I initially threw only Innova, but nowadays a significant amount of staples in my bag are Discraft.

For putters, I have a Banger GT that I like to use backhand off the tee into the wind. The thumb groove feels great in my hand. I also bag an Earhart Zone for the overstable approach slot.

Mids and Fairways are where Discraft really took over in my bag.
Mids: My go-to mid is the Buzzz SS in Z plastic. So much glide and such a cleaner release off the rim compared to the Buzzz. I can throw smooth, gentle turnovers about 320 off the tee. Great for straight shots and forehand runs at the basket. The Van Dyken Meteor is my max distance turnover mid that I can power up and still trust it to be in the vicinity of my target. Great for anhyzer flicks around obstacles.

Fairways: Go-to is the 2020 Ulibarri Raptor. Its a straigher Raptor than most, but still trustworthy to fight the wind and give me nice hyzers, skip shots, and forehand flex shots. 2021 Ulibarri Raptor is an absolute hook. I only throw it in extreme situations. Ledgestone Heat is my max distance tailwind driver that has a huge dome and can get out on a big turnover to about 440. 2021 King Heat is my go-to when I need to thread the needle in the woods. One disc I am curious about is the Undertaker but I am not sure if it will have significant overlap with one of my Heats or Innova Sidewinder. Any thoughts on this?

I have thrown Sidewinders, Heats, Undertakers and Rapptors at the same time and have had all in the bag.

Now i have one very OS Cryztal Raptor...3pc of Undertakers and one Flippy Heat.

The Undertakers have a huge range,,,,i have "close to Heat" US beat in Z to OS Missy 2020 to super OS MF Cryztal.

You can basicly have a few Undertakers as your only fairway- ...

I’ll second this, they’re the only fairway I bag and it’s been that way a while, they come in so many plastics it’s pretty easy to get a wide range of flights out of em which is why I’ve got six in the bag right now. Pro-D, Ti Swirl, ESP, Z FLX, First run Z and finishing off with a flat top 2020 LE Cryztal Sparkle which is for all intents and purposes a Raptor that says Undertaker on it. Those cover every shot angle/wind/flight shape that I need and all have different flights thrown flat in calm conditions from quick-down roller all the way to no-chance-of-turning-over OS.

I would say that Discraft has officially "caught up" after the recent online retailer drops... maybe not overseas or brick and mortar...but you can get just about any discraft mold online now.

Paul has a starter pack of discs on his website I thought were interesting. Soft Luna, x Malta and a x Zeus. 54.99 is pretty steep especially since all of these are base plastic.

Someone can probably flip it on eBay for $125 as a rare first run McBeth starter pack.

I'm looking for another putter line Zone, not soft. After checking 3 local shops, DGC, MST, OTB and Infinite - nada. They're even out of stock on the DC website.

Hook me up, bruh.

Maybe they just restocked them

But I understand if waiting 2-3 weeks from discraft would discourage you.

Interesting, I think it defaulted to an out of stock weight. No intention of ordering from DC, just wanted to see if they were in stock.

Since Emoney posted my brother bought some, I think through infinite. Maybe just some diligence and checking every day or so will score you some (I had looked for ESP Zones for my buddy and couldn't find any, a week later my brother pointed out every site you listed was full).

Like yourself I'm guessing everyone is still stockpiling plastic - in addition to new players of course.
