The speed gap is going to bother you at some point, especially if you have a couple bad rounds and aren't hitting the shots you want at that range.
So far this year I have been sticking to a minimalist philosophy of carrying a few molds that serve a multitude of functions across different conditions. So far these few discs have been all I've needed in sun, rain, wind, and snow.
2-173g medium-stiffness wizards (this is a super-stable putter that doubles as a short midrange from about 250' and in. I have two basically for practicing my missed shots)
1-173g (although marked 174g) champion panther (fast, understable, medium to long midrange. I use it for medium range anhyzers as well as shorter, trick shots out of the rough as it will hold a TIGHT anhyzer to the ground)
1-176g X-Wasp (Fast, overstable at low speeds, stable at high speeds, long-range midrange. This is my go to midrange out in the open for straight and hyzer lines)
1-176g (although marked 175) Z-Buzz (Very fast, stable, long-range midrange. I'm not sure this disc is different enough from the X-Wasp to justify itself, but I like to keep the wasp overstable so this is my go to midrange in the trees. At the same weight it does not hurt my consistency with the wasp too much. It does not fly quite as far as the wasp, but is better for shots in the 250'-285' range that I want to finish straight. It is also better for anhyzer shots and I defininely prefer it as a forehand midrange. Basically it is like a broken in X-Wasp.)
3-173g (although marked 172g) Orcs (Moderately overstable distance driver. I use this disc off the tee as often as possible for relatively open shots that play 330' and beyond, or shorter hyzer all-the-way shots. I also like it for big, over-the-top hyzers that I'm not powerful enough to use a more overstable disc for. For me, 173g is a great all around weight. I have three basically for practice, although one is markedly more overstable than the others and is better in situations where extra overstability is useful.
1-173g (marked 172) Viking. (Stable, control/distance driver. I use this disc for fairways that are too tight for my Orc because I can really control the amount of high speed turn I get varying from very a very gradual with almost no fade to a full distance anhyzer)
1-173g (marked 171) CFR Glow Banshee (Fast and overstable distance driver. This is a great all around overstable driver for backhand, fore hand, and especially thumbers. It is a great disc for a windy day as it has great resistance to high speed turn while not finishing nearly as left as other overstable drivers. I use this one primarily for backhand and sky thumbers over trees.)
1-174g (marked 170g!) Champion Banshee (This disc is quite a bit more overstable than my cfr banshee and is my main thumber disc as well as my go to disc on days where the wind is just absurd. It is also a good forehand roller)
