This Custom Sky-Styler from Discraft Products is from a special Gail McColl collection provided by Discraft to the Freestyle Flying Disc Players Association. Discraft offered us the opportunity to list and sell perhaps the largest collection of Sky-Stylers ever. These discs are in excellent condition and offer and beautiful piece of art or an awesome unique jam disc. Many of these discs are from the 80's and are the earliest custom prints and stock models that Discraft offered. Some of the plastic colors have not been available for years. So this is a nice chance to get some of these visually stunning discs out into routines and demonstrations for an enhanced presentation. This is also a chance to see and own some of the history of early freestyle and overall events.
This is an early 80's Sky-Styler. This disc is very unique. We are calling these "transition" discs as they have the original stamp used on the "1st Style". It says "SportDisc" on both sides of the stamp. Soon after this the stamp changes to say "Sprtdisc" on one side and "160-gram" on the other side of the ring. This would be the standard for some time to come. So we are assuming this stamp remained from the very original molding of the Sky-Styler with the wide troff on top (1st style). These were stamped soon after the mold had changed to just the "thin ring" on top but still using the original stamp. A very early Sky-Styler.
The Discraft Sky-Styler is by far the most popular freestyle disc in the world. The Sky-Styler flies straight and stable, and has an extra deep rim for easy rim delays and smooth body rolls. Comes in a variety of great colors. Exact weights of the discs vary from time to time but this is the disc used by world champions for the past 40 plus years.
