2022 is upon us and it’s time to get ready for The Challenge at Goat Hill Park, Presented by Innova Disc Golf! We’re working hard to present another fantastic tournament at the Goat, with top players and a tough yet exciting course layout. Players want payout, and straw bales for Goat-a-Mids aren’t free, so we’re raising funds with these great Innova discs sporting Andrew Laitinen’s fantastic artwork. Thanks for your support – we’ll see you May 6-8, 2022!
GLOW Sonics!!!!! The Sonic is definitely a throwback disc. It’s actually adapted for disc golf from a “dog disc”, the Hero 235 from Innova partner HeroDiscUSA. Hero is the leading maker of flying discs for competitive disc dog athletes, but dogs aren’t the only fans of these discs! The Sonic is a lot like the old Wham-O Fastback Frisbee, which I used to play catch with along with my best friend, Kurtis. We would ride our bikes down to the Miracle City Mall and throw our Fastback in the entryway to the mall – the air currents there were wild and the Fastback would dance in the currents…but that’s a story for another time…
YOU want to hear about the modern-day “Hero” of the Sonic, Garrett Gurthie! Garrett is undoubtedly the best known Sonic thrower in professional disc golf. He uses the Sonic as an approach putter and has amazing touch with this disc. Garrett learned how to play disc golf from old-time Frisbee throwers, and they taught him the value of having a disc that really allows you to shape your shots. The Sonic is one of the more “catch disc-like” disc golf discs. Learn how to throw the Sonic and your overall disc golf game will improve.
The flight numbers for the Sonic are 1, 2,-4, 0, which means it’s a slow-flying disc with minimal glide, will flip over if thrown very hard and has no low-speed fade – it will finish flat. You can find out more about the Sonic on the Innova website. Oh yeah…these glow like crazy! But I have been told that they become a bit brittle in cold weather, so don’t hit trees in the winter!
The discs are in high demand, so we are limiting them to one per order. If you make two separate orders within a few minutes we will combine shipping but NOT MORE THAN TWO!!!!!!!
Thank you for supporting The Challenge 2022!
