Default Another random bag update

Controlled Distance:
175 S-DD - Not long but PREDICTABLE straight to fade
174 C-PD - go-to FH and stable flights
172 Z HEAT - BH Line shaper, FH straight
173 Big Z HEAT - BH/FH turnovers

Fairway Drivers:
169 CH. EX - beefy, throw-away
168 Star EX - BH/FH line shaper
174 TP SEER - flippy as *$%#, rollers, FH turnovers/rollers
175 CH. EXP-X - OS, FH rollers, OH, etc.

Mid-ranges:
173 ESP NEBULA - fresh, straight to fade
174 ESP NEBULA - Straighter than any Buzzz could dream of being
176 OPTO FUSE - Essential US woods threader

P&A:
155 PLASMA ION - Spin putter
166 DX POLECAT - magical floaty stuff
175 N ENVY - Hard throwing putter, windy putts
I've added distance so the bag is getting driver heavy. I love the Ballista for all-out rips but would love to see if the Ballista Pro is as stable as advertised and could knock out the S-DD. DD, Ballista and King get most of my distance throws. The Gladiator (also rotate a Cutlass or Giant into this slot) just comes out for serious wind or needed skips. The TP Giant actually has a lot of turn but still fights back. Not useful until you run into that question mark shaped fairway. The PD and Heats are my go-to's for sidearm and a lot of line-shaping, stealing lots of shots from my FW drivers these days. I actually don't throw my Eagles much b/c most holes suggest mids for keeping on the fairway or are open enough to rip for distance. They come out on properly wooded, long courses. Seer and EXP-X are understable/overstable bookends.

My go-to Nebula has gotten so beaten up it hardly fades so I put in a fresh Nebula for better LSS. Envy is taking the Breaker spot of a slow, no turn putter I can blast on short wooded holes. Biggest change? A 155g Ion I'm using to learn how to spin putt. It's actually working out really well.

I didn't think my bag had changed a lot in 2 years but apparently it has.

Distance Drivers:
Opto Ballista Pro - OS enough to flex. BH
Neutron Excite - Super straight, easy bomber disc. BH
Opto Ballista - US tailwind bomber. BH

Control Drivers:
500 FX-2 - Really HSS and good for "Nikko lines." Not used much. BH/FH
C-PD - Very beat but still dependable straight-fade driver, mostly FH. 3 aces.
Opto-X Glimmer Saint - Similar to the PD but slightly more turn, one of the straightest discs I've ever had, mostly BH. 1 ace.
VIP Stag - Turnovers, BH and FH.

Fairway Drivers:
Champ Eagle-X - Straight-to-fade driver. BH/FH
Star Eagle-X - beat, turnovers, techie hyzer flips. BH/FH
TP Seer - rollers, tomahawks, crazy anhyzers. BH/FH
Quantum CG Draco - FH rollers, flex FH, spike hyzers, thumbers, wind. BH/FH

Midranges:
Neutron Runway - OS mid. Not used much, similar to FX-2. BH
ESP Malta - Moderately OS mid. Straight to fade, decent in wind. BH
Z Nebula - workhorse stable mid. Just holding the spot for when it's warm enough to bag the ESP Nebula again. BH/FH
Proline Rift - Stable-understable mid, also placemark for the ESP Nebula. BH/FH
Opto Fuse - Understable wonder mid. BH

Putters:
Keystone - Putting putter. Zero medium for cold days, retro for warm.
Opto-X glimmer Keystone - Throwing Keystone. Very neutral, good straight flying putter. BH mostly.
Cosmic Neutron Envy - Straight to fade throwing putter. Frequently used FH/BH.
400 A2 - Zone ripoff. Does Zone stuff. BH/FH.

So yeah that's 21 discs, not including the Polecat that jumps in depending on the course. This is way more discs than I like honestly but my FH makes it tricky to drop some because my FH speed isn't quite as good as my BH speed. So the control drivers are also by FH distance drivers. I'm trying to work on FHing the distance drivers but the wider rims are hard to get used to. I might actually drop the Eagles because I have enough accuracy with the PD, Saint, and Stag that they overlap a lot. The FX-2 and Runway can get dropped if it ever stops being abnormally windy here. I'm just clicking with a lot discs right now.

If anybody sees any other way to reduce overlap, let me know.

I haven’t played many rounds with it yet, but I’m loving my Fuse. So easy to throw and amazing glide.
