A Great Day for Disc Golf
It was a beautiful sunny January weekend here in San Diego at Morley Field. My friend and I were having a great day playing some disc golf. Everything was going great, we were at hole 4 and a threw a forehand drive, soon it veered right and went into the bushes. As I ran over laughing to pick up my disc I see a man heading straight in my direction. I knew exactly what was happening here, he had mistaken his disc for mine, immediately I knew I didn’t personalize my disc in any way and by the look in his eye and rage in his step, I knew it would be a tough convince.
How it all Started
When I went to pull the disc out he rudely jumped in front of my face and claimed the disc was his. It was a Pink Latitude 64 Gold Line Ballista. I had just gotten the disc, so like a rookie I forgot to put my name on it or personalize it in anyway. He was apparently borrowing it from a friend who didn’t have a name on it either (of course). I told him that both my friend and I watched the disc from the time it left my hand to the bush, but he wouldn’t budge. He told a long drawn out story about how his friend would “kill him” if he didn’t bring her disc back. He obviously needed this disc more than I did. I told him he could just have it and this is the moment where I decided I wasn’t going to let this happen again. Sure, I could continue to buy popular discs and write my name on them, but what happens when I run into another Kira?
Luckily, I stumbled across Fly Discs and and I knew my personalized disc problems would be solved forever! Fly Discs allows you to completely personalize your disc, which is exactly what I needed. First, you choose your own background color, gradients, patterns and stock backgrounds. Next, you add your own text and photos. You can bet my name and number is clearly printed on all of my discs. Having my own personalized collection doesn’t only make me value my discs so much more but I feel as if I’m throwing them with integrity because I know they are personalized just for me and my name is literally on every shot I make. If you are a disc golf player, you need a to personalize a Fly Disc ASAP!
Valentine’s day is probably the holiday that has the worst reputation of all the holidays out there, and possibly the only holiday that has the ability to make people sad. It can be stressful weather you are single, or happily taken. Grandiose expectations portrayed in movies, advertised in storefronts and on T.V. also promote that spending money=love.
We believe that thoughtful, personal, and fun gifts that don’t cost a fortune are the way to go, especially for this “Hallmark Holiday”. A custom Valentine’s Day disc golf disc or ultimate frisbee is the perfect little something for the disc golf or ultimate player in your life! The real meaning behind the Holiday is not about fancy dinners and chocolates, but love. Love between two people is unique, special and personal so shouldn’t your gift be too? With a custom V-day gift, your recipient will have a one of a kind disc and reminds them of your love every time they play and it’s a gift they will actually be excited about using!
Now, we aren’t saying that your boyfriend necessarily wants to throw around a disc with hearts all over it (not that there is anything wrong with that!), but there are tons of ways to be creative here without being cheesy or so…Valentinesey. You can upload your own favorite photo together, type an inside joke or nickname to go across the disc, upload your own artwork or choose from our many backgrounds, graphics and text options to create something totally new! A custom disc golf disc also promotes a fun activity you can do together! You really can’t go wrong with a custom disc this year!
We want to make sure you are able to customize as many discs as you want. That’s why we’ve added an entire new line of midranges and drivers for you to enjoy! If you’d like to read more about the discs and their features, read on.
Introducing the Midranges: EMac Truth, Gold Line Anchor and the Gold Line Compass
These three midranges are all very versatile and different from one another, which is why we are so excited to release them as new additions together. You may be familiar with the Regular Truth Disc, which is known for being a “true” straight flying midrange, with a moderate end of flight fade. Well, the EMac Truth is designed to have an even more stable flight than the regular Truth. The EMac Truth, like its name, is designed to Eric McCabe’s specifications as his signature disc. This disc will hold any line, and carry out a long flight (especially for a midrange) with a predicable fade.
