Sorry for all the bumps. Been over a foot of snow and three straight days under 0 degrees here. I have lots of time to change my mind. Hoping to have a bag all locked up by spring though.

Putters:

Only minor changes here.I dropped the zone and added in a Classic Soft Judge. I also put a lid back in my bag. A Discraft Rattler Seldom use a lid. But love having one for when I do need it. They are capable of lines no other disc is.

Mids: Going to toll without a OS or an US mid this year. Want to reteach myself adjusting the angle of the disc.

4 x ROC3 (Champ cycle [S/OS, S, S/US] and Gstar for grip and most OS)

Drivers: This is where the biggest changes are. Dropped down to baisically just speed 7's. The one round I did get in I was splaying Orcs all over the place. Had much better results just tossing the teebirds. So here is the final.

3 x Teebirds (2 champ one thrashed, one new; 1 gstar is the most true stable bird)
2 x River (Both 168, 1 fresh Opto and 1 beat GL)
2 x XXX (Really like this over the flicks. I tried the flicks but they just never clicked. So far so good with these. Also since they are slower. I am using them to cover my OS mid duties as well. 1 fresh opto, and 1 6/10 gold line)

So as of now those are the changes. 16 discs total and only 6 molds. With one of them just an uber utility lid. I think this bag is simple enough for me. Even sitting here I know exactly what I would take off the tee on almost all the courses around me weather pending. That is a really good feeling. I think my biggest enemy last year was never knowing what to throw. The indecision led to bad choices and not a whole lot of confidence of the tee.

One quick question for anyone that cares. I have some speed 9 discs available and I could bump down from the Orc without spending a dime. However. I would likely drop the River's before I dropped the Teebird. My question is, is there too much overlap between the Escape and the Teebird or can they live in the same bag? And as an Escape breaks in, does it become valk like?

Went out into the snow and absolutely killed it with the following setup. I played Independence Lake and shot a +2. Was in about a foot of snow but I have been meaning to get out for a long time and I figured might as well. Either way:

Putters: (Stripped down the number of putters I carry a little bit. But over all they are the same.)

3 x Judge (1 x classic hard for putts, 1 x classic soft for jumpers, approaches, and shaped putts, 1 x Lucid for drives)
1 x Pro D Rattler (Lid Shots)

Mids: (Tried the Roc3's and I loved the flight but I really prefered the base plastics. Like the feel and find them easier to range. I leaned heavily on mids as I played a lot of placement shots.)

3 x Ranch Roc (1 x OS KC Roc, 1 x S/OS Glow DX, 1 x 150 class DX Roc for floaters and weird shots)
2 x Comets (1 x Freshish X Comet S/US, 1 x Thrashed X Comet Rollers)

Drivers (Just sticking with the fairways. I know I said I didn't care that I wasn't going to be pro and just wanted to have fun. But am killing it with fairways lately. Playing way more approach shots and just trying to improve course management)

4 x Teebirds (1 x S/OS Champ Teebird for winds and skips, 1 x S Gstar for straight drives, 1 x US Champ Teebird for turnovers, 1 x 168g DX Teebird for max distance)
2 x Leopards (1 x DX Leopard [working in for rollers], 1 x Pro Leopard turnovers and between rocs and teebirds)
2 x XXX (1 worked in goldline for BH OS duties, 1 x Opto for Utility (FH Rollers, skip shots, OH shots)

So there she is. Bag worked out really good for me. I still might throw an Orc or Wraith in if I know I am going to a course with bomber holes. But for the most part that won't be part of the core bag, just depends on the course. I have a huge focus on general health and course management this year. It is already starting to pay off. So yeah pretty excited it is all shaping up.

I think I am finally ready to give up on the Roc. I have been trying to force it because of popularity and all the championships. Though I am just not getting the consistency that I used to get with the buzzz. I am moving back to the buzzz. The only reason I ever went away from them is these forums had me convinced they don't cycle at all and are not great in the wind. I was out in the wind today and they for the most part were unaffected. I was really jiving with it today. And glad to be bagging them again.

