- Which disc do we advise for using in throwing and catching?
It depends on your age which frisbeedisc you can use best. For adults and kids over 10-12 years old we advise the 175 grams Daredevil Ultimate Discs. They are all standard gamediscs with the same weight and mould. If you are young, a lighter weight disc generally throws easier. But with gaining experience and age, you soon will be using the 175 grams disc. That is why we advise the 175 gram discs for age 10-12 and up.
For kids younger than 12 we advise to use a lighter disc, depending on your physical development and throwing abilities. Check our Kids Discs, in the left menu, under throw and catch. The 125 gram disc is advised for anyone age 7 and up. The 110 grams DDC disc is advised for kids age 5 or 6. If you are looking for a serious disc that is.
And we have the Aerobie Rings off course. People of all ages throw easily with these, even infants age 2 or 3. If you are 5 or younger, use the 10” Ring. When you are older, the 13” ring is best.
- With which disc can I throw far?
We get this question often. It is fun standing 80 meters apart and throwing something to each other with accuracy. Generally, a fast disc is flat, and therefore not stabile in flight, but flies very far, with less accuracy than a deeper disc. A flat disc turns easily when flying, making an angle. Take care of your safety when throwing, and make sure other people cannot get hit by your disc.
Gamediscs Ultimate: These discs are meant to throw and catch and to play Ultimate Frisbee of course. They are stabile in the air and do not turn or fade, when given enough spin. You can throw several flight patterns and use several different grips with these discs. When you play Ultimate on a higher level, an 80 meter throw can be done. Because this disc is catchable, it is deep and has more air resistance than a flatter disc. Therefore it flies more accurate than far.
Aerobie rings: for beginning throwers these rings fly farthest, but it is not a real frisbee. It is a very nice toy though. For adults: use the 13” ring. Make sure you have the space for throwing. These discs have the tendency to hang in trees and get lost easily in the surf, when you play on the beach. They are very vulnerable for a slight breeze, and therefore not very accurate on the longer distance, especially for beginning throwers.
Discgolf discs: Discgolf discs are meant to play discgolf, not for throwing and catching. Even the putters can hurt you or someone else. They are smaller and less deeper than the Ultimate Discs, and you must really learn top throw these discs. A slight difference in the angle of release, and these discs change their flight pattern dramatically. Having said this, a distance driver for discgolf flies the farthest, when you practice hard. Take care of the safety of others when using these discs though. The rim is often hard, and you do not want to hit somebody in the head with it. When you are a beginning player, practice long throws with a putter first, before going onto using a distance driver.
- I want to buy Ultimate gamesdiscs my school. What do you advise?
See our answer under “Which disc do we advise for using in throwing and catching?”. If you want to play discgolf in school, it is nice to know we have very nice poleholes and putter discs for the best price you can get in Europe. Just contact us by e-mail for these items.
- What are the shipping costs for my order?
Shipping costs are generated by our website automatically when placing an order. The costs depend on on size and weight of the parcel. It is a very complicated calculation, which is impossible to show in a table here for all English speaking counties.
What we can say about the shipping costs is that they are generally devided into the following categories:
|1 Aerobie 10"||Normal postage|
|1 Discgolf frisbee of dogfrisbee||Normal postage|
|1 Aerobie 13"||Parcel|
|1 Ultimate disc of Freestyle disc||Parcel|
|Above 2 kgs (number of discs)||Higher parcel price|
|Above 5, 10, 20 or 30 kgs||Slightly higher again|
Shipping Ultimate Discs is always done as a parcel. An Ultimate disc does not fit though the standard letter box. Discgolf discs and dogdiscs do fit through, and therefore shipping for these discs is less expensive when you order 1 piece versus 2 pcs. (normal postage).
In getting to know the shipping costs of your possible order, just make an order and you will get a quote automatically at the end of the ordering process. If the shipping is too much in your opinion, just: don’t pay us! We do not ship goods that are not paid in advance.
So you are welcome to place several orders, and play around with your order until the shipping is to your satisfaction.
We ship to all countries. There are different fees per country depending on weight and size of the parcel you order.

- Which dogdiscs are accepted in dogfrisbee competitions?
When it comes to dogfrisbee, there are many products out there, and to make it complicated, there are also different tournament organisers. Some discs cannot be used for some of these tournaments, where in others other discs cannot be used.
Organising parties are UFO, USDDN of SKYHOUNDZ. Dogfrisbee is usually not incorporated in the National Frisbee Associations. We think this can hopefully change in the future, so they can bring their rules and regulations together to make it into a unified, happy dogdisc world.
We chose to only sell the discs that are accepted with all associations.
