Top Selling Discs–Q1 of 2017

Is it really April already? Hard to believe that the first quarter of 2017 has already come and gone! It has been an exciting and busy time here at Infinite Discs. The weather is warming up, and so is disc golf season! Like we do every quarter, it is time for us to look back on the top selling discs of the past three months. As I ran this report, I found a lot of surprises that I am excited to discuss! Like a new disc to reach the number two best selling disc overall, and lots and lots of new releases already claiming their spots on the top selling charts! So let’s get into the top 10 overall to start!

Top 10 Overall

  1. Innova Destroyer
  2. Discmania P2 Psycho
  3. Innova Aviar
  4. Dynamic Discs Judge
  5. Innova TeeBird
  6. Gateway Wizard*****
  7. Westside Harp
  8. Dynamic Discs Sheriff
  9. Innova Shryke
  10. MVP Atom

So on what seems to be a regular occurrence, the Innova Destroyer was the number one selling disc overall. But how about the Discmania P2 Psycho jumping 5 spots to become the second best selling disc this quarter? Also, it is worth noting that we were out of stock on max weight D-Line and P-line P2s more days than we had them in stock. If we (and Discmania) had been able to keep more of these discs in stock, it would have been very interesting to see if the P2 would have been able to finally take the top selling spot from the Destroyer. The next few spots we see some of the same names in different slots, but then we find three new names in the bottom three slots! The Dynamic Discs Sheriff was a newly released distance driver this quarter that was a big hit in the Trilogy market. Also the Innova Shryke had a successful first full quarter of sales. Then we see a name that we haven’t seen discussed here in a while, the MVP Atom. This quarter MVP released the Atom in Proton plastic for the first time, and in conjunction with that release we ran a limited edition 3-color stamp Proton Atom that was very well received and sold out within 24 hours. So I think that definitely helped the Atom‘s sales numbers crack into the top 10 overall.

Top Distance Drivers

  1. Innova Destroyer
  2. Dynamic Discs Sheriff
  3. Innova Shryke
  4. Innova Wraith
  5. Discmania DDX
  6. Innova Valkyrie
  7. Innova Firebird
  8. Innova Tern
  9. Dynamic Discs Trespass
  10. MVP Catalyst

I generally mention at this point how Innova dominated the distance driver category. And yes, most of the discs in the top 10 are Innova discs, but they gave up a bit of ground this time, only claiming 6 of the top 10 spots. The newly released Dynamic Discs Sheriff made a splash into the number two spot. It will be interesting to see how that disc fares in upcoming quarters. We see the MVP Catalyst hold onto the 10 spot it took last quarter as well, but the number 9 spot is very interesting. The Dynamic Discs Trespass is one of DD‘s original molds, and always sells well, but I don’t remember the last time it was one of the top 10 selling distance drivers. Maybe this is just another indication of the continued growth of Dynamic Discs within the disc golf market.

One other quick note from further down the chart that I think is worth noting. March 31st (the last day of the quarter) was the release date for the new Streamline Discs. The Streamline Trace ended up being the number 12 selling Distance Driver. Not bad for only being released for one day of the quarter.

Top Control/Fairway Drivers

  1. Innova Teebird
  2. Innova Thunderbird
  3. Discmania FD Jackal
  4. Latitude 64 River
  5. Innova Leopard
  6. Latitude 64 Saint
  7. Dynamic Discs Convict
  8. Dynamic Discs Escape/MVP Volt
  9. N/A
  10. Innova Leopard3

For the top 6 slots we see very little movement with just the Innova Thunderbird and Discmania FD Jackal swapping for the 2 and 3 spots. But at number 7 we see a new name to this chart, the Dynamic Discs Convict. When the Convict was first released, it was usually only available in fundraiser editions, but this quarter we saw the Paige Pierce Signature Series Convicts released. Also, the MVP Volt made a jump up from last quarter into a tie at number 8. I already mentioned how we are seeing the growth of Dynamic Discs in these numbers, but it definitely looks like MVP is once again making some waves in the disc golf world.


Top Midrange Discs

  1. Discraft Buzzz
  2. Innova Roc3
  3. Innova Roc
  4. Discmania MD3
  5. Innova Mako3
  6. Dynamic Discs EMac Truth
  7. Latitude 64 Anchor
  8. Dynamic Discs Verdict
  9. Latitude 64 Compass
  10. Dynamic Discs Justice

This quarter we didn’t see any Midrange Discs in the overall top 10 for the first time since I started writing these articles, but the Discraft Buzzz still held on to the top midrange spot (11th overall). The Roc3 took back the number 2 spot from the Roc, while the Discmania MD3 jumped ahead of the Innova Mako3 to take number 4. In the bottom half we see some mix-up with the newly released Latitude 64 Anchor jumping in at number 7. Then we see the Latitude 64 Compass jump back into the top 10 by snagging the number 9 spot. The Dynamic Discs Justice also cracked into the top 10 for the first time in a while claiming the final spot.

Top Putt and Approach Discs

  1. Discmania P2 Psycho
  2. Innova Aviar
  3. Dynamic Discs Judge
  4. Gateway Wizard*****
  5. Westside Harp
  6. MVP Atom
  7. Innova Nova
  8. Latitude 64 Pure
  9. Dynamic Discs Warden
  10. Latitude 64 Dagger

There is a new king for putt and approach discs! The Discmania P2 Psycho jumped ahead of 4 putters to claim the top spot. What was once a two horse race has gotten a lot more crowded, and it will be interesting to see how the top continues to shake out throughout the rest of the year. Most of this chart features the same names in similar spots, except for the MVP Atom jumping all the way up to number 6. It will be interesting to see if the Atom sticks around at the top, or if this was just a flash because of the Proton Atom release.

*****Now, a very important bit of detail on the Gateway Wizard that I almost forgot. This year, we introduced a new product to our site, Wizard Putter Packs. These packs allow customers to buy multiple Wizards at a discounted price, and if you add in the individual discs sold in these packs to the totals sold individually, it would put the Wizard ahead of the top selling putter, the Discmania P2 Psycho, by 5 discs sold. This is a noticeable jump in the numbers for the Wizard, and by adding in the packs, it places the Wizard back on top of the Putt and Approach category that it dominated for our first few years in business. And naturally, this would make the Gateway Wizard the second best selling disc overall for Q1.

So, what to watch moving forward? I think both Dynamic Discs and MVP/Axiom and now Streamline will be interesting to analyze in the coming months. Will they continue to build off the growth we see in the first quarter? Also, while they gave up a few slots, Innova seems to be showing that they aren’t going anywhere, with an impressive quarter from the Innova Shryke, and their new putter, the Aviar3, finished just outside of the top 10 at number 11. But will those new molds hang on? Also a disappointing quarter for Discraft, only having one disc make it on any of these lists with a few dropping off from last quarter. Will they bounce back? Only time will tell!

What do you think? Any surprises or disappointments? What do you think is the most interesting disc from this quarter? Leave a comment and let us know!
