1. Stable Control Drivers
DX Teebirds 174,175
Star Teebird 175

2. Distance Drivers
ESP Surge 166 (big turnovers that don't even thing about coming back or Hyzer distance in a little tail wind)
Champ Boss 170 (long hyzers, this thing is impressively predictable for a distance disc. I like it alot.)
Wraiths (S-curves with a lot of air under them/situations where I want the "lift out" at the end that my Surge doesn't have)

3. Understable Driver
DX Teebird with some dog tooth marks in it (even after that abuse the Teebird is still disgustingly predictable.)

4. Moderately Overstable Driver
Star Teerex 175 beat
New Teebirds

5. Very Overstable Driver
ESP Predator 174

Mids:
Buzzz's some beat, some new, a few weights (I usually carry three)
X Comet 179 (bombs in a tail wind/shots that are too long for my aviar that do NOT fade)
ESP Wasp 180 (for fade shots that are too touchy with the Buzzz/into head wind instead of the big bead)

Putters:
Aviar P&A new
Aviar P&A beat (I usually put with this one, but I throw it too.)
Star Aviar Driver or KC Pro Aviar or FLX Challenger or D Challenger
(Usually I throw the aviar drivers but in the winter I like the FLX or D plastic better. The Aviar Driver is a little
more overstable than the Challenger but I can throw very similar shots with them. I throw these a lot.)
Wizard - Aviar - Roc - Leopard - PD - Predator - Wraith?

Do you use the TRX for the meathook spot? You might want to throw a firebird or a predator in there. imo the TRX is too fast for that job but will work well on hole 7 at wick into the wind when those wraiths might flip and go buybuy.

I really like the rex x for thumbers. Been getting pretty good accuracy and consistency with it. hit metal or within 5 feet of the pin last 3 times on 9 at X-farms. I do use it for spikes and meathook hyzers but I throw those shots less often. I would like something that would track left as it meathooks rather than fading into the ground.

My buddy looked at my discs and said "that would be one Hell of a bag if this was 1999."

2 DX Banshees
2 Elite Pro XLs
1 M Sentinel MF
2 Tourney Pro Comets
1 9X KC Aviars
1 DX Big Bead Aviar
2 DX Small Bead Aviar P & A

I of course had my revenge on my friend...every time I threw a good shot I broke into the chorus of Prince's "1999." :P

Finally gotten comfortable enough with my bag that I'm willing to immortalize it.

Distance
Star Destroyer (beat straight)
Champ Destroyer (newish)
Champ Monarch

Control
Star Teebird
Star Kite

Mids
CFR Gator
11x KC Roc (new)
DX Roc (seriously beat)
M Wizard (beat perfectly straight)

Putters
Evo Wizard
SS Wizard

I'm auditioning a flat-topped Boss and a Lat64 Riot. Loving both of them, but neither has made it into the rotation yet. The courses I play in the winter are no place for super-long distance discs. The Destroyers aren't seeing much action these days due to this.

Current set-up:

Distance Drivers:
172/175 First Run Champ Orcs - pearly, flat run. This is my go-to distance driver when the wind isn't howling.
171 Star Starfire - overstable distance driver...good into a wind
175 Sirius Orion LS - 1.1 run...mainly used for big turnovers and rollers, but also a good tailwind bomber
2x 174 CE Firebird FX - favorite Firebird EVAR!! Mine is pretty well used, but still very overstable at low speeds. Just added a new one to the bag for stronger winds.
172 Star Maxx - only goes in the bag when the wind is super nasty strong.

Fairway Drivers:
174 CE Teebird - favorite TB...perfectly flat, nicely broken-in, dead straight and very controllable
175 Fly-dye 11x Champ Teebird - has a bit more high-speed-stability than my CE
172 Millennium Polaris LS - slightly understable, great for threading a tight fairway. Can get it on the same lines as my DX Rocs, but with more distance

Mids:
175-178 "Ching" DX Rocs - I keep 3-4 in the bag at all times, in various stages of wear.
176 San Marino Q Sentinel - excellent overstable mid, perfect for shots into a wind or ones that need a strong reliable fade.
175 Champion Whippet-x - technically a fairway driver, but gets used as a VERY overstable mid...like playing disc golf with a lawn dart.

Putters:
175 Soft / Medium Wizard - my go-to putters...I typically use the Medium for all my putts and short drives, and the Soft for approaches.
175 DX XD - this one only goes in the bag occasionally...used for very touchy, soft approaches.

After a few months of keeping them in the bag, I decided to remove the Champ Cobras for the time being...they weren't doing much that my Rocs can't do, and I wanted the space for other discs. Take out the XD and the Max and you're left with the bag I carry 90% of the time.
in the bag: pd2 / destroyer / orion lf / sidewinder /eagle / teebird / rancho roc / fuse / ion / jokeri / wizard

Distance:
2 176 E Blurrs (Haven't even thrown them yet, in there for the next practice session/casual round)

Overstable:
2 174 Z Predators (one getting beat, one new)
174 ESP Predator

Fairway:
2 175 11x Champion Teebrids (one beat, one new)
175 Star Teebird

Midrange:
~177 Z Buzz
~177 ESP Buzz
~177 Z Wasp
~177 ESP Wasp

Putter:
175 Organic Hemp Wiz (Putter)
175 Superglow Wiz (Pretty beat up, straight and anny)
175 Evolution Wiz (Relatively new)


Only thing I am missing is a long distance driver. Tried the OLF, like it but it was just a bit less HSS than I wanted. Looked at the flight chart and saw the Blurr was close but with a bit more HSS so I am gonna give that a shot. Any other recommendations for distance drivers that are not in the Destroyet/Wraith/Boss super wide rimmed family?

I'd recommend a Starfire-X, either the Star, or if you get Champ make sure it is not one that came out when the mold was produced incorrectly (per Dave D). Keep in mind that a Blurr afaik has a rim as wide as a Destroyer. The SF-X has a rim a little wider than an OLF but is HSS from my experience.
