Had a setback last year rehabbing after shoulder surgery, so really played less than 10 rounds all year.
Hoping to use this to track my bag and figure out my lineup, as I'm now exclusively throwing forehand. No more backhands for this guy.

So, this will be interesting to track how my distance improves on my sidearm as I continue to rehab my arm, and because certain discs feel weird in my forehand grip. Mids is really where the biggest changes will be.


Drivers in the bag:
C-PD - CFR, plenty stable
S-PD - little turn so a bit longer than the C-PD
DX Valkyrie - wide open distance
Drivers being tested:
Neutron Virus - should be pretty understable
Plasma Insanity - a little straighter than the Virus, but overlap with some PDs?


Utility in the bag:
Star Wraith - freakish overstable monster. Skips, FH rollers, etc.
Utility being tested:
Gstar Firebird - shrug...we'll see


Fairways in the bag:
Star Teebird - just straight, straight, straight
Neutron Relay - neat little disc - not sure it's understable enough
Fairways being tested:
Champ Leo3
Star Eagle
DX Eagle


Mids is tough. I've been throwing Rocs/Comets for a long time, but I don't like how they feel in a FH grip, so I'm blowing this all up.
Mids in the bag:
Star VCobra - little turn, but pretty straight
DX Stingray - understable
Mids being tested:
Big Z Buzzz OS
Z Buzzz
DX Cobra


Putters in the bag: (No changes here.)
Zone - duh
Proxy - duh
DX Polecat - 147g, so useful
2 XT Aviars - putting only

Not sure if you want any feedback but if you like forehanding Proxy, M4 by Prodigy has a very similar flight path, i.e., straight no fade. I forehand both. M4 comes out when I want something longer than Proxy or if I don't feel like back handing proxy. If your mids are in flux .... best on the rehab!

That's a good consideration. I rotate an M5 in my understable slot sometimes. It's the only Prodigy I've thrown.

I really like the Buzzz for forehand touch shots. Very versatile and I think more people could use it.

I'm just curious... what shots do you use that Polecat for? I have a much heavier one so I'm wondering how much the weights overlap...

I always carried a 175 kitty, but then the Proxy created some overlap. So the light one is for all the weird stuff close to the basket. Impeded stance, shots where you can't make a full throw with your arm, long putts, low ceiling putts, etc etc.

I had a shot a couple weekends ago kneeling behind/in a brush pile from about 60 feet. Stretched out kitty flick on a big anny and canned it. Hole 1. Pretty much zero good shots the rest of that round.

The m4 is only Prodigy I've thrown I was just really surprised at how well I like to forehand it. I throw it same way as I do the Proxy... slight hyzer goes straight. Some people call it flippy but to me it's more stable. Best

It is remarkably clear that I throw the Relay better than any disc in my bag at this point.
