Throw them all a bit find out what feels good, the Leopard should be a good starting spot though.

The first driver I could throw well was a Maverick. I never could, and still can't, throw leopards for some reason.

Get an FD and start throwing it for every single drive, it will be overstable to start, but will beat into a sweet flight. As you get better you will keep using this disc for flip up to turn shots and rollers. If you want to pair it up, get an S Line FD and a D Line FD. The D line will be one of the easiest to throw drivers and beat up quick, the S line will after some time turn into a new D Line FD that won't change. Avoid anything faster than speed 7 as that is the power requirement not how fast the disc moves and if a disc is too flippy it won't be good for any wind at all. The FD is nice and neutral with good distance potential, a slow turn when overpowered and will always be useful.

I dont think Id hang out with that guy. Theres something wrong with him.


As far as what you currently have, Id lean heavy on the Roc and the Leopards for a little while.


Once you are fully committed to playing, if you start looking at discs I would highly recommend a Westside Warship. Although its a midrange, it is sneaky long. There was a time when I was first starting out that I was really struggling with any sort of driver so I took them all out of my bag and would just use the Warship off the tee. It got great distance for me and really helped me figure out nose angles and release angles. After a couple of months of using the Warship for my main driver, when I did start throwing my drivers again I was much improved.

Have fun.

OP already has a Star and Pro Leopard, plus a Sidewinder and TL. Your FD suggestion seems incredibly redundant with what he already bags, especially since he is a beginner.

Not a dumb question my friend. Weights of discs can range from the 130-180g range typically (no higher than 180g). I'd recommend sticking between 160-180g.

A higher weight can give more longevity to the disc & often add stability. For a newer player it could be a good idea to float in the 160-170g range for any mold.

It can be easy to get lost in all the choices of brands, molds, plastics & weights. Keep it simple with 3-4 molds & see if there's a local golf club you can mix with & ask questions.
