Critique My Bag (UPDATED)

Postby trentk » Sun Aug 10, 2008 1:57 am

***any comment/help is greatly appreciated***

I'm almost done building my minimalist bag, so I was wondering, are there any holes that need to be filled with more discs?

I'm new to disc golf, so I'm staying away from distance drivers for now. However, when I do get distance drivers, I'm thinking about carrying 3 starfires (1 new/overstable, 1 worn/straight, 1 beat/understable)

Why don't I have a "very overstable driver"? At my home course (De Laveaga) I haven't found a hole where I think a driver more overstable than my new teebird would benefit my game. In fact, why does a "very overstable driver" help? (I'm just wondering)

1. Stable Control Drivers
DX Teebird (worn to straight)

2. Distance Drivers
(none)

3. Understable Driver
DX Teebird (beat to understable)

4. Moderately Overstable Driver
DX Teebird (new & overstable)

5. Very Overstable Driver
(none)

Mids:
KC Roc (new & overstable)
DX Roc (worn to straight)
DX Roc (beat to understable)

Putters:
S Wizard (new & overstable)
S Wizard (worn to straight)
S Wizard (beat to understable)

Your bag looks pretty solid to me. I use my Firebirds (the very overstable slot) in strong headwinds, forehand shots, overhead shots, skip shots, and <370' hyzer shots. Once your form gets to a point that you can get pigs to fly straight when you want to, they're $$$. Supreme predictability in any wind.

That looks like an all business bag to me. I'd add in a z predator for shots where you need extreme left or extreme right fade (forehand) or a big flex around a tree, and headwinds over 15 mph.

I'm throwing about '315 with my Teebirds now, so I decided that I'm ready for a distance driver. Are the starfire's a good option, or do you recommend something else? I threw with my new starfire today at field practice, and it added about 30-35 feet of D (estimated)

Also, should I use a new starfire for a very overstable driver, or should I use something else? would it be a good idea to get a predator to fill that slot?

1. Stable Control Drivers
DX Teebird (worn to straight)

2. Distance Drivers
DX Starfire (new/overstable)
*DX Starfire (worn/straight)
*DX Starfire (beat/understable)
*I only have a new starfire at the moment, but I am planning on carrying the setup above.

3. Understable Driver
DX Teebird (beat to understable)

4. Moderately Overstable Driver
DX Teebird (new & overstable)

5. Very Overstable Driver
(none yet)
Will my new starfire work, or should I get something else?

at 315' of D the champ or star starfire would probably fill the overstable slot very well. I would make sure to get one over 170g.

I'm throwing around 345-50 with my starfire, so... would it still work for the overstable slot? Thanks for the help!
