Silicon is an overstable midrange that will fight the wind and provide you with a trusty fade. I has soft curves with a flat top making powergrip feel amazing and a relatively high parting line that keeps the majority of its mass in the plane of the flight plate which makes it wobble-resistant for forehands. Release it flat and expect a mostly straight flight with a very dependable fade. This disc thrives in the woods, where it carves flex lines and hyzers with sidearms and backhands alike, but it also works really well for headwind approaches in the open. Silicon is a low profile midrange with a curvy and extremely smooth feel in the hand.
Being pretty flat, overstable and torque resistent, it works well for both forehands and backhands, and is ideal for flex lines, hyzers or straight shots with a consistent fade towards the end. With it’s 21,6 cm diameter, it has some decent glide and distance for an overstable midrange.
For the design we have capitalized on some of the things we have learned from developing Hydrogen and Bohrium. Like Hydrogen, the flight plate is thin towards the middle and gets thicker towards the rim, which increases the moment of inertia, resulting in a slightly straighter flight.
Flight ratings are 5 | 4 | 0 | 3
α-Solid is our go-to premium plastic, and it is developed with throwing in mind. It is slightly gummy, has a shiny finish, superb grip and great durability, so you can trust that the disc will not change drastically in stability for the first many tree hits. The appearance is opaque, and the colors appear very vivid in this material.
- Super durable
- Vivid, opaque colors with a shiny surface
- Takes dye really well

Løft discs is much more than a kickstarter project. Our vision for the future is to make the highest quality discs for all purposes and push the boundaries for disc golf discs.
Being founded in the summer of 2020, Løft Discs might seem like another crazy Covid-19 isolation idea. But it is far from that. Through half a year of collaboration with Kastaplast on his bachelor's project in mechanical engineering, founder Niels Sørensen developed the beginning of what today is our flight path simulator. With the assistance of good friend, economist and founder, Asger Sandahl, they succeeded in actually simulating flight paths of discs in 3D. This sparked the idea of using the tool to develop discs, instead of relying solely on assumptions and epxperience.
Soon the idea of optimizing a putter with regards to flying as straight as possible was born. They joined forces with Kasper Jakobsen, who, with his education in IT and product development and experience in video production seemed like the perfect match.
Since then, it has been all hard work, and Løft Discs is more than ready to present their ideas to the world!
