Time for a big write up. Why? I'm trying to put off cleaning. It's working pretty well.

Vitals:
Years playing/experience: Five years according to this website
Right/left-handed/ambidextrous: right-handed
Throwing Style: RHFH 90% off the tee, pretty even mix of backhand and forehand on approaches
Golf Distance (avg/max*) for putter/mid/driver:
I have no clue honestly. It's been so long since I really played. But I was putting beat Vipers and XLs around 300 before, so it's probably the same. Slower things go less far.

Optional:
Age: 24
Sex: M
Injuries/handicaps?: None that I know of
Other sport proficiencies?: Wii Sports Bowling
What do you like/dislike about your current bag?: It has pretty colors.
Specific areas of desired feedback: I dunno. Just say something.
Immediate and long-term goals: Get better.

"Distance" drivers

Purple or white TP Hatchet depending on if there's snow or not
-Goes real far like (for me). Flies like the numbers say for me, which is a bit worrisome as everyone says they're flippy. Ah well, noodle problems. Glides forever.
Pink TP Boatman
- Interesting disc, as I said in my previous post. Good HSS, not much LSS. Longer Teebird? I don't know I've never thrown one. Anyway. Surprisingly easy to throw. This is also a bit worrisome, as it might actually be a flippy Boatman for a better player. Anyway. Flies like my FLX or flat X Avengers with a bit less bite at the end. It's interesting how it flies like a speed 9 with a speed 12 rim. But I dig it.

Notes: Might eventually move to a VIP and TP of both drivers, with a stronger Hatchet filling in between the TP boat and Hatchet. Once the boat gets a little wear. I wonder if a VIP Boatman bites a little harder at the end? I may have to add something with a stronger fade if it doesn't. Utility disc style.

XL Assortment

Beat Pink X
-It's literally in the first post of this thread. It's still hanging around. Low power drives, turnovers, and stuff.
Blue ESP XL
- I've repeatedly said I don't like this particular disc but for some reason it's in my bag. A bit stronger than a new X, but hopefully it'll beat in faster than my Zs.
Red Z
-Less glide, more control. Good frisbee.

Notes: I also got two more Zs. One has a little more dome than the red and a bit lower plh, the other has a higher plh. Looks pretty beefy. For an XL. Haven't thrown them yet.

Vipers!

Roughed up Pink DX
-My first Viper. It's kinda worn in. Has a bit of turn to it, and less fade. Great glide, can go far.
White DX
-It's a fresh Viper. Overstable. But not as overstable as...
Pink Champion
-Utility disc. That's all it is. Crazy os.

Notes: Uh. Hisssss.

Midranges:

Pink Bio Suspect
-I'm still getting used to it. Kinda low glide, pretty os but not like super os. Good for placement. Good for not overlapping with Vipers.
Pink and Purple X Comets
-At the moment they're the same. The pink has a bit more wear on it. I'm waiting for it to really get worn in. Comet stuff.

Notes I guess?: If the Bio Suspect gets worn in I'll probably put in another. Or I could get a Classic to speed things up a bit.

Putters:

Green Soft Shield
-Putts.
Blue Medium Shield
-Throws. Lowish glide. Moderately OS. Good placement disc.
Beat to **** R-Pro Polecat
-Also one of my oldest discs. Does anything I want at no power. Smooth turn at low power. Paper plate at high power. For tricky stuff.

Notes: I might try a Lat 64 Beetle in place of the Polecat. Because beetles are heroic.

Another update. I'm not really sure why, all I've done lately is play a nine hole pitch and putt behind a school. Anyway.

Got some shiny new discs, so...

Distance drivers: VIP Boatman and Hatchet are in right now. I haven't actually thrown them yet, I just wanna see how they fly before I pick which plastics of these discs to carry.

XLs are the same.

Vipers: Swapped out the fresh domey DX and Champ for a flat DX. It's somewhere between them, I usually just do this when I want to free up a slot.

Comets are out for the time being. Fugitives are back in, Classic and a Biofuzion. They're pretty similar, with the Fugitive having a tad more zip and stability than the Comet. Still super straight and does anything, just has a bit of bite at the end instead of laser beams. I also either need to dig up more classics or beat up this Bio.

Put in a Classic Soft Suspect. Looks super beef compared to my Bio, but I haven't actually thrown it yet. It'll be interesting.

Swapped out my Medium and Soft Shields for a VIP and my old Trilogy Challenge one. Which is a medium, so I guess that part doesn't really matter. Haven't thrown the VIP yet, but it'll probably just fly like a fresh Shield. Has a bit more shoulder than the BTs, but that always seems to be the case with premium putters.

Not really much of a change. But I did learn I really like how Biofuzion feels.

I think I've settled on my bag for this year, so... Family pictures!

The whole gang plus back ups/alternates



Putters - The TC and green guy are just for putting, since I don't want to lose the TC and the green will get lost when things get growing. Blue and red are for throwing. Usually a thrower and a putter, and the Polecat in both bags.



Mids - I've been trying to work in the Classic Fugitive. Bio and Lucid fly the same. Usually Bio, Classic Fugitive and both Suspects in both bags.



Fairways - I got me some more XLs. Usually a Z, ESP or fresher X, and the beat pink X in both bags. Favorite disc right here. With the Vipers, it's yellow DX and pink DX in the Crunch Box, White DX, Pink DX, and Pink Champion in the Ranger.



Distance - One of each for the Crunch Box, two of each for the Ranger. The purple is definitely a backup, as it's invisible without snow on the ground.



And that's it. I may try the Lat 64 Beetle when it comes out in the Polecat spot, but other than that I think I'm set. And pictures!

What? Another update? Okay.

I actually played. New discs are really nice.

VIP Shield: Flies like a Medium Shield. This is the first time I've thrown a premium putter that flies like the baseline. I dig it.

Classic Soft Suspect: It's a beefcake. Also hit and stick. Nice.

Yellow Z XL: Beefier than my other Zs. Almost approaching standard Teebird stability. I think. Never thrown one. A regular Teebird. Not the beefy whatever Brinster pfn whatevers. Good.

VIP Hatchet: Flies real good like. Woo.

VIP Boatman: Flies like I thought a high speed OS disc would. Less OS than my Z Avenger, more than my FLX Avenger. More than my TP. It's what I wanted.

I threw all of my discs in a field right after the round. Important notes: Hatchet goes really far, glide and all that. Yellow Z XL does not flip up. ESP does, but it's not flippy. My farthest throw was actually with my beat Viper on like a perfect rip. Maybe went 15 or so more feet than the Hatchet. It's easy to tell how someone got a distance record with it.

More notes: I may need something more OS than the Hatchet if I ever get throwing farther. My dad has a Northman he doesn't use. I think. I'm gonna try to snag it from him. And his TC Shield. Hehehehe.
