Also something to consider for that last spot in your bag, depending on the courses you play. And that's a very overstable mid for utility purposes. I'm talking much more OS than a Shark. Ideas are the Hornet, Drone, Justice, Gator, Mortar, etc. Or an overstable approach disc like the Harp, Zone, AviarX3, etc. Really helped my game when I added them (I use the Harp, and sometimes bag a Hornet, depending on the course I'm playing), and you might be surprised how useful they can be.
I was wondering about that...although, if I could get it to work itself to a point between where it starts and my Leopard I don't have a problem removing my DX Leopard from the bag...was thinking of getting the river in Gold Line or Opto so the better plastic would be nice as well.

And then I considered the Saint instead of the River, thinking it would get beat in some and become something more of a straight flyer. Although I found a 160g Escape (with no name on it) the other day on the course...which seems to have very similar numbers to the Saint.

Funny you should mention the very mid...the hole where I threw my DX Roc, if it would have had a bit more fade on it I would have been laying within 10 feet of the target. My Teebird would have been too long and if I'd have thrown the Roc harder it would have gone too far. I thought an EMAC Truth might fit that spot nicely but from what I've read it seems to be less stable than the Roc. So I was looking at DD/Lat64 discs for that shot and was looking into the Verdict. Thanks for the other suggestions!!!

Instead of finding a new mid for that shot put a little hyzer on the roc.

No! New Trilogy plastic always solves the problem!

But that would interfere with building the theoretical perfect bag after playing for 2 months.

I don't believe anyone has mentioned the GL Claymore. It's my favorite mid.

I would take every disc out of your bag besides the tb, river, buzz, pure, and ringer.

This! You should be able to tackle most courses with those four discs and learn to manipulate lines with fewer discs. Heck, you really just need a Buzzz and a putter at two months in.

Thanks for all the helpful input!

Disc golf seems a lot like tennis in the fact that you have to try various racquets/discs to find what works best for you and what racquet/disc gives you confidence in the shot your trying to pull off. Thank goodness you don't to worry about what type of string and tension to use with discs!

For right now I'm going to go with a DD Truth in Lucid (171g or 176g, haven't decided yet) and hold off on an overstable mid...just use my Roc since it seems to be working well right now.

Again, I appreciate all the input!!

What Fuses have you been throwing that you can compare them to a Shark or visa versa? The Fuse is neutral to understable and the Shark is more on the overstable side. Both more HSS and LSS. Genuinely curious.
