Help me pick my Drivers

Ok, so I've got a stack of Drivers sitting here, and I'm trying to decide which 6 I should carry in my Fade Crunch Box (I would like to limit it to 6, but I can go 7 if need be). So, based on the list below, what should I have in my bag.

I throw RHBH, average about 290-310 (330ish long), and I throw a few thumbers on my home course (use the FB for that). Let me know what you think, feedback is appreciated.

170ish star Roadrunner
170ish DX Leopard
175 Star Destroyer
178 Champ Teebird
176 Champ Wraith
150 Pro Teebird-L
174 Champ Valk (Stays no matter what, go to driver)
??? 11x Champ Firebird
170ish Pro Line PD Freak
175 Echostar Teebird
173 DX Wraith
168 DX Firebird (Beat)
??? DX Eagle (Beat to death)

I know it wasnt on the list but for the left over slot I would grab a DX Teebird.

This is kind of what I'm leaning towards. I like my Wraiths and my Destroyer ( I like the feel of the wider rim), but they really don't give me that much extra distance right now (10-15 feet over my fairways, but w/ less control). I'll play a few rounds w/ this set up and see what I can do.
Thanks for the feedback

My problem was that with the faster drivers I wasnt getting much added distance but my control was horrible. So I stopped throwing them. My bag consists of Cyclones in various plastics and weights as my main control and distance disc and Eagle X for wind and shots I need to go left. Thats it for drivers. The best part about this choice has been that my scores are going down and my distance is getting longer.

That is what I am trying to do now. I've been playing less then a year, and when I first started I just bought a lot of disc to try out. Now I'm learning that my scores are better when I stick to less disc. The other day I played a round w/ just my Valk, Roc, and Wizard, and rocked it out.

Leopard
Eagle
PD
Valkyrie

Thats probably really all you need. Also, possibly something you are comfortable throwing into a headwind. Maybe the Roadrunner if the Valk or Eagle doesn't cover its shots.

Since you are asking, you are probably best off playing a couple rounds with your Valkyrie, mid(s), and putter(s), and really I am saying Valkyrie because you say that you really like it, otherwise I would replace it with the Leopard. Then decide what additional driver shots you need and add according to that.

I am still fairly new, but I am a fan of minimalism in general. Comparing to my bag, I have a stable Cyclone and a less stable Cyclone that cover the majority of my drives. The Avenger comes out on open holes or when I need a big hyzer. According to the signs on my course, I throw about 360' but I am pretty sure they are wrong... I'm probably right around your distances or a little farther. Just need to fix the OAT problems and maybe then I'd be up to 360' legit (probably not though :/)

With the distances you stated, I would say keep the Leopard, Teebird and Valk.
