Black Friday Frisbee Golf Deals

Do you love Black Friday Deals?

Do you, or a loved one of yours love Frisbee Golf?

This is your guide to Black Friday Disc Golf Deals. This post will be updated as we find out more deals, but here is what we know so far.

Mystery Deals Boxes

One of the best ways to get a lot of plastic for your dollar is with a mystery or deals box. Here are a couple of the ones I recommend.

Discraft Mystery Box

The Discraft Mystery Box is by far the most screamin' Black Friday disc golf deal in all of disc golf. You get a pack of 10 discs (mostly misprints, but often some collectible discs too) for about $5 each.

Infinite Deals Box

While the value isn't quite as impressive as the Discraft Mystery Box, the quality is better, especially if you aren't a friend of Discraft frisbee golf discs. The fun thing about this box is that you are guaranteed a variety of discs from a variety of different brands. The Infinite Deals box is also designed to be a "move up pack" from a starter set and guarantees you a putter, midrange,  understable driver, and overstable driver to give you a full bag of frisbee golf options.

7 Premium Plastic Discs - $62.99

Individual Frisbee Doorbuster Deals

Infinite Discs has black friday deals all week long featuring a different disc manufacturer each day.

I-Blend Discs - $9.99. For all of black Friday weak. I-Blend is my favorite disc golf plastic for drivers. It is soft and grippy and glides sooo far.

Trilogy Day - Thursday. 
Infinite Discs will have select Premium Plastic Frisbee golf discs on  sale $9.99 -- That's nearly 50% off! These include glow and MyDye discs that retail for nearly $20.

The Coolest Looking Frisbee Golf Discs You Will Ever See

I just got to see the coolest looking Frisbee Golf Discs I have ever seen. Discraft has a new "full foil" disc style that looks just amazing. While most frisbee golf manufacturers hot stamp foil on discs, Discraft makes the entire disc FOIL! This enables it to sparkle and shine with different light. Basically, these things just look amazing. I'm not sure how durable they are when thrown, but at $27 a disc, not sure many people will actually be throwing them.

Not only is the full foil amazing, but as 2019 Ledgestone Insurance Open fundraisers, these frisbees also have some sick bee themed stamps.  Because they are highly sought after by disc collectors, these discs will be hard to get your to find.  There are currently seven limited bee edition Buzzz's available.

Rovic Frisbee Golf Cart

I got a chance to test out the new Rovic RV1D disc golf cart. This is a great way to carry around all the discs you want, without all that weight on your back. It's a pretty good set up. Check out some pictures for this cart here:

The umbrella holder on this cart is legit. I can stand up full height and be protected from the rain hands free! One of the most annoying things during a rainy disc golf round is having to put your umbrella down to throw or putt. With this, your umbrella is always up. 

The handy "cell phone" holder parket is the perfect place to store your phone, keys, mini marker disc, or some hot hands for those cold fall disc golf rounds.

The cart contains a seat for those slow tournament rounds where you just want to sit down during the slow backups. The way this seat works is a little bit different as the seat is suspended by the wheel support. It only actually sits on the ground, and supports your weight once the bottom touches the ground like a one leg stool.

The seat is an optional accessory that is not included in the $199 price.

Another optional accessory is the cooler bag. This has a built in cooler that will hold your lunch, extra beverages, a few discs, or anything else giving you lots of storage to bring whatever you want on your disc golf round.

On the top right you can see the green yellow by the handlebar that acts as the brake. When down, this ensures that your cart and disc golf bag are not going to roll down the hill.

As you can see from this seemingly unnecessary wheel cover, this cart is modified from a traditional golf push cart, Rovic is a company that also makes carts for ball golf. 

And that's the whole fancy setup. If you want to get lots of compliments on the course, pick up a Rovic RV1D cart today.

Review of the New Innova Discover Bag

I took a family trip to Moab, Utah this weekend and used it as an opportunity to test out the new Innova Discover Bag.

The Innova Discover Pack is an INCREDIBLY CHEAP backpack style frisbee golf bag. It is currently the least expensive backpack style bag on the market.

As is the case with most things, you get what you pay for. And while this is an adequate bag to carry your Frisbee golf discs, it is nowhere remotely close to the quality of a more expensive back pack. All in all it is a good bag for the price and will meet the needs of many recreational Frisbee golf players.

The material of the Discover Bag is light weight and relatively flimsy. The bag itself only weighs about one pound which is a pro because of the light weight, but surely won't be as durable as heavier and more dense material. I found the bag very comfortable to wear unlike many of the more expensive backpacks I have tried. A nice thing about the light material is that I was able to fold it up very compactly which helped it fit in my car where I had limited space. While the main material is very thin, the bottom of the bag is enforced with a U-Shape cardboard enforced lining which helps the discs remain upright and will help the bag last longer in the areas it is most vulnerable to wear and tear.

The annoying thing about the flimsiness of the bag is that it easily tipped over, and did not hold my water bottle well (as evidenced in the above photos).  The course I played was hilly, so the bag tipped over easily and several times the discs spilled out. I didn't have the bag filled to capacity and perhaps that would have prevented the disc spills.

Pros of the Discover Bag

  • Incredible Value (Starter bag price for a backpack!)
  • Comfortable
  • Holds up to 18 discs (more than any starter bag)
  • Takes up hardly any space, great for travel.

Cons of the Innova Discover Pack

  • Not likely to last multiple years of use
  • Tips over easily and spills discs when on hills
Overall, if you're looking for a backpack style bag at a budget price that will hold 15+ discs, the Discover Pack is worth the investment. This bag is excellent as travel bag due to its light weight and the fact that it can fold up to take up less space.
