Disc Golf Reviews "Best of" Awards
This is a list of web awards where I give props to the discs and equipment that I think epitomize the best in quality and value of the products on the market. A list of previous winners can be found at the bottom of the page. I will try to keep this list revised so that it only includes standard production models and stays current as discs are discontinued.
