The disc golf gods shined one me again today. I saw a friend throwing a Starlite Wraith and it turned out to be the one that I had thrown for several years before I lost last it summer.

I think it's impossible to throw too many Firebirds. I really like your bag setup, nice and clean core set of discs.

Found a 5x JK Valkyrie at a garage sale for $4 and I can’t believe I’ve been playing without this mold. It has turn, fade, and monster glide.

Disc golf keeps you on your toes. I've had a disc stolen and another run over within the last couple days. I've also shot some of the best rounds of my life. The disc that I lost was my GStar Sidewinder that I picked up last year and really started working with last fall when I lost my Star Sidewinder. It served as my main driver since then. I have another, same color and weight and it seems to fly identically, minus the extra glide I'd unlocked over time.

I'm really enjoying the Glow Wizards and I think it's time to get a new set of Soft Wizards in the rotation as well. I think I can easily handle throwing in a new Star Sidewinder in addition to the GStar. I can't harness the Destroyer very well. Now that I have the Valk, between it and the Firebirds, the stable end of the spectrum is pretty well covered. I'm thinking about trying to go back down to speed 9 or less and seeing if I feel like I'm missing any shots.

I hit an ace today, sidearm with the Sexton Firebird. I’ve previously aced the same hole backhand with a Buzzz for my first ace.

I got another ace yesterday! This one was with one of the Glow Wizards. Two aces in three days!

I also bought a Champ Sidewinder. It just came in a new batch of innova stuff at my local store. I’ve had bad luck with Champs before, but this one feels and flies like a Sidewinder.

175 '18 Sexton Firebird- OH/FH, seasoning
175 '15 Sexton Firebird- FH, beat
167 12x Champ Firebird- BH, beat
172 5x JK Champ Valkyrie- stable compliment to the sidewinder, lots of glide
167 Champ Sidewinder- most stable sidewinder, new
168 GStar Sidewinder- main BH driver, hyzer flips, woods, distance, new
167 PFN Star Sidewinder- less stable, anhyzers, beat

176 2x Roc3- more stable, beat
176 12x KC Pro Roc- stable, beat

175 Glow Wizard (2)- drives and approaches, seasoning
172 Soft Wizard- less stable, beat
175 Organic Wizard (2)- putters

I cut the TeeBird and Destroyer. The Champion Sidewinder has been great, it's really nice to have one in a more stable plastic.

First of all, nice. Second of all, can you comment on the durability and life cycle of superglow Gateway putters vs say, soft suregrip? TY


Also have you considered trying a CD2 as a stable complement to your valks? Same bottom wing with the anhyzer top - like adding 0.5 molds to the bag.
