Default Launch Disc Golf

The Eagle eyed amongst you may have seen a few new discs from a new manufacturer gain PDGA approval last week.

Launch Disc Golf is a British based company with discs made by Disc Golf Distribution (the company behind Disc Golf UK)



The discs are:

The Lander - a small diameter disc with a micro bead, incredibly comfortable in the hand and the prototype testers have fallen in love with it. Described as a cross between a Jokeri (for the distance you can get) and a Reko (for the feel) It is a straight flying disc with loads of glide and a reliable finish.

The Code - Based on the original prototype DGUK Dukes this is a fast, far flying midrange, thrown with 120 meters of power it will hold a straight line all the way, to smaller throwers it will have a straight flight with a predictable fade.

The Code X - The beefier overstable brother of the Code

Coming soon - The Cipher - a fairway driver likened to a Thunderbird in the new Alpha Premium plastic.

Added to the line up - the Cipher, a Thunderbird like driver in premium (Alpha)plastic and the Code X in baseline (Omega) with full colour stamp. we think we may be the only company doing baseline discs with full colours and they look awesome.

The Launch discs will have some fun in the stamps on coming runs.





On the DGUK front we've just launched our Halloween Glow Duchess in premium (Regal) plastic which looks pretty cool!





We've tested the glow against the best in the business Kastaplast and it shines and lasts the same (timelapse video to come)

Anywhere someone in the Us could get a couple of glow Ciphers?

My daughter is a huge Gravity Falls fan and would find these hilarious/scary.

Infinite Discs have an order on their way of a selection of the discs, none of the glows though I'm afraid.

If they have that pyramid stamp I’ll probably still get a couple. Hope you guys do really well!

Ordered the last one they had in stock last night. Looking forward to trying it out.

I’ll probably do a video on it when it comes in, of the following which do you think would be the closest comp to throw against it?

Teebird
Exodus
Eagle
Stag
Tyrant
Volt

Eagle probably, in my head it's always sat about there although is slightly faster, others that throw further have compared it to a Thunderbird. Would love to see the video! There is a definite high speed turn unlike a Teebird/Volt and a consistent fade (haven't thrown the Exodus, stag, Tyrant personally to comment)

Cipher came today! It looks just as good as in the picture and the plastic feels really nice, a lot like Neutron plastic from MVP.

A bit of a pop top which should lead to good glide l, and a very nice scooped out underside of the wing. I’m excited to see how it flies!
