Found a local retailer with a Fade Tourney Bag after being highly disapointed with the DGA Shield. Played a 880ish rated round today with this setup at Hornets Nest. Really pleased with the bag, but I need to do some mold-dropping. So other than that, I think I have landed on a bag setup.
174 Z Force - Forehand distance, headwind distance
168 Pro Destrulcan - Flies like a faster TL for me, somewhat neutral if you keep it low
??? Opto Flow - Understable D, flips a little, very predictable fade, tons of glide! Turns much more than anticipated.
175 FR C PD - Thumbers, etc. and workable forehand distance
Just some thoughts here. It looks to me like you have 2 more stable discs, and 2 neutral discs but 4 molds. If you are more comfortable with the Force, you can definitely find a flippy force as well for more neutral shots. The same can be said with the Destrulcan. You could substitute a S/DS Destroyer for the force and have your overstable slot covered by 1 mold that you can continue to learn and love. If you are truly comfortable with it, keep the C PD as it is a utility disc. The reason I'm not mentioning the flow is that I'm not entirely familiar with it and haven't thrown it. One thing I might suggest is to step the drivers down a speed or 2. Maybe attempt a lighter pro wraith with a heavy star wraith. The wraith was my first bid distance driver and holds a special spot in my heart.
Probably going to focus my driver slots on the Flow so I can drop the mold count here. I would like to keep the Force and C PD, but not married to them.
173 Champ Banshee - More of a backup to the FR C PD - slower and does the same stuff
170 Champ Eagle-x - Forehand and some mild headwinds
167 Star Eagle-x - Stable control, workable fairway shots
166 DX Eagle-x - Same as the Star EX, but on less power
171 Champ TL - CFR (not +mold), not used much, neutral flight with predictable fade
168 Star TL - Lost some HSS, holds the line you put it on, like a slower, more predictable roadrunner for me
171 Pro Leopard - Hyzerflips, understable duties
Regarding the Banshee, I also use a Firebird to compliment my CPD so I don't blame you there. Your Eagle X combo w/ the TL's sounds cool! Good flat CFR TL's start out nice and stable so you can have a really workable line around those 2 fairway drivers. Eventually I feel like you might be able to phase the leopard out but I understand the need for a good understable disc. The core of your lineup EX TL sounds good.
Really like my options here with the EX/TL combo. The EX gets most of the fairway action.
179 Vector - Overstable mid, but overlaps with my Rhyno unless I really put some heat on it
178 Z Buzzz - Midrange shots that need more heat than my Axis likes to handle
178 Axis - Midrange shots that need less power and straight flight
177 GL Fuse - Backup to the next Fuse, more stable
177 GL Fuse - Turnover midrange shots
147 DX Shark - Utility mid, goes realllly far on very little power...love this disc
Lot of premium plastic I'm spotting here. The discraft guys are able to pull this off because they have such awesome levels of stability in their mids. I personally feel like you gotta get some DX, X, Dline plastic in your lineup. You need to find a disc and work with it through it's various stages of stability. If you're loving the fuse, keep it as your neutral to understable mid. Keep your utility guy there, and really make a call on your stable/overstable mid slot. I would recommend a Roc and just watch it as it moves through its different stages of wear. This will be more of a learning experience than anything. I'll elaborate on this moreso once we can meet up and catch a round.
Not sure what to do here. I have too many molds. I want to keep the Shark for it's niche shots, but other than that, I would love to find 2 other molds to fill all of these slots. Suggestions?
175 Champ Rhyno - Overstable duties, main approach disc
172 M Ion - Driving putter
170 M Ion - Putting duties
162 DX Polecat - Touch putter for niche shots
I don't see anything wrong here. I usually keep 2 of the same putter at equal stages of wear. Its a mental thing for me. I also keep 2 of the same driving putter for the same reason. Again I am a fan of Mids and Putters in base plastic so you can see them change. Maybe pick up some heavy wizards (they would match your IONs kinda) and use them to watch them change over time.
I think I found what I needed here. All of my putting shots are covered.
