Something new for Discmania
Being a disc manufacturer, we naturally pay close attention on what type equipment disc golfers around the world use in both casual and tournament play. As many of our followers already know, we are highly involved with the DiscGolfPark -concept, which has been one of the key elements in the growth of Disc Golf in Northern Europe and beyond. Contrary to traditional concrete, the material we use for our DiscGolfPark TeePads is artificial grass. This design decision has proven not only very highly appreciated among players, but it has also slowly turned to a standard in all new Disc Golf course projects in Europe.
With the playing field set around this element, so-to-speak, it made perfect sense for us to create something designed truly for this sport. The Discmania TRX-1 is designed to be used on turf, providing the optimal amount traction even in wet conditions. The sole itself is a touch softer than in your regular trail running shoe, helping the shoe grip to its surface more securely. Subsequently, we do not recommend using the TRX-1 on concrete teepads, as the soles are likely to wear down faster than with shoes that are designed for tougher surfaces.
"It's a new world, but I believe we done our homework well", says Jussi Meresmaa referring to the all new product range for Discmania. "We did not simply take a ready-made design and slap a logo on it, the shoe itself saw many different design phases and prototypes until we were satisfied with the final product", Jussi adds. "It's a matter of growing importance to be able to serve our customers with a wide range of Disc Golf -specific products and to show the businesses that already retail our products that Discmania and the sport of Disc Golf should be taken as seriously as any other sport out there", Jussi concludes.
