Feast your eyes on a modern rarity -- a true prototype set from 2012's new Small Axe Disc Golf Company. Small Axe made a splash in the Disc Golf Marketplace with the launch of their innovative interlocking mini disc set, The Puck. The Citrus Prototype Pucks represent the first bulk-produced prototypes of a firm chalky plastic blend, produced before the tackier 1st Run Small Axe discs.
These discs are identifiable by the slightly larger molding notch (a.k.a. Belly Button) that appears on the bottom edge of the Fat Bwai Putter and Ratchet Driver, the smaller raised center mark on the bottom of each disc, and a small C-Shaped indentation in the dome. Although they carry the 1st Run stamps, these protos have a distinct tactile quality that sets them apart.
Named Citrus Protos because of their orange and lemon yellow colors, these Pucks were produced in small quantities, with fewer than 200 of each color produced. Based on the initial popularity of these products, these true protos are destined to be a cool collectible.
The Small Axe Puck is a secure storage container formed by Small Axe's two interlocking mini disc models, the Ratchet Driver and Fat Bwai Putter. The discs lock together using a patent-pending design for a tight and secure fit that is unmatched, with a storage cavity approximately 3 3/8" around by 3/4" deep.
The Puck is water resistant for secure storage of anything you want to keep clean and dry. Despite the tight fit created by these two interlocking discs, the Puck opens easily by wedging the putter edge upward. Molded from buoyant food-grade plastic and snapped together with a water resistant seal, the discs individually float in water and the Puck set floats carrying all but the heaviest cargo.
The Ratchet is Small Axe's long-range mini driver. It weighs in at approx. 51g as the heaviest flying driver in mini disc golf and sports a super large 4 3/8" diameter. Its sharp wing design and large bead help lend stability for hard throws and windy conditions. Put some snap on the Ratchet for a nice controlled S-curve. The name Ratchet is Jamaican slang for a switchblade knife -- sharp and concealed, this fits the Ratchet Driver to a tee.
The Fat Bwai (pronounced Fat Boy) is Small Axe's putt and approach mini. This mini monster weighs in at approx. 54g as the heaviest flying mini ever made and sports a super large 4 3/8" diameter. It reflects the tall even-radius aerodynamic design favored by many disc golfers, and its heavy weight lends stability, wind resistance, and that drop to help range your shot. The Fat Bwai is a straight flyer out of the gate and holds a beefy line for those sneaky hyzer and anhyzer shots. The name Fat Bwai is Jamaican slang for a big jolly friend -- just what you want in a putter.
Small Axe is bringing disc culture to the mainstream with this innovative, fun, and utility-minded product. Makes a great gift or accessory for discers and soon-to-be discers alike!
