After messing around with my bag alot I have finally got a good setup that I am happy with.

Z predator
DX valk (new)
special edition Valk (beat, dead straight)
DX Valk (Very beat)
DX Teebird (max weight, new)
DX Teebird (near max weight, beat)

KC Roc (new)
Glo Roc (beat to straight)
KC 10x Roc (so bear you have to trust me when I say its a roc)

Med Wizard (near max weight)
Soft Wizard ( max weight)
SS Wizard (168, putting only)

Depending on the wind I sometimes switch out the Valks with some Eagles. I am also messing around with a Champ Roc and a SE TL but both are not super impressing me.

Ok, I'm posting my humble bag with loads of apprehension based on what others carry. However, I'll never know what to supplement my bag with if I can't get the opinions of more seasoned players.


DX Valkyrie
Pro Valkyrie
Elite X Cyclone

DX Roc
Elite X Comet

Pro Aviar
Rhyno (some kind of special edition that I can't recall at the moment)

As is painfully obvious, I'm still quite the novice.

your bag is still nearly complete.
you would beinifit from a overstable driver thats within your power range.
and once your roc breaks in it will do alot of stuff the comets good for.

Keep it simple and you will learn alot more.

Yeah, I'm definitely trying to keep it simple. I've had bad form and a whirlwind of discs over the past year, so I'm basically starting from scratch to build myself into the player I know I should be.

174g Wizard (only marked as "S", I don't know what firmness)
It's black and looks really good in the chains. 8)
Midrange:
176g Z Wasp
I'll be supplementing this with a D Wasp near the same weight by this weekend hopefully. Go UPS, go!
Drivers:
172g X Predator
I bought this for one specific hole at my home course and birdied today it on my first try with this disc. I'm glad I didn't let the nitwit at the disc shop talk me into that Champ. monster. If I didn't enjoy hording frisbees so much I'd put the POS flick that that this Predator replaced up for sale. Discrafts rating system is terrible.
166g * TL
\m/
174g DX Teebird
I read this website too :)
171g DX Beast
Goes far, curves right. This disc is perfect for the 18th hole at my home course. If I hadn't always fallen so far behind by that point I could make some nice 18th hole comebacks by birdying a hole that most other people can't with this disc.
Mini:
red innova mini
I can't get a clean release with this thing. Not a good putter either.


I've expanded a bit since this post:

170g soft Wizard
175g med Wizard I'm trying to decide between this and a 175g firm wizard for drives/approaches. The firm one gives me a few extra feet but I sometimes release it early on approaches. I'll probably carry both when I save up some cash for a bigger bag.
177g d Wasp (seasoned)
176g z Wasp
166g * TL (beat)
167g * TL (fairly new)
173g dx Teebird (beat)
173g dx Teebird (slightly seasoned)
171g x Predator (well used)
169g z Predator (close to new)

Anyone see anything that I need or don't need?

What's the difference between your beat TL and your beat DX Teebird? What about between your new TL and slightly used Teebird?
This looks to me like:
166g * TL (beat) UNDERSTABLE
167g * TL (fairly new) CONTROL
173g dx Teebird (beat) UNDERSTABLE
173g dx Teebird (slightly seasoned) CONTROL
171g x Predator (well used) DISTANCE
169g z Predator (close to new) VERY OVERSTABLE
It looks like you're overlapping in a couple areas, and that you're missing a slightly overstable driver.

Good point. I'd say that the difference is that the TB is a bit heavier than I would like which makes it harder to throw. :oops: I'll take the two used TB out and add another fresh dx TB for the slightly overstable spot. Thanks for the input. It seems really obvious now that you said it but sometimes I just need someone else to bounce things off of.

dola,

Actually, the TB are a bit different for me because I can use them for flip up shots sidearm and they don't flip past level. The x Predator is almost at the stage where I can make the above shot with it so I'm still going to follow your advice.

Maybe it is time for another one of these threads. This one is great and has a lot of good info, but perhaps it is time for a fresh thread.

Some would say:

"If it isn't broken, don't fix it."

I personally like to be able to look back at my old posts to see how much my bag has changed. Just my $. 02. I've got to admit that this thread was much more successful than I thought it would be when I started it.
Practice, practice, practice. Especially with players that are better than you. It's one of the only ways to learn new things.
