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: 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 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.
Vibram 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 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.
trotterbox by Box4Discs – This series of Photos demonstrate how assembled boxes can be shipped containing 25 typical putters each…
So How Wide is that Box? It’s About a Little More than a Comet Wide… Glad YOU Asked.

Hot on the heals of my first disc golf tournament, I played in my first ace race on Sunday. The Discraft Ace Race is a competition where players receive two new prototype discs and then use those discs to throw aces. It sounds easy; it’s not.
The discs are the same but you can kind of pick your colors and weight (or trade with others to get what you want). The event I attended at Irving Park had 27 holes set up. Most of them were on the original 24 holes of the course but with modified tee areas. The tees were designed to be more easily ace-able.

The dreaded dead center spit (bounce back). We’ve all had (at least) one. What is the deal with a “perfect” putt not sticking in the basket? My practice basket is a portable Chainstar, so maybe I’m biased when I say that Chainstars’ spit out dead center putts way more often than any other basket. I have a theory, which may very well be totally wrong, but could there be a correlation between crossed links and dirty spits? Now I’m not talking about putting into the basket when the links are already crossed up, but when your putter hits the chains and the links cross up. Does this cause the disc to ricochet out?
Anyone out there have any answers or other ideas?
I just purchased a Titanium buzzz. I purchased the olive color not realizing it is the exact same color of grass. I want to dye it a brighter color, something that wouldn’t be so easy to lose. Any suggestion on what dye or what color, or if I should even mess with it. Anything will help.
Everyone has heard the age old saying, “Drive for show putt for dough”. I follow a more loosely interpreted version of that, ”Drive for show putt for four”. Everyone wants to become a better putter, and honestly who doesn’t? Putting is easily the most important aspect of the game, it’s also where you can shave the most strokes off of your score.
I would like to know what everyone else does to help sharping their skills. Do you just play HORSE around a practice basket, or just place yourself around a basket and just putt till your arm’s sore. I’ve found a couple games to help you practice, while making it fun. Perfect Putt is a fun way to help hone your skill. Here is the link to download the scorecard and rules for it http://wilkesdiscgolf.org/Perfect_Putt_360.pdf. Twitter user @Inourdr gave me this link http://www.gardencityflyers.org/site/node/427 that uses another points based putting game. Discraft has some outstanding video’s on YouTube that are very beneficial and I recommend them to anyone, especially the putting with confidence video.
Feel free to leave a comment on other games you play while you practice, or suggestions that have helped you and could help others. The only advice that I can offer is start at a comfortable distance where your making everything then slowly work your way back till you hit a trouble spot. Once your at your trouble spot, you know where you need to really hone your practice. Don’t just go out and fire your putters into the basket, make every practice putt as if it’s for the World Championship. If your slow and methodical in practice, then once your staring down that 20′ birdie putt when it counts you will know what to do.
This was the second year my Fiancee and my buddy and his wife made the trip from Michigan to Bowling Green, Ky for easily one of the biggest Am tournaments of the year. The weather was absolutely amazing! I don’t know if you could of asked for better weather for the end of March. The temps were in the high 70′s to low 80′s the whole time with the wind only being a slight issue on Friday.
HB Clark and his team of volunteers go above and beyond to make sure everyone has a great time down there. The courses are always in pristine shape, no litter, graffiti, manicured fairways, and great baskets as well. If you are on the fence on this tournament please come, you won’t regret it! From the players package to the players party at Wha-bah’s Steakhouse’s with the final 9 located on the property. Most people come for the fly mart on Friday night where vendors and people can sell their merchandise. This year Discraft introduced Titanium plastic, which everyone flocked to. Eric McCabe was there to sign the new Titanium Buzzz SS’s as well.
Most vendors also hosted mini one round C tier tournaments at most of the courses before, as well as some BYOP doubles! Innova also has a longest drive contest that was one by Michigan’s own Tony Mitchell with a throw of 540′. Vibram held a CTP contest using their Ibex mid range for a spot on the test team. Another nice touch down there is if you win your card you receive a special prize. Do yourself a favor and head down next year, you won’t be disappointed! Here is a link to a couple more photo’s from down there.
In a new post over at RattlingChains.com, we look at this Friday’s disc sports event — Take Your Disc To Work Day. It’s a concept pitched to Discraft in the hopes to make it a global — and possibly annual — event.
Check out the story behind it and all the details about participating — and how you can win some excellent prizes — by heading over to Rattling Chains.
Also from the past few days — Our weekly poll is up and we’re talking disc count. In our weekly news wrap, we talk about Discraft’s new Titanium plastic and give the latest links for disc golf in the media. On Saturday, we posted our Photo of the Week and it was quite the shot. One of the better disc golf images we’ve seen and we had to share it!
If you haven’t seen it, as well, Avery Jenkins had his most recent blog post to Rattling Chains.
Finally, don’t forget we’re giving away some plastic. The contest runs for another week, so go enter!
