So, you’re new to discs and you decide to head out to the park and toss your favourite disc around, but remember that it's still on your roof from when kids threw it last summer. You carefully locate it, attempt to throw it down from the roof, marvelling at your prowess, only to find the disc fall flat only five feet from you.
There are a variety of discs for a variety of purposes in different sports, so it’s helpful to know just what you’re buying. Don’t get stuck with some cheap plastic.
THE DISC FOR YOUR SPORT
Flying Disc activities ranging from disc golf to ultimate and recreational dog play require their own styles and materials for discs. But, we have found the right discs for the right sports so you don’t have to.
Ultimate is the team sport that has over 50 years of history and is played professionally in more than 80 countries. It has become so popular that many universities and clubs have exclusive ultimate competitions.

Disc golf is the fun, innovated alternative to golf. Though it has been around for decades, it is continuing to gain traction. Instead of hitting a ball into a hole, the goal is to toss a disc into a basket, which means you may need a variety of discs to get you the results you want.
