I was originally thinking Valk since I have been wanting to try those out, but it sounds to me that a Cobra would be a better choice for the enjoyment of the new golfers. I'm thinking light weight would still be necessary. Maybe I could still learn some finesse by taking some light Cobras to the practice field.
Newbs should definitly use mids before drivers. they are much easier to learn proper form than drivers.
the cobra is a great learning disc but i still think that a shark is the easiest disc to learn how to throw. i cant tell you how many ppl i know and have heard of that are good who started out with a shark and shark only.
a vak isnt the greatest driver to begin on. a teebird would be a much better choice. its straight and stable.
if it were my i would pick up 2x sharks(one 165ish & one 172ish) 1x teebird 167ish, 1x roc 170ish and a orc or beast (160s) for when you develop better form and technique with the others.
do they not have a choice for putter??? b/c that should be taken over a power driver.
