What is it about Grooves that draws people to them

Anyways like everyone else has said start with something slow. I suggest getting yourself a DX Leopard and a DX Eagle, then get out there and tear it up

The problem is, the big sporting goods stores are loaded with grooves, bosses, and the similar. Back to the op. The KC pro roc and leopard are great. throw in a putter you like, and a teebird/eagle/or rival, and you've got a pretty good starter set.

I started with XL's. Still a staple in my bag. Comet, Leopard, Teebird, Buzzz all good choices. You may grow out of them quickly, but they will likely always serve a purpose as your game progresses. Welcome to the addiction and board.

It's nearly impossible to grow out of buzz's and tbirds. No matter how long you've played they are awesome discs

I started playing forehand a couple years ago. I recently switched to backhand. To make a long story short I wasted my first couple years in disc golf not learning anything by throwing forehand. I switched to backhand and never looked back. I wish someone three years ago would have told me what I know now.

Yeah it's pretty sad that the Groove is still in Clearwater's top ten most popular discs. As in, there are only seven other molds that sell more often than the Groove.

To answer the OP: Go look at the "build a bag" stickie or whatever it's called. This site is a wealth of information. Just don't give up on a disc if it doesn't work for you immediately (unless it's the Groove). I have about 70 discs that I've collected over the years, and a lot of those see little to no use. I'm currently going through them and seeing which ones work for me at my current skill level. Of the 20 that I've tested so far, 11 or 12 are destined for the MP (and I know I'm taking a loss on all of them). So don't be like me. Buy a Leopard, DX Teebird, Buzzz, and any putter and practice practice practice.
