When talking to new women almost every weekend in the shop I always recommend throwing an entire (yes EVERY shot) with a stable mid-range disc (Roc, Cobra, Stingray,etc), and trying both back and fore-hand shots. This is usually if it's their very first round. The disc tends to stay in the middle making it easier to find, and more fun for the new player. As a progressive disc, mostly I suggest a 150 Leopard in Pro or DX plastic as it is easy to grip, and a Rhyno or Banger putter, as the rims on these make it easy to keep your thumb where ya'spose tah
helps with the "flutter effect", and both are easy to get super straight. Discraft has the X line of drivers which are great for straight long distance shots, and won't retire from your bag as you get better. The XS & XL in z-elite or x-elite plastic are great. That's my two cents, from a chick that sells discs. Most of all remember it is only 1% the disc, and 99% the player, so form is everything!
