Build me a Lat64 bag

Postby mojorisin35 » Wed Nov 09, 2011 8:22 pm

I am tired of falling in love with discs that are oop, and expensive to replace. I also have a rant re 17 molds for 1 disc and 18 variations of plastics for that same disc....it is exhausting. So I am considering trading of all my other discs and going with lat 64 and west side discs. I know they are far from perfect but I like what I see and hear so far. So build a bag around lat 64 and west side discs. I can throw 350 disc golf drive and occasionally 400 open field tosses. Thank you for your time and effort

I would suggest:

Flow
Striker
River
xXx
Core
Pure

this is just a start. I'm not well versed in all of their molds. I firmly stand behind the xXx and the Pure. The Core is really cool right now, for me. the rest are cool too but I use other things.

Have you considered Discraft? They are like an older Latitude 64°. Less than perfect but still more "consistent" than Innova. I'm starting to think that half the fun of DG is finding "the right disc".

I have a few lat64 discs in my bag.

My distance driver is the Flow. The longest one for me is my Yellow GL and my Yellow Opto complements that with more overstability. Apparently there's been some inconsistency with the mold, I had a Blue GL that was super flippy, but I've got a few Yellow GL and a few Yellow Optos and they are all great.

For turnover/understable duties I carry a Vision. I've found that my GL and Optos fly the same, but YMMV.

The Fuse is my favorite mid. I carry two optos, one beat in and flippy, the other a bit heavier and newer. I used to carry the core and it's a great neutral mid but I'm carrying an axis in its place and liking it better at the moment. I've thrown Pains as well and they're nice, but I couldn't count on them in the wind which is a large part of carrying an OS mid for me so I ditched it for the Sparkle Aftershock.

The XXX is a meathook and really good if you're looking for that kind of disc. Rivers are a really nice fairway disc, but I don't really see a spot in my bag for one at the moment. Maybe I'll swap out my TD's for the river again. To me the river is a lot like my CE JLS if you've thrown those.

I've thrown a couple Strikers, but for me the PD's just so much better and I've thrown a Havoc a handful of times before losing it so couldn't really comment on that one. Never thrown any of their putters either.

I don't see the ones I do throw going anywhere soon though. The Flow, Vision and Fuse are all fantastic.

Thanx for all of your input. My bag currently consists of
Pro wraith= flow? Tight s curves for me
Pro katana for hyzer flips= west side discs king? Large fles shots wide open max d
X predator=havoc? Wind
Echo star tbird= river? Straight as an arrow
Ce firebird= trident or xxx? Overs table mid nice sharp left hook at the end
Z buzz ss= beat core? Hyzer flip touch shots
Z buzz= core? Mid duties when I need to crank it a little more than the ss
Old school wasp= pain? When it is just a little to windy for the buzz
Z hornet= ? Testing at the moment
Z drone= ? Sharp left turn at short range with a nice skip
Z xtreme- thumber= xxx testing for distance thumbers
Z flick- thumber= trident? My hook thumber precision disc
Ce whippet x- distance thumber= xxx? I need to go high far and long for a thumber

any suggestions as to what is a close replacement? I know that there may be no replacements. What are the gaps in the lat 64 lineup?

Wraith - Flow
Katana - havoc maybe
Pred - maybe a stable striker
Tbird - river
Firebird - xxx
Buzzss - fuse
Buzz - core
Hornet/wasp/drone - pain. It's a lot like a hornet.
Thumber slot - xxx and trident

Those would be my reccs for replacements.

you could have led off with this.

Wraith -> Flow or Riot
Katana -> Bolt?
X Pred -> Striker
Beat TB -> River
CE FB & CE Whippet & Flick & xtreme -> opto xXx (xXx is a thumber madman!)
Hornet/Drone/Wasp -> Pain
Buzzz/BuzzzSS -> Core/Flow
