This Puck is bad to the bone. Small Axe Disc Co. tested a heavier stiffer plastic blend for what they call the Kansas City PROto. This special edition uses the same Ratchet driver and Fat Bwai putter molds, but each disc's approximate 9 extra grams of weight makes these a mini golfer's dream!
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.
Please Note: The Plastic for the Kansas City PROto discs is super hard. In fact, these may be the most durable minis ever produced. Great for Mini players and enthusiasts, less great for those wanting to use the puck for storage. While these discs lock together and come apart like traditional Pucks, they fit tighter and require more force to separate. If you are interested in the Puck more for storage, you should look at the other, non Kansas City PROto pucks.
The Ratchet is Small Axe's long-range mini driver. In Kansas City PROto plastic is weighs in at approx. 60g (normally 51g) as the heaviest flying driver in mini disc golf and sports a super large 4 3/8" diameter. Its extra heavy weight, 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. In Kansas City PROto this mini monster weighs in at approx. 63g (normally 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 extra 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!
This prototype Puck features the limited edition 1st Run stamps, however is from an entirely different blend than other 1st Runs. They are most easily identified by their heavier weight and stiff plastic.
