2017 Ace Race Disc has a name: Sting

If you played in last year’s Ace Race, the disc has a name Sting and was PDGA approved on Nov 7, 2017.

Marketing speak:

“The global Ace Race evaluates a new Discraft prototype each year with the help of 20,000 testers, and last year the players were once again pleased with the results. The design goal was to create a disc that is easy to control, holds an almost perfect line on all throws, and fits comfortably in most hands. The Sting achieved all of this.

Here’s what the disc can do:

  • Holds an almost perfect line on big throws
  • Even new players can hold an anhyzer line with long glide
  • Rip it for high-speed hyzer flip drives
  • Delivers long flights to reach maximum distance

Stability rating: 0.0 | Available weight range: 160-174 | Suitable for all players” – by Discraft

Vibram Disc Golf exiting Disc Golf

This is bad news, not good to see a multi-product manufacturer abandon Disc Golf, but it’s especially bad news for people who like their discs. We will be trying to put together a final order for those who want some of their last runs.

Vibram Announcement

Text from the image:

Greetings Vibram Disc Golf Dealers,

We have made the very hard decision to exit the sport of disc golf. We feel that the sport of disc golf deserves more attention and effort than our business is able to provide, given the volume of resources needed for the much larger segments of our business. We have had a hard time developing a disc golf focused business unit that can offer the product lineup, marketing efforts and event support needed to properly support the sport of disc golf in the role of manufacturer.

We do have enough raw material on-hand to create some unique multi-colored discs as ‘final run’ discs but would need to hear from you with PO’s in order to meet the minimum order quantities (600 unites) to manufacturer a limited run of these. If this is something that you have interest in, please let me know.

We truly appreciate your partnership in our disc golf business and believe that in the end, this is the very best direction for us as a brand, no matter how hard of a decision this has been.

Best Regards,
Jeff

Exobot 1 First Contact

Exobot 1 First Contact

We’ve been teasing this for weeks through social media, and if you look back through our old unboxing videos you’ll find mentions, and hints, but now it’s finally here: RELEASE DAY!

Exobot 1 First Contact – is a Disc Cellar exclusive design produced by DoubleRam Disc on Innova discs. This is the first release in what we expect to be a series of designs. This first release is available in 4 models:

  1. Limited Edition – Innova Star Aviar3, all discs are numbered, bagged with header that includes artist signature, First Contact story and disc number (38 produced)
  2. First Release – Innova Star Shryke (20 produced)
  3. First Release – Innova Champion RocX3 (20 produced)
  4. First Release – Innova XT Nova (25 produced)

These stamped beautifully and will work equally well as collectors or throwers.

When it first appeared, there was awe and wonder. It stood amongst us, unmoving, cold, and silent. This way it remained for most of a generation. When the mute sentinel abruptly began to make it’s presence known, the world’s revelry at not being alone in the Universe came to an abrupt and terrifying end.

Why are we calling this a “First Release”, because we reserve the right to re-print the stamp in the future, subsequent releases will be Second Release or Second Editions. There may be future limited editions (they would be different and distinguished from these ones). The goal here is to have a beautiful stamp, to have it be collectable, to tell a story, launch a series, but also to be able to reproduce the early works in the future so that those who miss out, or find the Exobot later will have an opportunity to own the entire collection, they just may be mass market models instead of these first editions.

Introducing Canada’s first Disc Golf subscription box! The Disc Cellar is pleased to be bringing a subscription box to Canadian Disc Golfers for the first time!

Our subscription options are simple and varied to suit your circumstances:

In addition to those two flavours, you have the option of:

These larger options exist for two reasons: people who want to get more than one of the monthly disc(s) and/or accessories, or who have friends who also want to get the subscription and want to save on shipping.

We’ll be kicking things off with a beautiful custom stamp (which we won’t be revealing before the boxes are delivered). The first 40 subscribers will be getting an exclusive collector edition ($30+ value), and the stamp may be available to non-subscribers towards the end of January if we do not sell out.

For subscribers who want to save even more on shipping, we’re adding a shipping option that allows you to add your purchases to your upcoming subscription box. Discs shipped with this option will ship free with your next subscription box.
