You can start out with something cheap at a store for under 10 bucks. It's possible somebody here would sell you something used for cheaper than that.

If there's a course near you I'll bet that somebody there has some plastic and advice. If you click the course directory tab up at the top of the page you can plug in your zip code and find all the nearby courses.

Between $8 and $20 is about right depending on what kind you want. Frisbee = Disc.

Yeah, 10 bucks is a good way to start. If u have more u could pick up a starter kit, but either way, have fun with it!

Start with about three discs. Get a teebird, buzz and aero. If you get into it, your into it.

Used at play it for 6 usually. Not going to mention quality. I agree with getting at least putter and slow/fairway driver at least to start.

You're probably going to get a lot of feedback about what specific discs to buy, but you could start out with three (putter, mid, slow fairway driver) used, base plastic (DX, Pro-D) discs for $20 (shipped) if you spend enough time on the Marketplace.

Or for $23 (shipped), you can just buy this from Disc Golf Center:

Do this, then build upon what you learn from these discs. Look at flight charts & compare against what you have.

Buy a fairway driver, and putter in DX plastic from Innova. 8 bucks each. A Leopard and Avair should be a good start.

Wolito is on the right track. But I would suggest a DX shark instead of the leopard. It is more versatile. I have started several people on just a shark. It is probably the best all purpose disc around. It is classified as a mid range but is straight enough to putt, drive, or up. It can be used for a roller or a scoobie to get under heavy brush. It turns over easy for an anhyzer. It does very little great, except fly straight, but a lot of things well.
