Ricky Wysocki In the Bag 2023

Updated: Feb 16, 2023

Dynamic Discs recently released a video on their YouTube page that shows team member front man Ricky Wysocki walking, talking, and throwing us through his bag of discs for the 2023 Tour season.


While his bag can and will probably ultimately change, especially considering he was at one point holding a blurred out disc that was revealed in a recent Eric McCabe video to be a Sockibomb Raider prototype, it's always fun for me (and us) to watch these videos and get into the mind of the pro players.

We got the chance to meet Ricky Wysocki at the Seekr Showcase event in Kansas City!



I personally enjoy seeing how they're using specific discs and why they're choosing to put them in their bags.


But there's some value in this too as we gain valuable knowledge from those who are dominating the sport in every phase of the game.


In many instances, the reasons why and how aren't relevant to me and my game, but it does often allow me to reflect on my own bag and reexamine the discs I'm bagging and why I'm bagging them.


So without further ado, let's answer the question of,


What is in Ricky Wysocki’s Bag?


If you want any more info on these discs or to shop them for yourself and your bag, simply click on any of the names or pictures to check them out at Infinite Discs!



Putters

Up first are his putt and approach discs!


Ricky's go to putter ever since he switched back over to Dynamic Discs has been the Dagger by Latitude 64.


With a glide rating of 5, yea can see why Ricky is so deadly from Circle 2 and beyond as the natural spin he places on his putts works very well in conjunction with this feature.


The beaded putter also features a fade of 1 which allows for a nice consistent finish from all ranges, while it’s speed of 2 works great with the deeper rim to prevent long comeback putts on misses.

Approach Discs

Next up, we stay in the putter category, but move from his putting putter, to his many throwing and approach putters, a true staple of his bag!


Dynamic Discs Emac Judge

Flight Ratings: 2, 4, 0, 1


Starting with the most stable, we take a look at the Emac Judge.


The Emac Judge is actually my go to putting putter, but Ricky bags one to use in approach shots where he needs a moderate amount of glide, paired with an extremely straight flight path.


The speed of 2 helps manage any potential for this disc flying past the basket and creating a longer putt than desired, and the fade of 1 makes this disc just torque resistant enough to allow for that nice and straight flight the entire length of the throw.

Next up is the Westside Discs Harp!


Wysocki states that he uses the Harp for scramble style approach shots, both forehand and backhand, where he doesn’t need as much overstability as the next disc on our list, the Sockibomb Slammer.


He prefers a Harp that has been beat in so that it is much straighter, with less fade over a longer distance down field than a brand new Harp is right out of the box.


He also likes that it has more glide than the Slammer to reach longer distances with effortless touch.

The last Putt & Approach disc that Ricky bags is also his favorite disc, the Sockibomb Slammer!


When Ricky rejoined Dynamic Discs for the 2022 season, the Slammer was one of the first discs redesigned for the Sockibomb line-up.


In doing so, they took the popular Slammer and made it less glide-y with more fade which resulted in a disc that Ricky uses on nearly every single hole.


Wysocki states that upshot’s are crucial for success, and the Sockibomb Slammer provides him with the ideal amount of distance and angle control he needs to be extremely successful and consistent for all upshot situations.


And based on his track record of his success, I’d say that it’s hard to argue with his success and how well he does with the Sockibomb Slammer, so check it out!

Mid-Ranges

Moving through the bag, we arrive at the mid-range section!


And up first is the,


Flight Ratings: 5, 3, 0, 4


As of writing this article, the Supreme Fugitive is not quite available for purchase, but I expect it to fly off the shelves as soon as it does.


Ricky states that he loves this version of the Fugitive for big flex lines on mid-range shots and notes that it is very torque resistant, something a big armed thrower like himself needs to prevent turnover.


Trust this disc to be used for both forehand and backhand shots alike for not just flex lines, but also stout head winds or situations that require a lot of fade.

Or by


Flight Ratings: 5, 5, 0, 2


Moving from very beefy to just moderately beefy and we have the Trust by Latitude 64.


The Trust is much more of a straight flyer than the Supreme Fugitive but slower arms will still notice the fade of 2 that this discs is rated for.


Ricky says that he uses the Trust when a straighter shot is needed, and notes that he is also able to use it for hyzer flips which gives this disc some great versatility if you have the power for it.

