I am looking forward to trying a single-brand bag this year. So far it’s brought me a feeling of peace and consistency. I wasn’t expecting that. Maybe if I can stop chasing the “perfect disc” for each spot I can focus on playing better. On the other hand, one of the great joys of this game is trying out new stuff... so we’ll see how it goes.

Switching main midrange to gateway prophecy

Currently in use is the compass, have one in recycled plastic that I was suppose to beat in; with Ricky leaving,I feel a little more free to try others, plus the disc didn't come in a plastic that cycled easy. Mainly used it to support the guy and when I started playing I had a major hate for beaded discs, not so much anymore. Have a diamond prophecy and has been working good, just need to get a sure grip one to beat it for a straight flyer.

I’ve done a thing where Iake a brand exclusive bag to play with alongside my main bag every year. I did Westside in 2017(many of those stuck in the main bag) Innova In 2018, and I think 2019 will be a Gyro year. I have a lot of it already Phases and Octanes/Mayhem for DD, Motion/Fireball in the control class, Crave(need one more) and Matrix with Envy and Atoms to putt. Need to try a deflector so I guess I’m excited to see if I can shoot just as well with MVP as a mixed bag.

For the record my Innova bag was slightly harder for me, but the scores did not change hardly at all. It’s all archer as long as the arrows aren’t absolute bunk.

This is why I never base a bag of discs off of specific pro players, just use the players to get ideas.

Forgot to mention some of the Infinite discs products, I’ve accumulated some points there and thought I’d throw some of them at their new discs like the Slab, and Exodus.

Probably a lot of DC, not because of McBeth, but because of my good experiences with their discs. I have a Cryztal Focus from Ledgestone 2017 on the way, I'm hoping to see how well it puts and approaches, since I'm bagging 3-4 putter molds and would like to bring that down to 2. Also the Corvette just because of the name. If I make Team Infinite (I think I made a compelling case for myself) I'll be trying to bag as much of their stuff as possible (hopefully they make a Roc-like mid that is truly concave, if not I'll just bag my Rocs and pick up a Taurus to replace my Wasp).

There is actually a team Infinite now? Cool, they could have one with the discs they are having produced though Innova Factory and the other discs from Innova factory being allowed. Before it was just a bag sponsor for players and if Not sponsored by a Disc Golf Disc Manufacture then you would be asked to use the discs from Infinite Discs.

However, with this Montana winter in full swing, it's going to be several months before I have much reason to huk a high speed driver.
Is there a specific run of Shrykes that make them SHRYKE!!s?

I really want to check out a Tremor, and at least hold a bullfrog in my hand. For some reason my tastes are more exacting for the stuff on the outsides of the stability spectrum.
