How to choose the proper rim weight?

If throw properly, a higher rim weight discus spins faster and flights longer distance in the air.

However, most beginners lack of ability to spin the discus properly, therefore a high rim weighted discus may fall off the sky prematurely and perform worst than a low rim weighted discus.

It is advised that beginners should stay away from rim weights over 80% until their technique is advanced. They should use low rim weight rubber or wood discus to begin training with because it is easier to control their spin and flight.

When the athletes are able to throw a low rim-weighted discus to hit the ground flat and is still spinning, it might be time to move up in rim weight.

However, if the athletes throw a high rim-weighted discus only to see it turns and falls off the sky very early in flight, the rim weight of the discus is too high and should go to a lower rim weight discus.
