the Beast is indeed the Valk on steroids. obiwan throws heavy valks, and a heavy beast rules as well. if you like Firebirds and Valks and want the "in-between", this is it. Newer Demon mold is WAY overstable. CE Shark is true to the Ontario mold and kicks major ass. Hail the Shark (beadless Roc)!

As of 12/28/02 I have: 3 valkyries, 2 beasts (super valkyries), 1 jls, 1 storm, 1 stratus, 1 omega ap, 1 soft omega, and 1 x-puttr. The beast is going to be the big disc this year. It may even get the distance record this year. The beast is great for forehand and will probably make a good roller.

I'm a recreational player with 5 years of experience. I throw a right-handed backhand, and my longest throws measure 300-310 feet. I use a Gateway Tour Bag that holds about 23 discs in the main storage area, with capacity for about 10 more in the two side pouches. I currently have 103 discs in my collection, and here are the fortunate ones that make the final cut:

My primary driver is the Innova-Champion Gazelle. Innova classifies it as being a "very long range" driver. For me, it has most of the distance of their "ultra long range" drivers--except that it has more control, accuracy and predictability. Because I don't have a big arm, I emphasize "course management" in my strategy, and I value those attributes at a premium. I select from several weights depending on the wind conditions and the angle of release.
Gazelle, 11x KC Pro, 150g. in translucent white;
Gazelle, 10x KC Pro, 160g. in glorious white;
Gazelle, 10x KC Pro, 166g. in creamy white;
Gazelle, 10x KC Pro, 171g. in semi-translucent white;
Gazelle, 10x KC Pro, 175g in frosty white.

My favorite approach disc is the XD. I keep a spreadsheet of what discs I used off the tee when I scored a deuce. For holes in the 200' to 240' range, this disc has gotten me more deuces than any other. The XD is also my favorite putter in light wind conditions.
XD, made in DX plastic, 164g. in bright red.

I carry several other drivers with me that offer more distance than the Gazelle--at the expense of control. I might use them if I want to make a "Hail Mary" attempt to reach a hole that's just out of the range of my Gazelles.
TeeBird, DX, 168g. in smokin' red;
Cheetah, 10x KC Pro, 168g. in pearly white;
TeeBird, 9x KC Pro, 175g. in lovely white.

Also for extra distance, I carry a couple of 150 class drivers that I enjoy throwing in calm conditions.
TeeBird, DX, 148g. in pumpkin orange;
Eagle, DX, 143g. in solar orange.

I carry several discs for turnover shots.
Hammer Head, special plastic that floats, 180g. in glowing orange: slowest speed turnovers;
Stingray, DX, 180g. in crimson red: midrange turnovers or longer approach shots in calm conditions;
Leopard, DX, 165g. in fire-truck yellow: long range turnovers or hyzers that flatten out;
Leopard, DX, 175g. in fire-truck red: long range turnovers.

I also carry a good midrange disc
Classic Cobra, DX, 179g. in snowy white: Innova describes it as "combin[ing] the best features of the Cobra and Stingray."

Every once in a while, you've got to use the 360 turnaround flex shot for fun on an open hole. I like the Cheetah Two, which Innova describes as "a small run of Gazelle plus Cheetah." Relative to a similar weight Gazelle, I find the Cheetah Two to have much more stability, but retaining the control and predictability.
Cheetah Two (a.k.a. Flat Top Cheetah), DX plastic, 165g. in Valentines Day red.

I carry some other approach discs, in addition to my beloved 164g. XD that I mentioned earlier.
"Classic" Aero, DX, 149g. in psychedelic purple: putts, if there's a strong wind directly at my back;
"Classic" Aero, DX, 180g. in deep red: approach shots and putts in completely calm conditions;
XD, DX, 174g. in fiery red: an alternative to the 164g. XD in slightly more windy conditions;
"Classic" Roc, DX, 162g. in hot red: offers more stability than the XD, but less than a Roc;
Roc, DX, 149g. in electric blue: used for approach hyzers and skip approaches;
Roc, the venerable 8x KC Pro, 175g. in burnt orange: approach shots / putts into the wind or strong L-R crosswinds. [For tailwinds and R-L crosswinds I would probably opt for something less stable.]

I hope that those of you with a similar ability level find this to be helpful. Thanks to everyone who responded, as I enjoyed reading all of the submissions and learned some valuable tips!

Jim Plattes (
So many discs....So little time
JK Valkyrie - this model holds the distance record, so it must be good. 167 grams. Kind of slippery.
MRX - I was using a shark, then an Avair for approach shots, but since I found this disc, I've been using it for approach shots. It feels great in my hand. It tracks beautifully. I just switched from the three finger grip to a modified fan grip for approach shots, and this disc is working for me. Plus I love the tie-dye pattern.
Teebird 169 grams(regular plastic) - I hit my one and only ace with this disc on a 240 foot hole. I lost that one, but I keep buying them. I've lost three.
Avair - Good putter.
ZXS - It looks good. Easy to find in the snow. Green translucent. Hit a lot of trees and roads with it and it still is in good shape.
KC Cheetah - Just got this. Beautiful fly dye pattern. I started with a Cheetah two years ago so it's a sentimental purchase. It's got the CHAMP'S initials on it. It must be good.
Elite X2 - I found this one too. It seems to be good. It weighs 172 grams.
Eagle 148 grams - They say the light weight discs are harder to control. I don't always bring this one along. Good for downwind shots.

I've got a lot of other discs. I don't know how to evaluate them all. I keep aquiring them.

