solid bag. i might take out the gator for something a little more of a stable fairway like a firechicken can you roll the gator? that would be the only real hole i see is huge headwind with the pred fliping into it or just needing a get out to off trouble roller/thumber/grenade...u just might need something a little longer/versatile

how is the river working? a leopard is a great choice if that doesn't work for your game.

The gator will probably stay in the bag just because it is such a reliable disc for me. Overstable enough that I know it will go left but can still push it relatively far for a mid. I have also gotten used to the nice skip i usually get out of it and use that to gain a little more distance forward and left.

With the Pred flipping in the wind, I honestly have not encountered any winds strong enough to create that problem, How fast of winds were causing your Pred to flip, just out of curiosity?

And rollers is for sure a shot that i do not have much into right now besides the occasional extra shot every once and a while to see what i can get it to do. There just aren't to many open holes at the courses I play that are far enough that i would need to attempt a roller on to try and get within putting range.

So far I am liking the River just getting used to it still. I had one of my longer throws with it last week where i turned it over real high and pushed it out to about 380, just need to learn how to recreate that one.

Updated Bag:

(2) Soft Ions - Drives up to about 250, dead straight or slight anyhyzer and hyzer.
(1) GL Fuse - Drives up to about 320. Dead straight or anywhere from slight to heavy turnovers.
(2) Z BUzzz - Drives up to about 300 One new and still HSS, the other has a slight turn but has enough LSS to come back and finish straight.
Use for straight drives with slight to moderate left finishes.
(1) Star Gator - Overstable duties up to about 275
(2) Opto Rivers - One newer for straight drives up to 350ish, one seasoned for tailwinds and turnovers
(2) Z Preds - One newish, one with a little LSS beat out of it. Overstable duties up to about 330-340
(1) S PD - Straight drives that finish left. When i need something a little longer than the Pred or with not as much fade. Up to about 375.

One change might be dropping the Star Gator and adding a Prodiscus Jokeri, Ive got two premiums coming in to test out

Slight Changes.
Dropped Rivers and Buzzz's due to better results with other discs.
Decided to add an overstable putter, trying the Jokeri against the Rhyno over the next few rounds.

(2) Soft Ions
(1) Champ Rhyno/Premium Jokeri - Testing both side by side
(1) GL Fuse
(1) DX Roc
(1) DX Gazelle
(2) S PD's
(1) Z Pred
