P-38 Golf Disc with Fighter Aircraft Names (1984, Lightning)

Step into the world of Lightning’s golf discs and discover a chapter in disc golf history that began with the P-38. This disc pushed the boundaries of its time, boasting an impressively low profile and an incredibly fast flight. In 1987, it even set a new length record at 186.83 meters – an improvement of almost 20 meters compared to the previous record!