I'm a new player. Only two and one half years. My game is evolving fast. I'm over 50. I started out using only sidearm for distance shots. I'm trying to perfect the backhand for longer distance. I have to learn to throw over 300 feet. It's going to happen. I play almost every day.

My bag was getting too cluttered, so I have tried to cut back:

Z-Reaper 175 gram, red (for stiff headwinds)

11X KC Pro TeeBird 169 gram, clear red (drives with some left fade, light headwinds)

JK Pro Valkyrie 165 gram, clear green (still conditions)

Elite Z Putt'r 172 gram, blue (short approaches/long putts)

Elite X Putt'r 172 gram, red (short putts -- I have not used this much, will compare it to my soft Wizard)

Posted on Friday, October 04, 2002 at 10:48
My bag is probably a little more rounded than most, but only because I like to have options. I probably should narrow down my selection, but then I wouldn't have all my options! So, here goes...
I have a 173 Z Reaper, a 163 EXP, a 171 Archangel, a 170 Champion Ed. Eagle, a 172 Eagle, a 171 Teebird, a 174 Cheetah, a 166 Roc, a 179 MS polaris (I think polaris), a 176 Shark, and 3 Aviar Putters, all 174. I am soon going to be pulling out most of my old plastic and putting in a 172 XL superdrive, a 169 Terminator X-clone, and a 175 Cyclone.

I try to carry as few discs as possible - usually only three to four (although I have a whole trunkload of the damn things). These are the ones I carry the most often.

- KC Eagle 168g. (for my longest shots where I have a lot of room above and to the right. Even with a decent chunk out of it, the disc still flys on autopilot - gotta love that plastic)
- Cheetah 150 class (for those long distance, finesse shots. This thing takes almost no skill to throw well.)

- Aurora MS 162g. (this thing is amazing - it goes straight and drops like a rock. I sometimes throw this rather than my drivers if there is a serious wind or if I need to go very low).

- Classic Roc 163g. (this is really more of a mid-range disc, but it is so stable at low speeds that it performs better than my other three putters, even if I have to give up a bit on the chain-grab).

I also sometimes carry a 175g Stingray for slice shots and rolling in place of the KC Eagle (especially on shorter courses).

Posted on Friday, September 13, 2002 at 18:08
Rob (
I throw right handed side arm.

I use a tee bird as a driver because it gives me the best distance and flies straight.

I use a viper in the wind because it does not lose much distance even when the wind is pretty fierce. I also use this disc to dog leg left along with a valkyrie which dog legs left good.

I use a 150 eagle to dogleg right. If you throw it right it is the best disc for going right.

I use an XD for approach shots because it is easy to control except in heavy wind.

I use an aviar for putting.

Posted on Thursday, August 22, 2002 at 15:33
Jason (
I throw a right handed side arm drive and have found the Gateway Warrior to be the most stable with the best distance.

SirCaustic (
Leopard - 168G - I use this for those super long tees. It can do low liners or high hyzers. I get great distance from this one.

Cheetah - 148G - 150 Class. Love 'em! This has quite the left hook on it towards the end of the flight, but it will go pretty damn far if you put your arm into it.

Gazelle - 168G - long driver, usually for straight shots that bend to the left. Lots of distance if you keep it low.

Stingray - 176G- not old enough to be a roller just yet, but really good distance and it WILL go right if you force it.

Moray - 164G - just got this one and I am still trying to figure it out. I seem to be really inconsistant with it right now, though.

Viper - 177G - I only throw this one overhand. Great for going uphill as it tends to land on its face and slide for forward; therefore, it usually doesn't roll back down the hill for you, which as we all know, can be a royal pain in the ass. =)

Rhyno - 150G - another 150 class. Can't tell you how great these are. I can use this sucker for tee shots on shorter holes and it is a good go for it disc as it usually stay in one place once it hits the ground.

I also have a few others that I just don't throw very often. You name it, it is probably in my among my extras. I can't say enough about those 150 class discs; they are especially good if you happen to have a boy/girl friend that does not throw often and needs a little extra distance, accuracy, etc.

Ryan R. (
Ok, I've gone nuts. I havent been playing long and I am trying just about everything. Had to get a bigger bag so I can throw alot of discs when I play alone. I'll throw 2-3 drivers, and then 2-3 approach, and then 2-3 putters on every hole. I listed my bag about a month ago and now its completely different.

Here goes:

EXP1, 156g, white (beat, pretty understable)
Elite XS, 168g, tiedye (very beat, very understable)
CE Valkyrie, 169g, yellow (pretty new, very long drives)
Z-XS, 165g, yellow (pretty new, very long drives)
Pro Line Leopard, 174g, tiedye
Pro-D Cyclone, 171g, red (new, still getting to know it)
DX Gazelle, 170g, yellow (haven't thrown much)
KC Pro Teebird, 172g, tiedye (was my fave, now understable)
CE Teebird, 170g, yellow (one of my new faves)
KC Pro Eagle, 172g, tiedye (gotta keep the nose DOWN!)
DX Banshee, 172g, yellow (beat, good forehand disc)
Pro-D Reaper, 175g, red (new, overstable, fast, I likes)
CE Firebird, 174g, orange (FAST! MEAN! good in the wind)
DX Firebird, 170g, white (long left turns, big hyzers)
DX Firebird, 167g, blue (big hyzers in light wing)
DX WhippetX, 175g, white (stumped, wayyyy overstable)
KC Roc, 178g, white (awesome, broken in, straight as heck)
Ching Roc, 180g, white (pretty new, slightly overstable)
Z-MRV, 173g, yellow (awesome, slightly worn, midrange hyzers)
Z-MRV, 173g, blue (brand new, unthrown)
CE Spider, 173g, clear blue (approach disc, still learning)
CE Spider, 173g, clear green (same)
XD, 170g, yellow (way understable approach disc)
DX Rhyno, 175g, red (windy putter, drops fast)
DX Aviar, 175g, red (beadless, main putter)
Pro-D Magnet, 171g, yellow (might become my main putter)
Wizard, 160g, blue (kinda light, but straight and effortless)

My master plan is to work with all these and get down to about 12-15 discs that I understand and have a good feel. But for now, DAMN... carrying all these is a chore!

