Critique my Set-up

Postby alphafrolfer » Tue Jul 11, 2006 12:41 pm

Ive been playing for a couple years and have a golf d of about 290-310 ft (only 16 yrs old). I was wondering how my current bag set-up looked and if I have any overlap or holes. I generally like to keep the number of unique molds down and am in the processes of adding discs at different stages of wear.

Dx Wraith 166 (max d drives, flatten hyzers, long hyzer shots)
Dx Beast 174 (anhyzer and turnover drives)
Dx Teebird 172 (controlled and straight drives)
11x Kc Pro Roc 177 (holds a good hyzer line, banging throw brush shots and wind shots)
Dx Roc 170 (new 200-240 ft drives, long approach shots)
Dx Roc 168 (extremely beaten, short turnover shots)
Wizard Firm 172 (putts outside the circle)
Wizard Medium 170 (putts inside the circle)

Thanks for your input.

Good setup really no overlap but possibly a hole:
What you could use is an overstable driver, (in the vacinity of pred, firebird) for utility, very strong winds and situations you need to get up and down.
And possibly something moderately overstable (Champ starfire-X or Z avenger) for lighter headwinds that would still make a wraith squirrly. If you want to keep molds down, Z pred for very overstable, and X pred for moderate is a good combo.

That is good advice. I added the firebird for that very reason. A leftturning disc that handles wind. It gets a lot of use in my bag.

Also the Tsunami is a retool of the Pred mold, sparkle plastic (DGA's champion/Z) being ideal for overstable, and the proline Tsunami for mod. overstable yet breaks in to control max D.

I agree the tsunami is probably the best bet if you dont want to carry both very overstable and moderate.

But I thought it was only available in the new dga plastic thats more like ESP, Star, SB ect? either way if I wasnt so attached to Preds and Avengers (another pred based disc) so much I would definately be throwing a couple.

their sparkle tsunami is their translucent plastic tsunami. Very very predictable in a HW and great distance. It's usually used in tournies for fundraising or promotion, and from what I've seen they're $20 or $25 when available from retailers. Not bad concidering only $9 more than a champion plastic disc.

yeah, I think the reg plastic was good too, for only 12$, Im geussing the sparkle is a bit more stable, probably much like a Z Pred?
