Solty's Current Setup

Postby Solty » Wed Jun 11, 2008 7:10 am

Putters
Omega SS - worried about a roll away
Wizard - s/m(go-to Putter & driving less then 220)

Middies
180 Champ Roc (finds its way to the basket..still stable)
177 Older Rancho(breaking in to be understable)
180 SM Roc(trying to figure out)

Drivers From Overstable to Understable
170 Star XCaliber
169 CE Firebird FX
174 CE Firebird FL
172 Star Wraith
174 DGA Rogue(fighting with the wraith)
169 Star Destroyer(favoring the wraith more and more)
170 Champ Teebird
172 CE TL

Mids and putters look to be all set

Very Overstable Driver: pick one
170 Star XCaliber
169 CE Firebird FX

Moderately Overstable Driver: done and done
174 CE Firebird FL

Distance Driver: pick one
172 Star Wraith
174 DGA Rogue(fighting with the wraith)
169 Star Destroyer(favoring the wraith more and more)

Stable Control Driver: alll set here
170 Champ Teebird
172 CE TL

Understable Driver: pick one
175 Champ Sidewinder
171 CE QJLS

These suggestions are just to favor minimalism a bit. In reality, if this set up is working for you, I would just go with it. It seems like a pretty solid lineup and I had to be kind of nit-picky to find stuff to change in it.

SW is alot longer then the QJLS. QJLS is more finesse.
Champ TB is much more overstable then the TL. TL = Hyzer Flip.
I agree with the wraith/rogue/destroyer...again..still figuring out.
CE Firebird FL is really in their for comfort in case i lose my goto 169 FX.
CE FX is much shorter then the XC. XC is alot faster and quite a skip machine.

Like you mentioned Tushar, if i'm set...roll with it. I just have my issues w/ Max D right now and alot is attributed to my ongoing shoulder issues...which are slowly going away.

I can dig the distance turnover vs. control. just wasnt sure what you were using those for.
TB and TL are all set as i said before, and the FL is still a great disc to keep in, as is the XCal.

I was really being nitpicky here and the only section that needs work is the distance slot, which you already know. Great looking bag.

Hope the pain is relieved soon

I tried switching from the Surge to the Rogue for a while and ended up switching back to the Surge because the Rogue was just too flippy in a lot of wind conditions unless you get a really flat topped flourescent yellow one. Now, I keep a Rogue around but just use it in dead air or a tailwind. If predictability is a concern, I'd just go with the Wraith out of your setup. The Rogue's very flippy, and I have yet to see someone throw a Destroyer and not say "nooo!! fade!! please?!" or something to that effect heh...

And really, the Wraith/Surge are very very long, already.

I'll echo a little of what Skabob says about the whole Rogue/Wraith/Destroyer debate. The Rogue has become pretty flippy for me. It's not the worse disc ever in the wind, but it doesn't really fight it that well. Since you throw at a little higher elevation than me, I'm sure the Rogue will probably act more stable. When I did have a Wraith and a Destroyer in my bag, I had a lot better success with the Wraith as far as predictablity and all around usefulness. I think a Rogue/Wraith/XCalibur combination will work for all your max D needs.

I personally throw a Rogue/Surge/Force combo right now, using the Surge most of the time. When it's not too windy and my Surge isn't pleasing me, I fall in love all over again with the Rogue. When I'm in tuned with my Rogue it can do it all, for no effort at all. I'm continually surprised how easy it is to rip 350ft with my Rogue. I keep a beat max weight yellow Rogue in for most of the time, and I have a backup new orange Rogue when I'm worried about predicatablity. In short, KEEP THE ROGUE, it's magical.

Skabob and anarak82,

I think the Rogue is just a crutch right now till my shoulder rehab is back. Because i cant get full power....it requires less force then a wraith/destroyer thus masking my lack of power because its glide.

I think ultimately....it'll be a Wraith for Controlled max D....and Destroyer for Ballz-Deep Crazy Max D.

I will keep you posted.

Oh, and it BOMBS in a tailwind. That's what I use my Rogue for the most. Hyzer flip it in a wind and watch it just go forever.

I keep trying to add the force to the mix but it just hasn't clicked with me, yet. I do well enough with a few Surges of varying stability, and Avengers for when the wind starts to pick up a little.
