And maybe instead of a buzzz try a comet. Really easy to get good distance for newbies.

This pretty much says it all. A lot of what would be best is based on the course you're playing and the person you're loaning the discs to. Unless they're very athletic and coordinated, I'd stick with one or two discs. A putter and/or a neutral mid is more than most beginners will be able to learn to handle in the one or two rounds you're playing with them...

This. Don't take them to a long course either. Perfect time for a putter round.

Uh oh, better get a Mako. They can drive, approach, and putt with it. Easier for newer players to learn when you only have to learn one disc's characteristics -- they don't need a bag of discs. High glide with little turn or fade so it's beginner friendly. If they're overpowering the disc, they need to buy their own driver (Leopard). My Dad & Father-In-Law do well with the 168g Mako I hand them a few times a year.

EDIT: Since you have a Shark, just hand them that.
