Default You ever feel like a disc wants to prove why it should be in your bag?

The reason I ask is, I was trying to make my bag very minimal on molds, and seeing as I couldn't push a fuse out to much further then 150, but could get a flippy buzzz 225 on anhyzer routes about 1/4 times I figured I would work with that and only use buzzz. Well I went to a place that is known for being easy to get aces so I threw the fuse back in, and boy was it a great idea. I got my first ace (cubby) on a 103 hidden behind a tree shot. And I also hit a 130 turn over shot hit the pole and bounced out. I almost got two aces in one round with it. Later on some of the bigger holes I was easily throwing this guy on 225 turn overs also.

Anyone else have that thought when you take something out, and putt it back in and see it work so much better then you remembered?

yep, the Squall won't go anywhere for me. I've tried Hornets, Wasps, Rocs, Scouts, Sharks, Cros, you name it...but the squall just proves time and time again that it deserves the stable-to-overstable spot for working lines.

Lol, I've been tossing my QMS's lately instead of my Nebulae, they're just too fun to throw.

The river is really making a strong push at the bag.

I bought a River a while back and threw it some. It didn't really have much of an impact on me or my game.
Then recently I realized that I was seeing some improvement in my game and decided to re-introduce the River back into my bag.
Great idea on my part... I've now added another River to the bag and am loving it so much!
That thing flies so nice! It's begging me to stay in the bag!

Yeah it's not nearly as understable as I thought it would be, but I've also been doing work with throwing less stable discs on hyzers, which has really helped me keep my OAT under control. I can pretty much make it do most of what my beat up Strikers do but with less overlap with the rest of my bag. I've been liking the Stalker, but never fell in love with it. A little more time with the River and I may start giving away my small pile of Stalkers.

Dude, the River is money!
I'm so happy I re-introduced it into my bag. I still suck, but the River is decreasing my suck for sure!

Star Cro. I bought one a couple of years ago when it was First-Run. I threw it for a couple weeks and was fairly unimpressed. I thought I would try it out again about 3 weeks ago, and I have been absolutely loving what it does. It compliments my Roc's perfectly as a great controlled hyzer upshot disc (and sometimes off the tee). I would have trouble leaving home without it.
