Around here the courses are so open that you could get by with an overstable driver (works for both BH and FH at all sorts of distances) and a Putter that throws well too.

For me it's a D1 and a Wizard.

not sure why it's surprising that i picked up the disc known as the best driving putter in the game and took it to the tee before i took it to the green.

i'll most definitely putt with the disc i can put in the basket most often. right now, that's a challenger.

IDK. I guess it's suprising because when I found the Wizard it was over (PW Wiz that is) best driving putter? Sure. Best putting putter? Sure. Best approach disc? In a lot of scenarios. The wizard IMO is pretty aptly named, it works magic.challys are good also. It's all about hand feel, comfort, comfidence on the green man, if the chally gives ya that, good for you.

well, it's just a matter of time. at some point the wiz stack will be bigger than the chally stack and once i have enough practice hours on the green with the wiz to feel confident...

i do really love the black discraft pro d plastic though. and it will take some time to find a big stack of wizards that all feel the same. i like the firm eraser plastic so far.

Email gateway and tell them you’re looking for a firm black organic wizard. Best feel for putting I’ve come across.

Absolute minimalist without going 3 disc?

Pro wraith
Star TB3
Star Leo
Star rancho roc
Comet X
Serpent

I feel like you could come up with a completely different minimalist bag every day for a month.

I tried eraser and fell in love. Firm plastic and great feel in all conditions.

I've been looking for the perfect Straight to OS mid that fits my needs for BH and FH. Right now, I use the Zone, and I'm very happy with it. However, I would love a bit more distance so I can drop my Firebird when trying to play a 4 disc round. I just purchased a verdict, so I'm hoping that will fit the bill. Basically I am looking for a beadless mid that is a shorter Teebird instead of a shorter firebird. Then I could go:

Envy, Verdict, Teebird, D2

Without making me read through the entire thread, has anyone looked at garublador's
How to Build a Bag?

Personally, I'm a little (maybe a lot) frustrated with my inability to shape shots, so I'll be working through his suggestions.

Yeap.... When I started over 5 years ago I followed his advice and it changed my game and outlook.

I bagged a Star Eagle-X, DX Gazelle, KC Roc and a Yeti Aviar for a Year. Quite the eye opener!

My bag is still pretty minimalist, I just don't have the need for the specific disc for every different shot mentality.
