Getting There but has a huge hole

Postby frennis524 » Sun Aug 17, 2008 11:45 pm

Stable Control Driver
170 Star Eagle (newish)

Understable
170 Star Eagle (Beatish)

Midrange
180 KC Pro Roc (newish)
180 Dx Roc (Used, but I want to beat in a KC)

Putter
I have used Avair, but it hits my fingers and goes astray a lot and I don't like the grip....I really want a shallower maybe faster putter....I know a Dx Shark isn't a putter but what do you guys think

Distance Driver
The courses I have played only need the Eagle which I can put up 380 consistently and 400 often, but I was wondering what I should Stick in

Overstable
172 Star Monster

Thanks

Actually looks like a pretty good, basic bag. What shots do you feel like you're missing with that selection of discs? If you have a used Roc it will fly similar to your Shark, but more awesome. :D

Which Aviar do you have? Does it have a big bead on the bottom? You could try a beadless putter like the Warlock or something. Just pick a bunch up and go with what feels good in your hand. There are a lot of great putters out there and one will be comfortable for you.

If you want a shallower maybe faster putter then Spike from Latitude 64 is the right way to go :wink:

...and if you want a shallower beaded putter, Wizard would be a good weapon of choice.

I think it will really limit how good of a putter you can be. If you already can put really well with a normal putter and choose to use a mid then it's OK. If you are forced to use a mid to be able to putt well then you're better off learning to use a putter.

If you don't have any preference for a moderatly overstable driver and distance driver and want to stick to minimalism then I'd suggest finding a disc that will work for both if used in different beatnesses and/or different plastics. The OLF, Avenger and Starfire-x all seem to fit this criteria.

This is my bag almost exactly, except that I throw Preds instead of Monsters. I also have a couple other driver molds in there, but a pair of Star Eagles are the core. Since we seem to like the same discs, I can safely say that you should save yourself the trouble of auditioning other putters and just go directly to Wizards in either Soft and Medium or just Mediums.

The Orion LF kind of flies like a faster Eagle, except maybe with a bit more high speed turn.... you might like it for a distance driver (I love throwing mine).

If you want a low-profile putter I would go for something smaller in diameter like an XD or Classic Roc. However a deeper putter will give you better results in the long run though. Have you tried a Banger GT? the groove top kind of gives it the feel of a low profile putter, it might work for you.
