Weighing ‘em in, Titanium (Plastic)

Posted by randomtiz


About a month or so ago I was on DGCourseReview.com and saw an ad banner up at the top talking about some new plastic called Titanium from Discraft. Does anyone know anything or have played with this new Titanium plastic? Is it stiffer than their other lines of plastic and/or comparable to Innova’s rigid Champion line of plastic? How about the weight, are they only available in the heavier sizes? I was curious and realized it was one of Discraft’s more premium plastics as it did cost a few extra bucks.

Honestly, I can’t even remember what store’s banner it was that it was advertising. Sounded cool.. but again that’s what I thought when I first heard about Innova’s Blizzard Champions. I still don’t like those. I have one and still don’t see any advantages to it. I can’t keep it out of the tree line because I turn it over every throw.

But, if you’ve hucked some Discraft Titanium plastic, let me know! I may give it a shot.

    I actually keep 10 each of all the 5 disc that are available in the plastic at the store, Custom Shirts & signs jasper al. I love my buzz that I have in it. They hold up great. The flight paths are a little different my titanium buzz flys more like a buzz ss. The plastic feels really nice it has more grip then the z plastic. I also have been throwing a stalker. I have beat the mess out of the buzz and its still holding up great. Its on its way to replacing my heavy leopard ill always keep my light leopard for that gradual anhyzer shot. But definitely love my titanium buzz.

    I agree with Stephen. I have thrown the Ti Buzzz and it has better grip and durability than Elite Z, not a huge difference in flight for me. If you are a buzzz thrower, I would highly recommend it.

  3. I’ve thrown both the Ti Buzzz and Stalker. It’s Discraft’s most durable plastic. I would compare it grip-wise to Latitude 64 Gold Plastic. The biggest difference I’d say has to do with durability and not as much with flight.

  4. I play some heavily wooded courses up here so I may just have to give it a try for the durability. How’s the rim on it? I like the wider rim of the Innova Katanas because it’s easier to wrap my fingers around.

    Stephen, next time you’re in town, I may have to get you to bring me one from your store to try out. You should take a pic of your disc selection at your store and post an article about it. Jasper peeps need to know!

    Not sure if you’ve tried the Ti plastic since this post! I haven’t used it too much, but the biggest complaint I’ve heard is that, since the surface is super slick, its incredibly hard to grip in rain or high humidity. Both are pretty common here during disc golf season!
