WHAT'S IN MY BAG????
MY bag sort of changes all the time. IT has to do with the wind or on what kind of course I play.YOU don't see me having a bunch of Teerex's in my bag on a windless sunny day.....
BUT these discs make my bag most of the time;
AVIAR PUTTER- I have 3 of them.One Star for approaches,1 DX but he is different than any aviar putter I have ever seen... kinda a mix between a kc and normal one + a KC Pro 12x
STINGRAY- A heavy Champion one and sometimes a beat up DX one
ROC- a Star Ontario and a "normal" Star one+ a Champion or DX Roc
LEOPARD- 1 Special Edition for rollers and 1 Pro for controlled fairway shots
ROADRUNNER- 1 Star + 1 Champion
SIDEWINDER-1 Star
STARFIRE- I only like the Champion ones(they don't beat up as fast as Pro plastic
WRAITH- 1 star and 1 pro.
TEEREX-1 Star one-170 g.
FIREBIRD- this is or an KC Pro one(pro plastic) or an CE Firebird X
MONSTER- Champion or Star but only when it is real windy
---------------------------------------
I used to play also with Wraiths but they all fly different when new and I need control. I got that with the Teerex.... BUT being a libra and all....now I got 2 wraiths in my bag again, a star and a pro. I am not really sure what the different is between the two but they do go freaking far.

I do have a couple Destroyers as back up discs but eventhou these go further than my Wraiths or any disc for that matter, I still have sometimes problems controlling this disc(small hands).
But Good Sidearm goto disc...


Haven't tried the Boss yet ..... I have now and it goes even further than a Destroyer but same problemm.Too big of a rim!

Most discs are top weights but with some of the overstable ones, I sometimes go lighter.


Nice all those new discs but no good for me. I rather play with the old stuff anyway. It always worked in the past. And my strenght is not distance but control.

You like wind? I just had a tournament in 60mph....

Here in Holland there is a lot of wind.Lately it has been storming.That is never a big deal...I am kinda used to it.

Sometimes we go to our course(Roel Langerak,Rotterdam) to have some FUN when the wind is blowing hard.Extreme distance is always fun or when you putt and you miss and your disc lands 60 feet further.This course is kinda easy for a weathered player but when it blows,+8 is not uncommon.



In Holland we don't have that many basket courses but we always play on the… Continue

Yo Tuur,
A buddy of mine and I will be playing the Dutch Open this year, and I'm thinking of driving up on the 14th to take a look at the park and see if we can figure out the course and practice. How far away are you from the course and/or do you know anyone who knows the course that lives close by. A lunch of Falafel or Schwarma (or other) would be in the deal for any scout willing to walk around with us and throw plastic.
Cheers,
Longmire (the American dude who was getting on your nerves at DO 2006) :-)
p.s. have you heard from Thomas (from California), he seems to have slipped off the globe?
