So, Im going to be playing in my first ever tournament this year and I wanted to have a thread to keep track of whats in my bag and when. I throw RHBH, max distance is about 325-350 feet. I use a Infinite Discs Stealth bag, so I can carry 8 discs which suits me just fine. I feel like limiting my discs makes the choices easier on the course. Please give any advice or suggestions that you may have to help me improve my bag. Thanks.

In the bag:

Putt/Approach
Soft Magnet, 173g, putting putter, have a practice stack so Im committed
Origio Harp, 173g, approach/upshots, new and I love it

Mids
Origio Tursas, 178g, US midrange, very accurate for me
VIP Bard, 176g, OS midrange, reliable fade every time
DX Condor, 186g, OS/Stable midrange, floaty/Roll-y fun

Drivers
Opto River, 170g, US Fairway, hyzer flips and long right finishes
DX Teebird, 175g, stable fairway, good fade at the end of long flight
Z Crank, 170g, max distance & FH, overall neutral flight path

Other available discs:
XT Bullfrog, 170g
Soft Glo Roach, 170g
SS Wizard, 176g
DX Zephyr, 140g
Prime Truth, 178g
Star Rat, 172g
DX Condor, 193g
Star Destroyer, 172g (too much disc)
Z Flick, 172g (too much disc)
DX Leopard3, 167g
Champion Sidewinder, 175g
Champion Teebird, 171g (too much disc)
DX Thunderbird, 170g

Nice bag. Only issue I see is going straight from the Teebird/River (speed 7) combo straight to the Crank (speed 13). The River is a great disc, but I might put the Champion Sidewinder in the River's place.

Looks pretty good, I would drop the condor and crank and bag the DX thunderbird or sidewinder as your max distance driver. At 320-350~ those should both fly more consistently and closer to their intended flight than the crank will. You may want to add a traditional neutral midrange in place of the condor, something along the lines of a roc, shark or buzz. Don't hold back on throwing the magnet as an approach disc along with the harp, a stable to understable putter approach is a thing of beauty. That said, good spread of choices, throwing what you feel comfortable with matters most.

Thanks, I had actually thought about trying to get the Sidewinder in the bag but every time I try to throw it I end up sending it straight into the dirt. For whatever reason, I just havent quite figured out how to release that disc yet.

I appreciate your input but I wont drop the Condor, I just like it too dang much. But the Crank could easily be swapped out for the DX Thunderbird. It flies very well for me. Im still learning the Magnet but I think it will also come in handy for touchy approach shots. Thanks!

Crank for Thunderbird sounds good.

As to the Sidewinder, if you're having problems with it, look into the Infinite Discs Sphinx. Awesome disc, the Sphinx is.

Played a round today, overall a lackluster performance at +10. However there were quite a few good shots. I took the Thunderbird instead of the Crank, as suggested.
Putt and approach setup will remain unchanged.
Mids, I’m taking out the Bard because I didn’t throw it, those shots went to the Harp. Made a +/- 140’ throw in with the Condor on hole 7.
Drivers, I will keep the River but swap my DX Teebird for the Champion Teebird and the DX Thunderbird instead of the Crank.
So I have one spot left in the bag. I was thinking of getting in some field work with the Sidewinder to see if I can put it in there. Or maybe a neutral midrange.

I'd run:

Magnet
Harp
Tursas
Dx Teebird
Champ Teebird
Champ Sidewinder

The Dx Teebird will season to be US and the Champ can cover OS/stable lines

Got in some good field time today. We weren’t able to figure out the course, so we just picked baskets and threw from one to another. Had my longest yet throw to hit metal at 313’ with my DX Thunderbird. I also got a new colorshift Z zone that I tested. I really liked it. Very consistent, very OS and comfortable for forehand. It’s quite a bit longer than my harp but otherwise not too different. Moving forward the bag will consist of :
Soft magnet for putts and shorter approaches
Z Zone for long approaches and OS mid slot
DX Condor for rollers and stable/OS mid
Origio Tursas for US midrange duties
Opto River for hyzer flips and US fairway
Champ Teebird for OS fairway
DX Thunderbird for straight to fade distance

That leaves one slot left in the bag. I’m still planning to field test the Champ Sidewinder but so far I don’t really care for that disc.

What's the Condor fly like for you? I've never thrown one and have always been intrigued. What's it doing that a typical stable mid-range can't?
