New Mint Disc Releases

It seems like 2023 has been disc golf christmas all year long. With Kastaplast dropping multiple new molds recently, Innova set to release the Alien and Rollo (while already dropping the Charger in early 2023) and Discraft adding the Venom to its line up – disc golf discs have never been more in abundance than they have in 2023. 

Mint Discs is no exception to the trend of new designs either. Here’s a list of the four latest molds to come out of the Austin, Texas disc golf company: 

Lasso – Midrange/Fairway

UFO – Putter

Taco – Midrange/Fairway

Salamander – Fairway driver

Mint Discs Names

Yes, let’s discuss the names. Mint Discs Lasso, UFO, Taco and Salamander. When we think of Mint Discs names for their products, a lot of childlike wonder seems to come to mind for some reason. Phoenix, Alpha, Mustang… Plus they’ve got great stamps coming out of the factory too. But getting back to the new Mint UFO and Mint Taco and Mint Salamander, who wouldn’t want to throw one of these discs based sheerly off their name? I personally would love to approach every green with my Taco.

Mint Discs Lineup

Mint Discs has created a truly exciting lineup of discs, including the Alpha, a stable eight speed driver, the Phoenix which is a perfect replacement to anyone’s Firebird or Raptor, and the Freetail, which is a finesse ten speed driver that allows you to cut through lines like never before. Plus, Mint Discs signed Mason Ford in the offseason of 2023 and now throws his own signature Bullet in Apex plastic, a particularly floaty and controllable putter most akin to the judges he formally was throwing on team Dynamic Discs. 

New Mint Discs Specifications

While we can’t be 100% certain these discs will turn out the way we’ve predicted, you can take a look at the specifications for each disc below. Not every disc golf company has the size of an Innova or Dynamic Discs and can pump out new molds to fill even the slimmest margins of gaps in lineups, so seeing Mint discs trying to fill holes in their disc lineup is exciting.
