I think I was the 2nd guy to mention it. Sadly, my Opto Pain is starting to overlap with it pretty heavily, so the MD2 is going to sit on the bench. I've been throwing the Pain a ton just to work it in and it's getting interesting.

And the recent heat has changed my bag up a lot, it's all about grip for me, and anything star/esp/gold line has pretty much felt like goo in this weather. It's kind of hurt my game a bit, as I've been forced to switch around. I'm almost about to write down a "heat-wave only bag" just to remember what works and what doesn't.
I've honestly always used my zone as a mid, and once I figure out my ion, that too will be used in the same way most likely. The zone is the ultimate utility disc IMO.
You have quite the unique bag, Mr. eagle extraordinaire. No suggestions from me though, maybe see what you can eliminate from the mid spot, will just make your life easier.
Sorry, that pixelated OATman drove me crazy. I'm gonna scheme up something better eventually.
Thinking about some little tweaks to the bag. Distance
: 150 P-PD (rarely goes in, I barely have holes worth bringing it)Drivers
: 175 Champ EX (go-to)
175 S.EX (overstable)
155 Champ Leo (understable)*
172 Champ Banshee (meathook, OH, FR rollers, etc.)
175 S. Starfire (beat to hell) Can't miss FH.Middies
: 177 Opto Pain
177 Opto Fuse (beat)Putters
: 175 Soft Ion (drives, long approaches, used like a mid)
175 Medium Ion (FH)
175 X-link firm Summit (putts)
170 x-link regular Summit (long putts, straddle putts).
*I may replace the Leo with a 150 class Champ EL one day but this disc is just $$ for flicking out of trouble.
Yes, I'm putting in a M Ion exclusively for FH. Gonna take out the Zone to see if I miss it. I've streamlined the bag to get back to basics a bit and b/c it's too fucking hot to stand around and wonder which driver to pull out. I've also put my FH crutch back in, the Starfire. Though my FH is getting a little bit better with the Eagles, that wider rim is just so much comfier for me.
Some discs of various sizes, weight, plastic and mold.
