Discs that I imagine will be in my bag for some time are: An old Proline Firebird that has been there for years. A circle stamp Champ Gator that I got when they came out and is still a stable pig. An 11X opaque Champ Teebird that bombs and a few DX Rocs. I have had the same buttery soft 4X JK putter in the bag for more than 4 years as my main putter. I have enough 4X back ups that I should never have to switch but lately I have been considering trying something a bit stiffer............like a 5X

I compete with dgdave for the title of the worst DGR minimalism offender/bag change disc whore. I went on a mission this year with Rocs that are the only discs so far I may keep on throwing more than a year from now. I tried to find a nice mix and the best suited ones for me. So I have DX in several weights from light to max weight, KC 175 and 180, two 180 Star Sanny 20th anniversaries, two European Open 2009 Ontarios that are beefier than those Sannies, Star Rancho USDGC 09, 180 DX bottom stamp and a RW Pro 180.
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.

I'm not really committed too strongly to anything right now since I'm (in theory) growing and improving as a player and have a long ways to go. Right now I can't imagine now having a Rhyno in my bag as I've really come to love everything about it in the short time since I bought one. I'll go ahead and pledge to keep using a Cheetah (bitches) for at least six months.

My bag has been pretty well set for several years. I added the Eagle-X in for some wind and hyzer shots but for the most part, no changes.

1 Star Firebird <never use it>
2 Star Starfires <rarely use it>
5 Star SLs <go to distance driver>
3 Star TLs <main fairway driver>
1 Star Eagle <fairway wind/hyzers>
3 Star Sharks <so much a go to that they call me Star Shark at the course>
2 Zeroline Spikes <been putting with these since they came out>

I'll sign up.

I pledge to keep the following in my bag for at least a year:

Predator
Striker
Comet
Magic

Not like this is a stretch since it's the core of my bag (just changed to strikers after about 3 years of teebirds, won't be going out anytime soon)

Not committing to a distance driver since I'm never happy with one for long, like right now I'm seriously contemplating switching to the Pro Starfire.

Z or ESP Predators
1 DX Banshee for a dependable expendable disc
Various OLFs
Various Teebirds
Various Rocs
Various Wizards

I've tried a few other molds for weeks or months at a time, but always come back to these.

I have almost the same story. Since January of this year I have not changed a single mold.

Pred
Orc
RR
Eagle X
Roc
Wizard

I use DX EXs for my dependable expendables. Generally I prefer the SEXs though.

I could see the Roadrunner getting phased out at some point though. Visions look pretty tasty, and I have a couple Star Orcs really starting to get flippy.

Predator (Z summer, ESP winter)- decent in wind, so workable for lines

Timberwolf- sorta E-X/Gazelle/Cyclone flight that never wears out and does not get too floppy in my northern cloudy climate, just not a safe shade of orange in fall

Wasp (Z summer, ESP winter)- decent range, great predictability

PD- playing with a mix of weights/plastics, but the combination of reliable & long D is very intoxicating (and may boot the Striker all the way out)


By 2010 I may have a verdict on my VP, keeping the Wizard stack in play. That leaves the understable driver and neutral putter slots for experiments (probably Valk/Pure).

I hereby pledge to keep the 170-172 soft challenger with the cool Surly Brewing Company stamp on it that I bought from GGGT.

I also pledge to find which plastic I prefer the buzzz in by the time Spring arrives...

Buzzes, Challengers, and Eagles are pretty much staples in my bag. I am liking the QOLF and the Firebird so far. I think I will keep these molds for the time being throughout 2010.

I'll start by saying that at the very least, the Voodoo, Buzzz, and Stalker will be in my bag for the next year.


I'm going to add additional commitments to the Meteor, XXX, and the Boss. I like these discs and honestly with a kid on the way I'm not going to have the $$ to be messing around with a bunch of different stuff.

Have to give the proverbial "whaddup" to the JLS--best fairway driver there is. It's staying in my bag.

Congratulations on the baby. Is it bad that when we had ours I was trying to figure out how early is to early to put a disc in his hand. Hes now Three and learning to throw a putter around the yard. I am looking forward to taking him with me.
