Default Another Bag Building Challenge

I liked Finny's bag building challenge from earlier this month, and decided to try a similar one. The concept for this one is simple. But, if you are like me, you may find that you cannot seem to settle on a result that you agree with a week later.



Here is the challenge. Create a bag of discs that would best serve you. The requirements for this bag must follow the following set of rules:

1. You must choose a disc brand for each speed 1-14. You cannot leave any speed empty. Each brand you choose is based on the disc(s) of that speed that you want in your bag. So, for example, if you insist on bagging a Predator, then your speed 9 brand must be Discraft.

2. Each brand may only be used for one speed category. So, for example, if you choose Innova for speed 5, then you cannot use Innova again for speed 9. So, choose wisely.

3. When you enter your list of brands, please also, state the name(s) of the mold(s) from this brand that interest you at this speed.

4. Commentary about your choices is welcome, but not manditory.

5. For any commentary, be positive! If you are not feeling particularly enthusiastic about your choice at a particular speed, try to sell us on it anyway!




That's it. You will find that the resulting bag is rather large, but heck, this is just an exercise.

Feel free to utilize websites such as Marshall St disc golf and Infinite Discs to assist you in recalling brands and molds.


Here are my choices: (I chose to make my list in descending order)

14. Westside - World, Catapult, King, Destiny, Queen - Lots of strong choices here, in my view.
13. MVP - Energy, Nitro, Octane, Catalyst - Considered other brands instead, but, as Phil Liggett would say, the peloton would have a dim view of that.
12. Dynamic Discs - Enforcer, Trespass - very competitive speed category. I wonder if any will agree with my choice.
11. Millenium - Astra, AstraX, Aries - Just admitting you throw these proves you are cool.
10. Discmania - PD, TD, TD2 - The PD alone gives it a strong showing.
9. Innova - Firebird, Thunderbird, Valkyrie, Sidewinder - Look at this list. Nuff said.
8. Discraft - Undertaker, Mantis, XL, XS - I so wanted to use Discraft elsewhere also, but it's time to give some OOP discs some love.
7. Legacy - Rival, Patriot, (maybe Phenom?) - Just try to tell Legacy lovers not to include these.
6. Kastaplast - Kaxe, Kaxe Z - Pure awesomeness, and look, more awesomeness!
5. Prodigy - M1, M2, M3, M4, M5 - They've got it covered.
4. Latitude 64 - Compass, Fuse - super reliable. And, I think the Anchor goes here too.
3. Gateway - Wizard, Voodoo, Warlock, Magic - this is like a million different choices! And that's just the Wizard.
2. Axiom - Envy - had other strong contenders here also. Don't they wish they got the spot.
1. Aerobie - the Arrow - yes! for the win!


I am not claiming to be the final authority on the perfect list. My experience is limited. And, so, I am looking forward to your thoughts.

1: Aerobic (Arrow) What else is there?
2: Axiom (Envy and Proxy) Both feel amazing and the only thing more amazing is their flight into headwinds.
3: Gateway (Wizard, etc.) The Wizard is quite possibly the best putter ever!
4: Hyzerbomb (Mortar) OS cycleable Mid thank you!
5: RDG (Gila) Same as above
6: Kastaplast (Kaxe, Kaxe Z) Perfect for when you need more D than a Mid but still that kind of control.
7: Legacy (Rival, Patriot) All of your fairway needs!
8: Discraft (Undertaker, XL) Same as above
9: Innova (FireBird, ThunderBird, Savant, Valk, Sidewinder, RR) FH rollers to BH rollers and everything in between.
10: Discmania (PD, TD, TD2, CD) PD alone is good, add in the TD and CD for the tight stuff and a TD2 for rollers and these could be the only drivers you could need.
11: Millennium (Astra-X, Aries, Astra) Stuff you just don't see on the course but flies really well.
12: Dynamic (Enforcer, Trespass) Honestly could've been Discraft or Innova but you can cover all the lines with these even if these are the max D drivers that you carry.
13: MVP (Energy, Nitro, Octane, Catalyst) I usually don't throw over speed 12 so these wouldn't be used much unless I absolutely need a skip at the end of my flight.
14: Westside (World, Catapult, Destiny, King, Queen) Same as above

1. Hefty Paper Plate. Wouldn't need a 1 speed disc, so I'll bring a plate for snacks after the round.
2. Reptillian Fossil Scales. Nice overstable putter.
3. Gateway Soft Wizards. Best Putters/Throwers around.
4. Discraft Z Comets. Best Mid Around when there is not wind.
5. Millenium Q Sentinel. Great Stable Disc for some wind.
6. Innova Viper (DX and Champion) DX wear into good Mid to Fairway Bridge, Champ for super overstable duty.
7. Legacy Pinnacle Rivals. Some fly like Teebirds some like Eagles, either way they're great.
8. Vibram Onyx. Maybe use it for rollers.
9. Dynamic Discs Lucid Felons. Great wind fighter.
10. Discmania C Line PDs. Great disc for wind and beats to straight.
11. Viking Discs Ragnarok. Just because it filled the 11 spot. Plus it sounds bad ass.
12. DGA Hurricanes (P-Line and SP) Completely underrated disc.
13. Latitude 64 Gold Line Bolt for super flippy shots and rollers.
14. Westside Tournament Kings. Just because you said we had to fill them all.

Good list, except for the speed 1 paper plate.
Everyone knows the Hefty brand plates are speed 0.5 at best. On the other hand, if it were a Chinet plate, now we're in business.

Agreed. I would seriously consider a cart for this lot. And a sherpa.

Nice bag! And it matches your current, rather eclectic bag, rather well. I see that you have not limited yourself to a specified set of pet brands as some do.

I had considered a follow-up challenge of removing 7 of the choices from the original 14, creating a new "half-bag", and then reflecting on how suitable the resulting bag of discs would be. I expect that you would still find a workable bag with such a list.
