Kastaplast Grym Plastics

Every disc golfer knows: a disc’s value is defined by its plastic. And in this department, Kastaplast is king. They are renowned for crafting a perfect blend of comfort and durability. While each disc manufacturing company is known to boast about their plastic quality, Kastaplast genuinely deserves the praise.

  • K1: This premium plastic melds exceptional durability with a unique soft and grippy feel, a characteristic that distinguishes it from its counterparts.
  • K1 Soft: A gummier, more flexible blend engineered for a superior grip in wet or cold conditions.
  • K1 Glow: Ideal for night golf, this blend radiates a bright, long-lasting glow. Reviewers mention a tendency for the Grym to fly more understably in this plastic variant.

How It Flies: Kastaplast Grym Flight Numbers

Interested in the disc’s flight profile? Here’s how it looks in numbers:

  • Speed: 13
  • Glide: 5
  • Turn: -2
  • Fade: 2

The Grym works wonders for both moderately powerful players and power arms, requiring significant snap to unlock the full -2 turn. A perfect stepping stone, this disc assists budding players to escalate their distance game. As your throwing form improves, expect the Grym to deliver increased turn and glide.

The Grym By Numbers: Dimensions

  • Diameter: 21.1cm
  • Height: 1.8cm
  • Rim Depth: 1.1cm
  • Rim Width: 2.2cm

The Grym’s understable distance driver design includes a standard shallow rim. The 2.2cm rim width is crafted to a thickness that doesn’t intimidate players with smaller hands. While the disc generally presents a low profile and a relatively flat top, some runs have displayed a varying top, with an inverted “puddle” shape in certain editions.

A Look Back: History of Kastaplast Grym

Kastaplast broke into the disc golf world with their first disc, the Rask, in 2014. The Grym, alongside the Kaxe and the highly acclaimed Berg, made their entrance in the subsequent year. The company has carved a niche in the market with their innovative designs and superior quality plastics.

Who’s It For? Skill Level Recommendations

  • Novice: Due to its wide rim and higher speed, the Grym may not be the best fit for absolute beginners.
  • Intermediate: An excellent initiation into the realm of maximum distance drivers. Reliable, workable, and a good match for players at this skill level.
  • Advanced: For long turnovers, straight-line drives, and tailwind bombs, this understable driver performs perfectly. It can provide maximum distance under ideal conditions.
  • Pro: Many pros gravitate towards the Grym’s overstable sibling, the Grym-X.

And there you have it. The Grym by Kastaplast. A disc designed to soar, aimed at taking your disc golf game to greater heights.
