Complimentary Minis?

Alright, this is a last minute question. I'm heading to Hershey Park tomorrow with my daughter while my wife is at a seminar. We've been throwing our minis around the property the last few days in preparation for playing a mini course or two in the Lancaster area.

I've been throwing my Innova Mini-Driver primarily and seems to be a meat-hook of a disc for someone new to throwing minis. I also tried my "Gotta Go/Gotta Throw" mini that came free with an order. It's pretty overstable, too, but is lighter and doesn't go as far.

My daughter also has a Nano that we got her when we were in Orlando and checked out DiscGolfCenter in person. I threw it a couple times, too, and it seemed much more stable, and maybe even a little understable. It seemed like the two would cover a wide range of mini golf shots.

Does anyone have any suggestions about other minis that I might consider? There are a couple places to buy them in Lancaster and I might just get one or two more for fun. I'm thinking about getting myself a Nano if I can find one.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I have a Prodiscus mini that is as hard as a dinner plate. I throw it on a 45 degree anny and it will still flex out.

My favorite thrower is a Axiom though. It is less stable than a nano and a lot easier to throw.

Gateway makes a mini that is a little deep, but flies great.

They just changed their mold. Flies a little straighter. Nice to carry one that's beefy and one that's a tick less stable. They're the FB & FL of the mini realm.

The zing container mini's fly great. Particularly the outside one with the fatter rim. And then the smaller one can be used for putting!

No, I actually meant that I wanted two minis that would treat each other really nicely. For example, one disc says to the other "That was a beautiful turnover shot that you just flew." And the other replies with "And what a wonderful shade of yellow you are."

And in all seriousness... I hate it when that happens!

I hate when some sick points out my simple grammatical mistakes when I'm typing out a post about disc golf on my phone's tiny keyboard too.
