Alright all you jedi masters, I've been having a conundrum with my understable fairway slot so I'd like some input. For reference I'm 21and have been playing for a year and a half. I've measured my distances with a measuring wheel at 400 avg/415 max with a wraith and 370-380ish with champ teebirds. I'm looking to jump up to destroyers in the next few months in place of the wraiths.
Like I said, my problem slot is my flippy fairway. I'm looking for the best compliment to my teebirds and mids. Since I started I had been using a star leopard that hasnt been all that understable. I know I could get a pro leo to pair with the star and I would be set, but I'm wondering if I'm not better off using a different mold entirely. From what I've read, people use leopards a lot for lazer shots in the woods and similar long midrange types of shots (especially paired with rocs as leopards can work similar lines but longer). I tend to use a buzzz for all these types of shots and to top that off, the buzzz and fuse are slightly longer mids so I wonder if leopard doesnt clash with long mids like these. I had the idea to throw valks in for that slot after seeing all the newer companies releasing fairways with 1.9 rims like the valk. In addition, all the holes that I would throw a leopard turnover seem to able to be done with a valk as well. I've also read about rivers being longer leopards and longer leo sounds like valk, but is the valk too long? I found a river recently but that one is roadrunner flippy and Valks and sidewinders are also easier to come by. I'm in total indecision about what to do with this slot. Leopards, beat valks/sidewinders, rivers, I've even thought about trying dx teebirds for this. However, I'm not sure how dx would hold up to the Charlotte woods. Any input would be much appreciated.
• 172 Z Force – Windy day Max D and Power Hyzers
• 175 Champ Wraith – More stable than the star. Will go straight and fade.
• 175 Star Wraith - seasoned and domey – I throw this for big S shots or hyzer flips on more open holes.
• 175 Thrashed Star Wraith – Big hyzer flips and turnovers
• 172 12x Firebird – Overstable Fairway: Headwind driver and beef hyzers. I don’t use this often as Charlotte courses are mostly in the woods and I feel the Teebirds cover most of my shots. Tends to stay at home unless its really windy.
• 175 Totem Teebird – More stable fairway: I keep this one in there for big hyzers and when I want more fade that the beat bird will give me.
• 170 champ 11x Teebird seasoned – stable control driver: Sniper Rifle
• 168 Champ Valkyrie - Hyzer flips, flat turnovers
167 Star Valkyrie beat - Hyzer flip to turn.
• 176 First Run Vector – Overstable mid shots, hard hyzers, spikes, wind, or a shot that just needs to dump out at the end more than a buzzz will
• 177 Z Buzzz seasoned – Main stable mid. All straight shots and smooth hyzers
•180 Glow Buzzz - beafier than the main buzzz.
170 Opto Fuse (flippy): Hyzer flips, annys, and turnovers
177 opto Fuse (more stable): Can crank on this one more the other
• 175 SM 12x KC pro Aviar- All putting duties.
