Backhand Max D / everyday course D - Ion 390/360, Axis 410/385, JLS 440/410, OLF 475/440, Quasar 505/475
Forehand Max D / everyday course D - Ion 260/220, Axis 330/275, JLS 350/320, OLF 400/350, DD 410/375
175 S Ion - go to approach and putter driver disc
171 S Ion - Putts, some short approaches I want to sink
164 M Ion - Drives and ups where I want the extra glide, low ceiling putts (e.g. 60' out and can't throw the putt higher than the top of the basket due to branches)
178 GL Fuse - Undecided on this. I can throw it 375' on a straight line, which sucks because I want it to be my turnover mid. Overlaps with my flat Axis...will consider giving it some tree love and seeing if that helps.
178 Glow Axis - Flat, neutral, sexy ass flights.
178 Glow Axis - Slight dome, neutral for 90% of the flight, then a gentle fade out.
179 Glow Vector - Moderately overstable mid. Headwind approaches, short and quick to drop hyzer approaches, control hyzer drives etc.
175 SJLS - Worn, bit of turn, very neutral and controllable. Been playing around with carrying a second JLS or my QJLS misprint but none of them have remained in the bag so far. I like this disc for long anhyzers, straight rollers, low ceiling FH approach and FH drives in the 275-335' area.
175? XXX - Slightly used, still very OS. Utility shit.
175 1.2 SOLF - Seasoned, does a nice hyzer flip BH, very straight FH drives at 75% power. It's my go to FH driving disc for everything but super low lines and max D, I'm very comfortable flicking it anywhere in the 325-375' range most days, some days a little shorter due to OAT and stuff. Powers down well either throwing style, and glides very nice.
175 1.2 QOLF - More overstable OLF. My 2nd OLF slot has been a revolving door ever since that SOLF beat in to around where my favorite 1.1 QOLF is. I took that one out for now since it's redundant and I don't want to risk losing it int he snow should we ever get some here in Ohio. This one worked well today so maybe it'll stay.
171 SDD - Just put it back in today for 1 reason: low line drive FH shots. I know it's a little faster than I should be throwing at my FH power level but I get such beautiful shots with it. Shots mere feet off the ground that fly dead straight, then have a nice fade and skip at the end. It fights wind better than my OLF's too and my Quasars are way too much for my FH. I feel kind of guilty about throwing such a fast and stable disc FH but it alone is giving my FH birdie oppurtunities I wouldn't otherwise have. I will continue using the JLS / OLF for most FH drives and keep working my Axis and Ion FH too so I get better form.
171 Q Quasar - Flashing removed, slight high speed turn, workable like a seasoned OLF. First disc I hit 500 with
Feels slightly champystar. Absolute max D, long distance line shaping, low ceiling drives.
175 Q Quasar - Flashing on, stiffer more opaque plastic. Doesn't have high speed turn. Headwind max D, long shots that must not turn, big skips, low line drives etc.
There are a few areas I plan on doing some more experimenting. I'm getting a 168 S Ion to try out for putts since I enjoy putting with the 164 M as far as weight goes but don't like putting with M Ions. I just love the glide. I have an opto XXX coming in the mail to test out against my Preds which I dropped from my bag because I honestly never ever throw them, I can work my fresh 1.2 OLF's and 175 Quasars on similar long lines and the Vector has approaches and short drives covered, but I know I need a true overstable driver for monster headwinds and other utility shots. Also like I mentioned the Fuse I'm not crazy about. They feel nice in the hand, have great glide and are super smooth in their flight but mine isn't turning as easily as I would like. Might just need some beating in.
I'm going to try to get a bigger bag so I can carry more of a mold at a given time. I'd probably roll with 3 OLF's, add a FR domey Vector for hoggish short shots and add a fresh JLS and more beat JLS.
I've been very happy with my bag lately and haven't felt like I've been lacking anything except once a round or so I might wish I had a flippier Fuse / JLS on me, but in general I've replaced turnovers and anhyzers with my FH shot. I've put a lot of work into my FH the past 6 months or so and it's paying off. I've gotten incredibly consistent in the under 375' range. It's when I try to go for max D with it I end up screwing up my form. I think when I try to FH for max D I'm getting into the bad habit of using all arm and no body. If I can incorporate body rotation into my FH I will hit 400' consistently easily.
Putting is actually the strongest part of my game these past few rounds. Been absolutely killing it with putts.
Going to compete this year too. I've been throwing well so I'm going to get a PDGA membership and test out the Open division and see how badly I can get my ass kicked. I want to try and make it to a big tourney in my area and play in the same division as the top, top pros so I can see in person just how much work I have to get to their level. I was joking with my friend today, saying basically "Man, we have some good rounds, but when I watch the top Pro's throw, it's like if you took our best shots out here and made a highlight reel" They have such absurd consistency, that's what I'm going to have to get.
