    ... i also know it is foolhardy to only have lightweight stuff, 'cause you can't throw it in the wind...

    ... i would be very interested to hear from teresa, carie and suzie q about what weights they throw... girls???

    peace,

    I agree with Emma here. I started out throwing in the 150 range, but what made the difference for me was learning the proper technic, (thanks to Nate). I now throw 150 to 162. My go to driver that I get the most distance out of is my 158 r-pro katana. My midrange discs are also the heavier side, and I putt max weight. Emma is right though about the wind. I found out what works and what didn't work in my bag at team disc golf last month at Bonneville. My more understable light stuff was crap. The disc that worked the best for me in the wind was my champion 157 firebird.

      peace,
      em
      I throw a variety of weights, depending if it is backhand or forehand. For forehand, I tend to throw 150-165g (teebirds, orcs, valks, sidewinders). Because forehand is a different beast, I throw a heavier disc, 162-169g (orcs, destroyers and katanas) but keep a beat-in 150g Banshee for a 200-250ft money shot. For windy days I keep a few overstable 170s for kicks. Putters and midranges are max weight.

      Ladies, if you are just starting out, you deserve new discs that are weight-appropriate; none of your man's left-overs. If he (or significant other) wants you to play more, then they need to pony up and get you some legit plastic. Or, you can treat yourself to a few discs.

            Randy was very sweet, in that when I got the recommendation to use heavier discs, he used his first scrip ever to get me the Vision, rather than let me just try and work it out with his castoffs. On the other hand, he's tried it a couple times, and has let me know that if I need to go back to lighter discs, he'd be more than glad to take the Vision off my hands!

              LOL! Thanks! I only started really playing last spring but I have been practicing with my boyfriend and friends every chance I get and since I've started strength training, I've noticed that I've been able to handle certain discs much better than before. For example, my Flex Surge SS, I used to shank that forehand drive all the time, now I can get more distance, not as much as I would like but I can get it to go in the direction I want it to go, it's so cool! I'm going to start participating in tournaments this year and see how I rank.

                That is awesome. Playing in tournaments will definitely help your game improve it did mime for sure. Our 2011 Chick Flick tournament will be August 13th & 14th hopefully you can make it down for that.

                              I just re-read this thread to see what disc and weights you ladies are throwing for mids

                              I feel like allisons moving up in her game a little, and would get some benefit from some slightly heavier mids

                              her mids right now are
                              dx 147 stingray
                              dx 148 shark

                              she is also starting to use her dx 175 xd (she got from chick flick) more as an approach

                              I was mostly looking at replacing the shark- with maybe a buzzz, buzzz ss, or a roc
                              but im having a hard time deciding on how much heavier she should go
                              and having a hard time finding a buzzz ss in the low 160s
                              which I think would be best at this point

                                SS Wizard 174g

                                The biggest difference is the weights of disc which I use more 150g to 160g expect for Buzzz and putters. I see most of the players have back up discs, and I do have back up discs but it is in other bag which I bring with my bag.
