Default Yikun Sports. New disc company from China.

Anyone know anything about this company and how to buy their discs? Are they available in the US? Some of their discs look interesting. http://www.yikunsports.com/en/view.html

Now this sounds like the speed 11 disc I've been dreaming of. Finally, trees no longer a factor.

鵕鸟 JUN NIAO (a big sparrow hawk)
JUN has a thick and strong rim. Its high speed and steady glide can match for any conditions as expected. In addition, it is able to get through obstacles like trees.

I understand that you do not support Chinese products/work practices but I can assure you that Yikun discs are top notch and manufactured quite conventionally. Eric, their ambassador for DGCR, is an awesome guy with a huge passion for disc sports.
I have all three of their current discs are they all are very, very solid.

If you can get past the stigma that is Chinese made products, your game may benefit from these consistent flying molds.

At least these should be cheap. Star quality and DX pricing!

I'd say Yikun is using good old fashioned hard work ingenuity to sell products. They're going about it the right way. Their plastic feels top notch if you have any interest, Eric gave out his Skype name and is always willing to talk.

If you want to stick to US only plastic, that's fine. But I'd be willing to bet we all have discs that have used Chinese plastic pellets. More sweet Yikun discs for the rest of us
