Discs for a 12 year old?

Postby Taylor » Thu Feb 23, 2012 4:54 pm

It seems that my little brother has started to outgrow his 150 class innova starter pack.

He is a forehand dominant thrower (he has his moments backhand by lacks snap/spin) and throws his leopard on a little hyzer flip.
I just got him a 156 champ valk that took him a little practice to get down. It flies kinda like a firebird for him. He throws it hard on anhyzer and trusts it to even out and come back, i've seen him overdo it once or twice and turn it over.

What are some good discs for a growing 12 year old to throw?

150g Innova Wedge is a good approach disc and can work well as a putter.

150 Latitude Diamond would be similar to the Leo but prettier, more durable so it will retain the same stability longer, and more workable than the 150 Valk.

My son is almost 14 but has been playing for a few years. His favorites are his diamond, a star leopard and the cheetah. He also loves to throw the meteor for a mid. He's deadly with that thing if his distance control is on.

He likes them about 160 except the diamond which is 150.
