Pspunch's 2013 Bag (now welcoming feedback)

Welcoming feedback and suggestions this year. I kind of have a winter set up going right now, bright, slightly flippier than normal. I also switched putters today, back to wizards, so I figured it was as good a time as any to start a new year's thread



Top down, left to right

175 SS Wizard - putter
175 S Wizard - new, freshy
170 ESP Zone - I throw lots of shots with this, as many as I can really. The most predictable, useful disc in my bag.
173 ESP Meteor - understable mid, nice lazy drift right the entire flight

180 DX Roc - beat - straight to slight turn
180 DX Roc - fresh - flat top, so it's a little faster and straight with a slight left finish
180 DX Roc - fresh - domey, pretty overstable for dx, still tons of glide
177 Champ Roc - domey, overstable

175 Pro Leopard - pretty straight, starting to get an ever so slight drift right
173 Champ Teebird - 11x, feels more like kc pro, very overstable and long
166 Champ Firebird - 12x flat, beating in and getting long for a firechicken
175 Champ Firebird - 12x flat, about a year old and still mega overstable

172 Star Roadrunner - this things a freak, it'll turn and come back hard, good for lines
170 Pro Destroyer - flippy, and crazy long
174 Star Destroyer - pretty fresh, strong fade, but will turn in the wind
173 Star Starfire - fresh, very overstable, wind

Love it! Don't think there is much advice I can offer. Don't like KC Pro Rocs?

I don't really have anything against them, just haven't had one make my bag yet. They seem a little slick and are usually domey and overstable. Which isn't necessarily bad, but my champ roc has the o/s spot on lock down. And probably won't beat in for a while (rarely throw it)

I had a kc glow flat top that I loved, but I lost it.

My plan right now is to use wizards to putt out to 40', then use a jump putt to lay up out to 60'. Outside of that I want to try and use the zone as much as possible. I haven't had much luck with putter upshots lately when it counts

What distances do you throw? As far as I can tell, the only suggestion I would make is that your Teebird, Firebirds, and Starfires all seem to do more or less the same thing (given, they aren't all identical). Is there a way for you to simplify your bag by getting rid of one of those molds?

Golf D, I'm at about 280' with a roc, 330-350' with a teebird, and can close in on 380-400 with destroyers. My firebirds are pretty short because of how overstable they are, 250' for the 175, 300' if I'm lucky with the light one. The starfire can still get 350ish and is great for wind. I throw some forehand too, up to 200-225' with control then poorly up to 275

These distances are all with a 3 step run up. This year I want to work on 4 and 5 step run ups. As well as acceleration and accelerating through the shot. I feel like I'm only at about 70% of my distance potential, still losing a lot of power because of timing issues.

Missed my edit window

This is set up for a short course tournament. I took out the star starfire right after I posted last and replaced it with a 167 pop top star destroyer. I've been looking for another one forever, great overstable disc, but it's out for Tourist Park. Also took out the roadrunner, a flippy roc and flippy star destroyer. I could probably take about 8 more discs if I wanted to, but I don't know the course well enough to really strip down. And I like to be ready for any kind of wind.

The star leopard is a new buy that found a home immediately. New, it feels like what I always wanted out of a beat teebird. The pro Leo/ star Leo/ champ teebird is a great combo. I'm going to try to keep my max disc count to 18 and switch out as few discs as possible this year

175 S Wizard - new, freshy
170 ESP Zone - overstable, bh/fh/oh, rollers, grenade
175 Eclipse Ion - forehand and upshots
170 Champion Rhyno - windy upshots, nice approach disc

173 ESP Meteor - understable mid, nice lazy drift right the entire flight
180 DX Roc - beat - straight to slight turn
180 DX Roc - fresh - flat top, faster and straight, great hyzer disc
180 DX Roc - new - domey, decent fade, tons of glide

177 Champ Roc - domey, overstable
175 Pro Leopard - slightly understable
171 Star Leopard - straight, holds a turn... Or any other line
171 Star Destroyer - turns a bit but will fade back. Uphill shots, downwind
168 Star Destroyer - beefy, headwinds and long sharp lefts

173 Champ Teebird - 11x, feels like kc pro, very overstable and long
166 Champ Firebird - 12x flat, beating in and getting long for a firechicken
175 Champ Firebird - 12x flat, about a year old and still mega overstable
170 Pro Destroyer - flippy, and crazy long
174 Star Destroyer - pretty fresh, strong fade, but will turn in the wind

It is so hard to not change my bag up!

Putters:
Took the xd out, never ended up using it for the short course tourney. And added a 170 Champ rhyno.

Mids:
Replaced the overstable dx roc (pink bottom stamp). It's been straightening out too much, I put in a new bottom stamp from the same run.

Drivers:
Took the 11x teebird out, overlapped too much with the new echo star leopard. I also added a beefy 168 star destroyer for wind and a flippy 171 star destroyer to go in between the pro and orange 175.

This will be my bag until 3/13/13!!
