Default When you were first starting out...

What was the first disc you bought and when out and played with? In my case a buddy loaned me a an avair and a dx shark to use but I still wanted my own so I bought a dx beast. I went to a park (non disc golf park) because I was embarrassed to throw in front of other people without my friends around. I remember it was raining a bit but it didn't bother me. It sucked because I was only throwing the beast and I remember alot of crumby shots and having to run back and fourth to grab it so I could throw it agian.

Just a random noob story

What are some of your first purchases?

Innova Aero....back when I bought it, it was advertised as a driver. Now it's labeled putt & approach. Amazing to see the advances made over the years. The game has surely changed.

My friend loaned me a JLS for my first round. I went out and bought, and I'm not making this up, a DX Cheetah, a grid stamped Aviar and an X XL.

Innova 150 class 3 disc starter set.

Cheetah, Shark, and an Aviar. I'm pretty sure I lost the Shark a long time ago at Idlewild, not long after the course opened. The Cheetah is in the lake at AJ Jolley hole #2. The Aviar sits in practice basket in the garage.

Fairly certain my first round was played with a cobra I was borrowing. I bought a used DX Viper and a polecat the next day.

I was given a champ orc and a super beat in dx XD by a buddy. I quickly picked up a DX started box from innova with a leopard, Aviar and Shark,and also added a dx beast and dx Valkyrie to the mix.

I first tried to RHBH the orc when I first threw and it maybe went 75ft before crashing to the ground. I then tried a flick and sent the orc out 250ft and was sold on the game. Its amazing what a persons first nice throw will do.
