Backpacks Are a Must

I can’t stress enough how having a backpack designed to store your discs and equipment will change your life. Not exaggerating. Prodigy Discs offers two great packs  that holds up to 26 discs, plus putters, and even comes with expandable side pockets for additional space so you will never run out of room for your collection. Their backpacks are made with quality material and reinforced to maintain their shape and protect your discs. We love the additional water bottle and accessory holders so you can pop your keys and wallet into the bag

Portable Disc Golf Targets

One of the coolest things we’ve started to offer that are a must for avid disc golfers are these Prodigy portable targets that let you set up and practice anywhere. These things break down into a bag that is less than 2 feet wide, in minutes. We’ve got a lightweight practice version and a sturdier target that you can set up in any open space to create a course. They’re equipped with a flag to indicate the wind direction and speed, too.

Custom Prodigy Discs

Prodigy also offers awesome discs that, thanks to FlyDisc, you can completely customize just like any of our our home brand discs. We offer their quality drivers, putters, and midranges which you can get in bulk packs. At the end of the day, your discs are the most important part of all, and we love providing a way for you to personalize each new one you purchase.

Up Your Ultimate Game with These Custom Frisbees

One of the few sports that has remained relatively safe during all of the changing global events has, unsurprisingly for those of us who know the game, been disc golf. If you’re looking to pick up a hobby or a new activity right now, you’re fairly limited to outdoor and spacious activities. For experienced disc golfers and new players alike, this has highlighted the sport. But renting frisbees from your local course is annoying, not to mention unsettling considering life during a pandemic and the idea of using a dirty, reused disc. Now more than ever is the time to jump on these custom frisbees from FlyDiscs so you can personalize your game and stay safe!

Disc Golf in December

Oh, the weather outside is frightful! Does that make you retire your love for discgolf until Spring? In some opinions, December is the best month to play! New obstacles like snow mounds, ice, and the extreme terrain make for a way more exciting game. Not only does playing discgolf in December make for more an adventure, it also makes you a better player! Some of the best discgolf players play during all seasons so that they don’t every get rusty. Another plus to playing in the Winter, is that courses are mostly empty. You can take all the time you need to make your perfect putts. :

Tips for Playing Discgolf in December

Here are some other things to keep in mind when you’re hitting the course in December. 1. Hydrate! Always remember to drink a lot of water. Although you might not feel thirsty, it’s important to stay hydrated. 2. Dress in layers! Wearing one giant jacket can be restrictive. We suggest layering with Thermals, Flannels and a Waterproof Shell. 3. Wear proper Boots or Waterproof Footwear! The last thing you want to happen if for your feet to get wet! Wear proper boots and bring some trash bags to tie over your boots in case the terrain is extra slushy. 4. Bring Towels! This is important for wiping your wet discs! 5. Bring Chapstick and Lotion. You don’t want to suffer in the snow with dry hands or lips! 6. Be sure to play with some bright color discs! White discs will disappear in the snow. You can always design your own bright discs on our site!

Good luck and have some fun!

50 Putt Challenge

Getting bored of posting selfies and pet pics on your Instagram page? The 50 Putt Challenge is here! Brought to you by @brad_disc who started the competition on Instagram a couple months ago. Can you beat his score of 46/50 shots made in the basket from 15 feet away? We want YOU to submit your video for a chance to win your very own custom putter.

How to set up the 50 Putt Challenge

This is not as hard as it seems to set up and you certainly don’t need 50 putters like @brad_disc. You can use one, and keep getting it after every shot. First, set up a basket in the corner of the room, or yard. If you don’t have a basket, take a bucket and tilt it sideways on some sort of ledge. Be sure that whatever you choose to use for a basket, is the correct height (around 3ft tall). Now that we have everything set up, have a friend film you, or prop your phone up and film yourself putting 50 times from 15 ft away!

Submit a Video!

Submit your video by posting on your Instagram the putting video along with your score /50. Hashtag #50puttchallenge and tag @flydiscs in your post. We will select winners based on best putter and most creative video! Our winners will get to design and order their own putter on our site for FREE!

Disc Golf Graduation Party

It’s that time of year to start planning Graduation Parties. Whether you’re graduating from High School or graduating from College, it’s pretty typical to throw some sort of party for family and friends to celebrate your success. Typically, these parties consist of family and friends gathered in you backyard or party hall, eating hamburgers and discussing how old you’ve gotten and how proud everyone is of you. How sweet…What if, you mixed it up and hosted a party on a disc golf course! You could separate everyone into teams and have a friendly competition surrounding your cake and hot dogs. Here are some fun ideas to make this Disc Golf Graduation Party a reality:

Setting Up

Okay, so you’ll want to find a venue that allows for this graduation BBQ-style disc golf tournament. I suggest, going to your local disc golf course, and asking if it’s possible to host a BBQ there. If not, you’ll have to create one yourself, which is not hard. What you’ll need to do is find an open field, park or backyard. You can design your own course, numbering each hole. If you don’t already have baskets, there are ways to get creative to make your own. If you want to get professional, here are some PDGA quality disc golf baskets you can purchase. Once you have the course set up, work on creating a homebase for food and drinks. A white party tent, picnic tables, or BBQ would be a great idea for setting up the party. That way, everyone can meet back for drinks and cake after the match.

Custom Graduation Disc Golf Discs

Something that would make this party truly unique is designing custom disc golf discs for the big game. Something that showcases your successful year, or even just a great photo of your graduating class. Another idea is to make a custom disc trophy, for the winning team. You can decorate discs and write “Pete’s Disc Golf Graduation Party Tournament Champs!” There are so many cool ways to decorate your disc golf discs to make your party super memorable.

Distance Driving Shots

Mastering disc golf shots is something you can always be working on as a player. There are many videos and tools on the internet that you may utilize to help you grow strength and technique when shooting.

There are a couple techniques when driving those long distance shots. Sidearm, Backhand and overhand shots depend on a few different elements. You should always keep a few things in mind when preparing for any shot. The wind, the slope of the ground and where obstacles are just a few elements to think about before driving.

The backhand driving technique is best used when you are throwing for consistent distance. Approach your mark with an x-step, turn your hip away from the target and allow you arm to pull across your chest.  Pro Jeremy Koling provides information on the three most common techniques of  distance driving.

When attempting a side arm distance shot, you really want to make sure your palm is facing the sky through your follow. You don’t want to roll your wrist over.

Finally, the hook thumb, which is best for higher throws, is all about the grip. Make sure you have a tight grip and toss up at 12 o’ clock.

Watch the clip below to see how Pro Jeremy Koling uses specific techniques of  distance driving.

Here are some tips on how to grip your disc, and throw a distance drive:

Other Tips:

  • Video yourself throwing each shot and make note on how you can improve your positioning.
 
  • Sidearm shots are typically more successful with a more stable disc. Start by choosing a stable disc to drive with. Once you get the hang of it chance to different discs
 
  • Start by mastering your foot placement. Once you get your stance, work on your swing and wrist snap. Finally add the foot placement and swing together to create a rhythm that works for you.
