I like your Teerex style. That's how I roll.

I recently made the eco xcal my go to overstable driver, especially max distance in a headwind.

max weight destroyer isn't really necessary with a teerex, though it does knife into the ground and not skip more often. Same with the force, which would overlap with an xcal, destroyer, max, and teerex. I don't throw the valk but I see it alot in place of the wraith so I assume its good for tailwind and max D.

I usually throw max weight, but I bought a champ destroyer last week for bombs, so I got it in 167. Lighter weight might serve you better for a disc that you don't use to fight winds, and you need every bit of glide for max distance. The one I got has a pretty huge dome too. I just usually throw a pro wraith for tailwind and max D. Valk sounds nice though I have one laying around I could try, I've found 2 but they were 149 and 150.

definitely should try out a valk around 172, its awesome in the sense you can do what you want with it, plus you can get some great disctance with a tailwind. I was thinking aobut lighter weight destroyer but i just dont like anything below 172 never have really.

Also, you should definitely look into valks the are an awesome utility disc. Fo me Its almost as long as a wraith but what little it lacks in distance it makes up for in consistency and accuracy.


How does 475' hyzers and Valk = Consistent occur in the same post :shock:

haha only because they are two different discs, with the valk im very consistent with what I want and on a open enought hole I can BOMB the champ Destroyer which has become a new love. I used to have a star destroyer and hated, so much so I swore off all destroyers until my buddy told me to try the champ because it fixed the flippy/consistency problem. He was right this disc kills, so now im just working on getting a very consistent low "S" shot out of it like my teerex.

I gotcha, you treat that Valk like a wife, and the Destroyer like the girl next door :)

Pick One (Mod Overstable/Max D Slot):
TeeRex
Destroyer

(I'm gonna guess you'll go w/ the trx.)

Pick one (Understable Driver slot):
Rouge
Valkarie

Pick one (Very overstable driver slot):
Max
Firebird

Too many mids. Pick one mold and have different plastics/stages of wear for the different shots. For you, a FLX/Z/D Buzzz will cover pretty much everything, with a nice overstable compliment in the FLX Drone.

So if it was me, here's what I'd throw in your bag:

TeeRex
TeeRex X
Firebird
Valkarie
Teebird

Buzzz (one flx, one D or beat Z, one new Z)
FLX Drone

Soft Challenger
another challenger for short drives (idk if this is what the FLX is for)

very cool breakdown of my bag. Its funny however because I was looking at it last night and your final bag is exactly what I came up with. And yes my FLX Challenger is for short drives. The only thing I would add/keep is my Max nothing performs better in a headwind, which is needed in Round Rock, TX

ok so I know ive been making changes a lot recently, but minus 2 discs (Reaper/Force) I believe my bag is pretty much set for the year. I might tweak a change here or there based on some others opinions but I think I found my bag.

Thanks for any reviews / suggestions
