Bag:

168 Champion Leopard - Straight shots with no fade, Long annys.
175 Star TeeBird - Straight with a fade to the left.

Mid range:

170 FLX Drone - Utility shots. Spike hyzers.

Putters:

174 Opto Pure - Driving putter
170 EZE Pure - Putting

My Thoughts:

I'm really happy with my mids and don't plan on changing them. I;m looking to add a distance driver or two.

My grip is not very comfortable with wide grips. I would like something faster than the saint but not as wide rimmed as a destroyer.

Would be nice to find a mold that i could have one stable and one beat in to under stable. My local courses do not have many holes where you can air it out so i would like something controllable.

My putters are up in the air.
Drank the KoolAid on the pures and I'm not in love. I find the opto difficult to range for approaches. I might go back to all wizards.

Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks in advance,

Chris540

Try Wraiths for that distance slot. They start out stable and beat in nicely.

Yeah I'd go Wizards or Pures not both. If you're more comfortable with the Wizards, go with them.

Grab a Cannon to practice with to get comfortable with wide rims. Saint isn't that far from a Destroyer.

Just a little update

I dropped my MVP mids for Rocs. I just wanted to switch it up and my MVP discs are both orange. Added the River to try something new in the under stable fairway spot. Added a R-pro Rhyno for approaches that need to stick. I also added some destroyers to get used to the wider rimmed stuff. Im planning on some tournament play this spring and need to practice with the fast stuff.



Bag:

Distance Drivers:

175 Champion Glow Destroyer
168 Pro Destroyer

Fairway Drivers:

168 GL Saint - Left to right with a nice fade back at the end.
168 GL River - Replaced my Leopard
175 Star TeeBird - Straight with a fade to the left.
150 Champion TeeBird - Straight in low wind
Mid range:

170 FLX Drone - Utility shots. Spike hyzers.
169 DX Roc - Straight with fade. Short S shots.
168 DX Flat top Roc - Straight with no fade. Soft Annys.
172 Lat64 Opto Fuse - Anny shots and hyzer flips.

Putters:

170 SS Wizard - Putting
