Default Good disc for my friend...

My friend and I are starting to really get into disc golf. He is kind of broke though but I'm trying to find him a driver he'll really like. He isn't a total newb but he's not the greatest player either...He pretty much ONLY throws sidearms right now. And a disc that would get him some easy distance would be good. Suggestions? Thanks.

Orc or Starfire in my opinion. If he's got the power to give, then possibly the Destroyer. Destroyers aren't very newer-player friendly though. Definately can handle the sidearm though.

For fh players, you're basically looking for a driver with some stability for the first part of the flight and a reliable fade. The good news is that this is the majority of drivers....
Tracker, teebird, avengers, orcs, beasts, olfs....

What I'd suggest is to post in the marketplace saying looking for really cheap loner discs.

Firebird in champ plastic. Then when it's windy, he can throw some sick backhand shots that won't turn over.

Hard to go wrong with a Teebird, should be easy to find used (and hopefully cheap). Unless he's always going too far right than the Avenger or Vlakyrie might be a good choice. Heck, even a Leopard, it has a nice rim for flicking.
