“Steady” Ed Collection: Midnight Flyers Gallery:

Midnight Flyer were some of the first disc golf discs molded. Manufactured in the early 1980’s. Ed while at Wham-O first used glow plastic in the original molds and found it was not only cool to have a disc that glowed but that the glow plastic added weight. These discs come in weights starting at 120 grams and go all the weigh up to 220 grams.
The hot stamped number were used to distinguish the discs and were intended for tournament play. These disc were jointly manufactured be Disc Golf Association and Wham-O while Ed was first developing Disc Golf.
