Keep in mind, as much as you throw into a headwind, you have to throw something into a tailwind too!

1 Wizard
2 Rocs (1 flippy, one stable)
2 Eagles (1 flippy, one stable)
1 teebird (dx for D)
2 Preds (1 new, one totally thrashed, which means straight)

Oh wait, that's pretty much everything in my bag right now! Perhaps it has something to do with playing 5 rounds at the wide open in HOWLING WIND, and only throwing these discs.

Toss up is between the thrashed pred and a nice Star/Champ Teebird for moderate wind. I watched E-Mac throw a beat-up Pred on a Rope last week, so I'll go with that :).

2 Wizards -- one SSS that won't roll/bounce or fly away, one stiff for upwind
2 Firebirds -- one max weight and one low 160s -- these work upwind, downwind, hyzer, anhyzer, flick, backhand, etc...
1 CE Rhyno for putts and trick shots
1 CE Classic Roc for downwind drives and other trick shots (Those things SAIL)
2 Teebirds -- one max weight Champ Teebird, because they are dead level upwind when you throw them right; one mid-160s beat KC Teebird for downwind shots that ride the wind forever.
Flick long and prosper.

1 Soft APX
1 FLX Buzzz
1 Doss Surge
1 ESP Avenger
1 Tsunami

That's about all that I pull out to throw in tourneys, and other than maybe adding a Z Wasp there's nothing else I've been left wanting for on windy days (and it took sustained 30mph with gusts up to 45-50mph for me to wish I had a wasp).

I nominate a one disc bag of a broken in Z Predator :-) Seriously you can putt with it. You're probably just gonna putt more often with it :-)

Edit: You just need to be athletic and shape lines in more creative ways with it. How about one disc one throw round like with spike hyzers on every throw.
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

I like it! My personal choice might include replacing the Teebird with something faster though, like a beat up SOLF.

I figured that's what the thrashed Pred was for. I might take out the Teebird and the thrashed Pred and have two OLFs, a Champ and DX Starfire-X or a Z Avenger and X Avenger. If I did that it would be very similar to the bag I carry anyway just with fewer of each disc.
