Not floppy, just flexible. The flightplates are soft and the rim is more on the S side.

Well...the obvious would be to choose between the Wiz and the VP. Guessing the VP's are in there for testing purposes more or less. I would probably take out the Eagle as most shots you throw the eagle on, you should be able to cover with your array of TB's. To me, it looks like you are missing a moderately overstable midrange like a warrrior, wasp or roc. Other than that, looks solid.

You hit the nail on the head with the putters. I may take the Wizards out if I get a VP to break in. I'm really enjoying them so far.

I finally started to understand all this eagle talk on here. I can get an Eagle type of flight with an overstable TB and start it on an anny line, but if I toss the EX on a strait TB line, I get a nice big S. I'm more confident with that shot.

The moderate overstable mid. I'm really not missing that. I've gotten really comfortable tossing hyzers with the Z comets and powereing down on seasoned TBs. I also like to throw the VP and wizards which aren't that much shorter than my rocs. I did put a fresh roc back in the bag for a while, but I never needed them.

I can justify all of this, but I know I could live without the eagle and one of the putters. I can also live without rocs (dear lord, did I just say that) I've been rocless for close to 6 months now and I haven't ever felt like I needed one.

3x Boss
3x Teebird

How bout that? Probably will be going back to the Xtreme, but you can't say no to a free Blaze!

When you're done with that Blaze, send it may way.

Probably will. Its kinda gummy for my tastes and I have a stack of Z Xtremes that I love. The only way I'll keep it is its pretty similar. Then I'll use it when there's a chance to lose an Xtreme.

I just played with this bag except I forgot to switch out the Blaze for the Xtreme. Loved it. Dave with only 11 discs?!? Crazy.

CE Blaze...love this disc. I threw mine a ton this past weekend at the Iowa Team Championship. What are your thoughts on it Dave?

I was really impressed. It held up great in the wind. Compared to my seasoned 1st Run Z Xtreme, it was faster, less overstable, and more glide. It was going strighter longer before the hard fade. I didn't toss any thumbers with it because of the wind. The only downer about it is the plastic is a little soft for my tastes, but not as bad as the Voodoos and Wizards in the CE.

Ya know, I've been telling myself for a while that I ought to lose the Eagle and commit to the Teebird. But when I get out on a fairway, I'd rather throw the Eagle than the Teebird on a longer fairway shot, and I'd almost always rather throw a heavy Gazelle on the ones where I want no-nonsense straightness and dependable fade. If it's longer than I can hit with the Gazelle, I'd rather throw the Orc.

God, I remember the day I realized that no matter what everyone said about the Roc, I just didn't seem to have the same relationship with it and should let it go. I wonder if I'm going to end up feeling the same way about the Teebird?
