Ok so i have made a few more changes to the bag.

Distance drivers: 2-172 Z Nukes(1 new, 1 seasoned) 2-170 ESP Nukes(1 new, 1 flippy)

OS driver: 174 z Predator, 172 ESP Predator (beat up & flippy), 174 ESP Avenger(quickly becoming a workhorse)

Fairways: 170 z XL(straight) , 171 esp XL(s shot), 170 x XL(flippy)

Mids: 176 esp meteor, 178 z comet, 172 z buzz, 173 Z Hornet (Replaced the FLX Drone and seems a bit longer)

Putters: 2 173 Zero Line Pures (for putting-new to the bag), 174 Grip Line Pure(straight to anhyzer approaches),174 esp zone

Utilities: 172 z predator(thumbers), 168 esp avenger ss (roller)

I am really liking the ESP Avenger as it is quite a bit more stable into headwinds then i previously remember. I think i may add a Z version soon. The Pure putters have been an amazing addition to my short game. Grip Line Pure is a solid driving putter. The Zero line are great for putting in all conditions. Where have you been my entire disc golf putting career?! Lol.

Also tried some other Latitude 64 discs today, thanks to a buddy. Halo, River, Havoc, Trident, Pain all solid discs. Gold and Opto plastic feel pretty sweet! I was really impressed with how straight the River was. I was absolutely crushing the Pain. Watch out all my Discraft stuff, your spot in the bag is now open to some competition. Any other suggestions on Latitude 64 disc i should try that could replace what I currently have in the bag?

The Pain is a tasty piece of plastic. I am currently using a GL Pain and GL Fuse for my mid combo. Lat makes some great plastic. The one thing I have noticed is my mixed bag isnt as mixed as it use to be.

Ok so the bag is settling in nicely for the summer. The 3 nukes are still the goto distance drivers. The 3 xls still the fairway drivers. Predators still holding down the os duties, with the flippy esp filling that distance gap between my xls and nukes. The drone is back in for os mid duties. Buzz, comet and meteor round out the mid line-up. Zone, gripline pure handle the putter driving/approach duties, with the 2 zerolines still putting. Still testing the opto pain, added x nuke and 2nd esp predator.

So after watching some top pros play in des moines over the weekend, i felt some simplification was in order.
Drivers:
4 nukes(2-z, 1-esp, 1-x)
4 preds(2-z, 2-esp)
3 xls(z, esp, x)
Mids:
1 flx drone
2 z buzzes(1 new, 1 beat)
Putters:
1 esp zone
3 pures(1 grip, 2 zero)
Down to just 7 molds, and i may go to just one putter mold with some glow wizards. I have one i've been trying out with more of a pitch putt style and really seems to be working well for me.

I guess you didn't like the Avenger after all.

I agree that Pures aren't the best putting putters but they are awesome off the tee.

Well that all depends, this year's putting world champ putts with pures. Any piece of bread is just fine for putting as long as it's not big diameter or stupidly slick plastic, you just need to do it.

I personally disliked putting with the pure as well, but they were nice for spin putts.

I did like the avenger, but just like the predator better. More useful for me. Overhand shots are big part of my game. The preds work great for that and i can still throw them in similar sitiations as the avenger. Once i got the esp seasoned it has been my workhorse driver. As for the pures, like them. Just more consistant pitch putting with glow wizards.

So came across a pro-d magnet and been practicing all week with it. Remembering why i loved this putter so much when i first started playing. Thinking about putting it back in the bag permanently! May replace the wizards soon. Would like to find a z version, but i know they are hard to come by.

Fairways-3 predators(z new, z seasoned, esp flippy)-3 xls(1 each z, esp, x)
Mids-flx drone, z wasp, z buzz, z comet, esp meteor
Putters- z zone, z challenger, d challenger, 2 elite x soft challengers
Utility-esp avengers ss

Ok so finally getting a few rounds in. Bag has been getting simpler as I am down to just 8 molds. The mid line-up is down to just the wasp and comet. Drivers have no changes. Swapped out soft challengers for a couple of firm, chalky feeling team stamp d challengers since the weather is reasonably warm now. No other changes to report.

Ok it has been a long while since my last bag update. A few changes have been made to say the least. Lol.
Distance drivers:
174 z force (new) overstable for flick drives and headwinds
2 x 174 z forces (seasoned) straight stable for primary backhand distance drivers
172 esp force (seasoned) turning stable distance driver
173 esp nuke (seasoned) flippy max distance/long turnover/tailwind driver
Fairway drivers:
175 z predator (new) overstable meat hook for flicks/thumbers/tomahawks (more of a utilty)
172 z predator (seasoned) straight stable headwind fairway
168 z predator (seasoned) turning stable primary fairway
173 esp predator (seasoned) flippy fairway, hyzer flip shots
172 x XL (seasoned) super flippy, tailwind, roller
Mid-ranges:
175 Evo blaze (new) overstable meat hook for headwinds/flicks/thumbers/skip approaches (another utility type disc)
175 Evo blaze (seasoned) straight stable mid
3 x 174 S blaze ( new currently) all slightly overstable but working all 3 into seasoned straight turning mid slot
178 z comet (new) super straight mid
176 x comet (seasoned) super flippy mid
Putters:
174 esp zone (seasoned) still overstable for headwinds and hyzer approaches
175 s wizard (new) stable approaches and putter drives
175 s wizard (seasoned) understable for turnovers and hyzer flip shots
2 x 175 ss magics (new) solely used for putting

I switched to forces for more reliable stability with my flick shots and better grip with the slightly smaller rim then the nuke. It was also the same reason I switched my mid to the blaze. I just like the grip for flicks and overall every other mid shot. I wend back to wizards because i like S plastic better then pro D and the magic has been great for me putting.
