Default Fish's 2019 Bag

2019 Bag


Welcome to my humble 2019 Bag Thread/Log

I'm still very much a beginner to more serious DG but I am enjoying the process. I still don't have a ton of distance but I will say my line shaping and consistency has improved.

Putters 175' - 200'
Mids 200' - 220'
Fairways 240' - 250'
Drivers - unknown as I rarely throw them

Current Bag set up:
Putters
175g McPro Aviar (putting)
175g Yet Pro Aviar (driving & approaches)
175g Champ Dart (long putts)
175g R-Pro Rhyno (FH approaches)

Mids
170g DX Stingray (US)
175g DX Roc (moderately beat fairly straight)
175g KC Pro Roc (slightly beat more fade than DX)
175g DX Wombat3 (super straight shots, a fun disc to throw)

Fairways
172g DX Cheetah
171g DX Leopard (slightly beat)
172g G* Leopard3 (more stable than DX)
172g DX TeeBird (slightly beat still with a good bit of fade)
172g DX ThunderBird (mainly used for FH, I use this where most people use a Firebird)

Drivers
168g Valk (rarely thrown)


Mainly looking for any comments/criticism on my bag setup. I'm not opposed to non Innova discs, they are just the ones I am most familiar with and easiest to buy locally. Currently looking to find an FD locally to try it out.

Thanks

That actually looks like a really solid beginner setup. I especially like that you're throwing DX, because you'll get to see how the flight changes over time as the disc beats in. I would just keep throwing what you're throwing, and cycle in fresh Leopards/Teebirds when yours get too beat. Valkyrie is a good distance driver to start with, you'll lean on it more as your arm speed improved.

Played 2 rounds over the weekend; one went well +1, the other went poor +12. Almost hit a goal of mine with a TeeBird measured out to 299' (UDisc) on a wide open hole, so close to 300'. I played with the same bag set up besides a DX Leopard that I took out and switched the Champ Dart out for a DX Dart.
I need to work on figuring out my mid range slots a bit more. They don't get thrown a lot during a typical round at 3 of the 4 local courses here. The only mid range slot I'm sure of for right now is the Stingray, after that I'm not sold on anything else. I think some field work is in the cards for me to really learn those mids.

Currently I throw the TeeBird a bit more than the Leopard3, maybe 65-35 split. I throw the Leo3 on holes that I don't want/can't finish left on. The TeeBird will fade more than the Leo3 currently.

What kind of shots do you use the cheetah for? Does it do anything you can't do with the teebird and leopards? You don't see too many of those out on the course anymore. Good looking bag.

Currently I use it for a couple holes, they both require a flight that turns right before finishing back left a decent amount. I could probably throw the TeeBird on a decent hyzer release and accomplish the same shot but I’m more confident throwing the Cheetah flat or with a slight hyzer.

I haven't thrown a cheetah for a very long time, played for a summer as a kid in '99 or '00 and used to throw one. I do remember really liking it as a favorite driver though, cool to see someone still throwing a classic mold. If it saves you strokes regularly then its something that is 100% worth having in your bag. Otherwise, see if you can use your main drivers, Leo and Teebird, to hit that line.

DX Teebirds break into superior glide machines. I have one in the glow bag that can go a good distance.
I like your setup. It's a good range of discs for getting into the sport. You are going to be a fan of roadrunners... No rush though.

Ordered some F2s from Innova last week, got a few discs I have been curious about including a Star Roadrunner 168g, thanks for the suggestion! Although I haven't thrown any of them yet as 12" inches of melting snow doesnt sound very appealing, (with more on the way) Also got a C-Line FD and the free F2 was a star Mako3. In total I got 11 Discs for 60.00 shipped.
