What's in your 6 bag tournament arsenal?
« on: May 23, 2019, 11:54:46 AM »
Was packing my bag last night and trying to decide which 6 to bring to an event.  Synthetic house, modern lane machine with the morning block on the THS and afternoon for 5 games on an unannounced sport pattern.  What would you bring to cover yourself for whatever might be laid down and why?  Here was my bag:

Tenacity Grit - rolly/even to control crisp back ends
Ludicrous Solid - can handle oil but has a but more kick down the lane
Vapor Zone - longer/sharper for when my feet get left
Cutting Edge Hybrid - benchmark, rolly shape
Cutting Edge Solid - cleaner, sharper for burn
Spare - I just feel more confident shooting straight at my spares with plastic

Absolute Nirvana
Kingpin Gold
Creed
Melee Cross
Tag Cannon
Spare

It's exactly what I took for Nationals as well. Creed has become my favorite asymmetric I've thrown, I can use it on almost anything but the extremes. I'm gonna experiment with 14lb this summer and if it goes well, the Creed series is #1 on my list to rebuild with

Making some arsenal changes currently. Looks like:
Verdict, Phaze 2, Respect, Match Up Black Pearl, Ice as of now. Fused doesn't really fit, and Eon I haven't thrown. I see a Hy-Road Pearl completing the tournament bag soon since I'm lacking cleaner and firm downlane from anything not asymmetric.
League: Match Up Black #2
Testing: Match Up Black #3, Destiny, Show Off
Next: Purple Hammer #3

PhysiX
Hyroad X
Match-up Hybrid
After Dark Pearl

Med to strong pearl to be named Later (looking at several options, including the katana Dragon, Tactical ops and Astro physix)

Depending on the tournament Sure Lock if I know there is oil; if I know it will be medium or less (or short) my OG Hy Road

Method solid
Method hybrid
Fearless
Cutting Edge Pearl
Quantum Bias Pearl
Groove urethane (polished) spare ball

If the lanes get real tricky the Magnitude .035 solid just tells me what's out there. It reads friction, but doesn't go crazy.
