Has anyone of you tried the kids' version of the Crosslap Lucky? It's 120g. I think about getting one for a 5-year old. Currently he's having most fun with an advertisment giveaway frisbee, which is below 100g. Well, he's not really disc golfing yet, just having fun.

Pearl and Ruby.
Stick to putters and mids, understable to stable. If the kids want big rim distance drivers - Simon Lizotte is the answer (there should be a video where he states that he only had a putter (and maybe mid) as a kid.

Lightweight starter kit would be an idea. Innova and Lat64 have kid-friendly discs (Innova had their EDGE program; not sure if they still have it). Do some googling and I'm sure you'll find some info...

Most Lightning discs are available in very light weights, and they're only $2.99 at GottaGoGottaThrow. All are pretty slow except for the MX-1. I got some for my kids, and they work great. The Lightning Upshot (not the #2 Upshot, just the plain ol' Upshot) would make a great kid's putter, too. They're very floaty and easy to throw, and I bag one for approaches. See http://www.gottagogottathrow.com/dis...anufacturer=67

Thanks for all the input and help!!!

I let him pick a putter and a midrange, as well as the color, and he chose: Innova Stingray 150g in hot pink and the Discraft Magnet Soft 149g in Black...to go along with his Innova Sidewinder 152g in orange.

Now it's all about going out and having fun! So glad that he has found a sport that he's excited about...I've been waiting 4 years for this to happen!!!

Diamond, Innova Mirage for mid (light), Deputy for putter. Those are my wife's main three discs and she gets good flight out of all of them.

my very first disc was a 150 champ sidewinder, best disc ever for new/intermediate players.
i'd say diamond light for a 10 yr old.

The only reason I let my son throw my Sidewinder is because it was the lightest disc I had a 152g. Probably not the best type of disc for him to start his disc golf career but it's all I had in my bag lighter than 163g.

I told him I'd let him pick out a putter he liked (model and color) and I'd order it for him. I figured if he got to pick it out then he would be more excited about going to the course and using it. I was trying to narrow the weights down before I gave him free rein on on the colors

I was thinking maybe a light putter and a light midrange would be all he would need right now (and he can continue to carry my Sidewinder if he likes).

Thanks for all the input so far.
