mah bag

Postby Pwingles » Sat Sep 18, 2010 6:08 pm

Hasnt changed much, did just trade my Disccarrier for a Kong (upgrade w00t)

175 SS Wiz beat
174 SS Wiz new These handle my putting and shorter drive/approach duties

174 reg X Link VP Not sure how long this will be in the bag, pretty much only use it on windier days for short approaches.

177 DX Rancho stable
180 KC Pro straight
180 DX Rancho perfectly worn

175 xXx utility/overhand/wind/short forehand approaches
3x 175 Champ TeeBirds 1 new, 1 straighter and slightly less stable then new one, one beat, great for anny's and hyzer flips
1 172 DX TB Rollers, anny's, wet weather, beat to hell

2x Z Force both new just replaced an older one, and sold my other, wind primarily, big hyzers, also throw some LHBH shots, and i use this disc for that a lot, the stability helps with not punishing me for my form as its not as good as the RHBH
1x 170 ESP Nuke fairly stable for that plastic and that disc, max D, big hyzers
2x Z Nuke 168, flippy, long annys open field D, other is 174, more stable D


Thinking of trying a River just for fun but I dont see a slot in my bag for it really, my 2 beat TB's do about everything that disc is advertised to do. Any suggestions? things to add, subtract? Any shots i cannot cover here?

VP is out, permanently
TB's are out for a PD and River trial run

Bag looks like this now

170 esp Nuke- pretty stable for a nuke of this weight
173 Z Nuke
168 Z nuke - flippy

x3 173 Z force

2 are new and im really only going to be carrying one of the new ones
other one is older, a little more workable, even in the wind still

1 Opto xXx- utility, overhands, wind etc

1 175 P PD
1 172 S PD
1 175 GL River

3 DX Ranchos 1 beat, 1 stable, 1 new (i occasionally have a star sanny also)
1 KC Pro Roc beat
all are 177-180

2 174-5 SS Wiz

Adding a 175 SS magic for a short time, until a 163 wiz gets here for longer/tailwind putts and short anny approaches

I'm assuming you meant esp nuke.

Your bag looks really similar to mine right now. Different putter, different distance disc, but same idea. The pd/river combo is money. Although both discs are versatile enough that you'll have a tough time deciding which one you want to throw for those tweeners. 8)

The biggest gap I have right now is between the opto xxx and my most stable pd, which isn't quite as stable as I would like. I'm keeping a well seasoned z pred handy until I get my goldline xxx and c pd in. I'm thinking these will bridge that gap perfectly.

yes i did mean Nuke lol, its more HSS then my 173 Z nuke and glides better too, and grippier so it gets called upon more often thus far then the heavier z

Got some wiz's in a trade today, 3 to be exact

170 ESP Nuke nice and stable, grippy too
169 Z Nuke flippy, nice for tailwind D
173 Z Nuke stable enough for forehand D, still trying to figure out if i need this or not

2x 173-4 Z Force 1 new, 1 less stable but still stable, used when i need it to go a little farther or maybe flex it a bit before going left
also used for LHBH shots, sidearm skips and wind, occasionally shorter thumbers

xXx- utility, overhands, skips etc

P-PD 175 flat, flippier, doesnt require a lot of power to straighten out, will hold a flat anny nicely as well
S-PD 172, slightly domey, handles power well, great disc all around

175 Opto River breaking it in, gets a decent flight, not super workable yet
175 GL RIver way too stable for what a river is supposed to be, trying to beat it in

Roc's- Usaually all DX, occasionally a kc or a star, but almost always have at least 3 usually 4-5

163 "soft" wiz, very firm tho, tailwind and anny putts
174 "soft" wiz also firm, approach and some drives when rolling away isnt a worry
174 SS wiz, gummier, still firm"ish" because its new, some drives, approaches, not putting with it a ton yet, 1 of 2 im switching them out each round so as to keep them similar in condition, in case i lose one
175 SS wiz, one of 3 of same color and condition and run all fairly beat, main putter, practice with all 3 so they all feel the familiar and sexy

Trying some new molds out. Not in the bag for sure yet, but so far im liking them.

