New releases: Elasto Plastic, VIP Harp, BT Hard Shield6th November 2014
Westside is preparing to release a new plastic at end November. First two discs made in new Elasto plastic are Westside Elasto Giant and Westside Elasto World. Elasto plastic is transparent and flexible plastic that is good also in cold climate conditions.
Together with Elasto plastic we are releasing BT Hard version of Westside Shield putter.
Our overstable putter - mid-range Westside VIP Harp is being released right now during first week of November.
Westside Discs next releases will be on 1 March 2015. We are planning to release two all-new molds and one remade mold at that time. The all-new molds are an overstable midrange called Westside Bard and an understable control driver called Westside Seer. These will both be made in VIP and Tournament plastics. The remade mold is the good old Swan 1 which will come back. On March 1 it will be released using name Westside BT Soft Swan 1 Reborn. We are applying PDGA approvals to these three new molds in December.
Article series by David Feldberg started24th August 2014
Former World Champion David Feldberg has started an article series at our websites Tournaments and Pros section. We have asked Dave to write about very different subjects compared to his articles at another Trilogy website. The Westside-articles are meant to be timeless, meaning they contain information and advice that does not go old. Westside is very pleased to release this kind of valuable advice from one of worlds top players, who is a well known fan of Westside discs.
