In the disc golf consumer world of buying specific molds, weights, and plastics, there exists a product which takes a different approach to disc buying. Welcome to the world of disc golf Mystery Boxes! If you are a disc golf enthusiast seeking an alternative way to add to your disc golf gear or are looking for a gift for a fellow enthusiast, this blog may be the key to unlock the thrill of the unknown.
Disc golf, which rewards consistency and precision, now has a way to bring a little more excitement and surprise to the disc-buying experience. Enter the Mystery Box. More than just a mail-call box full of discs, the Mystery Box is an adventure.
In this blog we’ll introduce the mystery box and tell you what it is, let you know about all of the options you have to get a mystery box, and tell you why you should consider getting one for yourself or as a gift.
Let the adventure begin!
What is a Disc Golf Mystery Box?
The world of the mystery box is one of surprise and excitement. If you’re not familiar with the concept, a Mystery Box (or ‘Deals Box’) is basically a package filled with discs in a variety of molds, plastic types, and stamps. Although you are told a few details about the box, such as the number of premium plastic discs, the exact discs remain a mystery to you until the moment you open the box.
Picture this: you decide on which of the many Mystery Boxes you would like to purchase, then make your order. A few days later, the box arrives, and the fun begins! Don’t be surprised if you end up with plastics and even brands that you’ve never heard of before. Mystery boxes allow you to break free from the routine nature of purchasing discs, and offer an exciting way to add to our collection.
As disc golfers, we love to try new discs and new plastics. Mystery Boxes are a perfect way to do that. By getting new discs in a Mystery Box you will find molds and plastics you might not have thought to try. Plus, it is also a very economical way to try new discs.

In this blog I will discuss the top 5 most popular, inexpensive portable disc golf baskets for 2019. I hear a lot of people talk about the expense of getting a basket as though they are about to make a major purchase. While it is certainly possible to spend many hundreds of dollars on a new basket, it is also possible to get a quality practice basket relatively inexpensively. One of the best ways to improve in this sport is to practice putting regularly, and the best way to do that is to have a basket (or two) on hand for daily practice. So, lets jump in and look at the top five most popular baskets for 2019.
Top 5 Best Portable Disc Golf Baskets for 2019
Thinking about improving your game? Check out these top-selling portable baskets:
The best-selling basket for 2019, and one of my personal favorites, is the DGA Mach Lite. This is a well-designed, inexpensive practice basket that is easy to set up and take down. It’s tough to beat the Mach Lite for portability and cost. No tools are necessary for set up. And the chains are grabby for a portable. It also comes with a bag to carry the folded basket. I’ve had mine for about 5 years and it is still in good shape. The Mach Lite is a great basket if you will be transporting it from time to time.
The next most popular portable disc golf basket is the MVP Black Hole Pro. The Black Hole Pro is a basket that is easy to set up and take down without tools. It has two rows of 12 chains to catch and hold your disc. The Black Hole Pro is a great example of getting a well-made basket at a reasonable price. The Pro is nearly the same quality level as a course basket. It is great if you want a good, grabby basket to practice with, and also want a great basket to use for temp holes during leagues or tournaments.
The third best selling basket is the little brother to the Black Hole Pro, and that is the Black Hole Practice basket. This basket is has lighter chains and no upper band compared to the Black Hole Pro. The Practice is lighter and easier to move around, and for a practice basket it is still grabs discs quite well. The Black Hole Practice is good for using at home, and occasionally using it as a temp basket.
The Axiom Pro basket is a great choice, offering quality and portability at a good price. It is powder coated and comes in bright colors. The Axiom Pro easily sets up and breaks down without tools. The heavy duty chains provide good disc-grabbing power. The Axiom has 24 chains, and is another basket to consider if you want to practice at home, but still use as a quality temp basket for leagues or tournaments.
Rounding out the top five portable baskets is the Dynamic Discs Recruit. This beefy basket is slightly larger than most practice baskets. Its two rows of chains will stop a speeding disc in a hurry. To aid in moving the basket around, the base has a wheel attached. While the Recruit is priced higher than the rest of the top five, it is also the sturdiest and heaviest. It does need tools to take it apart to move, and it is heavier to lift once disassembled. However, it does come apart relatively easy. The quality of the Recruit is exceptional. To be that well-built and sturdy at that price point is impressive. I’ve spent many hours putting on a Recruit, and I love the basket. It’s a great basket if you want a top-of-the-line quality at a reasonable price and you won’t be breaking it down frequently. If you are looking for something that you can transport frequently, I would consider something a little smaller/lighter.
