DX Cobra around 2004. I got a really cool, opaque orange Champion Cobra a few months after I started playing. Used them both mostly FH.

Millennium LF (Long Fade) - They probably haven't made those since the 90s.

Add me to the DX Shark crowd. I searched the thread to make sure I hadn't posted before, and we are legion.

DX Viper and DX Aviar because Sports Authority had almost nothing else back in 2006

The first disc I ever threw was a Star Aviar3. Few of the guys I work with convinced me to come out and play "disc golf"

My first thought, keep in mind never hearing of this amazing sport, was "what the **** is a disc golf?".

That was the tail end of April last year. Now I'm beyond hooked, have probably tried more molds than I care to admit (easily 120) and I spank them now. They don't play with me anymore.

1987 Discraft Phantom+... bought at Herman's Sporting Goods in Chicago. It flew much better for disc golf than the Frisbees we had been using. We used it for single-disc rounds for several years. We being my dad, brother, and me.

the first discs I ever threw weren't even mine. A champ monster (for overhands and forehands) and an x buzzz for everything else.

The first discs I bought were a dx valkyrie, a dx shark, and dx aviar pna - which I bought after the first time I ever played.

At least the Aviar is a beginner disc. Viper not so much, but in 2006 Sports Authority could have done worse and got a Wraith or early run Star Destroyer that is way too fast for a beginner on the OS side.

Nobody with experience rescued you from that? O_o
