Is there a particular reason you were aiming for a Discraft sponsorship instead of Innova? Seems like you'd be better suited to Innova since your mixed bag dropped nine of 11 Discraft molds and replaced them all with Innova/Discmania.

I would love to play for either company, but since I'm still in grad school I can't oblige anyone a set list of tournaments to attend. So since I wouldn't be doing either company a service by playing for them, I'd rather just throw what I'm used to (and have bins and bins of backups of).

2 discs really welcomed me back today
A. JK Aviar - my old 2 1/2 year putter was lights out today.
B. PD - I don't need wraiths or surges when I have a PD. That disc compliments my playing style ridiculously well.

New setup is going well. Heres what I'm working with at the moment.

Putters:
JK's for putting
P2's for approaching
CE Rhyno for wind fighting

Mids:
2x ESP Comet
2x Roc (one new, one straight)
CMD2 - This thing is balls to the wall awesome

Fairway Drivers:
Leopard
2 SPD
Predator

Distance Drivers
Valkerie (entertaining a C-TD)
Nuke/Boss (still deciding which I like better these days)
PD2/Force (still deciding which I like better these days)

12 Molds - getting a little complex
17 - 20 discs at one time

After throwing valkyries for a long time and then giving them a break the C-TD is fantastic. It seems to be a little easier to flip up flat from hyzer than a valkyrie but also has a good fade at the end of it's flight for nice consistency. I am really liking them.

CE Rhyno - Overstable

Midranges:
3rd Run ESP Comets X 2 - General line shaping
KC Roc X 2 - Different shots, stall hyzers, stall anhyzers

Fairway Drivers:
Leopard - Workable and a little shorter than my PD's for low line tunnel shots and what not
S-PD's X 3- from thrashed to brand new

Distance Drivers:
Boss X 2 - One stable new one and one used up first run (Thinking about testing the waters on some destroyers again... haven't thrown them in forever)
C-PD2 - Overstable Duties and wind fighting

Utility:
Glow Champ Firebird (the flat kind) - Thumbers, spike hyzers, sidearms, sidearm rollers.

so I suffered a casualty recently...

I lost my favorite ce leopard. This thing got me through worlds in 2010 and was my workhorse leopard. I don't have anything like it anymore so I decided it'd be good to try something new maybe (and something that wasn't so expensive to replace).

Here is the new bag:
2 KC Aviars - Putting
1 JK and 1 KC for driving
Zone (I'm trying it again in place of the ce rhyno)

2 ESP Comets
2 Rocs

CTD (in place of the leopard)
3 PD's

Boss x 2
C - PD2

Glow Champ Firebird

I don't have a C TD but do have S TDs and they are way faster than Leos and fade more and have a higher power requirement.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

It is definitely faster, but I think it will work fine.

I have successfully powered it down. Its also 168

I'm totally on board with simplifying and minimizing molds now that the wind has died downin DFW. At the moment, I'm using 3 discs: aviar; roc, mini.

For certain corses and/or conditions, I think I might still use a hyzer flip and roller disc (e.g., leopard) and a wind and overhead disc (e.g., firebird), but that's basically it.
:p

Well I took the bosses out at the moment to throw some C-DD2's just for the fun of it. I only use bosses for wide open shots; everything else the PDs are used for. Some people up here in the mountains and down in Charlotte have really been liking them, so why not jump on board :)

Putters:
2x KC's - for putting
1 JK - for driving
1 KC - for driving
Zone - Overstable putter thing

Midranges:
2x ESP Comet - 1 flippy / 1 new
2x Roc - 1 straight / 1 new
CMD2 - Fun and a little farther than both in wind

Fairway Drivers:
C-TD - Breaking in really nicely and very controllable
3x PD - Thrashed to brand new
Firebird - Utility overstable

Distance Drivers:
2x DD2 - 1 new / 1 used
PD2 - Wind fight'n

11 Molds - Very controllable
18 Discs - Bags feelin light again :)

I find the DD2's to have a slightly lower power requirement than a boss. Bosses do vary a lot in stability though. I throw the E* DD2s obviously but because of my comfort with my Wraiths I only throw the DD2 about 1-2 shots per round, and that only on longer/open courses. I aced at Eastway with a Wraith btw. That hole would be a crush with a C-TD (440', even if a bit downhill).

Just stopping in to let you guys know that I'm liking the CDD2's still.

For a natural hyzer thrower, I'm liking these right out of the box because they are pretty controllable from hyzer. Popped flat, they tend to turn a bit, but popped hyzer I'm getting some nice lines with them with a predictable fade at the end of the flight. I've been told by a few people that this sweet spot won't last for a long time, so I'm kinda waiting to see what they do once beaten in a bit more.

Time will tell.

Do you find you have a gap in between your rocs and PDs?