It certainly is a good time to be in the market for a portable disc golf basket. The quality of the available baskets at the low price points means you can get a basket to improve your game without spending a ton of money. Check out our selection of baskets today and get on your way to lowering your scores.
Over the last few years, we have seen an increasing interest in disc golf mystery box deals and package sets which offer a bulk lot of discs at a low cost. Many of those mystery box deals on the market offer a selection of discs by a single brand. However, here at Infinite Discs, we wanted to built a selection of bulk lots and mystery “Deals Box” deals that featured a wider variety of discs by multiple brands. That way we could target the more adventurous players. If you love to explore and throw a mixed bag, these deals boxes are for you.
DISC GOLF MYSTERY BOX DEALS
Whether you only want to explore a handful of discs, or you want a whole pile, Infinite Discs has several choices to fit your mood and budget. These deals boxes can contain a mix of discs with stock stamps, misprints, and tournament stamps. All discs will be new, but may not all be stock stamp editions. Here is a look at the package deals currently available at Infinite Discs:
This is a small mystery box deal that features only a handful of discs to check out. It can features discs from multiple brands. However, with only 5 discs, the variety won’t be as large. This box will contain the following:
Three drivers including overstable and understable models
Of the five discs in this Junior box, two of the discs may be in budget, base plastic, and the other three discs will be in a premium or durable plastic blend. Though the package set is called “Junior” because of its size, it should not be assumed to be easy-throw discs for young players. The discs will generally be fine for players of any experience level to use.
This is by far the most popular mystery box on the Infinite Discs website. This is a 7-disc collection that will instantly build your bag with a variety of discs from different brands. This box will contain the following:
One or Two Mid-Range Discs
At least one understable driver
At least one overstable driver
Discs from at least 3 different manufacturers
Of the seven discs in this Deals Box, none will be in base plastic. The putter or one of the other discs may be in mid-grade plastic, as preferred in most putters, and the rest will be in premium or more durable, long-lasting plastic blends. The weights of the discs may vary. Again, this is a great variety of discs in a single package with a variety of uses on the disc golf course.
If you are even more adventurous, or you have a bigger budget, then consider the 12-disc XL deals box. This is another mystery box that is popular as a gift idea since it provides maximum anticipation and surprise for any disc golfer who loves trying new discs. Once again, it will contain a mix of different disc brands. This XL box will contain the following mystery discs:
At least three mid-range discs
Seven drivers ranging from understable to overstable
Discs from at least 3 different manufacturers
Just like with the regular Infinite Deals Box, this larger version will not contain discs in base plastic, but will contain putters (or sometimes a mid-range) in a mid-grade plastic. Putters and approach discs are often popular with more grip. The rest of the discs will be in durable, long-lasting premium plastic blends.
This is the largest disc golf mystery box offered by Infinite Discs. It has 15 discs from a wide variety of brands but also includes a large disc golf bag to carry them around the course. If you really want to surprise a disc golfer with a fantastic gift, then this is great way to do it– especially if the player is new and wants to try a lot of discs while needing a bag as well. It can also be a lot of fun for disc golf clubs where a lot of prizes are needed at a low price. This deals box includes the following:
Two or Three Putters
Three to Five Mid-Range Discs
A Variety of Drivers from Understable to Overstable
Discs from at least 3 different manufacturers (usually more)
A large shoulder-strap disc bag
The discs included will not be in base plastic, but there may be two or three putters or mid-range approach discs in mid-grade plastic for better grip. The rest of the discs will be in durable, long-lasting premium plastic blends for long term use.
The newest addition to our mystery box selection at Infinite Discs is the 5-Disc Budget Box. This one differs from the Deals Box Jr because it is entirely focused on discs in base plastic. It’s meant to be a very inexpensive way to get a few discs for a new disc golfer. Like with the Deals Box Jr, the set includes a putter, a mid-range disc, and three different drivers. It is the kind of box that you can hand to anybody who wants to get into the game and they’ll have the basic tools they need to get started at a very low cost. That’s 5 discs at a retail price of only $29.99, which adds up to only $6 per disc. It will feature a variety of manufacturer brands for a variety and the discs will switch up from time to time, just to keep things interesting.
