Kaikias Bag Log

Well I guess I will create a bag log to see how things change, and get ideas.

Vitals:
Years playing/experience: 3 Yeas
Right/left-handed/ambidextrous: right-handed
Throwing Style: RHBH 80% RHBH 20%
Golf Distance (avg/max*) for putter/mid/driver: Magnet:230/280 ; Buzzz: 270/300 ; Teebird: 320/340' ; Beast 340/360; Archon 360/380

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


Optional:
Age: 31
Sex: M

Note: Speed 9-10 is really my range of power the Archon is a fluke really.

Bag:

Drivers (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):
175 Star Xcal - Used - Head wind/Flick/Spike Hyzer
170 Star Archon – Max D Wide open holes
170 Z Surge SS - New Slight Head wind/ S with hard fade
175 Champ Beast - Used - Main Control Driver Strait little fade
171 Star Sidewinder - Used - Hyzer flip/Turn over
168 Star Sidewinder -Thrashed - Stand still hyzer flip/Roller

FW Drivers
175 Champ Banshee - Used - Headwind/Hyzer/Flick
175 Champ 11 TB - Used - Strait will Fade/Light Headwind
170 Champ Leo - New - Control FW Driver


Mids:
180 FLX Drone - Used - Wind/Hyzer
172 Z Buzz - Nice - Strait
172 ESP Meteor - Used - Anny/Anny Flick

Putters:
175 Pro D Magnet - Driving Putter/ Putter 20ft and out
175 Crystal Challenger - Upshot
175 Crystal FLX Magnet - Driving putter upshot (replace Challenger)
175 Pro D Challenger - Main Putter 20ft and in

Others That I am testing right now
172 Pro PD – Beat really workable for hyzer/anny/hyzer flip. Don’t know where it fits.
170 Star Monster – Will replace my xcal as head wind driver and hyzer.
175 Pro Starfire – I like this but really it is between my beast and Surge SS so really don’t need it.

You could easily drop this mold for a Champ Sidewinder.

Why can't you drive with a Challenger? Why do you need a FLX Magnet specifically for upshots?

The beast is still up in the air. I have been using my Archon allot and can put a little bit if hyzer on it a laser beam it pretty good. Thing I like about the beast over champ sidewinder or valk is it is a little more forgiving it I turn it over it will come back.

The reason I don't drive with the challenger is that it is my main 20ft and in putter and I don’t want it to get chewed up. For some reason the challengers don’t feel right for power grips, and had a tenancy to catch on my hand.

Right now I am using about 50/50 Pro D Soft magnet and Crystal FLX Magnet for upshots. I like the added stability of the FLX Magnet and durability. Yesterday I crushed it into a tree that would have killed my Pro D Soft. I was using my soft magnets for upshot and drives but it was really getting some dings.

I am really hoping that the champ Archon has enough stability that it can replace my Beast and Surge SS.

I dropped the Z Surge SS and went with Star Wraith because I was getting more d out of Wraith and seamed like there was over lap with Beast/Archon/Surge SS. I dropped the Beast for Valk because I wanted something to bridge the gap between Leopard and Archon. I did find the most stable Star Valk I could. Really not a big fan of Champ Plastic for D drivers.
