The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I just started playing a month or two ago and have fallen in love with the sport, playing 5-10 a week. The stores around here only sell Innova discs and even though I love them I want to see what else is out there. Here is what I currently use:



162 Champion Monarch - I really love this one, I can bomb it easily

167 Star Valkyrie - Still having issues with overstability, but I can throw decently



180 DX Roc - Love this as well, very dependable for all shots

167 Champion Spyder - Usually use when I need to park up next to the basket w/out risk of much movement



175 Champion Rhyno - My baby, I will not use another putter!!


I seem to have better luck with 160-165g discs, probably haven't developed enough power yet for heavier discs. From my results with the monarch, understable is probably the route I want to go. Any suggestions would be wonderful, I am not familiar with the plastic type of other manufacturers but I can figure that out easily enough. Thanks in advance =)

Try the Latitude 64 River. Faster, glidier Leopard. It's getting great reviews.
I recommend a Stratus to anyone that doesn't have on in their bag.
sounds like you have similar experience with the aviar, then i tried the birdie and ryhno which were better, but fell in love with the Soft Banger GT.

you have great discs, fyi, you'll have plenty of success with em.

Flx Surge SS
Latitude 64 Vision- gold or opto
Soft Banger GT
Flx Buzzz

For the fun of it: My personal Fav is the predator, which you may think is too overstable for you now, but if you fight winds like i do in texas, its a must have. Also great for experimenting with Sidearm, Tomahawks, Thumbers and Scoobies. Very Versatile disc, will never ever ever ever ever leave my Bag.

Try these Gateway Disc Sports discs...

Drivers: Assassin or Sabre

Mid: Element

Putter: Magic
Try a Classic Inferno by Quest AT. Good disc.

Innova TeeBird and Sidewinder should make their way into your bag (Star Plastic) along with a Banshee (Champion) for shape shots. Sorry but these Innova discs are great discs.
I would say to pick up some new Latitude in the opto line plastic. Best grip on the market and no one comes close to it...I would pick up a river and get a core....You should be able to launch the river and the core should add a nice touch to your game. Unless you have an understable roc that turns over...then I would say to get something like a Discraft Wasp...Overstable midrange just got an ace with one today.
I use an avenger ss for all of my turnover shots, esp plastic the esp plastic is grippy, and very durable.
Try a Sidewinder and Stratus...max weight or close will work best for a newer player...I love the Super Soft Omega for putting....
Stratus,Comet,Eclipse,Hawk. Innova Skeeter.
Main thing is to stick with the weights in plastic you are used to. OK to experiment in heavier weights once your skills develop. Your still new , give it some time.
I agree that you do not need to buy every disc out there... unless you want to. the more you play the more disc's you need.... then it changes back to the more you play the less disc's you need. Learn the disc's you have, I try to only bring the disc's I use on that DGC... some of the more open DGC's do not call for more then just a few disc's. I have two bags... small bag and a big bag.

But if you are looking to buy new disc's I would look at Gateway, or even Quest at. They both have some kinda cool disc's
