In case anyone reads these
This is more for my own record so I can look back at what I did and when.
Finally got some snap this past fall and after finding it and losing it a bunch, it seems to be more or less consistent now. Max D now is about 480. Haven't had too many nice days to really get out to a field and work on max D shots, but those that have gone far have gone about that far. Average is closer to 450. Had to throw a Destroyer in my bag as the Wraith is now a little less predictable.
(1) 175 C-PD2 - still trusty and reliable into a headwind. Will not flip. Used for max D headwind shots.
(1) 172 Z Predator - fresh and overstable. Very reliable. Used for controlled headwind drives.
Distance drivers (400+ft)
(1) 175 Echo Star Destroyer - poppy top nice and stable. Thrown hard it will stand up and turn a bit but always hyzer back.
(1) 175 Star Wraith - poppy top as well. Plenty stable but easier to turn than the Destroyer. I actually use the Wraith as a turnover/roller disc now, but I lost all my beat star Wraiths so this one is being worked in right now. Stll plenty stable and overlaps with the Destroyer a bit. Once it beats in it will have its spot again.
(1) 172 Star Valkyrie - used for hyzerflip/turnover drives out to past 400. Very controllable disc.
(1) 175 JK Pro Valkyrie - beat in for roller duties. Thrown hard and flat it will turn over and hit the ground rolling forever. Have gotten this thing out to just past 500.
Control Drivers (350-400ft)
(2) 172 Z Predators - one beat in straight with a nice fade, the other is more beat and has a nice turn to it with a straight finish. These kicked the Teebirds out of my bag.
(1) 175 X Predator - more beat in than the Z. Easy to turn and can be manipulated easier for right turning shots or in the woods.
(1) HPP Demon - fast and overstable. Used for spikes, headwind shots or for shots where I want a harder finish than the Buzzz can provide.
(2) 175 Z Buzzz - one fresh one somewhat seasoned. Use one or the other depending on how much fade I want in the end.
(2) 175 ESP Comet - one fresh and stable, the other beat for hyzerflip/turnover duties.
(1) 175 X Comet - beat in for touch hyzerflip shots or turnover shots.
Driving Putters (0-250ft)
(2) 175 M Wizard - new and beat used for shorter drives and upshots.
Switched my putters to Wizards now too. The Magic was a great putter but got too touchy in the wind. Now have two identical 168 M Wizards that I use for putting and they're great.
As I beat the Destroyer in I will decide whether I will switch my bag to all Destroyers or if I will keep the Destroyer/Wraith combo. When both are new, the discs are very similar in stability but the Destroyer consistently goes farther. However, I remember how great my Wraiths were when they beat in. I used them for big hyzerflips, turnovers, rollers, and carving lines in the woods. Very trusty disc. If the Destroyer is able to get that understable, I guess I'll have no reason to throw the Wraith anymore. I can already tell the new Star Valks fly similar lines to what I used the beat Wraiths for, so... Might switch over to a Destroyer/Valkyrie combo. I'll figure out by spring time when the weather is nicer and I start playing more.
