Default Disc Data: Best Sellers of 2018 So Far

Hey guys, if this doesn't meet the guidelines let me know. But I wanted to share the data from the latest best sellers list I just made for Infinite Discs. If you have any questions or comments about the data I'll be around to answer and discuss!

Bigger version can be found here on the blog post.

Edit: Crap I made that pretty small.... lemme see what I can do

Interesting data... It amazes me that the Destroyer outpaces the next leading distance driver by nearly 3:1. It is also very interesting to see Innova basically owns the diver segment(at least at Infinite).

You indicated the "Top 5 Destroyer Plastic Types" but separate Star & Star X-Out... For this dataset, I would probably combine those fields since (to me) x-outs are more about price point than plastic type.

Also, I would imagine that people look in the x-out category for their specific weight/color combo if they do not see it in the standard Star Destroyer field...

Is there a peripheral benefit to segregating x-outs?

Before anyone complains, this is interesting data that I am grateful to have access to. Thanks for posting!
That said, it would be interesting to get a global dataset for the year on all manufacturers...

Good chart. Interesting information.

There are soooo many variants of the Aviar. I'd like to see that broken down into more individual molds.

Good point, maybe there's not a benefit to segregating X-Outs. The only reason is that it comes out that way in our system, but I could do a little addition and put them together. Lots of people will hunt for the X-Outs first to see if there's one they like. I think the only benefit to having them different is just to see the ratio of X-Outs to Stock discs sold.

Sure would be, but as far as I've seen nobody else is releasing data. Infinite, however, does have the biggest inventory in the World (as far as retailers go) and sells to all over the world, so we have at least a decent idea of sales around the country.

Not a bad idea, I will write this down and see if I can make a blog post breaking down the Aviar molds, plastics, and sales statistics. Thanks!

I'll never understand the Firebird. That mold would be useless for me.

What's so special about the P2?

The Firebird, useless?? I personally love the Firebird and use it on many different shots.. hell of a great disc.

And idk whats so special about the P2, but Im about to find out. I have 4 on the way from trading with some folks on here.. pretty pumped.
Im pretty sure Dave Dunipace said that the P2 is the best putter theyve ever made. Must be something special about it if Davey boi said that about them.

Just a few guesses:
1) a lot of pros use the P2, so ams use them to emulate the pros.
2) almost anyone can find some use for a P2, be it putting, upshots, throwing drives, or all of the above. I used it for upshots in the past.
3) comes in most plastics, from baseline to premium, from slick to grippy.
4) feels good in the hand and to throw, for many people.

All in all, it's just in that putter "sweet spot"

I said, for me. I rarely forehand, and when I do, I use clean form.
