Help Me Decide What's In and What's Out!

Postby mattshustack » Sun Oct 05, 2008 6:24 pm

Alright, so I just found and bought some new plastic, and I'm not throwing some of the stuff in my bag right now, so I need some help figuring out what to put in and what to drop. My bag only holds 13 (14 if I try hard) so keep that in mind. A couple details about my playing style are that I prefer to throw understable discs and flip them for distance rather than just throw a flat shot with a fast disc, also, I throw around 360-390'. Here's what I have:

Overstable Drivers
New 167 Star Firebird: This one is definitely staying
New 167 Star Firebird-L: Slightly overstable, don't use it on my home course a lot
Pro Line (old Champion) Monster: Used only for overheads, which I don't throw very often
New 175 Star Destroyer: I don't think I need this in my bag

Stable Drivers
174 Star Wraith: Great for general stable shots
169 Star Wraith: Haven't thrown it yet
Beat 170 Star Destroyer: Flippy and inconsistent, probably dropping this
Slightly Beat Starfire-L: A good general stable disc
168 Star Eagle-X: Slightly inconsistent, but I love the way it flys
171 Champion Teebird: A little more stable and consistent than the Eagle
Champion Orc: Just started using it and I really like it
New 168 DX Orc: Haven't thrown it, don't really have much use for it

Understable Drivers
168 Star Valkyrie: Main distance driver
171 Champion Valkyrie: Slightly more stable than the Star Valk
New 174 4x JK Pro Valkyrie: Haven't thrown it yet
171 Champion Sidewinder: Anhyzers

Midranges
170 DX Roc: Almost every midrange shot
175 DX Kite: Big anhyzer shots and rollers

Putt and Approach
New 168 Supersoft Wizard: I really like the flight but it sometimes bounces out
175 Evolution Wizard: Awesome approach disc
New 174 SSS Proto Wizard: Falls in very nicely, but doesn't fly as far
New 173 Medium Wizard: I don't like this one very much
New 174 Soft Wizard: Average
New 175 SSS Wizard: Softer than the Proto SSS

Thanks for the help

Overstable-
Firebird or Monster. FB bomb on thumbers. I vote FB

Stable-
Teebird or eagle or both, whatever floats your boat.

Understable-
Valk

Distance-
Valk or wraith or orc. I say valk to lower molds if that's what you're in to

Mid-
Roc. Beat that one in then loose the kite

Putter-
Wiz

So I say this from the bottom up

3 wiz- 1 putter 2 thrower(1 OS 1 US)
3 ROC - 1 each Stability
2 Teebird or 1 TB 1 Eagle
2 Valks or valk and a distance mold
1-2 Firebird

You can do 5 molds and 12 or so discs

I would drop the FL (give it to ur dog) and switch the E wizard over to the baseline plastic or another mold. (the Es are squirrely imo)

actually I have an E glow wizard that i just use for hyzer shots on windy days. You can use a new S Wizard for that shot as well, but it has to be rather new

Could definitely afford to drop a few in the stables I'd say.

if those wraiths dont turn for you, i would drop one as well. and they arent stable, they're speed stable... (which means no no in the wind)

If I drop the FL should I put the Pro Line Monster in it's place? Because I think I should have more than one overstable. I can turn the Wraith over a little bit, but it usually fades a lot afterward and doesn't go as far as my Valkyries. What do you mean by speed stable vs. stable? I'm not actually sure if I need the Wraiths in my bag, because I can do just about everything I can do with them with my Valkyries. I really like my E Wizard for longer shots and wind, and mine's not squirrely at all. I also just dropped the Eagle in favor of a new 175 Champion Teebird. I usually carry a lot of molds so this bag will be a little difficult for me to get used to. Do you guys see any holes or things that I should change in this bag?

Overstable
New 167 Star Firebird
Pro Line Monster

Stable Drivers
171 Champion Teebird
175 Champion Teebird

Understable Drivers
168 Star Valkyrie
New 174 4x JK Pro Valkyrie
171 Champion Sidewinder

Midranges
170 DX Roc
(Ordering another DX Roc)
175 DX Kite

Putt and Approach
New 168 Supersoft Wizard
175 Evolution Wizard

I also have room for one more disc, so just pick one from my first post that you think would be a useful addition.

What's the firebird not giving you?

Just put in 1 firebird and let it beat in a bit, then you'll have disc lick an FL except it will be a lot nicer. Then put in a freshyFX
