Exclamation What discs to buy?

My friend and I have recently picked up the sport about two months ago and absolutely love it! Our local course's average distance is about 300 to 350 feet per hole and we are in need of some new discs. This is a description of our local course:
Family friendly course for players of all skill levels. The front 9 is grassy and open. Shots fly along hillsides, tree lines, up and down the hills and as an added technical hazard, it's usually breezy in the afternoons.
The back 9 is moderate to heavily wooded, with a few tight tunnel shots and two long downhill "Top of the World" shots. Wind and elevation changes add to the challenge.

We are in the market for new discs and our current line up consists of:
150 dx leopard
150 dx shark
150 dx aviar
beat up 175 innova champion disc we found with no name while playing one day.


We have about $40 to spend on new discs and were wondering what you guys would recommend to us and why? (I throw about 300 RHFH and 250 RHBH and my friend throws 275 RHFH and 200 RHBH)

Welcome to the site!

If you want some premium plastic, that is extra durable for the woods you play in, check out MVP discs. A Volt, in particular, would serve you well.

since our front 9 is more open than the back 9, what else would you personally go with?

Don't worry about premo stuff just yet. Grab heavier versions of your aviar, shark, leopard and keep learning. Perhaps throw in a Pro Leopard as well and just learn shot shaping. Also, read more in the technique sections. Have fun!

Since it is almost always windy, what weight should we go up to?
