My son is turning 5 in a couple weeks and I am contemplating getting him started on a bag for his birthday.

Does anyone have suggestions on ultralight (120 g or so) discs that would be good for him?

Thanks for the Help!

Children have difficulty with creating RPM's on the disc. Most kids can benifit from large diameter discs with tons of glide.
Check out www.Discgolfcenter.com They have a nice Pro D Hawk 163 g Blue, and a 148g Pro D Cyclone.
I would say stick with base line plastics, they are easier to throw.
If you do some online research you might be able to find a 130 esp Buzz I know I saw them before they were some sort of fundraiser disc, and they were in ESP going for like $5 or so.
I have also seen some 100g and 150g magnets on eBay. You just have to keep and eye out for them
But I think a Cyclone, Hawk, Magnet combo might be just perfect for a young kid.

Nate Doss Said "My dad gave me a Pro D Hawk to start throwing when he was 8 and he has had one in his bag ever since"
Ron Russel said "He world Championship to a Cyclone."
And Scott Stokley Says, " The Magnet, The best putter ever made, It's what he uses, its what everyone uses."
If he starts out with those three discs maybe he will be a World Champ one Day.
good Luck. I hope he really enjoys the sport.

Oh wait just found the website with the lightweight buzzes. 125g Buzzes for only $5.95 www.GottaGoGottaThrow.com
I came across a 3 disc set at Fred Meyers, sure it wasn't Innova, nor Discraft, but it had the basic 3 discs, a driver, mid and putter, but they seemed from what I could tell, a bit smaller, for smaller hands, they were packaged so I couldn't actually get the feel of them, but this is something I'd recommend, it was $12 for the set.
What is 'Fred Meyers'?
Teebird DX, R-Pro Boss 150class, 150class Avair, 150class banshee
