Default Taking a first timer to play today

Check out my disc list and give me suggestions on what I should bring for this guy. I'm thinking only one... don't want to confuse or frustrate him.

Thanks for the input.

That's my usual choice for beginners I play with. May want to give him a putter as well, though.

It depends on the first timer. I nearly killed my buddy with a JLS, Impact, and a putter. He kept throwing the JLS as hard as possible and strained his chest, and this is a college age guy that's played soccer, basketball, and baseball.

I'd say start him off real slow with a putter and a mid only, if he looks to be getting the hang of things quickly pull out the Leopard.

Good advice, thanks!

I would probably go with a slow driver (leopard) or mid (Cobra) and some type of putter. I would definitely suggest taking two, something to use off the tee and putter, but if you are going to go with just one I would honestly just use a putter.

Leo or something similar is the way to go.

Noobs cant throw putters for crap especially deep rimmed ones.
