Default Cyclone2's bag

Vitals:

Injuries/handicaps?: None
Other sport proficiencies?: lots of sports, I'm in good shape generally

What do you like/dislike about your current bag?
Like: My OLF selection
Dislike: The Discs I've lost lately
Specific areas of desired feedback: Any comments are welcome. I play to beat my friends and love cometition


Bag:

Drivers (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):
175 Champ Firebird - Beat - Beefy
163 QOLF - used - Distance with strong fade
175 SOLF - Used - Turn and Fade
175 SOLF - Beat - Turn with no fade at high speed
175 Champ Leopard - Used - Lone Fairway driver/Utility

Mids:
175 Opto Pain - Beef - (not thrown much)*
175 Z Comet - Used - Most Mid Work

Putters:
175 S Eclipse Ion - anything

I also sometimes carry:
ESP Zone*
Champ Beast (in place of flippy OLF)
Warlocks (in place of the Ion)
Z Buzzzes (I have lost a few recently and the comet has done ok)
Star TL (in place of the Champ Leo)

I am thinking of picking up:
Light MOLF (max D)
Pro Leopard (Flippy Fairway)

* I usually find that I end up in better spots throwing a hyzered putter shot rather than using these...

Thoughts?

I'm not too sure about your drivers. Since you use a Comet as your main midrange, I would recommend picking one up in X plastic and also a DX Roc to compliment it.

Also, if you like the Ion, I would recommend giving the Anode a try.

I do like X Comets. I lost the 1 I had I prefer a Z buzzz to a Roc however, it just fits me for whatever reason.

As far as putters, I have thrown:
Magnets, Aviars, Ions, Anodes, Wizards and Warlocks. I have liked all of them for driving and putting, but see negligible difference between them

It seems to me that you have a pretty good bag. Do you swap in and out the optional discs due to different courses or because your game is off a little? I would suggest sticking to what you know. For me, a new mold means having to try and remember how to throw it when I walk up to a shot. This would cloud my mind when I should be focused on the next shot and not the disc. Just my .02! Hope it helps!

Putters:
175 SS warlock - anything

Z buzzz and warlock are in and feeling good. hitting more putts than i have lately (with the ion)
I think a pro leo would fit nicely for flippy stuff... The champ leo is pretty stable and straight

I like the idea of mold minimalism. I have found a few molds i really like. When i find another mold thats similar (champ beast vs flippy olf) i give it a chance for afew rounds.

I do need to settle on putters- thats for sure. I am very comfortable driving putters- in the end i will probably have a driving mold (warlock, ion, anode or wizard) and something neutral to putt with. I have owned 1 anode- i loved it and lost it. Instead of hunting for putters though, i realize i just need to practice...

Played a tourney this weekend. I did some good work with the qolf, flippy solf, leopard and buzzz. Putting was ok, but not great. I have a pro leo coming in the mail

170 pro leo - less stable than the champ

Mids:
178 Z Buzzz - used
175 Z Comet - Used

Putters:
175 SS warlock - ups and putts
175 M Wizard- driving

Really don't feel like i need all 3 OLFs, I could cut down to 1... The Wizard has been a good addition, as has the heavier buzzz

i like it.. nice and simple.. only thing i could see would maybe be something a tad beefier then the Leopard.. unless you power down on the OLF or Firebird for those shots.. but maybe Teebird, Eagle-X something along those lines.. but yeah looks very clean
