no i lost it on hole #2. since the ice storm, a lot of the trees that were there to keep shots from flying out have fallen down. i was trying to "go for it" and crank it the hole off the tee. over extended and there was nothing there to stop it.

i've lost a handful of discs on hole #12 also though. i hate that fucking hole. a million trees with the open fairway 50+ feet away from the tee and a lake to the left. ain't no fun.

You don't understand what the lake shots are like in NWA. Did you lose it on the wooded hole at Northshore (they changed numbering so many times, but I think it's #12 now)? I kicked a Nike Sabre into the lake there last January.


I was just being a smart ass.

Teerex was probably not a good analogy, either, since some of those are Wraiths, too. But if your Illusions are meathooks, sounds good.

It's not what you asked, but fixing that will help control, consistancy and distance on both the wooded and open holes.

just went and tested my new bag in the cold, wind, and rain.

star wraith 171 - D, didn't even pull it out
e illusion 173 - hooks mcgee, doesn't work for me for anything as well as my xcaliber, so it might get swapped
e savage 173 - ERRYTHANG
e sabre 176 - control game
mirus 171 - faster and straight (holding a spot right now, but i like how it throws)
x2 dx rocs 180 - one new and straight the other one kinda beat
x3 ss wizards - beat, not beat, putter

scored +2 for the day. good for me, especially in such shitty weather. loving a more minimal bag. having a much easier time picking a disc i know and like and letting it and my throw do the work. played an all putters game a couple of days ago, which helped me discover some things about my form flaws. i guess you dgr schmucks know a thing or two.

e savage 173
ce savage 172
e sabre 176
mirus 171
dx roc 180

So after experimenting with this and that for quite some time, I've settled in to a bag that I am pretty confident with.

Spider monkey setup:

Last tournament bag

Distance Drivers:
- S TD
- S PD

Stable Control Drivers:
- Champ Teebird
- Seasoned Star Teebird
- Seasoned GL River

Overstable Driver:
- Opto XXX

Mids:
- Fresh KC Pro Roc
- 05 SB Roc
- GL Fuse

Putters:
- Seasoned M Wizard
- E Wizard
- Seasoned S Magic
- Puttin OG Magic


Current test bag

Distance Drivers:
- Star Valk
- 4x JK Pro Valk
- Also testing out CDs

Stable Control Drivers:
- Champ Teebird
- Seasoned Star Teebird
- Seasoned GL River

Overstable Driver:
- Opto XXX

Mids:
- Opto Pain
- Seasoned GL Pain
- Opto Fuse

Putters:
- Seasoned M Wizard
- E Wizard
- Puttin OG Magic

So even though I don't have many molds, I'd still like to slim down my mold numbers. I have lots of Rocs of varying plastics and stabilities that I am pretty confident I could play exclusively with, however I've been beating in a GL Pain to see if it will straighten out and it seems to be doing so. If they beat in enough I might try Pains only. The Fuse is just too nice right now though. I'd also like to have a flippy wizard, but that may take artificially beating one, because I have a wizard that I've played with for years and it's just now starting to show some negative HSS. I'd also like to see if a primo plastic TB will ever get flippy enough to replace the River. Dx TBs I've thrown in the past seem to flip really fast as opposed to the gradual turn of the River. I might try EXs and ELs here to see how they fair for more versatility. Lastly, I'm trying out stuff for more distance. Throwing Valks now. I'd like to try CDs out here, but may move to something even a hair faster. Comments?
