Well, I've had a rough golfing weekend. Lost 3 discs at two courses, Bartlett and Streamwood, including my most stable Roc, and one of the two main ones I throw, the real pretty black one that's laser straight. Luckily I have a white/purple KC Pro Roc that's exactly the same, but I loved the confidence of having two almost identical midranges. I also lost my nicely seasoned S-PD, the 167g one, which is sad, because I have just one more S-PD and it definitely is too fresh to finish as straight as the one I lost. Hopefully somebody finds it and calls.
I did get two new discs from a local plastic collector/golf buddy. He found an interesting Widye DX San Marino Roc that I picked up on the cheap because it was an interesting DX/Star blend, and it feels real stable when I toss it, moreso than the beat Rocs I have in my bag besides it, anyway.
Also in my neverending quest for the putter of my dreams, he put me on to Millenium Omegas, and sold me a 1.30 run black SuperSoft, which is absolutely dreamy to the touch, and I performed great with it today, so I think that'll be my main putting putter until I figure out a reason to not like it like I do with every putter. The Classic Rocs are staying in my bag just because they're so straight, and real easy to drive and take runs at the chains with from outside 50'.
As it stands:
Discmania S-DD - 171g - I don't actually ever throw this really. I suppose it's there for max D?
Discmania S-CD - 174g - I can get this out to about 300-320 on an anny line. It's much like the disc below, except more stable. Wind anny's, S shots, etc.
Discmania D-CD - 172g - Beat to hell, flips up and over from a slight hyzer, great for when I ne4ed an easy driver anhyzer at about 300ft or a bit longer.
Discmania C-PD - 168g - Pretty fresh, and feels great. I use it for control drives in the wind, or when I need a real big hyzer.
Discmania S-PD Freak - 167g - Fresh, flies real nice in light-medium wind, finishes hard at 330-350ft or so, in gameplay. Easy to shape hyzer lines with.
Discmania P-PD Freak - 171g - Not sure why this is here to be honest. Pretty beat, never throw it in game. Kinda S curves if thrown slightly hyzer or flat.
Innova DX/Star Blend San Marino Roc - 178ish? - Haven't weighed it, but it's pretty nicely stable to overstable, and brand new.
Innova KC Pro Roc - 176g - Lightly seasoned. Flies and finishes pretty straight except in big wind or when my torque comes out for no reason.
Innova KC Pro Roc - 177g - A little more beat than the above. Flips to a light turn from flat, or to flat from hyzer. Pretty glidy. Plus, it's pink.
Innova KC Pro Roc - 179g - Most beat of the KCs. Turns hard, holds an anny line easily, or flips to flat from a pretty good hyzer start.
Innova DX Rancho Roc - 180g - Found this with no digits, 2010 ZBoaz Open stamp. Beat all to shit. Turns and glides so damn pretty and it's real flat. Like a buzzz.
(All the KCs are 12x, nothing special. Just love the feel of the plastic. I'm an addict. 3 are white, one of which has a purple stamp, one is black, one is pink.)
Innova KC Pro Aviar - 176g - Seasoned, driving/upshot putter. Holds an anny pretty good, flies dead straight off a flat drive without much flippiness.
Innova KC Pro Aviar - 174g - Newer, driving/upshot putter. Both of these get used on anything shorter than 250' off the tee. This one's more stable, holds a hyzer line well.
Discraft Pro-D Banger GT - 175g - More stable, strictly upshots and weird outshots where I need a short, hard fade. This is in flux, I think.
Discmania P-line P1 Maniac - 176g - Sentimental value. I don't like soft putters, I don't think, but this is the first disc I ever bought. It's in the bag just because.
Innova DX Classic Roc - 171g - Use it when I need laser straight 250ft and shorter drives or upshots, or slight hyzers or anhyzers.
Innova DX Classic Roc - 176g - Same as the above. Slightly beefier due to the weight and PLH.
Millenium 1.30 Run SuperSoft Omega - Putting. This one's new to me, but it feels so damn good in the hand, and while I normally don't dig on soft putters, this one hits chains more than any of my others.
So, since I'm down a couple midranges and a driver, I could use some suggestions. I've been thinking of revamping my midrange game, considering while Rocs are versatile, they do take more effort than some other midranges I've thrown to get the same distances out of them, and my favorite (and the most popularly sold) plastic they come in beats up too quickly to keep an overstable/wind resistant one in my bag for very long. I want to see about maybe lowering the number of Rocs I'm carrying in favor of another midrange to cover the wind/overstable slot, and letting a couple Rocs cover my understable/turning/straight stable shots for the midrange game.
I've been desperate to try a C-MD2 from Discmania, just for the combination of durability, and being a slightly more stable Buzzz from what I've read. Is that a feasible option for me? Any other ideas? The stuff I'm willing to remove/don't throw ingame to make room for more useful shit would be at least one of the KC Rocs, the Banger, the P1 and the DD. Everything else seems to have its place for me, and sees use during my average round.
