I highly recommend the Stratus for a mid as its fairly easy to control and keep on a straight line.
Driver wise there have been a lot of great suggestions and aside from them I'd also recommend the Stalker. And Volklgirl hit the nail on the head with regards to putters ... find one that feels the most comfortable in and leaving your hand. If you want a slim putter I really like the Latitude 64 Spike.

I would recommend an Innova leopard. Pretty easy to keep straight & under control.

First eat your wheaties,then go get yourself a couple understable discs and a soft putter and start punishing yourself on the golf course, ive been experimenting with new discs for 14+ years and still learning new things all the time. Happy discing, welcome to the club!!

also.... i havent read all the posts on this thread so sorry if im repeating somebody but when you begin your technique is the most important thing to focus on, fine tuning a selection of discs comes with time and experience and knowing how your style works with different discs,manufacturers and plastic types.

yeah my 171g valk goes strait then fades, no turn, then again I'm still pretty new and don't seem to turn over my 166g RR either. I was about to buy a 163g dx in orange and then the next day the disc shop was open it was gone.

Leopard is probably the best choice for a fairway. This is probably an unpopular opinion, but I really liked the Innova Vroc when I first started out. It goes dead straight and has a comfortable feel. And if you don’t like the Vroc go with a Mako3. The Aviar is a great choice for a putter.

I'm pretty sure the OP had his question answered 11 years ago

It'd be cool if threads that have been completely dead for 5+ years could just get automatically locked.....

Some old threads are fun to read how much answers change (or don't change) over time, and are worthy of a necro-bump. Others, like this one, are best left in hibernation where they belong. It's a subjective distinction, so I'd rather not see an objective amount of time used to permanently lock old threads.
