Default Bardu's Bag 2021

I played a few rounds in Emporia, KS this week, my first since May of last year. The Champ Thunderbird was a workhorse in the Kansas wind and the GStar Sidewinder and Soft Wizard cleaned up the rest.

Good to see you can get back out there

I'm guessing you putt with the Nikko Wizards since you bag 2? I switched to SS Wizards for putting last year. Wish I had done that years ago.

And thank you for doing the HOD so often. It's much appreciated. I look forward to it everyday.

Thanks! I do putt with the Nikkos. The Softs are for throwing. Gotta love Wizards!

I beat my personal best by five strokes today at Big Sioux:

167 4x Star Destroyer

175 2020 Sexton Firebird
175 2018 Sexton Firebird
167 12x Champ Firebird
172 4x Champ Thunderbird
168 HF Star Roadrunner
167 GStar Sidewinder
170 AJ Star TeeBird

177 Z Glo Buzzz
179 2019 MJ Comet

172 Z FLX Zone

175 Plasma Ion
171 Soft Ion
175 Soft Wizard
172 Soft Wizard
175 Nikko Wizards (2)

I picked up a Zone earlier this year and had played a few one disc rounds with it when I was still throwing left handed. It overlaps with the BT Hard Harp, but I may end up bagging both. I like the Harp better for finesse forehands and I like the Zone better for power forehands and especially for backhands. The Zone is just so smooth, I kept finding shots for it all day.

The GStar Sidewinder was on today, but the Champ Thunderbird is really coming into its own too.

Do you find overlap between the Roadrunner and Sidewinder? How do you use each of those discs?

Absolutely. To a large degree the are interchangeable. I carry the Roadrunner because I like having a second flippy driver. The Sidewinder is my go-to for pretty much everything: distance, woods, etc. I primarily throw hyzer-flips with it. The GStar plastic seasons quicker than Star or Champion though, so it's nice to have a compliment in plastic that seasons a little slower. I selected this Roadrunner because I like it better than any of the premium plastic Sidewinders I've found recently.

I'm going to bag a HF Roadrunner from time to time this year too. It's kind of like the equivalent to a Sidewinder compared to stock star Roadrunners. Plus it's a bit heavier than my stock RR's.

I played a few rounds in Pueblo, CO earlier this week. The bag looked about the same. The Plasma Ion has a nice stability. I used it for pretty much all putter shots that weren't putts. Pretty much everything else was Sidewinder or Roadrunner.

I played in a tournament yesterday using the bag listed above. It will be my only tournament this year, but I had a lot of fun.
