Work in progress bag

Postby 1937Schwinn » Wed Dec 17, 2008 6:15 pm

I'm a high Am2 / low Am1 player with moderate power. I max out at about 360' in an open grass field (actual flight, no skip distance). I've bought a ton of plastic over the past year, and I'm trying to ween myself off this habit. I throw sidearm as much as backhand, with equal power and accuracy (or lack thereof).

Here's my current bag (I've tried to limit myself to carrying no more than 12 discs):

Distance Discs
Star T-Rex, 172 (only use this for really windy days, usually don't carry it as the Boss has all the stability I need if it's not windy)
Champion Boss 173
Star Wraith 171
Star Valkyrie 171
Older Champion Valkyrie 175 (less stable than the Star Valk)
Sometimes carry a Champion Beast 171, although I can do about the same shot shape with the Valks.

Control Discs
Champion Banshee 170
Champion Teebird 172
Gateway Assasin 172 (understable/straight, with no fade at all)

Midrange
Z Buzzz 172
Gateway E Element 175

Putt/Approach
Supersoft Wizard 172 (fairly new, still pretty stable 40'-175' shots)
Glow Magic (only use 40' and in) - may move this out once my SS Wizard gets really worn in, and cycle in a brand new Wizard, maybe soft or medium vs. SS

Any comments / suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks,
Scott

pretty complete bag setup got pretty much everything you need! Good setup the valk and assassin are fairly similar you might be able to do without one

I've never had another disc with a flight pattern like the assasin. Even the valks have pronounced low speed fade. The assasin (at least the one I have) just keeps going on the same line (either straight, or a soft right hand turn, depending on how hard I throw it) until it hits the ground. I'd like to get rid of a mold or two out of the bag, and start carrying multiple discs of the same mold (in different plastic/weight/stage of wear), but at this stage, I can't really figure out what to get rid of. Since I don't have any DX plastic in the bag, most of my discs fly about the same as when they were new. Maybe I should try a DX valk and break it in to replace the assasin?

you can tune the assasin to more stability or keep the valks what ever you prefer, I tuned an assasin to about a tl and it is avery versitle disc. Its easy to do
