Bag for 2 rounds at Bull Run for a weekday tournament tomorrow. I'm going into this blind outside of the course map on here and the distances on the scorecard. There are 3 holes over 400' so I'll probably need a couple wraiths and a lot of techie woods.
3xWraith
1xStarfire
2xTridents
1xFD3
1xF1
3xF2
4xM2
1xBreaker
2xPA4
Stego
Mercy

I can't decide between my beat Starfire and putting a fresh Star in the bag, I'll probably have one in the bag on in the trunk if I need to swap round to round. The bag is preeeettty full since I don't know what shots I'm going to need.

F1 is back in for now, I've been liking how it flies even though I'm stocked up on Proto F2s now. I'm also including my uber flippy F2

Oldest base M2 is in for this tournament, it's dumb flippy so I might need it.

I think I can get away with just bookending my mids with a Breaker for the OS slot, I can throw it about as far so I'm not losing a lot there and it simplifies a lot of shots.

If it's two rounds, pair down the bag for the first round. Simplify and dont make yourself over think. Once, you've got the layout add the others in to kick it in to high gear.

I always stay away from new discs at a tourney. Only discs I know well.

Thanks! Second round would have been hot too if I had hit my 15-20 footers, missed three of them and got a little tilted.
I should have slimmed the bag down some after the first round - any holes over 400' were complex enough in lanes to prevent the solution being a single shot so the wraiths were unnecessary.
Used the beat Starfire for a lot of flicks, the glow FD3 got a fair bit of use as well, it's so crazy overstable.
I thiiiiiink other than the wraiths I used every disc in my bag. Some I used 1st round and corrected to a different disc 2nd round. The course was pretty fun, the locals have done a great job renovating it. That being said, you can't fight mother nature, and this being the wettest year of all time means holes 10 and 11 were not playable, thus the weird scores.
928 and 901, not bad!

Traded for a couple Banzais and have been throwing them in a field some.
They're interesting, I like the handfeel and am definitely gonna try them out at a course sometime.
Starfires and thunderbirds feel like a shorter drive, whereas this seems like a longer fairway.

Discmas this past weekend. So exhausting, not serious rounds so I threw in some old discs I got from our secret santas. Not gonna do a full bag thing since most was normal, here are some odds and ends I threw that were different.
Megasoft Swan reborn - Understable, not quite as glidy as the PA4 but works the same super floppy and hilarious.
PD2 - G line and C line. Weirdly the C line goes further, both are nuts overstable. I bagged them for water shots.
D2 - Threw it once at Giles, it didn't flip enough and ended lost in thorns
Banzai - I'm actually really digging this disc, super forgiving and fun. I think it and the starfire will be in/out depending on conditions.
Enforcer - This year I got a sweet Cowboy Bebop dyed enforcer. It flies nice, grabbed me a 430 ft birdie with it; not as overstable as those PD2s

glow FD3 stayed in for now.

We played 18 at Giles long long, which was ROUGH and then 15 at Lake Marshall - 9 at Lambs, 9 at Lions. What a picturesque course, really amazing, highly recommend.

It's not as good as (I think) Kodachrome's profile pic but it's pretty sweet and it's got a cool strobe effect flying cause of the block/white rim.

Also I should say we at Lake Marshall we played the 9 from Lamb and then from the Lions holes 15, 17, 18, 10, 11, 12

I actually really liked a lot of the shots required at Lambs, Lions had some cool ones but felt a bit too field hole-y to me? I dunno, I'd like to round out all 12 Lions holes before forming an opinion.

How does a fresh 400 m2 fly? I’m thinking about trying to cycle them.

They fly nice. Definitely a work horse, and as they beat in they probably gain 15 feet or so before losing stability. 750 is definitely the most stable, and also the most durable so it's nice to have one as a permanent bookend.

400 also does take a long time to beat in. My oldest one I've been throwing it for probably 3 years and it will turn over some but also can hold most hyzers.

For windy windy days you will definitely need another mold though. I've been playing around it by either throwing a breaker or OS fairway into headwinds.
