Starting a Disc Minimalism bag

Postby Fr0sty711 » Sat Nov 15, 2008 5:12 pm

Ok about a week ago i wrote a Thread Called Fr0sty711(disc whore) stating that i wanted some help ccritiqueing my bag. and to some it all up i had 16 different molds which was too many for me especially b/c i just started playing 1/2 yr ago. and just a few minutes ago i wrote a thread called too many molds b/c i wanted to know how many mold on average you should have. Well i should have just looked around b/c right above my thread is blakes Disc minimalism thread LOL. So i read it and decided i would listen to what people have said and just go back to the basics. In the 6 months i have been playing i have bought around 50 discs just like blake. So i would like some help on my NEW BAG. here is what i have in mind

Stable: DX Teebird(i had this in my bag from the start and i love it),Gazelle,cyclone,avenger
Overstable: Banshee,X pred(just traded for these to try out), flick, spirit
Understable: Sidewinder,Roadrunner,Avenger SS
Mid: Dx Roc (i love them) , Buzzz, element or warrior, XD
Putter: Wizard ( i have alot of these), Banget GT soft(i have thought about trying this)
*t-bone and leopard are of intrest to*

(the disc above are just ones i have had in mind it doesn't mean i own those. so fell free to tell me i should try some of the ones above or give me ur own list)

I am up to using any company and any plastic. i would like you to list the disc and its plastic type. and also i was wondering if i should stay away from lets say champion and only use DX . oh by the way i consistenly drive 310' . so any help to make my new bag would be AWESOME~!!!

Understable: Roadrunner
Mid: Dx Roc 1 newish, 1 beat for understable

Start with the Gazelle as your main driver. Throw it for everything but max distance. Once it becomes a turnover disc, start throwing the DX Teebird as your main driver. Then your bag will look like this:

Overstable: X Pred or DX Banshee
Moderately Overstable: DX Teebird
Understable: DX Gazelle
Mids: Rocs
P&A: Wizards

Once the Teebird beats into understable, get a new one and move the first DX Teebird to understable duties. Move the Gazelle to roller duties.

Done and done.

This looks pretty much like my bag. I don't throw only these for disc minimalism reasons, I just don't see any reason to carry anything else at this point. I don't have a big arm, so I try to stay with discs as fast or slower than a TB. Maybe when I get some more distance I'll throw in an SL or an old mold Beast or something.

Mine:
Overstable: DX Banshee
mod Overstable/main: DX Teebird x2
Understable: DX Cheetah
Mid: Shark (adding Champ Shark soon)
P&A: SS Wiz and S Warlock

IF you can throw a DX Teebird farther, use it. If not, Gazelle. Don't just guess, either. Go to a football field and throw 100 drives with each and average the distances.

DX would be a little better.

The gazelle should work just fine here. With proper technique people are amazed how far older discs can go. Even with my overly-caucasian timing and disjointed technique people are still impressed to see a slow Gazelle hit 350'.