The Latitude 64 Gold Line Anchor
The Latitude 64 Gold Line Anchor is a domey, over-stable midrange. It is great for shorter tee shots and forehand upshots. The Anchor is comparable to the Verdict or Justice, and people either seem to love it or hate it. The Anchor seems to be on the less stable side of the spectrum for an over-stable disc, which is what tends to throw some people off; however, this is the basis of it’s appeal for many others. This disc is useful for shorter drives where a disc is needed to make a long, steady turn. This disc, unlike the EMac Truth, does not hold a very straight line. Latitude 64’s Gold Line Compass is an all around great midrange you need in your bag. It will throw in whatever direction you send it. This is a great disc for any player because it is neither thin nor deep so it will fit into any hand. This stable and predictable disc was created in a collaboration with professional disc golfer Ricky Wysocki who says, “The compass will make me more confident on the course. Hyzer, straight, anhyzer; I can trust it on every angle”.
Introducing the Drivers from Latitude 64: Gold Line Spark, Gold Line Culverin, Gold Line Diamond, Gold Line Latitude Gladiator, and Dynamic Disc’s Fuzion Sheriff
In the midst of dozens of discs, it can be hard to choose! We are here to differentiate these 6 new drivers in order to help you choose the newest custom Driver to your bag! The Gold Line Spark, David Feldberg’s new signature disc is extremely dependable and the number one choice if you are looking for stability and control in any condition. This could be a great disc if you live in an area that is faced with a wide range of weather conditions. It is also great for thumbers and forehand shots. The Gold Line Culverin is designed for the more advanced player. If you are experienced, the first part of the flight will be straight and it will finish with a dependable fade. This over-stable control driver is perfect for long s-curves when you want to finish with a strong fade.
The Diamond, The Gladiator, and the Sheriff
Latitude’s 64 Gold Line Diamond is the best driver for beginners or players with a weaker arm. It is designed to have the perfect speed, turn and glide to maximize distance for weaker throwers as well as a nice rim size that allows you to grip it easily. The Gladiator is designed with David Feldberg’s influence to be a high speed disc with great glide and distance potential. It is nice and over-stable, so can also be thrown in windy conditions. Dynamic Disc’s Fuzion Sheriff is a very versatile disc that is used as a great tool for many different shots. The Sheriff can be used for long anhyzers, flex shots, straight distance shots, pure hyzers, distance shots and shot shaping shots. Whether you are new to the sport or have been playing for years, we are confident you can find room for any of these new discs in your collection!

History of Disc Golf
If you are a disc golf fanatic you may wonder about the history of the sport. Disc golf saw it’s start in 1976 when “Steady” Ed Headrick, known today as the father of disc golf, established the Disc Golf Association (DGA). A couple years previous, Headrick approached the county of Los Angeles Park and Recreation Department about installing a disc golf course. This idea would soon form into the first ever permanent course located in Oak Grove Park.
Disc Golf Course Origination and Growth
The first disc golf competition took place shortly thereafter in 1969 at Brookside Park in Pasadena, CA. It was on of the many events included the “All Comers Meet” and Jay Shelton took home the win. This competition sparked a fire in many players and was key in aiding in the growth of the sport as many disc golf players began to get more serious now that there were official competitions taking place and exponentially more disc golf courses being built. In 1982 DGA published “Pocket Guide for the Game of Disc Golf by Ed Headrick” which listed 117 US disc golf course locations. This guide served as a bible of sorts for dedicated disc golf players. This guide was instrumental for players. Before it’s publication, disc golfers had to resort to word of mouth to locate courses. Some even resorted to creating makeshift courses on their own.
By 1985 209 courses existed and were detailed in the “Flying Disc Golf Course Directory”, edited by Allen Risley and published by the Professional Disc Golf Association. The PDGA stills exists today as the main source for all disc golf information. Their directory is updated with every new recorded course and now includes a user friendly map for convenience.
Today there are over 4,00 registered disc golf courses across the United States. Take a look at the directory to find the course nearest to you and get out there! With our custom discs and equipment you will be ready to step out on any disc golf course.
