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.

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
At the moment--subject to change tomorrow--I have
7 drivers
3 midranges
1 fairway driver
2 putters

My midranges are Star Roc, Star Mako, and a Gateway Element in E plastic. All are new--they replaced a DX Roc--but so far each has done what I wanted it to.
4- sidewinders
2- nukes
2- pulses
2- pulse ss's
2- flicks
1- tracker
13 drivers

3- buzzzs
1- drone
1- core
1- zone
6 mids

2- soft challengers
1- flx challenger
1- pro d challenger
4 putters

23 discs total!
I throw the Hive (3 mids)
Buzzz for most mid range shots
Wasp when I need it to turn left or fight a little wind &
Drone when it is a short hyzer or a lot of wind
My drivers range from 6-9 with new and/or beat in models of any of teh following

Challengers to Putt
10 drivers (4 over stable for hooks and wind) (4 max distance) (2 utility)
8 mids (mix of stabilities to deal with wind, tight shots, woods or anyhyzers. One is actually a understable driver and another an over stable putter, but I use them as mids)
1 Flx Buzzz
I have about 60% mids n putter and 40% fairway and distance drivers
Although I carry 11 of my 15 discs in my bag, I really only use 4-5 discs on any given course. My current starting 5:

Champion Orc - 171 (hyzers - my most often used driver)
Star Destroyer - 170 (straight distance or to squeeze down narrow fairways)
Pro Katana - 171 (tommies or whenever I need to curve opposite my orc)
DX Roc - 175 (short drives and long layups or birdie attempts over 80ft.)
Champion Aviar - 165 (the one and only putter I use under any and all conditions, period. If I'm under 80ft.. this is the disc)

sixth man, coming off the bench:

Champion Beast - 175 (hyzers in stronger winds and/or whenever I don't want to risk throwing my Orc in the water)
2 mids
buzz, shark

10 drivers
a lot of discraft
