Discs for kids or Weaker Arms

​The Mini Buzzz

This is a great mid-range disc that can be used for driving with beginner players and kids alike, the mini buzzz, sporting a very light weight of about 62 grams and very small diameter of 6 inches across compared to the usual disc length of 8 to 9 inches, is much smaller. This disc a must for anyone with younger kids that want to drive farther and keep up with their parents or someone with a stronger arm, because it is so small and light weight the arm strength needed isn’t nearly as much as a very overstable driver like the Dynamic Discs – Enforcer.
