I always thought that the first Chinese discs I saw would be counterfeit Innova at Walmart...on the contrary it looks like these guys are pretty passionate about the sport over there. I like the designs and names and the plastics look interesting.

They're not on the approved discs list yet at least. It's been over a month since it was updated.

Nice to see a new disc manufacturer come to chat with us! Is the disc golf scene building up in China as well?

You've got nice and easy to read website for the new discs. Some parts of the texts might require some fixing but that is to be expected from a website that is translated to english.
The "In addition, it is able to get through and obstacles like trees." in the description of Jun does sound quite bold statement by the way (also one of those parts that needs some fixing). :)

Hi Varsi, thank you for pointing out the mistake.

In China, disc golf is not as popular as Ultimate, most of the disc golfers in China are from foreign countries.

Among the Yikun Team, most of us have been playing Ultimate for over ten years, and start to play disc golf about four years ago. We love this great sport and eager to provide quality and innovative discs for this community as we did in the Ultimate area.

Thanks for coming on here and talking with us. Any chance you can tell me which cities in China have disc golf courses? If there's a list online, that would be a great resource. I have friends who sometimes travel there for work, and I may be doing the same in the near future.
