I really only need one, but sometimes I carry two (or three if I just really want to throw multiple shots). My favorite is a current run 167g Champ. Having thrown a PD or two, I can attest that a (worn) PD: turns later, fades less than a Valkyrie. Also, I think you might experience some overlap between the Leopard and the Buzzz since the Buzzz is so long.
Regardless, I think you'll find success if you stick with this idea. It has helped my game immensely.

Say for instance I need to drive uphill or want to do a little hyzer flip around a tree. Would you say a Leo is worth having in those situations?
I might hang on to my seasoned P PD and compare it to a Star Valk when I get it.

I have a fairly new 172 Star Roadrunner that I might try to use exclusively for max D until I can work up enough power to control a Valkyrie - right now on a flat throw I can get it around 350', but it doesn't seem to fly as understable as I would expect.
Also, I'm trying to think of what combinations of weight and plastic to get for Eagle-X's. Any suggestions? I currently have a 173 Star and a 167 DX, which is starting to season pretty fast.
Anyway, that leaves me with this:
172 Star Roadrunner - distance
175 CFR C PD - very overstable
173 Star EX - overstable
176 DX EX - stable control
165-168 Star Leopard - understable
What I don't like about this is the fact that my DX EX will become flippy and leave me without a stable control driver. I'm not so sure I want to rely on a rotation of DX EX's for that slot. And while my 173 Star might fit that role sometime in the future, right now it shows no signs of high speed turn. I feel like there will be a gap in there, which is why I am thinking about adding a lighter Star EX and Star Leopard to fit the last two roles.
As for mids, I feel really comfortable with my Buzzz's right now - 178 SS and a 178 Z. I have a 180 Hornet and 170 Opto Fuse on each side of them. The low-profile grip is really helping me with consistency. I'll hang on to this lineup for a while now.
Lastly, putters...nothing to change here. Wizards and Magic.

Mason65 wrote:The Star RR is a good distance disc for your power level, just know when (not) to throw it. Most of the time having control of your shot (throwing the Eagle) is more important than that extra 10% of distance.
Mason65 wrote:As for the mids, why the Fuse? I realize you're trying to cut down on speed (very commendable) and not necessarily molds, but 4 different mid molds seems a bit excessive.
