Yesterday we ran a batch of 150g-160g S Elements and after watching my niece Jamie (11) and my cousin Adara (14) throw them around, it reminded me of how important starting off with lighter weight discs can help produce better results when just getting started.
Its really a shame more new players dont know how much starting with the lighter stuff helps develop better technique.
A 150g -160g Element would probably be the longest disc in 80% of the new players bags.
It flies so flat and glides so long that they basically dont fall off line,,, even for new players who lack rotation and velocity.
Light Weight Drivers like the Apache at 135g are so easy to throw and dont wear down the arm if youre not used to throwing 50 plus drives a day.
All of our putters in the 150g-160g range have basically the same stability as there heavy weight big brothers which gives the range from under to over-stable for all putting styles and Lay-up needs.
If you are wanting to get a friend into the sport,,, let them know that light weight discs are available and that they should give them a try!
