Hail to the old men

I need some disc recommendations. My father in law wants to start playing DG with me and my Bro-inlaw. I would like to get him a 3 disc set, driver/MR/P&A. What are some good "old man discs"?

Thanks for the help.

I was thinking Beast, BuzzD, Crossfire(as putter/water hole)

Try a Sonic putter if he was on old Frisbee thrower. Archangel is a good multi-purpose disc for beginners.

all 150 class...
Leapord or Dragon (the dragon floats)
Roc- everybody's go to disc...
Polecat- very much like a frisbee

I will look into the sonic, thanks. I was debating on the archangel. I kinda wanted to give it a rip myself.

Is that from experience?

my kids throw 150's. I guess you need less arm speed for the 150's?

I'd go:

Wizard
Roc
Cheetah

but the more general answer I'd give is:

stable, beaded putter
neutral or stable midrange
slow driver with some turn and fade

I'd go for a soft aviar putter, a mid range shark, and an archangel is easy for beginners to throw

I would agree with landon77 for starters, if not an archangel then leopard or something similar, for innovas. I would say Banger GT, Buzz and a hmm... xpress? Nice and straight, for Discraft.

I would use a leopard (something understable since first timers tend to drop their shoulders a lot and you need a disc to counter balance), a roc in dx (beats up quickly and teaches them straight shots), and an aviar bb or wizard because anything else just sucks! These three a very appropriate for beginners.

As an official "old man" let me offer a suggestion based on what I use. My son-in-law got me hooked on DG so I am on the other side of the situation. I started with a Monarch champion, Shark DX and Aviar P&A since I had no idea what to get and this is what was available. I mistakenly got a light putter and heavy driver and mid. I made it work. I have since added a heavy Birdie putter, which I like, and 165 range Cheetah DX, Star Teebird and Star Sidewinder.
