Riding in a Kelly Green Chimp

Drivers:
P-PD 175 New
S-PD 175 Seasoned
Z-Predator 165 New
ESP Cyclone 175 Seasoned

Utility Discs:
Opto XXX 171 Seasoned
X-XL 175 Seasoned

Mids:
Z-Wasp 177 New
DX Roc 180 Seasoned
DX Roc 170 Seasoned

Putters:
Soft Challenger 166 - Main putter
Soft Challenger 177 - Drives and Approches

I have been throwing Backhand and Forehand at consistent distances of 350-380ft this spring.

I have some over lap with the XXX and Pred. but they serve different purposes in my bag and are truly different discs. The XXX is for all sorts of trick shots, where the Pred. is my reliable Hyzer and forehand driver. The Z Wasp is my poor mans Champ Roc. The XL serves as a disc I use when I have little room for reaching back, such as being in the brush or against some trees. PDs are my Distance Drivers and the Cyclone is my disc of choice for wooded fairways.

a lot of people will call Overlap with your Pred in there. I disagree, I feel like the xXx is way too overstable to be useful at anything other than utility shots. the Pred is more of a distance OS disc. I agree about the z-wasp being the poor man's champ roc.

your bag looks good.

I agree, that's a sexy bag.

I am curious what you use for long turnovers. I'd use that Cyclone for that shot, but since you're using it for tight fairways, I'm guessing you're hyzer flipping it? I've never thrown an ESP 'clone, so maybe it's more stable than my X plastics are.

ESP clones are more stable than their X counterparts. But they are not like the Z ones. They are a great disc if you want your clones to stay stable longer. I use the cyclone and the P-PD for tunover shots. Both are very controllable, but the PD is longer. I just got it from a friend a few weeks ago and I like it a lot.

I should add that I have been throwing more forehand also. So that is why I don't have a truly understable disc. I also like to force stable discs to turn over as oppose to having understable discs flip naturally.

Added a beat comet in a mystery plastic, probably X and a DX leopard. Both fill the anhyzer roll I was lacking. Thanks Sir Ralph.

I throw both forehand and backhand so most shots are covered.

QJLS 173 9.5/10
QJLS 175 7/10
MJLS 166 8/10
