How far do you throw? Because if you throw over 350' than your Orcs are stable and your Destroyers are moderately overstable. I suggest that you get a more overstable disc than the Teerex or the Destroyer, like a Firebird or a Predator. Other than that it looks good.

Here's what I think. Pick one distance driver mold. Go with a 172-175 dx valk. Way longer than champ valks.

Get a pair of fairway drivers that compliment each other. probably base plastic.

A driver you can throw into any headwind. probably a pred. 25+

Keep an orc for moderate headwinds. 15-25

A disc that's hyper-overstable at low speeds. Function: escape shots & skips. Champ whippet or champ banshee, maybe a gateway demon.

Go lighter on rocs. Low 170s.

i throw around 280'. i was thinking about a firebird for extreme overstable. before i stopped i was close to breaking 300 consistently. but since i stopped for awhile i need to rebuild my form.

I'd replace those drivers in the 17xg range with ones in the low to mid 16x range until you're throwing over 350' whenever you want.

The teebirds are so overstable you could use those as wind drivers right now. Pick up a 150g or 160g to throw for control. Or a gazelle.

A 160-164g valk might work for you - at 167+ they will probably be too overstable to fly properly without OAT or anhyzer release.

The mids & putters are fine, but if you want more distance from the mids, you could add a lighter one to get some glide and/or some slight turnover when you want your best distance from them.

I'd drop the destroyers - at 300', you won't have the arm speed unless you're throwing sidearm (and going further).

The teerex is probably super overstable too, but I'd go with a firebird or predator in the upper 16x range.
