Sothe422's bag. Help?

So I've been playing about since about, late May- early June, can't remember. So it's my birthday, and I'm thinking about getting some new discs with the cash I get. So anyway here's my bag, and after that discs I'm thinking about getting.


Drivers:
Star Valkyrie 167g. ~300-320
Champ Teebird 171g. ~280-300
DX Archangel 171g. haven't used it much, recent receive.
R-Pro Boss 159g. ??


Mids:
DX Shark 150g ~150-160 with minimal effort, haven't shot for distance yet.


Putters:
DX Aviar P&A ???g. ???


Planning on getting:
Backup Valks.
Champ Leopard 150-160
DX Eagle 160-170
Elite-X Comet 150-160
Ellite-Z Buzz max.
Soft Wizard

Anything you think I should change or anything else I should add, help would be appreciated, note that I don't like the boss so that's a happy change I already made. Also, any suggestions for something from Latitude 64

Yeah just about all the discs you "want" are good discs.
The valk should be the fastest thing your throwing for awhile

Good start, I'm going to suggest this bag:

Drivers
Overstable/headwind/FH/OH - 170s Champ Banshee
Distance - 160s Valks (champ or star, DX gets taco'd too easily with fast discs).
Go-to Driver - your 171 Champ Teebird
Understable/annys and turnovers - 170s Leopard

Mids
Overstable-stable - 170s Elite or Glow Z Buzzz
Stable-understable- 170s X or Z Comet

Putters
170s S Wizard (if you don't like the Aviar)

Not very imaginative, but this pretty well rounded.

Some of those are good discs but i would have to say you need to get rid of the boss and the teebird

What's the difference between go-to and distance? Is distance for teeing off and go-to for the fairway/shorter tees? I really don't know. And is there a difference between plain Z and glo z? other than the gloing and such.

a go to driver is one that you can count on and control in worst of pressure situations and distance is just that, for max distance. and the glo z buzzz is more overstable than the elite z

By go-to I mean 90% of your drives when you need a driver. Max D I usually reserve only for wide open bomber holes where accuracy is not a premium. Considering that "fairway" drivers like Teebirds are capable of being thrown 400', there is little reason not to throw them often. I throw Eagles more or less for go-to and a light one for max D b/c I haven't really found a faster "distance" driver that can actually out distance them enough to make them worthwhile.

Glow Z feels a little bit better to me, it has a little more flex to them.

Soo, when I start throwing like >360 I can make a faster disc my distance, and then make my valk my go-to again?

Pretty much. Although many, many pros still use Teebirds and Eagles and such. Hands play a big part too, bigger handed people can grip the wider rimmed, distance discs easier than little handed folks like myself. But you can throw anything you like, there's no rule that says you have to throw X disc or anything. All I'm saying is if you get serious about working on form and what not don't be surprised when you start out driving your buddy's Wraith or Boss with your Buzzz.

Happy huking.