Perhaps the disc golf mystery boxes are not your style? If you’re a player that perfers to know more specifically what you’ll receive, then we can help you with that as well. Aside from popular disc golf starter sets which are geared toward new players, there are also some brand-specific package sets for players with a more focused taste. Let’s take a quick look at some of those brand-specific starter sets and Infinite Discs package deals:
MVP ELECTRON STARTER SET – The MVP brand is unique with their overmold “gyro” technology rims, and this is a starter set for those who want to try that unique disc design. The electron plastic is a softer, more affordable blend.
MVP PREMIUM STARTER SET – The MVP brand is unique with their overmold “gyro” technology rims. This is a starter set with more durable plastic. Though more expensive, the discs should last a lot longer.
DISCRAFT DISC GOLF SET – This is another very popular starter set in the market with easy-to-throw, lightweight discs including a putter, mid-range, and driver.
DISCRAFT DELUXE DISC GOLF SET – This is a step up from the other Discraft starter set because it adds another driver for disc variety and a small disc golf bag to carry your discs around the course.
LATITUDE 64 ADVANCED STARTER SET– If you don’t need light weight or easy-throw discs, but want to start with discs appropriate for intermediate players, this is the set for you.
INNOVA DX GLOW STARTER SET – If you want to try playing in the dark with a set of basic glow-in-the-dark discs, Innova now has a set for you, including a popular putter, mid-range, and driver.
ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT STARTER SET FOR KIDS – This is a set of three very basic discs including a putter, mid-range, and driver. But they are extremely lightweight for young children who want to join their parents or older siblings on the course.
LEGACY 2-DISC SET – This is another very basic pair of discs including a mid-range and distance driver in base plastic. The two discs are appropriate for players with strong throwing arms and some experience who just want to try out a couple popular discs by Legacy.
INFINITE DISCS 8-DISC LINE-UP – If you want an excellent deal on a complete set of discs from the Infinite Discs brand, this is a perfect way to dive in. For one low price, you can grab a collection of putter, approach, mid-range, and drivers in quality plastic blends.
COMPLETE DISC GOLF SET WITH SLINGER BACKPACK – This is another collection of 8 different discs from the Infinite Discs brand lineup, It also includes a Disc Slinger backpack to carry around your new collection. Any player would have everything they need with this package set.

Players are always looking for the best disc golf bags. As the disc golf season winds down for 2019, we thought it would be great to look back at the year and see what products and accessories were the most popular. That kind of information can come in handy for people looking for a gift for the disc golfer in their life. Or for someone considering making a purchase for themselves.
We are going to start with a very popular genre of disc golf bags, the Economy Disc Golf Bags. These are entry level bags that are good not only for people just starting out in the sport, but great for die-hard golfers who want to play a quick round, or who want to improve their game by throwing a round using only a couple discs. These bags are relatively inexpensive, ranging in price from $19.99 to $79.99, hold a decent amount of discs, and usually have room for a drink and some snacks. Once most of us have been in the sport for a while, we carry enough discs that the economy bags are not an option for regular use. Especially with the necessity to carry food and water during long rounds and tournaments. But, even when you move to a bigger bag, as mentioned, opportunities still arise to use the smaller bags. Let’s take a look at the top sellers in this category, in order of popularity.
Top 5 Inexpensive Disc Golf Bags
If you’re looking for a great low price disc golf backpack, consider from our top selling list:
Leading the pack (pardon the pun) is the popular Dynamic Discs Trooper. At $39.99 the Trooper is not the least expensive in the category, but it holds more than the rest on the list. It can carry about 18 discs in the main compartment and 3-4 discs in the upper compartment. It has a water bottle holder, and a little bit of storage for snacks, etc. The construction of the bag is good, ensuring a long life on the disc golf course. The bag comes in several colors.
The next most popular disc golf bag on the list is the Infinite Disc Slinger. This pack is perfect for the beginner or experienced disc golfers who want to to play a round with variety of discs, but not all of their throwers. It holds about 10 discs, and can handle larger discs like the Condor. The single-sling design can be adjust for either shoulder. It has a drink holder for your water bottle and a pocket for miscellaneous items. The Slinger is at the low end of the category price scale at $19.99.
