Max Distance
VIP Sword, 172g- Straight, hyzers, S curves
Tourney Sword, 172g- Tailwinds, annys, Hyzer-flips, Turnovers

Controlled Distance
Champ Glow Orc, 172g- distance hyzers, straight with fade, controlled S Curves
SB Orc, 172g- Hyzers and straight
Champ Orc, 175g- Straight and turnovers

Fairways
Z Pred, 173g- Spikes, skips, utility
Champ Glo Gazelle, 175g- Long flex shots, Controlled Hyzers
Champ Glo Gazelle, 172g- Line shaper, straight with gentle fade, slow hyzers
Champ Glo Gazelle, 172- slightly understable, controlled annys, hyzer-flips, FH rollers

Mids
Z Comet, 174g- Undstable duties, hyzer-flips, floaty shots
Ti Wasp, 174g- Straight with fade, S curves, longest mid in the bag.
Z Wasp, 176g- Beefy, hard hyzers, straight with hard fade, fast flex shots, skips
Z Zone, 175g- Utility, spikes, OH, real short hyzers

Putters
KC Pro Aviar, 175g- Driving
Omega AP, 175g- Up shots, Back Up
Omega SS, 175g- Main Putter

So a few changes.

Mids-
I switched over to the Z Comet instead of the fuse, and haven't missed the fuse. The Comet is great for annys and straight shots, but holds the hyzer better than the fuse did. This was important because I dropped the buzzz. The Ti Wasp is just doing too much. It is a slight more stable buzzz, so between the Comet and Wasps no need for the fuse or buzzz

Drivers-
I drop the Valk for an Orc, no real reason expect it just keeps me at one mold instead of two. Dropped the beefy Orc, because it just never felt right. Put in a Pred and that was nice because then I was able to drop the Trident. I found I just wasn't using the trident enough to justify keeping it. Added a fresh VIP Sword, because the other VIP was just too flippy and doing almost the same thing as the Tourney one. Finally figured out how to really throw a FH roller, and my beat Gazelle is doing some amazing things I would have never tried before.

Putters-
Dropped one of the Omega SS in favor of the AP because its a little beit easier to approach with than just the SS. The big issue was the Pure. I love it, but between the Comet great short hyzers and short annys, and the AP, it just was eating up room. I still use it when I play with the small bag of 6 discs because it can cover the other slots ok. Added the KC Pro Avair, but not really sure I need it either.

I have a tourney next weekend, so I'm hoping that this setup will do me well. I've been throwing well and adding a lot of new utility shots that I know can control (FH rollers, Tomahawk, hyzer-flip turnovers) instead of just hoping and praying.

Thought for giggles I'd post my small bag, this is the just for fun or right after work bag. Camelbak Mule for the hydration needs.

ESP Surge, 165g- Max D
Z Force, 167g- OS Driver
ESP Cyclone, 175g- Fairway
Z Buzzz, 167g- Straight and Annys
Champ Roc+, 175g- Slightly Overstable
Opto Pure, 176g- Putter

By the way this also my daughters bag, so all discs are pink and have My Little Ponies on them. Yeah I can rock pretty pink ponies.

So it's been a while since I update the bag, and since I have Colorado State this weekend I thought what better time. A few changes.

Max Distance
VIP Sword, 172g- Straight, hyzers, S curves
VIP Sword, 169g- Tailwinds, annys, Hyzer-flips, Turnovers

Controlled Distance
Champ Glow Orc, 172g- distance hyzers, straight with fade, controlled S Curves
SB Orc, 172g- Hyzers and straight

Fairways
Z Pred, 173g- Spikes, skips, utility
ESP Pred, 170g- Straight with a predictible fade, sweeping hyzers
Champ Glo Gazelle, 175g- Long flex shots, Controlled Hyzers
Champ Glo Gazelle, 172g- Line shaper, straight with gentle fade, slow hyzers
Opto River, 173g- Annys or Tailwind

Mids
Z Comet, 174g- Undstable duties, hyzer-flips, floaty shots
X Wasp, 174g- Straight but has enough resistance HSS to not flip
Ti Wasp, 174g- Straight with fade, S curves, longest mid in the bag.
Z Wasp, 176g- Beefy, hard hyzers, straight with hard fade, fast flex shots, skips
Z Zone, 175g- Utility, spikes, OH, real short hyzers

Putters
KC Pro Aviar, 168g- Driving
KC Pro Aviar, 170g- Putting

KC Pro Aviar, 175g- Backup

The discs in blue are ones that I added. I put the VIP Sword and Opto River back in because I lost my TP Sword and my roller Gazelle:/.

Added the ESP Predator and love the gap it covers between the meathook Z and the Champ Glo Gazelle.

Love the the three Wasp and Comet set. Very similar rims, and now I don't feel like I need the buzzz. The Buzzz and I never really clicked. It just wasn't amazing.

Changed up my putting a little and the KC Aviar are flying better than the Omegas, but it's more a mental thing rather than a putter reason.

So it's getting chilly out and I don't like trying to throw fast drivers in the cold, so I've decided to disc down for the winter and work on form. Trying some new discs because the Champ Glow Gazelles disappear in snow.

Drivers:
Z-Pred, 175g- Super Flat utility
Opto Saint, 176g- straight with hard fade
ESP Cyclone, 175g- line shaper (stable)
ESP Cyclone, 173g- line shaper (less stable)

Mids:
Z-Comet, 173g- Annys, hyzer-flips, floaty hyzers
X-Wasp, 174g- Straight, stand-up annys
Ti Wasp, 175g- Line Shaper, FH Roller
Z-Wasp, 177g-Beefy, Hyzers, skips
Z-Zone, 172g- Untility

Putters:
Champ Glow Aviar, 175g- Driver and approaches
Omega SS, 175g- Putter
KC Pro Aviar, 172g- holding, annys, back-up

Yeah I can, but the new ones I have, they have these beautiful rainbow stamps. It would be a crime against disc golf to alter them. That's what I've done with them in the past, but I'm too the point where I need to replace one, and I lost one. They'll come back out in the spring, I perfer the smaller diameter.

Just wanted to say I've really enjoyed watching the evolution of your bag. You make smart decisions that ultimately make your bag better for you. Keep it up man.

Thank you very much! This has been as much a record to keep track of stupid mistakes as much as it's been to help me improve.

By using these forums I have really been able to help find my throwing style and discs that fit me best. I love the feedback positive or negative because it's all about trying to get better.

On your September bag: any reason you went with a heavier Opto River for your anny shots? I've always understood that it was the lighter GLs that you want for those shots, with the heavier Optos being more overstable.

On your October bag: what do you have covering anny shots for your fairways, the lighter ESP Cyclone? How's that working? I assume there are some differences in wear between the two Cyclones?

Just curious, as I'm still trying to fill my anny driver slot in my own bag...
