What's in your bag?

Postby travis.bundy » Mon Jun 18, 2007 5:24 am

Whatcha guys got in your bag?

Putters
Innova Birdie-172
Innova Rhyno-174
Innova XD
Innova Pro Spider(Primary short range/putter)
Drivers
Innova Champion Monster-175(Nice for windy days)
Innova Pro Teebird L-165
Innova Champion Valkyrie-171(Primary driver)
Innova Star SL-172
Discraft Crush-170
Innova Pro Wraith-170
Discraft Elite Z Spectra-167
Innova Champion Viking-175

Anybody have any recommendations to add to my collection(espcially mid-range). It feels like it's missing something. Some discs I had in mind to check out was Whippet, Skeeter, Panther, Cobra, Eclipse, Stratus and Stingray. If anybody has used any of these, please give me some feedback.[/b]

Why a pro over a champion?

Champion plastic tends to be more stable. In the Valkyrie's case, that's a godo thing, as it's a little loose... BUT, having a mold that you love, and having multiple plastics keeps consistency in feel of the disc, and adds extra shots. If you don't throw sideaarm yet, try it w/ a champion valk... I throw Champion & Pro Beasts, have a Star as well, but I haven't found "it's shot" yet (besides #17 @ WR, lol). Anyway, the pro peastic ages faster ad is more grippy. You may find that you get better distance w/ the pro vs. the champion...

More (Over)stable. Stable would refer to more of a straight flight (maybe that's what you meant but it didn't seem like it). I only know because I was corrected on the old forum for saying the same thing.

LOL Kepp!

Stability IS, the "lean" in a disc, right? so being more stable is the term for me... LOL Overstable would be a wraith, Surge, Pulse, MAX, etc...

To me, the term is right. 8)

I think you need some Rocs. My bag:

171g Z Predator - the only Discraft in my bag. Used for wind, forehand, overhand, and when it must turn left.
175g SOLF - Overstable max distance.
171g SOLF - Moderately overstable max distance.
170g SOLF - More beat, straight max distance w/ slight fade or slight anny.
175g Star Teebird - Controlled overstable.
171g Star Teebird - Straight control with fade.
171g Star TL - Straight control with no fade.
171g Pro TL - Trying to beat into anny control, nice disc the way it is - straight with no fade if thrown right, fairly easy to hyzerflip.

180g Star Roc - Long hyzers.
175g DX Roc - New - hyzers, don't care much if it gets lost, so I throw it around water.
176g DX Roc - Seasoned - the go-to midrange of choice.
175g DX FT Roc - Beat - annys, but wish it were more beat. Still working on it.
176g Q Sentinel - Like a Roc and Predator had a baby.
175g? DX Kite - Annys, filling in until the above gets a little more beat. I honestly hardly ever throw this and expect it to come out of the bag soon.

175g SS Wizard - putting.
175g S Wizard - approaching, driving.
172g SS Wizard - beat to perfection. Straight runs at the basket, anny approaches, uphill putts.

2 more Wizards that only come out for pre-round putting practice.

When life gives you lemons, stick them in the freezer for a few hours, then throw them back, 'cause they're like rocks, man.

I still haven't received any Star Leopards in my shop yet. that's pissed me off... I throw an X-XL though. That should be pretty similar.

Roger. So would you label columns E, F, G, H as "Stable" on this chart? This chart rocks, btw.

Disc to throw?

Postby mynamemf82 » Fri Jun 22, 2007 2:16 pm

If i am driving forearm what kind of disc will work well? I have a pro beast and a pro startfire and they seem to work the best but i have to throw a s-curve are there any that will go straighter when I am in the trees.
