Z pred

Star wraith - 175 (echo goodness)
Star wraith - 172 - beat

Opto Striker - one of the overstable ones
GL Striker - straight one

DX Roc x 4

Wizard x 3

It's been working well around here.

I like it, but what do you do for longer turnover shots? Just manipulate your beat Valk?(I throw TeeBirds, so I'm no familiar with Striker versatility)

Maybe you should add a Leopard for controlled turn-overs and rollers?

I flick for turnover shots right now until my GL striker gets more beat in or if I need a turn over line really bad I just throw my beat roc.

Oh, duh - forgot about flick shots. I'm a RHBH only player... carry on my wayward son.

XXX

QOLF (want to replace this with a stable Halo)

Opto Striker
GL Striker

Opto Vision (not here yet, throwing a sidewinder here now)

176 Aftershock
171 Aftershock

179 Z comet
169 Z comet

173 Ion
166 Ion
170 Ridge

I think I like messing with my practice bag more than I like actually using my real bag nowadays. Both aftershocks are Z.

Stable Halos are great. There are longer discs, but I believe the Halo is a good as it gets for a disc that fast. The disc NEVER surprises me in terms of its flight line, so if I turn it over I did something very wrong. I've been messing with a 169g dome Opto, and that thing is awesome. I don't even throw discs that light very often, but this may become my favorite Halo.

Got the Vision and the Halo in and this bag worked out great for me except for the ridge. I took the ridge out and put a wizard in to putt with. I really wish I could putt with an Ion but the premium plastic just feels weird when I am putting.

I put a big gouge in the bottom of the flightplate of my GL striker, it kinda sucks and I hope it doesn't crack there.

No, it's a blue one I've had in the bag for a while now.

Had to wash my small bag after a cat threw up on it and played a round with my larger bag and I mixed it up a bit:

Z Force - newish

SOLF - 172 - newish
SOLF - 171 - beat

Z pred - new
Z pred - beat

CE EL - newish
CE EL - beat

Star roc
DX roc x3
10x roc

wizard x 5

Really the big change is that I took out the CE EXs and am trying to use the z preds to cover their shots and it worked really well actually. Also my favorite roc is back in the bag now that it is warmer out.

I feel the same way. I had to put my Voodoo back in to put with because I couldn't get used to the premium feel either. It really kills my short putts...the lack of confidence and feeling like I have to throw it harder than I want to from 25' and in. I do all of my approaching and long runs with the Ion though.

This bag combo worked really well for him out at Cedar rock and wellspring in B-town and Zeb in Raleigh...

I vote this bag as the keeper man, you throw those solfs pretty good!

Got a healthy variety of PDs in today from ZJ and played a lunch round with:

XXX
C PD
S PD
P PD
S Craze

E Blaze
Z aftershock
Z comet x 2

Ion, first run
Ion, second run
Wizard

and shot really well. Now that I have a full compliment of PDs to mess with, I see how well they can work together. The PD almost needs to be your primary driver to be used to it's full potential which might be why I never really took a shine to it before. I was always mixing it in with Orions and Wraiths and stuff.

I didn't have any opportunity to throw the Craze unfortunately so I still don't know how I like the mold change.
