Discraft Buzzz

The Discraft Buzzz may be one of the single greatest discs to ever be made. It’s trusted by almost every top Discraft pro on tour and for a good reason. The Buzzz is a 5 speed mid-range with 4 glide and a -1/1 turn to fade. These flight numbers give it a perfectly neutral flight path, capable of staying on any line it’s thrown on. 

Discraft Zone/Zone OS

While there are plenty of discs like it, none have perfected the overstable approach disc quite like the Discraft Zone. Discs like the Innova Toro, Westside Harp, Prodiscus Jokeri and many others have tried their best to copy the Zone’s workability and utility on the course. The Zone stands alone as being one of the most consistent and useful discs on the market, both for the forehand and backhand. Recently, Discraft released the Zone OS, an ultra stable version of the standard Zone. You can find both the Zone and Zone OS for sale on Disc Golf Deals USA, here

Discraft Nuke

No disc on tour goes farther than the Discraft Nuke. Trusted by big arm pros like Aaron Gossage, Anthony Barela and Ezra Aderhold to get them as far as possible up a fairway, the Nuke is consistently one of the farthest flying discs on the market. Coming in at a whooping 13 speed, the distance driver still manages to be workable for nearly all skill levels as it’s offered in a multitude of plastics with different flight characteristics. 

Discraft Raptor/Captain’s Raptor

Where Innova has the Firebird, Dynamic has the Felon and Discmania has the FD3, Discraft has the Raptor. Alost every Discraft touring pro carries a small stack of Raptor’s or Captain’s Raptors in their bags and for good reason. The Raptor is consistent and just like many Discraft's other discs, is offered in tons of plastic options which aid in how the disc beats in and flies. If you’re a player looking for maximum control, try the Captain’s Raptor, the mega overstable version of the already stable Raptor. We find that both fit slots in our bag and when combined give us maximum utility and confidence on the course!
