I spent the weekend in the Duluth area and got to play Mont du Lac! I got a nice a little snapshot of my game. I lost my GStar Sidewinder on the first throw so I had to improvise a bit, but I was able to find it again after the round was over. I brought the Destroyer on a hunch and I ended up using it extensively. I had mixed results on my driving, but my putting was in great form all weekend. I brought a TeeBird and rarely used it. I bought a new Soft Wizard and started working it in. I threw almost exclusively BH all weekend. For whatever reason, I just didn't find too many opportunities to use my FH.

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.
I can mainly compare against Softs, the other plastic I throw. I've had two different experiences with Glow Wizards for any length of time. Originally, I bought a pair of two Glows that had the big superglow stamp. They were about SS in stiffness I'd say. Very grippy. Always more OS than my Softs at that time. The one that I held on to for the longest was a great thrower. It could take more power and be slightly more reliable than a a Soft, especially on relatively open shots. Both were lost, durability wasn't an issue. My second experience is with my current pair of Glows. Stiffer than stock Stars and PWP, kinda like the stiff runs of Fossil, but less stiff than G9i. These two are still pretty fresh so I can't comment on their lifespan, but they are leagues from my beat Soft right now. I've got some early damage, but nothing major or out of the ordinary for a Wizard. I think the durability is really good.

I don't think I've heard of a CD2 until now. I'll have to check one out if I get a chance.

Won my first tournament today. It was pretty dramatic with a playoff that went to five holes. So much fun. It was at a temp course that was predominantly woods. I played with the bag listed above minus the Champ TeeBird. There is plenty of overlap between the champ sidewinder and the valk and I didn’t throw the Sidewinder at all.

I played in a B-Tier over the weekend and got fourth (intermediate). I chose a Glo Z Buzzz as part of the players pack and put it into the bag. Honestly, I haven't been throwing midrange that much the last couple years. Lately, I'd been wanting a midrange that I could give a bit more power to that would still be workable. The Buzzz was like an old friend, it gave me confidence in my midrange again and I threw it a bunch with good results. I plan to use it as my main midrange and to use the Rocs for utility. I lost my main GStar Sidewinder during preround warmups and had to play without it until I came back around to that hole. Deja vu, although this time I was prepared with a backup. I rarely use my beat Soft Wizard or my beat Star Sidewinder anymore, I like their newer replacements too much.

I hit an ace with a Soft Wizard this morning on my first throw of the day.

Congrats on the Ace! What type of bag do you carry your discs in? Seems like your adding and subtracting all the time.

I played league Tuesday night and added the Starlite Wraith back in on a hunch. I used it several times for max distance with pretty good success. I drove a 388 ft hole, with some downhill but the Sidewinder had been 30 ft shorter.

I played a two disc challenge on Saturday, I chose an Opto River and a BT Hard Harp. I didn't play extremely well, but both of the discs were nice. The River flew similar to the Champ Sidewinder I just took out of my bag, it is just slightly more OS than my Valk. The Harp was incredible. Sometimes I forgot that I wasn't throwing a Wizard and then it flew just like a Wizard anyway. I really liked having the option to Sidearm a putter as well. I put the Harp in my main bag.

After the event, someone was selling discs that they had found in the river and I was able to get one of my original Fossil Wizards back! It was lost this spring and is in fantastic shape still.

Sunday, I played an unsanctioned tournament.

167 4x Star Destroyer- wind, OS utility, FH
154 Starlite Wraith- max D in open on calm days

175 '18 Sexton Firebird- more OS, FH/utility
175 '15 Sexton Firebird- FH
167 12x Champ Firebird- BH
172 5x Champ Valkyrie- stable compliment to Sidewinder
168 GStar Sidewinder (2)- main driver

177 Glo Z Buzzz
176 2x Champ Roc3
176 12x KC Pro Roc

175 Glow Wizard (2)- more OS
175 Fossil Wizard- more OS
175 Soft Wizard- main approach and drive
172 Soft Wizard- more US
175 Organic Wizard (2)- main putters

I threw the Harp into the Big Sioux river and then lost my main driver again, the GStar Sidewinder, in a thicket of stinging nettles several holes later. I brought a backup and was able to finish the tournament with my bag still intact for the most part. I returned after the tournament with long sock and long sleeves and found my disc after about an hour of looking. Some days you are just happy to take your frisbees home.

I took the PFN Star Sidewinder out, maybe someday I'll learn to work with it (I could try rollers), but since it came out of the swamp it just bails immediately right. My midrange didn't get used much. I only used the KC Pro Roc in fact. The Buzzz needs some beats.

I think a Harp would fit in pretty well in your bag...I've debated adding on a time or two
