What disc do you have the most confidence in?

Postby Glock23 » Fri Jun 02, 2006 8:40 am

That is the question. What disc in your bag do you have the most faith in? Also, why? For me there are a few discs that I don't worry about as much as others when I grab them out of my bag. You can break it into groups (putter, mid, driver) or just one disc overall. For me overall would be my coyote. For some reason, I seem to throw my best shots with that disc. For a driver it would be a valk. Sorry for the stupid topic, I am bored at work. :D

my broken in Med Wizard I use for drives and approaches.
That and my Broken in S Sabre its super predictable and I can land it within a 20' lane every time (landing in a narrow fairway OB each side)

Wizard M 175.

I grab it inside 175 ft - every time - except for when directly obstructed.

Taken' out all of the unneccessary movement in my throw and picking my "target" better from outside 15'. Not aiming for a "link" anymore... thanks to the forum here.

My Approach Game is now my best game.

My goal is to be able to use this mold from 200' out.

Right now for me it's the Blaze. I use it for most hyzers from 220'-320' and those shots seem to come up a lot. I find they are overstable enough so that I don't have to worry about them flipping too much, but controlable enough so that I can get them to hold a line for a while before they fade. It also helps that hyzers in that range are a pretty high percentage shot for me anyway.

I have very limited experience with a wide-range of discs, but of what I have now, I find myself constantly leaning on my Pro Valkyrie and DX Rox to get me out of a bad situation or pull off a drive that requires more aim than I'm capable of!

Nice topic in my opinion.

There are two discs that I have the most confidence in:

Beaten in 174g DX Teebird
and a
Thrashed 174g DX Classic Roc (probably around 6 years old)

Confidence just kinda gravitates towards these two discs.
Practice, practice, practice. Especially with players that are better than you. It's one of the only ways to learn new things.

I think anyone who says a sabre is uncontrol able is crazy. If they complain about midrage distance on line drives sure, but that disc is responsible for nearly as many birds and my putter :lol:

Mine is a 175g Pro Classic Roc. Its about as beat up as it can possibly get, and is just super straight for 250'+ and (under normal conditions) it never turns over. I use it for anhyzer, straight, hyzer, forehand approaches, elevated drives, almost anything within 250'. Its also the disc I got my first ace with, I wouldnt leave home without it.

KC Roc 177

This disc is just reliable. Goes exactly where I want, whether that be straight or tracking slightly to the right. Will also hold any kind of hyzer angle for trick shots around obstacles.
