Discraft country. :D

Bag looks good. A friend of mine still swears by APX swirls.

150 Avenger. Tailwind bombs?

Actually I'm sort of experimenting with the 150 Avenger. I use the Rogue for tailwinds until the understable Surge beats in some more. I honestly think a 150 avenger, despite being a little faster than my tracker, makes a decent control driver.

I'm not the biggest fan of the swirl APX. I like it well enough, it's just...an APX. It's pretty, but it discolors and flakes/blisters apart. It's difference in flight is negligible really, it flies like a beat APX...which I have :)

More changes...slimmer in molds/plastics, but more of my most used discs (APX and Comet). Been using the APX a lot for short (<260') drives. The banger and wasp are essentially just in there for wind duty now.

out of curiosity...
when do you use a Buzzz instead of a Comet?

A lot of that depends on the wind conditions and how I'm feeling that day. I PREFER to use a Comet for everything, but for hyzer shots that don't have a lot of height and shots into a wind it's not always the best thing to pull out of the bag.

I also use Buzzzes for when I need a long anny shot that I need to tuck around something and fade back a bit.

Primarily though, unless I know I'm WAY more consistent on a particular hole with the Buzzz, I only pull them out when the wind would keep a Comet from flying as straight as I'd like, or when I really have to push the distance on it and don't want to pull out the XL...
