id wager your fuses will fall off the map


I doubt it simply because there aren't many discs in the Fuse's class (Meteor, Element?) to replace it with. I also have had quite a bit of success with it...I'm not a big fan of the rim slant, but for some reason it doesn't bother me enough to overshadow the Fuse's strengths.

When I look deep into the future I see most my mid duties being taken care of by Vectors in various stages of wear... :thumbup:

Funny, I really love Fuses too, and never even noticed that they were slanted. They've always felt about like a buzzz to me.

My first Opto Fuse has seasoned perfectly after hundreds of throws, and dozens of tree hits. Me and that Fuse have a better affinity than any other disc I've ever owned. Sometimes I feel like I can almost remote control it. I've never had a disc where I felt like I knew just how to throw it so that it would glide straight for 250', then suddenly take a fairly hard right, and pan out flat before it lands. Its insanely shape-able and awesome. I will always throw Fuses. No matter what.

The VP may be on the outs. I've just REALLY loving going back to KCs. I did get a glow champ BB that's really overstable, but I love carving it up with my KCs. I usedKCs since 9xs came out. Did a stint with wizards when I was sponsored by GW, went back to KCs. Then 10xs got expensive and hard to find, so in 08, went to wizards (with flings with challengers and magnets) until I got my VPs in early 09. Used those and ridges for all of 09 and most of '10. Then in Sept of last year, I got the new GOOD KCs. Slowly since then my vibrams started seeing less and less use. For the last few weeks I've been VP less for the first time in 2 years. I haven't missed it. :S I still have my proto sitting in my closet and one production run. Who knows if it'll come back.

I will commit to Magics, Fuses, Hornets, Rivers and Preds for a year; which will be weird for me since I seemed to chang out my bag weekly last year, but I think that really hurts your game.

I will; however, be testing some disc, but mainly distance drivers I have not really put into the bag yet and just for extra practice throws and field work until I really think Im ready for one to go in and join the other staples.

Still good on all 3. Not sure why I didn't have the Core listed as well, pretty committed to that one as well. In fact, I'm pretty happy with the whole bag at the moment:

Firebird
Vision
Surge SS
JLS
Drone
Core
Comet
Voodoo

I could see maybe swapping my JLS's out for my XL's again, but I think the JLS would win in the end.


This was January last year.

Voodoo, Core and JLS are the only one's still in there.

As for commitments for this year..

Voodoo - is and will be the goto putter.
Fuse - LOVE it.
C/S/P PD's - These aren't going anywhere.

The Zone and Ion are probably safe, but the core may find itself out of the bag if the new lat64 mid flies how I hope it will. The JLS is pretty solid, the river gave it a run for its money, but the JLS won out.


My bags been the same pretty much all year. The JLS has been shelved mostly though and I've added the pain and TD. I'm happy with the bag on the whole and will probably not mess with it much.

One year from now these discs will still be in my bag:
DX BBs
DX Rocs (probably for the rest of my life, yo)
ESP Cyclone
C-line PD

I've had a Firebird in my bag for over 5 years, but I would drop them if I found something I liked better for it's spot. I'm not sold on my Valkyries being in my bag longterm quite yet, I've been tossing those on and off for the past 6 years but they've all been old CE and JK. Just picked up a fresh Champ and it's a lot less glidey (it seems), so I don't know. I'm going to try out the stars and test out the champ more before I dismiss the Valks completely though.

im not gonna make any pledges but ive been throwing Aviars for 10 years (last 4 years i been playing around with other putters but done with that), Roc's for about 9 1/2 years, TeeRex's and Orion LFs since the First Runs were released so 5-6yers (?), Rhynos for about 4-5 years. Ive basically just been playing around with fairway drivers and the "fast" distance drivers over the last year. happy i put the leopards back in. im really considering going and getting a new valkyrie, and restoring the essential parts of my original bag for the first 6 years of disc (SE TL, Valkyrie, Roc, Aviar).

Well, barely a month after I said that DX BBs would be in my bag for the next year I have switched back over to the Wizard. Just couldn't stand the bulkyness of the BB compared to the Wizards that I've been throwing for 4 years. Also the BBs have felt lighter despite the fact they are the same weight, must be because the plastic is concentrated on the outer rim on the Wizard. I won't commit to the Wizard though, in a couple weeks I'll be picking up some new Ions and I'm going to try them out as well.
