HyzerBomb disc golf recently announced they were releasing their own line of disc golf discs. The announcement came on their blog at the end of July and they are finally able to give some more details. We reached out to HyzerBomb right away to see what disc golfers can expect from the new line of discs and while they were wanting to talk to us right away, they had to wait until the time was right before they spilled the beans. Today, the time is finally right.
HyzerBomb was started in September 2011 by Wes Briscoe and Jeremy Glossup. Since then they have formed a team of disc golfers, released a line of apparel, bags, and now their own line of discs. The last two years have certainly been busy for Briscoe and Glossup.
To get the details on the line of discs, we talked with the HyzerBomb owners to see just what it was all about.
All Things Disc Golf: Certainly exciting news to announce your own line of discs. When and how did the idea for your own line of discs start?
Wes Briscoe and Jeremy Glossup: Myself (Wes Briscoe) and Jeremy Glossup have had the idea since we founded the company in 2011 but it was always a dream rather than a reality. Luckily, we were able to plug in with the right people, at the right time. This just would not have been made possible unless we built our brand up the last two years.
All Things Disc Golf: HyzerBomb has been around for a little while now. Most recently, you guys have been making some waves with your Flak3 bag. Why get into the disc business?
Wes Briscoe and Jeremy Glossup: We are in love with the sport of Disc Golf. Each person on staff takes great pride and joy in the game.
We wanted to use our backgrounds and form something bigger than ourselves. From the start, we wanted HyzerBomb to become a service to the disc golf world. We live by the motto “like what you do, and do what you like”. And we really like disc golf. Discs are the way players are connected to the game and we want to be an all inclusive equipment company that can fit all players.
All Things Disc Golf: What are your goals with the new line of discs?
Wes Briscoe and Jeremy Glossup: We want a brand with some spunk. We also want our disc line to match up with our buddies at Millennium. We hope to fill some gaps in their current line up and offer some new types of plastic. If you have not caught up with Millennium, you should! They are operating under new owners and have great ideas on advancing the game as well as growing the Millennium line up. Our discs won’t be copies or duplicates, however we will produce some out-of-production molds that are fan favorites.
All Things Disc Golf: How did you guys team up with Millennium and start that relationship?
Wes Briscoe and Jeremy Glossup: We had spoken before and have always really enjoyed the molds and plastic. After meeting the owners at World Amateur Doubles we knew for sure we would have a great future together. We just clicked right away and had great ideas on getting new products out together.
All Things Disc Golf: What will the plastics be called? What will they be like?
Wes Briscoe and Jeremy Glossup: We are offering a new type of plastic that has some flexibility to it. Our manufacturer has been great in working with us to develop this new type. Total we will have 3 plastics to start out with. We will have to wait on official names until we release those discs.
All Things Disc Golf: Are you planning on a full line of discs? What is/are your first disc(s)? Any names yet?
Wes Briscoe and Jeremy Glossup: First up is a putter. It’s a mold based off the old fan favorite “Tank” that Innova molded a few years back. This Panzer version of the Tank is a great windy day putter and holds a straight line even into a head wind. This disc will be followed up with a re-release of the original Tank. The Tank sadly went out of production and we are pumped to bring it back to life. Talking with Tank collectors from around the USA and they are going crazy on this disc finally making a come back. The Panzer and Tank will be available in early September.
Our third disc will be an over stable midrange, the “Mortar”. This beadless mold in our flexible plastic makes a killer approach disc that is so reliable and consistent; even in all types of wind. This disc will be available mid September.
All Things Disc Golf: What are the suggested price points?
Wes Briscoe and Jeremy Glossup: They will vary with the grades of plastic. $12-$18.
All Things Disc Golf: How has your process in making the Flak bag helped you in the disc manufacturing process?
Wes Briscoe and Jeremy Glossup: The Flak has been such a game changer for us as a company. It’s kind of what we are known for now and it helped build up our brand. The manufacturing process is not for the faint of heart and even though we have made mistakes, we would not change anything to date. I think we are growing and improving daily as a company. We have had amazing feedback on the Flak3 and we are excited to continue to make killer bags. This wasn’t our first bag and won’t be our last.
All Things Disc Golf: What is the timeline for the discs?
Wes Briscoe and Jeremy Glossup: Putters and midrange discs first. It’s the bread and butter of the game. Often, players try to do too much with high speed drivers and I think we can agree you score well with putting.
Later this year we hope to get out a few more discs but no set timeline. We are working on a new mold fairway driver but it needs more time develop and test.
All Things Disc Golf: Overall, how excited are you to get these out on the market?
Wes Briscoe and Jeremy Glossup: We talk about it everyday. It’s what we eat, sleep, and do. We cannot wait to get this new chapter of HB started with the community. The entire sport has been outstanding and encouraging! We feel so honored that we have great supporters all over the world now and they helped us build and grow HyzerBomb into what it is today. I can’t thank them enough.
Thanks to Briscoe and Glossup for talking with us. We know there is even more that they would love to share, but they want to hold onto that information for later on down the road. Be sure to follow HyzerBomb on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
