Eurodisc official disc partner for all European Youth Ultimate Events 2017

14/06/2017

Dear Ultimate Community

In January 2017 WFDF and USA-Ultimate officially declared Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic (Hot Stamp) Ultimate Disc as approved Championship Level Ultimate disc: http://www.usaultimate.org/resources/disc_standards.aspx

After an exhaustive internal evaluation, EUF decided to start an official partnership with Eurodisc. Eurodisc will be the official disc partner for all European Youth Ultimate Events 2017 (EYUCup 2017 in Debrecen and EYUC 2017 in Veenendaal). All games at these events will be played with Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic Ultimate Discs. If both teams agree, the use of a different game disc will be tolerated.

Luca Miglioretto, EUF Board Member and winner of many Windmill Pull-Contests evaluated the Eurodisc 175g 4.0 Organic (Hot Stamp) Ultimate Disc for the EUF:

What’s different between Discraft and Eurodiscs?

As all non-Discraft Ultimfate Discs, Eurodisc is more stable (falls towards Inside quicker), and actually the Eurodisc is balanced very well, which others are not. It is more stable than Discraft, which is a good thing, but not too stable like Daredevil.

How will it affect players?

Eurodisc is in general slightly forgiving on unclean technique. This means it’s easier to throw for beginners. Also, Eurodiscs are easier to huck than Discraft. They stay upright and float longer. Discraft requires a much better&”clean" technique. Starting from zero, players will be able to handle the Eurodisc better than Discraft, and being able to huck easier will result in a more interesting game in general.
