"I'd say the discs he offered you are great starter discs and would be great to get some for yourself. The leopard is a great first driver. The shark is a really good midrange for a begginer as well- and you cant go wrong with an…"

""Play it again sports" typically has a bunch of used discs for cheap depending on your location. It is a good way to try a lot of different discs without spending a lot of money. I have bought some discs as cheap as $2.00. Remember…"

"Yeah pretty much what was already said, my first really good starter disc was a lighter DX sidewinder. I suggest sticking in the 150-165g disc until you really get the hang of it. On innova disc stick to things that are below 10 on the…"

"at 1st, throw the slowest disc you can until you get the form down. dont worry about distance just yet. youtube is a wealth of information for learning the form that fits you. above all else, enjoy the game."

Went out with a friend last week and played for the first time. Needless to say, I'M HOOKED. I'd like to get some advice on what discs I should probably go purchase in order to get started. My buddy told me to go get a basic "starter set" to begin with but if would like to know of a better beginning setup.
