Millennium Releases New ET Omega Celebrating Clearwater Disc Golf Store’s 20th Anniversary

Millennium Releases New ET Omega Celebrating Clearwater Disc Golf Store’s 20th Anniversary

This month Millennium will release the ET Omega which is a new medium-firm, grippy plastic blend in the popular Omega putter mold.  The release is being made through collaboration with the Clearwater Disc Golf Store in celebration of both their 20th year in business and their long-standing relationship with Millennium.  The owner of the Clearwater store is a huge Omega AP fan and collector.  With this run we aimed for a throwback feel to older Omega AP runs, and we feel it most closely resembles the firmness of the 1.6 Omega AP. 

The first run of ET Omegas will be available in a variety of colors and will feature commemorative artwork and a bottom stamp that is only offered through Clearwater Disc Golf Store at a Suggested Retail Price of $14.99.  A very limited amount of Lunar (Glow) ET Omegas will be available as well for a Suggested Retail Price of $19.99.  Visit www.clearwaterdiscgolfstore.com to get your hands on the “First Contact” of these exclusive ET Omegas.

2015 is shaping up to be the “year of the Omega.”  In addition to the Brinster Edition SuperSoft and the ET Omega release with Clearwater, Millennium has plans to release more new Omega models later this year.

Millennium Wraps a Fun and Successful Holiday Season

Millennium Wraps a Fun and Successful Holiday Season

Millennium had an exciting holiday season by sponsoring two tournaments, while several members of our sponsored team had some impressive results. 

The fun began the week before Christmas when the Taylor Park Disc Golf Club in Largo, FL threw a "Merry Millennium" holiday-themed event as part of their weekly handicap.  Over 80 players showed up to play in the event and each participant received an Omega putter with a customized club logo on it.  The Kitchen brothers from Team Millennium were at it again.  This time it was Jake Kitchen who took the crown while cashing in his first career ace, and turning in the best raw score of the day.  The event concluded with a massive Ring Of Fire of which Dylan Livrago won the spoils.  Top finishers by division are listed further below.

Then over the first weekend of the new year, our newest teammember Chris Farnham took home the win on the heels of a 1000 rated final round at the First Chance Points event of the Throw the Line Tour in Grand Prairie, TX. 

Meanwhile Millennium was a sponsor of the annual Tocobaga Games B-Tier at Maximo park, waterside in St Petersburg, FL.  It was a beautiful weekend for disc golf, and our very own Austin Elmore fought back with a nice final round to finish in 3rd place in the Advanced Men division.

It was a fun start to the year, and we're looking forward to an exciting year in 2015.

Commemorative Edition 40th Run Omega SuperSoft Available


6/26/14

Commemorative Edition 40th Run Omega SuperSoft Available

The 40th Run of the Classic Omega SuperSoft Available Now.

To us, reaching the 40th production run is pretty special.  The Omega SuperSoft putter is the first of our models to do so, and we found it deserving of its own commemorative hotstamp.  We were excited to work on the stamp with renowned disc golf artist, John Dorn, and very happy with how it turned out. The Omega SuperSoft is one of the most popular putters of all-time, thrown by both beginners and champions.  Join us in celebrating this benchmark occasion by getting one for yourself.  But do so quickly while they're available, because you will not see this hotstamp on any of the future runs!

Did you know? Ever wonder what the numbers on Millennium Golf Discs stands for?  We number each of our runs and label them on the face of all of our discs (with a few minor exceptions).  The manufacturing process has many variables which can affect the outcome of the final product, and because of this we label the run numbers on our discs as a courtesy to players.  In doing this, a large following of collectors and fans has grown over the years, and certain run numbers have garnered some rather large cult followings.  

How to read a run number: on the face of most Millennium discs, you'll find a number that looks like this, "1.20."  The "1" stands for "first mold" of a disc, and the "20" stands for "20th run."  If and when a mold is modified, it would change to "2" which stands for "2nd variation of a mold."  Example: The Omega Big Bead is a variation of the Omega mold, so on all Omega Big Beads you'll see run numbers represented as "2.x."

Brinster Sentinel Set to Release on March 28th, 2014

Plastic Test... Check.  Flight Test... Check.  Stamp Artwork Approval...Check.  We had a blast collaborating with the 2013 USDGC Champion, Steve Brinster, on this disc.  The Quantum Sentinel is Steve's go-to Midrange Driver, and this production run lives up to all of Steve's world class expectations.  Are you ready for a Midrange driver with solid fade?  This is the one, take Steve's word for it!  Be sure to get your hands on some of these Commemorative Edition models, there are only 2100 of them.  Also available in a Limited Edition Quantum GLOW option.

USDGC Champion Steve Brinster Joins Millennium Golf Discs


2-6-14

USDGC Champion Steve Brinster Joins Millennium Golf Discs

 

We are excited to announce that current USDGC Champion, Steve Brinster, is rejoining the Millennium family.  Steve threw for Millennium earlier in his career and grew accustomed to our molds and plastics.  So much that many of our discs are still in his bag and are an integral part of his consistent championship-caliber performance.  Today, he joins our team again with a relationship that works alongside his primary sponsorship with Innova. 

We plan to work with Steve on product development and testing, along with other marketing efforts.  But perhaps the most exciting work with him has already begun.  We have recently started collaborating with Steve to produce a special edition Quantum Sentinel to commemorate his 2013 USDGC win.  While the Q-Sentinel is not a widely popular disc in the Millennium line, it’s perhaps Steve’s most reliable go-to midrange in his bag, and we hope that this special edition run will help bring more visibility to this trustworthy Midrange Fade disc.   Beyond that we feel that Steve brings instant credibility to the quality of our discs and our brand. 

While we are extremely impressed with Steve’s win at the USDGC, our desire to bring him back to Millennium far exceeds his performance in competition.  Steve is truly one of the sport’s elite ambassadors.  He has done more for the sport than almost any touring professional.  He has installed a dozen courses throughout the NY/NJ area.  Three of which have been used as National Tour locations, including his home course, Warwick.  Years ago he also started one of the strongest clubs in the Northeast, the Skyland Flying Disc Club.  He acted as the chairman for 10+ years and currently still serves on the Board of Directors.    

Though at the very bottom of it all, Steve’s character is what speaks the loudest to us.  He’s professional, influential, a caring father and husband, and a positive role model any disc golfer can look up to.  He aligns with our personal convictions, has tremendous knowledge and respect for our company, and he has a love for disc golf with a proven dedication to its growth.  We couldn’t be more proud to have him represent our brand and this sport.  We are looking forward to big things this season, and beyond.

Sirius Aries Set to Release


January 2014

Sirius Aries Set to Release

The PDGA has approved Millennium's newest model, the Aries!  The new disc is set to begin distribution in late January 2014.  More details are to come with specifics on the Aries, but here is a brief overview of what to expect:

"The Aries is truly a versatile, shot-shaping disc all skill levels can use.  This moderate-high speed (11) driver is built to sustain a long left-to-right flight (RHBH) with a high speed throw, and is also a very reliable backhand roller.  With lower-speed throws, the Aries provides long glide with a slight fade on the finish, which provides longer distances for lower arm speeds.  The Aries will be available in late January in Sirius plastic (weights 160-175)."

Millennium and Hyzer Bomb to join forces with event tour and bag manufacturing.


3/20/13

Millennium and Hyzer Bomb to join forces with event tour and bag manufacturing.

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.
