I was just wondering what disc is the best to learn how to throw first? I'm a LHBH player and have been having trouble getting any distance at all out of my drives. It's not very consistent at all either. Just wondering if there are any suggestions?
I've been playing for only a couple of months, but I love the Valkyrie by Innova. I throw the Star, Champion, and Pro versions of the Valkyrie. It has taken a little time to get used to, but they fly straight with a little hyzer at the end. I throw RHBH and sidearm.
it's a fairway driver but the lepoard is great in light weights for beginners as for getting distance focus on your short game the distance comes the more you play and pratice and the disc the others have said are all also great first disc
but if the disc is going hard right get a light weight
When I first started I was very decent with Champion plastic. I would suggest an Eagle and a Valkyrie. As for weight... I always threw heavier weights... but if you have issue with distance, then a lighter disc would be good because it will carry the disc a lil farther.
well, in general the easiest discs to throw are the Innova Aero for approaches and the Discraft Impact for Midrange/Fairway Drives. For Drivers I Started out with the Road runner and always felt comfortable with that, Now since My arm has gotten better I have then switched to the Beast, then Wraith, and now TeeRex. One disc that always felt good to me from when I started playing up until now is the Discraft XL. I would say check out the XL for a longer range Driver and an Impact (Everyone should own an Impact) for shorter ones.
If you are new to the sport I think you'd be best served by starting with a good versatile utility disc and playing the majority of shots with one or maybe two discs for a while until you gain good control and can shape your shots and manipulate your release angle.
I would encourage you to get a Quest Rock-it. It is a midrange disc that is very easy to control, very versatile and has pretty good carry (distance) for a mid. Play all your shots with this one disc for about 10-15 rounds before adding any other discs to your arsenal. The traps most newbies fall into are playing with too many discs or playing with discs that are too fast (less forgiving) or too stable for their current ability.
more important than which disc you throw......learn the x-step......most important part of the backhand throw!!!!!!!!!!!! disc golf tv used to have a great video of it online. proper footwork are the key to distance as well as accuracy. then practice, practice, practice so that it is a natural part of your game.....good luck
The Polaris LS is my favorite. Try the 160 weights I Love the 150 class lighter goes further in theory and easier to throw The DX Cobra is my next favorite. This disc will fly straight and far and beats up nice! check them out on my web site www.clearwaterdiscgolfstore.com
