I'd go with the S EX for your DD just for continuity.

I'm curious as to why you throw such a light leopard. It seems like you would want a heavier one for better accuracy.

That's generally what I've done. I mostly just hate the color. Maybe I'll just throw it more often so I'll finally lose it so I can replace it with another.

I really like the Pro plastic for max D, if only they made Pro Eagles. I've thought about trying the Eagle-like OLF mold, the MOLF for this very reason as well.

The Leo doesn't get thrown much but regardless I can throw any weight pretty comfortably, it's my only natural disc golf skill really. I love it for shots where I'm stuck on the left side of the fairway on a left-turning hole, I just step out with a sidearm and hyzer-flip the sucker into a turnover.

BroD's biggest problem Sunday wasn't the rain, it was his doubles partner, who managed to hit more trees than anyone.

Getting frisky again. In blue are discs I'm trying out or come out depending on the course. My game is getting very approach oriented as I'm working on FH with putters and mids a lot more.

Drivers:
175 Ch. Eagle X - Go to
175 S.EX - overstable, high visibility disc, FH
155 Ch. Leo - Understable
175 Ch. Banshee - Overstable utility, OH
175 Star Starfire - beat to hell FH


Middies:
177 Opto Pain - Stable
177 Opto Fuse - Understable
180 C-MD2 stable, high visibility
178 Opto Fuse - high visibility
173 ESP Zone - overstable, skips, utility


Putters:
175 x-link firm Summit - short putts/straddle
170 x-link reg Summit - long putts/straddle
175 S Ion - driver
174 M Ion - FH
121 Ch. SuperSonic - lid stuff.

Do you really need the M Ion for just FH's,can the soft not double duty that?

It can be tough to get a good hyzer with the Soft b/c sometimes the flex causes me to wobble it.

Just noticed the last place comments from ex-Bikin jack. That ain't worth much.

Your game seemed pretty solid to me. I didn't really see the need for the CMD2 though. Just get a heavier Pain if you need more stability. And a brighter plastic if you need to see it. And if you don't like the Pain get a more stable mid.

I'm just throwing the MD2 for chits and giggles. I've got a 179 GL Pain that's ready to come off the bench as soon as my Opto Pain overlaps the MD2 completely.

are the distances listed on the first page still relatively accurate?

I would think shying away from max weight on the drivers would give you some more D and better control. Unless ya got a cannon arm you don't need heavy plastic. Just a thought.
