The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I've been throwing more and more of my buzzes, ace race 08's, and drone lately which makes me wonder what kind of proportion most people keep of midranges to drivers in their bag. Thinking about getting a meteor because I don't have any understable midranges (or putt/approach). I keep 4 midranges in my bag and around 12 drivers.

5 Drivers, only 3 molds (Leopard, Beast, Destroyer). One overstable leopard for accurate straight shots that need a little fade, one beat to hell one for sick annys. A single Star Beast that flies just how I like it for long S curves. Two destroyers in about the same state of wear for forehanding, max distance, and shooting into the wind.

1 Mid range, a 180g Glow Roc which I plan to get more of. :) I tried the Buzz but the Roc just seems to fit in my hand better, the glow plastic has a great grip, and beautiful straight flight plan with a nice fade at the end.
1 beat flat top ching roc
1 new dx roc
1 12x kc pro roc
1 2006 champ roc
1 z drone

and about 7 drivers
as of now i have:
DX Wraith
Champion Viking

DX Shark
Elite Z Buzz

Aviar P&A

but i hoping to replace the aviar, and shark with a drone, core, and ss wizard then from there work on getting drivers after my form and technique is down.
3 Mid ranges
Drone (FLX)
Torque (ESP)
Buzz (ESP)

6 Extra Long Range Drivers
3 Predators ( 2 Elite Z, 1 ESP)
2 Trackers ( 1 Elite Z, 1 ESP)
1 Venom (ESP)

4 Maximum Distance Drivers
2 Pulses (ESP)
1 Avenger (Elite Z)
1 Force (ESP)

2 Putters
Challenger (FLX)
Zone (ESP)
I play mostly Innova for drivers, I do have several Stingrays and a Wolf that I use for specific shots, but can't throw Rocs either. I found that the Buzzz is the perfect midrange for me - I carry three: Cryztal Z Buzzz, Cryztal Z Buzzz SS and a FLX Buzzz. I absolutely love them - and I recently added an Opto Core. You might give these a try.
I've got 4 molds for drivers: (2)Champ Starfire, (2)Star SL, (2)Champ Valkyrie, (2)Champ Teebird. One mold for midrange: (2)Star Skeeter. One mold for putter: (2)Star Aero.

I just started using the Skeeter and I'm lovin' it. It has great glide, and will hold any line I put on it. I have to get used to the right touch for my throws. It has more glide than my previous midrange (Champ Panther) so I'm sometimes going to long on my approach.
It is a hyzer putter, with a left hook at the end of it's flight during approaches.

When it's done, it's done -

Like a dead weight, it drops straight down and stays where it's put.

Like a Pig, I guess.

What I have found to be most remarkable about it is that probably 80% of the time when I hyzer putt with it -
It plops into the basket without hitting or tinkling the chains one bit...

Have to throw it with anhyzer in wind though. It can be quite flippy when it's bottom gets exposed.

I like the tackiness of the Pig's plastic.

However, I use the Pig mainly as an approach disc, in unique circumstances.

It's use as a putter I would say, would be for unique circumstances as well.

A useful disc nonetheless.

for me - 12 drivers, 3 mids

176g, 177g, 180g Star Shark
172g Star Eagle X
170g, 171g, 171g Star TL
171g, 171g, 172g, 172g, 172g Star SL
171g, 171g Star SL
171g Star Firebird
7 mids, 3 buzzz's, 2 wasps, Flx drone and a comet. 15 drivers 2 surges, 4 forces (esp and Z) 2 crush's, 2 flicks, 2 nukes, 2 preds, 1 stalker. I carry so many because I throw forehand, backhand and overhead so each disc has a certain purpose in life plus I like carrying back ups
8 Drivers: Nuke 165, Nuke 170, Nuke 174, Pro Boss 167, Star Boss 165, Champ Boss 172, Star Katana 174 (roller), Champ Monarch 172 (unstable).
2 Mids: Star Ontario 20th Anniversary Roc 176 (stable), Z Wasp 177 (overstable).
3 Putters: Big bead Aviar 175 (stable) R-Pro Aviar 172 (main putter), JK Pro Aviar 172 (wind putter).

I can make the Roc go left or right, and use the Wasp for hyzer shots or into the wind. All I need is these two mids. Never carried more than 3 ever. I see that I need to cut down the dirvers.
4 mid and 6 drivers.
3 Classic Rocs and a DGA Squall, everything else is drivers - mostly Valk's and RoadRUnners/Sidewinders
