i think you just go with 1 disc from moderate overstable and 1 disc from the very overstable.

Also..you got more middies than carter has liver pills!!!

I'd pick something slower.

Pick one.

Pick one mold. It sounds like you're using these for line shaping. I'd consider evaluating how this category interacts with your control driver category. Ideally, there will be a spectrum of stability from your control drivers to your understable drivers.

4. Moderately Overstable Driver
174 Star Teerex
175 Champion Wraith X
171 Star Destroyer
Pick one.

5. Very Overstable Driver
175 Star Max
175 Champion Firebird (Mostly Thumbers)
171 Star Xcaliber (For intense headwinds)
I'd just use the Firebird.

Mids:
175 Star Stingray (Longer understable shots/ Roller)
177 Opto Core (Very Straight/very little fade)
175 Star Cro (Stable)
171 Sinus AP (Very Overstable)
165 DX XD (Very Beat/ Very Flippy)
167 DX XD (Newer/ Straighter)
Either pick one and carry it in multiple stages of wear or one overstable and one stable.

you think maybe a teebird for a slower stable driver? The dx destroyer is prob my max d disc, but i only throw it for open field bombs, so i don't ruin the disc on trees or rocks. but yes i could pick either the orc or the wraith.

to be honest, i really don't use the beast so much anymore, and i could prob get away with my star sidewinder, and my opto vision.

i just started really liking my star destroyer, and i have been throwing the teerex since they came out. i just retired my first teerex, since i usually keep two in my bag at different stages of wear. so i have the slightly worn teerex in my bag now, and i am carrying the wraithx for more overstable stuff to try it out, cause from what i have read it's just a champion teerex. for the very overstable,

yeah i could pick between the max and the firebird and i would most likely go with the firebird, the xcaliber is another testing out disc.

and yes i do carry lot of mid's though i throw putt and appraoch discs for most of my mid shots. i could prob get away with one xd (i am carrying two to start breaking a new one in), my sinus AP, my core and my stingray.

Thanks for the advice, i'll try that bag for a round or two and see what happens.

What I do is carry both Teebirds and Gazelles. I use the Teebirds for straight shots and the Gazelles for everything else (hyzers, anhyzers, turnovers and 'S' shots). The idea is that the Teebird is so long and straight that even though it overlaps with the Gazelle it will get used so much that the overlap is justified. I get nearly distance driver type 'D' with it but with more control and less fade. Basically, the Gazelle is my versatile control driver and the Teebird is so good that it gets it's own slot. It's just normally called a control driver because of its speed.

Alright, i used to throw a teebird, and then got away from it. maybe it's time to give it another go.