Putters:

1 x Classic Hard Judge (All Putts, jumpers and otherwise)
1 x GBO Fuzion Judge (Most upshots, shaped putts, putter drives)
1 x ESP Zone (OS Utility, skippers, FH utility)

Mids:

2 x Gold Flying Squirrel (Turnovers, rollers, hyzerflips)
1 x Z Buzzz (Heavier, first disc I bought, bagged for 5 years stored the last 2. Nice and striaght)
1 x Big Z Buzzz (169g, all the heavy ones were picked over. Handled the wind find, nice and stable)
1 x Champ Shark3 (Longer OS approaches, main FH Mid. Easier to range. Between buzzz and drone)

Fairway Drivers:

2 x Champ Teebirds (1 fresh for hyzers and winds, 1 beat for nice turnovers)
1 x Gstar Teebird (Dead straight high power lazer beams)
1 x DX Teebird (For turnovers until a premi plastic one gets there)

Distance/Utility:

2 x Champ Orc (1 S/OS for FH distance, 1 S for BH field distance)
2 x Z Flick (1 super heavy one for utility shots, 1 x 150class for OH shots)

So this bag has been pretty solid on the courses around me. I used it for the last couple weeks. I can't wait for this melt fto finish. In the supper skip shots and rollers are a big part of my game. Taking that away in the winter is rough. I switched back to the Z Flick because the snow gobbled up my XXX's so I will wait to past judgement till I test them on some FH cut rollers and skippers.

So yep. There she is, not overly minimal but also still feels pretty simple. I know all of these molds pretty well (with the exception of the Flick) as they have all been workhorses in the past. I am liking this setup and feel it has a lot of shots covered. I would feel confident with this bag at any course I could come to.

Drivers - 3 molds - 8 discs
Mids - 3 molds - 5 discs
Putters - 2 molds - 3 discs

Nice, simple bag. I am jealous of setups like this, I just can't seem to drop all the specialty molds.

Got a gift card to my local disc shop for my birthday and went by to pick some stuff up.

Got a new GL XXX (167g) and now will be using 2 XXX instead of the Flicks. Also bought a Hornet to test out. Wondering if it will fill the shark3 slot. I heard it is a little faster. It is a lot flatter. Like the way it feels FH a little more. So I will be testing that out.

Finally I lost confidence in the Judge. I don't know what happened. I have just been clanking the tops of the baskets non stop. I cannot dial it in. It has also started to feel a little off in my hands (too shallow). I honestly don't know what happened for the last two years I thought I was set for life. Looking to can everything 100 in. It was like a switch flicked. The last 6 months have been SHAKY. So for the time being I have moved back to the Wizard. And I am really liking it. Has made a big difference for me for the time being.

I have been absolutely killing it lately. In the past 15 days or so I have set new PR's at 4 of the courses around me (Hudson mills Monster and Classic, The Gulch, and Independence Lake). My bag has also not changed this whole time. Here is what I have been carrying and what I think I have finally settled in on...

Putters: (Wizard has taken over almost every shot 200 and in.)

2 x SS Wizards (One for chains only (about 45 and in) and one for most putter tee shots) [175g]
1 x RFF Wizard (Jump Putts, most BH approaches, spin putts, shaped putts, turbos) [176g]
1 x Cryztal Z Zone (Most FH approaches, short flexers, fh rollers, utility) [176g]

Mids: (Been lights out with the Rancho Roc lately, idk why but I could never get the ROC3 to click, and haven't been that consistent with Buzzz's for anything but drives lately and the Roc came in to save the day.)

