Actually looking for some advice:

3 *DS Destroyers (159 BEEFY, 168g still OS, 171g beat toflippy)

1 Sexton FB
1 Patent # SPD, 171g (BEEFY freshness)
2 1.1 QOLFs, both 175g (1 fresh and 1 seasoned -- only need the seasoned one but I am breaking the freshie in)
1 1.9 SOLS, 175g (Sky annys, and flip to flat for tunnels with late turn)

1 Champ color glow Teebird, 175g (Pretty darned OS)
1 1.2 QJLS, 174g (stable, flip to late fade)
1 1.1 CE QJLS, 172g (flippier than 1.2s, turnovers and flip to late turn)

1 San Marino Q-Sentinel, 176g (Beefier and longer than a Roc)
1 2004 USDGC Champion Rancho Roc, 178g (Solidly OS Roc)
1 2008 Champion San Marino Roc, 176g (Straight, workable Roc)
1 Ti Comet, 177+g (Comet!)

1 Recon Tank, 175g (Beefy enough, but workable for drives and longer ups)
1 PFN Star Aviar P&A, 172g (Straight or turnover drives and longer ups)
2 Wizards, 175g (All putting and shorter ups)

1 LE Glo Z Zone goes in too, if it is windy.

I really lean on my control drivers, and the *DSs really only come out when distance is more important than good control -- basically, in the rare instance where those 25 feet are going to give me a different look or a makeable birdie try. If I'm just going to be throwing a slightly longer upshot either way, I stick with a control driver. Fairways for standstills or shorter technical drives.
And I am perfectly happy with my mids and putters.

So what would you drop?
I'd like to carry fewer this spring with more room for icy beverages. I often think I could drop the OLS and Teebird, but then I go out and use each one virtually every round. I know 19 ain't crazy, but still...

Could you go from Destroyer to Firebird-Eagle-teebird? Or maybe better yet for flexing wooded lines, firebird-eagle-leopard (or fd).

I'd assume you've tried this (and maybe that's what the ojlsqlf 1.1.2 Jazz is all about, I don't know)

I've also found that from playing Trojan, McCormick, Hornings and Buxton, and pier, Milo and Blue Lake is that the bag can definitely vary from course to course.

It's the archer AND the arrow from my experience here.

No doubt. More often than anything else, I'll just leave my Destroyers in the car at many courses, and stick a Zone in for tricky woodsy flex shots. I can think of maybe two tees on all 54 holes at Hornings where I'd throw a Destroyer. 2, maybe 3 at Pier. None at McCormick. Maybe one at Buxton. But TONS of Destroyers at Milo and Blue Lake....

Anyway, not dropping speed 9/10 control drivers as a class. They do more work than anything except my putters.

PS. Been too long. We need to get a round in soon buddy.

So I'm switching out to my Spider Monkey for the next couple weeks, at least, while I break in some new plastic and just for a little change of pace:

167 *DS (Fresh, fairly OS)

175 Glow Champ FB (Flat and beefy)
171 Pat #SPD (Brand new freshy OS)
174 1.1 QOLF (Brand new, fights out for flex lines or flip to solid fade)
175 1.1 QOLF (Well seasoned, for holding the turnover or long hyzerflips that finish straight)

174 1.2 QJLS (Pretty fresh and neutral, will handle power, flip to late fade)
170 1.1 CE JLS (Seasoned for turnovers, flip to late turn)

177 San Marino Q-Sentinel (Beefy long mid/short fairway)
176 Big Bird Champ San Marino Roc (Fresh, general OS mid duties)
177 Ti Comet (Fresh, neutral and anhyzers)

175 Recon Tank (OS driving/upshot putter)
175 Champion Aviar P&A (Neutral driving/upshot putter)
175 OG S Wizard (For Stickin' Putts)

Nice, love that the Leopard is getting some action. So much great control to be had with the Leo's.

Our park course is supposed to change back to the Summer layout any day now. As soon as my ankle feels solid, I'll be out testing those Comets. Even after just a few field throws with the White ESP, I'm looking forward to tossin' them around.
