Bag for 2012...

Vitals:
Years playing/experience: Little over a year of disc golf. 3 years ultimate.
Right/left-handed/ambidextrous: right-handed
Throwing Style: RHBH/RHFH(80%/20%)
Golf Distance (avg/max*) for putter/mid/driver: Omega SS: 280 max; Buzzz: ~330 max; Teebird: ~380 max; CE Valk 440 max

* Max distance is the greatest distance you can throw your top 2-3 drivers with any regularity


Optional:
Age: 21
Sex: m
Injuries/handicaps?: none
Other sport proficiencies?: Ultimate, Ping Pong, Tennis, all tradition sports really
Immediate and long-term goals: Throw 450 consistently by end of 2012. Make 85-90% 20ft and in on putts.


Bag:

Drivers (weight/plastic/model/use):
169 CE Valk - main distance driver
171 Champ Wraith - hyzers/FH

Fairway's (weight/plastic/model/use):
170 12x Champ Eagle L - straight fairway
175 Champ TeeBird+ - stable-overstable fairway

Mids:
177+ Crystal Sparkle Buzzz - hyzer to straight mid shots/approach FH
170's Z Buzzz - straight
177 ESP Hornet - overstable mid range/FH drives and approaches
177 ESP Comet - straight to turnover mid, hyzer flips(windy days)
169 Z Comet - straight to turnover mid, hyzer flips(non windy days)
170's Z Breeze - turnover mid

In between:
170 Champ Classic Roc - stable/overstable drives

Putters:
170 Omega SS(bar stamp) - main putter
170 Omega SS(1.23) - stable/overstable approaches/drives
175 Omega SS(no run) - straight approaches/drives
175 Omega SS(no run) - turnover approaches/drives

I'm looking for a little more stable putter that will handle the wind better. I like small or big beads, but not a deep rim like is on KC/JK Avairs. I am not a fan of non beaded putters. Any suggestions?

I'm looking for a fairway that will turnover or hold a straight line. I have a champ leo that is too beat, but I have thrown some new DX's that are good. Would a champ leo be what I need?

Any other gaps you see?

challenger or ion maybe. what about the focus, ian? i haven't thrown one but the bead looks decent on those.

i would start beating in a pro valk in case something happens to your CE. and also because they are the shizznit, period. i find it hard to believe that the champ leo is too beat, those things stay pretty stable for a long time. what's the weight on it? pro leo is always a good choice. breaks in quick, glide for days. either that or an already-seasoned star leo.

The 167 champ leo is a few years old now. I bought it from a guy used and he used it for a year or so before I got it. I may get a new one of those or what about a Cheetah?

Thanks for the info on the Challenger/Focus. Any other suggestions out there for that spot to fill?

Any other gaps or things I could eliminate/add?

I added a pro d ringer for overstable approaches. It is working out. Also added the Leo and it flies pretty straight on hyzer flip for what I need. My bag will be tested this weekend at the Alabama Slammer so maybe it will hold pretty solid.

My game has changed a little since I have magically gained an awesome forehand somehow.

Throwing Style: RHBH/RHFH(60%/40%)
Golf Distance (avg/max*) for putter/mid/driver: Putters: ~300; Buzzz: ~330 max; Teebird: ~380 max; Wraiths: golf distance RHBH-400/RHFH-420; max distance RHBH-440/ RHFH-450

I have done quite a bit of changing but I think I have found a good set up. The only thing I am uncomfortable with is my distance driver, so if there is something around speed 10ish that you would recommend for a good distance driver, feel free. Any other suggestions/criticisms?


Drivers (weight/plastic/model/use):
172 Sparkle Champ Wraith-FH hyzer/BH hyzer/distance(go to)
175 Pro Wraith-FH control/ BH control
175 Star Beast-dead straight with a little fade
175 Orion LS-same as beast, little more turn(control)
175 Pro Valk-turnover/roller

Fairway's (weight/plastic/model/use):
175 Totem Stamp Teebird-OVERSTABLE!
175 11x KC Pro Teebird-Straight with little fade
165ish 11x KC Pro Teebird-touch shots/understable
175 10x Kc Pro Cheetah-rollers/utility/touch shots in the woods

Mids:
175 Barstamp Buzzz-straight with little fade(go to)
175 FR BS Buzzz-straight/understable
175 ESP Meteor-understable/touch shots

In between:
175 Z Zone-FH upshots/wind approach/rollers/utility

Putters:
168 10x Aviar-main putter
175 10x Aviar-jump putts
175 DX Aviar-beat/ turover/touch approaches
175 DX Aviar-straight/little turn if needed
175 DX Aviar-new/ stable
175 BB DX Aviar-overstable/ windy days

I believe you could replace these four drivers with a P-PD and S-PD

172 Sparkle Champ Wraith-FH hyzer/BH hyzer/distance(go to)
175 Pro Wraith-FH control/ BH control
175 Star Beast-dead straight with a little fade
175 Orion LS-same as beast, little more turn(control)

The P-PD is very straight out of the box and the S-PD is a great wind fighter and will have a dependable fade.

I'm thinking about trying out an S-PD for sure. I don't want to get rid of the Sparkle Wraith because I bomb forehands with it so easily and it is super stable! Also, the Beast and LS are my comfort discs because of the woods I play in mostly.

Would to the S-PD be a good fit where the Pro Wraith is? Will it have the easy distance the Pro Wraith has?

Fair enough. You could keep the Wraith if you wanted a Max Distance driver in the bag without any overlap. But once the PDs season up a bit you can work lines in the woods with relative ease.

To answer your question, the P-PD is more comparable to a Pro Wraith than the S-PD.
