The Best Disc Golf Discs For Frolfers In 2024

The best disc golf discs ever…period. That’s a tough one. Plus, as a disc golfer, I know that everyone’s opinion on the best disc golf disc is based on what’s in their bag. I’m guilty as charged on that one myself. 

But, when it comes to compiling a list for everyone to see, there can be only one. I’m sure that not everyone will agree, but that’s okay because I’m not prepared to say that none of the discs in your bag compare. Experience guides my hand, however, and these are simply the best discs that we at Ok Disc Golfers believe are deserving of their respective spots!

Testing Procedure For The Best Disc Golf Discs

I’ve been into the sport for a long time, well over a decade now. Every disc on this list has been in my bag at one time or another, and I struggle to say a bad thing about any of them. 

I tend to struggle with understable discs, but that’s not a knock against the disc and definitely a knock against myself. These discs were tested by more than 10 years of playing with them, off and on, trading them, purchasing new versions in different packages and different plastics, and testing them on new players I’ve pulled into the sport (my wife rather reluctantly, haha).

But I also wanted to test some of these discs against other popular variations. So, a part of my testing procedure incorporated that, as well as knocking the dust off of some older, popular discs and putting them back into action. 

Best Disc Golf Discs Reviews of Our Top Picks

Here we are, at long last, at the biggest list in our run of best discs (insert category here). I’ve endeavored to include some of the classics, if they deserved it, along with some interesting comparisons if you stick around for the honorable mentions. So, without further adieu…

Discraft Buzzz – Best Disc Golf Disc Overall

Features

  • 5.0/4.0/-1.0/1.0 Flight Pattern
  • Stable 
  • Best for BH throws
  • Beginner to Expert Players
  • Beadless
  • Six Plastic Types

Specs

  • Diameter: 21.7cm
  • Rim Width: 1.2cm
  • Rim Depth: 1.3cm
  • Height: 1.9cm
  • Weight: 177g Max

Why We Chose It

There’s simply no eclipsing the Buzzz, a disc well-known in every disc golfing circle across the planet. The Buzz has been an integral and super popular disc since its release in 2003. That’s right — over two decades of being the best disc golf disc with little sign of change. 

Personally, I feel like the Buzzz is a finesse disc, and I’ve had every type of plastic in Discraft’s lineup for the Buzzz in my bag at one time or another. The Buzzz is based on the Wasp mold (another good disc) and is at its best in the original Elite Z plastic. Though I listed it as a predominately BH disc, the Buzzz is known for its versatility, reliable flight pattern, and consistency. 

Infinite Discs Tomb – Best Disc Golf Putter

Features

  • 3.0/4.0/0.0/1.0 Flight Pattern
  • Stable 
  • Holds well for BH and FH
  • Beginner to Expert Players
  • Four Plastic Types
  • Beaded

Specs

  • Diameter: 21.3cm
  • Rim Width: 1.1cm
  • Rim Depth: 1.3cm
  • Height: 1.6cm
  • Weight: 175g Max

Why We Chose It

The Infinite Discs Tomb is the little engine that could making its way up into the ranks of best putter quietly and unceremoniously. It’s no surprise that it’s consistently ranked at the top, however, because it’s a fantastic putter overall. It has a slightly overstable feel to it despite its stable brand.

It’s a versatile disc, capable of handling a strong approach with a FH or BH throw. It reliably holds its line unless it’s intercepted by a tree. If you need a straight-flying disc off the tee on a short par 3, the Tomb will answer the call. It also handles well for short puts within 25’. It’s an all-around, versatile disc, only rivaled by a few.

Dynamic Discs Justice – Best Disc Golf Mid-Range

Features

  • 5.0/1.0/0.5/4.0 Flight Pattern
  • Overstable
  • Intermediate to Expert Players
  • Beaded
  • Five Plastic Types

Specs

  • Diameter: 21.3cm
  • Rim Width: 1.5cm
  • Rim Depth: 1.3cm
  • Height: 1.7cm
  • Weight: 176g Max

Why We Chose It

The Dynamic Discs Justice is the best mid-range because it works so well on wooded courses, with the vast majority of courses having woods to one degree or another. Master your hyzer and anhyzer releases, and this disc will slice whatever line you want it to. 

The Justice’s best feature is that it eliminates doglegs, left or right, since the disc performs equally well FH or BH, regardless of which hand is your strong hand. Even if you aren’t a prolific distance thrower, you can use its severe overstability to craft a high fade around harsh turns. As you beat it in, it will eventually turn into a slightly more stable champion of wooded courses, with more distance before the harsh fade kicks in. 

