Just revised my bag again.

Distance drivers:
173g Champ Boss
165g Star Wraith (new)
168g Champ Wraith (seasoned)

Fairway drivers:
169g Elite-Z Predator
169g Champ Teebird
174g Star TL

Midranges
179g 11x KC Roc (new)
171g 12x KC Roc (moneeeey)
176g 11x KC Roc (turnover)

Putters
175g Medium Wizard (off the tee)
175g Glow Aviar P&A (beadless, beat)
168g DX Aviar (beadless, super-flippy-beat)


Missing understable drivers. The seasoned Wraith so far does wonders for holding anny lines but does not turn over on its own. May replace with a seasoned Valkyrie. Hope that TL beats into something understable quick as well.

Simplified my set up, even bought a smaller bag to limit myself. I am just sticking with my 'tried and true' discs here, although i will be keeping a z-predator in my trunk for those really windy days.

each category is sorted by stability:

Drivers (all 170g+):
Pro Monster
QOLF 1.2
SOLF 1.1
DX Teebird
DX Valkyrie

Mids (all 170g-180g):
Z-Wasp
Z-Buzzz
D-Buzzz

Approach:
Organic Wizard -174g new
Soft Wizard - 174g beat up

Putter:
Proto Wizard 168g

Drivers
Star Destroyer 169g broken in
Star Wraith 175g Broken in
Pro Valkyrie 173g New for hyzer flip shots
Star TeeRex 169g new

Fairway Drivers
Star TL 175g newish

Midrange
Star Cro 175g newish

Putters
Glow Warlock 172g off the tee and approach
Evo Warlock 174g main putter
Evo Wizard 173g putt....tee...approach

I can hear people out there talking about my lack of mids.....I just traded my rocs because they did not work for me....I have a element and an element x coming to try out. I like the cro, it works well for my game. I use my glow warlock and evo wizard as mids a lot....if I am withing 275' I am throwing my putter...the control with a putter is unmatched for me.

Drivers

168g Red Assassin (Main Driver)
172g Red Assassin (Back Up)
174g Yellow Assassin (Turn Over)
150g OG Illusion (HeadWind-Overstable Driver-Thumber/Tomahawk)

Mids

2 x 178g S Element X (1 new, 1 getting beat)
180g OG Element
182g S Element (Beat turns over well, hoping it will because a roller)

Putters

171g SS Warlock (Main Putter)
172g SSS Warlock (Back Up-Anything 100ft and in)
175g OG Wizard (Wind Putting)
168g SS Wizard (Anything Mostly Open and <250ft)

Down to 6 molds. Trying to figure out if I can live without the Wizard and auditioning the Voodoo will only complicate matters unless it replaces them both which it may just.

I know right? The Illusion is horribly overstable for me so I tried a lighter one and was able to work with it a lot more. I needed something to supplement my Assassins as they are crap in a head wind and I couldn't be more happy with the 150g Ill. Even in no wind the 150g Ill is a bit overstable for me. I can get it to the same distance as my drivers but I just have to S it or really crank a hyzer because I yet lack the arm to toss it like the big boys.

If it's working go with it. When I think of 150 and headwind I just visualize the disc flipping right over or bouncing all over the place

Playing one year....way too much fast stuff in your bag
Get rid of the Boss, destroyer, wraith, spectra, beast, ss, stingray shark, ace race
What I would do:
Overstable: firebird
Understable: leopards
Max D: Valkerie
Stable: Get a teebird
Mid Range: Rocs at various stages of wear
Putter: Wiz

Thanks for the tip - I'll set those faster discs aside for awhile.
