Could always find a Eagle-L to toss in with an X mold like you probably have.

I think one of the reasons I quit on Eagles was I didn't like how Ls were stamped the same as Eagle Xs. Like shopping online at most places it's kinda a crapshoot whether you get an X or an L. Some places split them up.

But yeah. I like DX ones to beat up anyway.

No field work today. Maybe. Sudden rainstorm started right after work.

So I did end up field throwing.

I had a bunch of discs, but in the end it was between my Eagles and the River. I brought all of the Eagles.

On the Eagles: The orange DX is more os than my whites, and the champ isn't quite as bricky as I remember. Still a beefcake though. I honestly could probably cover all of my fairway shots with them but...

I'm liking the River. This particular one is very much like a longer Comet. Glides alot. Holds any line barring outside influence (wind/oat/etc.) I think I dropped them for XLs because I thought the River was finicky. Well, so are Comets. Anyway. I think I'll go back to having a four disc bag for now.

But I'm going old school. Like, before this thread existed old school. I honestly can't remember what midranges I threw, so I'm sticking with the Comet. I know I threw Mercies and Omega SS. I don't have the Omega any more, so Mercy it is. The River was my first fairway after a brief stint with Gazelles. And the Banshee was one of my first discs. Though this isn't my OG Banshee l:

For curious people, the first disc I bought for myself was a DX Wraith. It's currently in a lake. Then I ordered a DX Gazelle, DX Stingray, and an R-Pro Polecat from DiscNation. The Gazelle is in some brush. And theeeen I got a Champ Banshee. The disc I miss the most I still had it in the first post of this thread...

Anyway. Enough memories.

Opto River
Champ Banshee
X Comet
Eze Mercy

So I actually got out to play a round with that bag.

Champ Banshee: I really can't figure out why I thought this was a dud all those years ago. Flies like one of my fresh, domey Vipers, without the dome or as much glide. I'll blame it on the fact that I had just lost my favorite disc and it wasn't exactly the same.

Flies good. Nice and os.

Comet: It's a Comet. It's still the same.

Mercy: I didn't really throw this one, besides putts. But it feels amazing. I guess five years on a shelf was good for it? Velvety. I remember it feeling cheap plasticy. Not any more. I'll have to get another for throwing, this one is in OOP plastic.

And the River: Weird. It really is a Comet driver. If I throw well, it'll hold any angle and glide forever. Like, I wouldn't need another driver except for wind and trick shots. And OAT. Doesn't like OAT.

I keep trying to think of things to add, but the River can do anything. Same with the Comet. Maybe a Suspect. Maybe something to "rip" on out in the open. You know, to really let all the oats out.

So I just need to think of one more disc to add to fill the Slim Jim.

Eze Mercy
X Comet
River
Banshee

To add:
Suspect
Extra Mercy
Something to rip on
???

I went back to XLs. I just can't resist them. I still can cover the lines I had with the ones I lost. I probably won't stop throwing them until they no longer exist.

I don't like putting with Mercies. I don't know why. I love how my EZE Mercy feels, but meh. Maybe I'll go back to Voodoos. Maybe Shields. Maybe something random. I dunno.

I like having the Banshee. I might like Vipers more, but it's nice having one disc to cover my OS stuff and not having to worry about it getting beaten up.

Maybe I'll try the Reef again.

Talking

Losing a main driver can be such a frustrating experience. I lost a Champ TeeBird I'd been throwing for three years. I tried so many other TeeBirds and I never found a replacement. Honestly I kinda stepped away from the game for a while after that happened. Recently, when I've lost main drivers I've been better prepared with backups. This year I used it as fuel for my fire. I wouldn't stray from the XLs. Go right back to them and hit it hard!

Well, the main reason I keep thinking about other drivers is XLs are discontinued. They're still easy to find, but they won't always be easy to find. Maybe.

In other news: I've been putting with Magnets. I got a Ledgestone CT one, it feels kinda like KC Pro.

I haven't been playing much, it's hot and I'm not motivated when it's hot. You can also blame the army lolol.

I apologize if this has been mentioned, as I imagine it has to have been over 31 pages and with anyone mentioning the River... BUT. Have you checked out an FD as an alternative to the River? Less finicky, still goes far, and even more so than the river you could get away with mostly just throwing them as your only driver mold. For example, I found out that I'm satisfied FHing a domeyish CFD as one (several) clicks down from my thunderbirds. Then on the other side of the spectrum, I'm beating in a DFD for rollers.
