1st Bag

Postby sappman » Sat Mar 13, 2010 11:54 am

Looking to put together a solid bag. Have been playing for only about 6 months, rhbh and max out around 300ft.

Driver: Havnt carried or thrown for the past month

Fairway: Have been throwing the leo and dx tbird of the tee for the past month.
Champ Leopard (fresh)-
DX Tbird (fresh)
Star Tbird (New)

Midrange:
DX Roc- worn
DX ROc- New

Putter:
Classic Aviar (worn)-

I have a variety of drivers alreay, beast, wraith, Eagle, monarch, roadrunner

Just wondering what I'm missing and could use. Also if i should carry a Valk or beast around

dont change a thing.

the only thing you might want to do is starting picking up some backups (Tbirds, Leos, Aviars). Once you have the ones in your bag slightly broken in, then put it a new one and youve got 2 discs that you know how they feel and how they fly.

Do you mean faster? You can't get much slower then a leopard. I would wait a bit before adding a faster driver.

Looks pretty damn good. If your Star Teebird isn't handling headwinds good enough, add a 175g Star or Champ Firebird.

First of all, the Eagle is a fairway driver the same speed as the TeeChikn. Add it to your bag to see if it does "S" curve shots better for you than the Leo. When you think you're ready, the first long range driver I'd try is the Beast. The Monarch and Roadrunner overlap. I'd get rid of the Monarch and throw the Roadrunner.

Yea when i said slower i ment on the driver scale but i did say it weird. I got a pretty beat up champion beast i got from a buddy i could throw in, also i see everyone talking about carrying a firebird and was just wondering if it is that essential to have.

You could add a Firebird/Predator or some other overstable driver for shots that you want heavy fade (sharp dog legs) and to throw in heavy wind without getting thrown around. Sometimes you might not have the room to hyzer a shot around something. It's probably not an essential disc since I'm guessing the Teebird has a bit of fade, but they can be really useful for getting out of trouble, or tomahawk shots etc. I throw mine maybe 2-3 times a round; sometimes none. Most of the time it's a forehand heavy anhyzer to get a good S-curve when I'm in the trees on the side of a wooded hole.

if you cant find an 11x champion firebird, grab an opto xxx. both will do nicely for that slot.
