most likely a d or cryztal challenger, possibly a summit.

They do, though they tend to be on the poorer side (some are nice). ION is a pretty great approximation.

I agree with using a putter as well. I use a Rhyno, usually a Pro or DX plastic. From a little further out I use my Nebula.

I use a 180 Aero. It was my first putter and had been hiding in my bag ever since I got my aviar, but a few months ago my girlfriend and I were having a toss back and forth with it, and we kept moving further and further apart...and I realized the disc was pure kickass. Flies just like my glow mako only shorter and I like the bigger size and heavier weight.

Depending on the line required/wind, usually a VP, XXX, or Wizard.

KC Pro Aviar. I know I have no chance of nailing the basket, so my hope is to get close. I feel more comfortable with that than my Buzzz or my Roc.

If it is straight or slightly to the right, I go with the KC Pro Aviar. If it is to the left, or I want to hook left to get to it, I use my CFR Champion Big Bead Aviar, which is pretty overstable.

Dart for everything under 300. I can throw it very accurate either straight, with anny, hyzer, with a tomahawk, and a thumber.

I agree with the earlier comments about the Rattler. At 175 it can be squirrelly. Under 100 I often go to my Rattler because I can do all the same throws as with the Dart but with more room for error since the Rattler is slower. For me the Rattler has saved me countless times when I have to throw a forehand under 100ft. Deadly accurate especially holding anny lines.

Depending on the shape of the shot I want either an anode or pro d zone.

That sounds odd to me coming from an Ultimate guy. The Rattler shouldn't be squirrely at 175' with good form and a clean release without wind. In fact it can handle mild winds.
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.

Pro D Banger GT, backhand. If it is a low ceiling left to right, I will flick.

ion or pro rhyno (forehand). On a rare occasion I would throw a Z pred when height or skip is needed.

I'm going to have to 2nd this for sure, I might use the EZE as well (depending on the wind). I'm totally enamored with this disc in the new Opto and EZE, zero is cool and all, but it doesn't hold up. Zeros pretty much lose all their stability after about 3 solids sessions of field practice.
It's all about discipline and focused practice!
