Happy New Years, may 2021 be a great year! To start the year off, well look to Gateway’s Voodoo and have a Focus Friday sale on it. Over the weekend you can buy all Voodoos at 10% off by using the discount code: FOCUSVOODOO.
The feel of the Voodoo is pretty typical to putters, a very rounded edge with a deep rim. Also, it has a microbead that isn’t too noticeable. Based on your reviews, this makes a great disc as a throwing putter or as your putter. Driving with it, will lead to a nice straight flight path with a little fade at the end. Or if you want, you could throw it with a nice hyzerflip. This is also a great putter if you want something very straight with little to no fade at the end. Regardless of your use, now is a great time to get more these, or to try it out. With the promo code you can get them all at a 10% discount.
Do you use this for approach shots or putting?

Launch Disc Golf is now available for purchase on InfiniteDiscs.com. They are a UK based disc manufacturer that produces quality discs for the fast-growing disc golf market. There are two types of plastics available; Alpha and Omega. Alpha is the premium plastic, while the Omega is more of the putter type plastic. You can get the Cipher in Alpha, Code in Omega, and Lander in Omega. Read more about them below:
The Cipher is the first driver release from Launch Disc Golf. It is a straight-to-overstable driver that can be used as a workhorse disc to traverse the fairway. It is comfortable to throw either backhand or forehand and it recommended for players at all experience levels, since it does not have an overly fast rim speed.
The alpha plastic is a little bit on the slicker side of plastic feel. This plastic has some bend to it, regardless, it still feels firm and durable. This disc is available for purchase on InfiniteDiscs.com/Launch-Disc-Golf-Cipher for $17.99
The Code is an all-purpose mid-range disc. When thrown with power, it will reach a surprising distance. It has a slight turn when thrown with high speed, superb glide phase with a reliable fade finish.
The Omega plastic is on the tackier side of plastic feel. This plastic is stiffer than the Alpha plastic. This disc is available for purchase on InfiniteDiscs.com/Launch-Disc-Golf-Code for $12.49.
The Lander is an excellent debut putter from Launch Disc Golf. It has a flat top, a nicely rounded nose (rim) for comfort, and a smooth micro-bead for a little added stability. Categorized as a stable putter, having a straight flight path with a little fade at the end.
Dallin Blanchard is one of our top tier sponsored players, he doesn’t have the opportunity to tour as much as he would like, so many people aren’t aware of who he is. And with the recent release of his signature tomb, we thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce him through a little Q&A post. He is a phenomenal player, ranked 12th in the world, per the latest PDGA ranking update. He lives in Idaho, has a wife and four kids, and works full time. Without further ado, read more about Dallin, and give him some support by buying his signature Tomb which is now available on InfiniteDiscs.com.
How did you learn about disc golf?
My dad, brothers and I used to play “frisbee golf” while growing up. We would play with ultimate frisbees while on camping trips and in the backyard. We didn’t know there were actual baskets and that this was an actual sport so we would use trees and other obstacles as our targets. My oldest brother picked up disc golf while at PA school in Las Vegas. He told me about it and I was immediately hooked.
How long have you been playing disc golf?
I started playing disc golf in the spring of 2013 which makes it close to 8 years. I started playing casually while living in Washington DC and then got more serious when I moved back to Idaho in the summer of 2014. I played my first tournament in 2014 in the Intermediate division. In 2015, I decided I wanted to be a pro, so I played my first Open tournament and took 5th. Since then, I have only played in the Open division with the exception of the 2016 Memorial Championship where I played Advanced and tied for 5th place.
Within the disc golf world, who do you look up to?
Paul Mcbeth because he is the best and I want to be the best and beat the best. I still have a ways to go though… Garrett Gurthie because of his amazing skills with the disc and amazing attitude on and off the course. He is very easy to root for! I look up to several other players but these 2 guys stick out the most.
What’s your favorite Driver – why?
My favorite backhand long distance driver is the Star Destroyer. The Destroyers that are in my bag both give me max distance with a very consistent turn at the beginning of the flight and left fade at the end of the flight. My favorite forehand driver is the Infinite Discs Slab. I love that I can throw this disc as hard as I want and will always know that it will finish to the right for me. Both drivers are very consistent and have given me lots of birdies!
What’s the best aspect of disc golf? – ie) Long drives, hitting gaps, long putts, meeting people or something else?
While all the things you mentioned are really good things about disc golf, my favorite aspect is the competition. I grew up with 5 boys in my family and pretty much all we did growing up was play sports and compete against each other in the backyard. I love competing against myself and being able to push myself to be the best. I also enjoy competing against better players than myself because it gives me a drive to figure out how to get to their level.
What is your favorite course, and what made it so?
