The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

hello all, im new to the boards, and more or less to the sport as well, and im looking for some advice on what kind/models of discs would be a good starting point for a beginner like me. I have done some checking on ebay, and most of the discs up for bid are extremely cheap compared to the in store prices around my neck of the woods. Im also interested in the travel baskets, seeing how the only course on the island is a stiff 45 min drive, so being able to set up shop at a nearby park would be ideal! Does anyone have any experience buying online? Any info or recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Starting out I would get yourself an understable driver a good midrange and a putter. Some examples are

Teebird(You'll like this once you get some experience IE ten rounds or so)

Roc(Try this only after you've played no less than ten rounds)

-Putters-(some of my favorites)
JK Pro Avair
Pro Rhyno

Online is a great way to get some cheap plastic. Check out Dynamic Discs on Ebay. They ship unlimited discs for five bucks and if you email the guy before you buy he'll give you discounts. Also check out some X-out or factory second discs its a great way to get top of the line plastic for like ten bucks. Hope this helps. Any other questions just message me.
Discaroo.com buy sell and trade discs on there. Just make sure you check feedback for the person you are dealing with.
Discgolfcenter.com,free shipping, choose your weight.
you might want to get 2 baskets so you can play back and forth. have your friends get 1 too and you can make up a course.
use a midrange for awhile. either a Buzzz or a Roc. once u develope the proper form then u can move up to a driver.

work through different rocs at different stages and learn how different ones fly different ways for different senarios, they are a good disc to practice a power grip release and the plastic is cheap and best for the mold.
I just started throwing the Latitude 64 Opto Core, and i absolutely LOVE this disc. it holds any line you put it on and is very easy to throw! And the opto plastic is super durable. And of course the Buzzz is always a good choice
wow guys, thanks for all the replies! im taking notes!
So many discs, so little time.
Some good beginer drivers to think about would be... Valkyrie, Sidewinder, Monarch, Orc ( might be to overstable, but you might need something to fight head winds) Beast, XL or XS ( the last two are Discraft) The Millinium LF or LS.

Fairway drivers..Teebird, Eagle, Leopard

Midrange... Buzzz, Roc(maybe? I found it took me a year or two to understand and appriciate this disc) Gator or Drone ( very overstable, but I feel, new to the game or not. You need some overstable discs.

Putters... JK Pro Avair, APX, Omega, Wizard, Warlock and the Voodoo,

I say buy the good plastic ( Z or Champion) If you are hooked. Why buy the cheap stuff and then buy up to the good stuff? but thats just my opinion.
Ebay is great to get your discs. Just type in "disc golf" then scroll down, and in the left bottom corner, It will say "show all matching store" and then bingo you are in disc heaven.
Before you do anything get the Ken Klimo dave feldberg dvd and watch it. It will give you a better grasp of the game. I would look into starting out with putters as suggested by the Champs above.
Stop by the nearest course to where you live. Talk to some of the people on the course playing and ask if they have an organization at the course that runs events and or sells plastic. Seek out the leadership and ask for advise from them on everything from disc selection to proper technique. They know it benefits them to help you because you'll come back if you're like the rest of us.
Oh, and have fun!
