Default Pimp My Bag! (disc selection)


I love this bag. It came from Ultimate Direction but is no longer on their list of available bags, sadly. It holds about 6-8 discs. I'm trying to decide what else to add to fill it out. What am I missing here? I don't carry spares in this bag, it's for casual play. I am a RHBH thrower.

Discraft Pro D Banger 169g Putter
Innova DX Cobra 174g Right doglegs drive/approach
Innova Star Kite 167g Tunnel shots/long putts
Innova DX Leopard 165g Primary Driver
Innova DX Spider 175g Left dogleg drive/approach

Thanks for your input!

For the curious, it does have an outer zip pouch, holds two drink bottles and has two more small zip pouches on the belt part left and right. I can carry everything I need in one bag that I never have to put down or pick up. You do have to draw behind you blind by feel, but if you know the edge of your discs it's no problem.

For anyone interested in the pack, the current version of it is called Ultimate Direction Naviti. I haven't tried this one, but it looks very similar to mine but nicer and newer. Prices on google range from $26-$50. This brand is well put together out of quality materials.

i would add either a roc or gator in place of your kite. possibly try a whippet instead of a spider. just thoughts. you might also want to try a buzzz(i put with mine 1/2 the time)

I think a buzzz or roc would be a worthy addition. Also If I may recommend adding a teebird as a stable fairway driver ... thats a disc you cant go wrong with.

I second the teebird advice, maybe the TL if you want something a bit less stable. I really like my skeeter, kind of blurs together the needs of your spider and kite.

Your definately missing a long distance driver, and since you have so many midrange discs you couls lose your least favorite. You might also want to upgrade you plastic from DX on your drivers (DX is good for rocs and putters). That's it.

I agree with Dave here. Seriously, the TL is my go to disc for just about any shot becuase I can get it to do just about anything I need. The Skeeter is also an amazing choice for a midrange, I have literally made peoples jaws drop with how stright this disc flies.

You may also want to pick up some Distance Drivers and the choice there will depend a lot on how much snap you get on the disc as well as what type of shots you feel most comfortable with, as in do you hyzer or anhyzer?

Yeah my snap/distance is pretty dreadful. A good drive for me is 250'. I do have two drivers I'm not carrying in that bag:

Innova Pro TeeBird-L 175g
Innova Pro Wraith 172g

and
Innova Champion Beast ???g
