  • What's in your bags for 2011 Ladies?

    We have been a little quite lately ladies, so I thought I would start a new thread.

    Here is what is currently in my bag:

    Drivers:

    R-Pro Katana 159 new
    R-Pro Katana 157 seasoned (My go to driver when I want to throw far)
    R-Pro Boss 150 new (Throwing this more and more lately watch out kantana)
    R-Pro Boss 160 new
    R-Pro Xcalliber 150 new (just added this recently, and love it for forehands)
    Star Wraith 161 worn (this is my go to forehand disc)
    Champion Wraith 161 new
    Champion Firebird 157 worn (love this disc for flicks I want to fade hard and quick. Also found it to be a really good disc in the wind)
    Champion Sidewinder 160 (rollers & anhyzers)
    Champion Roadrunner 159 (rollers & anhyzers)
    Champion Vulcan 158 new (undecided about this so far still trying it out)
    Star Valkyrie 162 worn (used to be my go to driver, but just don't throw this as much as I used to.)
    Star Valkyrie 150 worn

    Fairway drivers:
    Star TL 161 seasoned (probably the disc I have thrown the most. Flies super straight for me)
    Star TL 162 new

    Mids:

    Star Cro 169 seasoned (really the only mid I throw)
    dx Stingray 167 worn (love this disc for shorter anhyzer shots)

    Putter:

    RW Aviar 175 worn
    R-pro Dart 175 worn (recently put this disc back in my bag for jump putting)

    Well, I've totally redone my bag, based on the class Randy and I took lately with Dave. I was told that part of my problem, is that I shouldn't be throwing 150g discs -- I need to be up closer to 170g, because the light discs have been encouraging bad habits, and cutting my distance. So, now my skeleton bag is:

    168g Vision Grip Line
    about a 170g soft Voodoo
    about a 175g old style DX XD

    I have some other heavier discs of Randy's that I'm auditioning, but I haven't decided on any others yet.

      hmm. not gonna lie. this advice is counterintuitive to me... but hey, if it works for you...

        oh, right...

        ... what's in my bag

        2 or 3 150 r-pro bosses (i like one old, one medium and one brand new)
        160ish star wraith (trying it out for forehands)
        161 star valkyrie (my one and only buck huck)
        150 star valk (mostly used at this point for skinny sneaky overhand shots)
        166 champion leopard
        150 champ sidewinder (oh, pinky, i'm glad we finally got our issues worked out... i missed you)
        167 baby blue (yes, the color does matter) eclipse (sometimes i carry two, just for security, like a blankie)
        175 hot pink eclipse
        175 xd
        175 r-pro aviar
        175 aviar

        ... and i'll just leave it at discs and won't get into the excessive list of "other"

          I won't kid you. A lot of Dave's teachings seemed a little odd, and this was the suggestion that bothered me the most. His explanation is that I can't yet get enough spin to maintain the momentum on a lighter disc. A heavier disc maintains the spin for longer because it has more initial angular momentum, given the same spin. He also said I have the strength, but I need to learn how to apply it. So, that's why he suggested I throw heavier discs. Maybe after I work on my form, and I'm able to get more spin, then I could drop back down.

          It does seem to be making at least somewhat of a difference. I'm getting about 10-12% more distance, so that's a good thing. I have a whole list of things to work on before the weather gets better, and fortunately, most can be done indoors!

                I copied and pasted from other thread: Ladies: what's in your bags, and the post date was February 4, 2010
                In my Gorilla Boy Silverback bag:
                Drivers:
                150 Champion Valkyrie
                168 Star Valkyrie
                150 Champion Sidewinder
                167 Star Sidewinder

                Fairway:
                150 Star Leopard
                167 DX Leopard
                166 Star Teebird
                166-168 ESP Buzzz(cannot live without it)

                Putters:
                171 DX XD
                174 SS Wizard.


                As of today, still carry Gorilla Boy Silverback bag:
                Drivers:
                R Pro Katana 158g
                R Pro Boss 150g
                Star Sidewinder 150g
                Champion Valkyrie 150g
                Star Orc 156g

                Mid range/fairways:
                Champion Leopard 150g
                Star Teebird 149g
                Star TL 161g
                ESP 2010 Ace Race 145g to 150g
                ESP Buzzz 168g

                Putters:
                Star XD 174g
                SS Wizard 174g

                The biggest difference is the weights of disc which I use more 150g to 160g expect for Buzzz and putters. I see most of the players have back up discs, and I do have back up discs but it is in other bag which I bring with my bag.

                              ... i know a lot of gals throw heavier than i do... however, this is what i know about heavy vs. light... i played for 10 years throwing what my dad threw (heavier... 170's and such)... the first time i ever threw a 150 (it was a star valk, pink... the original pinkie) it went further, faster and prettier than any drive i had ever thrown and i hardly even tried to throw it... i now throw heavier valks than that... but i'm only talking like a 160 or 162... my midranges i do throw heavier, but drivers, i like 'em light... maybe this is due to my ridiculously short arms...

                              ... i also know it is foolhardy to only have lightweight stuff, 'cause you can't throw it in the wind...

                              ... i would be very interested to hear from teresa, carie and suzie q about what weights they throw... girls???

                              peace,