I have 2 favorite courses. My first favorite is Freeman Park in Idaho Falls, Idaho. The reason this is my favorite is because this is the course that I “grew up” on. It is a beautiful well maintained park with big mature trees and grass fairways. There is a small creek that runs through about 5 holes of the course. This course has everything needed to make an elite disc golf player. My second favorite is Camp Sekani in Spokane Washington. This was one of the first wooded courses I played. I love the big tall pine trees and wooded fairways that require you to shape your shot to get into birdie position. I am a fan of all types of courses whether it is in the park or in the woods.
What brand is your favorite?
I currently throw discs from the Innova, Infinite, and Discmania line up. My favorite brand has always been Innova because that is where it all began for me.
Other than disc golf, what are some of your hobbies?
As mentioned above, I am a sports fanatic and played basketball, baseball and football growing up and through high school. I love riding bikes around our neighborhood with my wife and 4 kids. I enjoy everything about the outdoors and love camping and hiking with my wife and kids. I also do a little hunting and fishing each year as well. Also, another favorite hobby of mine is cooking food on my Green Mountain Grill smoker.
Will we see you tour more in the future?
Having a full time job, a wife, and 4 kids definitely makes it very difficult for me to be on the typical disc golf tour. My plans for 2021 are to play in 2 pro tour events, Worlds, qualify and play USDGC, and play several A tiers and B tiers in the Idaho, Utah, Montana, and Washington areas. As disc golf continues to grow and sponsorships continue to increase, I definitely hope there are opportunities for me to tour more in the coming years.
Thank you Dallin for giving us the time to answer these few questions. Keep an eye out for him this upcoming year, as he has plans to play in two pro tour events among other events. You can even look him up on social media, he has had multiple shout-outs there. Or follow him on Instagram: dallin_blanchard. If you like the tomb, you should check out his Concrete Signature Tomb, it is a great looking disc.
There are some new plastics released for some of our Infinite Discs molds. The Myth is now in C-Blend. The Exodus is now available in I-blend. And you can get the Slab in I-Blend as well.
The Myth is a dependable, beaded putter with a comfortable rim that can be used for precision putting, or as a driving putter and approach disc. If your putting game can’t be a thing of legend, then at least let it be a thing of Myth. Inspire friends and family to talk about your epic putts around late-night campfires for generations to come.
The Exodus is a stable, controllable fairway driver. The comfortable rim design and manageable speed are perfect for players at all experience levels. It is a trustworthy disc on the fairway and excellent for navigating wooded courses. It has a precise, long flight pattern with a consistent fade, plus it can also handle all the power you can give it for long-distance flights.
The Slab is a high-speed, very overstable distance driver with a flat top and wide rim. TIt is designed for power throwers who want a disc that still fades, no matter how hard it is thrown. This disc works wonders for spike hyzer throws, strong forehand throws, as a wind fighter, or as a utility disc when you need to fade hard around obstacles. Watch the Slab slice dependably through the air under any conditions.
This putter is available now in Eggshell plastic. There is a more typical putter plastic on the way. Like other Dino Discs, this is a very lightweight disc. Making it a great disc for kids, senior players, or anyone who has a slow arm. The Triceratops is an understable putter that flies fairly straight with a gentle fade at the end.
This week we will shine the Focus Friday light on the Streamline Pilot. Use the promo code FOCUSPILOT to get 10% off this weekend till Monday night.
This is a well rounded putter with a pretty close to straight flight path. Driving with this putter, you’ll be able to throw it straight with a slight curve out to the right before it’ll fade slightly back to the left (RHBH). Putting with this one, you can have confidence that it will fly straight (at the circle’s edge and a little beyond). Holding the putter, it is comfortable in your hand. All the plastic types it comes in, have a nice in-the-hand feel. Whether your old putter is no longer hitting the chains like it used to, or you need a new driving putter the Streamline Pilot is worth trying out. What better time to try it out than this weekend, as you can get it at a discounted rate of 10% off.
This week’s Focus Friday is for the Infinite Discs Scarab. It is a beaded putter with a shallow rim and a decent amount of glide.
If you have yet to throw this disc, now is a great time to try it out. From now until the end of Monday, you can buy it with 20% off by using the promo code: FOCUSSCARAB.
What I have enjoyed about the scarab is its versatility. Spin, push, and turbo putting with this is easy. Driving with this disc is really consistent as well. I have found that the product description is pretty dead on for this disc:
The Scarab is a beaded putter that has a similar rim configuration to the Infinite Discs Myth, but with a different flight plate that provides a longer glide for longer putts and approaches. If you love throwing putters for distance, or you’re seeking pinpoint accuracy with your putting game, the Scarab will earn a spot in your disc bag.
We initially designed this disc for Joel Freeman who then named it the Scarab. You can get his signature Scarab here . Also, if you want to learn more about him, watch the video below.
Head on over to our site and pick one up this weekend. Use the discount code FOCUSSCARAB and you’ll get 20% off. It’s a great time to buy this disc.
Note: After placing your discs in the shopping cart and before checking out, click on the “Discount Code” box under the shopping cart and enter that code. Then proceed to checkout.
