Last week, I wrote a post outlining my top ten reasons no one should ever bash another company’s discs. It is currently my most read post with over 4014 views so far. I got some great feedback both here on the blog as well as back channel. First, thanks to everyone who took the time to read that post and pass it along to friends. Second, thanks for the mostly positive and supportive feedback. Seems like we have all run into the jerk that I described in that post.
I was also encouraged to see how many people out there throw a mixed bag. There was a time, not too long ago, where that didn’t happen on the scale that it does today. While a lot of disc golfers still stick to just one company or family of companies (in the spirit of full disclosure I’m of one of them, but more on that in another post), more and more people are dipping their toe into the really rewarding waters of new plastic.
I have a sickness. I have an unexplainable need to buy and try almost every new disc that comes out. That includes all plastic variations, all new rim configurations, and even new runs of discs that I hear fly different than previous ones. I love new plastic. I love throwing new molds. I love feeling the plastic and blends that the newer companies are putting out there. Like I said, I have a sickness.
Well, that said, I thought I’d share a list of discs you might like to try. This isn’t a disc review article. It’s just a list of discs that I’ve tried and thought were exceptional. I think all of the companies deserve a try and I think they all make at least a few really great discs. If just one person finds a new disc that saves them strokes, it will have been worth the time it took to write this! Without further blabbering on my part, here is part one…..
