I first heard of Neptune Discs about almost two years ago while watching the Las Vegas Challenge. There was a player, a FPO player Natalie Ryan who I had never heard of before that was dominating the women’s field. And she was sponsored by a company “Neptune Discs” of which I also had never heard of. I quickly learned of the controversy, and the reason Natalie was instantly so good, but we’re not here to talk about that in this article.
I am VERY familiar with disc golf companies and brands, but how was there a company that sponsored players that I hadn’t even heard of?
I looked them up to find out what kind of disc golf products they sold. Supposedly they were a disc golf manufacturer out of Virginia, but didn’t actually have any discs.
A year later, they STILL didn’t have any discs available to the public. Apparently they were having some manufacturing issues and were not able to release the discs.
Well they do finally have some discs an I have been able to test them out.
Neptune Disc Golf Discs
Neptune Discs boasts a marine-themed lineup, with a tagline suggesting they’re the lone disc golf manufacturer in Virginia. While their claim stakes out local territory, the discs themselves, particularly the “pearly” plastic, bear a striking resemblance to Yikun’s Dragon Line. Something seemed quite “fishy” when I first received my package from Infinite Discs.
The similar embossed disc names, and the similar disc shapes and flight of existing Yikun molds further fuel speculation of Yikun’s involvement.
Regardless of where they are made, Neptune’s offerings—a fairway driver, a midrange, and a putter—each carry a unique charm, with cleverly themed names and quality materials.
Marlin Fairway Driver
The Marlin, Neptune’s beginner-friendly fairway driver, shines in its Pearl plastic—a pearly sheen true to its name. It’s a delight to hyzer flip, offering a flippy yet controlled flight path. Even at lower power, it maintains a dependable hyzer flip trajectory, making it ideal for slicing through tight fairways. Its flight is reminiscent of the Yikun View, suggesting a commonality in design, and it’s a disc I could easily reach for when I need a reliable, understable driver.
Then there’s the Nautilus, a stable midrange that also enjoys the lustrous Pearl plastic. It boasts a mostly flat top and sits comfortably in the hand, versatile for both backhand and forehand throws. Its flight ratings suggest a more neutral path with less fade than you might expect, which I found to be accurate during low, flat throws. It’s a reliable straight flyer, akin to the Yikun Zheng in performance, and it has quickly found a place in my regular rotation.
Lastly, the Splash putter in “Bass” plastic is cleverly named and offers an exceptional grip with sufficient stiffness for a confident throw. Its flat flight plate makes it an excellent choice for driving putts, offering a neutral and straight path. However, for my putting style, I prefer a bit more dome and less grip, although the Splash excels in longer, spin putt scenarios. Its flight ratings are on point, perhaps with a tad more glide than advertised. It’s comparable to the Yikun Gui, sans the grip pads, leading me to believe Neptune may have customized this aspect of their molds. I know a lot of people who love the Gui, and if they are looking for a version without the texture, they’re going to want to check out the Splash.
In closing, while Neptune’s discs bear a resemblance to Yikun’s offerings, they stand on their own with a solid lineup. Whether you’re drawn to Neptune for their thematic flair or simply in search of value, their discs are a commendable option, though direct Yikun models may offer similar performance at a competitive price point.
