Alright...I've made a couple of changes. I've taken out the XXX as I've been using my Champion PDs more and more and they are plenty overstable for my needs. I've also added the River in place of my P-PDs as my finesse/turnover driver. I like the P-PD, but I like the S-PD better and my seasoned S-PD overlaps quite a bit with the P-PD. The River gives me some lines that the P-PD did not and I like the idea of my understable disc holding it's stability over time.

2x175 Medium Proto Red Ion--Putts, approaches, short/straight/turnover drives.
175 Medium blue Ion--More HSS/LSS for wind and short hyzers

177 Goldline Fuse--anhyzers, turnovers, touch shots
2x177 2FR Buzzz--seasoned and versatile, longest and straightest Buzzz (I lost my main one, so now I have 2 I'm trying to decide between)
177 Opaque Green Z Buzzz--More stable for wind/true hyzers

172 Opto River--Finesse, turnovers, tailwind, hyzer flips
175 S-PD--seasoned, all sorts of glidey hyzers/S shots/straight distance
175 S-PD--new and more stable for full power and hyzer shots
175 C-PD--seasoned, main hyzer disc
175 C-PD--new and quite overstable

174 Z Nuke--main distance driver FH and BH
174 Star Boss--FH D, wind, low ceilings, and open hyzers

just wandering because I dont know how you throw, but in theory wouldnt the seasoned C-PD and the new S-PD overlap?

In theory the C-PD and S-PD should fly like more or less the same disc, but they don't. The C-PD is like a Firebird...It's fast, stable, and glides very little. I use it to control distance precisely because I know how far it's going to go, and a little more arm or gust of wind does not influence it's range much. It's purely a control driver. The S-PD, even when new, has much more of a Teebird flight--Very straight with a late, yet predictable fade. It is sneaky long due to the speed and glide and therefore I consider it more of a control/distance driver hybrid. So I use my seasoned C-PD for hyzers or straight shots into moderate headwind, and I use my new S-PD for longer straight shots with/predictable fade. I do use my seasoned S-PD much more, and the new one is in there for situations where I want the S-PD flight with no chance of the disc turning over (which can happen if I don't throw my seasoned one correctly).

Have you tried the GL xXx? And all this River talk is driving me crazy, I might have to get one.

I've phased out my XXXs for C-PDs, but I will certainly be testing the GLs when we get them in along with more Rivers...The order was placed last week, so as soon as they get through customs I will let you know.

Sweet, looking forward to it. I've thought about picking up a GL one b/c my xXx is Opto "chameleon purple." It would be nice to be able to find it after I've thumbed it out of the woods.

I'm testing the ESP Cyclone in place of the River. I'll be testing some more Rivers when we get them in next week, but yesterday I took the ESP Clone out and found I had a lot more use for it than I did the River. I guess I might finally be adding a slower driver back into my bag...PPDs are just too inconsistent and SPDs are too long...Some days I'm fine really getting on my Buzzz, but other days it just doesn't feel as accurate/consistent as it could be.

2x175 Medium Proto Red Ion--Putts, approaches, short/straight/turnover drives.
175 Medium blue Ion--More HSS/LSS for wind and short hyzers

177 Goldline Fuse--anhyzers, turnovers, touch shots
2x177 2FR Buzzz--seasoned and versatile, longest and straightest Buzzz (I lost my main one, so now I have 2 I'm trying to decide between)
177 Opaque Green Z Buzzz--More stable for wind/true hyzers

175 ESP Cyclone--versatile disc to bridge gap between my Buzzz and PD
175 S-PD--seasoned, all sorts of glidey hyzers/S shots/straight distance
175 S-PD--new and more stable for full power and hyzer shots
175 C-PD--seasoned, main hyzer disc
175 C-PD--new and quite overstable

174 Z Nuke--main distance driver FH and BH
174 Star Boss--FH D, wind, low ceilings, and open hyzers[/QUOTE]

Keep us posted, I've been toying with the idea of adding a mold between PDs and mids (although I throw Comet/Roc) and wondered if the Cyclone would be a good addition.

When I was throwing my Clone yesterday it was flying like a mini-PD.
