My 6 y/o really likes his Sharks and 160g Star Leopard.

You're probably looking for discs that are Speed 6 or slower and neutral to understable.
Base plastic is also good because it beats in more quickly and allows for a longer flight...

The glide and grip I think. It’s super easy for her to hold and she throws with some hyzer so getting it to speed on a good line is intuitive for her young arm. I have no doubt if she keeps playing that in two years or less the diamond will be going farther but for now that’s not the case.

My unathletic 14 y.o. son throws a Comet (don’t know how heavy it is) from a standstill for every shot that isn’t a putt. Even though he rarely plays, he gets pretty consistent results from it.

My suggestion is to find the lightest and/or beat in Comet you can find and try that

No, it's not. I was throwing discs that large at that age. If anything, a large disc is easier for a child.
I started my nephew out, at 6, on Sonics, which is also a large diameter disc. If I had to do it over, I probably would have gotten a Jr ultimate disc from Discraft. Those are dg legal and easy to learn to throw.

Ooooph, Sonics are not nearly as large as condors. I may have to try it out but those are just two different animals. In fact a Sonic is closer to the minimum diameter than it is to a Condor.

This will be the next step up for sure. But for right now I am getting stuff under 120g.

The Condor is about the same size as the freestyle and all-pro discs that I was throwing at that age though. Of course it has a bevel... that might make it harder to grip with a child's hands

A light weight Cobra or something similar would be good I think.
