TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – JANUARY 15TH 2019

Infinite Discs is happy to present another Top 20 Tuesday chart, looking back at the discs that sold the most during the last week. We break these charts down by plastics as well so you can see which plastic types are most popular for each disc. New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle spots. It can be fun to see which discs keep up the pace.

Here we go…

#1 – Star DESTROYER
#2 – Paul McBeth PROTOTYPE PUTTER
#3 – Signature ESP BUZZZ

It is easy to see what ruled the charts this week. The Star Destroyer held onto the #1 spot with the release of the Ricky Wysocki Signature edition, which also helped to renew sales of the McBeth signature edition (folks now see an end coming to that supply). Paul McBeth successfully boosted Discraft to the next five spots on the chart, with sports 2-6 going strongly to his new signature edition discs. His prototype putter took the #2 spot as it is a limited run, and we now know that it will be called the LUNA upon stock release.

Other popular discs stayed on the chart, like the P2 in a couple of different plastic types as well as a healthy does of Innova drivers in Star plastic (Leopard3, Wraith, TeeBird, and Orc). Jumping into the top 20 this week we find the Wizard in Super Stupid Soft plastic and the overstable fairway driver, the Felon in Lucid plastic.

Here is a chart of how many times each brand appeared in the Top 20.

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – JANUARY 8TH 2019

Well, we took longer to get back to the Top Twenty Tuesday chart than expected, thanks to the crazy holiday season. But here we go with a chart that represents everything since December 18th.

New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle spots. It can be fun to see which discs keep up the pace. These will also be broken down by plastic types, so the same model can show up in multiple plastics.

Here we go…

The P2 and Destroyer have kept a strong presence at the top of the chart through the holidays, and the new Bullfrog flat-topped putter from Innova moved to the number 3 spot. The Scorpius by Millennium discs is holding strong at number 6, thanks to Gregg Barsby’s hot signature edition.  We can see a lot of discs hanging around that have been regulars in the chart, plus a few of the special editions still getting some love.

In case you are interested, here is a little chart that compares how many time each brand appeared on this week’s chart.

We expect to see some Discraft discs spiking the charts in the coming weeks as Paul McBeth signature discs are introduced to the market. With the holidays over, keep an eye on this blog for regular weekly charts.

TOP TWENTY TUESDAY – NOVEMBER 13TH 2018

Infinite Discs is happy to present the weekly blog post called TOP TWENTY TUESDAY where we let you know about the short-term sales trends for discs. We’ll show the sales figures from the previous Tuesday through the most recent Monday.
New discs will often spike in the chart as other top sellers shuffle spots. It can be fun to see which discs keep up the pace. These will also be broken down by plastic types, so the same model can show up in multiple plastics.
HERE WE GO…

Top Twenty Tuesday for NOVEMBER 13th, 2018

#5 – Star ORC
#6 – D-Line P2
#7 – XT Mix NOVA
#10 – P-Line P2
#11 – DX ROC
#14 – Star SHRYKE
#15 – Star BEAST
#16 – Eclipse ENVY
#18 – Prime DEPUTY
The Destroyer held a strong 1st position this last week, though the Full Foil Super Color BUZZZ made a good run with a strong #2 spot. Those Ledgestone 2019 edition Full Foil Buzzz discs are limited to 250 per Bee, with seven different bee designs, so collectors jumped on those quickly. Discmania made a good showing with their two new releases, the C-Line PD Freak which had a 10th anniversary stamp, and the Metal Flake C-Line MD4 which was new this last week. The rest of the chart shook up with several new entries, but all with moderate sales. In fact, there are only six discs out of this week’s top 20 that were also in last week’s chart, so that is quite a shake-up.

We had not winners for this week’s guessing, since the DX Roc jumped from nowhere into the #11 spot. That was pretty random, and hard to predict. We’ll make it easier this week…
GIFT CARD PREDICTION FOR NEXT WEEK:  Guess the #3 spot for next week’s chart!

Disc Data: Top Selling Trilogy Molds

We’re back again with more Disc Data! This time we take a look at the top selling molds from Dynamic Discs, Latitude 64, and Westside Discs. (Aka: Trilogy). We’re going to break it down by brand first, and then show them all compared together. Plus, at the end we will look at a summary of the three brand sales compared to each other.

Let’s kick it off with Dynamic Discs:

Right off we see that three putters, the Judge, Warden, and Deputy take the top three spots. To me this isn’t too surprising, as these putters have always sold well. The Deputy is the newest of the three and has climbed it’s way up the ranks since it’s release. Nothing else too crazy here, just cool data.

From Latitude 64 we see that another putter, the Pure takes first place by a good margin. The River follows up in second place. This isn’t too surprising, as this is a super popular disc for beginners and lower arm speeds. The Dagger has taken a fall though- it used to be the best seller of Latitude a couple of years ago due to Ricky Wysocki’s growing popularity. Recently the Dagger has slowed down a little bit, but still remains the third highest selling Latitude 64 disc, which is nothing to scoff at.

Wow. The Harp has truly shown it’s dominance this year by holding that number one spot and beating the Destiny by about triple. The best sellers drop off fast here, and then remain fairly steady throughout the rest of the molds. People really love the Harp, what more can be said?

But what do these sales look like against each other? Let’s take a look at all of the brands compared side by side:

Here we see that putters capture the top 5 spots of all three brands. The Judge still squeaks ahead of the Harp for the top spot! Do you see anything that intrigues you? Let me know in the comments!

Finally, let’s look at the brand sales compared to each other.

I thought this data was interesting. We start off with discs sold by brand. This is the total number of units sold by brand compared to each other. (Sorry, can’t reveal exact figures.) The second graph shows how many molds each brand has in production. A mold was counted if we sold any of it during the last year. So some OOP molds may still be counted if we still have remaining inventory to be sold.

The last graph represents the average number of discs sold per mold. We took the number of discs sold over the last year and divided it by the number of molds this brand produces.

This data shows some interesting things. First of all, Dynamic Discs holds 42.2% of the sales of the three Trilogy brands. However, Latitude 64 has 56 molds as compared to 32 and 31 from Dynamic and Westside. With nearly double the molds, but only a third of the molds sold, this shows as Latitude has the lowest average number of discs sold per mold. Westside Discs overtakes in this final category, proving that its few molds still hold a lot of power. This could be due to the Harp alone, or because of their unique stamps.

Do you notice anything else interesting? Let me know! Hope you’ve enjoyed this weeks’ Disc Data!
