I don't know if I agree with the colors

Gratz on getting your girl to play too bad about the stiches, but then again chicks dig scars

I'd forgo the Stingray and get her a putter instead, something in the 165-170 range, as I don't see much need for 150 class putters. Other than that cool.

already purchased a putter. I have some spare ones that I don't use that would be good for her. I already purchased the items anyway.

I agree, stay away from all the 150 discs unless you live somewhere where there is no wind at all. If you are worried that weight is to much for her go for higher 167's and higher. It will be easier to get used to heavier discs with time, but not if she starts at 150. That might be alot to overcome easily.

I for one think the stingray is a good choice, depending on how strong she is. If she is not that strong, it's a disc many new people can throw fairly straight.

I also agree with getting her a putter and I would make sure it is 174/175 weight. Heavy putters just work better for most people; even for my 11 year old does well with them.

My old lady has a Champ 150 Teebird tht goes further then anything she has...so I stongly disagree with 150class. Just get something Champion. I have a Champion Roc that I have in my bag and have let her throw that before and same thing! What Im saying is 150 Champion plastic is sweet even in the wind, Dont knock it till you try it. Putters, yes stay heavy.

I think you made some great choices on the disc for her. Having them all 150 class isn't really needed. The Stingray at about 164-169 would be fine (a putter in those weights would be great as well). The other choices are perfect. The reason I say the Sting can be heavier, some of the light 1s get flippy
