Very solid bag. I could take a lot of this bag out to the course and have a lot of fun with it.

Happy to see that Polecat in the bag.

Does your Cheetah and Leopard overlap? Especially since you're hyzer flipping the Cheetah?

Thanks! The Cheetah and Leo probably overlap a bit, I tend to throw the Cheetah on tighter wooded holes, where as I use the leo on more open holes. The only shot that the leo can do that the cheetah can't is a longer turnover shot that I occasionally use on 2 holes. The Cheetah will still come back left but the Leo will not.
The Leo is definitely a candidate to get taken out, I have a bit of a soft spot for it. It was the first disc I felt I could actually intentionally throw different shots with.

Cool beans. The reason I asked is because I have a 175g DX Cheetah that I got at a clearance sale. I like the disc a lot Only problem is that it's a 'tweener', with the Leopard3 flying a bit longer (my Leo3 flies longer than my Leopards, too), and I can push my Pink Panther a little harder for Cheetah-'ish' shots if I need to. (Side note: my Pink Panther has a relatively high PLH and is not as understable as many of today's domey Panthers.)

I still might sneak my Cheetah back in the bag as part of my 'DX plan' (where I throw cheap discs near water or other places where the DG gods might claim sacrifice).

A bit of an up and down week of DG for me. Harmony Bends is playable now after all the flooding, shot my personal best (red tees) of 2 under, unfortunately #18 cost me my beloved Cheetah. It hit the very top edge of the creek bed and rolled down. Ugh. Very muddy to fish it out, so I took a risk to leave it and go back for it the next day with appropriate footwear and it was gone

Putters
175g McPro Aviar (putting)
175g DX Polecat (long putts/approach)
175g Yeti Aviar (driving putter)
175g R-Pro Rhyno (FH, approach) - also have a DX I'm trying to beat in (super OS currently)

Mids
175g DX Cobra -
180g DX Roc - fairly new (lost the older beat in one to a pond)
175g Star Mako 3 - understable
175g DX Gator -OS, FH


Fairways
172g DX Cheetah - New, still needs beat in to get it where I want it
170g DX Leopard - new as well, as me previous one met is hanging out in a pond after an ill-advised turnover
166g DX Teebird - straight flyer (probably accounts for 2/3 of my drives)
169g Champ Teebird - stable

175g DX Thunderbird - FH, utility
168g DX Sidewinder - still experimenting, getting better with it but still have more confidence in the Teebirds

Almost bought a Star Lion to try out but I promised my wife I was only going to replace my lost Cheetah.

Played for the 1st time in a couple weeks last night at Harmony Bends (red), started off poorly but managed to fight back and finish 1 under. The Bag is basically unchanged from a few weeks ago.

Putters
175g McPro Aviar (putting)
175g DX Polecat (long putts/approach)
175g Yeti Aviar (driving putter)
175g R-Pro Rhyno (FH, approach) - I haven't been clicking with this the last few rounds, not sure if its me or the disc, seems to have lost some stability

Mids
175g DX Cobra -
180g DX Roc - fairly new (lost the older beat in one to a pond)
175g Star Mako 3 - understable
175g DX Gator -OS, FH


Fairways
172g DX Cheetah - New, still needs beat in to get it where I want it
170g DX Leopard - new as well, as me previous one met is hanging out in a pond after an ill-advised turnover
166g DX Teebird - straight flyer (probably accounts for 2/3 of my drives)
169g Champ Teebird - stable (didn't bag this yesterday and didn't miss it, considering taking it out for a new DX 175g TBird

175g DX Thunderbird - FH, utility
168g DX Sidewinder - feeling more comfortable with it, still using it on more open holes but I am getting more distance out of it

Played 6 rounds since the last update including my PB of -5 at Harmony Bends (red tees) also played in a doubles league for the first time.

Putters
175g McPro Aviar (putting)
175g DX Polecat (long putts/approach)
175g Yeti Aviar (driving putter)
175g DX Aviar3x (FH, overstable) -trying this out instead of the Rhyno (only 2 rounds with it so far), I had some store credit at the local shop from a doubles league win (AM)(woot!)

Mids
175g DX Cobra -Im not throwing this as much as I used to
180g DX Roc - starting to beat it nicely, this is probably taking shots away from the Cobra
175g Star Mako 3 - I have had some really nice throws with it lately also mixed in a few awful throws with it as well
175g DX Gator -OS, FH - haven't used it as much lately but I haven't had as much of a need for it either


Fairways
172g DX Cheetah - New, still needs beat in to get it where I want it
170g DX Leopard - new as well, as me previous one met is hanging out in a pond after an ill-advised turnover
166g DX Teebird - straight flyer (probably accounts for 2/3 of my drives)
169g Champ Teebird - stable (didn't bag this yesterday and didn't miss it, considering taking it out for a new DX 175g TBird

164g DX Sidewinder - quickly becoming my favorite driver on more open holes, I lost my previous 168g to a creek
175g DX Firebird used - experimenting a bit with this still haven't developed much confidence with it

I think I to pare down the bag a bit as this list is what I always have and then I usually add a couple other discs every round or so just to throw them bit. It has been a double edged sword, i have found some discs I really clicked with but also I'm not learning the other discs as well as I could be. Something to think about

Need some help paring down the bag for the remainder of the year:
I have put in BOLD the discs I'm almost certain of
Putters
175g McPro Aviar (putting)
175g DX Polecat (long putts/ "finessey" approach)
Driving Putter Slot - options I own: Yeti Aviar, KC Pro Aviar, also looking at buying a Firefly and James Conrad Aviar to try as well
OS, FH Putter Slot - options I own: R-Pro & DX Rhyno, DX AviarX3 - looking at Zone or Harp

Mids
Understable Mid slot - options Stingray, * Mako3, *Wombat3, Comet
Stable mid slot - between a DX Roc and Buzz - get a bit more distance from the Buzzz but its a bit more sensitive to my less than stellar form
175g DX Gator (OS, FH)


Fairways
170g DX Leopard - slightly understable, hyzer flips well and can hold a turnover when needed
171g DX Teebird - stable currently almost no turn with a mild fade
169g Champ Teebird - stable no turn with a bit more fade than the DX used a windier days

Drivers
Understable slot - options DX Sidewinder, Star Roadrunner - only really "need" these at Harmony Bends, could easily do without them on the other courses i play
Stable Slot - almost no experience with this slot may not be needed with my lack of distance
175g DX Firebird - haven't bagged this for long but it has definitely come in handy 1 or 2 times per round


Looking for suggestions or ideas/questions to think about. I'm not opposed to non Innova discs, I tend to gravitate to them because they are more readily available locally

Thanks

My only advice is for the forehand disc. All the discs you listed are good, so go with what is most comfortable for you to throw, which will likely be the one that also works best for you.

The AviarX3 was the most comfortable to throw followed closely by the r-Pro Rhyno however I cant get the flight I'm looking for. The AvX3 is a bit too glidey and I frequently go blazing by the basket, the R-Pro Rhyno has apparently had a bit of the fade beaten out of it. The DX rhyno is a bit hard and is more OS than my R-Pro ever was. I'm guessing the easiest solution is to either get a new R-Pro or beat the DX in a bit more.

You mentioned the Zone earlier. I don't know if you've tried it yet, but it's a great OS disc and may solve the issues you are mentioning. Since I switched from the Harp to the Zone, I'm loving my Ti Zone.
