Looks good to me. A DX or Champ Teebird, while slower, will fly similar lines to a beat-to-straight X Pred, so they would overlap.

When life gives you lemons, stick them in the freezer for a few hours, then throw them back, 'cause they're like rocks, man.

what's wrong with plastic? that's what I want to know :P

Seriously though...that's pretty minimal. It looks like you probably do a lot of driving with the putters.

For my use, the predator has a hard fade at the end - vs a longer fade for the teebird. If you can throw the teebird in that slot, it might prove more useful being able to throw a long fade/hyzer. I believe the champ is more overstable than the dx versions. As for the Rocs, if you like 'em, no reason to not throw it if it works. Does the KC do a great anhyzer/turnover? If not, then the comet might be a better companion since I know it will.

I admire the simplicity of the bag. Couldn't do it myself.

No understable drivers or midrange discs at all? Do you throw backhand, forehand, both?
Even if you throw both really well, how do you throw long flip up hyzers, tail-wind shots, up hill, etc?

I'll second needing at least something flippy in there... This could be an ultra trashed X pred, but I haven't ever seen one that doesn't have any fade so I dunno just how trashed that'd have to be... An ESP XL is a good disc for this slot.
I threw Wizards before they were cool.

Have you tried out a star TL? I've always considered it one of my most reliable drivers. It will overlap a little less with your x pred and makes for a sweet anhyzer. Also, I can't help recommending a beat dx roc for an understable mid (I'm suprised nobody's said that yet).
