I'm not fully clear on what you mean by "pro stable", but I'd bet you could use just 1 Firebird to cover all your overstable needs...maybe try a 170g, since that weight's right in the middle of the other 2. If you're not looking to condense anymore, I'd say it's already a pretty solid set-up.

Anything in particular you want to change that we could give feedback on?

Just seeing if anyone saw any holes or overlaps that I had missed. pro-stable/moderately overstable whatever you wanna call it. It's more usable and less piggy compared to the star.

And kern, i wasn't joking about the breeze... as soon as they came out we were seeing kids at the course by my house with proto boss's just dying. It was partially amusing. The PIAS near the course was telling people that it was the longest driver you could buy... good times.

I know you weren't joking. I know exactly what you were talking about as a matter of fact. At least you can chalk that up to the players being new. I know players on my local courses that throw bosses, destroyers, xcals, etc. on holes that I usually throw rocs at. Most of their bags consist of putters and long distance drivers. Then they complain about throwing inconsistent.

haha reminds me of this guy i play with.
We have a standing game each week on tuesdays me, him and another guy. Well me and the other guy are working on our game and i have tried telling them both to come here or pass info along that i know to them. Well the other guy listens to me. He and I have progressed over the last 4-5 months where as the first guy only carrys a boss, xcal, destroyer, a valk (his midrange/upshot disc) and a putter and hasen't. Before it was always the three of us close in score but now me and the guy who listens stay close to each other and are beating him by 5+ strokes consistantly.

I saw a guy at a local pitch and putt (I pull out an eagle on one hole, everything else is buzzz/wasp/wiz) and he shoots every shot out of the nine with a boss, I do at least 4 with a putter. Then he misses almost every putt from outside 15 feet. And he gives people tips on driving... oh lord...

Almost my bag exactly, so yeah, I like. If you were to exchange Firebirds and your mids for Preds and Rocs, and the RR for a Valk, then we'd have a perfect match.

Notice you have the Eagles in star and the Orcs in champ. That is how I've been gravitating lately also.

Also notice some lighter drivers in there. I just got a 167g Champ Orc in a trade recently. First time throwing an Orc that isn't in the 170s. It's great, starting to become the Orc I reach for most often.

If you haven't tried medium wizards for driving I bet you'd like them.

The softs I have are fairly slick and stiff, maybe close to a medium. I got a bunch in the MS 5 dollar deal a while back.

And yes sir, 60's Orc are MONEY. Seriously. I have em all in the 60's and all in pink (nine in my collection). The max weights are pretty nice as well, but only on certain lines and they break in alot differently, IMO.
