except for the magic, this is the bag i've had since mid-summer. nice and simple works great for me. for a really windy day i'll add a 170 solf, and maybe swap out one of the rocs for a heavier one. for rain i've been swapping the s wiz for an ss. the magic is new to the bag and i'm really liking it. nice for straight shots but also touch annies.

Putters:
175 glow wizard: most putts, drives/upshots in the wind
168 s wizard: long putts, drives, upshots
174 sss magic: upshots

Mids:
172 dx rancho roc, newish
172 dx rancho roc, broken-in
172 dx rancho roc, beat

1. Stable Control Drivers
168 dx eagle-x, newish
168 dx eagle-x, broken-in
168 dx eagle-x, beat

2. Distance Drivers
one of the eagles

3. Understable Driver
the beat eagle

4. Moderately Overstable Driver
the newish eagle

5. Very Overstable Driver
172 z predator

That looks very sound. Good bag.

You may want to consider something faster for that slot to complement the Teebird. The Teebird doesn't penetrate all that well in the wind, hold hyzers all that well or recover from being turned over as well as some other discs. You could try a SOLF for that spot without adding a mold.

Otherwise it looks like a textbook DGR inspired bag.

i can see that. there's a lss gap between the champ tb and the pred. also there's a lot of overlap between the beat eagle and the dx teebird as they both can fly straight and land flat, so i may just drop the dx tb and call the 11x a slot 1 driver.

i've been messing with a 170 solf a little but so far haven't been able to get a real full flight out of it -- but i think the potential is there as i've been improving my throw a lot lately. last night on the practice field i got a sweet pull on the champ tb and it went 340', a good 50' farther than i've ever thrown that disc. :shock:

i'd be worried that the orion's touch of high-speed turn would make it more likely than the champ tb to flip in a strong headwind, or a big downhill + headwind. is this not an actual problem?

i also have a 160 molf to compliment the 150 in slot #2 after i get some more experience with it.

While the Orion might be more likely to turn in a headwind (I don't have a ton of experience with either) it's also quite a bit more likely to recover from a bit of turn than a Teebird. It will also go farther.

As for your Eagle, TB question:

The Eagle serves the same purpose as the Gazelle in that explanation.

yeah actually i have a gazelle that can fly straight and land flat too. both the eagle and gazelle are at the level of beatness where with the right throw they can act pretty much like a beat dx teebird, while at the same time being way more versatile.

i think that's why the dx teebird has been in and out of my bag so much whereas the 11x hasn't left since i got it. the dx rarely got thrown unless i was experimenting since i've always had a versatile driver that could a similar line while generally being more forgiving. but the champ teebird is so steadfast that it's worth having for those regular old golf shots that need to reliably go straight and finish left with nothing tricky happening.

Simple and effective. Well done.
