my wife and I bought about four of them so several of us could play, only have one of them is left now and I still carry it and use it to get out of tough spots, I have made several long/weird putts with it in tournaments (including ~150ft shot from my knees around a tree at States this year), and to attempt rollers once in a while
I started out throwing with a #1 Driver and a Gazelle i Had given to me. Then I got a softie 86 mold and threw in my first 100 footer. That was it I was hooked. I will admit that the first disc i ever bought was a Discraft Typhoon. What can I say I was 11 years old and didn't know any better. I aced with it and then later cracked it. It's on my wall after being "retired" at 8:59 PM on 8/6/97 (I was 12 years old and wrote this all on the back).
Friends advised me on a DX TeeRex as my very first disc. Didn't take many rounds to figure out that wasn't a great first disc. Thankfully that is one of two discs I have ever lost (the other being my 2nd disc, a champion classic roc ....oh how I miss that thing).
I had a pair of of Discraft's Phantom +s. One was black and the other a light blue. The underside was so clean that to this day I still wonder if they were machined out of a solid piece of plastic. Come to think of it, I may have even have had an original Phantom, but in those days my mind was often blurry. I think I had a Sky Streak or a Sky Star too.
The first disc I "golfed" with was a Wham-O 165g World Class Frisbee. This was 1988. My neighbor Jeff and I would play at night on the campus of CMU (Central Mich U). This was just before I started playing Ultimate, so then my preferred golf disc became a Discraft 175g Ultrastar. Oh how things have changed... ;-)
