Yo!

My bag has changed a bit from the get-go. And it still keeps on changing, why cant I just K.I.S.S?

Right now it looks like this:

Putters:
FR-D-P2 170g, for putting only.
FR-D-P2 175g, beat, for upshots and straight shots, max 195'.
D-P2 Psycho 175g, for driving, max 245'.
Basic Jokeri 175g, very reliable in wind, max 245'.

Midrange:
FR-P-MD2 172g, turnovers and annie bombs, max 310'.
Premium Midari 177g, straight shots, hyzers and against moderate winds, max 310.

Drivers:
FR-C-TD 175g, flex shots and long annies, max d depends on situation.
Star TL 175g, straight shots, tunnel shots, max 360'.
S-PD Freak 175g, this should be my go-to driver for max 400' shots, but been having so much problems with it...
ES-DS 172g, Long drives, max 460'.
C-PD2 175g, This is my go-to driver at the moment, so reliable to max 400', but the fade is tricky...


This is pretty much my setup. The only problem at the moment is my PDs. If I throw them gently like I do my TLs, they wont go anywhere. If I power them, I lose a lot of accuracy and sometimes get terrible OAT wobble.
My PD2 is my PD at the moment, but the room it needs is just so much... So at the moment I´m kinda at a loss of what to throw for those basic 400 footers.
I´m training every day to get rid of my OAT and accuracy problem, but my hand is sore and so far I think I´ve actually gotten worse...

I don't think there's anything wrong with your bag, but you clearly need to rework your throw. Good luck with the training.

Do you have any lighter weight PD's? I would try throwing a lighter disc for max d.

Aaaaaaand updating.

So I worked my ass off to get rid of the OAT wobble wobble problem, and it seems to have paid off.
Which let to narrowing down my molds a bit. Also I decided to give some old beat up discs a whack at it again.

And for the moment it goes a little something like this:

Putters:
frD-P2 170g - Inside the circle "Main putter MUST be red."
frD-P2 175g - Really beat, jump putts and upshots. "This is probably closer to a P1"
psychoD-P2 175g - Off the tee, long upshots. "Soft and gummy <3."
Premium Jokeri 175g - Short forearms and extreme winds. "Love/Hate relationship"

Midranges:
frP-MD2 172g - Beat. Anhyzers and turnovers. "The bedrock of my bag."
C-MD2 180g - Straightness. "Still amazed by how far this thing goes."
S-FB 175g - REALLY overstable Firebird, doesnt go over 330' with my arm, so I´ll list it as a midrange. :) "What wind?"

Drivers:
frC-TD 175g - Turnovers and anhyzers. "Forearm, shmorearm"
frS-PD 175g - Really beat. Slight turnovers and standing still shots. "This disc looks like crap."
frS-PD 169g - Slightly beat. Long straight shots. "One of my first discs."
frS-PD 175g - New. Long hyzers and headwindy duty. "Cashmoney."
E*-DS 172g - Maximum distance. "Need moar of these"
C-PD2 175g - Controlled drives with fade, windy duty with fade. "Mr. Dependable"


I had to kick out the MIDARi. The premium plastic MIDARi starts out really great, and becomes a lovely, ultra-straight no fade disc really fast...unofortunately it cruises by that sweet spot really fast too. And keeps on cruising to the right. Now this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I already have the frP-MD2 for that particular job.
So I dug my C-MD2s back to the bag. And what do you know, with my OAT problem greatly diminished, they're grrreat! And with the C-MD2s, TL became pretty much obsolete, since these things are sneaky long. :shock:

Also the basic Jokeri had to go. Its a lovely disc, but I hate how they bend and bubble when I hit a tree...and I do that a lot. :oops:


Only problem now is, that I have 13 discs in my bag....that cant be good luck. Does a mini count as a disc? :lol:

Oh and I almost forgot. I´m putting together a led-bag. :idea:
Now since most of my discs are S-line, I cant use them efficiently with leds, so I´ll need champion type plastics.
And also I´m thinking of doing all my shots standing still, due to winter, so I wont be needing any extra overstable discs.

I was thinking of keeping it REALLY simple. Just 3 clear discs.
Sadly I´ve only thought of two, and I´m not even sure of the second one. So suggestions are more than welcome. :)

1. Transparent ION 175g. I think it would be the best clear disc to replace my P2s.

2. C-MD2, Champion Leopard or ???

3. ???
