What Should I Buy?

Postby nice drive kid » Mon May 12, 2008 5:29 pm

I just graduated from college and got some serious dough from the relatives. Problem is I think my bag is very well rounded and I can't figure out what to spend some moolah on. Maybe you guys can help me out.


Extreme Overstable:

E Spirit
Overstable:
Star Destroyer
Controlled Distance:
SOLF

Overstable Fairway:
DX Whippet
Control Fairway:
Star TL

Extreme Overstable Mid:

Champion Gator
Overstable Mid:
KC Pro Roc (newish)
Control Mid:
DX Roc (beat)
Understable Mid:
DX Roc (thrashed)

Putters:
Medium Wizard (drives and most putts)
SSS Wizard (trying it out)

Where am I lacking and what should I buy? This money's burning a hole in my pocket.

I'm actually picking up a SS Wizard in a trade in hopes that it'll be the putting component to my Wizard tandem. I can't believe how good my Medium Wizard is off the tee - straight as a goddamn arrow. I've even stopped using my perfectly beat in Roc lately because I can get the same result out of the Wiz and reduce my bag load by a disc. The SSS is feeling a bit too floppy for me at this point but I'm holding on to it because I like the way it sticks in the chains.

I didn't get that much dough. Couple that with the fact that I'm moving to an area with no backyard. But believe me, it's crossed my mind. I'm going to be investing much of the money I got but I think for four years of college I deserve to reward myself with a couple discs.

Damn... I never thought I'd be so bummed about having a fully functional bag. :?

Or not having to spend money, for that matter.

Okay. Congrats on your graduation!!! :-)
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

The real world sucks man. Congrats on graduating. I suggest taking a ride to marshall st. and picking out a bunch of backups for the stuff you have if you are set on that bag.
