over ancient cultures have been well received, so this fits right in.

WATCH FOR THE LIMITED EDITION RELEASE ON JANUARY 17th, 2020

Note: Some X-Out / Factory 2nd discs were made available in advance of the release, for those who wanted to try it early.

Also watch for a limited edition Las Vegas Challenge I-Blend RUIN to be featured in the am player packs at the event!

 

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!
