Innova considers these beginner friendly altho they are not just for beginners. Many advanced and pro players use these too.

Resist the temptation to try a lot of different discs. Concentrate on learning to throw only one disc, preferably a mid range, until you develop a feel for throwing golf discs. As you gain experience, you'll be ready to try other mid range, fairway and distance drivers.

Starting with a light weight, understable, DX, mid range driver or multi-purpose disc golf disc is recommended for new players.

  • Lighter weight discs are easier to control than heavier discs and don't have as strong of a tendency to curve.
  • Understable discs are the most beginner friendly. They have a tendency to turn right when thrown flat, straight and with average power for right handed back hand (RHBH) throws. It's just the opposite for lefties. Some stable discs are beginner friendly too. But avoid overstable discs until you gain some experience.
  • DX discs are less expensive if you lose one and more understable than the same models made with higher quality plastics.
  • Mid range drivers or multi-purpose discs are easier to control than fairway and distance drivers. A player can use one of these to play the entire course.