Latitude 64 Saint Pro – Best Disc Golf Fairway Driver

Features

  • 8.0/5.0/-0.5/2.0 Flight Pattern
  • Overstable
  • Intermediate to Expert Players
  • Three Plastic Types
  • Beadless

Specs

  • Diameter: 21.2cm
  • Rim Width: 1.8cm
  • Rim Depth: 1.2cm
  • Height: 2.0cm
  • Weight: 176g Max

Why We Chose It

The Latitude 64 Saint Pro and its little brother, the Saint, are two of the most popular discs in the Latitude 64’s lineup, so it’s no surprise that it ranks as the best disc golf fairway driver. The Saint Pro is often labeled a severely overstable disc. But, if you’ve handled the Justice or a Firebird, you’ll find the Saint Pro much more controllable. 

I wouldn’t define it as a finesse disc, but I will say that the Saint Pro is a versatile disc that will obey the line you set it on, albeit with moderate to severe fade at the end. A strong enough arm will push it into an S-curve, though not a brutal one. The Saint Pro is also an excellent driver on shorter par 4s, often performing better than its 8.0 speed, especially after it beats in a little. 

Innova Champion Destroyer – Best Disc Golf Distance Driver

Features

  • 12.0/5.0/-1.0/3.0 
  • Overstable 
  • Intermediate to Expert Players
  • Five Plastic Types
  • Beadless

Specs

  • Diameter: 21.1cm
  • Rim Width: 2.2cm
  • Rim Depth: 1.2cm
  • Height: 1.4cm
  • Weight: 175g Max

Why We Chose It

No matter how you cut it, distance drivers will always be the running away favorite disc types for disc golfers, and the Innova Champion Destroyer holds the throne as the best distance driver in the sport. On its surface, it seems like a severely overstable driver. Beginners won’t be able to handle the combination of high-speed and fade numbers. 

However, the beauty of the Destroyer comes in time, at least it has for me. A slightly to moderately beat in Destroyer is one of the most versatile high-speed drivers in the business, especially on an open field where wicked S-curves will give you enough hang time for excellent distance drives and precision placement. 

Dynamic Discs Warden – Putter Honorable Mention

Features

  • 2.0/4.0/0.0/0.5 Flight Pattern
  • Stable
  • Beginner to Expert Players
  • Beadless
  • Four Plastic Types

Specs

  • 21.2cm
  • Rim Width: 1.1cm
  • Rim Depth: 1.5cm
  • Height: 2.0cm
  • Weight: 176g Max

Why We Chose It – Warden Vs. Judge

The Warden has been on my honorable mentions list before, and I’m certain that some will hold up the Judge as the better putter in the Dynamic Discs Putter lineup. However, the Warden is basically a beadless Judge, and I like a beadless disc, especially a putter. 

The Warden is one of the most predictably reliable putters regardless of the manufacturer’s name stamped in the center or top. Too much juice will flip it, but if you can find the perfect rhythm, the Warden will dominate a short course as a driver, approach, and putter. If you love the Judge, the Warden is its very close cousin, and you should give it a shot or a hundred. 

Innova Roc – Mid-Range Honorable Mention

Features

  • 4.0/4.0/0.0/3.0 Flight Pattern
  • Overstable
  • Advanced to Expert Players
  • Four Plastic Types
  • Beaded

Specs

  • Diameter: 21.7cm
  • Rim Width: 1.2cm
  • Rim Depth: 1.3cm
  • Height: 2.0cm
  • Weight: 180g Max

Why We Chose It – Roc Vs. Harp

The Roc is another classic disc that’s been in Innova’s lineup forever. It’s one of the most popular as well, sometimes usurping the Buzzz, depending on who you talk to and the day of the week. Since the Buzzz is our number one choice, I thought it fitting to throw the Roc up against another overstable mid-range/putter — the Westside Disc Harp.

The only difference between the two is the Roc’s glide advantage at 4.0 versus the Harp’s 3.0. This is enough for me to give the Roc the edge as a mid-range, as the approach is often distant enough to require that extra little bit of flight time, something the Harp can’t do. Otherwise, the Roc is a fantastic and highly versatile disc. And, like the Harp, is a suitable putter as well. 

