Default What Is The Hardest Disc To Replace In Your Bag?

That's right folks: What is the hardest disc to replace in your bag. I don't care if it is some crazy OOP CE or that Roc or Teebird you have beat into perfection over 5 years.

Do you throw it on risky shots where you need that confidence to make it work or do you have it in a glass case...in your bag?

Z Predator from around 2005. I'm not sure what the weight is, but it does things new Predators can't. It makes me feel cool like Nate Doss when I can throw a Predator and get a little bit of turn on it.

I don't throw it in particularly risky shots, but I don't baby it either. One time I lost it, gave up my search, but then made the 40 minute drive back to the course... I found it! One day it'll bite the dust, and then I'll probably just settle for a Teebird. I've purchased two new Z preds with the idea of beating them in, but they have a LONG way to go.

I ask because I lost my perfectly beat 1st run McRoc3 in a posion ivy pit of no return today. I lost my seasoned neutral AJ Tour Series TB a couple weeks ago in a salt marsh. Spent an hour and a half in waders; when I saw the 4th cottonmouth I gave up.

So then what's up? Do you bag that special disc and throw the poop out of it or do you only use it for special "safe" shots?

Personally I feel no disc should be "safe" only. Why bag a disc and not use it? However, that doesn't mean I'd throw something I would be mad I lost over 200 foot of water to an island (as an example).

hmmmmm

sorta disagree. I have some discs I would rather not have at the bottom of a pond or lost in 200 feet of poison ivy. I'll use a DX disc maybe once every other round just to be safe. Maybe I gain a stroke once in a while but I reduce the utter depression of leaving a course without a fave disc.

I'm with ranger, but it depends on the line.

I am not a glutton for punishment. I have 5 holes at my home course that if I do not do work it disc is getting wet/ swamp or in posion ivy death. As much as it might hurt my game to have that perfect 0x Roc3 go to the Gods, I have probably parked that shot more times than not, so I'm OK with it.
