My son has a crazy selection of 1.6K now and throws them all but has some favorites. Some of the discs he throws regularly are:
-Purple Flyer and Orange Flyer have great feel and narrower rim. (I picked up both of them in nearly new shape for $50 each) He really likes the purple flyer.
- Nelco Odyssey - he has 2 of them and other high school kids throwing over 170' have used them for the last high school season and liked them.
- Hollowood - very durable discus, easy to throw, no feel.
- Ultimate Spin - nice discus, need to be throwing a mile for it to make sense (probably 185'+).
- Skymaster - great discus but really designed for big throwers can get very wobbly if your sloppy.
- Polanik - good cheap practice discus and every high school should have a few. very tough and good to learn with.
- Black First Place - 1.5k nice feel and good for competiton.
- OTE VHM - Feels good, looks good and flys well but has like 85% rim weight.
There are a few cheaper discs he has kicking around as well. It does appear (maybe its psychological) that he throws an 80%+ rim weight an extra meter or two (3-6').
