The 14 Best Roller Discs In 2024

Ready to roll? We've pulled together the best roller discs ever made into this list to help you build your bag. 

If you haven't tried yet you might consider throwing rollers to be difficult. Some strange trick shot for pro players. It's actually really easy! With the right discs and a couple of hours, you'll have it mastered!

It's not just a cool shot either! Rollers can be incredibly useful when the course throws an unexpected curveball at you! To throw great rollers consistently you're going to need the right discs. Read our list to learn which discs are the best for rollers in 2024!

What Distinguishes The Best Discs For Rollers?

This list is targeted to backhand rollers so the most important feature is understability! All of these discs are really flippy so it's easy to have them hit the ground at a good angle! Naturally flipping an understable disc rather than throwing something stable with lots of anhyzer allows the disc to fly further before it even starts to roll!

Some of these discs are faster drivers helping you to roll past your distance record, others are slower for tricky and touchy get-out-jail situations!

Why Throw Rollers?

Rollers can be real life savers in a number of situations out on the course. The main reasons people throw backhand rollers are for more distance and to avoid low ceilings!

You might be surprised to hear that rollers can travel further than your air shots! You just need a clear fairway with short grass and preferably hardish ground!

In our opinion rollers are most useful on holes with a low ceiling! You can take the overhanging obstacles right out of the equation by simply sending your disc along the ground.

Do keep an eye out for obstacles such as long grass, rocks, roots, and the like. These can stop a roller in its tracks, or worse send it way off course!

Choosing The Best Roller Disc For Your Bag

man who can't decide which roller disc to put in his bag

Wow, considering we were only looking at the best of the best that's still a pretty long list! If you can't make a pick consider the following points.

  1. Do want to throw rollers for maximum distance or for low-ceiling shots? For long rollers use distance drivers, and for low ceilings use a midrange or a fairway driver.
  2. How easily do you want your disc to turn over and roll? If you prefer to use some anhyzer and force the angle then use faster discs. If you want something that you can release flat and have it turnover into a roller by itself go for the slower discs on this list. Note that this is useful for low ceilings as you won't have to throw as high!
  3. Do you prefer a specific brand of discs? That's a more than good enough reason to pick one of these discs. After all, they're all really good for roller shots!
  4. Do you or any of your friends have a pile of battered-up old base plastic discs? Try them out! One of them may just be the perfect roller! Keep an eye open for a DX Leopard!
