Default 2017 Bag

I throw RHBH.

1. Are their any holes in my bag? FYI,I hate beaded discs.
2. Aviar 3 vs P2??? Thoughts
3. I throw these 3 discs maybe 1-2 time each round or not at all: Thunderbird, Mako3, XT NOVA...should I keep them
4. I bag 6 extra discs for water and extra risky shots that I don't care if I lose. Good choice?? Thoughts??

First the water discs... why carry the Hydra, when you can just use the DX Aviar? And for that matter, just carry a DX Leopard or DX Teebird (which beats in to be TL-like), and you'd have them for water shots -AND- as potential backups if you lose a regular disc.

As to the rest:
Holes in the bag: an understable 9-speed like the Sidewinder would compliment your Thunderbird.

There are a couple of good threads in the Discs section about the Aviar3 vs. the P2. I like both, but the Av3 replaced the P2 -and- the Hornet in my bag. The Av3 is awesome, and worth giving a try.

On the discs you don't often throw, I'd ask if you use them at all on the courses you play. My preferred way to test their need is to leave one of them at home for a round. If you find yourself reaching for that disc, or wishing you had it for a certain shot, then put it back in the bag. If you go a round, then another, then another, without missing it... you can leave it out.

I dropped the P2 in favor of the Aviar3.
I am also added a new Champ Thunderbird so I have an overstable one and a beat in straight one.

My bag look set as of now.

Id add a star thunderbird. More OS than any champ thunderbird. I feel like a new and a seasoned champ will still be a lot of overlap. Also, if you haven't tried them, the DX thunderbirds are money, and hold their stability a surprisingly long time.

Going to add a Champion Sidewinder for that understable distance driver and can use it for rollers and just use 1 thunderbird.

If you can get your hands on a PFN Star Sidewinder, you must. They're IMO the best Sidewinders ever. That might actually be fact. Champs are a more on the stable side of things at first. If you want champ, definitely try one, but try out a champ Roadrunner as well.


Nevermind... didnt see your distances. At 380' the SW should be fine.

I think at your distances, the roadrunner would be a better roller off the shelf that you dont have to really crank over. Throwing air shots with it though, you'd get some pretty hard turn with little if any fade. I think Sidewinder would probably be similar, but have a more stable turnover if that makes sense, and begin coming back at the end of the flight. I also liked Sidewinders over RRs for hyzer flips
