I was thinking about trying some new discs in the line-up the other night...thought I'd post my imaginary bag here for feedback, since some of the molds are totally new to me, and others I've only thrown a few times (discs in blue are already part of my normal line-up).
For reference, I'm a 973 rated player with about 380' max golf distance, occasionally reaching 400'. My real life go-to discs are the Orc/Starfire (distance), Champ Teebird (fairway), Champ Firebird (overstable), SOLS (understable), Ching Roc, and M Wizard...all around 175g.
RustyP's Possible Bag:
All Out Distance*:
168-170g Star Destroyer
*this is a slot that I dont' currently have in my bag. Right now, all the drivers I use for "all out distance" are the same ones I use for "controlled distance". I'm thinking "all out distance" driver would only be used when the need for distance outweighs the need for total accuracy.
170-172 Star Starfire (already in my real bag...slightly overstable distance)
170-172g SOLF (stable distance...not sure which run I would use, probably 1.1 as the 1.2 might overlap with the Starfire)
170-172 SOLS (slightly understable distance)
170-172 Discmania CD or 170-172 Star TL (would like to use one mold in various stages of wear for the fairway driver slot)
170-172 Z Predator
Mids and Putters will be the same:
DX Rocs (~175 in various stages of wear)
Soft Wizards (175 for putting)
SS Wizards (170 for approach / long putts)
I've field-thrown a friend's 169 Star Destroyer a handful of times, and right now it's only getting slightly more D than my Orcs, but I think with some practice I could get it out there considerably further. Not sure about this slot yet...
I had the SOLF in my bag for a while after it was first released, but switched in favor of the Orc. I haven't thrown the 1.2 run, but I've heard they are more stable than the 1.1 (hence my note about the possible overlap with the Starfire).
I've never thrown a Discmania CD or Star TL, but from all the research I've done on them, they both seem like good canditates for the one-mold fairway driver slot. Right now I use Champ Teebirds, but I feel they're a little too stable for my liking (and I occasionally supliment the TB with a Polaris LS when I need a straighter line). The fairway driver slot is the only part of my current bag that I have a hard time filling for more than a few weeks at a time...just haven't found a disc that I'm comfortable with yet.
I have a little experience with the ESP Pred, but none with the Z.
in the bag: pd2 / destroyer / orion lf / sidewinder /eagle / teebird / rancho roc / fuse / ion / jokeri / wizard
