Actually just throw your dx aviar for a mid, that will help tons later, and your arm probably cant handle most mids anyway

Mako/Mako3 is what I'd recommend. Its stable so its good for teaching beginners line shaping. It will most likely remain in their bag long after they lose their "beginner status" & while they keep improving. Comes in durable plastic so it won't change on them so they have time to learn the disc in its entirety.

I think the Mako the Roc etc will frustrate as they go where they are thrown which is tough on a beginner lol it was for me

Thats right give beginners discs that don't go where there thrown?! FYI the Roc & Mako aren't compareable at all. The Mako is pretty much point & shoot but the Roc is more overstable. I love my Rocs but for beginners a Roc would be a bad choice (unless beat in) because it would mask form flaws & teach them to flex discs to gain distance. I agree the Skeeter is a decent begginer mid mold though.

Im throwing my vote in for a 165-169g Champ Mako3. Nice glide, and they go straight at low AND high power, giving you a mold with which you can learn to throw flat, and keep in your bag long term.

59 and counting. That's how many people saw fit to chime in on this question with their 2 AFTER the best disc golfer in the world (by a WIDE margin) weighed in.

That is some funny ish.

I think mcbeast's advice should be taken with a grain of salt. He doesn't know the OP's physically qualities, abilities or time to devote to learn.

He's a natural athlete and started young.

I wouldn't give a noob a roc3 unless it was in mcpro. A dx roc sure! My 170 roc3 flys exactly like my max weight ones though. Slightly OS. I throw 400 ft which isn't super far but honestly playing for getting close to 3 yrs I've only met a few people that out drive me and all but one is a pro. And he only throws like 15 ft more then me in a field on a great pull.

Most people I say average 330 and at that distance a roc3 is like a one trick pony.

But my advice is usually. Aviar, roc, stingray, leopard. All in dx at first. Pick up a new dx as they break in. Then pick up a star.

Must be getting slow around here. I'm pretty sure after almost 2 years the OP has figured something out by now.

My first one was a Cobra and I loved it. But being it was DX it got to flippy fast. the Mako and Mako3 are both good disks but I would go Mako first being it is lower speed so easier to learn for a newer player I think
