DIVIDERS & FILLERS AVAILABLE 4 the trotterbox by Box4Discs:
As a part of our new disc golf storage systems we will be offering “Dividers” and “Fillers” … Dividers making it easier to identify molds as a part of your own collection or your point-of-sale setup and Fillers to take up space in a partially filled box to minimize storage wear… Any questions about our new boxes just reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For a new disc golfer, determining which discs to buy can be really confusing. There are literally hundreds of different frisbee golf discs currently manufactured, multiple plastic grades, and varying weights.
Which discs and options should you choose?
My advice to beginners is to keep it simple. When you’re first starting out, you don’t need a full bag of discs, a starter set of three is sufficient. It’s more important to perfect your technique while getting used to a few beginner friendly discs.
What discs are beginner friendly?
For distance purposes, light weight understable discs are generally best. Golf discs typically weigh between 150 and 175 grams. Understable discs are easier to control, get more distance, and produce less fade than other drivers for players with slower arm speeds.
Faster is not always better. For beginners, midrange discs may fly farther than distance drivers. A fairway driver like the Innova Leopard or Latitude 64 River will likely perform better than any distance driver. For newer disc golfers, I recommend considering discs with a speed no greater than 9.
At Infinite Discs, we have several tools to help new disc golfers buy the right discs.
Disc Buying Guide
Disc golf has its own terminology. We offer a guide that explains things such as stability, disc speed, fade, turn, plastic differences, disc brands and more.
Find The Perfect Disc Search Engine
Within our “find the perfect disc” search one of the options is “player skill level.” By selecting “beginner” your disc search will narrow down the infinite options to only those discs recommended for new players. Add some options such disc type and star rating, and choosing a great disc will be easy.
We have four different disc golf sets designed specifically for beginners. These sets include three different discs: a driver, midrange disc, and putter.
If you’re looking for cheap, our Beginner Set #1 is highly recommended. This set includes three of the highest rated beginner friendly discs that are available in inexpensive basic plastic. We also offer our Cheapo Set, which has lesser known discs, but that is available for less than $20 — a price anyone can afford.
If quality is of greater concern than price, we have two packages that flat out have the best beginner discs period.
Disc golfing is awesome, so get started today. To make sure you get maximum satisfaction, make sure you choose the right discs. Happy discing!
I realize I need to get a little more regular about posting our news at Rattling Chains over here at TalkDG, so let’s see if I can do it in a weekly review sort of way.
Despite the Thanksgiving holiday, things have been busy at Rattling Chains.
Today is an in-depth story about Vibram Disc Golf, its beginnings, the current state and the future.
This story is part of our “Friday features,” where we’ll work to give readers a longer, more detailed read. We’ve had several solid reads recently, including a two-part series on DG Course Review (Part 1 I Part 2) , and one about two people playing their 1,000th course together.
Jenny Cook offered her thoughts on how tough it can be playing as a woman in tournaments in Wednesday’s post.
On Tuesday, we had a Photo Focus post. And Monday, as per normal, was our weekly poll. This week, the poll covered readership of Rattling Chains. It’s the first of two polls concerning the site as we’re looking to change a few things around.
If you haven’t had the chance to visit RattlingChains.com lately, we’ve had some good content. Come check us out!
In the past few weeks, we’ve gone to posting five new stories per week with the hopes of our Friday story being more of a feature — something that can hold the weekend. Maybe it’s something people will read in a couple of sittings instead of one. Or maybe it’s just a piece we feel should be out there longer.
The rest of the week is our normal content, which we hope is quality and something to keep readers coming back for all their disc golf reading needs.
Today, we have an in-depth look at this weekend’s Players Cup, which is happening in Texas. Go see what the tournament is about, its start and a few players to watch.
On Thursday, new Rattling Chains writer Aaron Minton talks about finding magic in playing leagues. Wednesday’s post was the second installment of “Words with Wysocki” as touring pro Ricky Wysocki talked about being in Philadelphia and playing the Yetter.
On another note, we are always looking for story and poll ideas. If you have any, feel free to contact me and let me know.
How do you rate a disc golf course?
Jack Trageser asks that question today at Rattling Chains. With so many things to consider, it seems each disc golfer is different from the other. So stop by, check out the story and comment to let us know what’s important to you when rating a course!
From Wednesday, we also gave an update on the future of RattlingChains.com. Go check out our six-month progress report.
This week’s poll over at Rattling Chains is asking people what they spend on this sport.
After all, it’s a sport that is proposed as being quite cheap. And it can be. But, for some, not so much.
You get the idea. Stop over to Rattling Chains and vote in the poll and drop us a comment about your spending habits.
The world of night golf. Where glow discs, LEDs and glow sticks are much-needed items!
Rattling Chains writer Andre Fredrick takes us through ways of preparing and playing a round of disc golf. He offers some tips and gives a small list of items one should bring to have a successful outing. Go check it out at RattlingChains.com!
Daredevil Discs have been loaded at www.REVIEWdg.com
Take a peek over at REVIEWdg.com and Rate and Review over 350 discs already loaded into the disc database. New discs still being added almost daily.
It’s no secret I’ve fallen in love with (some my say became obsessed with) disc golf. It was sparked around the time of my bachelor party and all of my groomsmen have also taken up the sport. I knew I wanted to make a special gift for my “team groom” and our shared affinity for disc golf provided the perfect project. I had read a little online about dying discs so I came up with a design and set out to create custom putters for the guys.
Some really nice and thoughtful reviews are starting to populate the disc pool… Remember to get your entries in for the Vibram Swag Giveway that includes a Dry-Fit Polo and 2 Obex Prototypes… Details on the front page at www.REVIEWdg.com
Here is a friendly tip regarding the contest – A review of the OBEX is worth 25 entries in the contest and there are two plastics to review = 50 points. Please make sure you have thrown it before you review it… Only meaningful reviews will be counted… Check out the front page of REVIEW for all of the specifics of the contest.

‘Tis been a while since we updated the readers of TALKdg what we’re up to over at RattlingChains.com…
… Better late than never, no?
Anyway, we’ve been kind of throwing on fumes lately, but are picking back up. You can see what’s going on with us by checking out the “State of the Chains” address we had a few days back.
Having trouble with putting from distances? How about a falling putt? Rattling Chains lead instructor Jack Trageser takes you through the workings of what many call a “jump putt” in his latest story.
Oregon-based writer Andre Fredrick has recently joined the staff at Rattling Chains. His latest piece is about how knowing your ability and what you can do with your game can help you win the battle with trees.
Right now, with many people out playing and such, Rattling Chains is on a 3-4 posts per week schedule. We have some fun and exciting things coming down the pipeline, though. Keep peeking back!
