heartman's Bag

Hmmm, think I've got a post on here already, but I'll let that one die I guess.

Vitals:
Years playing/experience: DG 3.5 years
Right/left-handed/ambidextrous: right-handed
Throwing Style: BH, FH, OH
Golf Distance (avg/max*) for:
- putter/mid/fairwayD/distanceD: Aviar: 250/290'; Buzzz: 250/310'; Eagle-L: 330/360'; D2: 360/400'

Optional:
Age: 23
Sex: M
Injuries/handicaps?: Had some knee pain and strong-arming pain from my previous BH form
Other sport proficiencies?: Swimming, Basketball
Additional Information:

- Recently changed my BH form from my natural "The heartman Staredown" and holding on to the disc with my left hand until reaching my chest.
- I've been pulling through my core like that Schusterick video and I've got a little Feldbeard-esque runup.
- Switched most of my grip from thumb to palm.
- Been incorporating fan grips for more control on shots <300'
- Pleased with the results so far. Not where I want to be, but getting there. Been about 2 weeks with the new form and no knee/arm pain after I play

What do you like/dislike about your current bag?:

- I have every shot covered and am comfortable with all of my discs.
- I'm very happy with my midrange setup.
- I wouldn't mind cutting down on # of discs, but it's always fluctuating based on courses and how many FH's/OH's/rollers I plan on throwing.

Specific areas of desired feedback: None? Just wanted to get an updated bag on here mainly

Immediate and long-term goals: I'd like to have more consistency in the short-term, and gain some additional distance in the long-term. (the stock answer, but I like it)


Bag:

- Distance (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):

174 400G production D2 (new) - overstable BH/FH, FH rollers
174 400 proto D1 (seasoned) - overstable/stable BH/FH
174 400G proto D2 (seasoned) - stable BH, flex for Max D
175 VIP Sword (somewhat new) - thrown flat for Max D (once my stable D2 beats in a little more this is out of the bag)
170 Star Tern (somewhat new) - understable BH, hyzerflips, booming annys

- Fairways/Controls (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):

167 Champ Glow Firebird (new) - max distance thumbers
166 Champ 12x FAF Firebird (somewhat new) - overstable BH/FH, shorter thumbers, FH rollers
170 CFR C-PD (seasoned) - slightly less overstable BH/FH, might try it for quicker panning thumbers (seeing less use since I've started throwing a new Teebird)
175 S-TD (somewhat new) - stable BH for shots further than Eagles and less than Distance drivers (360-380ish)
175 Champ Teebird (new) - overstable BH, some FH's (not many)
168 11x Eagle-X (seasoned) - overstable/stable BH
175 11x Glow Eagle-L (somewhat new) - stable BH
172 11x Eagle-L (between seasoned & used) - understable BH, hyzerflips
175 MOLS (used) - BH rollers, booming annys

- Mids (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):

175 Champ Glow Gator (new) - overstable BH/FH, FH rollers
180 Champ Roc3 (somewhat seasoned) - stable to overstable BH
180 Z Buzzz (new) - stable BH
173 ESP Meteor (beat) - understable BH, hyzer flips, booming annys.

- Putters (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):

175 x2 KC Pro Glow Aviar (new) - main putters, nice and stiff, interchangable
175 KC Pro Aviar (trashed) - flippy driving/approach, so beat that the bead is gone
170 S-P2 (new) - stable driving/approach, I usually have a seasoned KC Pro Aviar in this slot but I keep putting my current one into the same pond
169 Champ Rhyno - overstable driving/approach, has enough beef to flex

MY

GOD

I forgot to put my Condors!!!

I throw them whenever I can out to about 280' on flat ground ... and usually eat a snack while I wait for them to get there.

194 Blizzard Champ Condor (new) - slightly overstable BH, workable on flex shots
200 DX Condor (used) - slightly understable BH, will hyzerflip or turn and hold an anny ... sometimes will BH roll it for giggles

I see no need for a teebird but other than that you're cool. Some overlaps but you need stuff to fill up that space in your bag.
