Papa Got a Brand New Bag!

Postby disc junkie » Tue Apr 24, 2012 10:32 am

172 Champ Destroyer - Main Big D Driver (Stable/Overstable)
170 Champ Teedevil - Same as above just less HSS and LSS
156 Blizz Boss - Over the top shots or any other crazy line I can think of - FUN FUN FUN
175 C-DD - Headwind Distance.

175 CFR C-PD - Most Overstable duties, extreme flex shots especially with FH
175 *TB - Controlled D, so damn straight (glad I revisited the TB)
175 F Ascent - I call this my Teeagle (Straight like a TB with EagleX fade)
175 F Trak - Very workable and awesome for hyzerflips and turnovers. Surprising glide
167 Banshee - Mainly just for FH now that I have added the Ascent. Underrated and Forgotten mold but its definitely $$$

178 Sanny Q-Sent - Overstablish Mid
177 Firm Ibex - Still on the fence with this but when its good its great but when its not its poop. Point and shoot type mid
176 King Cobra - EagleX of mids. Just workable and has lots of glide
171 Z Comet - Still one of my Favorite discs to throw. Finesse shots and sweet turnovers
167 ESP Zone - Trick disc. This disc can do so many different shots its awesome. Great for exaggerated flex lines.

174 F Sole - Main Putter - Putts only
174 F Summit - Stable/Understable for approaches and drives. Also my long range putter
173 M Warlock - Just Stable. Used for drives and approaches where I want forced turnovers or mainly just STRAIGHT shots with pretty much no fade
171 F Ridge - Just added for re-testing. Planned to use for drives and approaches mainly when windy. Thinking itll be straight with dependable fade

Dude, no joke. Vibram is totally a contender now. When they first came out with the Ascent I was all like "Sweeeeet! Maybe now they'll have a disc that glides!" and... Nope. That totally crushed my spirits. THEN the Trak came out. ZOMG, what a difference. Took me months to acclimate to it though because it had a pretty rocky start which I almost gave up on. Now, I freaking love that disc.

Trak: Tits.
Ibex: Tits.
Sole: Tits.

They've got my attention now for reals.
I am dumb.

...and a drama queen.

The obex is tits as well. I just don't like the Mediums as they turn into blowflys I'm the Tx heat.

The Trak is awesome and the only reason they aren't in my tourney bag is I just know and love my EagleL too much. I'm slowly making the transition over to the Trak maybe next tourney season.

I seriously didn't really care for Vibram when I was testing for them when they first started but now they have improved their materials and have put out some solid molds. I'm excited for their future.

My only concern is the durability of the drivers in the Firm blend as they don't take to tree hits very well.

Current set up. Slimmed up a bit.


166 *Destroyer - Bottom Stamp - Big D, Flex Shots and stuff with skip finishes.
168 *Teedevil - Just like a seasoned Destroyer off the shelf.

170 CPD - Non Plus Mold - Pretty much a modern day candy KC Pro TB. Becoming my main thrower.
172 CPD - Non Plus Mold - Same Profile as CFR but less stable. Flies similar to the above PD but faster due to profile, also fades harder.
175 SFD - This disc is like a TL and Leopard had a baby. I LOVE this disc and is very useful at all power levels and distances
166 SFD - Stupid Straight and still new enough to hold all lines

178 06 Champ Roc - Same as below just more stable
178 *Roc+ - Main Mid. Pretty much does it all
180 Z Comet - Stable and very useful for many shots
170 Z Comet - Beat and a hyzer flip/turnover beauty
175 Opto Pure - Drive and approach tweener between mids and putters. laser beam straight
168 ESP Zone - Utility disc

174 F Sole - Main Putter
172 F Ridge - Stable/Overstableish Drives, Approaches and headwind putts
176 F Summit - Stable/Understableish Drives, Approaches and long range putts

I really wish I didn't read this, I've been thinking of cheating on my Teebirds with this disc and after reading this I think you've pushed me over the edge!

Those are pretty cool discs and the windier it gets the better they become.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

How does the Mercy putt and drive vs the Pure? The Opto Pure putts well better in pitch putting than lasers but lasers are fine too.
