What is the "Must Have" disc from each manufacture

Postby Jwt4412 » Fri Feb 10, 2006 10:06 am

Just curious...

What does everybody think is the "must have" disc from each manufacturer?

Innova: Aviar
DIscraft: Challenger
Gateway: Wizard

:)

more that I think are discs that everyone should start out or throw at least once with...

innova: Leopard, Teebird, Roc
Discraft: MRV, XS
Gateway: Wizard...

I am sure I can list many more discs that are "must haves" but honestly you dont have to have all of them :) that might get confusing

Innova: CFR wraith
Discraft: Z buzz
Gateway: Illusion I guess. I don't throw any gateways so I don't know about them.
Millenium: Q mega
Lightning: None, they all suck.

Good thread.

Innova:
I don't know. I would have to say the wraith as I cannot find an equivalent to it (for me anyway).

Discraft:
Buzz all the way! More specifically the midnight Buzz.

Gateway:
Wizard in whatever firmness you prefer.

Millenium:
I don't throw any, but I would have to say the polaris.

Innova - Firebird / Teebird / Roc
Discraft - Avenger / Buzz
Gateway - Sabre
Millenium & Lightning - No experience with either of these.

I don't think you can really throw putters in this category of "must have". I think it's mostly a matter of preference, mine just so happens to be a wizard.

VERY GOOD THREAD BY THE WAY!!!!!

Keith,
Any info you can pass on about the sabre?

I have tried the wizard and demon from gateway, and I like them both. I'm thinking of trying an illusion next. You think the sabre is their must have?

must haves

Postby trogdor » Fri Feb 10, 2006 1:59 pm

OK, here's a twist. How 'bout a complete setup with only one disc from any given manufacturer?

DRIVERS
Predator (Discraft)
Quarter K (Discwing)
Tee-Bird (Innova)

MID
Q-MS (Millenium)
Demon (Gateway)

PUTT/APPROACH
Arrow (Superflight)

ROLLER
Just about any seasoned lightning disc

I just thought of one I left out:

Millenium:
exp1

I threw this disc plenty until I lost it and just haven't replaced it.

My only experience with the sabre is with the "E" plastic. In my opinion, it is one of the easiest discs to manipulate. It has the distance that surpasses a roc, but not quite the distance of a teebird. Most likely somewhere in the realm of a buzz in terms of distance, maybe a little longer. It holds a line perfectly. And it's not as nose angle sensitive as many fairway drivers, IMO. It has a very minimum amount of fade but is still high speed stable enough to put some "umph" behind it. Give this thing enough height and it can get some pretty nice distance.

I have a hard time when I read people putting HIGH speed drivers as MUST haves... They are nice but they are not nearly consistent enough to use on many golf shots...

If the courses you play are long and wide open the long range driver is a must. Around here our courses tend to be hilly and long. I put the wraith down for innova and I'm sticking to it. I'd say the most consistent long driver out there today is the avenger though.

wheres the DGA support?

uunfourtantly the only disc i have evr thrown is a hawkeye (mid) and its very similar to a roc but its my prefered mid and almost everybody i have let throw it loves it.

Innova: teebird, roc, valkyire, avair
Discraft: xl, magnet
gateway: wizard

i havent thrown any gateway besides the wizard and around my parts gateway does not exsist. as far as discraft i havent really found a driver that i like besides the xl and xpress but the xpress is not a must have. i would put the ching military line up there but the idiots discontinued it.
