I have used a stool for years. I seldom sit on it except for backups in tournaments.

The stool is a perch for the bag. Once you put the bag on your back the stool can be slipped through one backstrap while you walk and its out of your way.

Played my first 18 at lunch with the pack. Result?

Ordered another bag. :lol:

For xmas I got an Innova Deluxe bag. I have the option of returning it and exchanging it for something else at Great Outdoor Provisions. I noticed on the Innova website they say the Deluxe holds 15-20 discs and the Competition holds 18-20. That is pretty hard to interpret. Does the Competition hold more discs than Deluxe? I'd like to have one that holds 25. I put 22 discs in the Deluxe. I think that included the pocket for putters.

That's what I ended up ordering. Guys at Marshall St. talking me into it over the PDGA bag. So now, I'll have the Deluxe, the backpack(if I don't sell it) and my older small Lat. 64 slim Jim. The small bag will be good for 9 hole rounds at our shorter two courses. I rarely need more than a few discs on those.

I traded in the new Deluxe for a Competition. It has only slightly more disc capacity than Deluxe. I think I put 25 in there, including the putter pocket and behind the removable frame.

Got the deluxe yesterday. Really nice, but two putters in the putter pocket looks like a no go right now. Got a good coating of Flexseal on the bottom last night. It needs to dry before I use it. Oh, and the flap holds a putter which is nice.

I finally got out for a round with the Competition. 25 discs fit well, without the dividers installed. And a water bottle, and a rag. Still some empty pockets for other junk. It was pretty comfortable. Somewhat of a chore to put it on and off my back for every shot. I could take the putter out of its pouch and miss a putt with the bag still on my back, but getting the putter back in the bag would have been tough to do.

Pretty happy with the deluxe, but could see something even smaller once I learn molds. I have a couple of discs that I do not recall throwing in 3 rounds. Maybe time to start carrying multiples of the molds I love.

By removing excess molds and putting in fresher versions of your current favorites, I would be willing to bet that your game will come around. As for the bag, I would have recommended skipping the deluxe and going for the DGA Shield bag. I've had a couple different shields and they were both great little bags. Extremely light weight and you could carry a fair bit of plastic in it...especially for a small bag. I will carry anywhere from 10-15 disc's in it. My primary bag is one of the Cabelas XPG anglers and it works great as I can fit anywhere from 18-30 disc's in it. Depending upon the courses I will be playing, I flip flop between these two bags.
If the object of disc golf were to hit trees, I'd be 1100 rated.

No idea how long you've been playing, but in my newb opinion, the multiples of the same mold is a difficult concept to grasp for new players. No one I see on a course does it yet. I am seeing the utility in my Sentinels right now. My Sirius has become mostly straight, while my newer Quantum is a hooker. I can see me eventually dropping the archon/astras and carrying multiple Destroyers.

As far as deluxe vs shield, I was torn. I asked for help from an online seller. The concensus from the guys in that shop was the Innova.

I just don't like my backpack at all. Probably covered earlier in this thread. It's nice to look at, and carries lots of stuff, but I don't like how a backpack is used. I really should sell it.

Losing a crucial disc in competition can ruin the rest of the event so back ups are nice and a rotation of the same disc in different stages of wear for different flights adds versatility and ease to throwing the same mold on more lines or with less need for flight manipulation.
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.
