It's a good bag. I've taken the Aftershock and the Fuse out and tossed in a Vector, a few old dx Rocs and a champ Leopard. I love Leopards! And lately I've been working and digging the Vector too, especially flicking it. The Aftershock's lil bead tore my finger up flicking it. I want to try an Ion but I have so many Warlocks and there isn't anything wrong with my game throwing Warlocks. So, unless the Warlock gets discontinued and my stash disappears... I probably won't be changing putters anytime soon.

Good to see you're set on the putter slot (wish I could say that for myself), that can be a problem for a lot of people, knowing what the best disc is for you for approaches and putts. One of my two wizards has been phenomenal and sometimes I'll throw a magnet into the mix. Some people say that switching around too much can mess up your game, but so far, everything has acted nearly identical while inside the circle so my job now is to find out which of my putters is the best for long approach shots and off of the tee.

you should be able to maintain so long as you change up to a different putter of similar flight characteristics. i kill it with ions and wizards. put a magic or apx in my hands and watch me flop around like a fish out of water until i practice for a couple weeks with it.

How long have you had the silverback LJ? And how has it been holding up? I know the wait with orders from GB can be frustrating but it seems to be worth it if you aren't in dire need of a bag.

does your worn P PD overlap your leopard at all, or do they have completely different purposes or distances?

2 full seasons and too many rounds to count. It's only seen the snow once, however, but plenty of rain and mud. The only thing wrong is that my iron ons are starting to peel off :(

I don't push my mids out all that far, so I put the Leopard in as a comfort disc. If the shot is over 300 I'm probably going to throw a Leopard or PD or most likely a Predator if I can get away with it. I have some overlap in my bag and I'm perfectly content with it. The star Wraith and S-PD overlap a bit. The Leopard and worn P-PD overlap a bit and the worn Z-Pred shares duties and shot similarities with all four of those.

The Leopard and P-PD work nearly identical lines with the PD being 30' or so longer on the same line. The Leopard handles a stall a lil better because it's not as nose sensative. They both glide for days and range pretty well for faster discs.

p.s. my wishlist = Discraft to start punching out x-Predators again! I could conceiveably throw an all Predator/Warlock bag. Now that's minimalism!

I want to throw a Sword, Boatman, King, the ABC mids and an MD2. So many discs, so little time. Having a job and a family really gets in the way of spending all day at the park... :P

You'll like the king, I don't have a power arm by any means and it added easy distance right off the bat. I've never had a problem with wide rims on discs, so if you're a person that can also get around that easily then it should feel pretty comfortable. I'd imagine that it will be even better once I get it to beat in more.

I've also been meaning to try out the sword and boatman, love VIP plastic, and have also seen some pretty good reviews on the two.

Droped the PD's, the Wraiths and the xXx. I don't plan on playing in any tournaments and about the most serious I get around here is Dollar singles/doubles.

I replaced the Wraiths with a pink esp Nuke and a pink x Nuke. The x Nuke is poppy top and flat bombs. It probably won't last long but it crushes right now.

I replaced the PD's with OLF's, 2 MOLF and 1 QOLF. Love them. And all three are 1.1's.

I've also droped in an 11x Firebird and I've been throwing the 2011 Discraft Ace Race disc, I love it. It does 200' with a flick of the wrist... lol.

Droped the Vector and put my rocs and Aftershock back in.

so...

1 - 175g blue 11x champ Firebird

2 - 174g reddish/orange z Predators

1 - 172g pink esp Nuke
1 - 170g pink x Nuke

1 - 173g orange QOLF
1 - 171g white MOLF 8/10
1 - 171g orange MOLF 6/10

3 - 180g white Rocs 7-6-4.5/10

1 - 180g dayglow green proline Aftershock 9/10

3 - 175g blue Warlocks

1 - 179g peach esp 2011 Ace Race disc (not pdga approved but fun as hell, great catch disc too)

This thread title is misleading. I have nothing to do with this bag.

On a Millennium kick lately. Dig the sparkle sparkle Quasar, picked up a couple m Astras and a QJLS. Took my Rocs out to throw some MD2's. And And And... I picked up a soft and medium Ion.
