Mid range drivers are thicker than fairway and distance drivers, but not as thick as putt and approach discs. The edges or profiles of mid range drivers are less sharp than distance drivers. They don't fly as fast but they are easier to control than longer range drivers and that is why they are recommend for beginners.

Mid range drivers make great multi-purpose discs which means you can play the entire course with just one disc!

Light weight understable standard plastic discs are recommended for beginners. Lighter weight discs are easier to control and won't have as strong of a tendency to fade or curve. Understable discs are the most beginner friendly. Standard plastic discs are not only less expensive if you lose them, but they are more understable than the same models made with higher quality plastics.
