The Tasmanian Devil was our most popular mold when we first introduced it’s prototype version. We have since redesigned the mold to be flatter, more consistent and now use some of the best polymers available. The (Taz) is an overstable fairway driver capable of handling the highest arm speeds and battling through any headwind you may find yourself up against. You can trust the Taz to never turn over unless forced to and it will always have a very reliable strong fade finish. Players have found this to be a must have disc for sidearm shots.

Our Nuclear blend is our premium GLOW plastic. It is one of the brightest glow plastics on the market. Produced with a hi-tech premium glow based plastic, it provides outstanding performance and durability while lighting up dark fairways. Nuclear offers the same best in class durability and grip as our meteor plastic and the most over stable flight out of any of our plastic blends.

The species has been listed as endangered by the IUCN Red List in 2008, following the outbreak of the Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD), which has spread through the species in the past 8 years
The DFTD is a parasitic cancer which was first described in 1996. It is extremely aggressive, and is transmitted between devils through fighting and other means. Some high-density populations which were affected suffered a mortality rate of close to 100%. Tasmanian devil numbers have dropped by over 70% since the outbreak, and around 80 % of the remaining population is infected.
The disease is usually transmitted when one devil bites another which is infected, directly receiving the infection. Other transmission methods include consumption of an infected carcass or sharing food.
The disease begins as lumps or sores around the lips and mouth of the devil, and spreads rapidly. Cancerous tumours develop around the face which often spread over the entire body. Once a devil has been infected with the disease, it usually dies within six months due to organ failure, secondary infection, or starvation caused by the inability to feed.
