If you are a brand new player picking up a golf disc for the first time, we don't recommend a distance driver. But if you are a relatively new player and know the feel of throwing golf discs, then these beginner friendly distance drivers are for you.

Distance drivers have the thinnest sharpest profiles (edges) and widest rims of all discs. Because of their sleekness, they are very fast and more difficult to control than mid range drivers. Altho there are distance drivers for all skill levels, beginners or players with little or no experience should avoid most of them until they have much more experience.

So if you perhaps have started with a mid range multi purpose disc golf disc and now you are ready to move on to longer distance drivers, then we suggest you start with light weight, understable, standard plastic drivers because they are the easiest distance drivers to control and learn. Altho these are considered good for beginners, many pros use them as well for various shots.
