How far can you throw your putter on flat ground?

Overall a good setup, couple of things come to mind....

First being the obvious, why both Buzzz'es and Rocs?

Second being your long drivers. The Wraith/Qolf/Orc combo works for now, but eventually your wraith will start flying like your Qolf, and your Qolf will start flying like your Orc, etc. When this starts to happen and you need to replace one or more of them, I would work towards minimalizing and choosing just one of these molds, carrying 2-3 of them in various stages of wear. For example a new wraith, broken in wraith and beat up wraith would serve the same purpose as your current set up, but the advantage being its all the same mold. The OLF or Orc would work just as well, just used the wraith as an example.

Do you throw Buzzzes as the understable mid and Rocs for overstable to stable depending on beatness or even a Buzzz (newish) for absolutely straight shots? If so wait until a Roc beats in to to straight or even understable and you can take more newer and more stable Rocs and leave the Buzzz at home.

I usually just mix and match at whim. The only midrange that's a staple is my flippy ching roc. I haven't found anything else that can hold a better turnover line. Most of the time, I'll care my mini with just a esp buzzz and a flippy roc. If I carry my carolina, I'll bring several rocs. I've though of getting a champ gator, champ shark, q sentinel or z wasp for my overstable needs as my dx rocs' are great to start with but beat in a little too fast. Not a big fan of KC rocs and I don't want to throw my champ rocs.

I typically use the Qolf/Orc combo unless I'm playing the one local course that is long and wide open. I'm pretty much just using what I have laying around, don't have the funds to buy anything right now. Thanks for the advice.
