Title: Official Disc
Post by: Voluntaryism on August 14, 2013, 12:55:14 AM
I've been a fan of the Discraft Ultra Star for years, but I recently heard it was not the official disc of ultimate. I searched google to no avail. I thought you ultimate enthusiasts would know the answer. Help :)

The Discraft Ultra-Star was named the official disc of USA Ultimate (Ultimate Players Association at the time) in 1991 (http://discraft.com/ultimate.html). It is by far the most used and accepted disc for any Ultimate game worldwide still today. In the past few years a few additions to the Ultra-Star's superiority have been added. The Daredevil Gamedisc recently was given Championship Approval by USA Ultimate (http://www.usaultimate.org/resources/disc_standards.aspx) and the Innova Pulsar disc was selected by Major League Ultimate (MLU) to be their official game disc, while the American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL) still solely uses the Discraft Ultra-Star (http://ultimatefrisbee.me/ultimate-frisbee-discs.html). Ultra-Stars are still the ultimate of Ultimate discs at this time though.