The third most popular Economy Backpack Bag is the Infinite Stealth Bag. This popular bag is a kind of a niche bag. With only room for up to eight discs, the Stealth Bag is perfect for speed rounds, tough mountain courses, traveling light, or rounds using only a few discs. Though minimalist by design, the Stealth still has a water bottle holder and a pocket for snacks, phones, etc. The sleek bag even has a version with a two-liter water bladder to keep you hydrated as you play. The regular Stealth is the model that earned the third place spot, while the bladder version came in sixth place. The Stealth runs $29.99 for the regular bag, and $37.99 w/bladder. As of this posting, we are out of the Stealth and Stealth w/Bladder. We don’t anticipate getting more until 2020. Watch our weekly newsletter for updates.

As we take a look at the disc golfers in our lives and try to imagine what they could possibly need or want as a gift for the holiday season, or for birthdays, or just because we love them, it can sometimes be difficult. We see them trudging across courses with a bag loaded with discs, and we see their car trunks or bedroom floors covered with all those extra discs that they can’t fit into the bag. We are left to wonder, what more could they possibly need? First of all, remember that gift giving is not always about “needs” but about that little extra item that they would appreciate. It is about going that extra mile for somebody we love. So, let’s take a quick look at some of the possibilities that you may not have considered when it comes to finding the perfect gift for your disc golfer.
INEXPENSIVE GIFTS AND STOCKING-STUFFERS
Dirt Bags – Who wouldn’t want a gift called a “dirt bag”? These grip bags are becoming more and more popular with disc golfers who want to keep their hands dry and ready to grip their discs with more confidence. It helps those sweaty palms and slick fingers prepare for the upcoming throw. You can actually get many bags intended to do the trick, including Sportsacks, Whale Sacs, Chalk Bags, or Confidence Bags.
Zen and the Art of Disc Golf – This little book has become a sort of cult classic among disc golfers. It teaches players how to come to terms with their game, overcome their weaknesses, and reach a peaceful state of mind when out on the course. If your players loves good advice and tips for improving their mental approach to the game, then this could be a great gift for them.
UV Flashlight Glow Disc Charger – As we head into winter months where the daylight hours are much shorter for a lot of regions, some players still want to play in the dark. Glow disc golf is actually quite fun, adding a new twist to the game we all love. There are many disc models available in glow plastic, and nothing charges those glow discs faster than a UV Flashlight. Regular flashlights can take much longer to charge glow plastic, but this powerful LED UV Flashlight makes them shine almost instantly. It also quickly charges glow stickers and glow tape.
UFO Glow Tape Rings – If a disc golfer has favorite discs that they insist on throwing at night, even if they aren’t made of glow-in-the-dark plastic, then these UFO rings are perfect! Each sheet has different sized sticker rings that can be placed on any disc to turn it into a glow disc. Light up three or four discs per sheet with the different sized rings. These stickers light up instantly with a UV Flashlight, and hold a charge for a long time. Take those favorite discs and play in the dark!
Infinite Discs Bomber T-Shirt – The “Bomber” stamp from Infinite Discs was extremely popular on many disc models from several manufacturers. Now the stamp design is available on a t-shirt for those players who like to model their love for Infinite Discs, or who simply like to be known as a player that can really bomb a disc across the fairway. These heather red t-shirts are available in several sizes and at an inexpensive price of only $11.99 as a great gift idea.
Indoor Pocket Disc – This fun little novelty disc can be shoved into a package with any other gift, into a pocket, or into a stocking. It’s a great idea for a disc enthusiast that gives them something to throw around the house when it’s just too darn cold to go outside. They can target items around your home without causing damage, and it flies much better than you’d expect. Pull it out of your pocket and let it rip!
Aside from those items, you can always choose from a large variety of mini discs or “mini markers” that come in handy during tournament play, or just as a collectible. Plus, there are all kinds of little accessory ideas as well as a variety of apparel, like hats, shirts, wristbands, etc. that you can give to your disc golf enthusiast.
MODERATELY PRICED GIFT IDEAS
Maybe you want to spend a little more on a gift for your hopelessly addicted disc golfer, but it’s a struggle to come up with an idea that will really surprise them. Here are a few things to consider.
