I got my g/f a 127g Quest Inferno. Thing still flies beefy for her, but her form isn't very good and Infernos are pretty overstable. I could see something more stable to understable working.

She is doing so much right. I broke it down from reach back, pull, hit, follow through.

MSt has DX Rocs as low as 109g. Might have to add one to my next order for her.
got to watch getting too low because then she will just turn it right over...i think 120ish would be good for a 8 yr old...i tried a bunch of weights with my oldest and it seems about 130 is as low as he can go ...otherwise he is throwing everything way right

Yeah, I thought of that with a light DX Roc. Too big and bulky maybe.

Biggest thing with her (like anyone) is hand comfort. The Pearl is nice because it's shallow and thin-rimmed and that lets her get her fingers around it confidently.

Better form than 90% of our league members. Looks to be falling backwards towards her release. Pretty open stance.

Frankly, the more I think about it (and being a dad of 2 kids - 12 and 15) I would do little to improve her form at this time unless she asks for advice. She's 8 and I would focus on making disc golf fun and encouraging. Get her treats of some sort (or other award) for doing well or making a good shot. She is WAY ahead of the curve in form and release at this age so now you just need her little 8 year old bod to catch up with muscle and coordination.

A word of warning though, kids often loose interest in things like this as they get older. Don't be disappointed when or if that happens. Just sorta the way it is with kids. It would be great if they always shared the same interests mom and dad but it doesn't always work out that way.

Great advice for anyone with kids right there.

For now, she wants to throw, so that's what we do. Her 5 year old little brother isn't interested right now, so when he tags along I let him go catch lizards while we throw, not going to push him to do something he doesn't care about right now.
