Haven't been out yet.

I'm hoping to bag a new course Saturday when I'm in St. Louis, but I'm not taking the new Comet on the road to someplace I've never been before. Sunday I have an event; the college disc golf club coordinates with the mining department and set up a course that plays around and in the experimental mine. Last year nine of the holes were in the mine, and a bunch of the holes outside were in the quarry. The new Comet will NOT be participating in that.

Wizard I got at the event last year; it was new when the event started.



I might not get to throw the Comet until next week.

I mean that would be the fastest way to season a Comet...have it get chewed up in a mine and a quarry...sounds like a fun event nonetheless.

Three week later I finally bagged that course. Still haven't thrown the Comet, though.

Kinda goofing with putters/approach discs mostly. I stuck a really old grid stamped big bead Aviar in the bag along with an Omega AP big bead and missed all my putts for a month but they have been OKish recently. The Sol is a fun disc to throw so I think I'm keeping it. The combination is working for upshots and approaches at least. I might have to go back to the Scale crutch at some point but right now I'm just messing around.

I've had a Champ Roc around for a bit but I'm finally working that in. I'll get around to working with the Comet someday.

Drivers are simple; either hyzer flip a Valk or flex a Firebird. That's all I've got.

Do you need the control drivers slot? Can you just power down a FB or Valk?

Do you actually carry all of those? That seems exhausting.

*edit* Even with the cart that seems exhausting.

That's the bag set-up, the cart can carry waaayyy more stuff.

Way back in the day there wasn't really a decent bag on the market. My bag was a Wall City Cube, and it had no frame. How you kept it in shape was to cram it as full as you could and let the discs keep it from flopping over. I just got used to that. Even now I cram as many discs in a bag as I can figure out a place to cram them. A bag with open space is not something my OCD can handle.

Fun Fact: I replaced the Wall City bag with a large Lighting bag. The Lightning bag had big zipper compartments on either side to store stuff, but I didn't need to store anything in my golf bag. It was space, though. I crammed the zipper compartments full of discs. They were zipped up and out of view and at some point forgot all about them. When I finally replaced that bag a decade later and cleaned it out I found these unthrown backup Aviars, Rocs and Cyclones I had just shoved in there that I forgot I even owned.

That's the rub, isn't it? Sometimes I click with the JLS/EXP and the drivers are along for the ride. Recently I've just been throwing Valk/Firebird and the fairways are along for the ride.

The unLace is around for a very specific shot and mostly is along for the ride.

I generally throw one or two of the mids and the rest are along for the ride.

The Zephyr is just for show to make people wonder; I don't think I've thrown it at all in the last two years.

The Condor again is for a very specific shot and mostly is along for the ride, although my buddies enjoy that shot enough the they have named the Condor "Bertha" and yell "HERE COMES BIG BERTHA!" when they see me about to uncork the thumb roller.

The Signal I throw on days when I can't throw anything else. Some days the arm is just dead and nothing works. If anything else is working, I'm not throwing it.

The last round I played I threw the Omega AP, the Z Sol, the Champ Roc, the DX Valk and the DX Firebird. I putted with the DX Aviar. Everything else stayed in the bag the entire round. That's fairly typical, although the actual discs that get thrown will change. Playing 18 and only having five or six discs actually leave my bag is pretty common.

tl;dr: I could get by with a lot fewer discs. I just don't want to.

That's fair...I threw a Dx Valk in the bag recently and love it.
