  • Whats in your playing bag?

    So I love to read what others use. I myself believe it's helpful in determining what kind of new discs I'm gonna splurge on. So here's what I got in my playing bag;
    Drivers:
    A 173 ESP Force (new)
    A 171 ESP Force (beat)
    A 174 ESP Crush (beat)
    A 173 Elite Z Crush (new)
    A 174 Elite Z SS Avenger (kinda new)
    A 174 L.E. ESP Venom (kinda new)
    A 174 Pro D Venom (beat beyond beat)

    Midrange:
    174 FLX ESP Buzzz (new)
    174 Elite Z Wasp (kinda new)
    176 Pro D Drone (beat)
    178 FLX ESP Drone (NEW!!!)

    Putters:
    171 FLX ESP Challenger (beat)
    171 Soft APX (beat)
    174 DGA Steady Ed Powerdrive (doesn't matter if it's new or beat, it's floppy)

    I've got like 10 more discs but mostly Innova and friends don't let friends throw Innova I still miss the Cro though

      This statement baffles me. If you like the Cro, why don't you throw it? Because your friends tell you it's not cool?

        Actually all my friends throw Innova or Gateway. The only reason I don't throw it is since I got the Buzzz and the Wasp I don't have any need for a fast straight, slightly overstable midrange. I do throw it when I goto the field to practice bombing and it's always in the trunk of the car just waiting for an opportunity to come out. Plus I just like the way Discraft Discs actually do what they say they are going to do.
        Other things not in the bag:
        Super Stupid Soft Magic 174. Bought it, threw it, retired it. A disc for when I take people out that have never played.
        Super Soft Wizard 174. Was my goto putter until I threw a Challenger.
        Two 174 Star Cro's. One super beat and one practically new.
        Two 171 Star Wraiths. Bought them thinking I would throw them great. Instead they turnover and die a horrible death.
        Two 172 Champion Vikings. They stayed until I found the Flash. Unfortunate for me that I just threw my Flash into the water off of 11 @ Downriver thanks to a 20 mile an hour cross gust.
        180 Champion Coyote. Found the Buzzz, no need for it ever again.
        Last but not least. 173 Aerobee Epic. Love this thing but I throw my Venom further then I throw the Epic for thumbers.

          Bag du Jour:

          175g Z Surge
          169g Opto Striker
          172g Opto Vision
          168g Z Predator

          175g ESP Buzzz
          175g ESP Wasp
          175g Z Glide

          171g ESP Zone
          ???g Pro-D Challenger

          Is this "what's in your bag" thread going to turn into a Discraft vs. Innova slugfest? I'd like to see some healthy Lat64 arguments thrown in.

              Wow... why would you throw so much Discraft when there are better discs made by another company?

              Front:
              175g DX XD
              175g JK-Pro Aviar X

              Right

                Sam is right. Innova is much better. I love buying three of the same mold disc, in the exact same weight, in the same plastic, and feeling like I own three completely different discs.

                All kidding aside, throw what you like to throw, regardless of the company that made it. Until one of the plastic companies show you any loyalty, why feel loyal to them?

                  Pffft... Thanks for the caricature of reality, Mitch. Have you ever purchased three Innova discs of the same mold and the same weight? I am thinking not...

                    Actually, Mr. Smarmy-Pants, I have done exactly that. On multiple occasions. Which is why I was more than happy to trade discs at the swap meet out at the RCO. I may not be as experienced as you, or throw as well as you do, but I don't just flat-out lie for the sake of continuing an argument. Though with you, I have considered it.

                    See you this weekend, bro.

                      Man, I need to get rid of a few discs... Hmmm what to dump.
                      My first thought is wow, that quite a bit of the same discs over and over again... 4 destroyers, teerex, max, and a monster; 7 discs that do almost the same thing; I'd prob get rid of the 2 newer pro destroyers cuz your teerex or max do the same thing as the 2 newer pro destroyers, but that's just me...

                      I have tonssss of drivers but depending on the course, i'll drop out a whole bunch...

                          Nah, never happen, not with bags being made to hold 25 discs or more... Now I think the PGA should allow balls to be replaced during a hole, balls that will go left, right, spin more, roll more etc... that would be cool...

                              The three Pro Destroyers are my primary big distance drivers. I keep 3 in my bag at different levels of wear so if I lose one I am not completely crippled by the loss. There's always another one right there to replace it.

                              The Champion Glow Destroyer is extremely overstable, so it may very well take the place of the Max. It may not be quite as stable, but I think I can make it do the same thing with a little adjustment to my throw.

                              The Champion Monster is solid from 300-350ft, so it suits its purpose very well.

                              The Teerex is so beat up it's almost like a long Teebird, but it is definitely shorter than the Destroyers.

                              In summary: I think the Max is about to get benched.
