Also after a very frustrating past year filled with injuries, I have gotten my distance back finally. I have thrown the destroyers 460 in the past week and parked a 435 foot hole on a golf line with a destroyer so that felt good. Still working on approaches, putting, and just finesse shots in general. Hope to get back to playing 990 golf consistently again like I did the 5 tournaments before I messed up my back.

God damn I hate myself. Sold everything off and now I tried a few latitude and affiliate discs and I am itching to try them all. Really liking the increased glide that they have compared to a lot of other companies. Can any of you help me out with the creating of a latitude/westside/dd bag to save me a little money? I know that I will be using the mercy as my putter and that I will have giants in there, but the rest is really open for suggestions. I already have a couple saints on the way, but I am completely oblivious to all of their mids and I need something that goes far to compliment my giants. I was thinking of trying the trespass maybe. Help?

No DD experience so far but the Cores vary and so do many others and the Warship id long and good for understable. Rivers are like more HSS Leos with longer legs and Saints are closer to Eagles. Some Strikers are probably good but again variance... Halos are probably long and HSS enough for you for D. They do have longer but less predictable discs like VIP tall dome high PLH Kings (others are rollers like the Bolts). Spike is very understable but nice in putting if you have short fingers and Sinuses are great overstable putters especially for drives. Swan 2 is very Omega SS like. Unfortunately i have not encountered any discs any other disc that would cut through the chains as much as those do when it is below freezing. Black ones are tackier than others and pretty good in that aspect. I picked up the most overstable kind of light Northmen so my experiences vary some but i do have a max weight VIP too. Not bad as a driver at all.At your power i'd stay at 170 and above.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Well after trying a lot of Latitude/westside/DD I have learned that I like the mercy, the saint, and the giant. I an undecided on the trespass still, but the mids were unimpressive, the striker was inconsistent, the havoc and bolt could only be thrown in a tailwind, the trident was just weird, and I have too many firebirds to throw the XXX. I think I am putting rocs back in, I want to see what the stag does, but I think I am going to use the Stag/Saint combo, and go with giants and destroyers or maybe cannons. Is rocs to saints to big of a gap?

TLDR
Mercys
Rocs
Saints
Stags
Either the cannon, trespass, or destroyer
Giants

The Stag was described as a Stratus like disc by the owner of the company.

Yep. I have not thrown it but have held a sample in the Finnish season opener and it was a prototype.

It has a softer and tackier blend than older VIP molds so it's tackier for less gripping power need and it might very well fly 0 HSS for what i know at newb power. It probably is geared toward new players because when the owner of Westside was a disc seller he sold Strati for beginning players for straight shots. And Omega SSs as putters more than anything else and it was the best selling putter in Finland for years so no wonder that Swans are not far off of Omega SSs.

Stag looks like a Teebird.

It better not fly like a stratus. It looks like it has the numbers of a tsunami. It better not flip on me.

I think JR meant:

Stratus = Tursas (new westside understable mid)

I'd recommend a Boatman for longer eagle, more stable less glidy wraith type flight. Greg Barsby filcks them well. VIP plastic for bigger wind days but a max Tournament shouldn't turn without a headwind.
Magic / Judge / PA2 - Tursas / QMS / Buzzz / Mace - QJ / E / F - Renegade / O / D1

Not having thrown a Stag i can only go with what the owner of Westside told me. Isn't the Stag speed 5? In Latitude driver world the speed is one number higher than the same wing width with Innova so i can not see how the Stag would compare to a Teebird numbers wise. Those pictures of the Stag flight vs Stratus have 50' distance difference between those two. i have a hard time believing that. The Stratus is super flippy but it can go far for a mid if it flips to flat. That needs almost vertical initial angle for power throws. I have not heard from anyone about how the Stag flies.

Oops i meant the Tursas is the Stratus like mid according to the owner of Westside Discs. The Stag seemed like a 1 mm wider winged Eagle from the wing profile and the dome height.

While the stag isn't the disc you thought it was I still heard it has some turn in it if you throw it hard which is still not what I was hoping for. Probably just sticking with teebirds.
