Tell me you're not looking for advice...you're posting to set an example of minimum mold setups, right?

I know you are a big fan of the Meteor, and you also were playing around with the Aftershock as a more overstable compliment to the Buzzz. What made you decide to go with just the Buzzz?

the triple x is a pretty versatile disc for your overstable approach needs it suits me just fine, depending on how good you are with a stable/understable mid, the XXX could replace a mold by being your utility disc/short wind/FH roller/short hyzers etc, basically anything you need a overstable mid for, you can use that disc for

Very DGR of you with 5 molds. You'll find I think more of us on DGCR are very "moldy". We like our variety. I'm still in that phase with my daily bag, but could mold down to about 5-6 if forced. I'm not doing many tournaments at the moment so I'm taking a full bag when I go out and am excited to use anything and everything I've got.

If prompted I could mold down to -
SS Wizards (2)

178 Z Buzzz
172 FLX Buzzz beat

175 S-PD $$$ disc

175 Champ Firebird newer
172 Champ Firebird beat

165 Star Wraith
171 Champ Wraith

172 ESP Force
175 Z Force "domey'

And for minimal rounds with the kid in the stroller, Wizard, ESP Buzzz, SOLF

But I carry 18 discs, 12 molds for daily use. Awesomesauce.

Here's what you should be throwing:

Putters
Polecat (at least 3, all pink or purple)
Champ Boss (for long putts, outside of 30')

Mids
FLX Drone (this disc has infinite uses)
Quest Wildfire (so versatile it has a nipple)
D Drone (Really beat in for understable)

Drivers
Champ Groove (best distance driver made yet)
DX Cheetah (maybe paired with an Aviar if you're naturally athletic, bitchez)
GL Vision (it's pretty, and naturally understable so that as it beats in it gets... prettier)
Speed Demon (it sounds cool, right?)

That covers every shot imaginable and will only make you a better player. Remember, your competition can't throw very well if they're too busy laughing at your set-up.

I do like the Meteor. In all my buzzzness I had never actually given the X Buzzz a shot at getting beat in, so I thought what the heck. Its still not beat into my Meteor level, but I'm liking it so far. I'm not 100% decided yet, but I'm thinking the X Buzzz is a little less squirrely as an understable mid than the Meteor.

The Aftershock lost it place for two reasons. One day I played a mini in some extreme wind. At first I was throwing my Aftershock, but it was getting flipped. I realized then that at some point all mids flip, and I was most comfortable and smooth with the Buzzz, so I just started throwing the Buzzz with ridiculous hyzer and it worked great! So the Aftershock failed for its main purpose. Also, anytime I throw a mid that has any sort of bead I get some occasional OAT issues, which usually pop up in the wind, once again negating the purpose of the disc in the first place.

This setup is something I've arrived at after throwing for a decade. I've carried all number and variety of discs in the past. At this point I've got the skill and experience to throw only a few molds, so I do. For my own confidence, I like to throw shots that I'm controlling rather than having a disc for everything. I also find it helps my range control when I throw discs of only 5 speeds. I throw all of these discs for many different shots FH and BH. I've never had so few molds that I could do so much with. For most my DG playing time I've followed more or less this model:

Beat Putter Soft
Stiff stable driver putter

Understable midrange
slightly flippy midrange
stable midrange
moderately overstable midrange

flippy fwy driver
stable fwy driver
moderately overstable fwy driver
extra overstable fwy driver

understable distance driver
slightly understable distance driver
stable distance driver
overstable distance driver

It's a nice setup you have. I think there's a little overlap at all levels except putter, e.g. I think a slightly overstable mid can do 99% of the things an overstable mid can do, so I go without the overstable myself. I'm sure through your experience you've found reasons to carry what you do though. I'm more comfortable throwing the 1 midrange I throw all the time and putting extra hyzer on it.

Speaking hypothetically though, if you were to take 1 disc from each speed range, say the straightest one, how limited would you feel in terms of the shots you could confidently throw? Are there any particular shots you'd really be wondering how to approach? Or do the different stabilities more or less make things easier / more convenient for you.

5 molds isn't crazy. Anything more than 6 is IMO
