Oh no worries! For me the Striker is a tweener disc. It's longer than my fairway discs, but shorter than my primary drivers. But it's one of the best control drivers/fairway drivers I've ever had. The problem is when to use it. It's almost become a specialty disc.
Some stable to understable putters that I can think of are the : Aviar (not the BB), Magnet, APX, Voodoo, ratller (For you Mr. Ellis!), but it's what feels good in your hand. For me the APX swirl. Is thinner than the Aviar and is more tacky, but still rigid.
In my opinon, the best way to start is to throw light. The stigma that throwing heavy weights is the way to go is BS. Also, throw the bottom line plastic. This way you don't break your bank if you find a disc isn't right for you, and you can see how a mould will break in at a faster rate. As far as a line-up goes, All 150 Class. This is only my opinon, but I think that basically all moulds perform the same no matter what the weight. The only difference is your form andthe amount of power you produce. If you learn throwing slow and smooth, you can move up in weight if you choose to do so. Understable and light to start.then when you have good form and understand the importance of snap, move on To more stable and heavier( if you think you need to go heavier). Waaay too much info. To answer your question...all 150 Class...Discraft Magnet or Aviar P&A as your putter. Innova Roc or impulse (Why discraft hasn't produced a 150 Buzzz, I will never understand....Mr. Ellis?). Leopard or Cyclone. And A Teebird. That's all you need.
Driver - DX Tee Bird
Fairway Driver - DX Leopard
Midrange - DX Roc
Putter - Soft Magnet
I would suggest everything in the low to Mid 160's except the putter 170 + . Once the discs are being thrown flat and start to turn to the right for a RHBH then move up in weight and then evetually get your Tee Bird and Leopard in Champion Plastic.
