A beginners disc should be able to teach the person lines and should be easy to bring up to power. That is why the shark is a good disc, it shapes lines well and can be brought up to power easily. Other mids I would recommend before the Z buzzz:
"User friendly" and "teaching tool" are different things. For many a beginner the most user friendly disc would be something like an Optimizer ( ie... near as flippy as a paper plate) but as a teaching tool, with much greater long range benefit, a Buzzz is great. You must manipulate a Buzzz to get it fly straight. Once that task is learned (with the proper flat angle of release) a player can apply that lesson to other discs and take a big step toward competence.
Of course a Buzzz is not the only way to learn this lesson. But it is a disc which can remain in a player's bag forever as advancing skill does make it obsolete. Just the opposite, advancing skill makes it more valuable and cherished. Buzzzes are designed to fly straight, even when thrown with power and this is one of the most useful shots in the game.
