disc down for injury bag

putters:
3x KC pro
1x Classic aviar
1x DX rhyno

Mids:
4x roc (3 kc, 1 dx)
1x q sent

fairways:
2x leopard (1 echo, 1 champ)
1x C-FD
3x Teebird (11x, Star, Brinster)
2x star Road runner
2x firebird ('18 sexton, FAF)
1x Champ thunderbird

really only missed my wraith/scorpious on two holes, but was still able to make par. I really enjoyed just playing the glide of the discs that I brought instead of trying to throw them so hard. Rocs, Leos, and Roadrunners really go a long way when you back off them a little, as counter-intuitive as that may seem. might bring this setup more even when I heal up.

Simple bag:

I am able to throw almost full power but didn't want to haul a full (heavy) pack so i left some backups or duplicates home and had one of my best rounds at my home course (rosedale)

Putters:
classic aviar (putt only)
SS omega
2x kc aviar
dx rhyno

Mids:
2x roc (1dx, 1KC)
2x sentinel (1 millenium, 1 quantum)

Fairways:
2x champ teebird (11x, brinster)
star RR (barsby)
champ thunderbird (172)
2x firebird (colorglow, FAF)

Drivers:
star wraith
sirius scorpius
star xcal

Some additional thoughts, I liked having less options even between the same mold, there was no debate of which thunderbird etc... also speaking of the thunderbird, can't believe it took me so long to get one in my bag. Such a good disc, it compliments my teebirds well too.

Also I have for the moment switched from kc pro to classic aviars for my putting. They glide better and come out smooth, seem to just make more putts. Throw what works right?

Cold, wet day bag from this weekend. I forget how much cold air just wants to knock down your discs, and can we just say that there is nothing worse than slick teepads? It's surprising how conditions can take holes that are usually an easy roc shot, and turn them into something that needs a driver.

This bag also reflects my other weekend activity; going through all of my discs and paring down to a reasonable amount of backups for molds that I actually throw. Got rid of 20 discs, progress right?

Putters:
2x classic aviar - putting
3x KC Pro aviar - throwing

Mids:
3x roc ( 2 KC, 1 Dx)
1x q sentinel (glow brinster)

Fairway:
4x teebirds ( 11x, star, swirl star, brinster)
1x RR (star)
1x Thunderbird (champ)
2x Firebird (color glow, FAF)

Driver:
1x wraith (bottom stamp star)
2x destroyer (philo, bottom stamp)
1x scorpius ( 1.8 bottom stamp sirius)
2x xcal (echo, star)

took the rhyno out, it was great for short forehand flicks, but I throw my putters a ton, so having that be a one shot disc wasn't worth the real estate. In my drivers the destroyers actually sandwich my scorp in terms of stability, the philo being less, and the bottom stamp being more.

Do you use different distance driver molds for forehand vs backhand?

Personally, I’ve never carried more than 3 distance drivers. One hyzer flippy, one straight and one overstable.

I like your 4 mid setup. I keep it simple in that range as well. Do you use your mids for fairway shots and drives? I typically only use mids from the tee and when I have a “midrange” shot from the fairway, I’m ripping a putter.

Well my forehand is kinda garbage, but I prefer the xcal for forehands, seems to get right farther for me. In this setup I have a lot more distance drivers than normal, I usually carry four. Very similar to your setup plus a super overstable for those Kansas City winds.

I try and throw the slowest disc that will get me to the basket, seems to give the best control. My putters I throw to 275' pretty accurately, can push them to 300, but for that 275~325 range i prefer my rocs. They fly like faster putters for me.

Have you considered one of those fashionable, OS putter/mid tweener discs? You mention that your FH is garbage but there are a lot of uses for a short OS disc that skips less than a Firebird.

They come in and out of my bag, i've tried harp, gator, zone and rhyno. They just didn't get used enough. Maybe one day they will come back, but kc pros take forehands better than one would expect. What do you use for that slot?

I use a Zone presently, as I consider it sort of the de-facto option for that slow OS disc. Sometimes though I would like to bag a mortar again and pair it with something slower than the zone, like the rhyno or aviarX3.

Really though, if you're comfortable FHing KC Aviars, no reason to bag something else. Half the reason most people bag one of these little OS tweener discs is for comfort on FH anyway.

Bit of an overhaul on the bag, I took a look at what was actually getting thrown in my bag, and what I click with. It was pretty eye opening, don't know if if just over analyzing or what, but trying to prepare for every situation left my bag light on the shots that I like and can execute the best. Too many overstable discs that were only getting thrown once or twice, along with me trying to shoehorn certain molds into my bag. Had to admit/recognize I like straight/neutral discs with a little turn and glide that are easy to throw and can be shaped. So it might not look too different but it feels very different.

Putters:
1x SS omega (putt)
1x classic aviar (putt)
3x KC pro aviar (throw)

mids:
2x comet (esp, glow)
2x MD4 (c-line)

Fairway:
2x fd (c-line)
2x brinster teebird
2x cd2 (c-line)
2x firebird (sexton, FAF)

Distance:
2x Wraith (star)
2x Scorpius (sirius)
1x xcal (echo)


Thoughts:
My mids went through a complete overhaul. The roc's were one of those discs that I liked, but never really loved. The comet is a perfectly beat roc in premium plastic which gives it a much more reliable lifespan. The md4 might be my favorite new disc in a long time. I can shape just about any line with it backhand and is a really good touch forehand disc. The sentinels that the MD4 replaced were almost too much for most shots and the roc's weren't enough. The comet/MD4 are a much better compliment in my mind.

I busted out my fds and cd2's again, these things are lasers. Love the teebirds still but the fade at the end is a little much, my favorite shot is straight with little to no fade, these fit the bill. The other change was admitting to myself that scorps are a tiny bit too much for me, great for wind or long shots that need fade, but the wraith just goes farther with way less effort. I know exactly what they do and am glad I decided to stop being a dingus.
