Hooray, another post.

Another -1. Which is good.

I flicked my Shield alot today. It was good.

My in the circle putts were better, I didn't have many out of the circle.

The wind was rather blowy today. It makes my XL turn over, and I don't really have this Viper dialed in for actual drives instead of just overstable shots. Needs work.

There are two holes here I always four. Or more. They're the "lol what's a line" kind of hole. I haven't figured out the best way to get through them.

Cobra is good.

One more good round like this and I'll go back to the blues and a massive 8 disc bag. I'd like a little more variety in my fairways. Probably a beefier Viper and my old beat one, and one of my medium Z XLs, and my not really beat X XL.

I'm surprised there's nothing to kick out the XLs for you. I just found out they are OOP now!

Good round! I just ordered an Upper Park Shift bag - I'm hoping it allows me flexibility to play like you. Plus or minus discs at will. I think I'd be able to handle a minimum of 8 discs and a max of 16 with just one bag. Maybe food for thought?

I still can't wait to get back to my parents house and find my Vipers.

I have quite a few XLs, so unless they suddenly start going for 100 dollars a peice, I don't think I'll switch. If they do, well, I'll have 700 dollars.

If I were forced to switch for some reason, the JLS is pretty similar.

I just use 3 different bags, that's how I'm flexible lolol

Although right now I'm just carrying them. The Slim Jim holds 8, and Ol' Crunchy holds 12-14 maybe depending on the disc type ratio. I don't know how many my Ranger holds, I haven't used it in years.

I like the Vipers because they're very OS, but actually have some glide and don't just dump. I like DX, and I like the deep rim. And I think my beat Viper is my longest disc. It has absurd glide. Except for rim width all its stats are more typical for a mid range.

I think I need a Sidewinder and a Rattler so I can make a snake bag. I think I'll have trouble finding a Python though...

Yes, yes, another post.

I suppose I've accomplished my goal. I honestly thought it would take longer. Now I can have an 8 disc bag. I feel like doing the same from the blues will take alot longer...

I shot a 0 today, the wind was really going.

The Viper I was using is starting to veer more towards bomber than reliable OS disc. I switched it out for a fresh one. This one is actually my only flat Viper, and has a higher PLH, so we'll see.

I'm using a X and Z XL instead of the ESP. They're a little less and more overstable, respectively.

Also added an Ontario Cobra and a Medium Shield. Woo.

Oh, and the pink Viper. A great disc.

Those are pretty discs. Have you tried one of the champion cobras with the dx stamp from the pro shop?

Yes, I have two of them. They have the plh of my flat Viper but some dome. They're stupid overstable. Sometimes I put one in bigger bags, but it's just a straight utility disc.

Eventually I'll stop making these stupid comments at the start of my posts.

Played the other course in town today. There are two good options, then that stupid new course, and a pitch and putt behind the high school.

Shot a +3. From the blues. I surprised myself. It's harder than my home course. It has longer holes and maybe some tighter lines, with elevation coming into play quite a bit more often. Also some difficult to get to water that I was two feet from going in...

That pink Viper was great. Threw a few with it that I'm sure went over 300 (which is good for me). Same with the X XL, though on different lines. I may have scratched 300 with the Z XL, but it's more for control than going for big distance.

Never threw the beefy Viper.

A lot of my extra strokes came from missing stupid putts. Maybe I should actually practice...

One thing I felt I was missing was a long overstable disc, like my Boatman or Avenger. It's just for one hole on this one course, so it might not really be worth a slot. Not that I have a slot. It's a long downhill shot that cuts right at about 350. The discs I have bagged currently either turn over because of the downhill, or don't make it to the turn before cutting right. Hmmmm...

Apparently I can't read. I mean, they're both snakes so they're the same disc, right?

No, I haven't tried those Champion Cobras. I can't imagine them being too much different than my King Cobras... even if they are pretty.

Well, I did something silly. Besides posting every day.

I did a Comet only round. Just because, you know, Comets. And now I want to throw them again.

Midranges are definitely the thing that changes the most often for me.

I know, I weenied out of my improvement strategy. But I'm going to be travelling alot the next two months, and then I won't be able to disc golf for nine months, so... yolo?

Anyway. I still want to get better, so Comet only rounds at my home course and the local pitch and putt, but a bigger bag for the doubles, bigger courses, and new courses I go to while travelling. I do want to try Rollin' Ridge before I leave.

Anyway. The bag. Crunch Box. 12 discs. Incomplete sentences.

TC Shield- Putts
Medium Shield- Throws

X Comet- Main mid
Z Glo Comet- It's just a backup really. The X is fresh, so they're very similar.

Bio Suspect- Stable wind resistant mid.
Soft Suspect-More OS, hit and stick mid.

Beat DX Viper-Main distance disc (lol) Does great flex shots when thrown flat. Super glide.
DX Viper- Flat, OS. Utility?

I haven't figured out how I want my XLs. They're all great... But for now.

Yellow Z XL- My beefiest XL. More OS than the beat Viper, good for low line drives in the woods. Does pretty good in the wind.
Salmon Z XL-Has the lowest plh of my Zs. Also has some dome. I haven't really thrown it, I'm hoping it's between my Red Z and my ESP.
Blue X XL- A little beat. Gentle turnover on flat throws, straight on hyzerflips. Good frisbee.

And finally....

TP Boatman- I think I had a post talking it up a page ago, then promptly took it out. Long, HSS, good fade. Good glide but cuts the wind. Definitely longer than my fresh Viper, probably similar length to the beat Viper. Okay, it's probably shorter than that. But reliable and wind resistant. And it has a spooky guy on it. There's one hole I like it on in town, but who knows in other towns?

Let's see how long this lasts...

Thumbs up

Well, I was able to get to my parents this weekend and found my Vipers and cobras. Vipers are 177 and 180. Had no idea they were such heavyweights. Doubt I have the arm to get your distance with them. I had a couple cobras. Dx Ontario and the dx stamp champ, and a gummy feeling king cobra. Don’t remember how any of them throw so once the rain stops in Wisconsin I’ll maybe have some input on something more than “nice pictures!” I picked up an upper parks shift bag and can easily pull discs to accommodate these guys
