Current Bag

174 Pro Leopard
172 Pro Leopard

172 DX Roc
3 171 DX Roc

2 172 S Ions- 3rd run stormtroopers, they are nicely beat in
2 173 N Anodes- main putter and approach

I have one really nicely beat in Roc. I kinda wanna get a little heavier roc to work with instead of some of the extra 171s. Really liking how the bag looks.

An option is to get a 180 DX or KC Pro. Will work as the overstable slot in the bag, too.

How about a lighter than 180 but still heavy DX Roc? Should I still get a KC Pro too? How about a champ Leo?

If you want an overstable/stable Roc that will stay that way, try a 174+ Star Rancho. Field work with one has been great!

Champ Leopard would work well to compliment your Pro Leopards.. and mine are pretty stable really.. nice and straight with a predictable fade.. or i would just go Star/Champ Teebird that would work great as a overstable/windy day type driver for ya..and maybe a light weight firebird or pred as a utility meathook type disc.. i have been debating on dropping everything faster then my Leopards for a while too .. hell i pretty much throw them just as far as my distance drivers lol.. dont really carry anything over speed 9 anyway but still

A heavy DX will work too, 175 is what I throw. With your bag, I'd go with KC.

My understanding of Roc throwers is they they throw three or four - KC, seasoned (straight) and flippy, and they might have one fresh one they are working beating in.

Really messed my leg up doing something other than disc golf. Can't really do anything more than throw from a standstill right now. Walking seems to help though so I've been trying to disc. Went to league disc the other day and also played a round with an old friend who is better than me so I've learned quite a bit lately, especially about anys and s-curves. Mainly using rocs and putters again now since I can't get my leopards up to speed.

So, I'm still hobbling around throwing my mids and putters. I can't throw them 100% anymore, especially on drives. But basically using my upper body only for my has taught me plenty all the same. I am utilizing my discs at lower speeds and using height, hyzer, anhyzer, and s-curves in different ways than I did before. My Rocs have excelled.

I am thinking I might want to add an X-Comet or two back into my bag. A great mold in a baseline type plastic, very demanding of form, and alot of fun to work with.

As much as I love the Ion and Anode, I have noticed since I have been throwing less than 100%, and such at lower speeds, that perhaps I have been putting too much torque on them. I will have to play around with this. But I still seem to think there has to be a baseline putter out there that I might feel more comfortable with. I definately prefer the flight and stability of the Anode to the Ion. Are BB DX Aviars pretty hard to come by? I don't want to start throwing OOP discs. Would DX Aviars be a good fit? I remember KC Aviars being to stiff, would JKs be good ones to try? Any other baseline suggestions?

I've been using 3 DX P/A Aviars 175g and have been very happy with them. All are pretty stiff, one feels denser than the other two so I drive with it and putt/approach with the other two. Great experiences.

While not a fan of them for putting, I've found Discmania Psychos make great driver putters. Good luck and heal up!

So DX P/A Aviars are more for approaching? I am looking more for a putter putter. Would Yeti/JK/KC Pros be more what I'm looking for?