2-3 nukes Alternating 3 ESP nukes and 2 Z nukes depending on the course, usual setup is;
169 Z nuke, tailwinds and hyzerflip drives
170 ESP Nuke super stable for this disc/weight

2 Z Forces one new and super stable, one used a little straighter, used for big spike hyzers, headwind, sidearm or lefty shots and skips

xXx- have 3 usually only carry one, utility, overhand shots, etc etc

PD's- one 172 S, and a 175 P, pretty much hate the P, its flat and flippy and stupid :(, S is dialed tho and i love it.

Rivers- 2, 175, one opto one GL, long anny's, tunnel shots

Roc's- Have a rotation of 5-6 Ranchos, and 2-3 Sannies a champ rancho and a star sannie just whatever im feeling that day usually carry 2-4 of them

Fuse- GL 175, trying this out, aced with my worn roc, tried a mako instead, dont think it will quite work so far liking the fuse more, its like a comet that can handle a little more power.

ION- Checking this out to see what all the fuss is about, so far its alright, only had a few rounds with it, also its a Medium and the Soft felt like it might have been a better choice for putting duties, but the M is doing ok for approach and short drives

2 SS Wiz's- one newish for stable approach and short drives, one beat to crap and folded up a bunch to have thumb imprints thats real floppy

Tourney this saturday, gonna be a big course with a lot of wooded holes and some long open ones. Think ima roll with this, also it may be raining and it will most likely be cold for the AM round.

Drivers:
170 esp nuke lost my stable one, this one is relatively flippier
174 Star Boss, got it to handle a little more wind than the nuke, but for a boss its sort of weak

2 Z force, one pretty new and overstable for heavy wind, skips, short thumbers, other is more beat in, and a little longer

1x XXX cuz its badass

4 PD's
2x 172 S PDs 1 new, a few months old
1 175 C PD (not sure if i need this AND the forces, we'll see)
1 P PD 175 flippy, hyzerflip turnovers, long rollers, tunnel shots, big annys

1 or 2 Rivers, hyzerflip, long annys, tunnel shots

3-5 Rocs, getting some special blend rocs mebe throw those in, and ill have KC Pro thats pretty stable along with 2-3 DX in different stages

GL Fuse, anything needing a flat throw and finishing right or touch shots in a tight space since they require less power to go straight then a roc

2-3 Wizards, 2 pretty firm Softs one heavy one light, and a heavy SS thats real tacky
1 main putter for most occasions and approach mainly with SS, tailwind putts with the light one

its getting cold so the bag is getting slimmed down, taking some premium plastic stuff out due to grip issues in the cold. Potentially going to add a couple molds to try out.

Star Boss, 174 a different one than before, significantly more overstable than before
Esp Nuke, 170 flippy when not thrown super well, tailwinds and no wind D

x2 Z Force 174 and 172 new and beat (may replace with a FLX pred/Z pred combo)

x2 S-PD red champy, Yellow opaque both 172

x2 Rivers right now (replacing with Pro Leo's for winter i think)

xXx (may come out if i purchase Pred combo due to obv overlap)

KC Pro rocs coming out for the winter, dont want them to explode

3x Dx Ranchos all 180, right left and straight

1x Super Roc asia open 180. super grippy when not wet, disapointingly slippery when a little wet

Fuse out due to grip issues with GL in the wet/cold

1x SS magic anny everything, longgggg putts
1x SS wiz approaches when it needs to stick (may replace with an even floppier wiz or soft VP)
2x Soft Wiz that are very firm, KC ish 1 main putter, 1 driving putter 172
1x SS newer than approach wiz, interchanged with main putter when more grip is needed so itll see a lot of action in the cold

it is overstable yes, but its HSS is less than that of my Z also new and of the same weight. I assumed it would be, but i have heard stories of the Z drone being less overstable than the FLX which confuses me, but ive heard it more than once. It works nicely in the cold, in the warmer weather i think itll get left out of the bag in place of the Z. Its LSS is similar but also a tick less, and has a bit more glide than the Z
