Meet the Kastaplast Guld is an overstable high-speed driver designed for power players. Nestled in the same family as the Innova Destroyer, Discraft Zeus, or Discmania DD3, the Guld boasts a fine blend of subtle high-speed turn, expansive glide, and assertive low-speed fade. Whether it’s in stock and up for grabs, we’ll help you gauge if this is the ideal driver for you.

Kastaplast Guld Plastics

Kastaplast is a name cherished by disc connoisseurs worldwide, all thanks to its stunning yet enduring plastic blends. While every brand claims the superiority of its plastic quality, Kastaplast might just be holding the winning card.

  • K1: Harmoniously fusing unbeatable durability with a supple, grippy texture. Most premium plastics are hard and slippery, but Kastaplast strikes the perfect balance with a sturdy blend that retains some flexibility and a pleasing hand feel.
  • K1 Glow: Possessing a vibrant and enduring glow, this blend remains illuminated for numerous holes during night golf games.

Kastaplast Guld Flight Numbers


These figures indicate the Guld as a classic, pro-level workhorse distance driver. This disc offers the maneuverability, forward penetration, and predictable low-speed fade necessary for accurate long-range shots. The Guld’s subtle high-speed turn and mid-flight anhyzer drift would be effectively leveraged with a power range of about 375-400 feet.

For those with less power, an overstable flight with a firm hyzer finish is what to expect. To maximize distance, most will need to push the Guld on a forced flex line, making it a wind-battling utility disc for intermediate-level players. Moreover, high-torque power forehand throwers can utilize the Guld’s mild high-speed turn for maximum distance lines.

Rim Depth1.2cm
Rim Width2.3cm

The Guld’s solid rim calls for a sturdy and assured grip. Most 13-speed discs like the Discraft Nuke and Innova Boss come with a maximum legal rim width of 2.5cm. In contrast, the Guld offers a comparable speed with a more manageable 2.3cm rim. It also features a pop-top dome, but the flexibility of the Kastaplast plastic ensures maximum hand comfort.

Historical Snapshot

In the quest for a flagship pro-level distance driver, Kastaplast introduced the Guld in 2022. It is their fourth max distance driver, joining ranks with the understable Grym, the stable Grym-X, and the overstable Rask. Early impressions have been promising, but only time will tell if the Guld proves its worth.

Recommendations by Skill Level

  • Novice: The Guld is not recommended for beginners as they may form incorrect playing habits while trying to control this disc.
  • Intermediate: As an overstable utility disc, the Guld will exhibit increased turn and glide over time.
  • Advanced: This disc has the potential to become the go-to high-speed driver, especially on open courses where raw distance matters more than hitting gaps.
  • Pro: Kastaplast allows their sponsored pros to throw a mixed bag due to a limited lineup. While several pros still prefer the Innova Destroyer, the Guld is gradually making its way to the top of the pile.
