The most anticipated drop of the year is upon us.
This year it’s bigger and better than ever before. We couldn’t just call it something simple like Wave 4. No, we needed to give this drop a name worthy of its grandeur: The Finale.
This year’s highlight drop contains 25 molds and two specialty sets with a wide variety of putters, midranges, fairways and distance drivers. We’ve brought you some old classics in brand new plastics for the first time, some popular discs with special colors, and a collection of custom commissioned stamp designs that are sure to blow your mind.
To help you sift through all the amazing options and choose the perfect discs for your game, we’ve analyzed each mold to tell you how it flies, what it looks like, and what makes it special so you can be prepared when the discs go live at
www.shopledgestone.com on July 26.
We’ve separated The Finale into putters and midranges, drivers, and specialty sets. Let’s take a look at the putters and midranges next.
ESP Swirl Sparkle Glo Zone - The Zone is Discraft’s most popular approach disc. Good for both forehands and backhands, this extremely overstable mold can handle significant torque and always provides a reliable finish to its flight, no matter the angle. This run shows off Discraft’s signature swirly ESP plastic with an extra special shimmer. The tackiness of these Zones adds to a comfortable grip in the hand. The stamp features a space walker avoiding a lava pit and traversing a barren, extraterrestrial landscape.
CryZtal Flx Zone - The Zone is Discraft’s most popular approach disc. Good for both forehands and backhands, this extremely overstable mold can handle significant torque and always provides a reliable finish to its flight, no matter the angle. The CryZtal Flx Zone was the first Ledgestone LE disc ever commissioned and continues to be an annual run. This run offers added confidence when approaching the green through the Flx portion of the plastic which absorbs impact and minimizes ground play. Though the flexibility in the flight plate is pronounced, the CryZtal adds a slight stiffness to the rim along with a translucent ice-like appearance. The stamp gives a nod to one of the Ledgestone Open’s featured courses, Northwood Black, through a symmetrical reflective design highlighting the course’s signature element of difficulty: the trees.
Ti Swirl Challenger SS - The Challenger SS is an understable compliment to the classic Challenger. With a shallower profile, beadless rim, and flat flight plate, this mold provides straight flights right out of the box and the confidence to hit chains the first time. This run holds that out-of-the-box straight flight for a long time in the ultra-durable Titanium plastic. These feel quite tacky in the hand and give off a gorgeous pearly sheen with the signature Discraft swirls. The stamp features centrally-placed, cursive “Challenger SS” lettering encircled by a cloud, as two smoking tires burnout in preparation for the disc’s direct route to the chains.
Swirl Soft Luna - The Luna was the first disc designed with, and for, Paul McBeth upon his arrival to Discraft in 2018. It has flourished alongside the popularity and success of the 6 time World Champion and has become one of the most used putters on the planet. The Luna’s beadless rim, limited glide and overstability inspire confidence in both high-speed and low-speed arms. The overstability makes the Luna a popular choice for a throwing putter as well. The soft plastic in this run is both flexible and grippy and feels great in the hand. This is the second time the Luna has been run in soft plastic, and is the first time it is available to purchase outside of a starter set. This run is surprisingly torque resistant and displays unusually long glide. These Lunas come in two distinct designs. One features a plain flight plate to show off one of the swirliest Luna runs ever produced. The bottom stamp keeps the flight plate clean and depicts a space-themed view of a distant moon in conjunction with the mold’s lunar-themed name. The second features the reflection of the moon in the visor of an astronaut helmet while a crack in the helmet allows an eye to peer through.
White ESP Buzzz - The Buzzz remains the most popular Discraft disc on the market. A dependable, straight-flying midrange with a consistent fade that holds any line you put it on, the Buzzz is a go-to for all levels of players. The pure, opaque white coloration gives this run a clean look to pair with the durability and tacky grip of the ESP plastic. Roses frame an intricate stamp design complete with hidden details everywhere.
