If the disc must be a golf disc, then I guess that I would choose something that is slow; so a putter or a midrange.

My first thought was to go with an Aviar. But actually, one could just as well choose lots of other putters that behave just like it. Even actual Aviars that are produced today are not made from the original mold, so there is really nothing sacred about them now.

So, I'll choose to go to midranges, and change the original condition to be, "What is the one mold that every player should take the time to learn to throw early on in their development?"

My choice is the Comet.


However, if I can expand the choices to ones outside of golf discs, then I would probably choose the Discraft Ultrastar sport disc. I wish that I had learned to throw these before getting into disc golf.

You can't tell me what to do.

Roc for one lifespan
Zone
Leopard in Pro - I don't like the mold, but it's too good not to be included

Agreed. Most of the people I play with bag zero midranges.

I'll go Roc, because it's my fav, but would encourage more midrange love in general.

Like seriously? I figure if you are serious enough to own a bag dedicated to disc golf, you probably are good enough to throw a midrange properly.

Tbf, there are not a lot of tight lines in my area. Lots of 250-350' hyzerfests. But that's precisely why I like mids to make it more fun.

Shark, might make help them find a midrange they can use. I have found people struggling with midrange disc, Buzz or Truth is too close to a Leopard/3 or other similar disc they have so they never use it or they struggle trying to force the ROC/Wasp/Compass type of classic beaded midrange style disc even though they have trouble with a beaded midrange. The other nice thing a Shark can do besides being a midrange is take the place of the driving and or approach putter thanks to the profile to save on a disc or two needing to be in the bag.
