How beneficial is it for a beginner to work an overstable driver in to the mix at that stage, especially if the arm strength/speed may not be up to the disc's specs?

I'm also curious about your thought behind having two drivers in the bag at that stage, when there's plenty of discussion out there about having a more minimal disc selection to start with and "building up" to slightly overstable drivers, then building up to the discs where the flight path drawing looks like a U turn.
This 'bag', obviously, is a different approach, and I'm just wondering why you recommend this approach as compared to others.
the overstable driver shouldnt be over like speed 7/8. so if you have even actually been playing for a yr total then you should be able to handle that. it is important to develop the overstable driver manipulation skills early on. the main reasons are wind control, spike hyzers, and FH. those 3 shots/skills are vital to anyones game.
now personally i dont suggest a firebird or predator to start. their a bit 'much' right off the bat. something more like a Banshee, or a MRV (Discontinued).
i personally feel bad for beginners today. with all the drivers out there its made it so much more difficult to 'accidentally' pick the right discs.
