Buzzz or Truth. I've had both in the bag before, but neither stuck. The Buzzz and Truth are a little flaky, and will turn too much on hard rips.

I bag a champion Roc3 instead, and it performs so much better.

I also used to bag a champion Teebird, and pulled it out in favor of a gold line Explorer.

I do bag a Firebird and star Destroyer. Those are both super common.

Agreed. I don't pull my Firebird out a ton, but I love having it there. On days when the wind gets going a little I'll pull out the Firebird instead of the Roc3. Way easier to deal with. The Firebird doesn't get pushed around in wind like a mid does.

Destroyers and FD's come to mind real quick for me. Destroyers are just useless for my weak arm, so I could add Nukes, Zeuses, Bosses and the like.

I ordered a couple FD's five or so years ago but only ended up throwing one a couple times before giving them to a couple of my coworkers who'd never played before. Seemed like a solid disc for a couple newbs. Never tried one since. Seemed like a pretty nice disc the couple times I tossed it. Just never really bagged one.

Basically all mids. I have some in the bag for testing, but only throw the Comet in competitive rounds. Sometimes. Maybe once or twice. If it's too far for my putter I just go fairway driver.

no distance drivers. I have a crush on a lot of fairways and mids. as the old jazz saying goes "it ain't the meat, it's the motion".

Product contrarian here.

I don't bag any Discraft McBeth stamped discs, and I won't bag the next bandwagon stuff to come along either.

The amount a product is advertised and hyped seems to have an inverse effect on me, causing me to become less likely to purchase the product.

I find it interesting that the better I get rating-wise, the closer my bag to the generic bag. Current bagged molds: XCaliber, Destroyer, Firebird, Thunderbird, Sidewinder, FD, MD4, Zone, Invader, Link. Seems like every Innova pro's bag, but with the ability to throw a few other manufacturers in there.

The only slots I don't currently have filled are the neutral mid and the Teebird/Thunderbird/PD control driver.

I used to bag an Evidence as a straight mid, but found that my beat Emac Truth (which now flies like a -2 turn, 2 fade disc) was overlapping but obviously with a lot more lateral wriggle. I can also power up an Envy if I need to.

I bagged Getaways for years as my Thundy/PD, and still really love the mold. But this offseason I've tried slimming down molds a bit, and have been going straight from a beat Biofuzion Felon to a fresh Stag. Or in Innova terms, that's kind of like going straight from a worked in Sexton Firebird to a C-line FD. I still haven't decided whether this is a permanent change or not.

Core of my bag is pretty mainstream (Warlock(aviar clone)/Roc/Leopard/Teebird/Firebird) so I'll go with Destroyer. I threw Wraiths as my distance driver for a while, dabbled with other DD's here and there (including the Destroyer) but would always come back to the Wraith. Summer 2018 bought some Shrykes and a Force on a whim and have not looked back. though with pro's like GG, JC (RIP), and Big Jerm throwing them I may have to dabble again...
