I have one that's orange and I don't really like it for the forehand roller. Too soft.

The bag has stayed the same for the most part lately. Trying to decide on a distance mold though. Been flip flopping through Wraiths/Destroyers/Forces/Nukes. What hasn't change in over a month are my Fairways/Mids/Putters. The Mamba is only in there until the Pro Wraith loses some more stability and then it will be gone. Might put a Ti Force in the bag for the distance wind duties now that fall is here.

Distance
Champ Destroyer (Worn a little and still pretty overstable)
Star Destroyer (New and straight)
Star Destroyer (Worn and understable)

Fairways
Champ Firebird (Headwind and thumbers)
Star Teebird (New and still fairly overstable)
Echo Star Teebird (Worn and straight)
S-FD (Worn and straight to turnover)
S-FD (Beat only goes right and rollers)

Midranges
E-Blaze (Thumbers, Spikes, Forehand, Skips)
Glo Z-Buzzz (Fairly Beefy)
Z-Buzzz (Moderately Overstable)
Midnight Z-Comet (Straight)
Z-Comet (Beat and only goes right)

Putters
Medium/Soft Wizard (Primary Putter)
Medium/Soft Wizard (Backup Putter)
Organic Wizard (Short Drives)
Proto Magic (Short Drives and approaches)

There are two really sweet max D discs that are golfable. Getting your mitts on a good VIP King is a hassle involving verifying a tall dome and a high PLH and they vary so the easier to procure varying Zero G Quasars might be the best bet. At your power i suggest a max weight.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I've got a Zero G Quasar and Scorpius in the closet that I got from players packs....still haven't thrown them. My one time trying to throw that light weight stuff was horrible.

Winds, light ones? At your power only the heaviest ones could work. Anything rest is flip city and of course Blizz suffers from horrible individual variations. If the PLH droops lower than on most discs you could tune that up and see if it resolves the issues.

I test threw a 139g Blizz Destroyer and a 137g Blizz Boss. They were only slightly less stable than their regular star counterparts. The problem I had was that every throw was off the mark to the right by about 60 feet. I normally like to throw 171g-172g for my drivers. I do know some of our local pro's that have had good luck with carrying a blizzard mold for pure distance shots on the course and can make the transition easily. So, maybe just need some practice.

There are some serious longevity issues with the gateway plastic as of late. Just got tired of having to replace a mold after only having it in the bag for a week or two. Now don't get me wrong, the Samurai is one bad ass driver, but I want to carry only one distance driver mold, hence the Wraith or Destroyer or Force. I may just carry the Wraith, and put something fast and beefy in the side pocket for special occasions.

That kind of weight difference leads to grip locks easily if you're not accustomed to 150s or lighter. Confirmed by local bombers too. That is why i thought 157-158 would be better in addition to flight lines. Before trying out heavier Blizzards that have more plastic and can be marginally more durable i'd try a two finger grip if you haven't yet. Then three. Sure it won't solve the issues with durability at your power but these should be hot rod discs anyway and something else should carry the heavy weights being a workhorse.

even in the e plastic? if so that sucks. I got a chance to throw a light s samurai one of the local female pro had the other day and holy crap that thing went for ever. What did you think fo the slayer I had a proto for a couple minutes and it was a flick machine but it was the color of a latte and i play in the oregon forrests so it went a way fast. between z,esp,and x nukes you should be able to cover most shots. the sword is very useable as well.

The newer run E-Samurai's are in a stiffer E blend, but even that doesn't hold up to well to tree smacks(I know...hit fewer trees). The Slayer is also a good mold, but had become inconsistent lately. I couldn't find two that flew at the same stability. I really liked the proto e-slayers that I tested out. In regard to the durability, I am referring so the S and some of the E blends. The mystic's, karma's and sabre's that I had were pretty much chunk'ed if they took any sort of tree smack. The plastic is soft to the touch, but rather rigid over all. I think that it's inability to have some flex in it is what was causing the early destruction of the disc. I would love to see the Samurai, Slayer and Mystic ran in Z plastic and maybe ESP for the Mystic.

A couple of additions to my bag. These are mainly utility disc's and only get thrown maybe once a round.

Champ Mamba - Great uphill turnover disc and useful when stymied up against the shule. Very easy to throw low power disc. Also a decent roller.
Star Roadrunner - When I want something that is straight stable and a little longer than my Echo Teebird or S-FD. This one is really domey and quite stable for a roadrunner.

Why not just get a TD? It is like a stable RR and you won't have to find a special one to fly that way.

I may give the TD a second look when this roadrunner loses some stability. The first time I tried the TD, it just didn't feel right in my hand. Not sure why as it is more or less a faster roadrunner.
