qms / shark / buzz are all pretty similar, so are PLS and JLS from what I know about them. Do you have specific shots for each of these?

The shark is my overstable qms. Same speed and flight but it fades where the qms finishes straight. The buzzz is much faster and longer than the qms and shark.

The Polaris has a different flight than the qj in quantum plastic. More fade with the same speed disc. I use the qj for straight shots and the Polaris for line shaping.

to be honest with you, i think that you could use the buzzz for anything that a shark or qms could do, but that's just me...

The buzzz is to fast of a disc to work the same shots I get with the qms and shark. I use the buzzz mostly for tee shots and longer second shots. I use the qms for shorter straight and turnover shots that the buzzz would have troubles blowing by. The shark is for hyzer shots and stuff I need to "s". The shark is the same speed as the qms and has more fade with the same general flight. It works for me and I have been getting better at hitting my lines this way. If I wanted to minimalize it further it would be just the qms and shark. To be honest, for me the buzzz overlaps the QJLS more than anything.

Trying a new bag to help me with practicing more. Keeping multiples of each disc to get more comfortable with backups as well as starting lineups. When I play rounds I may remove the discs that are underlined.

174 Evo HPP Wiz - Upshots and drives that will stay overstable
170 ESP Zone - Overstable workhorse putter and forehands
175 CE QMS - Main mid
174 CE QMS - Main mid (Backup I am beating in)
180 QMS - Hazard shot midrange
179 Pro Shark - Beefier midrange
168 DX Eagle X - Beat flippy fairway
170 DX Eagle X - Newer fairway
170 Star Eagle X - Straight fairway
172 EXP1 - Overstable fairway
164 SOLF - Straight distance
164 QOLF - Overstable distance
171 MOLF - Straight distance

It's weird looking at your bag and actually knowing what you are throwing. I barely know the difference between an OLF and a QMS so normally your bag is really confusing. But I know Innova molds.

That's one of the reasons I like to throw Millennium plastic. There are only a small handful of local players that can get a wind read off of me. I have a pretty good knowledge of all discs and can get a good read off of anyone's throw. This comes in real handy during tourneys and leagues.

Or you could wipe all your stamps off and just not answer their questions when they ask what you throw...

Not gonna lie, sometimes it's nice to be second or third on a card...just not the whole round.

I'm in the same boat as you with slowing down and throwing more DX plastic. Have you thought about adding a less-stable fairway driver like a Leopard? I have 3 in my bag (champ, 2 pro's) so I don't have to rely on a beat-up disc for that spot

Let me know how this setup works for you.
