hope i didn't piss any of you ladies off... but it doesn't make sense for us to throw as heavy (or heavier!) than dudes... our muscles just aren't as big... unless you're juicin'...
99 percent of women do not have enough testosterone in their bodies to develop muscles like men do... anyways, yeah that sounds like some of the masters or grandmasters players that I have played with and tried to get them to move down weights cuz they complain they can't throw as far as they did last year and they hurting after rounds etc... It's part of the game, gotta adapt. Before I really understood this part of the game, I had Tracey throwing 164-170 and she struggled a lot. Then I did my homework and found out she should be throwing 145-160, got her a few discs and her game transformed into something much more stable and fun for her. Now all her discs range from 146-154 with the exception of her buzzz's and windy day putter. Her go to drivers are a 150g champ valk and 150g ce-pro leopard (i recently found a beautiful backup 150g ce-pro leopard and she loves me more now)
Also, for kids, give them 118-135g discs. Zayne has many discs and his new fave is a disc I picked up at final9, a dx 130g cobra, he's getting 75-100 feet consistently with that.
