Putt and Approach disc golf discs are thicker than drivers and have blunt edges making it easier for chains to grab discs and drop them into the basket. They are slower than mid range discs.

Light to mid weight understable standard plastic discs are recommended for beginners. See much more Beginner Information.

If you still have questions about any discs or would like some advice on what type of discs fit you best, please contact us. We've been in the business since 1987, throwing even longer and we love what we do!
