Top Selling Discs–Q3


Well, here we are again folks! Another 3 months have passed at Infinite Discs and it’s time to take a look at the top selling discs of this quarter. These have been wild months for the disc golf world. We saw a new world champion crowned and a decent dose of controversy in the professional realm of disc golf. Looking at the numbers, it is pretty safe to say that the pros who have been playing at the top during these months had an influence on the way certain discs sold. We find a new addition in the top 3 discs overall that also became a brand new champion of an overhauled chart in the putter division. So let’s get started!

Top 10 Overall

  1. Innova Destroyer
  2. Innova TeeBird
  3. Innova Aviar
  4. Discraft Buzzz
  5. Westside Harp
  6. Gateway Wizard
  7. Dynamic Discs Judge
  8. Discmania DDX
  9. Innova Roc3
  10. Innova Roc/Innova Valkyrie

Nobody should be surprised to see the Innova Destroyer held its ground as the reigning number one selling disc overall. The Innova TeeBird jumped back up to number 2 after falling out of the top 3 last quarter, and then perhaps the most surprising mold of all, the Innova Aviar jumped up to the number 3 spot. The Aviar and the Westside Harp (which makes its first appearance in the overall top 10 at number 5) can both thank their professional endorsements for their spike in sales, as the highest overall plastics of each disc were McPro Aviars and BT Hard Harps. These molds in these plastic blends are thrown regularly in tournament play by Paul McBeth and Ricky Wysocki respectively. The Discmania DDX also cracked into the overall top 10 for the first time ever. Rounding out the list we see a rare tie between the Innova Roc and Innova Valkyrie for the 10 spot.


Top Distance Drivers

  1. Innova Destroyer
  2. Discmania DDX
  3. Innova Valkyrie
  4. Innova Firebird
  5. Innova Wraith
  6. Innova Tern
  7. Innova Boss
  8. Innova Beast
  9. Westside Destiny
  10. MVP Catalyst

The DDX shows that there is a new…deputy? in town (The Destroyer being the long standing Sheriff of course) by jumping all the way up from the 10 spot it claimed in its debut quarter. If this trend continues, maybe we will see a new name at the top of this list! Besides that, Innova once again showed its dominance of this category. The Innova Firebird made a good jump up to the 4 spot (12 overall), and the top selling plastic was the Nate Sexton signature series color glow. Here again we can feel the professional influence on the numbers. Also a new name to the chart at number 10 is the newly released MVP Catalyst.

Top Control/Fairway Drivers

  1. Innova Teebird
  2. Latitude 64 Saint
  3. Latitude 64 River
  4. Innova Leopard
  5. Innova Thunderbird
  6. Discmania FD Jackal
  7. Latitude 64 Diamond
  8. Dynamic Discs Escape
  9. Innova TL
  10. Innova Leopard3

Nothing too crazy happening in the Fairway category. Some slight shifts in the top 7, while the 8-10 spots are all filled by discs that didn’t make the chart last time. The Dynamic Discs Escape and Innova Leopard3 have all seen the top 10 before, but the Innova TL, which is actually the oldest of these bottom three molds, made it into the top 10 for the first time ever. Maybe because of the growing popularity of the TeeBird? (TL=TeeBird Long).

Top Midrange Discs

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

The top 3 look identical (again), but the rest of the list did some shifting. The Innova Mako3 and Discmania MD3 bumped up a few slots, and though the Dynamic Discs EMac Truth dropped, it wasn’t much of a drop for coming off of a new release last quarter only dropping two spots at number 6. The Discraft Comet has seen the top 10 before, but it wasn’t there last quarter. Number 8 was a pleasant surprise for us The Discraft Buzzz GT is an old Discraft mold that has been out of production, but they brought it back for us to do a limited run as part of our sponsorship of the 2016 Ledgestone Insurance Open. These very unique and rare discs are only available at Infinite Discs, and once they’re gone, they’re gone. So if you’re interested, I would recommend snagging one while you still can!


Top Putt and Approach Discs

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

Now, the category where everyone at Infinite Discs would have lost some money if we were the betting type. While the Aviar and Harp surprised everyone with numbers 1 and 2 (thanks again Paul and Rick), we found another surprise in seeing the Wizard beat out the Judge for the first time since the Judge took the number one spot from the Wizard for the first time nine months ago. Another surprising jump was the Latitude 64 Dagger climbing into the 7 spot (hard to ignore the new World Champ’s influence here again). So a category that has been a two horse race for a while just got a little more interesting, and it will be a lot of fun to see what the final three months of 2016 will bring us.

Takeaways? As I mentioned, the numbers seem to say that the professional endorsements are working folks! I always skim over the Destroyer always holding the number one spot, but you really have to wonder where that disc would be if you took Paul McBeth out of the equation completely. And now we see spikes in the Harp and Dagger coming off of Ricky Wysocki’s first championship. Have other thoughts? See any surprises or trends I failed to recognize? Leave a comment letting us know what you think!



  • I believe the TL is selling because of rumors/fears that it will go OOP in the near future. Hope that’s not the case, but better safe than sorry in stocking up on them…

  • Why is the Innova Thunderbird categorized under fairway drivers and the Valkyrie is under distance drivers? They’re both nine speed (which most other companies consider fairway speed), and Innova classes them both as distance drivers. Shouldn’t they both be under the same category, whichever one that is?

    • Also, the Firebird.

    • You’ll often find speed 9’s split between distance and fairway drivers, because they’re right in the middle. It happens with other brands too. We should probably make an executive decision and stick with it 🙂

    • I personally feel that the 9 and 10 speeds should be under control drivers because they aren’t true distance drivers but they aren’t fairways either. I’d say that the Firebird, Thunderbird, Viking/Savant, and Valkerie are DD/Fairway tweeners, while the Sidewinder and Roadrunner are more of a true DD.
      I personally seem to get the most distance out of a PD which is another example of where do you put it (I say that its a Fairway/DD tweener {Fairway control with DD distance and vice versa})

  • The 9 speeds are really narrative driven too, in terms of how the companies describe them. Like the Valkyrie was advertised for a long time as the “world record distance” disc, while the Thunderbird was introduced as a “longer Teebird”. I think the general conception of what a 9 speed is good for has changed overall as well, with discs like the Saint and Volt being dubbed as “control drivers”.
