Suggestions?

Here is my bag. I have seen that some people list distances for each disc and what not, but I am a fairly new player, and really have not measured each disc. I would say that I normally can drive around 250 to 275 range.

I also prefer Innova.

Star Avair 175
ESP Focus 170
Squall 150 Class (most underated disc?)
R-Pro Roc 170
Pro D Buzzz 176
Dragon
XD Firebird 171
ESP XL 167 (thrown twice, if that)
Champion Eagle 169
Champion Valkyrie 170
Champion Monarch 165
Pro Wraith 169
Star Sidewinder 175
Star Leopard 169
Star Roadrunner 168
Star Destroyer 168 (might be realizing it is too much disc)

Keep using the ones in bold and learn them well. When you can play comfortably with those 4 discs, add the firebird, valkyrie, and roadrunner.

Which discs are you using to get those distances?

Then I'll agree with most of what jrawk said.

I'd really concentrate on using these discs for rounds:

Star Avair 175 OR ESP Focus 170

Squall 150 Class OR R-Pro Roc 170 OR Pro D Buzzz 176

ESP XL 167 OR Star Leopard 169

DX Firebird

I'd focus on all of the ones listed above when doing field work. It will help eliminate a bunch of walking and in that situation you're normally trying to fix a form problem so the actual flight is secondary.

Really that's a question for you. We're assuming that you think they are and want to throw farther. If your have other goals feel free to let us know and we can change our advice accordingly.

Being a newer player and distances being as such, drop the Monarch, Wraith and Destroyer as your distances are not out far enough to use them correctly. Focus on the Leopard and Eagle for your driving and get those out past 300 before you add faster discs.

Generally, when the Eagles and Leopards are going as far as the Wraiths and Sidewinders are going, then the wraiths and sidewinders aren't needed until your form improves. Wraiths and Sidewinders, when thrown properly can reach 350+ feet intermediate players. If you can't get them that far, most players will suggest not using them. The Eagle and Leopard are easier to control at 250-300ft regardless, and as you learn to control them better your scores will begin going down.
