Postby cnick718 » Sun Nov 16, 2008 8:45 pm

I have been playing pretty frequently for 1 ½ years now. I throw 325-350 consistently. Any suggestions on minimizing overlap or on discs that are missing from my bag are appreciated.

1. Stable Control Drivers
*Ch. Teebird 168
Star Teebird 171
Ch. Eagle-L 174
*Star. Eagle-X 169
I use the Teebirds if I just need to go straight and flat and the Eagles if I have to shape any kind of line.
Ch. Orc 169 I just added this disc to my bag recently to try it out. I’m considering it as a sidearm driver.
Is a TL close enough in feel to a Teebird that it would be a good addition without adding too many molds?

2. Distance Drivers
*Star Wraith 170
Pro Wraith 175

3. Understable Driver
*Ch. Sidewinder 168 long right turns
Pro Wraith ??? beaten up pretty heavily. Very flippy at high speed.
10x KC Pro Cheetah 174 very old and beat but hyzer flips oh so nice.

4. Moderately Overstable Driver
I use the star Wraith for this slot should I find something else to fill it?

5. Very Overstable Driver
Star Teerex 174 Should I replace this with a better wind fighting disc like a firebird?

Mids: (In order of stability)
*Ch. Roc 180
Super roc 180
Star Ontario 180
*Glow rancho 165 (actually not terribly flippy but very straight)
*Glow Ontario 165 (fairly new but very flippy at high speed)

Putters:
(2) Glow Aviar P&A 172
Pro Pig 171 used mostly for short sidearm shots

*= Discs I throw most often.
That’s 19 discs that I carry in a Revo Carolina.

Pick either the Orc or Wraith for a distance driver. You won't need both. Using one of your overstable or distance drivers for sidearm is probably better than keeping a specific disc for it.

The TL would be too much overlap. It would take the place of your Eagle.


3. Understable Driver
*Ch. Sidewinder 168 long right turns
Pro Wraith ??? beaten up pretty heavily. Very flippy at high speed.

You won't need the Sidewinder with the Wraith in your bag. An Eagle will beat in to replace the Cheetah, too.

4. Moderately Overstable Driver

The Teerex might fill this spot well. Especally if you're able to get a fairway driver 350' consistantly.

5. Very Overstable Driver
Star Teerex 174 Should I replace this with a better wind fighting disc like a firebird?
I'd replace it with a Z Pred, Champ Firebird or E Spirit.

Putters:
(2) Glow Aviar P&A 172
Pro Pig 171 used mostly for short sidearm shots
I'd find a putter inbetween those in stability and use it for everything, but I know convincing people to change putters they like is difficult.

IMO, you'll get more distance and control out of lower end plastics for fairway drivers and mids, but if you're happy with how you're throwing I wouldn't make that a high priority. It might be something fun to experiment with when you get the itch for new plastic, though. Most people, especally newer players, find they learn a lot from throwing these types of discs.

If you pick the Wraith, keep the TRX.

If you keep the Orc, get a Starfire for the TRX slot.

I think I will keep the Wraiths and lose the Orc. Ironically I think my Teerex used to be your Teerex. I bought it off our local disc trader a couple months ago (I believe he trades on Discgolfreview occasionally as well). It's yellow with a school bus "Back to School Bash" stamp. On the back it has the name "Bradley Walker PDGA #31425".

Thank you everybody who has commented for your insight, I appreciate it.
