This year we are partnering up with Discraft! For over 40 years Discraft have provided quality and standard, and given back to the community through donations and sponsorships. Discraft make one of the most popular discs available in Ultimate and are currently the disc supplier of WFDF and various different disc federations. We are thrilled to partner with them for 2019 and 2020!
In your team pack you will find one official Windmill disc for each player, which will be a familiar UltraStar. They are made with a special blend of plastic (mainly polyethylene, the rest is top secret…) which makes the disc fly smoothly in all weather. They fly far and where you want them to go, whether an I/O, roll curve or straight, this disc will not let you down. In case you want to surprise a team member back home, get your mother to play some ultimate or want to donate a disc to your local youth club, this year we also sell discs! You can buy Discraft discs in the merchandise tent.
We are very glad Discraft has a reduce, reuse or recycle policy. All their shipping material is reused and any discs that are not up to their standards are ground up and remade into new discs. Sounds like a match made in heaven.
Their discs are tested on a regular basis to make sure flight characteristics and quality is above standards. USA Ultimate top players also tests the discs every three years to make sure they meet their high standards. Discs are measured daily to make sure the weight, height and quality are being kept. The one millionth disc will be donated this year!
As stated in the rules, when the two captains decide to play with another disc then our official game disc, no problem!
