My newish 175 legend is slightly overstable and won't turn without anny angle, seasoned up 1st run 175 icon is like a 2 year old roc in the perfect spot (good for anything), and I just put in a 168 legend to tryout for flippy stuff. Then much 2 suspects are for hyzers, flex, and wind

Only disc problem I have is getting discs back in putter pocket with the discs in bottom section.


I've been really eyeing this bag lately. So how difficult is it to pull out the bottom drivers in the flaps? Not the ones underneath- although I'm having a hard time visualizing where that is exactly too. Like you I have a putter/mid heavy set up, not sure how well it would work for me.

I moved the 2 underneath (its a big pocket kinda like the very bottom of a simian) to the main compartment. They are surprisingly easy to get in and out. When getting them in, you kind of have to half way take out another disc and put them both in at the same time. (hard to explain unless you can see what I'm talking about. I put 3 putters in the very top divider, then 3 Mids in the next one, then 2 Mids and a putter in the front pocket

What happened to the pinnacle ghosts?

I like the couple rounds I've played with the gauge btw. I've got a couple I'll be trying out over the next month. They seem to have sharp flashing on the nose though.

Between my suspects and Gauges, it rarely got thrown. It may go back in at some point. The biggest thing is it doesn't handle a headwind as good as a suspect and I get similar lines in no wind with the suspect.

That's how my Comets are. Both ESP and Z plastic are heavy,ESP is straight and the Z is slightly overstable. Them my Elite X is light and is very flippy. Very easy for dogleg rights.

So I understand the set-up you got going there man. You know I've been throwing these Fuse's for a bit now and I feel it's time for the Comets to go back in the bag again and the Fuse's to come out. :D

Love the bag man,That set-up you have will cover anything that gets thrown at you. I'm still trying to dial mine in.

A few years back, I used Comets as my only mid. This is a similar deal with the Gauges, but I can lay on them more. Not as finess-y of a disc.

Sounds like a pretty good disc. When I seen how much you liked them I did a bit of research on them,you know because I never really heard about them until now. I almost picked up one too. I may revisit that thought later though.

The Gauge is the most impressive new mid I've thrown in a long time. It crushes a Mako 3. The Gauge is dead straight(start to finish), decent in the wind, and it can take a lot of power...and under power, it's, uhh, dead straight start to finish. Before I bought a couple first run Gauges, I watched the promo video of Rico hyzer-flipping the Gauge on a beeline to the basket 350 ft away.

Ha.

I'm thinking of putting a suspect in my bag too. That's an overstable short midrange right?

I haven't thrown the escape much, but how similar is it to the PD?
