Switching to a MVP bag

I throw a mixed bag currently, looking at setting up a secondary bag that is all MVP. Looking for suggestions of MVP discs that will essentially mirror my current bag. Call me a fanboy, but from an engineering background I love MVP's approach to the industry and want to support their cause.

Vitals:
Years playing/experience: DG 2 years; 4 years of Ultimate
Right/left-handed/ambidextrous: right-handed
Throwing Style: RHBH mostly, RHFH and OH mixed in
Golf Distance (avg/max*) for putter/mid/driver: Aviar: 250/275'; Buzzz: 290/325'; Trespass: 340/375'

* Max distance is the greatest distance you can throw your top 2-3 drivers with any regularity


Optional:
Age: 24
Sex: M
Injuries/handicaps?: Bum right knee
Other sport proficiencies?: Ultimate

Bag:

Drivers (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):
169 OptoHex Missilen-FH max D
153 Blizz Boss (beat)-hyzer flip max D
172 BioFuzion Trespass-General distance driver, sometimes swapped for a 175 star Wraith
171 Champ Valkyrie (beat)-Medium to long accuracy drives, tunnel shots
173 Opto River-Long accuracy drives, anywhere glide will come in handy (used mainly when a the extra stability over the valkyrie is needed)

Mids:
178 Z Buzzz- OS mid
175 Z Buzzz (beat)-go to mid
175 ESP FLX Buzzz (beat)- US mid

Putters:
175 Classic Blend Warden- main putter in the circle
175 RFF Wizard-hit and stick upshot putter
175 Star Aviar-driving putter
175 BT Soft Swan- US driving putter

I'm figuring on an Ion for my Aviar, and Atom for my Warden, an Axis for my Buzzz, and a Tesla for my Trespass/Wraith. Other than that, I'm unsure of what to go with. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Drivers:
(no replacements yet for your 11+speed stuff until new releases this year)
Motion
Tesla
Volt (seasoned)
Inertia

Mids:

Alias/Axis/Theory

Putters:

Lots of great MVP putters but only one in the baseline plastic currently. Ion, Anode, Envy, Proxy, Atom are all very HSS putters. You will need a beat one to truly get understable lines out of it. If you like big beads then go Ion for sure. Atom is a beadles Ion while the other molds are more envy like in feel/design.

MVP molds are often released in complementary sets where they have the same core but unique overmold wing design. It gives you two options of cycling one mold or pairing up different molds.

Volt, this is my opinion, is the best and most versatile disc that MVP makes. You can't go wrong with it. That is an absolute ust for your bag. Envy is the best driving putter on the market, and you would be remiss not to have one in your bag for drives and upshots. Its shallow so you may not like it for putting, but Mike C the overmold guru uses it to putt with so it clearly works.

If you haven't used much MVP in the past, just keep in mind it will take you a very, very long time to beat in. Like, stupid long. So you may need to carry more molds then you are used to for awhile. For instance, you could play hard with a Neutron Volt for a year and it still won't fly like a fresh N Amp.

I throw Wizards, have tried the Ion.. never really clicked.. I do like the Envy, that's the closest I've thrown IMO from MVP.. If I were going all MVP I'd probably load up with an Envy and an Anode.. Not sure about the new one in base plastic, although that sounds kind of appealing.

The Theory I also throw right now, that'll slot nicely in the beat Buzzz / Buzzz SS role.

Whoops meant anode is headless ion. A lot of people don't like how deep those discs can feel or something about the core designs which are a unique. Probably why poster above liked the envy coming from wizards even with the ion having similar profile the feel is different.

Yep, I really did not jive well with the inside of the lip and over all feel. Flew fine.

go soft proton anode for driving and putting.

go proton envy for your driving/approach ion sub. just learn to putt with the anode in the wind; it can handle it just fine.

go theory for your understable mid/putter. it'll beat in to hold shorter anny shots i bet, it's fairly understable to begin with.

go axis for your straight shooter.

go vector for your os mid.

go tesla/crave/switch/resistor/inertia

neutron tesla will be your headwind d driver and OS calm conditions distance.

proton inertia the workhorse d driver

proton crave the workhorse fairway

switch the understable fairway

resistor control in the wind fairway.

done. proton has way better grip out of the gate IMO. i used it whenever possible.

you're going to have to compromise and learn how to work lines a bit better. not insinuating you're bad it, i just mean they don't have anything understable in putter form.

I'd guess a Crave for the River, maybe one a bit lighter. Crave's the only gyro driver I've thrown that I felt like had remarkable glide but I haven't thrown a lot of their understable ones.

Inspire is going to be the closest to the River. Crave is quite stable in comparison. The Inertia is very similar to a faster Valk. Axis is a longer Buzzz. Theory is a great US, but might be more US than your beat Buzzz, also consider a Tangent for that spot.
