I am not just pushing this disc because I like it. From what I have seen, the Soft Magnet, is the best putter for beginers.

Also the way it felt in my hand just felt wrong, loved how the disc flew but I couldn't stand to hold it too long if I was gripping it like normal preparing for a shot(thinking about it a little). Still a great disc, but I picked up a star san marino roc the other day and that made the decision for me, bought it and it feels so much better in my hand, just a great overstable mid.

If you are starting to play you wont need to have so many discs,3 discs is good to start with.
If you don´t know how much power you have you should start geting light discs that you could use later on if you need some turn over discs.
Okey,,,for putting you could use a magnet,challenger or a aviar in 150-165g.For a midrange you could chose a panther,kite or a skeeter and for the driving, a goood beginer driver is those with less speed and more glide like a Archangle,Valkyrie or a Teebird.

If i would have to chose from these then i would have taken the challenger,the panther and the teebird and in a low weight.

I don't know that I'd suggest a valk unless it was 150g or less. I replaced my leopard after my second day out(since I lost it) with a 166g Roadrunner and there was a while there where I had to put a pretty big anhyzer on it to get it anywhere just because I didn't have good form or snap or anything. Archangel maybe though. And the problem with going 150 is it being effected by the wind so easily, it would definitely be easier to throw, but on a windy day they would want something closer to 165.

I wouldnt recommend a light putter for that very reason. Nothing more frustrating than a putt that just sails away like a piece of trash in the wind when you barely threw it...or worse boomeranging on you and ending up behind you or hitting you on its return.

When you are beginning to play you should not be thinking about the wind so much because the discs are affected by the wind in a way that you could´t understand on your first rounds.

After some time the lighter discs can be the best wind fighters i you know how to use them.

And remember if you want to get better faster just bring a friend to play with.If you play with somebody you will remember what you have done and learn how to play discgolf faster.

I also agree with the lighter discs in 150 but you could probably go up to 165 and not get that hurt by it, 150 will just be a little further for someone starting out and anything much over 165 and it really makes discs more overstable.

Well you can at least understand how a wind from the side will effect a disc. And maybe if you start to understand how the wind effects it you could successfully throw 150g's but no beginner will understand and for a male that's not elderly 165ish should be fine. But I still stand behind what I said earlier about the valk, I just started throwing a valk and still have trouble sometimes(definitely wish I had something closer to 165 but not below 160).

You are right,AND I have an champion I DYE 175g Valkyrie and it holds the straight line and don´t turn over so much.It would be best to get one in 150-class if you want to start with a Valkyrie..Or just buy one in DX plastic.I have also an 175g DX Valkyrie that almost makes an 90 degree flip when throw with half my power(IT IS VERY BEATEN UP AND ALMOST LANDS UPSIDE DOWN WHEN THROWN ON A HYZER FLIP)
