Carbon Fiber Frisbee

By: on June 04, 2013

If you have $75 and the desire to slice 10" of carbon fiber through the air, Tyler Seamons has an official flying saucer of summertime for you. Pending successful project funding on Kickstarter, his frisbee and golf-style disc prototypes will undergo some edge and finishing refinements in their final stages, so the ultimate result will be a sleek black pancake of a ninja suitable for all ultimate pursuits.

The Disc golf carbon fiber driver's design will allow it to cover long distances while the frisbee version's will spin over shorter ranges and include a lip for catching. Both discs are to be edged with polyurethane plastic for protection, and weighted according to industry standards.

The Carbon Fiber disc/frisbee funding period runs through August 3, 2013.

November 2013 Update: Disc funding was unsuccessful, and at present it does not appear that its creator has proceeded with producing it for the public.
