There's plenty of newer plastics that fly just like the older stuff (new flat JL Teebirds fly nice and stable). I just love the grip and durability of 11x plastic. Like most newer players, I tried dozens of molds until I found the ones that work for me. Hours of field work later, I feel I'm comfortable with my discs and like to think I can tell subtle nuances between different runs of Teebirds and Rocs at least. Just feels better in hand, giving me more confidence in my throws. Whatever works bro!

Discs are made to fly, not sit unthrown in boxes... Collector discs aside... I'll gladly trade 4 ponies for a horse!

But.old plastic aside, any glaring gaps ITB? I guess I could use a flippy glideless turd approach disc, but my beat Wizard seems to work fine. I'm really trying to FH when I can, the Zone for approaches, especially FH Anny shots . FH a Comet is an exercise in patience!!! The Eagle and 11x CAL TB are my go to FH off the tee, super flat and comfy. I don't even try FH Destroyers yet, definitely would mask form flaws.

You seem to have it all sorted out. No gaps unless you want to work thumbers and tomahawks in too. Your distances seem good enough to power up a fairway or dial back a distance driver for the "control driver" range. If you want to add another disc to the bag, check our a PD or Sexton Firebird to get a little more distance when it's windy and you might otherwise use the Eagle.

Quick question - What kind of bag do you use? My grip bag is stuffed to the gills with 23 discs and I don't use nearly as many midrange discs as you.

Thanks! Working on consistency more than distance. I lost at least 50' when I stopped strongarming throws, but very slowly have been getting it back. Went back to 350' golf distance for a bit, but even now I'm not driving 400+ everyday Some days I can't get a Destroyer 375', but its in the fairway more often, and some days its 425 and under the basket

I try not to throw Thumbers or Tommy's full power, but the Firechicken comes out then.. Without good form I'd rather not blow my elbow out, so distance OH shots are next on then practice list... I have a board flat pearly Orc that is an absolute pig, but I'd love to try the PD. I have Teebird abandonment issues it might be tough!

I rock the Gorilla Boy Kong on Phenix Quads. Ridiculously comfortable and surprisingly lightweight, and my 25 doesn't even max fill it! Looks brand new after hundreds of rounds. Gorilla Boy Disc Sports make fantastic bags, Simian is awesome too!

were you strong arming 450 before? Why not just stick with that? Was the accuracy that bad?

I'm a big fan of the glow tern by the way.

I was hitting 450' with semi decent form, not strong arming. I just can't brace as well as I used to, spinning out too much now.

Do you think about going back to the old form?
