Question Ok now that I've picked my bag, what do i put in it?

I've been playing and practicing dg for about a month now. I'm kinda obsessed. Right now I want to keep my bag as simple as possible as I learn and work on my technique. These are the discs I have now:

150g DX Aviar
2 175g DX Aviars
150g DX Shark
176g Buzz FLX
169g DX leopard
150g Dragon
171g Champion Orc
170g Star Wraith
175g Star Destroyer (found)
174g Pro-D Avenger SS (found)

Right now I take my 175g Aviars, Buzz, Leopard, Dragon (for water shots, there is a lot of water on the courses I play), Orc (for thumbers, tomahawks, and windy drives) and my wraith (for wide open distance drives and sidearm throws)

As it stands I am thinking of buying a Teebird TL to be my primary driver as I turn over my leopard very easily.

I welcome any suggestions of what to add, buy, or remove from my bag. Thanks for your help!

I really want to work on my consistency and accuracy though. That's why I thought the TL would be a good learning tool.

so figure about 250 taking into account internetz inflation...

id stick with getting your leopard out to 350 before adopting a faster or more overstable mold.

so, with form correction can I keep my leopard from turning over at that distance? I can't seem to throw it anywhere but right without some hyzer.

at this stage in the game, you want to learn to snap understable discs hard and with a lot of hyzer and get them to flip flat and travel.

There are two school of thoughts, one (which Apoth is describing) is control the same disc with different form for different shots and the other is using consistent form and changing discs depending on the shot (making the disc do the work).

Both have their points and are their own topic.

If you want 2 other discs, I'd suggest a Teebird and a TL/XL. Leopard will turn over, XL should be straight with movement to the right, Teebird will be straight with movement to the left.

For one other disc I've been testing out a Stalker. While it can't fully replace a Teebird and a TL/XL, it sort of falls right in the middle of the two but just a bit shorter. It should be just about straight for you and I can see using it if I was limited in the number of molds I could carry. Since I have a Teebird and an XL I'm not sure if I need it, but if I didn't already have them it would be instantly in the bag.

That is what I recommend, with a stable control driver added after you can throw the Leopard straight for 320 consistently. I'd try out a Teebird, Stalker or dx Eagle for the stable driver.

Leopards can be thrown for 400' and still fade back. DX ones tend to get flippy kind of quick, my personal favorites are 171g stars. Learn to control the Leopard and it will do you a world of good opposed to using an overstable driver to mask form flaws.

For water I think a better solution than a dragon is a baseline plastic version of a control driver or midrange that you frequently throw.

Have fun learning, it's very rewarding.
