I hope that is old plastic and Discraft is still not making clear discs, that fad I hope died off from most brands. Clear is a dumb choice for discs, as bad as using a tie-dye of some kind for the discs or the swirly from some brands plastic in bad colors that blend with the environment.

Yes, i think Nate said that he got a text from Uli that Paul had a clear Raptor that Uli gave him.

But is the Raptor really more OS than the Anax? mine are not

He throw a clear Vulture at Worlds. . Pauls OS fairway spot is quite crowded

Maybe Paul was having issues trusting the Anax on certain shots. I bag both a Raptor and an Anax, due to the differences in feel and flight. My FR Z Raptor is significantly more OS than my Anax and the Anax is quite a bit longer too. I trust my Raptor more on FHs than I do my Anax, but the Anax is easier to throw BH.

It's so similar to an FD3 it's odd that he isn't bagging it. I've got two (Glo Z & Z) & neither are Firebird beef but still OS. Feels a lot like a Firebird or FD3 too. Really comfortable & familiar design.

I think of mine like an OS compliment to my Thunderbirds. The Raptor is a bit more OS but more importantly holds a lower line & won't lift up like a Thunderbird.

So then if you wanted to look at it in analogous terms from his old bag, the Raptor would be the firebird/fd3/monster slot he was always toying with, the Anax would be a thunderbird and I assume the vulture is Teebird3 ish

As for Paul and going between the Vulture/Anax/Raptor it could depend entirely on the course and his pre tournament rounds deciding what discs he's going to tee off with and leaving others out of the bag so there's no decision making on the teepad.

Ben Hogan won a US Open without a 7iron in the bag one year, said there wasn't a 7iron shot on the course. I'd say Hogan and McBeth are pretty close in course management.

I looked at the bottom online, it is just nylon Webbing but the rest looks to be the same quality as the modern Discraft Tournament bag with a little bit more storage. The Bottle holder on the Left side is not as nice as on the Traditional Tournament bag but you can make that small pocket a second small bottle holder. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0763SVJ95...ing=UTF8&psc=1 Also it seems that Discraft is getting more of these bags in.