Dustin Coleman (
What do I use...
The essentials-

Driver = Championship Edition Valkyrie_169 (not yet named) smooth ride, straight or big swooping left turn.

Driver = XTRA_169 (Bunni- I'll be playing a pink number today) when I need to go straight into the wind or turn hard left.

Reverse Driver = Beat to hell Ghazelle_173 (not named) when you gotta go the other way, or tomahawk.

Approach = Comet_173 (Gravity- Ain't she a bitch) I know exactly how this disc turns, and I know I can throw it straight if need be, but I prefer to approach with a hard curve.

Putter = Blow Fly_168 (not yet named) I just started using this but the grip, soft rubbery plastic, and the groove are just perfect.

If I had to say one thing, keep the courses clean! I just had a course closed on me up here in Wisconsin cause of people having beer parties on the course. I know its natural to be golfing with a 40 every once in a while, but please throw it away on your way out or take the trash with you. Thanks

In the bag for 2002...

1 - Blue Special Ed. Soft Rhyno.. Just found it in a downed tree. Feels very soft and sticky, holds good in the hand. Gotta hit the course with it a few times to get to know it.

1 - Orange Aviar P&A.. Very very nice disc, my preferance for putter right now..

2 - Red Shark / White Shark.. Found em' both. One I fished the other found in a bush. Best Midrange for an all around gamer, it's the do what you want it to disc. Good Straight flyer.

1 - White Polaris LS.. Found it in the tall grass. Very good quality plastic, can take a beating with minimum to no damage at all. Just like it says, it flys Long and Straight
Also have a fly dye LS I found. Flight Characteristics, Same as above.

1 - Bright Pink Cyclone.. SOLID built disc. Far flyin' with a predictable left turn. Very nice. Can get great distance with it.
Also have a fly dye Cyclone I found in a tree. yet, Very much Straighter than the above mentioned disc.

1 - White Teebird. tossin' 375' all day with an easy and predictable flight pattern. One of the favs.

1- White Melbourne Open 2000 Hotstamp disc. I don't know what it is, I found it while fishin' for my own disc and really do like it alot. IF anyone knows what type of disc this is or may be please post it. It looks absolutely identical to a teebird as far as the rim looks. It is definately an ultra long range driver. Just don't know which one.

2 - Orange Viper(new)/ White Viper (Beat like a mofo).. ROLLERs, or a great control with dependable left fade.
Gotta have 2 of these.

2 - GLO Eagle / Orange Eagle. Rippin' 400' plus with these little toys. BTW If anyone doesn't have a glo disc yet, GO GET ONE!!! Night golf is way fun and it cools off nicely @ night.

1- Yellow Raven.. Very first disk I bought. Love it. Maybe it's the centimental value. Strait to the Chains. Long Distances.

1- White older XL. Just found it. Gotta get used to it can't say much Flies Strait, The Plastic has a really soft and sticky grip. I'm gonna like.

1- The last is my all time fav. Very Very much so needed DISC for anyone in my opinion.. Champion Edition Valkyrie.. I can heave this badboy a solid 450' plus! I throw a heavy disc (174-176) so the wind doesn't effect it too much. Champion Edition Plastic can take a massive beating with no signs of damage at all.. Indestructable.!!

Also in the bag is: Water, towel, Baseball, Lighter, Marker, Papers and clips.. Best of luck to all, and take care of the parks around you.. lata

KC Eagle- tie dye 172g primary driver
Stratus- yellow 171g good for right fade shots off the tee
Shark- blue 173g approach disc from 150 to 225 ft
Ching putter- purple ???g I will probably get an Aviar putter soon
Gateway disc (maybe a putter or approach? it doesn't have the name of the disc on the hot stamp)- black 155g I rarely throw this disc

I just started playing disc golf this summer and I'm already addicted. I'm hoping to play in some tournaments soon and get some new discs. Most of the discs I have now I found on the course.

I forgot to mention the Z series XS that I just found. Not only does it look beautiful, but on the few times I've thrown it I have been very pleasantly surprised. It may very well be the back-hand choice between the valkyrie and the tee bird for me. In other words, when there is wind but I would like to throw back-handed.

omega man (
sorry about the double send (too much wine?)

list of discs:

CE Valkyrie 175g- my first driver and I love it. I am most impressed with it's predictability in a side-throw situation. I have come so close many times to an ace with this one. For distance in a back-hand situation, i rely more upon my lighter-weight tee bird as it is more understable (of course, I am just beginning this sport, so that will very well change for me). Use this heavy weight back-handed into the wind.

Tee Bird 150g-being used to the Valkyrie, I tend to throw this thing way too far to the right. Ironically, I can get better distances, and I have thrown this disc the farthest. When I remember to adjust relative to the heavier Valkyrie, I can surprise myself. Use it only for downwind or no wind. Side throws for me at this weight absolutely do not work at this time.

Hawk 171g- Straight as an arrow to 300 feet. If I have a fairway (which in Tahoe WE DON'T!!!!!) or a tight avenue, this disc is my first and only choice. If I check the tee and see 300 feet or less, this disc is it. Love it, love it, love it.
Use it for shorter mid-range shots and wind. Also for downhill when I don't want to over-shoot.

