If you played in last year’s Ace Race, the disc has a name Sting and was PDGA approved on Nov 7, 2017.
“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
Good luck to all the Canadians playing in the Las Vegas Challenge this week, and a special good luck to Michael Ramanauskas, Team Disc Cellar member and the artist behind the Exobot.

Got a Discmania restock coming, along with a bunch of the P2 Sky God. Thought we’d try something different and post what’s coming in advance of the arrival. They should be here end of next week (beginning of March)Items of particular interest are highlighted:
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.

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.
