It used to be my rescue and approach disc, along with a wolf, but I started using the polaris and ditched them in favor of more drivers. I will dig it out and see how it drives. I don't even recall ever throwing it full out. I have no idea how far it will go for me.

ihasadisc wrote:That will give me:
dx ranchero roc
dx leopard 165
dx teebird 165
dx valkyrie 150
What else should I have in my bag? The river? I'm tempted to keep using the pro wraith because it is the only disc I have that goes 280 consistently and it handles wind well, but I do have trouble controlling it, especially if calm wind. I also have a fear of being without my star valk 175, since I can usually make it go where I want, it makes a good hyzer disc, and it handles wind fairly well. What should I use for a roller? The dx valk?

I take it I can turn to the Banshee for the downhill shots and the DX Teebird for anhyzering uphill and over the top shots now?

ihasadisc wrote:The 154 Valk has a really flat top. It actually looks kind of concave. It was my first driver about 6 years ago. Somebody told me they changed the Valk mold, and the new ones have more of a dome, so I might find the old valk flies more like a sidewinder. Is there anything to that?
ihasadisc wrote:So I think my bag at this point is shaping up to be:
Soft Magnet (putt and approach)
180 DX Rancho Roc (stable midrange driver and downhills)
??? Comet or Fuse (understable midrange driver and uphills)
165 DX Banshee (fairway/midrange hyzers, fairway/midrange wind driver, shorter overheads, forehand rollers)
165 DX Leopard (understable fairway driver, uphills, longer overheads)
165 DX Teebird (stable fairway driver)
165 Opto River (calm weather distance disc)
154 Champ Valkyrie (understable distance driver, roller)
ihasadisc wrote:I took the star teebird out under the assumption that the banshee can be the fairway wind driver. Does that work?
ihasadisc wrote:Is the Opto River basically overlapping with the DX Leopard, or it it much longer distance driver?
ihasadisc wrote:I think the main question is, what weight should I consider for the Roc, and Comet/Fuse? Also, what kind of plastic should I get in the Comet (Elite X? Elite Z?) or Fuse (Gold? Opto?)?
So, have I given you enough excuses to buy new plastic?
