We once again got a whole bunch of answers to our final sticker spotting contest and the raffling machine picked the names of Jonathan H, Jontte O. and Clay M. as winners. Congrats to our winners and a big thank you for everyone who submitted an answer. Again sorry that we haven’t been able to answer to each of you personally, there are simply an overwhelming amount of messages pouring in.
Here’s where the sticker was hidden:
This was the final sticker spotting contest, once again a HUGE thanks to everyone who took part. We may have one little contest coming up for you guys, but now it’s time to look forward and concentrate on Stockholm Disc Golf Open that will be played at the beautiful Järva Disc Golf course this weekend. Lots of team members attending, so hopefully we’ll see you there! Here’s Seppo Paju’s thoughts about the upcoming tournament.
And we also have the Blizzard C-line out! Try them out if you haven’t already, those things go BOOM!
REINVENT YOUR GAME
Ever since we announced our upcoming Blizzard C-line, we’ve been receiving a lot of questions on when will the actual release date be. Now we’re proud to announce that the release for our Blizzard C-line models is just around the corner, as Blizzard C-line DD2 will see it’s worldwide release on Monday, June 11th. Our other Blizzard C-line model PD2, will also be released European-wide on this date. Basically the Blizzard C-line discs will hit the disc shops within a week of the actual release date.
What the new Discmania Blizzard C-line models bring to the table is definitely big distance. The tiny micro bubbles in the C-line material are what makes a Blizzard C-line disc so different from rest of the plastics out there. Thanks to this innovation, we have been able to produce big distance drivers in weights never seen before: both Blizzard C-DD2 and C-PD2 now come in weights as low as 130 grams. These lower weights equal longer drives and the low-end of the weight spectrum will especially help recreational players to reach all new distances. Blizzard C-line discs under 140 grams also float in water.
The difference between the hugely popular Innova Blizzard Champion discs and our upcoming Blizzard C-line is, besides different models, that Blizzard C-line models will be available in “tournament ready” weights up to 165grams. This gives the power players out there a chance to experience the magic of Blizzard plastic without it being too understable to control. Controllability is definitely a keyword concerning the Blizzard C-line models, as for example the DD2 has a soft turn but it’s still packed with a predictable fade giving more distance for those big flex shots.
ProTip for Blizzard C-line users
Many first time Blizzard users have a tendency to overpower their drives with the Blizzard plastic concluding in heavy turnovers and loss of controllability. This is not surprising, as if you’ve heard anything about the Blizzard discs, you’ve heard that they fly FAR. When you hold the disc in your hand you easily think that you need to go full power since it’s a maximum distance disc. Contrary to this, the key with shooting Blizzard discs is patience. Try using just 70-80% of your power and arm speed and really concentrate on a clean release. You’ll find out that you’ll get longer drives with less effort and using less power really helps keeping the disc on the line.
Deep in the Game finale approaching!
The release date for our Blizzard models couldn’t be more appropriate, as it’s the same day on which the last episode of Discmania Deep in the Game goes live on YouTube. For those of you unfamiliar with Deep in the Game, it is a free series of high quality instructional videos that has already reached well over 100 000 views on our YouTube Channel. The first 4 episodes are already out and you can find them from our Deep in the Game -page.
REINVENT YOUR GAME
There has been a lot of speculation if and when there will be Blizzard C-line release for our high-speed models. If you’re not familiar with the Blizzard technology, it’s the newest breakthrough in Disc Golf equipment by definitely the main contributor of the sport, Innova Champion Discs. The Blizzard discs utilize small micro bubbles in the rim of the disc allowing the high speed drivers to be manufactured in lighter weights than ever before.
The success of the Blizzard discs is basic physics: a lighter projectile is easier to throw far than the heavy discs most disc golfers are used to. The best part about the Blizzard technology is that despite the Blizzard discs are lighter than regular discs, they imitate the flight pattern of the heavier discs really well: For example a 150+ gram Blizzard C-line DD2 acts very similar to a 170 gram C-line DD2.
What is specifically interesting about the upcoming C-line Blizzard release is that our Blizzard models will be available in “tournament ready” weight ranges that go up to high 160′s. These higher-weight Blizzard models will specifically accomodate the distance needs of those players, who have felt the Innova’s Blizzard line-up too light and/or understable. DD2 & PD2 will be the two models that will be released Blizzard C-line in the near future. The advantage of having these two models available in lighter weight is that more players will be able to play with the fastest drivers in our selection and for the big arms there’s more distance to be gained with these two models.
Factory 2nd Blizzard C-line DD2 & PD2 available @ Innova Factory Store
There’s a limited quantity of Discmania Blizzards at the Innova Factory store. These “Factory 2nd” discs are cosmetically flawed discs that did not meet our quality standards for regular production. The flaws do not effect flight characteristics or durability of the disc. With the discounted price of 11 USD the supplies won’t last long, so go grab yours while you still can!

Innova’s Blizzard Champion plastic is responsible for a new world record in Distance. 16-year-old David Wiggins Jr. broke Christian Sandström’s old record from ten years back with 255-meter throw with a 134-gram Blizzard Champion Boss. More info on the new WR over at Innova’s blog.
