Yep I plan on getting one. I picked up an Excel Clutch and have been putting with it. Even the Icon Clutch putts great for a premium blend.

I have been blown away by the Rival and Patriot. For one the plastic just won't seem to beat up, and the 160s Icon plastic is amazing. Rival is like a stable QJLS or mini QOLF. The Patriot flies exactly like my seasoned QJ I carried for 3 years and have been scared of losing. I have 4 Icon patriots in various weights/colors and they all fly the exact same

Its been a seamless switch this first week from Millennium as most of the discs had near identical flights to stuff I threw from Millennium/Innova. Just blown away at how everything regardless of plastic flies the same. Not having to hunt for the best PLH has been nice. Excited to get a chance to rep Legacy.

Oh yeah been throwing a gravity ghost. Hits lots of trees and plenty of texas rocks. A KC Roc gets to 8/10 in like a week here in texas, this Gravity Ghost still looks 10/10. Loving it

Are they going to let you keep a QMS / OLF in your bag?

I love my patriots and rivals. The stiff, yellow icon Patriots have extra stability and are good for a strong finish.

I haven't thrown a gravity ghost yet. Been wanting too though.

No clue. Still kind of in limbo land. Will find out more in the next week or two

Lets just say there has been conversations of this. I reached out to them and they said yes. But there hasn't been anything official outside of an email.

Still technically under contract with Millennium until further notice...

Maybe you can start carrying some newer plastic if they pick you up...

zj's bag looks like a rental bin.

Some of it definitely was part of a used bin stash I had going

But its pretty freaking amazing that the used discs I am using fly almost identical to the new ones I picked up. Central Texas terrain isn't kind to plastic

Current setup

Clutch Excel - main putter. want to switch to a Protege
Clutch Icon - driving putter, also some putts depending on grip/humidity
Clozer Gravity - straight to turnover driver. Long spin putts
Clozer Protege - driving putter. overlaps with Clutch Icon. want to put in a clozer icon here

CE QMS - want want want a Gauge to replace this
Gravity Ghost - one of the best mids I have ever used. Better than any Roc
Icon Ghost - surprising overstable when put on any type of hyzer
Q-Sent - Mainly FH approaches.

Icon Rival 166g
Pinnacle Rival 174g
Icon Patriot x3 166g, 174g x2 - These all actually have different low speed fades to them. From straight stable to pure flippy. I will probably drop one for a Pinnacle soon
Proton Volt - its just that good
SOLF 1.1 - hard to replace the way these hyzer flip
Firebird Star

Rampage Pinnacle x2 - one stable, one flippy
Cannon Icon - pretty damn fun disc
Sirius Scorpius - controlled distance, straight FH bombs
Omega - QMS - MD2 - QJLS - OLF/S - DD - Scorpius

Clutch Protege
Clutch Icon
Clozer Gravity
Clozer Portege

CE QMS
Ghost Gravity
Ghost Icon

Rival Icon - main hyzer Rival
Rival Sparkle - this Rival flies like a longer QJLS, a bit straighter than most Rivals.
Rival Pinnacle - the beefy Rival
Patriot Icon - turnover rival
Patriot Pinnacle 1st run - main straight disc. bit more stability than Icon
Firebird Star

SLAIDi Premi x2 - 1 straight, 1 more stable
Cannon Icon x2 - 1 flippy, 1 stable

The SLAIDis is a pretty damn amazing driver. Somewhere between a good wraith and good teerex. Almost like a longer Orion LF. Staying in the bag for now...

Well finally settling into Legacy. Starting to really trust the discs. Its been a bigger struggle than I expected to drop some of the discs I basically learned to throw with. But I feel it is going to make me a much better player in the long run. Forcing myself to learn lines that I never had available or had to throw because I was so used to just throwing hyzer flips with the QOLF and QJLS.

Clozer Protege x2 - main putters. Finally figuring them out.
Clutch Protege - straight approach putter
Clutch Icon - stable driving putter. really freaking amazing
Clozer Gravity - turnover and forehand approach putter

M4 400G - straight to turnover. a seasoned CE QMS clone
Ghost Excel
Ghost Gravity
Ghost Icon

Patriot Icon - turnover/roller
Patriot Pinnacle - stable straight
Rival Sparkle - stable with late fade. goes crazy far when thrown flat
Rival Pinnacle - a bit more stable. forehands great
Firebird Star
QOLF 1.2 - my seasoned baby. just hard to drop one of these for long hyzer flips

Slaidi Premi x2 - 1 straight, 1 more stable. These are crazy long on forehands
Cannon Icon x2 - 1 167g bomber, 1 more stable and less glide
Omega - QMS - MD2 - QJLS - OLF/S - DD - Scorpius

Have you tried the Legend Rival or Legend Ghost?

Also, can you compare Gravity to another plastic? Thanks and update your sig :P
