Been browsing the forum on and off for 2 years, just registered about a week ago.

Champ Classic Roc - 175
Ancient beat to shiv DX Classic - ???
Champ Orc - 174
Champ TeeBird - 175
Thinking about getting a 170 to boost my distance.
DX Wolf - 169
Glow TeeBird - 170 (Grip is effin amazing)
2006 USDGC Roc - 178 ( My Baby. =) )
Putting with a unusually stiff Blowfly (oxymoron I know) But it says "Patent applied for" so the thing's ancient.... right?

Adding Soon -
3 Kc Pro Aviars 170 (2 just for practice)
A DX Roc - 175
Hopefully another USDGC Roc in 170 if I can snatch 1 or 3 up. ;-) ( I spoil my friends...)
I need a OS Driver. Suggestions???
A new DX Classic.- 175 (I love the shit outta these things)
Maybe another TL - 170 ( I just lost mine in the lake.)

Any additions criticisms or comments are welcome. I play a really short course so I don't know my max d. I can throw RHBH and sidearm.

What do you use the Wolf for that you couldn't use one of your Classic Rocs? Also, is the Blowfly or the Aviar your main putter?

As for OS, I assume that means overstable, the commonly suggested drivers are either the Firebird or the Predator.

I bet you will make more putts with a putter of greater rigidity than a Blowby... I mean Blowfly.

I'll probably add a Firebird in that case. I use the wolf for shots my beat classic would turn over too much for. That disc (classic) knows only one direction, right. The aviar is going to be my main putter I just ordered them off Zonedriven so they should be here pretty soon.

Another noob lurker decloaking....


If water is an issue, try a Dragon. 150 does not love wind but does leap up hills. Solid fairway driver otherwise.

My Wolf liked to turn on it's ear and roll far from the landing zone I tried to stick for my putt. Woods and hill drops past the 'green' made it stink. The Star Stingray has let me pick a bank when I need to keep bearing right (from mild to hard, minimal hyzer finish), and land flat enough to stay where I aimed.

I had a 180 stingray but I didn't like it, Maybe it was the weight.

anything with this sentiment:

2006 USDGC Roc - 178 ( My Baby. =) )

Is just begging to get lost, stolen or broken and leave you heartbroken.

They're just plastic. I've seen too many heartache stories here to carry anything in my bag that I'd be too upset over losing.

Werd.

You need to throw something that is common, easy to get, and easy to break in.

bahhh! go ahead and throw your champ roc (i throw an SB) but let it be known that DX or KC rocs fly far better than either of these(i only throw the SB in certain situations, like if i want it to skip, etc)

Just got my aviars. :wink: and my basket :twisted: Awesome. Anyways I think I may have been standoffish and defensive in the beginning ( 1 n?). But the logic shines through. I just realized that I use about 4 discs for everything except putting.
Champ Orc-174 (Thinking about replacing with a wraith, this is just my bomber anyway.)
Champ classic - anything within 225' that needs a straight shot to a slight hyzer
Champ Roc - long sweeping hyzers. Doesn't get more perfect.
Glow Teebird - any long range drives that still need a good degree of control.
Now lets play fill in the gaps! I want your guys' help on filling the gaps, preferably innova.
So far I have gathered that I need a dx or glo roc
A dx classic roc
a hyzer driver - Firebird
It's free game. Fill the gaps. :wink:

You'd have a solid bag if you threw

Firebird
Orc
Teebird
Roc
Classic Roc
Aviar


Experiment with different weights and plastics and you'll be able to throw most any shot in any given circumstance.