Stingray ???g- found this one. excellent for my tomahawk throws. trees don't bother me at all with this one. I can curve it over my left shoulder with my right hand and it pancakes perfectly.

panther ???- found this, too. haven't used it enough to know it's characteristics.

SE Rhyno 170g- love the thumbtrack on this one. use it for windy putts and some midrange shots. safe because it will drop if i over-putt.

Magnet 150g- the most like the frisbees I grew up with. newest disc to my lineup, but probably the most familiar to me anyway. I can make it float and that counts when there's no wind.

I had an aviar putter and another rhyno, but left them at a campsite like a dork. they were brand new, too. I hadn't had a chance to use the aviar yet, but it was looking promising to me. I haven't really mastered the discs that i DO have. it's kind of a dichotomy, ironically, when you find a new disc and go "Oh great. Now what do I use for this and that?" Practice, practice, practice. Good thing this sport is so damn fun!

A few new additions to my bag:

Discraft Z-Putt'r, 174 gm, blue -- tends to land flat and not roll. Slighly understable. Beautiful to look at and fun to throw. A nice complement to the

Gateway Wizard, 169 gm, red -- I have the soft version. This is the best putter overall I have ever tried, and I have tried a bunch of them. Predictably overstable, very nice feeling to the hand, and sticks great.

Discraft Storm, 169 gm, violet -- flies straight and fast, an excellent control driver that is sold as a midrange.

I have learned (at least for the moment) to stop worring about drivers and concentrate more on midranges and putters. For dirvers, I carry Elite X and Elite Z XSs ~170 gm), a CE Valk (160 gm), and a DX Valk (149 gm). On windy days I drag along my 175-gm Z-Reaper.

Trusty midranges are a 174-gm Z-MRV and a 172-gm Aurora MS.

I also carry a 175-gm Aero that I use for longer putts/shorter approaches. Love that glide!

Vini (
Gazelle - 168 - I use this one for most of my tee shots. Good distance from it and it will fly staight with enought oomph on it.

Stingray - 175 - just lost this sucker, dammit. Flies straighter than the Gazelle for the most part and usually farther, but I have not been able to find a replacement.

Archangel - 170 - new to my bag, usually use for sidearm throws as it will curve either way depending on the speed you throw it.
Really good driver.

HD Hawk - 173 - usually use this for medium drives, although it too, is new and I don't particularly like the skips on it, but it looks to be mellowing out on that the more I use it.

Viper - 177 - I use this one almost exclusively for tomahawk throws. It rarely rolls back downhill and can skipslide on its face for quite a ways.

Aviar - 174 - Putter and used for putts up to 30-35 feet.

All Drives: Valkerie 172, in a nice orange. It flies good, and it sidearms nicely too.

All Mid-Range: Valkerie 172, in a nice orange. Hooks to the whole like a charm, has some sticking problems, so i just play the role, hehe.

All Putts: Valkerie 172, in a nice orange. It goes straight as long as i throw it straight, and seems to find the chains.

Mike - try an Innova CE Firebird (FX stamp if you can find it).
They're great for into the wind backhand, or for saide arm distance.
Very fast, low cieling disc with lots of glide; just keep the throw flat - if you show much face, the disc slows and dies quickly

Jay Clarke (
Just went on a tear of losing a few after not losing any for months, so bag is in flux with new additions.

Tee-Bird - Mostly straight, mostly far. Good for the tight wooded courses I usually have to play, but easy to overthrow the basket. Have a brand new one and a beat up one that seems to fly straighter but less far.
Roc/KC edition - New addition, but often goes where I want it to. Will use off the tee for holes 200 ft. or less sometimes
Shark - One of my first discs, still use for most everything 60 ft. and in. Also use off tee for the shortest holes. Keep reverting back to use as my putter after frustration with putting game.
Leopard - Was my favorite driver, but lost it recently. Bought new lighter weight one that seems too overstable, so I've reverted to the Tee-Bird and Puma more often.
Puma - another new addition that I've really liked so far. Good for all but the longest holes and those annoying second shots after your first shot just hit the first tree available.
Bomb Ching - found in water hazard while looking for a Shark that never was recovered. Use on the couple of water hazard shots I face when playing away from home courses, and it has yet to not clear the water, so I'm quickly becoming attached.

Also carry a Gazelle that's beat up, an Aviar putter, an extra Shark, and an Aero putter, but I keep trying the putters because I know I should and then getting frustrated and going back to the Shark. Just lost an Eagle that I need to replace - like the way they fly once they're beat up.

175 Lightning #2 Driver: used for long straight shots
175 Roc: used for short hyzers and some mid-range drives

169 Classic Roc: my main approach disc
175 Omega AP: short approaches and turn-over shots, its pretty beat up.
174 Ching Stinger: used for longer turn-over shots
171 Rhyno: approach disc
170 Omega SuperSoft putter: The best in the business

My home course is pretty short compared to alot of courses so thats why I don't have many long range discs. Off topic but after 5 years of on and off play, I finally hit my first ace 6/3/2002. :)

Whoops, I meant to say on my list below...

Whippet Pro 168 -- Used for shots I want to really *hyzer*.


Posted on Wednesday, May 29, 2002 at 19:56
daniel (
Firebird CE 168 -- Just purchased. Will be using it for drives I don't want turning over too much as my Valkyrie can (e.g., extreme downhill drives... hole 27 DLV).

