My setup

Postby adidadg » Thu May 08, 2008 8:13 am

Allright, here goes,

175 Champion Firebird - Very Overstable
175 ProLine Monster - Moderatley Overstable

172 Qolf & 171 SOLF - Long stable Drivers, qolf is a bit more stable
171 DX Valk - Long Flippy driver & Distance Roller

172 Champion Teebird - Stable Control Driver
170 ESP XL - Straight to flippy control driver, decent shorter range roller

178 Z Wasp
175 ESP Buzzz
177 D Buzzz - beat

175 Proto Wizard - superbeat
175 Soft Wizard - Main putter

Snap Whitler

I picked up a DX teebird which might replace the XL when it gets beat up, but right now it is a PIG, more stable than my brand new champion Teebird.

Still feels like a lot of discs, any suggestions on trimming it down? Im wondering if a predator could replace both the Firebird/Monster. The firebird gives perfect wind performance but no distance and the Monster offers more distance but is sketchy in stronger headwinds. Is a Pred longer than a firebird?

The DX Teebird will break in to be very straight when thrown from a hyzer. If that's what you're using your XL for then the DX Teebird will be better. They are fairly overstable when new.

The Pred is longer than a Firebird. I'd think your OLF's would work as a moderately overstable driver.

Yeah thats exactly what I use my XL for. I really like it too but if the DX Teebird works even better for that purpose I would like to slim down the # of molds by dropping the XL.

Both of my OLF's are flat top and hence not that stable. Great for big distance though. I'm hoping to get my hands on a 1.2 SOLF, if it flies anything like my earlier run domey SOLF then yes it will fit the bill as a moderatley overstable driver.

Updated...I've narrowed it down to 4 driver molds, 2 mids and 1 putter (and 1 miscellaneous :)). Pretty happy with this setup, I may even drop the Wasp as Ive recently concluded that it is not that different from my ESP Buzzz.

1. Stable Control Drivers
Teebirds (Champion@172g, DX@174g)

2. Distance Drivers
Orion LF (Q@171g, Sirius@170g)

3. Understable Driver
171 DX Valk

4. Moderately Overstable Driver
171 FLX Predator

5. Very Overstable Driver
172 Z-Predator

Mids:
178 Z Wasp - more Stable
175 ESP Buzzz - Stable
170 Z-Buzzz - Straight/semi-Flippy

Putters:
175 Proto Wizard - superbeat
175 Soft Wizard - Main putter
Snap Whitler

Solid, yes?
