Default Interesting bag set up?

Seen anything that caught your attention?

I played with a guy yesterday with the "High Speed Driver" bag. I've played with him before, but it was just more noticeable this time because of how short the course was. I saw these for sure:
Nuke
Nuke SS
Nuke OS
Freedom - Lucid
Freedom - Deco dye
D1
D2
Trespass
Epic
Sword
King X 2
F7
Putter

Several of these holes were under 200' and the only discs pulled for tee shots were the Nukes, Freedoms and Epic. Trespass seemed to be the #1 approach disc.

I played with a guy on a short 9 hole course who only had one disc... a star Boss but because it was the only course he played and he played it every day, I was challenged to beat him despite the fact that I was throwing more appropriate discs for the short layout.

My brother basically plays with an all high speed driver bag. The exceptions being a Buzzz and a Pure. The Pure he uses only for putting, and the Buzzz only makes an appearance on rare occasions.

I have lost to a guy who played with a boss only that he either thumbered or forehanded on every shot.....I'm certain the top pros could beat me using a beach frisbee.....

People talk about discing down, technique, and the like, but if it works, it works. To each his/her own.

Our community is relatively new to the sport. I see a lot of people making drivers work. I may shake my head, but the fact remains, they make it work. Coming from golf, all I can think about is using the slowest disc possible for the given job. I know I should open my mind a bit.

That is exactly what my bag used to be...

I partially blame the disc golf charts that are at most stores. They can certainly help you if you know how to read them, but they also give the impression that having a speed 13 driver will magically make you throw long distances.

They're are guys who have fun and there are purists, if w're all enjoying the game, to each their own.

I play with quite a few guys who have nothing but high speed discs and they play pretty much only open courses. Sometimes they beat me, sometimes they don't, but nothing makes me happier than parking a wooded 225ft hole with my putter when they're bouncing Katana's and Nuke's off of trees.

I'm ok with them playing their game and me playing mine, if no one is trying to improve the other, it's all good and fun. The only thing that annoys me with a few of them is when they try and tell me that I need faster discs for more distance, yet they fail to notice that I threw my Teebird just as far as they threw their Katana.
