Frisbees, Discs & Equipment

I get asked all the time where I buy my frisbees from and where to get disc golf baskets, so this page will be a resource where you can buy discs, baskets and other equipment, depending on your needs.

Before you read any further, I implore you to take stock of the discs that you currently own. If you don’t play competitively, then chances are that you have a crappy disc that doesn’t fly well. That means that if your disc is hard to throw and doesn’t fly well, chances are it’s not you, it’s the disc. That’s right. You can blame the disc for why you can’t throw. I can guarantee if you buy any of the discs on this page, they will fly properly, and you will have fun compared to trying to throw a dollar store disc.

Custom Frisbees

If you would like to order custom frisbees for your school, organization, or event, they are $5/each for blank Fastbacks and if you want to get them custom stamped, you would need to order at least 100. They come in a variety of colours (see below). Please Contact Me if you are interested in a Custom Order.

 

Throw & Catch Discs

The best throw and catch disc on the market is either the Hero Disc Xtra 235 or the Wham-O Frisbee Fastback. The Xtra 235 is meant for dogs and is more durable but the Fastback is less expensive and great for kids of all ages, from as young as 3 years old and up.

If you are looking for an ultimate disc, any ultimate disc recognized by USA Ultimate for championship level play is preferred. Don’t spend more than $15 for an ultimate disc. You can buy from The Wright Life:

If you are a trickster and want to get into Freestyle Frisbee, then you’ll want to throw the Discraft Skystyler, the standard disc used by Freestylers worldwide. You can buy on The Wright Life:

Although an Aerobie Sport Ring isn’t considered a flying disc, you can still have lots of fun tossing it around (although be careful because it can go really far without much effort!). Buy from The Wright Life:

Although not a disc, the X Zylo is a flying object that can do some really cool things in the air. Try it out!

Trick Discs

The SpinJammer is the disc I use in schools to spin on kids’ hands and it’s a lot of fun for any age. It’s not meant as a throw and catch disc, but rather to do tricks with while it’s spinning.

The Whiz Ring is fun for air brushes, body rolls tips and trick catches. It’s not really meant for throwing but it’s lightweight and a lot of fun for all ages!

Golf Discs

There are many different manufacturers of golf discs, but I have always preferred Innova Champion golf discs. Since February 2017, I have been a sponsored played on the Innova Ambassador Team, although I have been throwing Innova discs since I started playing in August 2010.

I buy mine through The Wright Life, where you can request a specific colour and size. I also like to buy locally, so in Calgary I go to Lifesport and Don’s Hobby Shop.

If you are brand new to disc golf, I recommend the Innova Zephyr/Makani. I would also recommend for anyone getting into disc golf to start with a putter, then work your way to a midrange and then up to a driver. If you can’t throw with a lot of power, you’ll find that you can throw a putter just as far as a driver. It’s all about progression. Many manufacturers sell starter packs which are a good option as well.

Dog Discs

First of all, DO NOT buy the $0.69 discs from pet stores that look like paper plates made from plastic. They are crappy discs, that don’t fly well and that are dangerous for your dogs.

Now, depending if you have a dog with a really hard bite or a soft bite, you’ll want to order different kinds of discs. Also, if you’re going to be competing in disc dog competitions, the type of disc will make a difference so be sure to ask the organizers before you buy specific discs. For general throwing to your dog, I recommend either the Hero Xtra 235 or the Super Hero 235. The Super Hero is much more durable but it’s also heavier and is more expensive.

Equipment

Depending on the disc sport you’re playing, some equipment is required. For ultimate, cleats are always nice, and so too is a bag to carry your discs, cleats and sweaty clothes.

For cleats, I’ve always been a fan of the Nike Speed or Vapor line of football cleats although there is a new ultimate specific cleat from Universe Point that I really like too.

For a bag, I have been using (and love) the Greatest ultimate bag, which you can order here:

For disc golf, there are many options for equipment including towels, bags, carts, shoes, baskets, and accessories. Adidas Outdoor has been a huge supporter of disc golf, so I recommend supporting them for shoes here. There are many stores that carry all of these products, but here are the ones I recommend:

Disc golf bag: Super HeroPack – https://dgustore.com/index.php/gear/bags/super-heropack.html

When it’s really cold outside or wet, I recommend throwing with gloves. The best gloves I’ve tried are Layout Ultimate gloves, and I’ve also set a Guinness World Record wearing them!

VivoBarefoot
http://www.vivobarefoot.com – wearing minimilist shoes (or barefoot shoes) are what is best for our feet to strengthen our toes and feet and ankles and will help reduce the impact on our knees and body. I have been wearing these shoes since 2009 years and have been an ambassador since 2012.
