Top Rated Disc Golf Discs

At the Disc Golf Test Lab, we primarily focus on our experiences testing different brands and makes of plastic. And while testing discs is a great way to determine the best, user experience from a multitude of different players, is also a good way to determine good discs. Infinite Discs recently launched a retail disc sales website.

In the last week, Infinite Discs has received more than 500 reviews by disc golfers from all over the country. While there were a good share of discs reviewed from the "big dawgs" Innova and Discraft, some of the highest rated discs come from manufacturers such as MVP, Vibram, and Latitude 64.

Here are the top rated discs according to

Top Rated Distance Drivers

Surprisingly, none of the super fast distance drivers are rated the highest. Probably due to the fact that the average disc golfer doesn't throw hard enough take advantage of the thick rim and speed. The top rated distance driver is actually the Innova Roadrunner. This understable disc has had 7 reviews and a rating of 4.8 out of 5.

The Latitude 64 Saint received the most reviews, 11, and had a rating of 4.75 out of 5. The Saint is the only distance driver with a glide rating of 7. The Westside Sword was another popular distance driver. It had 7 reviews and an average rating of 4.5.

Top Rated Fairway Drivers

Without question, the top rated fairway driver is the Innova Teebird. With 11 reviews, this disc had a perfect 5 rating. Everyone who reviewed the Teebird absolutely loves it and rated it as a "must have." This must be a great disc if everyone who has rated it thinks its better than "very good." Several commenters said that this disc is the single greatest disc ever made.

The Latitude 64 River is the only other fairway driver that has received double digit reviews. Like the Saint, this fairway driver has an incredible glide rating of 5. The 10 visitors who rated the River gave it a rating of 4.38 out of 5. The common complaint with this disc is that it doesn't handle wind very well.

Top Rated Mid-Range Discs

The Discraft Buzzz is clearly one of the most used golf discs on the market. It has received 22 ratings and 17 reviews -- almost all of which are very positive. The Buzzz currently has an average rating of 4.86 out of 5... Impressive. I might want to consider throwing this disc again.

Other highly rated midrange discs include the MVP Axis, ABC Flying Squirrel, and the Discraft Comet.

Top Rated Putters

While there are many highly regarded disc golf putters, the MVP Ion is the only putt and approach disc with a perfect 5 star rating. This disc is especially popular as an approach disc, and for making long putts.

The overstable Discraft Zone putter had some very high ratings,  and rated 4.71 out of 5 by its reviewers. I guess it's safe to say that this is the top rated overstable putter. The Gateway Wizard, and MVP Anode are also very highly regarded disc golf putters.

While we haven't personally tested several of these top rated discs, there are many disc golfers out there who swear by him. This data is very valuable to people who really want the best possible frisbee golf discs.
