I bought a GStar Teebird the other day and I really like it. More glide and less stable than my champ Teebirds and my star Teebird. Maybe look into that for a premium plastic to pair with your DX. I love the DX but using the GStar some saves some of the wear on my DX.

Once I got my DX Teebirds to 320 or so is when I added a premium plastic one and a sidewinder to throw on occasion. I use the sidewinder as a test for my progress but still rely on those Teebirds and cheetahs for most drives.

Sounds like I should try a gstar teebird. I'm also considering dropping scales. I want to love them, but I'm choosing between them and rhynos. What puts the rhyno ahead is it fh's better. Ugh. On the positive side, getting more comfortable with the krait. It definitely adds some distance, but needs a nice controlled fh release. Bh I can put everything on it and watch it go.

Dropped Scales, sorry JCass, the Rhyno just fits my FH better. For the first time since coming back to DG about 8 months ago, and probably since I started playing, I feel like I have an actual setup. I have the staples of any bag locked down (PnA, mid, & fairway) and are very comfortable with them. So I'm really hoping that I can come back and have the same core setup for at least a couple years.

Core:

DX Rhyno - putter(beat)
DX Rhyno - approaches & short drives(fairly freash)

S Scout - main mid, tunnel shots(getting beat)

DX Teebird - main fairway(fairly fresh)

Backups & Utility:

DX or Champ Rhyno - backup(fresh)

S Warrior - mid flex shots or moar fade(getting beat)
Champ Gator - short to mid utility shots(fresh)

DX Teebird - backup(fairly fresh)
Gstar Thunderbird - wind disc, long utility(fresh)
Blizzard Krait - max D(fresh)

Made a couple purchases to try out, don't know why when I'm trying not to mix up the bag.

DX Rhyno - putter(beat)
DX Rhyno - x2 approaches & short drives(fairly freash)

S Scout - main mid, tunnel shots(getting beat)
Evo Scout - backup (fresh)
DX Gator - utility (trying to beat)

DX Teebird - x2 main fairway(fairly fresh)
DX Thunderbird - max D (fresh)
Gstar Thunderbird - utility (fairly fresh)

10 discs, 5 molds and the core is still in place. I doubt the Gator can ever break in to the tunnel shot master that the Scout is, even so I'm loving the flight. Also found out that DX Thunderbirds bomb with a strong forward penetrating fade. Even with no dome the DX out flies the Gstar by 20-30ft. Plus the DX of the Thunderbird is sweet, firm and grippy.

DX Rhyno - putter(beat)
DX Rhyno - x2 approaches & short drives(one dinged, other fresh)

S Scout - main mid, tunnel shots(getting beat)
Star Atlas - testing(dinged)
DX VRoc - testing(dinged)
Glow Champ Gator - utility

DX Teebird - main fairway
DX Dragon - hyzerflips(older run, tuned it to a flattop/more stable)
DX Thunderbird - max D/wind(freshish)

Gave up on breaking in a DX Gator, mainly since I lost it. Didn't think it would ever end up where I wanted it anyway. Plus, for how much I play, cycling would have been almost impossible. So, now I'm trying out some other Innova molds in the mid slot. As much as I love the Scout, I guess I'm trying to get to one brand, the easiest one to find. Even then, I'm working towards all DX, except for utility discs. I think I'm doing it because I'm pretty much set on what I like, but still want to buy new plastic. Oh the lure of new plastic.

The bag is still in flux, even after the intent to not change it up. I do feel like I'm dialing in on what I want. So it is the mid slot that I've been auditioning for, with the most recent being the Cro. I used to throw Cro a few years ago and always felt like they were missing in the range department. The Scout, what I'm trying to replace, is long enough it overlaps on my Teebirds short end. So far I've only been testing Innova as it is the easiest to find around here, so that I could hand pick backups. So far, the VRoc is the favorite out of what I have tested and that leads me to believe that it is time to give the Roc/Roc3 another chance. I never cared for the Roc years ago when I threw it, but times have changed and so many people can't be wrong. However, the Cro will stay in the bag for awhile and receive more testing so that it gets a fair chance.

DX Rhyno - putter
DX Rhyno - approaches, short drives

DX VRoc - BH mid shots
DX Cro - testing
Star Cro - Testing
Glow Champ Gator - old skool OS mid stuff
S Scout - tunnel shots

DX Teebird - main fairway
DX Dragon - pfn, flattened, max d, flips
Gummy Glow Champ Teebird - testing

DX Rhyno x3 - putter and two drivers/approaches

DX VRoc - straight mid
DX Roc - testing
Star Gator - OS mid
Glow Champ Gator - beef

DX Dragon - US fairway, max d
DX Teebird - main fairway
Gummy Glow Champ Teebird - OS fairway, utility

Finally got out and played the other day, wasn't much fun in the 30 mph wind gusts. Made me glad I had put the Star Gator in tho. Really wanted to get out and test the DX Roc and GGC Teebird, but the wind made it pretty hard. We played at the pitch and putt since my boys came and I doubt they enjoyed the wind either. But the Star Gator stepped up and took 90% of headwind shots and most putts. Never a good putter, but it was an easy adjustment to the Gator and I putted as well as normal despite the wind. Hope to get back out soon and really put the Roc to work.

Took this out this past weekend:

2x dx Rhyno - one putting & one approaching
Electron Atom - testing

Dx VRoc - straight mid
Dx Roc - testing
Andro C - testing
Star Gator - gator stuff

Dx Dragon - tuned to US teebird
Dx Teebird - straight fairway
Glow XG Champ Teebird - beef fairway

Taking this coming weekend:

3x Dx Rhyno - one putt & two throwers
Electron Atom - testing

Evo Scout - straight mid
Andro C - slight os mid
Star Gator - gator stuff

Dx Dragon - flip machine
Dx Teebird - main fairway
GGC Teebird - beef fairway

One of these days I'll get a Dx Teebird back to flippy and replace the Dragon. Flattening it helped it's stability but killed the glide. It's hard not to like because the plastic reminds me of Dx Thunderbirds. The Andro C performed well and I look forward to throwing it a bunch now that I have a better idea of what it can do. The Atom was hit and miss for me. It doesn't really have a place in my bag but I have been wanting to throw some Gyro. Had I known that Electron Vectors were coming I would have waited for them.
