Discs for Beginners

DiscGolf4Women Facebook Question: “What would you recommend as a bag of starter discs for a lady who is a non-athlete with little upper body strength or conditioning?”

The Ladies of DiscGolf4Women Facebook Group Respond:

G.R. – “Shark – great beginner disc.”

A.S. – “My favorite was the Roc when I was learning, but later I found the Cobra, which was similar, but easier for me to grip, because the lip was a little shallower. I experimented with 160 class, but 180 acted about the same for me, and handled better if there was wind. I have a couple Sharks I tried, and they are nice, too. Personally, I kept finding myself trusting the Roc (and now Cobra) more.

G.B. – “150 DX leopard”

G.B. – “Stingray or Buzzz”
