View Full Version : which disc
06-04-2011, 11:20 AM
So a general question for the experienced players. I am trying to decide which disc is best to have my 13 year old daughter throw. SHe enjoys playing. Should she throw a driver mid or putter? We will be at IQ this afternoon.

A Mid I would say since it's the best of both worlds. I would say a Roc but then again that is my favorite disc.

Lightweight midrange - anything not that overstable - fly straighter with less fight
One disc is the best choice for first learning to play - just my opinion

A wolf will keep a relatively straight line and floats in the air well. A mako is the straightest I've found (and therefore also easy to learn to putt with,) but it may not have the time aloft without some force behind it that the wolf does.

thank you all
Its best to start with a neutral mid and the above is my pick. I learned the game on a Shark and its the first disc I bought my daughter when she wanted to start playing. Another good choice is the Comet, it teaches one to be smooth and clean.

Comet is the first and only disccraft I throw
Buzz, meteor, glide all good starters as well
If she can control the disc well already - add the putter - will be a good compliment to the upshot game - then when she just wants that extra d add the driver

While I can't use what Michael throws as an example, I can use what Caleb throws. Some of you haven't met him yet but he will be 9 years old this month. His bag has has the following:
150 Star Teebird - main backhand driver
150 Star Sidewinder - Sidearm
138 DX Skeeter - Midrange and upshots
174 Soft Wizard - putts
Last time we were at IQ and kept score he shot an 83 with this selection.
