The Bugbee Bag

Postby Bugbee » Wed Jun 11, 2008 10:52 am

Ok, here it is. After months of retooling and trying to cut down on some molds (mind you I still carry a boatload of discs on me) here it is..


Aviars
KC's for throwing
JK for putting

Sharks(I disliked Rocs so don't go there)
DX for turnover (workin on beatin it in)
Star for straight
I have a Pro and a Champ in the mail also to see how they compare

Gators
Champion (it has a large bead, does that make the an X?) for utility, thumbers, tommy's etc.
Star without the bead for long sweeping midrange hyzers

Teebirds
Champ - 1 beat (straight as an arrow) and 1 new
Star - wide open distance (try to not beat it up too bad) under 360

Firebirds
Champion - 1 getting beat and 1 new for more open shots

Maxs
Star - 1 getting beat and 1 new for more open shots

Destroyers
Champ - windy day bombs ( its beefy)
Star - good old fashioned distance
Pro - (the most understable) big sidearms or maybe a tailwind

Well, there you have it. I think I know what some of the replies will entail but maybe it will take hearing it from other people to make a difference. Enjoy!

I don't see why you need both a Firebird and a Max
My trades

I suck at Disc Golf, therefore I can't afford to carry discs that suck.

I thought about that myself the other day and decided to play a round without my Maxes. it was a bit windy and I found myself wanting my maxes for the real long holes into a headwind. The FB holds up great in the wind, but so does the max and it goes a lot farther for me. It does sounds like somewhat of an overlap I am sure, but I find it to be useful to have both.

Don't you think the Champ Destroyer could do the same that the Max can? I know it's not as overstable as the Max is but if you need distance into headwind it's not possible without sacrifices.

I don't know about the champion destroyer, but my star is not that great into anything more than a moderate headwind....flips like a paper plate when it's really blowing.

The Champion Destroyer is a bit overstable (more than the Star for sure), especially because it is new.I still could see it flipping a bit into a headwind though while the Max seems to never flip. I figure, why play around when the Max works great?

Yeah, I hear ya. I need to pick up another max, that was my super-pig but I lost it. A lot of people on here will give you crap for not being minimalistic enough, but I figure if you're using them all, go for it. your bag looks pretty good to me.

The max is a nice disc for sure and I use it at least a few times each round. Considering I used to have ~15 molds in the bag a few months ago, I think 7 is about as minimalistic as I can get for now. Thanks for the suggestions guys. I think I just need to work on some form issues and such and I should be able to compete in AM1 and not get stepped on.

Gators with a bead are Gator X's.
Gators without the bead are L's.
Dave D. said the Star plastic Gator will be switched from what you have to the X mold. I don't think there are plans to continue running the L mold in ANY plastic.

If you REALLY like your Star Gator L's, you might want to consider stocking up NOW.
