Default Chuck G's bag

I've been lurking a few months and have learned a ton here!

Vitals:
Years playing/experience: DG on & off in summers 2015-2018, got more serious this past summer
Right/left-handed/ambidextrous: right-handed, started working on left hand this summer
Throwing Style: RHBH, RHFH mainly, occasionally LFBH, LFFH is pitiful
Golf Distance (avg/max*) for putter/mid/driver: Aviar3: 150/200'; Roc3: 260/280; Leopard: 280/310'

Age: 53
Sex: M
Injuries/handicaps?: Tendonitis in right elbow
Other sport proficiencies?:
Additional Information: Left eye dominant/right handed
Specific areas of desired feedback: Want to get better at forehand, want to get better control on tunnel shots
Immediate and long-term goals: I'd like to have more control in the short-term, gain some additional distance and develop left hand flick in the long-term, reduce number of molds but dont have to be crazy minimalist either


Bag:

Drivers (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):
175 DX Leopard, (starting to get beat in a little, turns some with power) - main driver
163 Star Leopard3, (few months old, cant tell if its getting beat yet) more OS than DX Leopard but not predictably OS like DX Teebird
171 DX Teebird, (fairly new) straight/flex shots
165 Champ Teebird (few months old)
175 DX Banshee, (new) - overstable/headwind/flex shots

Mids:
180 Champ RocX3 (few months old) - main mid, a little OS but not gator/caiman-ish
176 Champ metal flake Roc3 (few months old) straight w/little fade
180 DX Roc (beat) straight
176 DX Roc (new) just got it to start beating in
175 DX Cobra (new, lost last one) straight, disposable disc I throw over/near water
177 DX Stingray (starting to get beat in a little) hyzer flips/right turns


Putters:
175 Star Rat (few weeks old) pretty straight, starting to really like this disc for layups near the basket & get out of trouble thumbers (technically a mid but I use it as a P&A disc)
172 Star Rat (used) turned me on to the Rat, now a spare
174 Evolution soft Link, (new) - main putter when walking, only started using it a few weeks ago

I got more serious about DG this summer and got a little happy buying discs. Ive tried a few distance drivers (170ish champ Beast, 153 Gstar Sidewinder) but I dont seem to get any more distance out of them then my fairway drivers so I dont carry them playing.
I play courses around Raleigh NC, mostly Cedar Hills, Apex Nature Park, Middle Creek, Jones Park.
I started running and playing DG once or twice a week, then I just carry a fairway driver, RocX3/Roc3, and a Rat.

Im at similar distance and age as you, so a few tips from me

If you like the LINK putter, buy a few more. . .i have 3 putters in the bag at all times so i can throw 3 putts on every basket during practice rounds

Buy a premium plastic LINK for those straight p&a shots.

I have similar distanse with my Leo3 as my Shrykes. . .but the Shryke skips ALOT more so even if a Leo3 and Shryke lands on the same spot the Shryke skips +25ft further
So try a 165-169g Star Shryke.

Jolt, thanks for the putter tip, I should do that.

I was also thinking about trying a hard LINK for approaches

Solid bag. But the Rocs and Roc3s aren't redundant?

SD86, you are correct. The Champ RocX3 is more OS, I dont throw the MF Roc3 that much since I got the X3 but its there as a spare, and its pink-easier to see in low light for me. I was expecting the MF Roc3 to be more OS based on what I read online but its pretty straight.

I took my star Mako3 out of the bag and am trying to use the DX Rocs more so they beat in enough to turn right. If I can get them to that point I can take the Stingray out.

163 Star Leopard3
175 DX Banshee
176 Metal Flake Roc3
175 Star Rat
174 soft LINK

+12 over par

Wild throw on #7 and Roc3 went in the pond, it was floating a few feet from shore, pulled it closer with a stick then pond devoured it

Practiced throwing flick with Rat on tunnel shots instead of throwing Leopard3/Roc backhand, threw into the ground a few times

Gmtata01, thanks for the tip that could be an option when walking

When running and playing DG I carry 3-4 discs and a towel that's all

Bought a 200g DX Condor last Saturday, I was totally surprised to see one in a local store. Tried it as a roller at Jones Park. Worked OK.

Lost DX Cobra in water on # 11
