1. Drivers
170, 171, 175 11x Champ TeeBirds (go-to's at slightly different stages)
175 4x JK Pro Valkryie (max D with hyzer flip)
175 Star Starfire (tuned to be a longer tee-bird)
170 Champ Sidewinder (turnovers to big 'S' curves)

2. Fairways
175 Pro Line Leopard (anything that requires a bit more D than a roc)
167 Star Leopard (big big big anny's or hyzers around tall obstacles)

3. Mids
172, 173, 180 11x KC Pro Rocs (different stages)
180 Old School Grippy Ontario Roc (any upshot that requires a specific anny, cause this thing can hold it)
180 Old School San Marino (problem solver/ funk minimizer)

4. Putters
For warm and no rain
170 (2) 5x JK Aviar-x's for in the circle
175 5x JK Aviar-x for jumps (beat in pig)

For cold or wet weather
175 (2) 12x KC Pro aviars for in the circle
175 12x KC Pro aviar for jumps (well broken in)


I play a 50/50 mix of woods and open all year, so depending on the course I will bring other drivers for certain behaviors.
The one problem I'm having right now is with my sidewinder. It has a much more flat dome than the sidewinders I've had in years past.
It's the only driver that I'm not confident with, because for slow turnovers it either crashes right way too short or comes back left.

My leopards, rocs, and aviars get the job done for any upshot/short hole.

I try to keep relatively new putters to putt with and older putters to jump/approach with. Usually gets me best results.

Thoughts/ideas?

Drop everything but one Aviar and add a Cheetah :)


Seriously now, looks like a solid setup. The only thing I don't see is a very overstable driver like a firebird or Predator...they come in handy.

As for the sidewinder what you are experiencing is a common issue with them, theyre squirrelly. I would take it out and add a DX Valkyrie, get it broken in and it is a great long turnover disc. Plus you already have a JK Valk so they should complement each other well.

Thanks for the tip about the Valk, I'll give it a go and see what comes. I lost a perfect sidewinder and I've bought 3 or 4 since trying to get a good one and I feel like I'm just forcing the issue.

I have a cheetah that makes its way out to the course every once and awhile :-) .

Find a max weight domey Star Orc for distance... it will match your Starfire in your hand, but go much further if you need to bomb it.

I recommend blue.
