My bag

Postby rodman » Fri Apr 14, 2006 3:36 pm

All my discs are just under 170 except my 2 leopards.

Drivers in order of use/confidence
2 Tee bird L (the Tye Dye is my goto disc) Pro and tye dye is Star
1 archangel DX (still goes left for me with glide)
1 roadrunner Champ goes right about 15 feet or so then left slightly)
1 Sabre (new favorite. Awsome flight... just a bit shorter than others)
1 Sidewinder (brand new) Champ (seems longer but needs more work)
1 Valkyrie Champion (Awsome disc, fast and long... i just need practice)
1 very used cyclone (this guy goes where I tell him... similar distance to Sabre)

1 leopard DX (great disc, do it all)
1 Stingray DX (need to go right or glide? This is my guy)
1 roc (gets tons of use, I even putt with it some) DX
1 Aviar Champion putter

Practice squad looking for an opportunity

1 element (new and hasnt fit into my game yet... but I hear good things)
1 Archangel DX
1 beast DX
1 quarter K
1 Leopard DX
1 Valkyrie DX
1 XL
1 Cyclone
1 Starfire SL Star

Bought the XL, Cyclone and a Star SL for the practice squad and I'm in hopes they will make the varsity squad some day.

Here goes: Been playing about 6-8 months and usually score between 8-15 over par on my home course from the back tees...Avg golf D is 350'

(2) 174g dx Teebirds (these are my control drivers...replaced my z xl)
(3) 161g, 171g, 172g dx Rocs (the only one I really use is the 161g one which is really beat, but perfect for finesse shots
(2) 174g Champ Beasts (new mold...but I actually like them a lot...I can hit 450' if im going for pure distance)
(7) 168g-174g Med Wizards (these discs see about 70% of ALL my throws in a given round...im thinking about getting rid of my Rocs except the 161g beat in one becasue this disc is just plain better for my midrange...and the only disc you really need for ANY putt)

I carry the small Innova bag because it forces me to carry less discs.

Z Pred 170 Big wind, spike hyzers, forhand hyers, hyzers, hyzers, hyzer...
Z Flick 166- Trick shots, thumbers,grenades,tommys
Z Avenger 169 or 173- Headwinds and hyzer ( I switch two out depending on wind and how Im throwing)
ESP Avenger170-2- Slight headwind, distance with fade left
X Avenger 170-172 Max D Stable
X Avenger 170-72- Max D (replaced all valks) and Finish Right

E Hybrid Prototype 171- Straight heavier fade than hybrid, Headwind fairway shots
E Sabre 176- Very straight/predictable Got to Fairway length driver
S Sabre 176- Straighter than E, Finish right

S Demon 175- Very Overstable, Big headwinds short thumbers/grenades/tommys
E Element X 182- moderately overstable Midrange
S Element X 176- Currently more overstable than the heavier E, Used in wind
E Element 182- Go to midrange, Very Straight
E Element 178- Right Turn midrange, tailwinds

172 E Wizard - Harder, for drives and longer approaches
172 E Wizard - Softer, jump puts and windy putts
172 Glow Wizard - Very soft used for putts
172 Medium Wizard - Worn, Straight no fade, anny approach

i drive most the wizards depending on situations, just use the harder E wizard when I can take any line. I also have many other wizards that Im trying out, still seeing if I like the glow, it grips great, and sticks to the chains.
The hybrid is new, it replaced the Z cyclone for headwinds. However the Cyclone held a hyzer better ( the hybrid flips up but never turns ) So I use a Z avenger for the hyzers. I dont know how this thread is different from the blakes bag/everyone else... but I like explaining and chatting about the reasons fpr the selections I make.

It's not really different than the other. I didnt see the other when I created it. I too enjoy discussing the bag and reasons for it. I actually like seeing everyone elses choices.

I see a little overlap, especially with the Champ Roc/11x KC Roc. As well as narrowing the 4 TLs to 2(To the glow TL/stable star TL and the flippy star TL), and riding one of the Firebirds. You know your bag better than I though, thats just my input though.

Have you tried overhand throws with the TeeRex yet? I'm interested to see how it does in that department...

Drivers:
175 Pro-line Monster - great for wind and Forehand shots
169 (new) and 171 (beat) - Champion Orcs, for max distance drives
174 Q-Jls - straight stable driver
168 Sidewinder - Rollers, and long turnovers

Mids:
172 Z-Buzzz Nearly every shot from 240-320 Feet, I will throw almost every chance I get
173 D-Drone - Controlled approaches into a strong headwind, good for short overhand shots too

Short Game:
175 Pro Classic Roc - "driving putter", Money within 240 feet
174 Banger-GT - "Putting putter"
170 Z-Putt'r - super floaty understable approach disc, great for right turning approaches that don't die out

I would like to add a Z-wasp, and maybe something like a stratus to the mix.

I could definitely narrow it down if I needed, but I don't mind having multiples of the same mold, as long as I know exactly what they do. My TLs all serve their own purpose and I know exactly when to use them -- I could probably get by, but I don't mind the amount of discs that I carry. The Rocs I'm figuring out, but the KC is much flippier than the Champ.

I haven't thrown any overhands with the Tee-Rex yet. I have also been interested to try it out, but I haven't really had the opportunity. Overall, I don't like the feel of the Star plastic as much as Champ for those types of shots though.

DX eagle 174 - more overstable driver, use it on any line, thumbers, headwinds!
D XL 170 - less stable driver, use on any line, tailwinds!
X Xtra 172 - most over stable driver... don't use it much

DX roc 180 - approch shots 40' - 250', drives, tunnel shots
champion gator 174 - headwind hyzer approaches out to 150', overhand rollers (love that square rim)

E wizard 175 - or an S... shots 0' - 200'... big turning anhyzers to get around things (trees)

that's it... good to go.
