Sounds like you are hooked, so you will eventually get to throw the others.

I'll look into the cyclone as well as maybe one of those crush/flash/wildcat. I usually first look at their flight characteristics on a number of charts and then decide which ones I'd need/want to try etc...
On my list to put into my bag now are 2 that I just threw away, a beast and an orc
BUT the biggest development in my game/bag right now is the super performance of my Roadrunner. I love that thing. It gives me just a bit of natural right turn before gliding back to the left slightly before touchdown 330 feet down the fairway. I play a course that has tight fairways so this flight path is optimal.

The dx archangel is way too heavy for her, IMO, any suggestions on a good mold/weight for a beginner female to throw? I was thinking some kind of stable driver in the 160 class. She's a petite girl, but suprisingly strong for her size. She finally flattened out her run up with an x-step (before she had been hop-skipping into her throw, which was sending it nose up every time). She does great with that putter, and has a decent short game. It's the long game she needs the most work on. She throws left handed backhand and still has a problem with sending it too high and having it fade to the right and back towards her.
As for my bag, I use the wraith when I need the d (at best I can get 250-300' out of it) and have been doing better at disc selection, using the roc off the tee when the wraith would be overkill and cause me to overshoot (took a couple times to learn that lesson). Should I stick with what I have and continue to develope my game, or are there any suggestions on expanding my disc selection?
