It sounds like too many molds. Fewer molds, more discs of the same mold in different states of wear. I carry two fairway drivers; TeeBirds and Leopards (as well as a Firebird for specialty shots, but not a regular disc). I also carry two distance discs: Destroyers and Terns. I'm thinking about getting rid of the Terns and beating in Destroyers for simplicity. The upshot (no pun intended) is you might be better served by practicing shaping lines with more neutral discs than carrying a bunch of molds. My personal philosophy (YMMV, of course) for drivers is:
1 slower understable mold
1 slower neutral to overstable mold
1 faster understable mold
1 faster overstable mold
(I also carry 1 mold for trick/specialty shots like thumbers, spike hyzers, forehand rollers, etc., but this disc isn't typically thrown normally)
The rest is just line shaping. Hell, I can throw my Leopards on hyzer lines if I want or give it a little gas, throw it flat, and have it turn over. Personally, I wouldn't over-think the disc selection and simply work on throwing straight.
