In addition to normal player pack (for Ams), ALL
players, PRO AND AM
, that pre-register by Thursday, March 3rd
will receive a brand new release from Innova Discs - the Makani. The Makani is not even approved yet by the PDGA, or even on the Innova website it is so new.
Innova's description of it:
MAKANI / NEW!
The Makani is a fun new lightweight large diameter disc for
all sports. The Makani was designed with versatility in mind.
Whether you want to play a casual game of catch on the beach, a
pick-up game of Ultimate in the park, or even a round of disc golf,
the Makani is ready to fly for you.
Diameter: 24.1 cm
Makani Sport disc 140 GRAMS
So, what is it? If you know what a Te Moko is, it is *incredibly* similiar in mold, without the ridges on top that the Te Moko has. Unlike the Te Moko, the Makani light weight, so it is more suited for playing catch with a person or possibly a dog. Sometimes I see players playing catch before rounds to warm up. The few I weighed were right at 144 grams.
Why the Makani?
When I approached Innova about being the title sponsor for this event, I requested a player pack item that was a bit unusual. Something other than the typical golf disc, or shirt.
