What do you think overlaps the most in this bag? I do have a feeling I will drop my Valkyries for Beasts at some point. Similar, but faster.


The overlap is minimal and not a problem at all. The bag looks good.

Overstable Distance
1 172 Star Firebird (sick over stable)
1 173? DX Firebird (beat)

Understable Distance
1 - 170 DX Valkyrie (newish)
1 - 172 Champion Valkyrie(new)

Stable Fairway
1 DX Teebird (Not used much)
1 172 Star Teebird(Main Driver for 325', turns just a a bit and fades predictably)
1 171 11x Champion Teebird(Headwind Driver)

Under/Stable Fairway
1 - 173 Star Leopard(low ceilings, main disc for shots in the 300' area)
1 - 173 DX Leopard(Upped the weight, long glidey anyhzers,)

Mid-Range
1 - 167 KC Pro Roc(Easy to turn, anhyzers, tight S lines)
1 - 180 KC Pro Roc(Not thrown too much of late)
1 - 180 DX Rancho Roc (Fairly Over stable)
1 - 174 Star Ontario Roc (Really straight, very little fade)
1 - 180 DX Ontario Roc (Somewhere inbetween the Ontario and the Rancho)
1 - 173 DX Viper Utility disk (Headwinds, long hyzers, skippers, may be bumped as I can do simlar things with the 180 DX Rancho)

Putt and Approach
1 - 175 DX Aviar P&A (Bulk of the putty duties, more grippy and will throw for drives / approachs if "skipping" is undesirable)
1 - 180 KC Pro Aviar (Headwind driver, hyzers, and drives up to 225)

I have played 10 rounds with this bag and have added my notes. I have not thrown the Valkries or the Firebirds yet. The main long course around here is still flooded so we have been playing shorter more technical courses lately. I did throw a buddies 173 Champ Wraith about 365' and parked it within 25' for the basket. What an awesome feeling :) I have a feeling the valkries won't stick around and will be replaced with wraiths or destroyers. As for the Firebirds, I just don't know. Maybe one day it will be really windy and I will appreciate them, same thing with the viper???

I am starting to see and hit more lines. Before I think I would just guess and usually it was wrong. This alone has knocked quite a few strokes off my game. My putting is now the weakest part of my game. I missed 12 birdie putts within 30' today :(

If I am going to start using wraiths for max distance maybe it makes more sense to aquire some beat wraiths for long turn over shots.

Maybe people I am talking to are full of it, but I hear a lot of people using beat pro wraiths for longer turnover shots to reduce molds in their bag. Feel free to tell me if this is horribly inaccurate?

No, what they're telling you is true (especially in Pro plastic, it beats to flippy real nice!)

I was just having a Bevis & Butthead moment, that's all. :wink: :D

What is the beat DX Firebird for? Also, what are the beat Teebirds doing that the leopards aren't? It just seems like you could get away with carrying less discs.

Nothing wrong with learning discs and shots and what not. A person doesn't have to carry less discs and he really isn't carrying a ton of discs.

If I had more varying degrees of beat in teebirds I would almost be willing to get rid of the leopards. I can throw huge anhyzers without worry about the disc coming back. The leopards are not beat in enough to fill this requirement.

Actually, I believe this is exactly what I am going to do. As soon as I can beat in or acquire some, I will probably drop the leopards.

If it was me, I'd drop the Vipers and put in Firechikns.

They can do everything the Viper does, and go a bit further.
