NiteIze FlashFlight LED Disc Golf Discs Review

Posted by randomtiz



Don’t stop playing at dusk anymore. Keep your round going on into the night!

Winter is here, and for most of us, it gets dark very early. For me personally, it’s dark well before I even get off work which limits me to squeezing in a few holes during a lunch break or just weekend play. NiteIze has come out with a set of LED discs called FlashFlights that you have to check out if you’re an avid disc golfer. These are not your typical “glow” discs either that require you applying a light source to for hours on end to “charge” them up. The NiteIze FlashFlight Disc Golf Discs use patented fiber-optic array lighting that vividly illuminates the disc. Your typical glow discs only put off so much glow–you even lose sight of them on longer drives. But not anymore, these are super-bright color changing LED discs made from professional molds designed by professional players!

The color changing option cycles through 7 colors. Simply press the button on the underside a second time to lock in your color selection as the colors cycle through. Choose from Red, Purple, Blue, Aqua, Green, and White or even let it cycle infinitely. These LED discs are pretty durable from what I could tell during my testing phase as well as water-resistant. NiteIze claims the discs have approximately 20-hrs of LED runtime! The weight of the discs weights range from 169-175g althoug I didn’t see where it was actually marked anywhere on the discs.

You can buy the LED discs individually for ~$23/ea. or a 3-pk set for ~$60. Each set comes with a driver, midrange and a putter (link down below).

Now you never have to cut your round short again! These discs add a whole new challenging twist of fun to your everyday casual round! You don’t have to use these just at night either. Throwing over a water hazard and afraid you might lose sight of your disc underwater? Turn on the light and chunk it with confidence. (While not tested) You might be able to see it lit up in shallow water. I was amazed how far away you could still see them lit up in the distance. The video review doesn’t do them justice in terms of how bright they are.These discs would make a great idea for an unsanctioned 3-disc Night Round tourney (continued after the jump).
