In case you we’re already aware, Latitude 64, Dynamic Discs and Westside have revised some of their flight numbers. The discs themselves haven’t changed just the documented ratings, which should more closely match their actual flight than the old numbers.
Changes are highlighted with the amount of the changes listed in parenthesis.

THE BIG FLIGHT RATING REVISION OF 2018
Thanks to the feedback of our many fans we realized it was about time to take a hard look at our flight ratings. We agree with you guys, some of them has just not been accurate. Why? We have evolved! There has been two main stages for us.
2006-2011. A lot of our discs were released a long time ago. Our first discs (Sinus, Medius, Primitus) were produced 2006, and back then we rented machine time from another company. Our first very own injection molding machine touched down on the factory floor 2011. Being in full control of production gave us the opportunity to develop in ways we could not imagine. We made better discs, and some discs saw some changes along the way.
2011-2017. We will not go into full detail in public, but as we have evolved we have made some slight changes in our disc production techniques. Apart from making discs that fly great, look good and feel comfortable, we have also put great effort in making as consistent runs of discs as we possibly can. Some of our discs has seen slightly different flight characteristics because of this. Saint Pro is one example. When it was released we had some really good runs that we were happy with, but there were unfortunately also a few runs that were less satisfactory. The Saint Pro’s produced today are less overstable compared the first runs, but the consistency has improved immensely.
2018-. We now feel that we have reached a level of consistency which requires a flight rating revision. We still have a lot of work to do on this matter. Reaching 100% consistency is an utopian impossibility due to the organic material we are working with. But our goal is, and has always been, to be in the forefront of improving the quality and consistency of golf discs. You should not have to be a disc detective to replace your favorite discs.
We hope you feel we are doing a good job, and we promise that we will keep finding ways to do it even better.
The 108 year old Vancouver Golf Club announced this morning that they will be closing operations as a ball golf course and due to the demands of their members, reopening as a Championship level Disc Golf course by April 1st, 2019.
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:
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:
Limited Edition – Innova Star Aviar3, all discs are numbered, bagged with header that includes artist signature, First Contact story and disc number (38 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.
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.
