6/5/24 Eco + In-Store

In our quest to become disc golf’s most eco-friendly retail shop, we’ve added a new category on our website. The ECO click. Just click ECO in the Products Category when shopping and you will be taken to a sub-category that has all of our eco-friendlier options. 

In-Store Deals
Why would I go into the store when I can order everything right here online? The answer is… exclusive in-store deals and access to items not available on the website and more! 

  • We offer a large selection of factory misprints that won’t ever be on the website. These discs are so cheap it’s not cost efficient to add them to the website. This allows us to get new discs for you at the lowest cost.
  • Feel the disc in your hand. Hows the plastic? Do you like the grip and rim width? 
  • Larger selection of discs that haven’t been added to the website yet.
  • See new dyes that haven’t been added to the website yet.
  • Watch dyes being made.
  • Disc golf is always on the TV. We’ve got Disc Golf Network! On Sundays, feel free to stop by and watch the top pro’s doing their thing live between12-4pm.
  • Walk out with your new disc and go play today!

Coming Soon: 

  • A huge MVP Disc Sports order.
  • Zuca Disc Golf Carts, which will only be available in-store. 

Of course, if you can’t make it in to the shop in-person, you can still access great deals by signing up for our monthly newsletter. Just go to the Contact page and send us an e-mail with the word Yes and you’ll be added to our list for event updates, news dyes and special discounts for our loyal customers.   

Thanks so much for shopping with us! We really appreciate your business! 


3/6/24 Eco-Friendlier plastics? 

What’s the deal with eco-friendlier plastics in disc golf? We all know plastic is bad. It takes thousands of years to break down while it pollutes the oceans, land, and air. Disc golfers know there is no substitute to replace petroleum-based plastics for flight, durability, and grip – yet.

At Bill’s Flying Discs we’re doing our best to sort through the noise and bring you the best and most eco-friendly options. That’s why we’ve partnered with the most environmentally conscious brands to bring you the eco-disc list. 

AGL Disc Golf offers discs made with up to 30% recycled materials (some even have hemp in them) and offer offsets that plant trees to help replace your carbon footprint. 

Discraft is now offering recycled ESP plastic. Made from ESP plastic regrinds. 

Elevation Disc Golf manufactures discs made of silicone rubber. NO plastics in these discs at all. In my experience, they take some getting used to throwing, but you’ll love the grip and how they sit down and resist the roll away. 

MVP Disc Sports has R2 Plastics. These black discs are made from regrinds of plastics used in the molding process. They fly like the MVP Neutron plastics. 

Trash Panda Disc Golf. As pioneers in this realm, all of their discs are made from 100% recycled plastics. 

Other companies that offer eco-friendlier options are EV-7 Disc Golf (now offering putters made from regrinds) and Innova Disc Golf, now making eco-runs from factory regrinds.

Rumor has it a new company, Ocean Discs, will be coming to the market soon.  Their discs are made of plastic waste coming directly from the oceans. 

Purchasing and trading used discs and factory misprints are another good way to lower your plastic footprint.

Bill’s Flying Discs can recycle your old discs! Drop off your beaten, broken, and battered discs at our San Francisco location. In cooperation with Trash Panda Disc Golf, we’re now offering the Trash Panda Disc Recycling Program. Turn your old plastic into a new disc!



2/24 Thank You's!


It’s rapidly approaching the end of our first year in business. With the help of our friends and family we’ve been able to greatly “advance the disc down the fairway”.  In our first year, we’ve created lots of new dyes, held a couple pop-up events, built our inventory of the best and most sustainable disc golf products, built a website, started an Instagram page, started a Youtube channel and soon we’ll be opening the first disc golf only shop in San Francisco!

My wife, Julie Shumate has been instrumental in helping by becoming our wholesale contact person, chief compliance person and sales associate. Thanks so much babe! My daughter Ella continues to teach this old goat how to properly post on Instagram and encourages me to keep it up. 

I’d like to thank my good buddy, and first sponsored player on team BFD, Eric Davis for always being there for events, traveling to new disc golf courses, adding valuable input and helping me with my game. 

A huge thanks to the disc golf community as a whole. It’s been such a positive experience being welcomed by the San Francisco Disc Golf Club and the East Bay Disc Golf Club. I'd also like to recognize the amazing dyers who share their work, processes and information on YouTube: TDIDDY Army, Daddy Mac Dyes and Jory’s Fly Dye to name a few. 

 A shout out to our great wholesale partners which include AGL Discs, Discraft, Elevation Disc Golf, Flight Towel, Mint Discs, MVP Disc Sports and Trash Panda Disc Golf.  

Most of all, I’d like to thank all of you for buying our stuff and attending our events.

It’s my goal to get you the best gear, coolest dyes and the most sustainable options to help you further your game. Please stick with us as we continue to grow, offer you more products, insight and fun events.

Many thanks and, as always, happy hucking!

Bill and the Team
