Sorry if this is already somewhere, searching on my phone is really tough. My first disc was a reaper. It was a learning experience, a long, painful, uninformed learning experience. And I went out solo too..
First disc golf disc I bought was a DX Leopard, but that was something like 8 years before I knew about disc golf. The first disc golf discs I bought when I started actually playing were D-P2, D-MD1 and DX Beast. Worked pretty well actually, even if I know realize how bad the Beast was for me at that point. I didn't stick with only those for long, very quickly added more discs. =)

Pro katana because it was the fastest disc they had at the store according to the chart. I started as a forehand thrower though an with a baseball background I could throw it 400' right away. A lot of people at that course started buying katanas after that.

IIRC Champ Valk 175 and soon after that Omega SS. Or possibly at the same time. 8 years ago. Two years prior to that i started with beach discs because those were cheap and i could afford to lose them as a student and me and my friends sucked at finding discs then. And i used similar discs when i first played in the early 1980s.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.
A Bottom Stamp DX Aviar 175. Really Stiff plastic like a Classic Aviar. I think in that same trip I bought a DX Shark at about 166, beat up way too quick and became impossible to throw for me. I didn't know anything about weights at the time. The Aviar is still my main putter, the Shark mysteriously disappeared along the way. Not really sure what happened to it.
This was sometime from a week-month after St. Patty's day 2009 (my first time ever playing).