Valkyrie CE 167 -- Used as my primary driver backhand/sidearm/tomahawk. We'll see if I replace it with my new Firebird later this year.

Valkyrie Pro (beat) 169 -- Using it for long hyzers. Working on adding a roller to my game, so I may use this for long rollers too.

Whippet Pro 168 -- Used for shots I want to really anhyzer.

Roc CE/DX 168 -- Used for midrange (straight or slight hyzer/anhyzer) shots. If I need to really hyzer/anhyzer a midrange shot I'll use one of my drivers more often (drivers skip a lot better too which helps get around low tree branches).

Stingray DX (beat) 170 -- Roller disc. As noted, still working on my roller throw.

Aviar DX/JK 169 -- Now my main putter.

I started playing a few years ago with a Stratus for driving and a Shark for everything else. Gradually moved to a XL then a Teebird. Now my drive is finally getting to the point where I can throw more high-performance disks (e.g., Valkyrie/Firebird).

Man, anyone starting these days has it made with the new plastics and discs. Gotta love that CE plastic.

2* JLS 175 -for xtreme long and straight shots / long turnovers.
2* KC Eagle 175 -whatta great disc! Even better when dyed.
2* KC Whippet 175 -for stormy conditions & heavy headwind.
2* Aurora MS 180 -sraight and even straighter... turnovers too.
2* Aviar P&A 175 -THE approacher for me. Flies exactly where I want it to.
2* JK Aviar 175 -putting... sometimes all over again ;)

Ok I find this to be a lethal combo, and I also think the only plastic worth playing is Innova...(if you want to win tournaments and break par haha)
1.Eagle-172-Yellow... Well broken in, flies fast and makes a bee-line straight for the pin. Definitely the best driver ever. Plus, its my best roller, and as far as baseball throws go, I've chucked it over trees and directly in the basket from 125'+

2.Archangel-175-White....Brand new, smoothest flight pattern I've seen in a disc. For big arms, its the best for your $$

3.Stingray-172-Blue...Old, beat up...rolls and good for right dog legs its great.

4.Spider-175-Fluorescent Orange...this replaced my gator, and I am amazed how stable and straight this flies. Just got it, and its already earned its spot in my bag.

5.Aviar Putter-175(?)-Blue...enough said, if it worked for Kem Climo, it sure can work for you. I've drilled crazy putts I never imagined with this bad boy...the only other putter I would consider is the old Softie from the 80's.

6.Valkyrie-175-bright orange...right now, its going really far right for me and not coming back, I dont know its taking a break...but when I'm on, its a great addition to the bag.

7. Gator-175-Orange-Replaced the Shark I had, because I needed something more stable....I actually found this, and loved it ever since. If you don't have one, don't get one....the Spider blows all Midrange away anyway.

8. (I Know I said Innova is the only disc worth it, but I have one thats not!!) Discraft Elite XS....well it held the world distance record until this year, so enough is said about that....when I have a big arm, this distance can only be matched by my new Archangel.

Any questions or comments or suggestions about my bag, feel free to email me....unless you are a solicitor :)

Posted on Saturday, May 04, 2002 at 20:20
CE Firebird 175g F mold-an unfriendly beast that I am still learning
Elite XS 172g-longest disc in my bag-just awesome 450+ft.
Archangel 168g-still dealing with it, nice and long though
Elite X2 174g-control, medium left shots

Dragon 150g-over water, sometimes left to right
HD Hawk 168?-straight or anhyzer mid range
Elite MRX 174g-main mid range,hyzer or straight
Stingray 170g-beaten badly, rollers

Magnet 175g-nice and heavy, my first disc and only putter, I am very faithful to my putter. I can't reccomend this disc enough, especially if you anhyzer putt.

Discraft rules.

Tom Spencer (
CE VALKYRIE 167 GRAMS-YELLOW. Its flight is fast and has great glide to. CE plastic is so durable. I've thrown the disc so many times and it still looks new. I also use it for side-arm throws. It is better for a side-arm than any of my other 13 drivers. On a back hand it hyzers just how I need it to.

Elite MRX 170 GRAMS-Dull Yellow. This disc is awesome from 100 to 250 feet for me. I throw it because I like it's overstablity. I also have a couple of MRV's but I prefer the MRX. It can glide 2 feet above the ground to get under trees and get where it needs to go. If I had to play with one disc this would be it. (that's probally because I lost my KC Roc in a sludgy pond)
'Z' Putter 172 GRAMS-Flourecent Yellow. This disc feels so good in your hand. It doesn't stick to the chains because of the type of plastic it is made from, but that doesn't matter because the way this disc flies you will hit the middle of your basket and drop right in.

I don't need a wack of disc to get around the course.That does not mean I have not tried and have a hundred or more discs.This is what works for me right now.The new super discs are great but I only use them on big wide open courses.I've been playing for 5 years,newbies find a overstable,understable drivers and the same for midrange and stick with them.Putters, it all depends on what feeeels gggoooooddd in your hand.

To Daniel:

Z-Xpress will do that, but doesn't go as far as the other Z discs.

Okay, a question for y'all:
I currently use a Z-XS for long hyzers.... I like the way it's lift and attempts to flatten out keeps it gently turning - very predictable, very long.
I currently use a VERY worn Z-Reaper for my anhyzers.... but it tends to grip with the tiniest bit of angle and roll back a good 20' to 30'left ... making an anhyzer far less useful.

Do y'all know of a good disc that flies like the disccraft z-series that will turn over, go right, and then settle out flat, as opposed to staying turned, gripping in, and rolling back?

I've seen alot of people use the XL for their anhyzers .. would this one do the trick?

