At our design firm,Salient Technologies, we have designed hundreds of products for other companies and inventors; products from space valves to sporting goods, kitchen gadgets to medical products. Many of our designs have been awarded product of the year in their industry. We are excited to introduce a product of our own… it’s a new spin on disc golf… we call it The Folf Club. (discs not included)

The Folf Club is the ultimate disc golf launcher. It takes advantage of an extended throwing arm allowing the user to throw over 2 times further with the same amount of effort. Engineered from a high strength recyclable polymer, the Folf Club can easily help you throw greater distances. Designed with an ergonomic grip and a consistent release system, the Folf Club allows for maximum flight.

The Folf Club works with the majority of standard disc golf discs. (note: discs are not included) It works for both right and left handed players, men and women, young and old. To use, simply roll the disc into the slot… take aim… swing… and watch it soar. There are over 4000 established disc golf courses, most which are free to the community. Without changing the sport of disc golf, the Folf Club is for those who simply want to mix it up a bit, throw like the pros, and have just a little more fun.

We are ready to launch this product with your help! We have rigorously tested proof-of-concepts and rapid prototype samples (Rapid Prototypes pictured above). We have completed industrial design, trademarks, and started tooling a proven design. With your help, we can cover final tooling and start manufacturing. With our experience, we can ensure high quality products delivered in a reasonable time frame. The Folf Club will be injection molded out of a recyclable polymer in one of our strategic partner’s state-of-the-art facilities right here in the United States.

Testing the original proof of concept prototypes and early samples of the Folf Club here in Bozeman Montana, we have discovered how a simple swing can yield amazing distance. This helps those of us that just can’t throw very far, have the tendency to overthrow, and those of us who simply want to throw ridiculously far.

We knew that the Folf Club would be a great tool to help keep dogs entertained too. We have been asked many times if this will work with a dog... the answer is yes. This ultimate disc launcher can provide hours of exercise and fun. So if your dog loves to chase discs, this is for you... and your dog. Alt Text
