Update and looking for a couple suggestions

Other thread was more than 41 days old so here we go again...

Age: 24
Years playing: about a year, played almost everyday all last fall and this spring
RHFH for all drives last year, changed to RHBH this year
RHFH Fairway: 350'
RHBH Fairway: 240/290' Mids: 200/230 Putters: Up to 150'

I'll BH every hole unless its a ~325' hole going right where I know its an easy birdie if I FH. Been playing everyday lately now that finals are over and really have been dropping my scores. My BH is much more consistent and putting is really coming together

Here's my bag:

Fairway:
166 S-PD - still use for long FH favoring shots, straight finish
172 Dx EX - All around FH disc
172 Dx EX - pretty beat, flies like my 11x TB w a harder finish, "stable" BH disc, still don't have the power to really make it go
168 Pro Leo - go to driver on 80% of holes, learning to work all lines w this
169 CH Leo - little more stable than the Pro
166 Dx Cheetah - figure its like a slower valkyrie right? just trying this one out, its easy to hyzer flip and i get really good distance out of it
173 CH Firebird - Utility $$

Mids:
175 Z Buzzz - Awesome
175 Dx Shark - New, hate the plastic, flies like poop
175 Dx Shark - 10 years old, beat, dead straight, turnover, has cracks in the plate but still flies awesome
176 FLX Drone - Utility, FH approaches $$

Putters:
173 Pro-D Challenger - Approach
173 Soft Challenger - Putting
173 X Challenger - rubber, approaches that need to stick

So I'm going to get rid of the new Dx shark, i can't stand the plastic, all 30 of them at GGGT were domey and the same. Last thread I made, people suggested the X-Comet to replace my super old shark as a straight/turnover mid. Going to get one of those soon.

Where I really feel like Im missing something when I'm on the course is a mid/approach disc that flies straight w a hard finish in the 125-175 range.

The drone is too overstable for this and my buzz/shark/challenger finish too straight. I play a pretty wooded course (kaposia, MN) so throwing a hyzer shot isn't an option a lot of the time. I have a Dx Roc that powered down sorta fits this role but I can't stand the grip, just doesn't feel right. I was thinking maybe a D-Zone? once it beats in a little? I felt these at the store the other day and it feels super nice in my hand. Just not sure how overstable it'll be...
Gator?
Wasp powered down? Then could also be a more mid w more turn than my buzz?
Heavy S-Shark? The ones in the store are all 180g and much flatter than the Dx. Feel much better in my hand.

Thanks!

The selection is not that bad, I would be more interested in your form to maximize the discs you have.
What is a DX EX?

finishing hard at 125-175 would be an overstable putter, like a Jokeri or maybe a zone, but a zone may be too overstable.
if you are concerned about the distance try a hornet.

looks pretty solid dude.. also i bet you could find some nice old dx sharks on here for pretty cheap if you are not happy with the new stuff.. also you could get a champ shark for a beefy mid.. like a fresh kc roc .. and actually pretty easy to find at good prices..but thats just if you really like the shark there are other options out there that arent oop

yeah i'm starting to think a zone would be too overstable. i think i may look at getting a beefy star shark with a high PLH, gggt had a ton of max weight ones the other day.

For the mid I would suggest an Opto Pain. Flies much straighter than say a gator or trident but finishes with a strong fade.

Also, I like dx eagles but they get squirrely for me after a bit. So maybe look into a 170g Champion Eagle X
