Default Building a bag for my brother (newbie)

My brother is just starting to get into disc golf. Played one round. I bought him some used discs at PIAS. All courses he is going to play are wooded pretty much. here is the discs:

KC Pro Aviar 171g
DX Glow Roc 180g
Elite X Comet 173g

I figured I would wait till he had some experience before giving him a fairway driver. But I have a beat to hell Cyclone he might get.

Thoughts?

personally i started out with a fairway driver before moving to a distance driver because they were just too much disc and too much speed for me. if you go that way id recommend a Leopard to him. its a great disc for people of all levels but a good DX Leopard will help him learn form and still give good distance. also i am a fan of Rocs so i think the Glo is a great choice and you cant go wrong with the aviar

I think that's more or less perfect. Getting multiple kinds of mids in his hand early will teach him about line shaping and different flight patterns, and those are discs that he'll be able to get a proper flight out of more or less from the beginning. He has access to your bag if/when he wants to try something faster.
