Well the white stuff has arrived up here in Minnesota, so I haven't been playing with the same frequency. But I still think my bag is coming together quite nicely.

I found a couple s eclipse ions to match my older pair. Very nice to have four putters to practice with!

I picked up some nice flat max weight Ching rocs which oughta fill my dx slots for a long time to come. I am very comfortable throwing dx, having used them in all stages of wear.

I don't feel near as comfy with kc pro. The one I have is nice and beat in, but a friend of mine threw it and I just picked it up in its current state, and nut having the same amount of experience, it's just not the same, yet.

I have a nice fairly flat JO champ roc and two first run protostars on the way, all close to max weight. I am thinking there would be a fair amount of overlap between these and kc pros so for the time being I'm throwing these instead.

I really like them. They feel great in the hand. I can't really compare to a buzzz, since I haven't thrown one since I first started. But im guessing more classic mid style like other rocs, slower and more glidey. New, the have plenty of fade. I haven't managed to beat mine in much yet. The domey ones are more overstable I know that. Compared to dx they are faster, more fade, less glide. Just great plastic, they are gonna last a long time.

Well it's been snowing and wintry quite a bit do I haven't had many opportunities to play but when I have I've used something like this:

165 DX Eagle-X - all drives
165 Champ Eagle-X - just bring it along for a second eagle when I throw twice and also to beat it in

180 JO Roc - alot of the straight shots and hyzers
178 DX Roc - Ching, other straight shots, point and shout, s-curves, annys

172 S Ion - Proton Stormtrooper, pretty beat, main putter
172 S Ion - Proton Stormtroopet, pretty beat, main putter
172 S Ion - new, backup putter
171 S Ion - new, backup putter

Pretty effective. But I've since traded for a 174 CE Eagle-X and bought a couple protostar Rocs. So now it's gonna look something like this:

174 CE Eagle-X
165 Champ Eagle
165 DX Eagle

178 Protostar Roc3 - flat
178 DX Ching Roc

172 S Proton Ion
172 S Proton Ion
172 S Eclipse Ion
171 S Eclipse Ion

A couple thoughts. Is the champion eagle necessary? Should I add some lighter weight Rocs back in? I don't know what purpose they would serve. Should I put a KC Pro back in? I have another Protostar on the way and another Ching as backups too. I was gonna try to get another DX Eagle as well, I was thinking backup type purposes but maybe I should get a slightly different weight to work with one a little different.

I'd have a Champ Eagle just for windy stuff and when you need some beef.

A friend gave me a S Proton Anode for Christmas. I really like it, better than the neutron I'd tried previously. It is really easy to switch between the anode and ion for me, since they are similar and since ive used the anode before, so I'm thinking about running both. After the first few throws I like the anode better than my eclipse ions. Anyways here's a pic of the new stuff:



And here is how my bag looks ATM. The CE Eagle has not arrived in the mail yet.

165 12x Champion Eagle - utility, backup driver
165 DX Eagle - main driver, seasoning, great line-shaper

180 Protostar Roc3 - haven't scaled this one yet
178 Protostar Roc3 - both very flat
178 DX Roc - Ching, seasoning
178 DX Roc - Ching, backup

172 S Ion - main putter, approach and drive
172 S Ion - main putter, approach and drive
172 S Eclipse Ion - backup
171 S Eclipse Ion - backup
175 S Anode - testing
