Since the development of the so called “wing” discs middle of the 80’s, I have played various brands and mostly a mix of discs from different manufacturers. We have been testing almost every new mold and type right after they have been released, and finally decided to add it to the bag or not. This procedure is still very common with most of the discgolfers.

Even though with the implementation of the “Standard  Flight Specification Numbers” (Speed, Glide, Turn, & Fade) which provided a better overview and classification of the discs, I still was not fully satisfied with my disc selection and my game. Therefore I wanted to go back to my strategy of the early days, which means: LESS IS MORE, and searching for a manufaturer, who offers a smaller range of different discs, but quality in the used plastic and in the production.

With Kastaplast from Sweden I have found the right partner and I’m more than happy to be part of their “brand team” since a couple of years. Adding up my strategy, I play Kastaplast discs exclusively. LET’S KASTAPLAST !

RASK | K1

FLIGHT SPECIFICATIONS

SPEED | 1 to 15
Speed relates arm speed to the manufacturer’s specs of a disc. The higher the speed of a disc, the more snap, spin and rotation required for the disc to perform the way it was designed and as the manufacturer describes it. Speed 15 Distance Drivers are the fastest, having the PDGA maximum legal wing width. Faster discs cut into the wind with less effort and are best when throwing up wind. Slower discs take more power to throw upwind, but they’re easier to throw more accurately and may actually go farther downwind.

GLIDE | 1 to 7
Glide describes the discs ability to maintain loft during flight. We describe this as hover. The higher the glide, the farther down the fairway the disc will carry. Discs with more glide are best for producing maximum distance. Discs with less glide are more accurate in high wind situations.

TURN | +1 to 5
High Speed Turn is the tendency of a disc to turn over or bank to the right for Right Hand Back Hand throws (RHBH) during the initial part of the flight. A disc with a +1 rating is most resistant to turning over, while a -5 rating will turn the most. Discs with more Turn are called Understable and are easier to throw making them a perfect choice for those without a lot of arm speed. Discs rated -3 to -5 make good roller discs. Discs with less turn are more accurate in the wind.

FADE | 0 to 5
Low Speed Fade is the discs tendency to hook left (for RHBH throws) at the end of the flight. Fade is rated from 0 to 5. A disc rated 0 will finish straightest, while a disc rated 5 will hook hard at the end of the flight. High fade discs are usually used for Spike and Skip shots.
