Six Diamonds? Indeed...

Yep, the 159g+ Diamonds are working very well for me! Just enough stability for my ~250 ft. "stand and deliver" driving style.

The 163g Red OPTO (stickered 153g... ) is beefy and domey. Same PLH as a DX Tee-Bird but even more dome. The 161g Yellow OPTO Sparkle is a dead nuts clone of a 160g Star Sidewinder; so I gifted my Sidewinder and went Euro!

I'm finding the Red OPTO Diamonds typically have a PLH 1mm or more higher than the Yellow OPTO and more dome to boot. The RGL seems to follow the PLH scheme (Red > Yellow) with similar dome and maybe 1 tick less HSS.

Oh, and I typically carry my Nutsac for *most* outings. 2-3 Diamonds for the course conditions at hand with the rest at home in the basement disc annex...

heaviest River I can find


Mercy for putting
Spike for approaching

I would have a very minimalistic bag because while I really liked the discs I mentioned above, the rest never truly worked for me. Most Latitude and Westside discs are too nose sensitive, especially in the wide rim drivers. I would like find myself throwing the Sword, River, and Pain the most with the other discs listed used sparingly in unique situations. I would be tempted to see if I could sneak in a Saint, Halo, or Striker, but at this point I think I would be seeing too much overlap. Also, if the Mace comes out acting much like a Roc, I could see myself dropping the Pain and Warship and using the XXX for more than just thumber shots.

Goldline Pure
Soft Judge


I throw alot of these only a couple differences from my bag right now.



(villian i am learning is a great bh disc, once broken in very predictable and easy to throw)


underworld-several people have mentioned vision, i threw visions for a few years and i honestly think the underworld is drastically better disc. For me its much less squirrely, very predictable anny disc. Rim feels alot better to me also.
(volt i throw,,,not lat/westside or dd but worth mentioning) great disc and a tad more stable than the river.

mids: i have 4 that i throw.


for me gotta include the fuse in a best Lat bag. It fills a specific roll but nothing is better. I throw a light GL fuse, only used for anny/turnover shots.


judge (soft)

those are my exact putters that i use and recently made the switch to the judge. I use Pures for short mid needs approx 60-150ft and putt with judge classic soft. Great disc, rim is small sleek feeling, beaded putter which i like.
