We currently have three different plastic varieties, MaxGrip, StayPut, and MaxGrip Glow. MaxGrip is our plastic used for all of our traditional golf discs and sets while StayPut is only for use in our specialty approach discs. Divergent Discs plastics are designed to provide maximum value and control for the recreational disc golfer.
While many companies have a multitude of different confusing plastic varieties at a variety of different prices, we have chosen to keep it simple and consistent.
Coming late in 2022 we plan to introduce an inexpensive base plastic as well as an ultra durable plastic blend on select molds.
MaxGrip plastic is made out of a premium TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) blend designed for maximum grip. This plastic looks fantastic with a shimmering appearance. It is moderately soft and flexible allowing for adequate safety and performance.
This is a premium disc golf blend that is much more durable than most golf discs for sale at comparable prices. The elastic nature of Maxgrip plastic allows it to quickly return to shape and gives it a heartbeat sound when pressing in the flight plate of many of our discs.
The plastic used for the Alpas and Golem is actually a Silicone blend similar to rubber. We call this plastic blend “StayPut” plastic. It is ultra soft, flexible, and designed to “Stay Put” next to the basket without skipping or bouncing. This unique golf disc material will save you strokes by keeping you near the basket.
StayPut plastic can become brittle in cold weather. We advise against using these discs when outside temperatures are cold as discs can break on impact.
Do not fold in half as this also can damage your disc making it unusable.
Max Grip glow is a slightly stiffer version of of MaxGrip plastic with the added benefit of glowing in the dark! With MaxGrip Glow plastic discs, you can play disc golf around the clock. These are still excellent discs for play during the day, but once the sun goes down you can continue to play. Shop our glow in the dark discs here.
