Are you finding all your fairway duties covered with just the qjs and the exp's? I have started to experiment with the newer run exp1 for something that will do s shots. Kind of a neat disc for that.

The QJLS gets most of the work. The QPLS and Exp alternate based on the shot needed. I use the QPLS like a Teebird and the EXP like an EX/FB(can handle both type of flights)

So crazy enough I have found that Omega AP 1.11 is my favorite putter available to me. I can't trust using the old APs because they feel like they all are ready to crack the second it gets cold. The only side effect to the 1.11 is that it is really stiff, but it also feels about as large as a KC Aviar in the hand(which is what I used for the last year).

Omega AP 1.11 x2 putts and drives, these are super durable
Omega SS firm and grippy(2009 WB stamp)
CE Qmega

QMS x2 - orange opaque
SMS - stable
Q Sentinel x2 - one beat, one stable
Tachyon LF 3.1 - this was a random buy because it was $3 and pretty fresh. Surprisingly durable. driver but it takes midrange duties

QJLS x2 - both 177g
QPLS - fresh and stable
EXP 1.7 x2 - both newish, just like having 2

QOLS
SOLF 1.1 - hyzer flip/s-shots
QOLF 1.2 150g - thumbers, lower power shots
QOLF 1.1 - 1.1 mold, clear plastic. just pure $$$ OLF
Quasar x3 - one beefy, one straight, one flippy

Ok the first surprise was the Tachyon. I bought it just to mess around with and ended up enjoying it. Nice for easy forehands with minimal skip. 150g QOLF was just a natural fit the second I threw it. I can trust it on any type of thumber I need. My 171g flat Quasar got really flippy. I had originally bought it because it was super straight, like wraith straight. It Now that the lss has worn out, the lack of glide has shown. I can still smash the disc, but I can't use it in any kind of headwind. I smashed it out to 600ft today while doing a clinic at Disc Nation(tailwind). I picked up an Orange 172g that has more dome and a higher parting line. It isn't as stable as the 175gs, and since it isn't as flat as my 171g I expect it to not get flippy on me. I won't be happy if it turns out that I will need a new Quasar every month because the mold isn't durable.

My midrange game has also been different than I expected. The SMS is a lot like a the S-MD2, so it was nice to find a buzz/roc type disc in the Millennium lineup. I needed some stability from an easy to throw mid. The Sentinels are just so damn touchy with speed and still give me problems. I always end up over/under powering the Sentinels. Now that I have the SMS, the sentinels only come out for power hyzers or skip hyzers, and don't get thrown for flat shots

Omega AP 1.9
Omega AP 1.11 x2
CE Qmega

SMSx2
QMSx2
Q-Sentinel x2

QPLS x2
QJLS x2
EXP1 1.7

QOLS
QOLF 1.1
QOLF 1.2 150g - thumbers
SOLF 1.1
Xcal x2 - Millennium stamped
Quasar x2

Got some Xcals that filled the only glaring gap in my bag. I had used Xcals a lot prior to making the Millennium switch and was struggling without something like an Xcal or Max in the bag. The Quasar is nice, but I prefer the straight ones for distance. I don't like throwing a speed 13 mega stable disc because of the slip can happen from the rim size. The Xcal gives me a long distance overstable disc that is more comfortable in the hand

Been a while figured I would update. Got to add an old friend back to the bag(4x kenny)

Omega AP 1.9
Omega SS 1.30
Omega AP 1.11 x2
CE Qmega

QMS x3
4x Kenny Glow Roc
Q-Sentinel x2

QPLS - freshy stable
QJLS x2
EXP1 1.7

QOLS x2
QOLF
QOLF 150g thumber
SOLF 1.1
Xcal - Mill stamp
Quasar x2

Also have a couple Q-Astras coming my way. Hopefully these have the stability of a champ archon which I did like throwing until I lost it

Basically after I tanked the last round in my last tourney I discovered I can't get by with just the QMS and Sentinel. The Sentinel is very sensitive to speed and has huge skips. I still can't live without my Sentinels but I need something that falls between the Sentinel and QMS. I got the OK to add my 4x Roc back to the bag. I tried adding a KC Pro Aviar as well but after spending the last month with the AP 1.11s and CE Qmega, I found I don't need a KC anymore. I was relying a lot on the stability of the KC, and the Omega mold has taught me how to throw a much smoother and more accurate putter drive/upshot. I have full confidence inside 150ft that I can put my Omega AP 1.11 on any spot. The AP 1.11 plastic doesn't get any major dings or gouges and the plastic gets really nice and grippy as it gets worn in. It basically flies like a 7/10 BB Aviar and because of the plastics durability it doesn't seem to lose much stability. I have had KC/DX BBs get flippy faster because those plastics are more prone to chunking up.

ZJ,

Let me know what you think about the stock stamp CMD2. Could I get color/weight/amt. of dome on that one?

I'm doing research on my new stock of CMD2's. Any help would be appreciated.

It's 180g opaque yellow flat. It is nice and stable. I'm picking up a 174g dark yellow that is evenly dome and is more like the CFR in terms of opaqueness.

I've got some opaque yellows that are flat. They are quite a bit more stable than my 2010 usdgc ones. I think if you find some flat/moderately opaque pinks too, they are just a bit less stable, very straight after a bit of use.

I really like the CFR MD2. It's a qms that finishes left. The roc top stock MD2 is what I imagine a C-Aurora MF to be

my favorite 1.11 AP found a pond. its gone but I had a backup in the rotation ready to go. threw in a nice "appoved" Qmega. switched the 1.24 with the 1.30

Omega AP 1.9 putts
Omega AP 1.30 jump putts
CE Qmega - bar stamp
CE Qmega - appoved stamp, stiff blue plastic(not the gummy crap)
Omega AP 1.11

QMS x2 - one beat orange, one fresh CE
CMD2 CFR - basically a QMS 2.0, same top and new stingray bottom
CMD2 Stock stamp - nice stable and fresh. Keeps the QMS feels
Q-Sentinel x2 - one trashed for hyzer flips and flex. One fresh for spike/skip hyzers

QPLS - fresh and stable
QJLS x2 - one new, one turnover. both 177g red
EXP1 1.7 - Hyzer/headwind shiz

QOLS - turnover
QOLF 1.2 - clear SOLF stamp
QOLF 1.2 150g - thumber/utility shiz
Q-Astra - It dropped my fresh QOLS out(more D, similar lines)
SOLF 1.1 - go to long driver. flips
Xcal - Mill Stamp. go to headwind driver
Quasar x2 - One beat for 500+ tailwind drives. one stable for huge hyzers

The Q-Astra is a ton of fun. It has a produced a lot of "wow" shots from people when I throw a 400ft standstill lazer. The overstable MD2 might not stick around. I will probably just rock the Sentinels. The CFR MD2 is pretty much stuck in the bag now.
