The Quake on baseline plastic is basically a Roc. It’s definitely possible to use something like a Firebird instead of an overstable putter, I’ve done it, but I think having that extra mold is going to be way more consistent for most people. I think that’s especially true if you’re approaching on greens that are hard-packed and skip friendly. I don’t think the Zone even existed when Blake made that list.

I got to over 500 courses played by doing a lot of traveling. And when traveling, sometimes I am forced to pack very lightly. I need to use a minimum amount of discs to cover the greatest amount of shots.



Super duper light travel bag for most any course I will encounter. I throw RHBH

1 slightly beat Star Mamba - I can make this disc hit any driver line. Great for wooded courses, super straight shots, roller shots, uphill shots and full range of turnover shots.

1 super stable Boss - Guaranteed to hyzer in all conditions after it goes a really long way. Useful for flex shots, high spike hyzers and skip shots. It will always come back!

1 Champion Leopard - For most fairway and long approach shots including hyzer, straight and anhyzer shots.

1 Star Foxbat - Super straight flyer that is a must have for heavily wooded and high altitude courses.

1 R-Pro Dart - Main Putter that is also my main upshot disc for straight and turning approaches.

1 R-Pro Pig - This is my windy putter that doubles as my overstable midrange.



If I am going to play on big wide open courses, I will add a Champion Katana and/or a seasoned R-Pro Boss for max distance.

If I am going to be playing at altitude, I add a super, duper extra flippy Star Mamba that is a roller at sea level but amazing in the mountains.

If I will be playing on a bolf course, I will bring a Super Stable Glow Leopard for longer hyzer/spike approaches (and that flippy roller Star Mamba).

If I will be in a tournament, I will likely have all of the above plus a fresh Star Mamba. I always carry a back up R-Pro Dart putter in the bag during tournaments.

Yup. My discs would be slightly different, but one can cover a ton of shots with two putters, neutral mid, neutral fairway, and two distance drivers.

And traveling light is nice, even at the local course.

Found this pretty interesting. Infinite did a break down of the disc selection from Ricky and Paul at the Las Vegas open a couple years ago.

Feel like Rick leans on his pig way more now than he did when he first made the switch to Innova

I have a zuca cart and typically carry 20+ discs from 12+ molds. Lately I've been playing my local course from the short tees with only a wizard (I bring two in case I lose one). I consistently score between even and +3 in the wizard-only rounds. When I play with my full bag my score ranges from about -3 to +6. So super-minimalism with only one disc is netting me about the same average score as my full cart and better consistency. I still drag my cart around and chuck all those discs at other courses though!

I am just discovering his ban. What happened, and is it permanent?

Yes, it's permanent.
He was a horrible $hitgoblin and wore out his welcome.
It's a better website without him.