Last but not least of the mid-range slot is the Latitude 64 Compass!


The Compass is nearly identical to the previous disc we discuss, the Trust, with the only notable difference between the two is that the Compass is rated with a fade of 1 vs the Trust’s 2.


For average players, this means that the Compass will fly extremely straight unless presented with a headwind or if it is thrown with too much anyhyzer.


Ricky bags the Compass for hyzer flips, or when he is throwing a mid-range shot with a strong tailwind that would create too much fade for the Fugitive and Trust.

Fairway Drivers

We now enter the driver portion of the bag, and start things off with the fairway/control drivers!


Up first in this section is a disc that Ricky relies on frequently during his rounds on tour, and that disc is the,


Flight Ratings: 9, 3, 0.5, 4


The Felon is a beefy, overstable mold from Dynamic Discs and is comparable to many other discs in this slot from other manufacturers, notably the Captain’s Raptor from Discraft and the Firebird from Innova.


As mentioned, the Felon is a workhorse for Ricky‘s bag and he is frequently reaching for it in a variety of situation.


It has more aggressive fade than other fairway drivers in his bag, which is very reliable for both forehands and backhands and under a variety of wind and weather conditions.


Ricky bags this disc in multiple plastics to achieve subtle differences in stability, but they will be notably overstable for the average player.


If this is a slot you need to fill in your bag, consider the Felon!

Flight Ratings: 7, 4, 0, 2.5


When he doesn’t need the overstability offered by the Felon, Ricky discs down to a slower fairway driver, the Dynamic Discs Evader..


While the Evader has less fade than the Felon, this is desired by Rick in situations he wants a straighter finish than what the Felon will offer.


He previously bagged the Latitude 64 Explorer for this slot, but has since switched to the Evader for slightly more fade, but less glide at a rating of 4. A rating that is still higher than the Felon’s glide of 3.


If you’re looking for a straight finish with more glide, but still a decent amount of stability for varying wind conditions, then consider the Evader!

The sole understable disc in the bag, Ricky simply uses his Vandal for roller style shots.


I personally bag a Vandal as well, but enjoy throwing it for hyzer flips on up hill shots where I can trust the stability to flip this disc to flat and not fade too much back to the left.


This is a situation where a Pro uses a disc differently than an Amateur, but you can still find a purpose for it that works for your style of play.

The last of the fairway drivers, the Criminal is a disc that Ricky uses as a hybrid between Distance Driver and Fairway Driver.


The Criminal is classified as a distance driver by Dynamic Discs but is only the slower side with a speed of 10. Don’t let this fool you however as the Criminal is quite beefy with a turn of 1 and a fade of 4!


Ricky describes the Criminal as having higher glide than it’s ratings indicate, and he uses it when he needs the distance between a Felon and one of his bagged Distance Drivers, the Rive, which we’ll take a look at soon.


If you're looking for one of the more overstable drivers on the market, the Criminal will be your disc.

Distance Drivers

Last but not least are the distance drivers!


We're not going to go into too much detail of the distance drivers that Ricky's bag primarily because they're very similar in many different ways and he seems to bag and throw them on a very situational basis.


The instance, the Enforcer is the most overstable of the 3 molds in his bag, but all 3 discs are considered overstable, so he'd likely choose it in a situation where there is a headwind for instance.


Whereas the Raider may be used when he needs a little bit more of a flip to flat shot instead of a flex shot.

Flight Ratings: 13, 5, -0.5, 3


Starting off with the Raider, it is the most stable of the bunch, with flight numbers that are similar to popular molds like the Destroyer and the DD3.


The Raider will differ from those traditional 12, 5, -1, 3 flight numbers for those discs in that it is slightly faster with just a little less turn.


That being said, it will still bomb if you have the power to throw it for a full flight.

Getting more overstable and we have the Rive, a disc very similar to the Raider, but with 0 turn and slight increase in fade.


This driver will be less susceptible to turning over unintentionally and will be very useful for big flex shots for max distance.

Flight Ratings: 12, 4, 0.5, 4


Last but not least of this in the bag article is the beefy Enforcer.


As mentioned, the Enforcer is the most overstable distance driver option Ricky bags and he is likely using this disc for full flex shots, or for shots that he needs a hard, fading finish.


This disc will hardly ever turnover, and will be extremely wind resistant, even for big time power throwers.
