Disc Golf Discs similar to Remix Discs on Amazon – Brian Moon

Remix Disc Golf is a brand of disc golf discs that I have only been able to find on Amazon. The seller on Amazon is named Disc Golf Goods. On its Amazon store page, they sell MVP, Axiom, Remix and other brands of disc golf equipment. The detailed seller information on Amazon says the “Business Name” is MVP Pro Shop, LLC. It is pretty common knowledge that these discs are manufacturered and sold by MVP. The speculation is that they are molds made for other companies (Mint, Thought Space Athletics, and possibly others) which they are selling under the Remix name on Amazon. Many of the reviews mention the discs have cosmetic defects or look like they have been used. That has led some to think these are factory seconds. The cool thing is, they cost less than any of the MVP brands or third party brands for which they are known to manufacturer discs. The discs sell from $9.95 to $12.95.

One thing people are always trying to figure out is what disc from another brand was renamed for a Remix disc. Well, it’s not an exact science. Some of them could be rejected molds. So, while they may be very similar to another disc, it could be a mold that was meant for another disc that was not used for that disc. This is pure speculation based on talking to people in the know for almost 28 years of playing disc golf.

Now, there is a site that already has a feature that lets one search for similar discs. It is called Try Discs. Their recommendation engine seems to favor flight number similarities over measurements. And we all know that flight numbers are kind of made up. I decided to use the PDGA specs for approved discs to find the discs most similar to the Remix discs available on Amazon. I did not limit the search to brands that are known or believed to be manufactured by MVP. Perhaps you have a favorite disc from another brand that is similar to a Remix disc. There are more Remix discs approved by the PDGA than are on thist list. However, they are not for sale anywhere I can find. I am not claiming that any of the discs will fly like one another. I am solely comparing the measuerments has observed by the PDGA.

If you are interested in some reviews of Remix Discs, Pete Collins has some on his YouTube channel.

All values are centimeters except rim configuration. To determine similarity, diameter and inside rim diameter must to be +/- 0.5cm, height, rim depth, and rim thickness must be +/- 0.2cm (it was 0.1cm in an earlier version of the blog post), and rim configuration must be +/- 1.

For details on these specifications, see the PDGA Technical Standards document.
