Kastaplast Göte Review
Grab the slow and steady Göte for your next narrow tunnel shot. This is one of the best straight-flying midranges we have in stock, and it doesn't take much pop out of the hand to get it gliding down the fairway. This Kastaplast Göte review covers one of the more unique discs for sale now.
Kastaplast Göte Plastics
Disc aficionados revere Kastaplast for its comfortable yet durable plastic blends. Every company claims it has the highest-quality plastic, but in the case of Kastaplast, it may be true.
- K1: Combines exceptional durability with a soft and grippy feel. While many premium plastics have a stiff and slick texture, Kastaplast threads the needle to produce an ultra-tough blend that maintains some flex and a comfortable hand feel.
- K1 Glow: A bright and long-lasting glow that will stay lit for several holes of night golf.
Kastaplast Göte Flight Numbers
- Speed: 4
- Glide: 5
- Turn: 0
- Fade: 1
The Göte is one of the easiest discs to throw dead straight on a slow and floaty line. A smooth release will yield a forward penetrating glide before it either lands flat on its belly or with a very gentle hyzer. It doesn't have the high-speed stability to absorb excess torque in the early flight and lacks the low-speed stability to reliably shape curving shots.
This touchy midrange is for straight lines and pure turnovers. The Göte promotes a clean release, making it a great disc for practicing good technique. Because of its slow speed and flat flight, it will get minimal ground play on the landing. The Göte will hold a hyzer, but only at short distances and very low speeds.
- Diameter: 21.9cm
- Height: 2.1cm
- Rim Depth: 1.3cm
- Rim Width: 1.3cm
Kastaplast has a reputation for experimental disc designs, and the Göte is no exception. The very wide deep-dish shape feels like a stretched-out putter. The Göte's high dome gives it supreme glide, but the thin rim doesn't offer much speed or stability The unique hand feel is an acquired taste for many players.
Released in 2018, the Göte was the first true midrange in Kastaplast's lineup. It remains one of their more obscure molds and has yet to gain as much traction as the Kaxe or Svea midranges. This niche disc has a small but passionate fanbase.
Skill Level Recommendations
- Novice: Excellent first disc for brand-new players. Will teach developing players how to throw with a clean release
- Intermediate: Finesse midrange for tight tunnels and heavily wooded fairways. Solid approach disc for low ceiling shots where you need more speed than a putter provides.
- Advanced: Dead straight flyer that serves a nice role in the bag. Sneaky distance potential for finesse throwers who can really spin a disc.
- Pro: Sponsored pro Charlie Goodpasture keeps his signature Göte in the bag.