Discraft Heat – Fairway Driver Honorable Mention

Best Disc Golf Discs

Features

  • 9.0/6.0/-3.0/1.0 Flight Pattern
  • Understable
  • Beginner to Advanced Players
  • Five Plastic Types
  • Beadless

Specs

  • Diameter: 21.1cm
  • Rim Width: 1.9cm
  • Rim Depth: 1.2cm
  • Height: 2.1cm
  • Weight: 173g Max

Why We Chose It – Heat Vs. Pro-D XL

The Discraft Heat is one of my favorite versatile discs. I’m still using the prototype I received at a 2014 Ace Race in Florida. I don’t break it out of my bag as much as I used to, but I grab the Heat when I need a duck-and-dodge disc and some serious finesse. It stacks up well against the Discraft Pro-D XL

The latter netted me my first ever Ace, hole #9, at the University of South Alabama. Both are understable, with the XL serving as more of a finesse laser beam. The Heat gets the top spot, however, thanks to a higher glide and speed, both of which match reality to numbers fairly well. I find I can get just a little bit more out of the Heat than I can the Pro-D XL. 

Westside Queen – Distance Driver Honorable Mention

Features

  • 14.0/5.0/-3.0/2.0 Flight Pattern
  • Ultra High-Speed Driver
  • Beginner to expert Players
  • Understable
  • Five Plastic Types
  • Beadless

Specs

  • Diameter: 21.2cm
  • Rim Width: 2.4cm
  • Rim Depth: 1.1cm
  • Height: 1.6cm
  • Weight: 175g Max 

Why We Chose It – Queen Vs. Freedom

The Westside Queen, when thrown right, produces one of the prettiest and longest S-curves I’ve ever seen in a long-distance driver. If you need an ultra-high-speed driver that’s purely finesse and vicious speed, the Queen is your bet, closely followed by the Freedom. Side by side, the two are often a little difficult to compare, with similar flight paths following a proper release. 

The Freedom simply has a harsher fade, and the higher fade number reduces that S-curve. Either disc is a great option for finesse players with enough power to get the most out of the turn and fade, and both are highly reliable when it comes to matching their numbers. The degree of difference is slight, but the lower fade gives the Queen the edge, with a shade more finesse and versatility in the air. 

How To Choose The Best Disc Golf Discs

The best way to choose the best disc golf discs is to get out there and sling them. There’s really no other way. The hardest thing about selecting the best discs is that most of the time, you can’t test-drive the things before you buy them. I suppose there are some businesses out there that will let you throw a disc before purchasing, but they are few and far between. 

Durability

Most of the time, a disc’s durability boils down to its plastic, which can get quite confusing, especially with disc brands that include several distinct plastic molds. I love the Origio Burst plastics, mostly for their aesthetics, though the Origio is cheap, and the discs beat in faster. 

In general terms, the grippier the disc, the easier it is to beat in. The more beat in it becomes, the more stability it loses. You have to draw a fine line between what is an acceptable feel for you, and the lifespan of a disc before it becomes too compromised to play with. 

Price

Price is a factor, but it’s not the biggest factor by far. That’s mostly because discs are not that expensive unless you’re looking for original first runs, Ace Run prototypes, and things of that nature. There are cheaper second-run lines, the aforementioned Origio Burst, and cheaper plastics in general. It may be a good idea to go with a cheap option just to decide whether or not you love the disc’s performance and feel.

Feel 

Speaking of feel, this is more important than price, at least to me. The feel of the disc helps with comfort, release, and form, all of which matter when you’re trying to carve tight lines in a highly dense tree tunnel. The better the feel, the less likely you’ll spend an inordinate amount of time recovering your discs, fighting off alligators, dredging ponds, and exclaiming over huge dents in the rim from high-speed tree impacts. 

Flight

The better you get, the more this matters. In the beginning, flight is difficult, especially trying to pull off flight patterns that match the flight numbers on the disc. Later, when you have a feel for the game and understand the mechanics necessary to maximize flight performance, the speed, glide, turn, and fade numbers will take on a much more pronounced meaning in your decision-making process. 

Final Putt: Best Disc Golf Discs

There you have it. These are the best disc golf discs of all time, in my oh-so-humble opinion, and I know that many of you will agree. Of course, as I said in the beginning, everyone’s top discs are the ones they have in their bags. Trust me, I’m not here to take away from that opinion by any means. 

There are so many disc golf discs out there that it will take me a long time to try them all and devise a ranking system, but we do the best with what we have, right? If one of the discs on this list catches your eye, you should definitely give it a try!
