Firebird? I guess the predator takes that spot.

My suggestion(newb)

Destroyer. I throw it well BH and I see many people throwing it far FH.

overstablish mid- a z-wasp or roc? (EDIT: Pain, didn't know the disc)

A few PMs were sent my way asking why I abandoned the Wraith for the flow as it was my old go to driver. I still really like the wraith the only issue I had is I only liked the pro wraith and did not care for it in star or champ. So the issue is that I was just going through them to fast.

I needed a disc similar to the wraith in a more durable material. The flow is not perfect but with the GL/Opto being more durable the discs last longer in their sweet spots. The flow does not cover all the shots I used my wraith for and I supplement those with the striker. If a new more durable material comes out and the wraith molds up well in it I may be back on board.

Cheers - Koffee

For windy days near or over 25 mph I pack a couple preds. I like these more then FB as the ones I have seem to take less effort to do what I want them to do.

Destroyer I like in pro. Not a real big fan of it in star. If I could get them in bright colors and they were easily accessible I might do Eco destroyers.

The pain is like a champion rancho Roc or between a wasp and a hornet.

I've been testing the Fuse. I have 4 GL ones, wrings from 163-177. I uniformly like them. Further, my wife and daughter love them, so I have to disagree that they are overly sensitive to OAT. Point is that for an under stable to stable mid i think they are pretty sweet. I'm curious to see if you dig them enough to earn a full time spot.

As for the wraith issue...although pricey unless you can find one used, an Augusta Star Wraith will fly almost just like a Pro Wraith, but in Star. And not just star, but suuuuuuuuper durable star.

Fuses are great. I prefer GL to Opto since it'll have no or only forward fade. That may also be a weight factor though; I've only come across heavy GLs, and my Optos have been on the light side. I played a couple single disc rounds with it this week and I've been surprised how much power I can put into it. It fared well in the open with mild (5 mph) breezes, but it does excel in wooded areas.

Utility

Z Flick 150 class I just cant leave home without it. No disc does what it does




Discs I am testing

Opto boatman - I am just seeing how this stacks up against my preds for windy days. This disc was a lot more beefy then I expected.

Swans they were decent but challengers and ions were just showing better results for me after 2 months of testing. I really like driving and upshots with the ions and may look at it for putting.

River Vs northman I really like both of them just going to take some time.

Havoc VS sword only been about 3 days testing but so far I still like the Havoc over the sword. I get about the same distance I just feel I have more control with the havoc.

Cheers - Koffee

I have not updated my bag in a while so here is what it is at currently

Drivers
4x Destroyers - SDS and *D (different levels of stability)
2x Opto Kings - For big annies or low power turn over shots

Fairway Driver
3x Strikers - Two GL and one Snowflake

Mids
2x Z Buzz One glow other Z

Putters
1x Zone - I use this as an OS mid for shorter shots
1x Ion - Drivers and upshots
2x SS OG wizards putting

I am currently looking to add a couple slots

(I usually do this from time to time then take them out a couple months later because I do not use them.)

OS mid slot not sure even what discs I will be testing at this point.

Understable fairway driver slot GL does not beat in quickly enough for this to fill this disc slot. I would loose a beat one before the other would be ready to fill the slot.

I also need a wind disc, not for when it is supper howling but something with a notch more stability then a destroyer but also a decent driver.

Discs I am testing
Sword Just incase I run out of destroyers eventually.
Giant wind and OS driver (it is in the mail)

Cheers - Koffee

For OS mid the only two choices people seem to stick with are gator or drone. I have a vector as my os mid but it really doesn't fade that hard so I think I may trying those two I just mentioned out.

For the fairway a River or FD would be a great choice. The river is kinda understable right out of the box.

What distance do you need a wind disc for? If long range I would probably suggest the giant (which you already have)

It looks good man, very consolidated.
