Leopard wrote:Leopard / Shark / Aviar is a great starter set. it'll reward good technique -- most of the discs on the market in some way or another will reward bad technique, because they're specialized. the three in that set are specialized to be very neutral-flying discs. the more neutral, the more their flight is a reflection of your form.

you are referring to the Innova starter set. I started with that one myself. all the discs in that pack are light weight (150g). The Shark and the Leopard are fine discs at that weight. The Aviar not so much but it could pass. Since you say you are an empty nester I'm guessing you are in your late 40's early 50's and 150g discs would be easier for an older gent like yourself to learn the game. If you want just one disc I would try a Mako in the mid 160g. I've seen those at Dick's here in South Carolina. but I'm not sure what they stock on the left coast.
as for baskets it depends on how much time you have on your hands and how skillful you are at welding. I've seen old car rims used for baskets. I think a car rim bottom with a bicycle rim top would be nice (chains hanging between obviously.) otherwise I would just buy some practice baskets online. discgolfcenter.com marshallstreetdiscgolf.com discnation.com gottagogottathrow.com are good places to look.

But since you are worried about your joints, stick with the lighter weight discs. you may also want to try out a Hero SuperHero. http://www.herodiscusa.com/hero-super-hero.html it is worth every penny. I use it as a warm up disc and for playing catch. it works terrifically for learning to throw smooth and pain free.
JR wrote:Hi and welcome! Discs turn at the early part of the flight and fade in the end. A hard fade in the end with Sharks and Aviars usually comes only from throwing high nose up. That stops the disc fast and makes it stall. Cures are making sure you are at least upright, maybe a little weight forward, when the disc leaves. Pulling the disc at a constant height above the ground helps. The disc should be oriented in the hand so that the front of the disc isn't up, when you push the wrist down from resting position.
