I never come around here anymore, only came to see what people were saying about the McBeth switch. I figured I'd poke around a little and was pleasantly surprised to see you're still at it! We're also (still?) throwing about the same things around the same distances. I suspect most average, experienced players are at those same distances and I'm not really sure why people keep chasing the "next awesome disc". I guess boredom? I very, very rarely lose anything (maybe one disc a year at most) and try something new at about the same rate.

Actually, looking back at my post history, it looks like i've only added Harps and a Sidewinder over the past couple years.

2 Wizard
2 Ridge
2 Harp (one hard, one VIP)
2 Roc3 (both star)
4 Teebird (two GStar, one star, one champ)
1 roadrunner (champ)
1 sidewinder (star)
2 Escape (Lucid)
2 Firebird (1 star, 1 Sexton)

Thanks for the reply, good to hear from you! Your bag looks great! I swapped bags with a buddy for a round this summer and I was really digging his Ridge. Kinda wish I'd grabbed a few before they went OOP. Cheers!

I threw 34 holes yesterday and 27 holes the day before.

167 4x Star Destroyer
154 Starlite Wraith

175 2018 Sexton Firebird
175 2015 Sexton Firebird
167 12x Champ Firebird
171 5x Champ Valkyrie
168 GStar Sidewinder

176 2x Champ Roc3
176 12x KC Pro Roc

175 BT Hard Harp
175 Soft Wizard
175 Fossil Wizard
175 Glow Wizard (2)
176 Organic Wizard (2)

I brought bag as I did on Thanksgiving, close to the setup that I had in May/June.. But with the temps in the high 30s, the bag I actually ended up throwing looked more like this:

167 4x Star Destroyer
175 2018 Sexton Firebird
168 GStar Sidewinder
176 2x Champ Roc3
175 Glow Wizard (2)

This is similar to what I was throwing last winter. The 2018 Sexton was hot, I like its stability right now. It has taken over as my main thrower and I may take the 2015 out of the bag.

I remember when you first started posting your bag. You had what, 4 discs? Like the progression.

I've been playing the last couple weeks in 20s and snow. The ground is only thinly covered, so the conditions have been really nice for December. The ground is frozen and I'm throwing almost 100% standstills. I use the weather as a chance to experiment. I haven't really changed the bag, but I've adjusted it for winter. It's like the smaller bag I posted earlier, I'm throwing less discs.

167 4x Star Destroyer BH
175 2018 Sexton Firebird FH
172 4x Champ Thunderbird BH/FH
168 GStar Sidewinder BH

177 DX Glow Roc BH

175 BT Hard Harp FH
175 Fossil Wizard BH

I really enjoy the stability of the Thunderbird right now.

I got a few new FAF Champ Firebirds. They are new runs, pearly, max weight. I put one in the bag because I need an overstable Firebird again. It throws very overstable as you can imagine, kind of like the old flat Champ Glow Firebird I used to have.