Posted on Friday, April 19, 2002 at 10:06
Kevin H (Cedar Rapids, IA) (
172 XL or Cheetah for straight or anhyzer throws
172 X2 for long hook shots
172 Soft Rhyno for approaches and putts

I have used lots of other discs like Ravens, Eagles, Aviars, Milleniums, TeeBirds, Extremes, JLS, Leopards, Whippets, Typhoon, etc. But can usually get along with just three discs and still shoot around pro par on most courses as long as I can turn one over or fly it straight, hook the other one, and then have a straight flying putter with a good grip that is soft enough when it hits the chains and also doesn't roll to far when it misses the chains. I do hyzer alot of approach shots.

Latest update:

New putter -- the Gateway Wizard in soft plastic is now my #1 putt/approach disc. Has a nice feel and a repeatable flight path. I've tried a bunch of putters and this is my favorite overall.

New driver -- Gateway Blaze (166 gm) for upwind shots.

Old standbys -- Innova Archangel (158 gm) for distance where accuracy is not a big issue, Innova CE Valkyrie (160 gm) for narrower fairways, Discraft Z-XS (170 gm) for longer shots into a light wind. Also have a 175-gm Z-Reaper for extreme headwinds. The Z-MRV (174 gm) is my fallback for long/hyzer approach shots, and the Millennium Aurora MS (174 gm) for medium/anhyzer approaches.

Am fooling around with a couple of other Gateway discs but have not yet made up my mind on them.

Well met!

*Denotes discs that are thrown with regularity

*SE Leopard/169g/Dyed/Worn - This is my workhorse, I can throw it straight as nuts.
*CE Firebird/171g/White/New - A new addition... getting a lot of use. Starting to replace my Cyclone for long hyzers.
SE Valkyrie/171g/White/Slightly Worn - Basically replaced by the SE Leopard.
*JLS/149g/White/Worn - My tree disc, completely indestructible. Also great with a tailwind.
Cyclone/169g/Glow/Slightly Worn - I love this disc, but rarely throw it after I got the CE Firebird.
Z-XS/174g/Clear-JBird/Slightly Worn - I love the way this thing flies, but it is impossible to find, even in an open field. Of course, it helps to mention that I am color blind :-)
#1 Flyer/172g/Lime Green/Beat - My original disc. I still throw it when I can't think of anything else.
D-1 Prostyle/172g/White/Worn - I never liked this disc. I preferred my old #1 Driver.
Panther/148g/Tan/Beat - Roller and extreme anhyzer shots.

*Aurora MS/180g/Red/Slightly Worn - This disc goes extremely straight. I use it for long approaches.
*DX Rhyno/175g/Blue/Worn - My favorite putt/approach disc. This thing does it all.
#3 Hyzer/174g/Yellow/Worn - Short hyzer disc, also used as my sidearm hyzer disc.
Sniper/170g/White/Beat - Has dog bite in it. When I can't think of what to throw I'll bring this beast out.
Wham-O 150 class/150g/Blue/New - More as a novelty, came in a box. It's pretty understable and hovers more than flies.

*Rubber Putter/174g/Marble Brown/Worn - Old reliable. Been using this thing since I started.
Blow Fly/174g/Dark Grey/Slightly Worn - Been experimenting with this as of late. Sticks to the chains like no other.

I've been trying to cut down on the amount of discs I throw, so I have only been carrying the ones marked with an asterisk lately.

Hello again from the UK! 2 months into the season and the bag's changed some. Here's a quick update for you:-

The eagle (171g) was almost broken in.... Fine disc, very reliable and a great partner for use with the Teebird. Sadly now resides at the bottom of the River Avon (lost during the Quarry Park Spring fling). Sorry Bud!
Omega Supersoft - also in the Avon. Developed an unfortunate roll which sank it. Real shame - the new Supersofts seem to be much much softer and I prefered the old style ones.....

Z-XL - purple, 169g to act as main driver with the Elite ones. The Z plastic seems softer and more tacky than usual Z discs but no less durable. This beast is very fast, deadly accurate and a superb driver.
Elite X2 - white, 166g, backup for the original one.
KC Teebird - white, 172g for drives with more room and where the Teebird's glide can really come into its own. Finally, I have a Teebird which I can use any day and it won't play up.
Elite (First Run) Xtra - pink, 167g. Manic disc for very windy days, hyzers and general madness. When all else fails, this disc will behave as it always does. Replaces my X2s for steep left turns too (though gentle ones still get an X2).
Soft Magnet - yellow, 172g, backup for original one.
Magnet - duck egg blue, 172g experiment. Flies like the soft ones with a little more control at long range. May replace the Avair in time (so all putters will be almost identical). Mainly trial purposes at the moment.
BDGA mini - new marker! Much harder to lose and it's the BDGA stamp!

Z-Express - high 160's to low 170's. Tried the Elites ones but kept turning them over too much. Tried a Z one and found them much better so thought I'd treat myself to one!
86 Softee - trial putter. The description of their flight sounds great....
86 Softee Supersoft Butter Putter - with a name like that, who can say no? Experimental only probably but you never know....!

That's it for now (and hopefully a long time to come!)....

I really just had to add some new Lightning discs in my bag. I should buy more of them and some others too. I try to keep at least two of each disc with me at tournaments. Itīs not easy to decide bethween so much good discs available nowadays. If the parkinglot or clubhouse is too far from course, I will need to drag a little heavier bag next summer. Maybe itīs time to get a disc-"bagger" ;) or a bag-on-wheels ?

1 * Omega SS 1.16 175 g (5)
1 * U-2 175 g - new -(I need to get at least an other one as soft as this. These sneak nicely in...)

