I posted about this a little while back but, I love the tsunami. I have a few in my bag but even at max weight in the sparkle plastic they aren't optimal as a very overstable driver. They track left too much on knife hyzers. I was in denial about this for at least a year but after switching to a spirit for my super overstable spot I've seen a marked improvement from that spot in the bag.
If I were you I'd drop the avengers and talon and go with just tsunamis for the moderately overstable spot and since you seem to be a Discraft/DGA type of guy go with an FLX Predator for your pig. I found the spirit to fly slightly better lines and the Predator to lay down after it hits the ground a little better. Not a huge difference really.

I don't tend to throw knife/spike hyzers, so that's not much of a concern in my bag. The only time I find myself throwing shots like that they tend to be in putter distance (<200ft), so I do it with an APX or Challenger, or rarely a Comet.

The tsunamis are fine for even pretty nasty winds here. I was playing in a 30+mph head-cross (left->right) wind and my tsunami (from just the shallowest of flips) just went beautifully straight for a good 320 before it started slowing down and faded. If I'm out golfing in wind more severe than that, maybe a predator would help some, but I've thrown them and I don't think the small difference in a twice a year case would merit me taking out the avengers. The talon's not leaving no matter what. they don't make a glow pred/tsunami, and all it's there for is headwind shots in the dark. Not as stable as the pred or not, the tsunami's a max overstable disc, and until it's super beat, it's not "moderately" overstable.

Honestly, I didn't like throwing knife hyzers all that much either until I put a better disc in for those shots. :) For backhand, the tsunami is plenty stable for any headwind I've faced. I just need a little more stability for sidearms and knife hyzers.

Yeah, spike hyzers are awesome once you realize how predictable they are. I'd recommend the week 5 training assignment if you haven't tried it already.

Ah, see... I don't throw sidearm. If I do it too often it messes with my back. If I need serious right fade I either throw a crazy sky anny or throw lefty. Only sidearm shots I bust out with any regularity are little flicks to get out of or around bushes.

If I needed to throw a spike hyzer and needed more turn and less skip than a tsunami gives, I'd probably bust out a flick. They're pretty hot for those shots.

Changes to the bag, tourney coming up...It's a bit more predictable now, and by it I mean my distance drivers... Love me some Rogues, but not enough to let my tourney scores suffer heh
