the bag

Postby zj1002 » Sun Aug 01, 2010 11:25 pm

tired of posting a new "what in your bag" post every week so I will make my own egocentric post. want to see how this changes over time. I carry a lot of Rocs

M Wiz 175g - main putter
S Wiz 17?g - drives
CE Omega 174g - spin putts, drives

Roc Champion 06 Throwback 180g - hyzer/stable/wind mid
Roc Flat Top DX 172g - low ceiling shots. handles straight & slight anny
Roc DX 17?g - this puppy drives far. my "distance" roc
Roc 11x KC Pro 176g - 6/10 stable, slight turnover if needed. shorter than DX Roc's
Roc 11x KC Pro 177g - Turnover Roc, butter
Roc DX 172g - fresh rancho for beating into rotation

Polaris LS 1.13 - calm hyzer drives
Polaris LS 1.13 - little more stable
Eagle-L 11x Champion - controlled hyzer flips, turnovers
Polaris LS 1.13 - extreme turnovers
Firebird 11x - utility

QOLS - 175g starting to turnover from slight hyzer, goes far
QOLS - 169g new still stable
SOLF 1.1 - this disc is starting to phase out, QOLS is better at straight shots and can hold same hyzer lines
Xcalibur Champ - Utility/Hyzers
Xcalibur Echo Star - Big Hyzers/skips
Omega - QMS - MD2 - QJLS - OLF/S - DD - Scorpius

M Wiz
S Wiz

Roc Champ Throwback 06
Roc 11x
Roc Glow Champ
Panther Champion
Panther Champion

Predator Z
Polaris LS 1.13 hyzer
Polaris LS 1.13 turnover
Eagle-L 11x straight
Eagle-L 11x controlled hyzer flips
Eagle-L 11x 03 tourney stamp Glow Champ EL, feels very much like CE but not sure if 03 is too late. just picked this up at PIAS. edit: Just checked DGSweden which says the Glow Eagle's were 2002, and then not again until 2008. I think I found myself a glow CE EL. I am pretty happy about that


QOLS long turnover/flip
QOLS straight
SOLF 1.1 Hyzers
Xcalibur Champ - Utility

I have under gone a bag revolution the past two weeks and have been digging it. I used to throw the Eagle-L and Panthers religiously but took them out for some crazy reason. The panther's have been a nice compliment to the Roc's and a great "tweener" disc. They can hold the low fast lines that a Roc might burn on. The Eagle-L replaced my QJLS which never felt comfortable, I was forcing myself to throw the disc while on my Millennium kick. I just find myself enjoying the predator 100x more than any FB I have ever thrown, think i will finally stick with it

i like the changes and i think as a roc man i might try out the buzzz, panther, or stalker for a little bit longer roc on a straight rip. which do you suggest?

took out your firebird? i would leave that in for rollers and utility shots can't see a xcal doing the skips and shorter stuff an 11x can do into a strong wind. well maybe. i would just think about the touch you can get even in the wind with a firechicken.

some changes

Wiz M & S
Mako Star x2 - one holds a nice long anny, the other is straight
Roc 06 Champ x2 - one is straight, other for hyzers
Panther Champ x2 - low line mid shots, flips, backhand rollers
Eagle-L x3 - CE Glow for stable, 11x for anny/flips, 11x for straight/flips
Polaris LS 1.13 - Flat hyzer shots
Predator Z - hyzer/utility
QOLS x2 - one beat for anny, one fresh
SOLF 1.1 - flat hyzer distance
Xcalibur Champion - hyzer distance, utility

I picked up a mako last friday(flat). The only mako's I spent any considerable time with were the xout champs, those were more stable than I wanted. Really digging the flat makos, the hold their line and don't come out until just before they land. It was probably my most successful disc this weekend out at Circle R. Sort of want to try out a starfire in place of the SOLF, haven't thrown a SF in a while.

Elnino: Try a buzz or stalker, the panther might more unstable than you want. I like the stalker but it doesn't really have a place in my bag right now. As for my overstable fairway driver, this spot changes the most for me. I really want to get an XXX again, I just keep forgetting to buy them at Discnation.

Wiz M & S
Mako Star x2
Roc 06 Champ Throwback
Roc 06 Champ Glow
Roc DX Flattop
Eagle-L x2
Polaris LS 1.13
TB Echo Star - put it back in the bag, digging it
Pred Z
QOLS x2
SOLF 1.1
Xcalibur Star

been fun throwing a TB again, not sure if it will stay in the bag for the tourney this weekend. I will either add another polaris or keep the TB come sat. Panther's just didn't make the cut, but they were fun. They will just be backup discs based on the course, so I plan to always have one available. still loving the EL's, very workable disc for anything 320-400ft. basically the same bag. I want to try out a champ viper, xxx(in place of pred), and Starfire(in place of solf).

