Recommend discs to fill holes in my bag please?

Hey guys, I've been hearing a lot of good stuff about Latitude 64 discs lately, namely things about the Opto plastic, the River, etc... and would like to add 1-2 discs to my bag to try out. Currently I throw all Innova except a single Prodigy disc. I saw a thread similar to this, but it was for a forehand thrower, and with different discs in his bag obviously. I throw backhand almost all of the time and my farthest drive is probs 375'.

Here's what I've got, from putters to distance drivers:

Aviars
Roc
Coyote
Roc3
Panther
Whippet
Leopard
F5
Valkyrie
Orc
Monarch
Destroyer

Any recommendations or other questions? Thanks

It looks to me like you need a few fairways. IMO Innova's fairways are superior to those of Lat, so I'll suggest what works.

Putter(s)- Aviars

US mid- Panther
Stable mid(s)- Any combination of Roc3, Roc and Coyote
OS mid- Whippet

US Fairway- Leopard or F5
Stable fairway- Teebird or Eagle
OS Fairway- Banshee or Firebird


US Distance - Valkyrie or Monarch
Stable to OS distance- Orc or Destroyer

Maybe a Saint Pro for OS control/fairway driver? That seems to be what you are missing. I haven't thrown one though, I use a PD for that currently.

River is a glidey understable disc, it would be like your leopard but more glide. I have a Saint also that now is used for a couple of months, and it has controlled turn and not a lot of fade. Good for the 350-375' power range, you can crush it hard and it goes pretty good without being flippy. With that power level you can get it to anhyzer nicely too. However I haven't thrown an F5 and it's been a very long time since I've thrown a Valk, so I'm not sure how much overlap there would be there.

If you are driving with your Aviars you may want to try out the Pure.

Every bag should have a Pure.

Yeah, after looking at what you guys are saying, I'd agree I'm missing a stable fairway driver like the Teebird. I think the Whippet is technically a fairway driver, so I usually use that for overstable shots in that range, but even so... there's a decent gap there between the Whippet and the Orc.

I don't regret buying the F5, I really like it, but it's like a slightly longer and more stable Leopard, so I guess a River is the last thing I need.

I don't typically drive with my Aviars (maybe I should). On holes that an Aviar would be viable, I guess I'd toss my Roc, but I just lost the Roc on sat. I was thinking I'd just pick up a new one since I love it, but the Pure intrigues me... A little shorter and less fade than a Roc, right?

It doesn't look like Lat makes a stable Fairway like the Teebird, eh? Well, the Saint Pro seems the closest, but fades harder?.. hmm.. I really want to try a Latitude disc, but I don't want to buy one for the hell of it.

At my power level I find a banshee is very usable like a more dependable Teebird for windy days. The whippet was something like I have never thrown but our course has very few hyzer shots so the whippet was just too much for me.

I know you specifically said Lat 64, but I actually prefer Westside and DD molds. Except for the Pure, which is my favorite from all.

I'm not limiting myself to buying a Lat 64 disc, they just sounded appealing since I keep hearing people go gaga over the plastic and stuff. I'm open to suggestions. What are some Westside and DD discs you recommend for me?

Drivers:
Sword - more friendly to me than a Destroyer
Trespass - same
Renegade - becoming a go to if not into a wind

FDs:
Underworld
Thief
Escape(more like a 10 speed driver-I use it as both a driver and FD)

Mids:

Verdict
Truth
Suspect(becoming one of my most used molds)
