We carry 120 different molds here at crittercontrolcincinnati. Sure it’s mostly Innova, but we also carry MVP, ThoughtSpace Athletics, Axiom, and even 2 DGA molds.
crittercontrolcincinnati is expanding our demo program to have all 120 molds we sell in the store!
I’m a huge advocate of try-before-you-buy. So that’s why I’m pumped to announce that all the discs we sell in the shop are available for folks to get a round in!
Buying a premium plastic, stock stamp disc is $16. Trying 1 disc a month for March-September is $112 dollars if you buy them.
Save that money until you know what disc is right for you. Come to SDG, check out a disc with the front desk, and get some throws with it so you know if it works for you.
Be sure to ask whoever is working the counter at Sabattus if we have a demo of a disc you’re interested in. If it’s there and you want to borrow one of our demo discs, we’ll hold onto your license until you’re done with your round for collateral.
Lost discs will cost $6.50 to replace. I get that a disc might end up in the water or in a tree. That’s disc golf, we just ask that if it does happen to you that you pay us back so we can get another of those for other people to try.
The $6.50 charge made sense a few years ago when people lost our rental discs because that's what we paid for bulk DX plastic with our stamp on it. It doesn't even cover our cost of a disc anymore. But I hope we don't raise it, because I don't want to scare folks away from trying discs for fear of losing something like $16.
I selected all of these discs for folks to try. I went with bright colors, mid-lighter weights, and premium blends like Champion or Star when I was able to. I expect these discs to get lots of throws in the coming years.
Please, save money and take advantage of this program.
Now onto the other part of the blog.
After I went around and counted each individual mold, I then realized I kind of wanted to see what we have the most of for stability.
I asked Arthur and Danielle (my coworkers) what they thought we carried the most of.
Both of them answered “Overstable.” in a pretty confident manner.
It seems like a reasonable expectation. Most of the discs I bag are OS, most higher speed drivers are OS, and while putters are mostly neutral. I think that the majority of discs are above a 5 speed, at least at SDG. So it would be a good guess.
Here’s a list of all of the molds we offer at SDG in the demo section. Broken down into Understable, Stable and Overstable.
I define the discs as Understable, Neutral, or Overstable for myself with this list. When I think of them I think of them in a premium blend like Star/Neutron plastic and in a weight of 170.
- Classic Aviar
I’m actually pretty impressed with this list. We try to have a real smorgasbord of discs to offer folks. 35 understable, 35 neutral, and 50 overstable discs.
If you're interested in learning about any of the discs, search them in our top search bar. If I made a blog full of 120 hyperlinks it would take forever to load, and you'd get annoyed scrolling down and accidentally pressing one with your thumb. So I think just a list is good this time.
We’re always trying to keep up with new disc releases from companies and keep offering folks the same discs that they have become used to throwing. I expect as the years go on we’ll keep adding new discs for folks to try in our collection. A disc golf shop is an ever changing store. We phased Discraft out a year ago because they weren't letting anyone order specific molds. Now that Discraft has allowed that, we're bringing them back! Check back in a few months to see if we've added some of those molds for you to try.
If you read my blog about there being 1500 molds, that was a long time ago and more have been made. Buying each of these discs to try yourself would cost thousands of dollars. And I imagine we all have discs in our garage/attic/car that we don't love throwing. This should help keep costs down and let you find a disc that works for you.
This is a special passion project for me. I think of this as a disc library for folks to check out. While I write blogs about drills to practice, disc golf tips to shave a couple of strokes, and offer beginner form technique. I believe that this is a way to help shave strokes off of many people's games.
And helping you lower your scores is my favorite thing I do at SDG.
May your discs miss all the trees,
