Slowhand's Bag

Postby Slowhand » Wed Jan 13, 2010 4:18 pm

3x 175 SSS Wizard - putt and approach
175 Star Spider - stable midrange, beat out 176 Crystal Z Buzzz and 178 ESP Buzzz
175 Star Gator - overstable midrange
174 CE Teebird-L - stable fairway
174 Star TL - stable fairway
2x 175 Opto Trident - overstable fairway, replaces 175 Champion Whippet-X
170 Star Valkyrie - turnover distance
175 flat Star Xcaliber - headwind distance
175 domey Echo Star Xcaliber - hyzer distance
175 Star Max - huge hyzer, strong headwinds
175 Champion Boss - anhyzer distance, roller
6x 150 to 164 R-Pro Boss - max distance

I prefer the stable to overstable molds being equally confident in my backhand and forehand accuracy.

I was going to ask what you threw when you wanted to go right, then I realized you can FH too! I wish my technique was that versatile. Have you tried the Protana instead of the R-Pro Boss?

I prefer FH because I can see my target through out my throw. I tried the katana, but it's too flippy for my FH distance. I'm having more success with a Valk hyzer flip with tailwind (controllable to 400') and Xcal with headwind (320') / no wind (360').

^^ a Champ Leopard that heavy is likely to fly pretty straight, as opposed to the long turnovers that Leos are famous for.

I use the heavy Leopard to get around big turns that an overstable disc won't cut hard enough to clear. I throw it on a near verticle hyzer release, almost flips flat, hits the apex, and cuts hard. I use my beat Teebird or beat Gazelle for straight shots.

2x 175 SSS Magic
170 Soft Magic
175 Soft Wizard
2x 178 Dx Cobra
3x 173-4 Dx Gazelle
3x 160-3 R-Pro Boss
177 Z Wasp
175 Champion Whipett-X
175 Champion Firebird
175 Star Max
175 Champion Leopard
3x 170-1 Star Xcaliber

The Magic replaced the Wizard for putts. I've been hitting a lot of metal with the Cobra for mids. The Gazelle (beat to new) has pushed the Teebird out of my bag.

The gator and whippet-x do not overlap. The gator can't spike hyzer like the whippet-x. The whippet-x skips off too hard on a 100 foot headwind shot where the gator is money.

The road runner and sidewinder do overlap, but I'm spending a lot of time working on distance rollers (hitting 450-500). I get more practise throws having a second roller disc.

Thanks for the feedback.