1 * XD 175 g (3)
1 * Rubber Putter 175 g (2)

Approach&short holes
1 * MRV 175 g
1 * Z-MRV 175 g
1 * Apache 170 g (2)
1 * Z-1 (2)
2 * F2 171&175g -new-

1 * X-Reaper 175 g
1 * Z-reaper 175 g
1 * XS 165 g (2)
1 * CE Firebird 175 g

CE Firebirds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SE Rhynos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm debating on what to throw for an unstable driver, but I'm pretty sure I'll settle on a couple of SE Valkyries or Elite X2s. I would throw the CE or Z plastic for that, but those plastics are too hard to break in. We all know a NEW disc is a stable disc. So that wouldn't be a wise choice when I'm driving my CE Firebird/174/broke-in/J-Bird dye 350-400 ft.

I love the speed of the Valkyrie, but I equally love the glide of the X2. The Valkyries have too much of an "S" curve for me, so I'll probably end up with some X2's. The X2's are have more of a DEAD-ON feeling for me personally. Besides, if I wanted an "S" curve, I'd just turn my FireBirds over alittle bit. However, the only Valkyries I've thrown are the CE Plastic. I'm pretty good friends with a retailer here in NE IN, so I'm sure I'll get to try those SE Valkyries out before I decide but...........those X2's.........

Now about those Rhynos. They were hard to get used to, but that plastic sicks in the chains like no other putter. I am convinvced that a SE Rhyno will stick in the chains before any other plastic. Before an APX Swirl, an Aviar Putter, an Omega SS, but what do I know? I only hit about 50% of my 50 footers. But with that percentage, I need all the help I can get. Besides, with a Rhyno I don't even need to carry a Roc. WHAT!?!?!?!?!?!? No Roc!?!?!?!?!?! That's right. I almost got linched for saying that before (being so close to Michigan and all), but I never liked those things anyway. Maybe that's why I'm an AM 1 and not a pro. Oh well my bag is as follows(currently):

CE Firebird/175/NEW/J-Bird dye/long hyzers:)
CE Fire bird/174/BROKE-IN/J-Bird dye/long gentle hyzers:)
DX Firebird/166/WORN/stamped/long "S" shot (hence X2 or Valkyrie)
Elite X2/172/WORN/J-Bird dye/long STRAIGHT shot:)
DX TeeBird/170/WORN/stamped/long gentle turn-over
SE Leopard/170/J-Bird dye/long extreme turn-over/Roller
DX Viper/177/NEW/stamped/Extreme hyzer(The Vipers got more glide, so they'll sail in the hyzer direction alittle more than the FireBirds. Not as fast or as far though).
DX Cobra/179/WORN/stamped/Straight(Got more glide than my Rhynos, so they'll give me an extra 50 foot or so, but REAL unpredictable with the wind).
DX Rhyno/168/NEW/stamped/hyzer putts or short hyzer drives:)
SE Rhyno/170/WORN/stamped/Never leave home without it:)
APX/174/EXTREMELY WORN/Turn-over putts.

Well that's my 2 cents. If you're ever in Fort Wayne, give me an e-mail, and If you're ever in Ft. Wayne littering I my park....I'll be the 5'9" 220lbs guy with a Go-T walking straight for you to kick your fucking ass!!!!!!

Hail Lightning!

U-2, 177grams. Soft and stable. It has a great feel on release. I carry 2 of these.

#3 Slice, 175 grams. Not a power disc. This one needs smooth release. I can do a lot of things with this one and it needs only 75% of my power. Makes nice roller too.

HX-2, 175 grams. Fast, very long and still very easy to throw. Good allround disc.
Z-1, 168 grams. This one will hook! Then I need angel I use this one.

Posted on Monday, March 04, 2002 at 01:42
Karl Nehring (

Innova Valkyrie: I carry three of these: a 158 SE, a 162 CE, and a 171 SE. The CE is the workhorse of the trio, more overstable than the SEs. 158 for straighter shots in the woods, 171 for light headwinds.

Innova Archangel: 154 -- I use this when there is a tailwind and a lot of room for the thing to curve around. Goes right, then left. My longest disc, but not the most accurate.

Innova Leopard -- 174. Use for gentle right turns or to throw straight in the woods.

Millennium JLS -- 149. For tailwinds when I need to to throw straight.

Discraft Z-Reaper: 175 -- When I have to go left or into a headwind. Newest disc in my bag, still experimenting with it. May replace the 171 Valk -- we shall see.

Also carry -- and throw -- a 160 Z-Xpress, but I'm not quite sure why. I love the way it looks and feels, but I can't throw it as far as the Valks or the Archangel. But it is such a pretty blue color, I can't leave it at home.


Discraft Z-MRV: Short drives and long upshots.

Millennium Aurora MS: Anhyzer drives and shorter upshots.


DGA Glow Fly: Most putts. Great feel to the hand.

Millenium Omega SS: Downhill putts.

Innova Aero: Sometimes use for longer putts.

I'm surprised not to see anyone with glo-bees. I can't get enough folf, and hate having to quit just because I can't see my discs in the dark. I use a variety of the different company's makes and models, but I for damn-sure have drivers, mid-ranges, and putters that all glow in the dark so that I can play anytime I feel the need. If there is anyone who loves disc golf, reads this comment, and doesn't have any glo-discs, I strongly recommend them.

Diamond Dave (
Cyclone, XL, Valkyrie - for long range drives. I prefer the Cyclone or XL, but I loose them often; which is when I reach for the Valkyrie.

