Distance Drivers
175 Star Firebird (new) - super stable
167 Star Firebird - overstable
172 DX Firebird (thrashed) - stable

170 ESP Surge (flat and new) - overstable
170 ESP Surge (domey and new) - stable
172 ESP Surge (domey) - understable

172 SE Valkyrie (new) - stable
175 JK Pro Valkyrie - slightly understable
167 Star Valkyrie - really understable

Fairway Drivers
172 Star Eagle-X - stable
168 Star Eagle-X (beat) - super straight

Utility Disc
167 Z Flash - Aero Pod installed for night golf(get it? it's a Flash)

Mids
180 DX Roc (new) - overstable
180 DX Roc - stable
170 DX Roc (beat) - understable
173-178 Crystal Z Buzzz (new) - super straight

Putters
175 E Wizard (new and gummy) - drives
175 E Wizard (beat) - approaches
175 SS Wizard (beat) - putts

The difference between "put" and "putt" is that "put" means to place a thing where you want it, and "putt" means a failed attempt to do the same thing.

I don't miss putts, I just have a lot of really short approach shots.

Putters: good

Mids: buzzzes OR rocs

Fairway: get an understable EX (DX?)

Distance:
stick with the Firebirds and drop the force, its not needed, even if a FB isnt long enough sometimes, you shouldnt sacrifice control by tossing a Force

id pick either the surges or valks for distance, they kinda overlap, you could use a beat version of either one for a roller

id also drop the Pulse and use FB's for overheads

Corey's saying the same thing you'll get from everyone on here, and I pretty much agree. Drop the random Force. I haven't thrown Surge's enough to know how much they overlap with Valks, but you've got a lot of drivers in that bag, and I suspect it will be hard to learn them all well enough to know what to use when -- especially with the Eagles in there as well. I'd definitely drop the Pulse as well -- the Firebird is a better overhand disc IMHO. As for the midrange spot, however, I have no problem with a mix of Buzzes and Rocs -- that's what I've got in my bag, and it's worked out well.

However, I would recommend simplifying by taking a driver mold out if for no other reason than 22 discs is a lot to carry around. If you are at a stage in your game where you are asking for bag advice on these boards, then you definitely don't need 22 discs weighing you down and confusing your shot selection. I'd be realistic and challenge you to pull at least six discs out of your bag -- I'll bet it won't cost you a single stroke, and will more likely improve your game.

Looking better, I think you could probably get away with having both Surges and Valks if you can distinguish when you use each in different situations

Yeah, I use the Surges and Valks for completely different shots, I've never really had trouble deciding between them before. Also, what would you recommend as a good roller?
