Default Baseline plastic or less weight for easier throwing?

Hoi,

I'm a beginner and have a 175g Champion Teebird. It is too overstable for me currently, only with my best shots I manage a straight flight out of it. I'm steadily improving with my technique, thus I am sure I'll be able to throw that disc as I like to somewhen later. Until then, I would like to have the same disc but easier to throw.

What should I go for?
1) 175g DX Teebird
2) 170g Champion Teebird (or even lighter)
3) Star Teebird?

Recommendations are appreciated.

try 165-170 in any plastic. the 175g dx will still feel like a brick if you can't get it up to speed

I've had great success keeping my drivers in the 167-171g range.

I had a similar experience with a Champ Teebird. I tried a 168 Star Teebird, a 171 DX Teebird, and a 171 Champ TL. All went straighter than the Champ Teebird. Got more distance with the DX and Star.

I would suggest trying a Leopard if you haven't yet.

My best discovery when starting out was the 150 g class discs. Going with DX is your best bet since you can try out more molds for less money. The Leopard is a great choice.

agree with the leopard recomendations: also- the lightest TL you can find, could work- Save the trusty Tbirds for later when your form/snap improves IMHO
