Default D Dubya’s ongoing bag saga

Before you get into the meat & potatoes, I DO NOT cycle. I only throw newer discs, and I don’t carry different wear rates, so all the molds are pretty much necessary to my game. I really am not looking to change anything just yet as I’m happy with how everything works and I’m still learning. I more want to put this all down on paper so I can track myself as I progress, but feel free to berate me, high five me or whatever you see fit. Cheers!

I don't cycle, either. (And I say that with pride.)

Nice bag. Some molds are different than mine, and some are the same, but you cover all the shots. And you've got your lid (Birdie). I've never tried a Birdie, and I probably should to see what fun I'm missing out on...

DUDE! The birdie is the king of the lids. After really dialing the birdie, the polecat feels too long to me. It can do so much in such a small space, the sky is the limit when you learn its secrets!

I can see that about the Polecat. Its glide really surprised me when I first tried it. And regarding the 'small space', I tried the Polecat after others on these boards said it was a 'get out of jail' disc.

Lids rule!

Lids DO rule!

Cracks me up when people say stuff like “they’re good for beginners” or “I had one of those when I first started!”

I honestly feel that when people “outgrow” lids they’re really doing themselves a disservice... But I’m happy to take their money! Haha
