Wedge is the thinnest disc so it should be the easiest to grip for young persons. The Aero is so tall that it may be problematic. XD and Spike are the other thin options for thin discs that are not fast. Well they al are because they have so little friction vs their wind length. The Wedge is fast and middish so it may fade out early but it may help in control some pulling out of mistaken annies more likely than the very undertstable at speeds Spike. Which should be pretty straight for a six year old. What i would do is to have her try out a thin disc too and let her decide for herself. Kids are all about instant gratification so they can get frustrated quickly if the disc does not fly well which is why i recommend also giving her a thin putter.

JR wrote:The age of 9 has huge body control advantages to age 6. I mentioned 6 because 133' has been tossed by a girl at that age and only 4 years more has resulted in some 430' so the question is how many feet per year of age is possible and what the progression is. At 9 she may not yet need a mid necessarily even if she was at the top of the world in her age group. Mids are thin compared to putters and the more understable of them should be viable soon if not now. Years fly by quickly.
