I just wanted to say thanks for visiting the new site… I hope you enjoy the photos I have chosen to kick start what I hope will be an ever growing montage of Canadian Disc Golf icons and action. Special thanks to Hal at Moonrider Productions for these first images. I hope he hasn’t set the bar so high that you’re hesitant about sending in your best shot(s).
By now you’ve found the blog section. If you’re not too bored already, I’ll be using this medium to echo my thoughts- only those disc sport related of course. However, I’ll try to focus on new product coming into Canada and event results and highlights from my own travels and connections. The first bit of news I’ll drop is that of the latest plastic revolution out of Sweden: Frost Line. This is exceptionally exciting for us in the Great White North, as its allegedly grippy in wet/cold conditions. The initial release will consist of River, Diamond, and Claymore (Trilogy Challenge 2014 midrange). Westside Discs and Dynamic Discs are also releasing models in this new plastic, naturally under unique names to keep us on our toes. “Elasto” from Westside will debut in the widely popular Giant and World drivers. I’m personally excited to get hold of World in Elasto, as this disc lit up my driving this year. Dynamic will be releasing undisclosed models in what they call “Fluid” plastic. Look for these discs at snapdiscs.ca by the new year…
…Which brings up the store introduced on this new improved site. Until recently, it had never occurred to me to pursue the end consumer for sales, eBay aside that is. I got into this business out of wanting a better selection of disc golf products in Canada. So I supplied stores with the brands I made connections with and was interested in. However, recently it occurred to me that many Canadians are unable to access the product I supply to retail stores. So here you have it, a virtual store where any of the discs I carry can be purchased. And on top of that, because I know how it feels to get dicked by hidden costs like shipping, brokerage and exchange rates, all prices you see here include shipping (anywhere within Canada only). I’m also holding off on charging sales tax until the bitter end too. The price you see here is the price you pay- in good old Canadian dollars! That said, if you do live near one of the stores I supply to, I encourage you to check them out before buying here. My prices are in line with theirs and I always recommend getting your hands on a disc before buying it if you can. E-mail me to find out if there is a brick and mortar store near you.
Again, thanks for stopping in and I hope you aren’t a stranger. I’m always into bargaining and bullshitting when it comes to plastic! Oh, and if you already throw something you see here, feel free to leave a review.
