Stuff for my 12 year-old daughter

Postby Craig » Mon Oct 24, 2005 3:23 pm

I was interested in getting some equipment for my 12 year old daughter, so we can play together.

Any recomendations for discs? Even better, are you aware of any bundles or products out there that are geared toward kids?

Thanks

I don't know of any bundles but discs in the 150 weight class should be suitable. A Shark is a good all-purpose beginner disc.

my recommendation:

driver: 150 class or lighter
midrange: 150 class or low-mid 160's
putter: 150 class or low-mid 160's

innova makes the ace in 130g for the edge program. some other choices that work well are gateway sabres in the 130-140g range, the lightning #1 driver/#1 flyer which are available 135-145g range, and the lightning #3 driver which is available in the same range.

you may want to consider a disc that is somewhere between a midrange and driver that will glide well at low speeds, such as a 150-class dx cobra.

my only real advice is to stick to d/dx plastic and avoid champion/z.

the place i work for a while had a 150 class set for $12 (cyclone, hawk, apx), but those are gone now.

looking for edge discs

Thanks. I went to the innova site and saw that they mention the edge program. Unfortunately, I haven't seen any edge discs for sale online. Is anyone aware of an online vendor that sells these discs?
