Default Andrew's bag

Ok, so after retooling my throw and working using Garublador's "how to build a bag", I'm ready to expand my bag some and start preparing for my first tournament.

I'm going to use this also as a journal to track my progress. Finally getting cheetahs and Teebirds out to 320+ with my backhand and I feel like a different player. I had sold off or gave away all my other discs before I started this experiment. I have a couple fresh DX cheetahs I haven't thrown yet and a really beat one that I haven't thrown in a while.

Any suggestions or input are always welcome.

167 Champ Banshee - FH, OH, headwinds, FH rollers if needed

167 Star Teebird - reliably stable fairway

169 DX Teebird (seasoned) beautiful straight shots, goes a long way

168 DX Cheetah (fresh)

167 DX Cheetah (seasoned) - becoming fairly under stable, love this disc

175 KC Pro Roc (fresh) - lost my seasoned KC Pro so I had this as a backup, really sad day

171 X Comet (seasoned) - I can finally throw this for the first time. I love watching it fly. I put it in the bag when I retired my beat DX roc because I was afraid to lose it for sentimental reasons. Can throw this around 290.

(X3 Super Soft Wizards) 175 - putting, approaches, putter drives. I handpicked these and they are on the chalky and firm side of the spectrum.

Waiting on: 167 Star Sidewinder to try out as a "distance driver" and a 175 DX Roc to start beating in.

Nice bag. Keeping it simple with some classic molds. I like Cheetahs - they are an underrated disc IMO.

Nice looking bag. I love the simplicity. I also think Cheetah's are underrated, great discs. Sidewinder's rule also.

I could roc this bag for sure. Once the sidewinder gets added I'd say you're ready to go. Love that you have the banshee. One of most loved fairways.

Solid bag. I like it that you're consistent in your weights in the upper-160s.

One thing you might want to do eventually s find a Cheetah in premium plastic, such as Star or Champion. The Innova Proshop has them, I think.

Played a round today. Parked a 340 foot hole with. DX Cheetah. I can't believe how much my distance has improved. I'm so excited.

Dx crushes, homes. Especially in those slow fairways, it's unreal how you can get good d out of them.

If the Sidewinder proves understable for your needs. I'd suggest a Star Valkyrie (or Champ Valkyrie, if you prefer).

And if you're throwing Cheetah's 340 ft., you'll do fine with a Tern, Krait or Wraith...
