Ledgestone LE Disc Schedule Announced

Saturday, February 27, 2021

We are happy to announce the molds that will be released to vendors for the 2021 Ledgestone LE schedule. This year we are releasing every single mold that Discraft has available. These discs will be released over 3 different waves and the list is subject to change. The plan would call for approximate releases in February, April and June. Infinite Discs will once again be the official vendor of the event and will have by far the largest selection of Ledgestone discs. This announcement is the 11th and penultimate announcement in our Twelve Days of Ledgestone promotion.

Obviously the biggest news in this release is that the event will do a limited release for every single mold that Discraft has available for production. “After the 2020 event, I had a crazy idea to do a Ledgestone release for every single disc that Discraft has ever made. I knew that wasn’t going to work, because some molds are simply not available anymore. But my next idea was to run one of every mold available, including the out of production molds. The day before 2020 Ledgestone ended, I teased this idea to Bob Julio, Discraft’s golf manager, and he chuckled,” stated Heinold. After weeks of working on ideas, he gave Mike Wanger, Discraft’s CEO, a quick phone call. “I honestly had never called Mike before because I just usually deal with Bob, so I had to get Mike’s number from someone. I went through the list of all of the molds that I thought could be available, and he cheerfully gave me the answers. He didn’t really ask what I needed the information for, but he probably suspected something was up,” finished Heinold. He then met with Mike and Bob in October at the Discraft factory and pitched his idea. After making a few minor adjustments to certain plastic combinations, Mike and Bob approved every single request. “I was honestly floored. I didn’t full expect them to say yes to everything, but they were very open to what I was asking for and they got behind my idea.” Heinold then spent the next 6 weeks working on design ideas with the various designers, and that process is expected to finish up by the end of the year. Production has already begun on the 2021 releases, and vendors gobbled up the discs at record paces. Within a few days, 35 vendors had bought up all of the 2021 releases.

Coming up with the disc schedule is always a fun challenge for Ledgestone TD Nate Heinold. “The process really starts with asking people what they want to see. We do some polls online and then gauge what has sold well in the past. We also evaluate new molds as they come out,” said Heinold. The idea behind running all of the molds in Discraft’s arsenal was because some of the most popular Ledgestone runs have been molds that don’t get run a lot. “A lot of these older discs have great markets, and sometimes releasing these older discs in limited runs (in a newer plastic) will reinvigorate fans of that disc, or bring new fans to certain discs,” continued Heinold. 

The Ledgestone fundraiser discs are one of the primary fundraising methods for the tournament. “All of the vendor support for these discs really helps make Ledgestone what it is. We are extremely grateful to all of the vendors who have supported us over the years,” said Heinold. Without further delay, here is this year’s Disc Schedule, subject to change:

The tournament will be releasing 29 limited edition runs, most of which will be released at the event in August or online at the Ledgestone retail website. This will include a special LSWT Undertaker, the 2021 Grateful Buzzz, a Midnight Buzzz, Rubber Blend Wasp, CryZtal Raptor, Big Z Hornet, Z Swirl Tour Series Buzzz-GT, Rubber Blend Comet, Ti Swirl Avenger SS, and many more. Stay tuned for all of the most up to date information.
