The tee bird or an eagle for your driver. gotta go with a buzzz flx plastic will last for ever. Putter is your pick to many good ones to chose from. i use a challenger but I know it is not the most popular but it works for me.

I suggest the Champ Beast for the Driver

Coyote for a Midrange

And of course A Magnet or an APX for the putter

The can of worms has been opened once again.

You cannot go wrong with the Aviar for a putter but if you putt with a specific style you might want to find something that is more finely tuned to that.

My favorite and most versitile mid range disc is my Skeeter. It is my only ace disc and I can make it do just about whatever I want, including some of the longest straightest flights around.

For a fairway drive I would pick up a TL (or TeeBird if you don't like Star plastic). The TL is definately my favorite disc of all time.

For a faster driver, depending on how much snap and power you have, I would reccomend the Starfire since you throw drives mostly forehand. Trust me, you want something a bit overstable for forehand drives.

I would buy everything in Champion Plastic if you can find it. TLs are harder to find in Champion and you usually have to end up buying some sort of fundraiser disc to get it. But, Champion plastic will hold the flight characteristics the longest, even a bit longer than Star plastic.

Well, for the driver I would say a Valkyrie in champ plastic. I did just pick up a Star Wraith...found it in the lake unmarked. I don't know much about them, but it quickly jumped up to the top in just a few throws...see if you can throw a friend's or something. They are fun on a forehand drive.

For the midrange, I used a Wolf, and I loved that disc. A Buzz is also really nice.

My putter is a Pro Pig. It is my favorite disc, and it weighs 150g so it floats...but I experimented with a ton before I got to it. You have to find the one disc that works for you, which means that we can't really help you on it.

You putt with a 150 g disc? Does it not get windy in Texas? I know the Pig is over stable but to compensate for 150?

Yeah I putt with it. It is windy here all the time, but the pig isn't phased by it at all. It has always been great in the wind, that's why I love the thing. I know what you mean though...I thought the same thing before I tried it out.
