This is probably the biggest story of 2020/21 for disc manufacturers, as LØFT Discs launched the most successfully disc golf Kickstarter of all time.
Funding more than 4000% of their target (over $244,000 USD), their campaign is built around the launch their flagship putter, the Hydrogen.
Hydrogen is a putter for both putting and short range driving in disc golf. The design is optimized virtually through their cutting-edge flight path simulator to create the straightest small diameter putter possible within the PDGA, while still offering great grip comfort for both putting and driving.
The β-Solid is a plastic blend developed to combine grip and stiffness in what we find to be the perfect balance for putting. The feel is somewhere in between rubbery and chalky, and it gives you all the confidence you need to commit to a putt. This material is less durable than our α-Solid, which allows you to beat in the disc over time. The appearance is somewhat matt and comes in mostly dim colors.
Flight Ratings: Speed 1, Glide 2, Turn 0, Fade 0
This putter has been designed by the computer boffins out of Denmark, and based on our testing, they are 100% accurate. This putter flies like no other - dead straight!
The Hydrogen is very straight and can handle a lot of power. It doesn’t grab the chains well but as an approach disc, it’s pretty good. It is a deeper disc, so keep that in mind. I’d also give it a glide of 3. Fun disc!
