Product Review

Disc Golf Subscription Box Roundup

The monthly box subscription market has continued to grow over the past few years. ¬†Simply put, you sign up to receive a regularly scheduled delivery of goods curated by a third party. ¬†Usually these subscriptions deliver to your door on a monthly basis. ¬†You can seriously find a monthly subscription for just about anything: crossfit, makeup, and of course disc golf. ¬†It’s like a getting a little present each month! ¬†We wanted to provide you with a full round-up of these boxes for disc golf, complete with our opinions on each.

Infinite Discs VIP Club

Price: $19.99

Schedule: Monthly

Infinite Discs VIP Box Subscription

Details:

The Infinite Discs VIP Club is a limited membership club (400 spots at time of writing).  Each month, a newer disc arrives with completely custom and limited artwork.  Occasionally the disc is a special run of plastic and often the package includes a bonus item like a towel, bag tag, patch, or coupon.  You have no ability to select options like plastic, brand, or weight preferences.

Being part of the VIP Club also gives access to a special online store where other limited run discs with custom artwork are available.

Best For:

  • Collectors (though the future value of these is obviously unknown)
  • non-brand-specific disc golfers interested in trying new discs with crazy cool stamps

Puttheads’ Opinion:

Rodney has been a member of the VIP club since its beginning. ¬†At $20, the disc is a little expensive but the artwork and exclusivity of the club makes it fun. ¬†If you are really picky about what you throw, this isn’t for you. ¬†Also note that there is currently a waiting list to join.

DiscStore’s Discmember

Price: $24.99

Schedule: Monthly

DiscStore DiscMember Box Subscription

Details:

Discmember, brought to you by DiscStore.com, aims to provide a new, recent, or pre release disc in the best plastics.  Each shipment also comes with another disc golf item like a shirt, hat, or Friction Gloves.  Occasionally these discs come with custom artwork or plastic types not yet available.  You get to select a shirt size and a disc weight range preference.

Being part of the Discmember program also gives you a personalized coupon code for 10% off, good for your entire active membership period.

Best For:

  • non-brand-specific disc golfers interested in trying new discs
  • any disc golfer looking to get some great apparel

Puttheads’ Opinion:

Rodney has been a part of the Discmember subscription since its beginning.  While the discs have been really cool and mostly pre-release, the apparel and accessories make it worth your monthly $25.  This is the best overall value in a monthly box.

The Disc Golf Box Company

Price: $37.99 – $49.99

Schedule: Monthly, Quarterly, Bi-Monthly, One Time

Link: https://www.thediscgolfboxcompany.com/

Details:

We haven’t specifically subscribed to this box, so we’re only going on the information available at their website.¬† You are able to choose specific brands, weight ranges, disc categories, and stability. ¬†Or you can just get a random box of goodies. ¬†Depending on the package you choose, you get 2 discs and 3 other disc golf items or you get 2 discs and 1-2 swag items. ¬†It seems that occasionally the discs will have a custom stamp but more often than not these are stock stamps.

Best For:

  • disc golfers seeking a specific brand, stability, or disc type along with some other swag

Puttheads’ Opinion:

There’s a reason we haven’t subscribed to this box – it simply doesn’t carry enough value to garner our monthly attention. ¬†There isn’t anything special about the discs or swag. ¬†For the monthly cost, I’d prefer to choose my own items that I know I want. ¬†That said, a non-disc golfer may find value in letting someone else choose a present for someone.

Disc Golf Boxes

Price: $35.00 – $100

Schedule: Monthly

Link: http://www.discgolfboxes.com

Details:

Yet another monthly subscription we haven’t been able to experience, so again we’re only going on the information available at their website.¬† Just like The Disc Golf Box Company, you are able to choose specific brands, weight ranges, disc categories, and stability.¬† You can also choose to be surprised. ¬†Depending on the package you choose, you get 2 discs and 2 other disc golf items or 4 discs and 2-3 swag items, or 6 discs and 3-4 swag items.

Best For:

  • disc golfers seeking a specific brand, stability, or disc type along with some other swag

Puttheads’ Opinion:

We were made aware of this service by reader Daniel (thanks!).¬† Again for the monthly cost I’d prefer to choose my own items that I know I want.

Conclusion

Monthly boxes aren’t for everyone. ¬†Some people really don’t care about exclusive stamps, pre-release discs, or custom apparel. ¬†We enjoyed the Chain Cutter’s Union for several months before that discontinued and we’ll continue to enjoy a monthly package from Infinite Discs and DiscStore.

If you are aware of any other monthly services like these, please let us know so we can add them to the round-up.  Also, if you have experience with any of these subscriptions, please leave a comment and tell everyone your opinion.
