Default riltim ITB

Vitals: 36 year old male. Out of shape. Work on a computer all day and drink too much beer to see that changing any time soon.

LHBH mostly, LHFH within 150'.

Discs:
DX Polecat: upshots and short right to left drives.
G* Polecat: New. Possible durable replacement for my DX.
Org Wizard: Super firm and Velvety. My putting putter.
Eraser Wizard: drives and upshots that need more stability than my Polecats.
Jawbreaker Zone: Beat in nicely. Upshots BH & FH.
Glow Z Zone: overstable drives and upshots.

ESP Meteor: right to left shots.
ESP Meteor: more stable than my other. Straight drives in the woods with minimal fade.
Z Buzzz:. Don't throw it much but there in case I need a bit more stability than my Meteors.
Z Wasp: Beat. My main midrange. Straight with reliable fade.
Z Wasp: Max weight and stronger fade

Z Heat: brand new. Looking for something more workable than my JLS' since they just like to go dead straight.
M JLS: Main Driver. Dead straight.
M JLS: Other main driver. Dead straight.
Q JLS: For a little bit of wind.

P PD: Control distance.
G PD: like my PPD with a bit more stability.
S PD: Wind.
Champ Firebird: Overstable Stuff.

Z Thrasher: Max D.
Z Thrasher: Max D. More stability than the other.

That could EASILY be TBird's bag. With Rocs instead of the Gateway mids.

Seriously! Replace the mids with Rocs, and those are my molds. Well, without the Heat and Firebird. Loved the Thrasher but haven't gotten around to replacing the last one I lost. It's amazing how easily it gets distance for my noodle.

2nd post (my latest) has the heat, firebird, and thrasher out. Just Wizard, Zone, Element, Warrior, JLS, and PD for now.

I'll try Rocs again someday soon; I'm having too much fun with the element/warrior combo to change it up now though.

I really like the profile of the Warrior, but I just don't dig that rounded inside. It's kept me from throwing them honestly. All good though. Rocs are the only mid I need.

It's a shame you pulled the Polecat too. Great mold I just recently realized I missed throwing!

I still love the Polecat but they were costing me strokes so I had to pull them until I have the time to really master them.

Within Polecat range I'm probably 95% garunteed to be within 15-20' of the basket with my wizards; I've been throwing them for 5+ years so I'm really comfortable with them. Polecat was leaving me too far left too often.

It also helps that I'm getting comfortable with my zone forehand within that range too in case I really need to go left.

Haven't really been happy with where I'm at skill wise compared to how long I've been playing. I decided to drop things back to a slower bag with a lot of base plastic.

My short game with my wizards has always been the best part of my game; By adjusting height/nose angle/etc I'm able to control them quite well. I'm starting to to learn I can treat rocs and teebirds as longer wizards and work some really interesting lines. I also had a major problem throwing everything low and hard. The rocs and birds are teaching me to throw some higher lines.

Wizard, Organic - Putting
Wizard, Organic - Putting (Backup)
Wizard, Eraser - Drives/Upshots
Wizard, Chalky - Drives/Upshots
Polecat, DX - Drives/Upshots
Polecat, G Star - Drives/Upshots

Roc, DX - Least Stable
Roc, DX - Less Stable
Roc, DX - Stable
Roc, KC Pro - Most Stable

Leo3, Star - Understable Drives
Leo3, Champion - Hair more stable than the star
Teebird, DX - Beat, Teebird stuff
Teebird, DX - Fresh, high 160's, Teebird stuff
Teebird, DX - Fresh, 175, Teebird stuff
Teebird, G Star - straight flyer with fade
Teebird, Star - Most stable
Firebird, Glow Champion - Overstable stuff. Overhand.