Current "casual" bag

Wizard x3 - added a firm for driving(thanks Booter)
Roc x2 - Champ 06 and 11x KC. both for hyzers
Mako x2 - 1 FR for straight shots, 1 stock star for everything else
Polaris ls 1.13 x2 - One for flat hyzers, one for flips and turnovers
Eagle-L - champ 11x for straight shots
Predator Z - becoming my workhorse driver with all the wind in san marcos. also great for FH rollers
Valkyrie - 4x JK, such a great disc
QOLS - beat turnover driver
Xcal - hyzer, FH, utility

the bag is basically the exact same just watered down since I haven't played a tourney in a while. I found I really don't need a wraith, I kept reaching for a QOLS or Valk because I can control those decently out to 400ft. I have some overlap with the eagle-l and valk based on the type of lines, but I feel more comfortable having both(that is important for me).

bag has been set with this lately

Wizard x2 - S & M
Roc x3 - KC Pro, Stable Mid Driver, Champ Glow
Mako x2 - 1st run flat, Stock Star beat
Eagle L - broken in glow champ, reliable late turn
Valkyrie x2 - 4x Stable, 4x beat
Predator x2 - Z fresh, Z beat
QOLS - beat turnover/flip
PD - had a beat P, just lost it today. going to stock up on some S for SOLF type shots.
Xcal x2 - fresh, beat

Been having fun throwing the Valkyrie, just a great disc. still overlap with EL/Valk/QOLS but they all outrange the next by 15-20 ft, so I like keeping them all when I can. Polaris LS hasn't been in the bag as much, mainly because my home course doesnt require it, but for a tourney bag I would be carrying 2. Z Pred is now a staple, works much better than a FB for my style.

Wizard x3 - 1 soft, 2 Mediums. 1 of the M is trashed nicely
Roc x4 - 1 Stable Mid Range Driver, 1 11x KC, 1 Glow Champ, 1 06 Champ(straight throws on rough terrain)
Mako x1 - Getting off my mako kick, but still love it for control/anny shots
Eagle L - broken in glow champ for flips/turnover
Eagle X - hyzers, flips flat nicely
Valkyrie x2 - both 4x JK, straight money
Predator - brand new Z
QOLS - beat turnover/flip distance
SOLF - controlled flat hyzer distance
SPD - tomahawks and forward penetrating hyzers
Xcal - echo, beat in nicely. utility disc and big hyzers

still loving the Valkyrie. I have managed to find where it fits in a bag that already had EL's and the QOLS. The Valk has become the core disc of the three. The Valkyrie handles all 350-400 straight shots. EL handles anything shorter that is to low for a roc or that I need a late flip for. QOLS for sheer distance. The Mako is still an important disc in my bag but with my new grip I have needed a disc I can lay into if needed. so the Roc has come back as the main mid for now.

same exact set up except some new editions and testers that i really like.

New semi-permanent disc:
Hurricane - does everything I always wanted out of a wraith or surge. love it so far

Testers:
Buzz - finally started throwing one, nice line drive mid shots. still not entirely sold on it
MRV - fun disc to throw. can handle a lot of lines and usually finishes stable even with a lot of power. glidey

12x KC Pro Aviar - 3 of these in rotation, usually only 2 in bag. two are drivers, one putter.
Pro Rhyno - getting that rhyno fever. great approach disc on all shots, rarely rolls which is great on these hills
11x KC Pro Roc - 2 of these, 1 fresh/stable, 1 beat
Star Mako
Champ Glow Roc - winthrop hole 7
Polaris LS 1.13 - hard to keep this thing out of the bag, compliments the Valks nicely
Valkyrie - 4x JK, SB Valk, and beat up Star for rollers/flips
Predator Z
Solf - 2 of these, 1 beat/1 fresh
Hurricane - most controllable distance driver, always have a spot for it
Xcal star 1st run - utility

Rhyno has been the biggest surprise to make the bag. The discraft mids never stuck in the bag, didn't really give them enough time to learn the possible lines. Valk's have pretty replace the need for the QOLS. been throwing either a beat SOLF or Valk on my QOLS lines. The aviars are awesome for driving, but I am still adjusting to putting with them. mainly i just need to become a better putter and stop focusing on distance.
