Hi, first post here. I'm a beginner at disc golf. I had gotten into it a couple years ago with friends but stopped but started back up recently and enjoy it even more. My girlfriend also just played her first game, and she really enjoys everything about it, but I want to find a good disc for her to play with so she can enjoy playing the game.
I have two discs right now that I got a couple years back. A Firebird and a Classic Roc, both the lowest price models. I didn't know until recently that Firebirds are bad for beginners, I just had bought it because it looked cool. I'm looking for a driver that is beginner friendly and will stay straight. Its not too important for it to be max distance. I can drive well on occasion and my most recent game I actually had some pretty nice drives with the Firebird, but I was very inconsistent. I understand the Roc would be better for approaches and putts (my girlfriend and I had some nice fail drives with it the other day).
For drivers I heard that the Archangel, Valkerie or Dragon might be good, but I hear different things every where. I'm also planning on picking up a Buzzz which I know is a midrange disc like the Roc but from what I've read it would be better at driving and general use than the Roc, which seems better for putting. The other day I used my friend's Cyclone a couple times but wasn't very impressed with it. I think I would need something by Innova or Discraft since there is a place near the local college campus that has many of their discs but I don't recall what other brands they had. I'm also looking to spend probably 10 dollars or less per disc, its just a fun hobby for us right now. Thanks for the help.
