Hi, I've posted my bag before at DGCR, but I thought I would post it here and see what kind of feedback I can get. I am, in my opinion, relatively new to disc golf. I feel like I have alot to learn and a long ways to grow. I am 31 and I started playing seriously/competitively since last year. I'd played a round a summer before that, never gave it much thought. In May last year I played a round with a good friend, and I decided this disc golf thing was alot of fun. I picked up a few discs and played in a tournament in July.
I read up on here and DGCR and tried every different disc I could get my hands on. That really didn't help anything, I would have been much better off sticking with a mold and learning it, but I felt I had to find the right discs for me. At various points last year (and a few this year too) I tried Wizards, Aviars, Ions, Anodes, Zones, Buzzzes, Rocs, Pains, Fuses, Comets, Axii, Vectors, MD2s, Leopards, TeeBirds, JLSs, and PDs. I might even be forgetting a few.
First of all, I throw only RHBH. I decided pretty quick that I had no place throwing high speed drivers. The more discs I tried, I decided I preferred baseline plastics. And eventually I learned mold minimalization, to try to build my bag around certain molds that I could really spend some time with, and hopefully ones that would reward me by both teaching proper form and also being useful discs for me to have learned how to throw for the future. My philosophy is basically to throw the slowest disc I can that the shot will allow. I prefer discs that are "finicky" such that they will punish poor form.
In October of last year I bought a pair of S Proton Ions, 3rd run, non-textured, Stormtroopers. I love them and they have been in the bag ever since. I had picked up Rocs when I first started throwing, but I've been throwing them exclusively as my only midrange since January this year. Recently I have added Comets to compliment them and I am looking forward to my new midrange setup.
Right now, I am basically concentrating on improving my form and I am mainly throw mids and putters only. i plan to add a few Pro Leopards to the bag once I really feel confident with my midrange throws or perhaps just for more competitive rounds. I do have a 175 Pro Leopard lying around but at that weight, it isn't very wieldly for me.
So just for reference, my Rocs are pushing but not surpassing 300 ft. My Ions are somewhat shorter than that. I had been concentrating on straight shots and hyzered shots for the bulk of my time playing disc golf. But recently, I've played with some better players and after watching what they do, I have been working on anhyzers and s-curves.
So without further ado:
2 S Proton Ions- seasoned, putts, approaches, drives, anhyzers, hyzers
173 12x KC Pro Roc- seasoned, hyzers, wind, straight shots
172 DX Roc- main midrange at the moment, working it in, hyzers, straight shots
171 DX Roc- seasoned, straight, anhyzers, great line shaper
172 Z Comet- newer, straight shots, anhyzers
174 X Comet- freshy, straight shots, anhyzers
