Thanks for the suggestion. All of my drivers are in the 150s but I like heavier for mids (166-8) and putters (170-2).

I have been throwing Colt/Stud since they came out. Love the flight, and love XT plastic for putt/approach discs.

Summer update:

Stud replaced Colt - I don't like how domey Colts fly.
Added a 153 Neutron Vanish for understable distance.

Distance:
157 Neutron Wave: main distance driver, very straight in the woods, flicks nicely
157 Pro Wraith: Reliable fade and very good distance when flexed
153 Neutron Vanish: I was missing a disc that I could turn from hyzer

Fairway/control:
158 Star TL: stable and workable
157 Plasma Insanity: understable, main woods driver (carry 1 or 2)

Midrange:
167 Fuzion EMac Truth: stable
167 400G M4: understable

Putters:
171 XT Stud: putting, straight approach. One fresh, one seasoned
171 Medium Harp: overstable approach, headwind putts

I have a bunch of domey KC SP Colts that you would be welcome to . . .

I suppose I should try the hot water flattening trick first, though.

Yes I like the XTs too.

If you really want to try a couple of the KCs, shoot me a PM with your address.

Fall update:

Dropped the Vanish - Plasma Insanity with a little height covers the same shots. I prefer when the bag is down to 9 or 10 discs.

Pretty much everything in the bag gets tossed backhand and forehand. Oddly, the Pro Wraith is probably the least-flicked disc.

Distance:
157 Neutron Wave: main distance driver, very straight in the woods, flicks nicely
157 Pro Wraith: Reliable fade, good distance when flexed

Fairway:
158 Star TL: stable and workable
157 Plasma Insanity: understable to S-curve, main woods driver (carry 1 or 2)

Midrange:
167 Fuzion EMac Truth: stable
167 400G M4: understable

Putters:
171 XT Stud x 2: putting, straight approach. One fresh, one seasoned
171 Medium Harp: overstable approach, headwind putts

Sticking with the TL's and the Wave... nice!!! I like the Insanity as a straight fairway too.. Good utilization it powers down well. I was tempted by those but I have a lot of Inertias, two of which are first runs at 155 and nicely broken in but sloooowly.

I pack two Waves these days mostly, a plasma and neutron then fairways. Big fan of plasma Wave decently less stable than Neutron and I think you have one so you know. I can't comment the other choices but I've heard good things..

Powering down is usually not a problem for me lol.

I threw Neutron Inertias for a while. Darn nice disc but too close to the Wave to keep both in the bag. Plasma Wave is also a darn nice disc, but I found it too close to Plasma Inertia to carry both. Sometimes good discs get left out.

Yeah once I discovered Plasma Insanity the S-FD's days were numbered. Star TL pairs better for headwinds, fades, etc.

And of course I used to Throw a Envy.

Solid bag! I could rock this bag... no, really, except for the EMac Truth, I have at least one of all these molds, and that bag would do pretty well for me.
