The talk of the day has been our 16-year-old Team member Seppo Paju, who cashed in a nice 500 bucks at the Pro Worlds Distance Exhibition by shooting an incredible hole in one on his second shot. To Seppo’s surprise the basket was placed “a mere” 120m/395ft away from the pier so he couldn’t use the distance discs (DD2) he had with him. A quick stop at a Pro Shop didn’t get Seppo the disc he was looking for (PD2) but thankfully the second option, Innova’s Firebird got the job done. Congratulations Seppo!
Team Discmania & Innova member Will Schusterick was also playing hot on Thursday (and all week for that matter) and his 1061-rated round lifted him to the lead cart for Friday. Will is currently standing at the third place with 7 strokes separating him from the top position. There’s still plenty of holes to go so it’s still anyone’s game!
So yeah… We guess most of you know by now that Disc Golf World Champ 2009 Avery Jenkins is rocking Discmania plastic. Avery is not only a great player, but also an all-around Disc Golf powerhouse, who’s helped us a whole bunch in getting the word out to you guys about our terrific line of discs.
So needless to say, Avery works as a flag bearer for Discmania as a key member of team Discmania. Avery is just the type of person we want to have in our team – A great athlete and a great personality who works hard to spread the word of Disc Golf all over the world. He is an example of a great player that is easily approachable and pretty much always ready to give you tips on how to improve your game. Alongside Discmania, Avery also plays with Innova and is a member of the reputable Innova Star Team.
So which Discmania models does Avery play with you may ask? Check out this vid to see Avery in action with his new favourite go-to driver:
We’ve also released a limited Avery Jenkins signature set of C-line PD2′s that are you can find popping up on ebay and some selected retailers. Other Discmania discs that Avery uses are PD (Freak) and P2 (Psycho). Coincidentally, below is Avery rocking the P2 (Psycho) to one of the sketchiest baskets we’ve ever seen. No matter though, the basket is made with love and that’s all that counts here ;)
So yeah… If it’s not yet been established as obvious, we are VERY stoked about the new C-line that’s been out for a couple of weeks now. We are not the ones picking favorites here, but if you haven’t had the chance to make acquaintances with the PD (Freak), we think you should totally check it out. Praised as the perfect number one driver, this disc in it’s various forms (P,S,C) is so versatile there is a number of people out that basically fill their driver section of the bag with just PDs.
So without further a due: Here’s Jussi showing how to avoid a water hazard with a new C-line PD:
Another disc gathering a substantial amount of buzz around it is the all-new PD2 (Chaos), which could be easily referred as a bigger brother for the PD. The PD2 is not a choice for a beginner, but will come in handy in various situations for an experienced player. With a 12,4,0,4 -flight characteristic rating, the PD2 is made for those huge bombs, both backhand or sidearm.
Check below to see how Jussi does it:
Our Power Drivers (PD&PD2) are all about control, no matter what the weather is like outside. So if you think you could add a little control to your game, try them out! We’re pretty sure you won’t be disappointed.
