OS Distance Driver-Solace

Stable/Undertable Distance Driver-King

OS Control Driver-Firebird

Stable Fairway-Teebird

Stable mid-Roc

Approach-Scale

Putter-Wizard

I don't actually have any experience with any of your distance drivers, so I'm just going off of gut feeling there. I use XXX instead of Firebirds, but close enough there. Teebirds get some use in my bag. Roc's for long approaches and shorter (200-250') drives. Scale is my bread and butter, what my approach game is based on. Used about as much as my putting Wizards in a typical round (could putt with the Scale as well).

Thanks for the input so far!

I'll leave it up for one more day before closing so we can get a few more votes in.

I'll probably play Oregon Park, I have the most rounds there so I wouldn't have to play it again for a control round as long a short the weather is normal.

Okay, so after reviewing the results my democratic bag will be thus;

Force
Cannon
Firebird
Teebird
Buzzz
Scale
Wizard

It's a very different look from my normal bag, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it does!

So today I played the DGCR bag round.

I played the Gold tees and baskets at Oregon Park, I have the most rounds on that course all time so the control aspect was already taken care of.

It is a Par 59 course and I have averaged 50.6 this year, so my goal with this largely foreign bag was a 51. Which I felt was lofty but doable. The first thing I noticed; I missed my Atoms. The Wizard is a really good putter, but the large bead and depth threw me off. The putts in the circle still went in, but outside it was hopeless. The wobble I got from inconsistent releases and the added fade meant the putts were often just above the cage.

Also I missed my Westside discs. The Scale while great never fades as sharply as the Harp. The Buzzz can hold a lot of lines, but it can't shape the like a Bard. The Teebird actually should have been fine, but the one I have is oddly LSS Stable while somehow being very flippy at high speeds. It was almost like a 7/3/-2/3 instead of the intended. And the Cannon has all the issues that the King does, but the grip and bigger rim made it harder for me to hit lines that I usually can nail in my sleep with a King.

You let me keep my Firebirds, and I threw them great. In fact I used them for more shots on the course than ever before. It got me 2 birdies on holes where I usually throw another disc, but because I was not as confident in the equivalent I had in the bag, I went FB and it was glorious. Even used it to approach a few times when I needed a bigger fade than anything slower in the bag could.

But one thing this exercise did was that's it made a course i often play on autopilot feel freash and challenging again. I did shots on the same old holes with different discs and methods and made it work. That was a cool feeling.

So if you made it trough all that, it was probably to hear my score. And I got the 51 I was looking for.

So in this case it was the archer not the arrows. But the process made me so much more thankful for my normal arrows.
