The Buyer’s Guide

Type

  • For beginners. If you are a newbie in throwing Frisbees, then you should invest in a cheap disc available in the U.S. supermarkets. For instance, brand Gotcha! offers cheap and colorful discs for beginners;
  • Frisbees for professional athletes. This review includes the discs approved by the sports associations and professional athletes. The most popular brands in this category are Discraft and Yikun. These discs are the best in quality and aerodynamic design. They are made of elastic and durable plastic. And they comply with international sports standards;
  • Glowing discs. Do you like night parties with friends on the beach? The GoSports discs may be a good choice if you want to play Frisbees at night. These bright luminous flying discs have an in-built flat battery and LEDs. They may be good for a long-distance throw. Besides, they look great in the dark. And they will help to create awesome photos;
  • Dog-friendly discs. To play Frisbee with a dog, it is better to use lightweight but durable discs with the anti-scratch surface. Think of Hyperflite or Hero dog-friendly discs available in different sizes – for large dogs and puppies;
  • Frisbees for kids. If you are looking for a throw-and-catch disk for a child under 10 years old, it might be a wise choice to double-check the manufacturer’s recommendations before buying. For instance, Wham-O Frisbees have good aerodynamics and they are made of soft plastic. Consider buying the disc with a small diameter to the kids could throw them effortlessly;

Materials

Most Frisbee discs are made from soft or hard plastic. This is a perfect material for throwing the disc high in the air. But hard plastic may not be a good choice for little pets or kids. Because being hit by a hard-plastic Frisbee is painful. Luckily, some discs are made of soft foam or plastic. In other cases, it is better to select the discs made of hard plastic.

Weight

The weight varies from one model to another. But most U.S. manufacturers make Frisbees within the weight range from 6 to 7 ounces. Most players choose lightweight discs to play with little kids and pets. But if you are into professional throw-and-catch training, consider choosing the disc with some extra weight. Heavier discs are better to throw on windy days.

Durability

When you buy a Frisbee disc, you probably expect it to last for a whole summer. But if your family and friends prefer spending a lot of time on the beach or in the backyard, you may consider buying a set of durable discs. Even if you purchase a high-quality Frisbee it may be broken after the impact with brick walls, rocks, asphalt roads, concrete driveways or even thick trees. So consider buying at least 2 durable discs for the whole summer season.

Price

The price for one disc usually varies from $6 to $20. If you need more than one Frisbee for a beach season, consider buying the set of the discs of the same diameter. Such sets cost up to $40. It is possible to buy a great Frisbee at a low cost. If you are training for professional tournaments, it would be better to invest in more expensive throw-and-catch Frisbees.

How to clean Frisbees?

One of the simplest ways to clean Frisbee discs is to put them in a dishwasher at high heat. But the plastic should be hard enough to resist high heat. Otherwise, just rinse the disc in clean water (the salty ocean water is a bad choice). If your Frisbee is very dirty, rinse under the running water with a bit of a dishwashing liquid.

How To Throw And Catch A Frisbee

The easiest way to throw a forehand is to put your hand as such, in a gun-shaped position. Put your fingers against the rim of the disc. Make sure your disc is parallel to the ground, flick your wrist, and follow-through.

To throw a backhand, hold the underside of the disc with four fingers and your thumb on the rim. Step out at a 45 degrees angle. Similar to a forehand, keep the disc parallel to the ground, snap your wrist and follow through.

For the hammer, grip your disk as you would for a forehand. Put the disc over your head, slightly angle the disc, flick your wrist, and follow-through.

The pancake catch is the most secure catch in Ultimate. Basically, all you have to do is put one hand on top of the other, anticipate the flight of the disc and secure it.

The two hand grab is the more aggressive catch in Ultimate Frisbee. To perform the catch, anticipate the flight of the disc, stretch out your hands, and catch the disc. That’s it.

Ultimate Frisbee is played on a field that is 100 meters long and 37 meters wide with two end zones, situated at both ends of the field. The movement of the disc is similar to that of a captain’s ball. Players pass the disc to one another with the objective of catching it in their end zone to score a point. Flying disc is usually played with seven aside and a mixture of guys and girls.

  1. I’ve been throwing frisbees around for 25+ years and I have two favourite throws. One is a back hand air bounce from behind and over your head, you need to kind of jog/step into it and bend over forwards. The other is a no spin throw which can fly beautifully. Have your four fingers under the disc spread out evenly with your thumb on the top in the middle. Keep your arm straight, and move from aiming downwards swinging up to horizontal and let go, while the disc is also horizontal. The disc then flies like a wing minus the gyro effect and if you get it just right it goes up to ten meters just gracefully falling through the air forwards with no spin. Hope that makes sense to someone..!
