"You foolish little beast"
The Moomin artwork series
Kastaplast is happy to present a collaboration with the Moomin brand. Growing up in Sweden, characters like the Moomintroll, Little My, Snufkin, Hemulen, Stinky, Snorkmaiden, Fillyjonk, Sniff and the Hattifatteners are characters we all know. To say the least, Moomin has been part of our childhood, which makes our new collaboration with the Moomin brand very special to us. In a way, we feel that the everyday outdoor struggles in the Moomin valley can be recognized at the disc golf course too. The magic, the hope and the despair.
Moomin was created in the 1940’s by the Finnish writer and artist Tove Jansson and have grown in popularity ever since. The books have been translated into more than fifty languages. In this disc series, the artworks will be based on the artist’s drawings, and the script font is based on her handwriting. Various Moomin characters will appear on the stamps, as well as some words of wisdom heard from the Moomin valley.
K1 Soft Berg
Known for it's lack of glide and good high-speed stability, yet without tons of face, the Berg is a slow and straight flyer that won't play trics on you. Even on windy days.
Berg is designed for distinct shots, where you don’t need to worry about the disc hoovering far passed the basket. The disc features an ergonomic thumb track which is prominent on the top side while not being noticeable at the bottom. This makes it feel very different from any other putter. Berg is Swedish for mountain.
Suitable for: Windy days, fearless putts and distinct approach shots.
K1 Soft Plastic
Our plastic K1 Soft is similar to K1, but more flexy and grippy. Just as with K1, our plastic will come in both translucent and solid colors.

KASTAPLAST IS AN INDEPENDENT DISC MANUFACTURER BASED IN STOCKHOLM, WITH THE AIM TO CREATE DISCS AND GEAR OF HIGHEST QUALITY.
Our brand is dedicated to the disc golf culture, the people, the lifestyle and all the fun times all around the disc golf world. We look at disc golf as a grassroot movement with its own unique identity; characterized by spontaneity, individuality and freedom.
Starting off in 2011 as a small prototyping workshop, driven by the fun factor of experimenting, the business soon grew out of the basement as Jonas Lindberg was joined by Anders Källström and Per Jonson. Still, the “workshop style” of developing discs has stayed, with a mix of computer flight simulation, research and extensive prototyping.
With our team of players, currently represented in ten countries, as well as many collaborators of various kinds, we feel that the Kastaplast of today is so much more than just a company. It’s rather a community, with a common liking for disc golf and the mint green color.
Kastaplast is determined to keep the ecological footprint as low as possible. One step in this direction is the use of solar energy that today empowers a major part of our production. Recycling is another. Moving in the direction of sustainability is important to us and it is an ongoing process.
It’s a long journey and it has just started.
