Gorilla's Tactics

Postby GorillaTactics » Tue Jun 17, 2008 6:20 pm

Hacking MORE molds out than ever.

Distance Drivers:
Star Orc 161 (tailwinds, hyzerflips)
Star Orc 167 ($$$$$)
Champ Orc 171 (recently lost :( but replacing soon-harder hyzer finish than 167)

Understable Distance Driver:
Star Roadrunner 168 (this was overlapping with my Beasts too much so I cut them out-this is more predictable with better glide anyway)

Stable Control Drivers:
Star TL 172
Glo TL 175

Overstable/Headwind/Sidearm Driver:
Champ Banshee 175

Mids:
Champ Roc 180
DX Roc 177 (x3 @ different wear stages)

Putters:
172 SS Wizard (x2, main putter)
172 Soft Wizard & 174 M Wizard (approaches, short drives)

May want to think about ditching the Banshee for a Firebird. Longer for side arm shots and better for thumbers. Star Whippet X is also a good thumber disc too.

I've thought about the firebird for overstable duties...I would put it in there in addition to the Banshees, as they're one of my fairway drivers I use constantly. firebird is much longer, banshees are like a teebird that fades harder.

I was considering a Max or XCal for the pig, as well. suggestions for everyone's favorite overstable disc are welcome.

I bought a Star Xcaliber for overstable duties, well it's kinda overstable but not enought imo, for me it flips in a mod headwind.

Earlier I used a Champ Banshee, but later on bought a Star Firebird. And so far, I like the Firebird more than my Banshee.

It's interesting to see that all your drivers and putters are 172 or less (except the Banshee) but you like max weight Rocs; why is that?

It also seems like you throw more understable stuff... have you thrown Leopards and Monarchs? If so, what did you think?

It's funny... with a name like Gorilla I would have expected all max weight overstables! :D

I guess I just feel like I have more control with a heavier midrange disc. I don't throw my mids as hard as my drivers, so I don't mind losing a bit of distance I might get with a lighter weight mid in favor of control and reliability in the wind.

Haven't thrown a Monarch yet, I like the roadrunner so I haven't bothered. I like Leopards, that Squall flies kinda like one with a bit more fade at the end. But really domey and glidey, which I like for its particular purpose. I throw my roommates leopard sometimes and like it, but I will have to buy my own or pry it from his cold dead fingers if I want to test it out more.

I'm gorilla sized but not gorilla armed yet, unfortunately. No max weight overstables for me (except that banshee, hoo boy). :lol:

I have found the Monarch to be understable with good glide but still has a good amount of fade at the very tail end of the throw. I like it...

Buh. Weather is not cooperating so I'm geeking out on here instead of playing actual disc golf. Any other comments/suggestions?

Yeah, I have one. Does the Xcaliber really flip in a headwind? I figured that thing is so beefy it would do alright.

I dunno, I don't own one. I've found that if a wind is too stiff for my champ Orc to fly reliably, then I'm probably throwing my Banshee and trying to place it instead of trying to crush it. I have heard multiple people say they have still gotten Xcals to flip over into crazy winds, but I didn't end up putting a super-fast overstable disc in my bag because I just can't get the intended flight out of it with my distance at this point.

I've got this slick orange one I'll trade you for yours :lol:

I had to talk myself out of blowing my wad on the MS $5 Wizard deal when I don't even really need any more Wizards.

LOL, that would be the definition of irony.
