Default BroD's screwing with his bag again!

I haven't done one of these in awhile, and since I'm bag critic numero uno I think I might have to comply with some sort of Equal Time law or something.
Plus I'm bored while I'm waiting on my broken foot to heal.

(avg/max on a blue moon)

Putter D: (260'/290')
Mid D: (280'/320')
FW D: (290'/340')
Distance D: (290'/350')

Distance Driver:
150 P-PD (DGR stamp, yippee!) bombs, lots of glide but only in the bag if there are LOTS of open bomber holes.

Fairway Drivers:
175 Champ Eagle-X - less glide, consistent, fights wind well
148 Star Eagle-X - My distance driver when I don't carry the PD, surprisingly stable.
164 Star Eagle-X - beat, long TOs.
170 Opto River - On trial Ch. EL on bench controlled TOs.

Utility Drivers:
155 Champ Leopard - Mr. Flippy (flips, rollers, crazy flicks)
175 Champ Banshee - Mr. Beefy (wind, spikes, FH rollers, OH)
175 Star Starfire - Mr. Flick

Mid-ranges:

173 ESP Nebula - Trips the light fantastic, workhorse stable-overstable
165 ESP Nebula - Straiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.
177 Opto Fuse - Annys galore, workhorse stable-understable
179 GL Fuse - On trial, will bench the 165 Neb if the room is needed.

Putters:
173 S ION - Wooded driver, risky P&A, long putts
174 M ION - putts, long approaches.
172 ESP Zone - On trial wind, skips, FH rollers, flicks aka utility putter.

Comments, queries, and clever insults are welcome.

"Only in the bag for LOTS of open bomber holes so I can maybe get 10' of extra distance over the Eagles."

I didn't find there was much of a distance gap b/w Eagles and PDs (even though it's a "7" to a "10") so....I don't get it.

Yeah, I haven't thrown it enough to actually know if it's worth keeping. My distances there are estimates based on my previous D with Distance drivers, who knows, I might be crushing it this Spring. Chances are, if it was a tourney round it wouldn't be in the bag but I'm flirting with faster discs since my form has grown leaps and bounds this past year.

I'm going to predict that the PD isn't enough of a distance jump to be in the DD slot. Methinks a Wraith might be alright for your D until you can upgrade to a destroyer.

Lose the Zone.

Also, why not use a beat DX EX for the U/S Fwy slot? I'm thinking of going that route but I'd like to hear thoughts from an Eagle thrower.

My 175 DX EX flies like a paper plate compared to my 155 Champ Leo, it's that flippy.

It performed that role admirably while it lasted, I could get another DX EX for that shot but since I hardly use them being utility drivers and all, it doesn't really matter. Plus, I'm apparently one of the few people that can throw different weights w/o being inconsistent.

See, what do you need us for? Just post your bag and critique it yourself. Looks like you got an Eagle addiction. What more does the River do for you in that regards? Are they not pretty close in flight pattern? I have yet to throw one myself.

I have to agree with Pink and say a Wraith or an Orc (just to get back use to using a DD) as you DD drivers. I may even go as far and say a Pro Katana to get some extra D.

Orc is no longer than a P-PD. For me when it was auditioned (and didn't find a spot in my bag) the PPD was longer than the rest of the speed 10-11 discs. Took less room to work than a wraith too. That said, I can crush one of my light Forces or my Z nuke further than I can a pd.
