Millennium and Hyzer Bomb to join forces with event tour and bag manufacturing.3/20/13
Millennium Golf Discs is excited to announce the teaming-up with Hyzer Bomb to manufacture high-quality disc golf bags and bring a tour of events through the lower Midwest and potentially beyond. This team effort helps both Millennium and Hyzer Bomb move forward with big plans in 2013 to bring products and fun events to many disc golfers.
Millennium has been interested in expanding into bag manufacturing for quite some time. By working with the team at Hyzer Bomb, this goal will be realized quickly with the launch of the “Millennium Edition” of Hyzer Bomb’s incredible line of bags. Plans are to immediately begin manufacturing the Flak bag, a tour-ready backpack which can carry over 25 discs with plenty of packable storage room to spare. The team at Hyzer Bomb has done a tremendous job designing a premium backpack bag. We couldn’t be more excited to have our name as a part of it and to help make this great backpack available to more disc golfers. In addition to the Flak, the teams are collaborating on the design of another backpack prototype which we hope to finalize this year, and we’re looking at the potential of manufacturing a sling bag as well. The Millennium Edition - Hyzer Bomb Flak is available for pre-orders immediately. Inventory is expected to arrive for distribution in May. Visit us on facebook for periodic updates on manufacturing.
The other big news is the announcement of Millennium’s sponsorship of the Hyzer Bomb “Bombs Away” 2013 RV tour. The Bombs Away tour has been a big hit. Wes Briscoe, Jeremy Glossup and crew are some of the most passionate disc golf advocates in the industry, and they’ve already done a lot to help move our sport forward. They will be hitting the road in a Hyzer Bomb + Millennium adorned RV bringing both recreational and PDGA sanctioned events to disc golfers throughout the Midwest. The team will also be hosting 2-disc “Millennium Challenge” events as well as Millennium disc demos, clinics by professionals and give-away contests through the end of the year. Millennium and Hyzer Bomb will proudly feature our discs, bags and apparel on site at every event. Our goal with this tour is to create a fun disc golf experience to introduce beginners and demonstrate to the more experienced players the benefits of highly controllable, premium quality discs.
