^^^That's it, I'm trying an OLF I've read so much about them and thrown PD's, but I think that was the last straw. Bag looks good! Like BroD said, I could throw it.

EDIT: Oh, is it a 1.1 or a 1.2?

^1.1 SOLFs are zipper tops and fairly soft star plastic. They beat in quick to straight real fast. The 1.2s are harder and hold their fade longer.

Now.... Qolfs would overlap those SPDs if New ever wanted to minimize.

Drivers -
Champ Archon - (beat in) putting it back in for hyzer flips and FH shots with turn
SPD - (sweet spot) Straight bombs, reliable fade, flex shots, straight FH shots
SOLF - (beat in) workable distance driver, 400'+ turnovers
CAL CTL - (newish) straight with fade accuracy shots up to 380'
CFR CTL / QJLS (been going back and forth on these to keep them in the sweet spot) - workable fairway drivers, have some HS turn.
P Leopard (beat in) - hyzer flips, turnovers

Mids-
CMD2 - (newish) driving mid, wind fighter, hyzers, slight flex shots
CMD2 - (beat in) a bit more stable than my new Mako, fades out on annies.
S Mako - (new) lost my beloved old super gummy FR X-out at Flyboy, this one is stiff and I don't like it as much quite yet, still figuring it out. this one is less stable right off the bat which has been good and bad. it's much easier to put on really accurate anny lines but harder to get straight shots with fade, been going to my old CMD2 and anode for those shots now.

Putters-
P Pig - (newish) beefy, short flex shots, hyzers, some drives, wind fighter
P Pig - (really beat) it's developed turn on longer drives, i've actually been going to this for really straight shots in the 230-270 range. still has reliable fade at the end though.
S Anode - (newish) putter, mainly drives under 280, will throw it out to 320' range on holes where i want a dead straight line, provided there isn't a ton of wind.

Utility-
Super Surge - this thing is insanely OS, Thumbers, Tommys, huge hyzers, FH's that dive bomb

I'm looking to add a more stable compliment to my S-PD, thinking about getting another FB or C-PD. I also want to start checking out other super OS discs to back up my Super Surge like an XXX or Flick. Any suggestions are welcome.

Dump the Mako, get a Fuse and don't look back.

Stats: 27 Male, 6'2. RHBH predominately, working in more FH.

Disc / Weight / Max D on course - Description (Discs in red are out of the bag)

Distance
Champ Wraith /172/420 - beat in, I've got a lot of control with the Wraith so it just keeps hanging in there. there aren't many courses I play that I need anything faster than speed 9 so it rarely gets thrown.

Champ Archon /168/430 - don't use it much but i love to throw it, use it mainly for hyzer flips that go really straight or long turnover shots.

Fairways
Star Firebird /174/360 - it's really flat and very OS. use it mostly as a FH and thumber disc but have been incorporating a healthy dose of long range rollers in to its repetoire.

Champ Banshee /172/350 - Beat in, utility disc. use it mainly for spike hyzers, tommys, FH shots, getting out of trouble.

CE Eagle - Straight shooter with low fade, use it for low & long control shots

CAL Champ TL /175/370 - Very Stable with good fade, fights wind like a champ because it's so flat. taking the place of my Eagle which I sadly cracked.

Champ TL /167/380 - Newish, straight with reliable fade

Champ TL /172/380 - beat in more like a Star TL, main control driver

Opto River /171/400 - overlaps with my array of TLs but the one thing it has they don't is crazy glide. so generally when i want more D than the TLs can give me i go with this disc.

SE TL /170/340 - Beat in to understable, use it for controlled turnover shots

Mids
C-MD2 /176/340 - Really beat in, It was my go to driving mid but i've beaten it to the point where it doesn't do the thing I want it to do anymore, it's more in the range of my mako so I'll have to make a decision between the two. I'll probably buy another because I love how it used to fly.

Axis /180/340 - Still newish, using it mainly for slight annys/hyzers or through tight gaps, long approaches. It's been taking the place of my CMD2 for drives in that range.

Star Mako /180/340 - Newish, it's an X-out and it's super gummy and pliable feels like Pro plastic almost, started out a bit more understable than most Makos I've had. I love this disc, when i'm in doubt i grab the Mako. use it mostly for shorter drives, most annys and some approaches.

Putters
R-Pro Pig /175/300 - Beat in but still very stable with good fade, use it for short drives where i need good fade, rollers, short flex shots.

Pro Pig /171/310 - Beat in to the point where it's not a Pig anymore, used to use it off the tee but it's gotten unreliable, still use it on FH approaches some upshots where I've got room to fade it in. I'm much more comfortable with this disc than my Ions still so it's staying for now. I still use it for putting and approaching in the elements as well because the Ions don't like being wet.

M Ion /166/310 - beaten in to very straight, short straight drives, main approach disc now, use it for long putts

Eclipse S Ion /171/ - really starting to love this disc, using it more and more off the tee where i would of gone Pig, short straight on approaches, and currently using it for putts outside of 30' because it's a bit less stable than my main S Ion.

S Ion /173 - main putter, only use it for putting, really starting to putt well with it and happy i made the switch



That's what would be in my new big bag if I had the big bag today. I'm considering doing some more moving and shaking, possibly adding a Max D disc that's a bit faster. Here's what I'm considering...

P-PD - bought one today, I've been wanting something a bit longer than my fairways and more stable than my current fairway lineup. Will it overlap with my Firebird or CAL mold TL?

Pline Hurricane - Got it from the disc pass and I can really chuck it, don't know much about it but it may be the Max D disc I go with for now. any other suggestions? I've tried Destroyers, Nukes, Havocs, Boss and Ape. I like my pro destroyer but it's just to inconsistent, you have to throw it just right to get the results you want.

More Stable mid - can't really decide if I want to go back with the Warrior which I had good times with or get a new CMD2 and go back with what I know works with my current game. any other suggestions are helpful, i don't do small diameter mids though.

Other than that I plan on soon replacing both Pigs in my bag with a new 175 Pro Pig, it really depends on how fast I get comfortable using the Ion for upshots and how fast the R-Pro breaks in to the point where its not useful.

I know the Firebird and Banshee kinda overlap but I use them in completely different situations so it's not really been a problem. I do wonder if the P-PD will overlap at all?

I'm also considering switching out the SE TL with something more built for that shot. Never really had any discs other than the Roadrunner that fit that slot and I didn't really like the RR. My pro leopard is about the same disc as the SE TL but a bit shorter and a bit less stable.
Looks good except for all the craptastic putters. Take all them out add a Magnet and you're done...

Needing that overstable of a putter sounds like you have OAT problem with your putting...

He is putting with an Anode, in what world is an anode OVERstable?

N - have you tried the Fuse? I really love mine and it compliments the MD2 beautifully.
