1x S DD Hysteria (testing stuff)
1x Pro Katana (see above)
1x Star Roadrunner (filling the bag, light tl handles pretty much same things)

2x Ch Teebird (175g stable)
1x Star EagleX (170g testing)
2x Star Tl (170g not so stable)
2x Ch Firebird

1x Gold Fuse or Esp Meteor (dropped my oldest d buzzz, dont really see any difference between these two)
2x Esp Buzzz
1x Z buzzz
1x Flx drone

2x S Magic (putting, backup)
1x M magic (turnover drives)
1x M Wizard (windy, slight hyzer drives)


Superlost with distance drivers and testing everything, maybe I should go back to try Pro destroyers, last time I threw them I really didnt know how to throw..
Ordered a couple of P-DD2's so we'll see, they might be too much of a disc for me though.

Had a meltdown and lost 5 discs at Pickard last weekend so I had to rebuild the bag.

D Drivers:
171g Pro Wraith - primary distance disc.
169g Pro Katana - if I really need a little extra and accuracy is not all important.
174g Z Surge SS - for a couple specific holes that are long, gradual bends to the right.

Overstable Driver:
175g Star XCaliber - if it absolutely must go left

Fairways:
170g Star Teebird - do I need to comment? Anything from slightly right to hard left from about 300'
174g ESP XL - trying to replace my lost River. Doubt it will stay in after I replace the River at this point.

Mids:
can't remember g KC Pro Roc - Its a Roc. It does everything but anny shots.
180g GL Fuse - Once again, I f*ucking love this disc. If it needs to go straight, gradual right, hard right, or a placement just short of Teebird range on any line.
170ish D Buzz - Why not? Everyone seems to like them. I love my Roc and Fuse but I figured I have to at least give one a tryout.

Putters:
KC Pro Aviar - throwing putter. If I have a short drive, approach, or need to go around a tree with a hyzer.
JK Aviar - all other putting duties.

There are naturally a few misc discs in my bag too (Champ Orc, some worn DX aviars, Star Beast among them) for very specific shots or getting a tryout for a permanent spot.
KC/JK/DX Aviars
Fuse | Roc
Eagle | Teebird | Firebird
Archon | Pro Wraith | Destroyer

From May 2010:
Eric O wrote:3 S Wizards Soft/Med
3 DX Rancho Rocs (occasionally will replace the newest with a Star Rancho where durability is an issue)
1 Champ Gator
2 Star Eagles
1 Z Pred
1 Star Orc
2 Champ Orc
1 1st Run ESP Nuke


I finally got a PD to try out recently and it almost lives up to the ridiculous amount of hype it basks in around here. I've been modifying my bag around them in stages. I did a similar thing with SOLFs for a time after they became available across several types of plastic, but eventually they were overtaken by Orcs. We shall see in time whether or not the PD bag lasts. Here's what it's looking like at the moment (discs in bold are new additions to the bag since my last posting):

3x S Wizard Soft/Med
3x DX Rancho Roc
1x CFR Gator
1x Star Eagle
1x CE Eagle-X
2x P-PD
1x S-PD
1x C-PD
1x Champ Wraith


The CE Eagle is like a new Star Eagle that hit a couple trees, but it stays that way forever. PDs are pretty much self explanatory for the majority of distance driving duties. Nukes are out in favor of Wraith. I went with Z Nukes once they were on the market. Fantastic disc but probably a touch fast for my arm. I can get a Wraith out almost as deep but on a wider variety of lines and without having to try as hard.

There is nothing there for max D in a headwind, but once my larger capacity golf bag arrives I will look in my stack to add a high PLH Wraith, or another mold if that doesn't cut it.

As much as I love Eagles, there is probably some speed overlap with PDs. Right now I'm still finding it useful to carry both but I may end up auditioning Cyclones instead to bridge the gap a little more evenly between Rocs and PDs.

I know you may not have enough reps in with PDs yet to know, but how much of a distance gap are you seeing between them and your Wraiths? I love throwing a Wraith but I end up always going for the PD for the increase in control/accuracy. The distance gap for me seems to be no more than 15ft or so when I'm hitting around 415-435 with both.

I don't break 400. :( I haven't had a chance to hit the field with both of these discs together yet but based on a few tosses in the open after a rd, it looked like I was getting around an additional 30ft from a Wraith vs PD. The only time on the course I choose something faster than a PD is if the extra distance would get me a putt, and on wide open holes over 500ft, etc. You can see based on the 4:1 ratio of PD to Wraith what I throw most often for distance. The max D disc of choice for me will probably always be up for debate since (a) I don't throw far, and (b) I don't have the need for the max D shot that often on the course. Always open to good suggestions though, and I appreciate the input.

Been playing around with a ton of molds lately. Feel pretty happy with what I've got going on right now, feel like I've settled into a good line-up.

166g OG Wiz - Putts
170g Gummy Evo Wiz - Drives and approach
167 FLX Buzz (Beat) - less stable buzz
177 FLX Buzz (Newish) - More stable buzz
168g QOLF - Go to driver
169 QOLF - Flippier QOLF, nice for easier S turns and tailwinds, or anhyzers that don't come back
173 Z Pred - Very OS even for a Pred, FH rollers, OH shots and strong headwind D
164 *SL - Rollers, probably getting replaced with a QOLS eventually
173 Z Nuke - Max D open shots

apprx distances I reach for these discs, obviously varies with conditions and shot lines.

Distance (around 425' of power on days that I'm throwing well, around 400' on bad days now)
175 Glow Champ Destroyer - headwind distance, long sweeping hyzers
170 AJ Star Destroyer - stable distance
169 SDS Destroyer - hyzer flips, tailwind driver

Fairway (250'-380'ish)
171 Z Pred - flat top, skip shots and strong headwind hyzers
174 Z Pred - primary overstable
173 Z Pred - beat, lost some of it's HSS so it is more workable
176 X Cyclone - main control driver, wearing into turnover driver
169 ESP Cyclone - probably get a heavier one for a little added wind resistance
175 S Rush - bomb turnovers, rollers

Midrange/All Purpose (200'-330')
180 DX Rancho Roc - new, overstable like a new roc should be
175 DX Rancho Roc - bottom stamp with a nice dome. good driving roc
177 DX Rancho Roc - stage 3 beat - hyzer flips to straight, flat throws hold a good turn.
174 Z Comet - straight and turnover shots that require finesse

Putters (0-225')
174 Cryztal Challenger - putter drives, hyzer approaches
172 D Challenger - main putter, wearing nicely
174 D Challenger - backup putter, needs a little more wear on it
175 Firm(?) Summit - turnover approaches. comet flight w/o all the glide.
