Bag Feedback

So i think i finally have bag where it should be. some feed back would be nice tho.

Most of the courses i play around San Antonio are tight fairways with 300-320 ft avg. Max around here is like 580-600 ft maybe.

i am putting my mids to 285-300 consistently and use them on the majority of the holes around here. when theres no ceiling or for holes 320+ i usually reach for the drivers.

Putters:
SS Aviar 172 - mid to long anny puts, hyzers, most approaches
SS Aviar 162 - tailwinds, short to mid annys, elevation changes

Mids
180 Star Stingray(beat)- short annys, mid to long turnovers; flip to straight in tailwinds
177 Star Stingray - flip to flat finish with slight fade
180 Kc Roc (beat to straight) - flip to flat, straight finish, long annys
180 Kc Roc (Newish) - long flip to flat, strong fade at the end
177 Z Wasp- Headwind, Hook and Skip hyzer

Drivers:
169 Champ Valkyrie (domey) - hyzer flips in tailwinds, turnovers in nuetral winds
157 Champ Valkyrie (super flat) - flip to flat, long annys in neutral wind,
172 Champ TB - hyzer flips into neutral winds, flip to straight with fade in neutral wind
175 Champ TB - holds hyzer in any wind,
172 Champ Destroyer- Tailwind Forehand and Tomahawks, hyzer flips into headwinds
175 Champ destroyer - Forehands and Tomahawks, holds hyzers into headwinds, hook and skip shots


also, i have a 137 blizzard destroyer on the way. i gotta check out the hype...

thanks for the time and info guys. every bit helps.

looks pretty good, although some might say the destroyers are a bit too fast (you could look at an orc in their place - the speed would be closer to the valks). have you tried a leopard to compliment the TBs?

dude drop a destroyer and throw a meathook:
Z predator
champ firebird
xxx
good for really windy days, more accurate skips, longer on your tomahawks and harder to flip on your FH shots...just all around better for serving its purpose than the warp speed driver.

I like this setup. Especially the mids, covers a lot of shots with only a few molds. The only things I would do is take out a destroyer for either a predator or firebird and add an understable fairway like a leopard or river. The teebird leopard combo does wonders for me.

thanks for the info.

yeah ive thrown some dx leopards in the past and have had limitied luck with them. the most common problem ive had with them was constantly flipping them over. i switched to the valks and have much more control. idk i just dont feel like i can justify dropping the valks when i feel so much more confident throwing em.

what do the leopards do better than the valks?

I'd say most things that involve turing right (RHBH). The first disc that I learned how to hyzer flip with, and can still consistently do it on demand. The whole point of throwing a leopard is for them to flip up and turn right. They might not be as long as a valk but I'd venture to say that if you practice throwing them more often that they give you more control. You can keep the Valk in there but I'd give the leo another try (about 70% of people I know have one in the bag so thats gotta attest to something).

Your mid section is sweet dude. I wish I could get mine figured out.

Have you ever thrown lighter wasps?

the lightest wasp ive thrown was a 172 Pro-D.it was super flat and crazy overstable. it took a beating and held its lines until my bag got stolen from my car. the Z wasp i have now is more overstable still and does better in the wind.

also, i cant say enough about those star stingrays. they are awesome turnover discs when they get beat, and are super straight fliers before that. honestly,they are probably the most thrown discs in the bag now; especially for finesse shots.

on another note, ive been thinking of dropping the 175 destroyer in place of a driver thats overstable by design rather than speed. my destroyer used to fill the utility overstable role but i think my snap has gotten stronger so it doesnt have that same action as before. I was thinking may a Champion Banshee or maybe a FireBird. any other suggestions?
