An official ultimate disc is always a good choice for adults (175 grams). But a lot of times you want to play throw and catch with the family and therefore need to take into account the smallest kids present.
We advise the following discs for the following age groups (ages may vary depending on physical development):
9-13: 140 grams ultimate disc (also called ‘junior disc’)
7-11: DDC disc or GUTS disc (a guts disc when you play rough, DDC discs are fragile)
5-8: Sofflite (we are currently developing a special disc for this age group)
Whatever you do, always choose a 100% PE disc, because this stays flexible and ages very slowly. Therefore it takes longer to break, especially when stored in the dark. Giveaway frisbees or “official gamediscs” that are sold for just 3 euros are crap to play with, break soon, are not made from recyclable material and need to be replaced over and over again. This is terrible for our climate. Work with us to boycot PVC Premium frisbees!
A good Frisbee is like a good leather ball: do not use on concrete, store in the dark and it should last you over 10 years.
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.
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.

Yes. we use different ways to custom print frisbees. One technique is designed for higher numbers of discs, the other is faster and feasable for just one disc, but more expensive.
The old fashioned way is using a hotplate and melting a plastic color sheet onto the top of the disc using high temperature and pressure. Hotplates are made using acid and copper, so it’s expensive. We do this in Canada, so delivery time takes long, unless you pay a lot for transport. There are also limitations on what can be printed. Only lines and small surfaces (not more than 1″ sq.), using 1 or two colors with 1 mm space in between.
Since 2020 we print in house using a specially designed UV printer. Though this process, we can print any full color design on the flat middle surface of the disc. Costs can add up to 30 euros per disc, but can be done within a couple of days with one disc only. Nice when your teammates get married or something.
If you want to become one of our resellers, send us an e-mail and state clearly who you are and what you are looking for. We can then send you a price list and sum up our conditions. We generally want to promote using high quality Frisbees, so we deliver in such a way that you will not have pressure maintaining large stock numbers.
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.
