Frisbee Golf Starter Sets
When it comes to a good Frisbee Golf starter set you want one that is going to provide:
1. Discs that fly well for new players
2. Discs that are durable enough to last a few rounds.
DISCS THAT FLY WELL:
Compared with a traditional frisbee, a golf disc is substantially more “overstable” and flyes very different. In order to make most golf discs fly properly, you need to have excellent form, speed, and snap. Not very many new frolfers posses these abilities, so using the wrong disc for your first few rounds can be frustrating.
Understable discs for beginners.
New frisbee golfers need to purchase “understable” golf discs. Understable discs will stay straighter for longer and provide more distance before fading out at the end of the flight. In general, discs that are lighter weight are more understable than the same mold of a heavier weight. Light weight discs (especially for drivers) are better for beginners because they will provide more distance and distance makes frisbee golf more fun..
Most frisbee golf starter sets are available in super inexpensive plastic. The reasoning behind this is because most new frolfers don’t understand the importance of durability and are only concerned about price. Once a frisbee golf discs starts to get “beat in” the flight of the disc drastically alters.
Franklin and Whamoo starter sets are complete garbage. These discs will get major gashes after just a few throws.
The more reputable frisbee golf brands like Innova and Discraft starter sets are also available in “base plastic” but this base plastic is far more durable. Even then, drivers, with their sharp aerodynamic edges do not last long if you’re playing disc golf courses with any kind of obstacles (even base plastic drivers will last a long time if you’re only throwing it on grassy lawns).
Innova provides “premium plastic starter sets” which give you all three discs in a durable plastic. However, these sets are substantially more expensive and most frisbee golf players prefer a base plastic for their putters.