Midnight Two Color Z Buzzz - The Buzzz remains the most popular Discraft disc on the market. A dependable, straight-flying midrange with a consistent fade that holds any line you put it on, the Buzzz is a go-to for all levels of players. These Buzzzes are dependable and straight with an overstable finish, perfect for handling extra torque on release. The highlight of these is the horror-themed stamp designed by famed disc golf artist Brian Allen. A 3-D cylindrical saw blade slices through the center of the disc while splatter from the carnage flies in every direction. The splatter and blade are stamped with two distinct color foils to make the design pop.
Midnight Grateful CryZtal Buzzz - The Buzzz remains the most popular Discraft disc on the market. A dependable, straight-flying midrange with a consistent fade that holds any line you put it on, the Buzzz is a go-to for all levels of players. The highly collectible and uber-popular Grateful Dead design is back in this themed Ledgestone run. The roses, the skeletons, the Deadhead logos, and more have all been reincorporated to bring in the usual audience. This run, however, is a touch more overstable than any other Grateful Buzzz to date.
Z Swirl Metallic Buzzz - Are you ready to play? These Fortnite themed Ledgestone Buzzzes include every member of Team Ledgestone preparing to get in the game! The Buzzz remains the most popular Discraft disc on the market. A dependable, straight-flying midrange with a consistent fade that holds any line you put it on, the Buzzz is a go-to for all levels of players. This run combines beauty with the standard Z plastic feel and added sparkle. The swirls and inner shine make these Buzzzes pop.
Jawbreaker Swirl Ringer GT - The Ringer GT is a versatile disc used for both putts and approaches. Its overstability inspires trust in both calm and windy conditions. The groove top (GT) gives throwers a natural thumb track when gripping the disc to produce maximum spin upon release. These Ringer GTs feel amazing in the hand in the grippy Jawbreaker plastic. They have consistent fade right out of the box, but season nicely to produce a straight flier. The bold Discraft logo offers a simplistic stamp to let the disc itself do the talking.
Jawbreaker Z Fierce - The Fierce is an understable putter with a beadless rim and strong glide. It is a popular choice for a variety of shots including long putter throws, short approaches, and putting. This putter was designed specifically for Paige Pierce upon her return to Discraft at the end of 2019. These Fierces are stiff in the hand, durable, and true to their intended flight path with a touch of added overstability. A minimalistic stamp allows the plastic to do the talking. The vibrant and colorful Z plastic has been infused with flecks of Jawbreaker for the first time in a run of Fierces to create a visually stunning product.
UV Z Wasp - This is the disc that led to the creation of the Buzzz. Considered the Buzzz’s slightly more overstable cousin, it falls between the Buzzz and the Buzzz OS in stability. Other than the increased fade, the Wasp also sports a beaded rim, differentiating it from the feel of a standard Buzzz. A sizable and menacing hive in the trees graces the front of this run, but the UV plastic makes the stamp pop even more. The plastic in this run will shift from colorless in the shade to a vibrant magenta in the sunlight. The Wasp is already consistently overstable and the UV plastic only adds to that. These Wasps will be dependable for years to come.
ESP Swirl Sparkle Nebula - The Nebula was released in 2008 as Discraft’s Ace Race prototype and eventually became the predecessor to the Buzzz OS. Since then, the Nebula’s production has been discontinued at Discraft. That held true until the Ledgestone Edition Z Swirl Nebula was released as a limited run in 2021. The ESP plastic in this run increases grip and adds a tacky feel. These Nebulas all have vibrant swirls and a distinct shimmer with the metal flakes infused in the plastic. The stamp depicts the side profile of an astronaut helmet as the back end fades smoothly into a collection of galaxies, planets, and new stars in a nod to the disc mold’s name.
ESP Swirl Sol - The 2018 Discraft Ace Race disc found a major supporter in 5-time World Champion Paige Pierce and has become a permanent part of the Discraft lineup as the Sol. The Sol is an understable disc with extreme glide, perfect for turnovers and controlled shot-shaping. These Sols are both grippy and beautiful. The ESP plastic is durable and holds the turnover abilities of the Sol long into its life. The stamp is simplistic and fun with “Sol” spelled out in bubble letters next to a smiling sun at the top of the flight plate while the rest is left untouched to show off the swirls in each disc.
