Yeah the Shark is the mold I recommend to others who want to get started in Disc Golf or want only one disc to play disc golf. I hope that the Shark mold does not go away when Dave D passes on and a new person owns Innova.

For a single disc round, a Shark is the mold to get as it can handle wind being OS yet is not so OS that the mold will not work for putting yet in that same vain the mold has a putter shape to it so you can putt with the mold.

The uncles I know who play disc golf do not use or even like the Shark, the closest is an uncle who uses the Stingray, basically a US version of the Shark. Now for cousins that play none of them like the Shark, closest is a cousin that uses the Discraft disc closest in shape to a Star Shark, a domed ESP Comet.

The 3 I recommend to everyone who has never thrown a golf disc is thus:

Birdie
Shark
Leopard

These three teach you a lot about what you’re doing and reward low power clean throws in a way that any beginner will find exciting and educational. Birdies especially, I still bag two.

I would change out the Birdie for a Pole cat as the Birdie can feel odd with the thumbtrack to some players and they have grip issues with the Birdie.
