Nice bag. No holes that I can see, but you might consider something like an Xcal. That completely depends on how OS your Champ Destroyer is. I've seen some people throwing Destroyers that are more stable than my Xcal so it's hard to know.

Looks great!

Thanks
It is quite OS! I haven't had a chance to whip it around while the wind was whippin at a more than comfortable rate. Otherwise, if higher winds do pose a problem I usually lean toward the FB. However, I have considered something like an xcal, max or teerex for the more OS distance driver spot. But, until it poses an issue, we will just have to see!

I really like this bag, simple, uncluttered and not too many molds.

I love a meat hook distance driver like an Ape or Giant for power FH but you might be able to use your Destroyer for it.

Default First Sanctioned Tourney Bag!

I decided to decrease the speed of the discs I was using as I am improving my form. Keeping one light Destroyer in there for when there's room to bomb. I really like the bag now, and all of my discs get some party time.

Drivers:
Star Destroyer 168 - Max distance. Mostly use it when there is room to play with.
C-Line PD 175 - Main OS distance driver. Long sweeping hyzers. Moderate headwind/crosswind driver.
S-Line PD 168 - Main distance driver. Straight shots. Still has some fade at the end.
P-Line PD 167 - Tailwind driver. Anhyzer lines. Generally holds with a moderate finish.
Champ Teebird JL 175 - OS Teebird. Fairway hyzer lines. Has a decent amount of fade at the end. Like to power up and down.
Echo Teebird 175 - Straight fairway. Has a little HS turn, but it makes it workable.
DX Teebird 172 - Flippy bird. May take it out for some tailwind drives if I want less fade at the end.
Midranges:
Champ Roc3 JL 176 - Likes to flip up to straight but has a decent amount of fade. Line shaper.
McPro Roc3 180 - This one is the beginner of the cycle. I carry 2, but throw one. More glide, less fade than the champ.
Putters:
HPP Wizard 174 - Off the tee Wizard. Hyzer approaches.
SSS Wizard 173 - Straight or US approaches. Lay ups and long putts.
SS Wizard 175 - x2 Main putters. Wizards are the best!
Utility:
Champ Firebird 175 - Mainly for get-out-of-trouble OH or FH, serves its purpose in heavy winds.
Cryztal Drone 177 - Beefy midrange. Same as Firebird but to a shorter extent.

I've gotten plenty of rounds in already, although the snow keeps coming back up here. Wish it would be done. Snow doesn't hinder though... all the time.

I am playing in my first tournament on tomorrow. The Lakewood Open in White Bear Lake, MN. Anyone else going? It's a C-tier, and I signed up to play intermediates. I have never played the course nor have I played in a sanctioned event. However, I am not bad at disc golf. I am wondering if I should have played in advanced. Either way, it'll be a gauge for next time. And I am excited to play!

Cheers!

I honestly think learning how do drive a putter has done the most to improve my game. I love my HPP Wizard. Single handedly birdied 5 straight holes with it at a local course. My form has vastly improved already this year. This makes me excited and eager to throw more... one more week of school (finals) and the summer is mine!

Just wanted to share.

Cheers!

Well how did the tournament go? Did you find holes in your bag that you wanted something else for? Only thing I can really see now is a longer distance true turning disc. I don't have your power but I like a mamba for going right realllllly far before slow fade back. My beat wraiths can't match that same long turn

Tourney didn't go too well. Finished in the middle of the pack. Course was pretty tough, I should have played it before it. Will from now on. Still was fun! Learned I fit in intermediate for now.

The bag is ever changing. I don't update it too much. However, I'm not throwing the destroyer, at all really. I enjoy putting some power into the PDs. The PPD turns enough for me. Also good tailwind driver! I have a tern, well, I have a lot of discs. So that option is always there! Thanks for the inquiry/input!
