My bag after 2 years, any suggestions?

Age: 26
Other Sports: Basketball, Baseball.

I am a fairly new player with only about 17 rounds or so played over the past 2 years, and some more practice time in the basket I bought. I usually shoot a few over par but can get par and under. I usually drive for distance RHFH but if I need control I use RHBH. Drives vary but mainly 250-300 range. My main drivers are the Teebird and Boss. My main mid is the Roc and my main utter is my MVP.

What are some discs that I need in my bag? How would they help? This year I am really getting into the sport and I am playing whenever I can.

- The disc I think I want next is a Champion Teebird, my DX is getting knicked up so I want a something like that again that will hold its form in Chamion plastic.

My Bag
Drivers-
Innova Pro Boss 175g
Innovations Champion Blizzard Wraith 138g
Discraft Nuke Z 172g
Innova DX Teebird 167g (Main Driver)
Innova Pro Beast167g
Innova DX Leopard 150g

Mid-
Innova R-Pro Roc 170g
Innova DX Skeeter 175g
Innova DX Shark 145g
Discraft Comet Z (brand new, can't throw it too well) 175g

Putters-
MVP Anode Eclipse 174g (New, trying to make my main putter)
Innova DX Avair 150
Innova DX Rhyno 172g

Lose the Boss & Nuke since your only getting 300ft of distance. Stick with Fairway Drivers til your distance & form improves, I'd recommend a Teebird & Leopard.

I'm no pro, but from the tips I have been given, if you can't throw your Comet well, then you are in need of dropping all your drivers in general and just focus on form. I did this, but with a Buzz. I was in the same place as you, and did this. I play only Midrange rounds with putting for up close, it really helps you develop nice smooth form on your backhand. My form still isn't perfect, but is 1000% better then before. I went from throwing mids maybe 150 to throwing my Buzz 310 the other day(first time ever), but more consistently at 270-280. Good luck man.

Innova DX Teebird 167g (Main Driver)

Putters-
MVP Anode Eclipse 174g (New, trying to make my main putter)
Innova DX Rhyno 172g

This is what I would keep in the bag for right now.

To be honest though I would throw nothing but your Teebird,Leopard,Comet and Anode until your form starts to develop better.

What I do everynow and then when Time permits,I'll throw nothing but Comet rounds and my putting putter of course. If you have any type of form issues this disc will help fix that. Everyone I come across I tell them to go out and buy a Comet as it will be your favorite disc as you get used to it.

you're probably going to find that a champ TL is much closer to a Dx Tbird than a Champ Tbird.

And this is why you keep a Discraft Wasp on hand.

Same feel but Overstable and works very well in the wind.