Infinite Deals Box – For only $67.88, you can give your favorite disc golfer something that they can never get enough of…more discs! But this is different than grabbing discs off of a store shelf, because this box comes with an element of complete surprise. The deals boxes feature seven discs in premium plastic, including a putter, mid-range discs, as well as overstable and understable drivers, including limited editions, funky misprints, and other really cool discs that they might never have thrown before. Plus, the price amounts to less than $10 per disc, which is a great deal no matter how you slice it for high-quality plastics. It gives them something new to explore, making it a disc golf adventure in a box.
Black Hole Mini Basket – The basket which serves as the target, or “hole” for disc golfers is about as iconic as it gets– it is the image that represents the sport. That is why the new trend of mini baskets is becoming very popular among those who love disc golf. No, it is NOT a functioning basket that would go in your yard or in a park. Regular sized discs can’t even stay in this thing when they hit the chains. This is a basket that is A) designed as a decorative tribute to the sport you love, and B) is a full-metal replica of an actual basket which can catch mini discs / mini markers, just for fun. So, you can get one of these things for your disc golf fanatic, and it will add a decorative element to their favorite room or man cave, plus you can throw in some mini discs that they can putt from the sofa, and they’ll think it is awesome. You could also get the extra-small, Micro Basket which won’t even hold mini discs, but it fits perfectly on a work desk as a symbol of their favorite sport and a reminder of where they’d rather be…on the course.
Prodigy Practice Bag – Of course, the disc golfer in your life has a bag to carry his or her discs, or they have a backpack that they absolutely love. But regardless of what they are using to carry discs around the course, they probably have a lot of extra discs laying around somewhere, maybe even scattered in a space that you would rather not see piled with plastic. This is the perfect, affordable bag (only $24 each) for storing those extra discs! It is made merely to store large quantities of discs in a simple, compact bag that can be moved from one place to another, or tucked into a car trunk or closet. It will help your disc golfer be more organized when it comes to storing their endless supply of discs.
Disc Gator – The Disc Gator is a simple, yet brilliant idea as a disc golf accessory that almost every player has wished to have at some point during their games. It is a telescopic pole with a rigged clamp that attaches to the end. It is used to reach as far as eleven feet into the pond, creek, prickly bushes, or tree branches to grab a disc that would otherwise be unreachable.
DiscDiver Golden Retriever – Here is another device that is specifically designed to retrieve discs from water hazards. The Golden Retriever sinks straight to the bottom and has a long line which can be used to drag it back to shore. It may take several tries to actually catch the disc and drag it back, so it is a bit like fishing…a game in itself…to retrieve that disc. But it ultimately saves a lot of money (not to mention keeps the clothing dry) when the player is able to pull their discs out of the water.
Nite Ize Flashflight LED Night Disc Golf Set – Perhaps you’re looking for a gift that will allow your beloved disc golfer to play at night in a fun, exciting way. This three-disc set will do the trick! It includes a putter, a mid-range, and a distance driver disc that all come with built-in LED lights that can either be set to a single color, or to rotate in “disco mode”. The discs actually fly quite well and are very easy to spot in the dark. It’s a great gift idea for the disc golfer that wants to take their night game a step beyond glow-in-the-dark plastic.
GO AHEAD…BLOW THE WAD
Zuca Backpack Cart – If the disc golfer you love already owns their ideal backpack, but the whole cart trend is making them feel like they’re being left behind, you can upgrade that backpack by giving them this Backpack Cart by Zuca. You simply push your backpack into the cart frame, and you’ve got a new cart! The player no longer needs to carry that backpack around the course, but can simply push or pull their huge selection of discs around the green like a pro. The backpack cart sells for $194.99 and for only $100 more, you could just pick the perfect color combination for a new, fully built Zuca Cart and they can throw the old backpack away.
Luxury E3 Bag – The E3 is the latest and greatest professional level backpack from Latitude 64. It can hold around thirty discs and has all of the extra pockets, straps, drink holders, and putter pockets that a player needs to carry all of their discs and accessories. It is available in many nice color schemes and is actually quite comfortable to wear considering the size of the bag.
There are quite a few nice backpacks available, if you’re looking for something more suited to your disc golfer’s tastes.
