Default Out of the game for 10 years- I need an adult!!

I haven't really played in 10 years but as my 10 year old is now getting into the game I am looking to update my antiquated discs. Here is what I previously used:

Destroyers
TL
T-bird
Leopard
Buzz
Soft Wizard

Have there been any significant upgrades that would kick these discs out of the bag? Thanks!

- I also posted some old discs in the 'is this worth anything' thread if anyone wants to crush my dreams.

No, plenty of new options but I reckon those discs still work just fine.

I agree; you can't go wrong with the classics.

Keep this thread in mind when people talk about new disc "technology" forcing us to lengthen courses.

At this point everything is a knockoff of the discs in your bag, no point in trying a "kind of a Destroyer" or "Buzzz-like mid."

Those are all solid discs... I could easily play with just those. They all are beginner friendly too*... Seeing as how you are getting back into it, some of your game will look like a new player.

*The destroyer is a little less beginner friendly...but shouldn't be too hard to work.

Thanks for the input. Me and my wallet thank you! About playing like a beginner, I know what you mean. After a few field sessions, I have a lot of my distance back but I am putting with the acumen of a drunken child. To the technique section!

Good bag. No one would know you've been gone, although you might check your Buzzz, Teebird, and other discs to see if they're special and somehow worth too much to keep throwing... My only question is, why no Firebird? But you had that option 10 years ago as well.

There is, however, lots of "new" plastic to try. But there are probably plenty of folks on here who have all those discs in your bag. TL maybe less, but all the others are really, really common still. I still prefer Teebird to Teebird3, and Leopard to Leopard3.

Dump that old plastic in the trash, gramps. I've got one word for you - V-Tech. Thank me later.

Just kidding though, I'd say stick with what you used to throw. They haven't come out with anything better this past 10 years, just different.
