Choosing the right
discus is about the rim weight, discus
weight and manufacturing material.
Women always throw a 1K discus but males,
depending on their age throw a 1K-2K discus.
Discus' are composed of either rubber, wood
or composite plastic. Rubber discus' are used by beginners and for
practice. The wooden discus is the next level and the composite discus
is usually used by the most advanced throwers.
The last thing to
consider is the rim weight. The heavier the
rim, the more experienced the thrower. The rim
weight affects the overall spin of the discus and
the more advanced the thrower, the more overall
weight that should be transferred to the rim.
Most discus' give rim weight as a percentage(%) of
the overall weight.
