The speed... the spirit... the excitement of Ultimate!
Discraft is passionate about Ultimate, and that's why the Discraft 175 gram Ultra-Star has been the world standard for Ultimate since 1991. Today there are 4.9 million Ultimate players in the U.S. alone, and virtually all of them throw the Ultra-Star.
Discraft's 175 gram Ultra-Star Sportdisc was created and introduced to tournament play in 1981.
Ten years later the Ultra-Star was selected as the official disc of USA Ultimate, a position that it has held for over 20 years.

Additional UltraStar Mold Approved For Championship Level Competition
USA Ultimate has announced the championship level of approval for a second UltraStar mold. Known as the "Web" mold, it is an exact clone of the original with exception of some different text engraving. After rigorous testing by the USA Ultimate's Flight Test Pool, discs created from the Web mold were given the nod. The result for players will be improved customer service and more custom printing choices.
"What has become known as the UltraStar Web Mold was engineered to exacting specifications in order to help us meet the growing demands of the ultimate community" said Pad Timmons, Director of Discraft Ultimate Operations. "Regardless of which mold your disc came from, you are throwing the UltraStar; same performance, same flight, same feel, same consistency. USA Ultimateís Flight Test Pool results are a testament to that consistency, and we are excited over this new opportunity to increase production and better serve the athletes."
