Right now I've been working on my forehand game, especially for approaches and for me the comet and fuse are a good bit different when thrown FH. The comet when thrown fh is much easier to get it to fly on a nyce gradual turnover that doesn't come out whereas for me my fuse seems to be a good bit more lss when flicked. So until I either get better with my FH or my fuse loses its lss ill carry both.

As for BH its odd but my comet is actuall slightly more stable but truly not too much different than my fuse. As of now my fuse is getting most of my BH throws. If it wasn't for the different flights I get out of both discs with my FH throws I would just throw the fuse.

I know once I clean up my FH I coud prolly get the fuse to do what i want but until then they compliment each other very well and I'm also not much for mold minimalism any more.

So this is the setup

172 C TD (Long Straight Shots, Turnovers and smooth Hyzers)
175 S PD (Seasoned a bit, jack of all trades)
167 S PD (Overstable, Fits perfect between the S and C PD. C like HSS with S like LSS)

169 Champ EagleX (Workhouse driver, my favorite disc)
169 ESP XL (Killer of woods, hyzer flip machine)

177 SP Squall (Truly a longer Buzzz. Extremely versatile that can be thrown at all power levels)
173 Proline Squall (Similar to above but less HSS)
173 Opto Fuse (Frozen Ropes, turnovers and Glidey Hyzers. Most fun disc to throw and watch fly)
177 Z Hornet (My overstable mid)

170 Omega AP 1.2 (puttz only)
170 Omega AP 1.11 (Straightish to Turnover Drives and Approaches)

That's a darn fine bag but I would feel at a loss without something like a Sidewinder, River, JLS, or something like that with that set up.

EagleX and Northman cover what those discs do just fine. Actually the Northman is what I wanted the River to be and more. Im anxious to see how its going to fly in six months

What in the Mahal these days. I know I carry tons of discs (definitely more than I NEED), but I throw a lot of solo rounds and casual golf with buddies so I tend to throw a lot of multiples. I could easily cut this bag in half but where is the fun in that? Also a couple of discs that come in and out depending on my mood and weather conditions (CPD2 and TD). Revisited the OLFs and I now remember again why this one one of my favorite molds. I also finally gave the 1.2's a chance (previously I would only throw 1.1's) but due to some trust in the grip issues I dropped it. Those issues are no longer a problem with the newer SOLFs, Im thinking because of the plastic. Anyway, still working on where they fit exactly in my bag BUT im thinking they will become my workhorse, especially once I learn how to range them the way I want. I have been over throwing a lot of stuff with them as of now just because of how sneaky long these can be. Also, Im giving the EagleL an run for their money to see if they will stay or if I will go back to my BEAT champ EX.


174 Z Nuke - BIG Hyzers, Flex shots and a few other novelty shots
175 S/DS Destroyer - Main Distance Disc, Straight D
175 S/DS Destroyer - Same as above just more stable for them windier days
175 CPD - Stabilized CFR - Headwinds, skip shots

175 SOLF 1.2 - Stable, handles mild winds weld. Seems to be a jack of all trade
170 SOLF 1.2 - Similar as above but less HSS so I can work it on a few more lines easier
166 11x Champ EL - Tunnels shots, Flips and who knows what else yet
175 12x Champ EL - Pretty much same as above, figuring out where it fits
172 Star EagleX - Was my workhorse but that is taking a break to learn the OLFs

173 Opto Pain - Stable Mid, Great with Flex Shots.
176 Opto Pain - More stable than above
176 X Wasp - Beat and pretty damn awesom
168 Z Comet - I Like Comets. They are all similar but different in there own ways.
174 ESP Comet - See Above
177 ESP Comet - See Above
168 ESP Zone - Utility. Overstable shot mid, long putter

175 D P2 - Main Putter
168 12x KC Aviar - More Stable putts
175 S P2 - Stable/Slightly Overstable Approach/Driver Putter
175 Glow KC Aviar - Pretty much same as above just slightly less HSS
172 Proto Omega AP - Stable to Slightly Understable Approach Disc. $$$$$$$$

Pretty damn happy with this set up. Really the only disc that is fighting for a spot is the Quasar and so far so good. If it doesnt work out then my BEEF Destroyer will go back in. I know there is overlap but they all have their place. I play A LOT of different courses so eventually they all get used. I dont like to set my bag up for a specific course because I play too many different ones so I just set my bag up for all of them.
