Ranger, I'm on board with you with the under stable fairways being tricky slot.

Could all of Leo3 be covered between Cobra and a powered down fresh Sidewinder (or Roadrunner)?

I think so.

Champ tern
Leo3
DX cobra


Probably overkill. I haven't thrown a fresh roadrunner in years. How does it compare to a champ tern?

Sometimes the dilemmas become too great and it's better if you just quit and make birdhouses maybe.

Endless tweaks


Thinking about moving away from the terns and adding in some seasoned destroyers or wraiths. Terns can be annoying.

My 2015 sexton is nicely seasoned and super fun to throw but maybe not OS enough for a utility disc. Might need to add in a new one.

I've been messing with a color glow teebird and a nybo to fill in for the champ Thunderbird. Not all that different to be honest.

I was able to grab an old eagle L for cheap that's been really nice in the understable fairway spot. I can probably keep the leo3 out of the bag and just use the seasoned star TB for straight.


Added a Sanny sentinel and it's been niiiice.

I've also been experimenting with aviars after randomly playing a round with a DX I had in my stash. I'm not selling all my wizards or anything, but the no bead has been giving me some really nice clean releases.

I'm still bagging a wiz for drives. It's great, but I suck at using it for technical approach shots. If star aviar3s are ever back in stock I may try that with a DX to cover drives and up shots.

The OS putter revolving door continues. Pig and gator both out and zone back in.

In that 11, 12 speed range, the Wraith/DD rim was always the best for me. I don't know why, but I never felt my grip was quite right on a Tern, Destroyer, etc. and I just had the best leverage and releases with Wraiths/DDs. Between the two you can pretty well cover any stability so I'd say go for it.

Zone is clearly the answer in the OS putter category, plus it's fast enough to ditch a truly OS mid. Stop experimenting.
