In The Bag

Drivers

Westside Discs VIP Air Sorcerer

Lots of glide, fades back minimally at the end, max distance.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Air Trespass

This is my go-to forehand driver. I use it for forehand hyzers, forehand flex shots, and straight backhands.

Latitude 64 Opto Air Flow

It's great for controlled forehand and backhand shots with reliable fade at the end.

Dynamic Discs Lucid Air Felon

It's reliably overstable. The Felon is great for forehand and backhand hyzers and skip shots.

Westside Discs Tournament Burst Stag

Straight, controlled backhand throws.

Latitude 64 Gold River

Used mainly for anhyzer forehands and backhands that need lots of glide.

Midrange

Dynamic Discs Prime Justice

Extremely overstable and reliable in the wind. In addition to hyzers, I also use it for short rollers to get out of trouble. The Prime plastic is easy to grip in all weather conditions.

Dynamic Discs Lucid-X Verdict

It's overstable and reliable. I use it for forehand, backhand, and pancake shots.

Westside Discs VIP Gatekeeper

It flies straight and will hold its line. I love this disc.

Westside Discs VIP Tursas

A reliably understable disc. It's helpful for getting out of tricky situations. I throw it on turnover backhand and forehand shots.

Putters

Westside Discs BT Soft Harp

Reliably overstable. This disc is used for forehand, backhand, and pancake upshots with minimal skip. Putting in windy conditions.

Latitude 64 Zero Medium Sunburn Splatter Keystone EK64 Run

Straight or turnover upshots. Lands softly with minimal ground play.

Westside Discs BT Soft Swan 2

Main putter. Goes straight into the chains.
