Default Molds you tried this year that made the bag, and those that didn't.

Well, it's the end of the season; what molds did you try for the first time this season that made the bag and which didn't?

Made;
Rhyno
Truth
Stag
Patriot
Tsunami

Didn't;
Inertia- little too squirrely
Tesla - Rim too shallow for me
FD2 - Prefer the Banshee
Bard - Not as stable as the numbers suggest
Trident - Apparently I got one of the duds
Hellfire - Fun to throw, just never found a use for it

Still on the fence with;
Whale
P1X
Bandit

So, what were your gems and duds?

....
So, what were your gems and duds?
These are the ones that made the strongest impression upon me, good or bad:

The Gems:
Colt (proto-DX and Star, especially Star)
Star TL (Champs, also, but Star is best for me)
Classic Blend Judge
Champion (Pink) Panther

The Good:
C-Line FD
Gold Line River
Gold Line Fury
Wave (just gotta get weight and PLH right)
M5
Roc3
Krait

------------------

Okay, but on the sidelines:
Mako3
Axis
Blizzard Dominator

The Fails:
Atlas
Orbital
SS Wizard (still practice with it, though)
Freedom

Most of my purchases were backups this year. Only new molds were Wrath, Insanity, Pure, Zone. Pretty sure that's it.

Wrath is in for sure, kicked out the Volt, giving more separation between its spot and my Craves. Insanity so far is keeping its spot over the Inertia, but I'm considering a lighter weight Inertia that I might like better.

I love the Pure. I don't know that I need the Pure. It's in the bag, but I also have a Proxy on the way that hopefully has less fade. Pure is a great 1 disc round. But when I have a full bag, I go for my Envies or Omegas before I grab it on most shots.

Zone is also in the bag for now, but it's not as stable as I had hoped. With my fresh, max weight Envy, I don't use it often and would probably prefer a beefier midrange instead. This and the understable fairway are the only 2 spots in my bag that I'm not completely settled on.

Every disc that didn't have an H/LSS, when added together of +2 or higher left the bag this year in the name of improving the flex & flick. I just can't seem to resist a disc in the bag that's tried and true in order to improve my overall game so I have to leave them at home. Come Jan 1st, I'm tossing some my old favorites back in like the TL and Katana.

The Teebird3 is now my go-to driver.

I'm on the fence with the Buzzz OS - still looking for that over-stable mid.

The Thunderbird didn't make the cut. I've heard many good things about it, but I feel like I can cover most shots with Teebirds, Firebirds, and Destroyers...no need for another driver in the bag.

Rocs made the bag. Voodoos made the bag. Star Starfires in (kicked out Thunderbirds).

Wanted to like the Roadrunner, but just didn't click with it. Kaxe, no go. MRV, still a possibility, but probably not going to make it.

I think that's it.

Wasp for overstable roc3
Drone for, well Drone stuff
Rival for cheap PIAS disc to throw over water that I fell in love with flight and plastic
Gstar Firebird for out of the box seasoned(but still reliable) Firebird flight

Still not sure, but leaning toward making the bag are Opto Pure and Champ Mako3

I fell in love with the Colt and the Thief this year. The colt knocked out my beat in Buzzzes and the Thief knocked out my Eagles.
