I am building a simple, slow control bag for wooded courses. I am looking for a slightly OS approach disc/slow mid to complement my Comets. A disc which does not skip, and preferably will not roll frequently either. Predictability is key here. The disc can have a bead.
170 Soft Magic - putt-putter, not an approach disc
??? Mystery Disc - slightly overstable putter/slow midrange, for controlled parking approaches
173 ESP Comet - straight, still in the mail (finally a new batch became available, yay!)
173 X Comet, new - slightly understable
173 X Comet, beaten - understable
150 Ladyline FD Jackal - longer wooded control drives
So far, I have tried an Opto Pain, Pro D Drone, Z Comet, Basic JOKERi and Star Rancho Roc in the mystery slot. With Z Comet, the amount of fade seems to be different based on the speed of the throw, making it less predictable for me than the other Comet plastics. I am looking for something with more glide and slightly less overstability than the Star Rancho Roc. Pain was slightly too OS. Pro-D Drone was too fast and kept skipping behind the basket. JOKERi had an annoying tendency to bounce to its side and roll away after landing close to the basket.
Some ideas for the mystery disc slot:
KC Pro Roc - I was throwing 174 KC Pro Roc when I started out 2 years ago, but it did not have enough glide for my liking so I went to Fuse, and from there to Comet. But maybe at a lighter weight (170 or below) it could work? The benefit of the Roc molds is that I can be sure it does not turn over in the woods.
MVP Ion - I have tried 174 Glow Ion as a putt-putter some time ago, and loved it until the weather conditions became wet and slippery (bad grip). Switched over to Magic. Never really tried it as an approach disc, but I guess it could work quite well.
??? MD2 - I disliked a domey 175 C-MD2, but a flatter P-line might work?
Medium Wizard, Gold Mace, Star Lycan, Pro-D Ringer, S M2, DX Roc, DX Classic Roc, Elite Z Wasp - these all seem like valid options, but I don't have any experience from them.
Also, my power is starting to get 150 weight Jackal a bit flippy, but not consistently strong enough for throwing a 168 D-line FD Jackal predictably enough for the whole round. If you can suggest another fairway driver, probably around 160-165 weight range, that would be appreciated as well.
Maybe a 167-169 Neutron Volt?
Yet one more option would be to acquire another 150 Champ Leopard to replace the one I sold some time ago to a friend who was beginning the sport, and use it both as a fairway driver in the woods as well as to fill the slightly OS approach disc slot. That disc powers down very well.