Cobra, Leopard - they shoot slightly understable for me.

Comet and APX for mid range shots
- for mid range shots I need to turn right, I'll toss a Cobra. For me, it works.

Birdy or APX for puts.

Plus, I always carry a few extra in the trunk for my buds who have no discs.

Daniel Lawrence (
I've used the hell out of all my discs (I've posted here a few times).

I've finally settled on my favorites:

Z-Reaper, First run, Very worn: Long, right curves, or S-Curves (left then right), clear approaches

Z-Reaper Color Max, new(ish): Long Stright, Left Curves, or reverse S Curves (right then left); I love a new reaper; it'll glide really really long with not alot of initial lift; I can get a good 300 feet without the disc coming more than a dozen feet off the ground, which is great for overhanging crap. takes a while to get used to, though, if you throw it up at all, it roswell's real hard to the left ... I've had a disc plant so hard it stayed upright in the mud - normally, though, in true roswell style, it'll just make dirt explode when it dies

JK Aviar X: puts and hard hooks from mid

I throw those for about 90% (or more) of my throws.
I approach with a hammer-throw using the worn reaper most of the time... kinda flips over and hovers, then slides a ways... real dependable. (I've also noticed that ESPECIALLY on sandy courses, the ground tends to bend the disc in closer to the post inside of ten feet when you're sliding gently by, and that most heavily wooded courses will have more exposed roots just past the post to stop the slide)

Other than that, I keep a set of three other discs for JIC:

Shark 150 class, very worn: does anything I want it to between 50 and 200 feet; I use it when I can't think of what else to do ... which is fairly often.

Stingray 172, new(ish): Stright, mediums. It goes stright, only; if i've got a narrow tunnel, i'll use it. I don't know how other people get this disc to turn; I can throw it hyzer/anhyzer, and it just goes a different direction... straight that direction, the only way i can get this disc to turn is by rolling it.

Dragon 150, new: floats. can turn left and right a bit, turns over to roll, too; mostly it just floats, which is why i carry it... reapers are expensive.

Last things I carry, are a towel (of course) and a neon orange lacross ball for retrieving discs ... mostly for retrieving the shark, actually the reapers and the aviar-x seem to shed trees pretty well, but then again, when I'm screwed with loads of trees and something funky i turn to the shark.

I also just got a blacklight flashlight and and aviar and shark glo discs, but i don't carry them, normally ... I'm hoping that discraft follows with the reaper in glo... i want it...

Salutations from yhe rainy isle!
In My bag Baby:-
X-clone - Orange, 169g. Used for driving in hurricanes. Also for comedy value.
XS - Fly dye, 169g. Looks like a jellyfish, flys like a jellyfish! Joking apart this is my work horse driver.
Z-XS - Blue, 169g. Bought this cos my old XS is getting beat. Still getting my head round this one but its getting its use.
SE Teebird - Red, 160g. Only use this on dead calm days cos its to light for me. Only bought one cos all my mates had one!
X-press - White, 169g. My favourite understable driver. Needs replacing cos its had so much use. Long range roller and extreme right turn.
Sentinal - Blue, 170g. The only approach disk when its blowing a nut case.
Roc - Yellow, 173g. Had one of these monkeys in my bag since day one. Old faithfull!
MRV - Blue, 169g. These discs are the don! They just go where you put them!
Shark - White, 165g. Bought this as an alternative to a comet and never looked back. Used for all cheeky, floaty upshots.
2x Stratus -White/yellow, 172g. My first aproach was the yellow one and I loved it. Now been religated to a roller disc cos it looks like its been mauled by an angry badger. White one rocks now.
Stingray - Blue,168g. Turnover/Right handers. I would be lost without my stingray (stingray bada ba da ba da!)
SS Omega -Horrid purple, 175g. Chain sticking skills ago-go.
Aviar - Yellow, 175g. More overstable than my omega. Use this for approach and long putts.
Tank - White, ???g. A new addition to my arsenal. Used when Im in trouble around the green (so used quite alot then!!).
Leaves, mud and other such detritus - Crappy brown, 462g. No practical use, I just never clean my bag out.
Baccy and other such construction materials. (Herbal insperation.)
More leaves.
Flask of Single malt (hopefully different to Jon T's featured elsewhere.

All the gear........No idea!!!!!

Greetings from the UK!
Currently in the bag (weights are from memory!):-
2 elite XLs - both light blue, 168g for most drives. One older and less stable than the other.
Elite X2 - white, 166g, for windy days and left turns.
Teebird - yellow, 170g, for calm days, long glides etc. Yellow is poor colour for winter/autumn.
Archangel - white, 168g, for downhill, right turns and places with lots of room!
Eagle - on loan for breaking in and trial purposes. Very nice though.
2 x Comet - red, 165g for normal use, white, 174g signature version for windy days or for shots when brute force is required. Both excellent discs and they travel on and on.....
Roc - dark red, 174g, shorter range upshots. Good and dependable, probably my main approach disc due to the reduced range.
Sentinel - blue, 172g, left fade upshots or windy days. Great disc.
Stingray - white, 170g, rollers, steep right turns, all the usual stuff.
Stinger - blue, 172g, fills the gap between putters and approach. Nice right turn. Used for odd shots from poor lies.
Avair - white, 168g, for windy days, trick shots or short range brute force through leaves etc.
Soft Magnet - yellow, 172g, main putter, lovely disc.
Omega Supersoft - orange, 170g, backup putter, easier to grip on wet days (and this is the UK so we get quite a few of them).
Innova mini for marker.
Beer towel for drying.
Single malt whisky for moral boosting and liquid talent.
