Disc Golfers, what's in your bag?
It's that time of year again and I'm hoping to play as much as possible this year.
I just started last fall and have played a whopping 7 times now. I got a basic beginner set from Dunhams Sports for christmas. I'm just curious as to what discs you all use, how many, and and types.
I currently use the following 3 Innova Disks
Leopard DX Driver 170g
Shark DX Midrange 150g
I'm anxious to see how they break in and behave also as I learn to consistently throw them. I'll probably stick to just these 3 this year as I learn unless one gets broken. or I get to play a lot and need to add as one becomes understable.
And for you multi-disc-ers, how much of a PITA is it carry those large bags?
Well I am a multi discer. I carry the Revolution Dual pack seen here
Here is what is in my bag 95% of the time. I also have about another 30 backup disc and random disc at home along with my portable basket.
In the bag right now
SSS Gateway Voodoo
SS Gateway Voodoo
Pro D Buzzz
ESP FLX Buzzz
2x DX Tbirds
2x champ Monarchs
I know it seems like a lot but they are in different stages of wear and have them incase I loose one during a round.
It is not a PITA to carry a bag at all. I find it to be more of a PITA to carry just disc with now bag.
There is also a random new disc or 2 that I am trying out in the bag.
Other non disc items in the bag
during tournaments I carry a stool as well.
Star Destroyer 169 - Couldn't live without it
Star Tee Rex 170 - This thing has been through hell and back and is still pretty damn stable.
Champion Monarch 175 - Meh, I liked this disc at first but the more it gets broke in the more I am over-throwing it.
A 174 and a 175 Star Tee Bird - Straight fliers and tough as nails, love these for the wooded courses.
I also have a light Valkyrie and I might still have a champion Tee Bird too.
MRV BABY! - Until recently this was my only mid-range. I now have coyote, a Z-glide, a Roc and a classic Roc.
Two Aviar putters.
In addition to the discs I have a bottle of water, marker disc, pen, scorecard and a rag. If it's going to be a long day I will usually bring some ale. The next brewery project is going to be a cart that holds my bag and an insulated keg.
In the past I haven't carried a bag, but I will this year.
I don't carry too many discs, but I've generally got:
KC Pro Banshee
I've got a number of other discs that rotate in and out. I really like Star plastic.
The blowfly is a nice disc to have if you're playing at a course with water (or cliffs). Fitzgerald Park in Grand Ledge, MI has a hole that ends in a downhill to a stagnant pond. Thanks to the blowfly I've never lost a disc in there.
That's when it becomes money with the hyzer flip! Also, makes a great roller disc. that is why I carry 2 of them
I've been disc golfing before(in my college days) and know that there are some essentials being left out here. You hippies know what I'm talking about. :)
I keep it simple with three disks. Nothing special
Aviar-X putt and approach
Innova Champion VALKYRIE
Innova Rock Mid range multi-purpose.
They're all filthy too. Gotta get some new once spring comes around.
I have 5 discs. Often I end up lending a couple to a friend. Trying to get back into it a gain. I had a tear in my right wrist a couple of years ago and my wrist aches after a round of disc golf.
