Default My slimmer summer bag.

I have been trying to disc down form higher speed drivers for the summer. I was throwing wraiths, nukes etc...about 360 max before.

Now Im throwing:

Flx Predator
Z Predator
2 X Preds

12x Champ Teebird
Champ Teebird

2x 175 Opto Rivers

Z Buzzz
ESP Buzzz

Z Meteor

Challengers for putting/ driving approach

Any thoughts on what I may be missing? I can cover most shots with those discs. I throw RHBH mostly but have a decent forehand.

Looks good, bravo on the X Preds.

Would you considered even dropping the Preds? Also the Teebirds are redundant with beaten in preds. So I think you could drop those two.

Would you consider a catch disc?

I'd say you could cut it down even more honestly. What kind of gap on the esp and z buzzz? Is the esp nice and beat? If so that's a good combo but then why the need for a meteor? That is no different than a beat esp buzzz but maybe a little more LSS fade. What's the difference in two rivers at the same weight and plastic? Has one been used a lot more or are you just carrying two in case you lose your main? I like the use of different plastic predators but why two in elite X? I guess it's the same question as the rivers. The only thing I would consider missing is a good utility disc. What that is for you I can't say.

how far are you throwing these discs? weights? read the bag sticky and fill in some of the other info.

i think you could benefit from throwing some lighter plastic. also cut down on some of the drivers. there is overlap and also, part of the intent of discing down is to force you to use each disc for multiple purposes. cut it down to three maybe 4. if you like the teebird, look around the marketplace for some beat in 170ish dx teebirds. you need some flippy plastic.