1 x KC Pro Roc ("OS" Roc, hyzers, some FH work, tight flexers) [177g]
2 x Glow DX Roc (One is workhorse mid, the other is its matching backup) [176g]
1 x DX Roc (Yammered up, flies like a slightly seasoned X Comet. Gave it to a friend when he was just starting 2 years ago, just traded a champ Roc3 for it back) [171g]

Drivers: (Teebird has completely changed my game, tons and tons of confidence both BH and FH. Gets taken off most tees.)

1 x Pro Leopard (US utility, not thrown much. Thumbers, short straight shots, turnover FH shots) [171g]
2 x DX Teebird (These are my main distance discs. Carry a heavier one and a 150 class. Will use the heavier one most of the time, and the 150 when I have a somewhat constricted run up or want to throw a lower power shot and still get the disc to sail.) [171g and 150g]
1 x E* Teebird (This is my main workhorse teebird. Straight with fade, can manipulate it on to a lot of different lines) [167g]
1 x Champ Teebird (Main FH teebird, also most OS teebird. Hyzers and FH's for the most part. Some OH work) [175g]

Utility Drivers: (Love the XXX. For me it has the firebird flight at the Banshee speed. It is a little more OS than the banshee, but has the glide to make up for it. Been great for me.)

1 x Gold Line XXX (This one has a decent dome and kind of a see through flight plate. This gets most air work both BH and FH.) [165g]
1 x Opto XXX (Super concave, amazing plastic. Gets most utility work. OH's, scoobies, aggressive flex shots, fh rollers) [177g]
1 x Pro Wraith (I think I have only thrown it once the past half a month. Doesn't ever hardly see use. I like it for big high forced oat shots. Nice flex lines. I don't really have the arm for it, but it handles that shot better than the teebirds, and goes farther than the XXX's. I mostly play the straight game, but sometimes I need a flex shot. Or for real gusty tee shots.) [170g]

So thar she blows. Mostly off the tees I am just taking a wizard, roc, or teebird. The rest are all kind of utility. The support staff if you will. I have been playing some very consistent golf with this setup lately.

The pro wraith was switched out for a couple of Orc's. I am able to get them to speed a little better than the wraith. Still wont get thrown much, but will offer me other lines than the teebirds.

Been on an absolute tear lately. My bag has remained for the most part unchanged for the last 10-15 rounds. Played a lot of disc golf this past weekend and may have finally fine tuned my bag. Finally throwing around 300 consistently with my teebirds. I know that isn't great distance but I have been at the 250 golf distance plateau for a little over 3 years now. So either way this is what the bag looks like...

Putters: Wizards won out over the judges. Been really really killing it with them

2 x SS Wizard (1 for putts only, 1 for tee shots)
1 x RFF Wizard (Approaches and spin/shaped putts; canned a fairway ace with it from 180 out last weekend on a stand still shot. What an amazingly predictable disc)

Mids: Liking the Rancho Roc a ton

1 x KC Pro Roc (This is my OS Roc, hyzers and approaches)
1 x DX Glow Roc (Workhorse Roc)
1 x Beat DX Roc (Super stable, like a worn in Z Comet with more wind resistance. Money.)
1 x X Comet (This one is worn in for hyzer flips and turnovers. Some roller work.)

Drivers: A little clunky, but have no problem knowing what to throw when.

1 x DX Leopard (Max weight, turnovers, straight shots between roc and teebird, thumbers, rollers)
2 x DX Teebird (171g workhorse off the tee getting straighter and straighter, 150g low power straight shots)
1 x E* Teebird (Hyzers and Flexers. Forehand fairway.)
1 x GL XXX (168g with a dome, this gets most BH and FH OS work)
1 x Opto XXX (Max weight and concave, goofy approach shots, FH rollers, skip shots)
1 x Lucid Escape (Max flex distance)
1 x Biofuzion Escape (Straight distance)

So what do ya'll think? I know it isn't the cleanest setup where it comes to drivers but I don't generally have any trouble knowing what to take off the tee. And if I am ever in doubt I usually end up just reaching for the DX Teebird. Just super versatile off the tee.
