It's just you. I've gotten some pretty good discs, including one I'd really been wanting for weeks.

Yeah, I think there's just a lot of randomness. I did finally get the Wind/Acc Explorer, but that was right before the update, when a lot of top players started dropping it. Now I see a lot (from those URDIZZLE videos, thanks etdefender!) are using others like the River (Acc/Glide or Acc/Wind?) instead, so I guess I'll have to look for one of those.

As a side note, I also noticed he had a Wind/Glide Ballista in the bag for at least a couple rounds. I had been wondering if it exists, and it obviously does. I'll be on the lookout.

Before the update, there was a “universal” six discs that everyone carried in their MP/Tour bag, with only variations in the Musket (Glide v. Wind) and Pure (Glide v. Sticky)

After the update, there’s many varieties of bags run by the HOFers - definitely more interesting now!!

I'm basically running the same bag and have struggled to use it. I'm finally getting back to hitting >95% from inside 60' with the acc/sticky Pure. It requires more touch but I still prefer it to using the Fuse. But to be fair, I haven't tried real hard to adjust.

Even the Acc/Wind Explorer is still very useful. I guess it does mess up some ace runs with the newfound end fade, but sometimes that's also nice.

Thanks. I think that's me, I hit an ace on Windswept Fields hole 9 a few hours ago.

Haha, been awhile since I played it.. Fired it up and the updates are nice, lefty mode is messing me up though haha. I thought I'd like it but I keep forgetting it fades the other way. I like what they did with the putting too.. Glad I had the explorer already.

I loved the Fuse until either .912, or the update before, when it actually flew nice and straight. Now it seems like I need to put a ton of hyzer angle on it in order for it to fly straight.

On the other hand, I don't get the Compass love. I threw that in there after seeing a few people like it, and I just don't see it so far.

I'm currently bagging:

Glide/Acc Pure
Glide/Acc Fuse
Wind/Acc River
Light/Wind Recoil
Light/Skip Ballista
Light/Glide Ballista

I've been throwing the River for weeks now. It was to me what everyone told me the Explorer would be. I never got the Explorer but almost didn't care.

I finally got a wind/glide Recoil, threw it for two rounds, and put the light/wind back in. It was my first Recoil and I just know it so well that I don't see the point in changing.

Same with the glide Fuse. I dumped it for a wind/acc for a long time, but it never felt as right to me as the wind/glide does.

And that light/skip Ballista has been a game changer for me in 912. I added it just a few days ago when someone issued the challenge to eagle every hole on Oak Hill. I quickly gave up on that challenge, but in the process I tried out some other drivers and that one made a massive difference in my scores on a lot of the long holes. It would probably bump the light/glide one completely if it wasn't for the albatross and the island hopper holes.
