He probably throws anny distacne, a champ teebird will fly an S well thrown with anny, w/ hyzer or almost flat it wont turn unless the wind is howling.

For a distance disc my Star Teebird is pretty consistent. I've only seen it flip on a windy day (which I should've been throwing something heavier anyways).
Nice straight line with predictable fade.

For midrange shots I've been loving my DX Wolf of all things. I know it's a not a popular disc but man is this disc dead straight with great glide & very little fade.
If you try too power it, it may turnover, but anything within 150' you just give it a light toss & away it goes. (I may tend to release a bit hyzered which I guess elimates the understableness of the disc?)

My S-Wizard ranks a close 2nd for mid-shots, but I like the rim on the Wolf better.

Putter: Pro-Rhyno. Love soft putters. It beat my Wizard out of the putter pocket.

Best disc hands down is the Aviar PnA. I throw so many different types of shots with it from normal putts, to sidearm puts and upshots out to 150' to backhand hyzer anyhyzer or straight drives up to 300'. I use this disc for at least 65% of my shots even on open relativley long courses.

DX Roc

This is rather surprising to me since I started out with a Shark, threw a Roc once, and decided (in my infinite wisdom :roll:) that I didn't like midranges with a bead.

I recently decided to give the Roc another shot. After using it for a long enough time to actually get a feel for it, it's my go to disc for any shot that requires a straight controlled flight under about 250'. I've now got two of them in my bag...one nicely broken in for straight flights with slightly left finishes; and one that's really beat up for right finishes and/or turnovers. I still need to get a brand new one, but my new D Wasp is still auditioning...though it's not looking good. :wink:

Good ole Roc, nothing beats Roc.

Poor Bart, always picks Roc.

Hmmm...interesting responses.

Rocs, Wizards and Aviars...

Maybe someone from the disc companies should read this.

I did not see any one say, "when in doubt I reach for my Star Wraith/Orc/overstable/$20 plastic/2" wide wing new megadriver".

Basically, the best discs are old. The best discs also have a bead type design. I agree completely.

When in doubt

Pro Cyclone
Roc
Aviar P & A

On windy days, replace Cylcone with Predator X.

Discs I am most confident will not do what I want and get me in trouble: my Star wraith/orc/overstable/$20 plastic/2" wide wing new megadriver"

Discs I am confident have helped me bring my personal best to -4 to pro par on my home course: dx teebird, dx roc, s wizard

Go figure. :P

If in doubt... TL.

My TL can be ripped flat & straight.. and lands flat & straight. If straight isnt feasable.. a little pitch in either direction can get her to do most anything.

Maybe I really need to experiment with gazelle's... I am getting more and more comfortable with my leopard for tunnel shots, as it's less power required to go the same straight line distance as a Roc with less effort which, for me, is more accurate (very tight tunnel shots...)

For me, it is my 177 beat in D Wasp. I can get it to do nearly anything, and it is still stable enough to have a nice predicatable finish.

very true, still if I am picking one disc Its the beat med wizard, but three it would be beat med wizard, broken in d wasp, broken in dx teebird. The wizard just gets better and better broken in in S plastic.

Suprisingly enough, th monster. It may have huge fade, but its the same almost every time, regardless of the conditions. i use it whenever i need to get around something, and it always goes where i want.
