Revisiting my bag...ins, outs, and what have you's

Postby Coldpunk » Mon Aug 03, 2009 10:31 am

*new set ups posted further down for comparison*

Maybe it's just because it's Solty's old black on black revo. The following things are inside that bag.
Overstable distance
Star destroyer 171
Star destroyer 170
Star destroyer 168
Champ destroyer 173

Overstable fairway
Star eagle x 171
Star eagle x 170
Star eagle x 170

Stable/understable fairway
E sabre 172
E sabre 171

Massively overstable situatuional/trick shots
CE blaze 174
E spirit 175(opaque and as hard as a rock)

Midrange
E Wizard 174
Z comet 174
Z comet 176
Champ rancho roc

Putters
M wizard 175 x2 (both are very firm but still have the soft feel)
D rattler weight unknown

Any blatant things stand out? I throw both fh and bh, about 50/50 off the tee on most courses, this is my first year with the backhand. I'm not a fan of dx plastic hence all the premium stuff. My star destroyers are for both fh and bh distance. When they go flippy on me fh I bring in a new one and relegate the flippy ones to bh distance duty. The sabres and eagles are almost exclusive to bh throws. I really only toss fh for distance or if the tee shot just sets up for fh. The sabres don't see mch use now that I've got the hang of the comet. My oldest sex is starting to finish less lss now and I see the sabre going the way of the buffalo soon.

Since adding the comets and the blaze in April I've never walked up to a lie and thought " what am I going to throw here". I don't think I'm too mold heavy but I'd definitely appreciate some other opinions.

With the EX, Comet, and Blaze I see the sabre as an extra mold there for comfort or very situational shots. Your bag is very similar to mine.

Yeah I honestly haven't thrown them since may. They've moved to the far side of the bag and their only real purpose for being there is to push the mids closer to the middle making them easier to grab. While I have your attention though Dave, Lets say I plan on buying a sweet ass backpack as soon as they are released, would my current setup fit? Or would I have to trim some fat to cram it all in?

You'd have to use a side pocket.

A towel can be a quite handy tool for this purpose (if you actually aren't throwing the sabres)

That does work too. I may just put my little waterproof box in there on that side so if I get caught in a sudden storm I'm not worrying about my phone or wallet getting wet.

This is the bag for the rest of this year. With the only possible changes coming if I find a better understable striker to replace one I recently lost, or if I get sick of the sinus taking up space in my unbelievably comfortable grip bag.

Distance Drivers

172 champ destroyer x2 (one new, one beat)

169 star destroyer (flippy, beat in for several months by a friend who throws alllll thumbers)

171 gold line flow (slightly flippy but quickly becoming my favorite disc)

175 gold line flow (more stable than it's lighter twin)

Fairway drivers
170 opto striker (understable and beat in)

171 opto striker (Stable to overstable)

Mids
177 ESP comet (most used mid)

180 glow z comet (slightly overstable comet)

177 opto pain (overstable mid)

Putters
173 orange rattler
(60' and in unless it's windy)
175 no tooling firm wizard
(security blanket/windy putter)
currently auditioning a 174 sinus for stupid retarded crazy wind putter

Trick shots/thumber/crazy headwind fighters
175 opaque old e spirit x2 (stupid overstable, get out of jail disc)

171 z predator (thumbers and headwind bh drives)

I'd think you still have a spot in your lineup for a slower fairway like a cyclone or gazelle, simply judging the speed gap between comets and strikers. Of course, if you're powering down on strikers ok, then it's most likely not a problem. Looks good otherwise!

How'd you end up scoring at the glow round on Friday?

Ha! DFL in the glow with a 49. I tore it up Monday at league and hit metal on 18 in the throw off with a pred spike hyzer.

I do need to find something between the comets and strikers. 4 out of 5 bogeys Monday were due to not having my understable striker and trying to throw a stable one. I think I'll throw a 11x gazelle and a sabre back in there and see how they do.
