Default Kastaplast Rask

Rask is a PDGA approved concept disc, made in Sweden by Kastaplast. The eye catcher of the disc is the ridge (patent pending) at the bottom side of the flight plate. Its function is to decrease drag from the inner side of the rim, and thereby make the disc more streamlined. Rask is a stable long range driver that cuts through the air fast and efficiently according to the company. More about the flight characteristics later, Rask will be evaluated during the fall of 2013.

Kastaplast is led by Jonas Lindberg, with many helpers. Jonas has played disc golf since 1992, is a designer MFA and former co-owner of the cult magazine SuperLounge. “Kastaplast is a disc golf workshop, where modern prototyping technology meets hand sculpting, and where aerodynamic simulations meet field testing”, he tells us. Kastaplast is based in Stockholm, Sweden.

Some figures for Rask:
Outside diameter: 21.1 cm (max weight 175.1 grams)
Inside rim diameter: 16.7 cm
Height: 1.6 cm
Rim depth: 1.1 cm
Rim thickness: 2.2 cm
Flexibility rating: 7.71 kg
Rim configuration rating: 26.50 mm



Where can I get one dammit also is this a swedish groove lol ?

its not a groove whatsoever. what would give you that impression? Looks to me like there is an additional ridge in the flight plate and not in the rim. but witht he color of the disc its hard to tell the subtle shadows.

I bet even if it was a groove, if it said "MADE IN SWEDEN" on it people would act like it was the best thing since sliced bread.
