Default My bag six months into my habit,opinions please.

Vitals:
48 y.o.a, 6'3", 350lbs.
Throw RHBH
Right knee shot(waiting to replace it) wear metal reinforced brace

Putter: Wizards 100'-150'
Mid: Buzzz 160'-200'
Fairways: Icon Rival/Patriot 200'-250'
these are consistent accurate averages

The Bag:
167g Icon Rival/Patriot (variety of shots,most used discs)
164g DX Leopard (getting beat but still not flippy)
169g eliteZ Buzzz (shot-shaping mid)
165g Star Sidewinder (recently purchased the SW and Breakout,used,still learning them)
155g Lucid Breakout (surprisingly stable for a lighter disc)

Putters:
175g Wizard S (cycling all for putting,and throwing,until I dial them in)
175g Wizard SS
173g Wizard SSS
173g Wizard RFF

also in bag,but seldom used:
172g Prime Witness (haven't clicked with this yet;sometime os,sometimes hard turn)
173g Champion Katana (found it,owner said keep it;just sits in my bag daring me to throw it)
167g Omega SS (my first putter,like it,but wind pushes it around)
172g Lightning #2 Driver (os,but not much glide)
147g Lightning #1 Driver Glow (Lightnings' are floaters)

So,at six months in,do I have a foundation to build on?I think I might need a beefy wind fighter,but the Rival works for now.I play a few times a week;my home course is Homestead Air Reserve Park,in south Florida,which is long,and often windy.Really appreciating the flexibility of the Wizards,Buzzz,and Rival/Patriot combo.Thanks in advance for any opinions,and,always,for the generosity of everyone who shares their knowledge,to help new players improve.

Forgot to mention that,because of my knee,I use a one-step,or stand-still throwing motion.Also,played with a guy,who had a nice roller shot with a Condor,would love to learn that shot.

For reference, i've been playing for only 9 months myself. My drives fall between 250 and 300, and I can get a consistent range of 250 with mids. I drive from a standstill, since every time i try an x-step, I overhyzer my throw.

I think the only thing i'd recommend adding is an overstable midrange. I use a max weight Champion Roc3, but whatever mold you prefer.

And yeah, the Katana can stay at home. I throw at an honest armspeed of 6, but I've rolled a 173g Lucid Thief (speed 8, very stable) throwing into a headwind, so there is (IMO) legitimate reason to carry discs up to speed 9, but nothing beyond.

Here's hoping your knee recovers.

Are you turning over the drivers you have? I would think that you should be utilizing s-curves to get more distance with your stand still drive.

Lynn LeFay,Zenbot,thanks for the input.Been considering a BuzzzOS since I really enjoy my eliteZ Buzzz.Zenbot,when I began,concentrated on throwing low,and flat,for accuracy,and now am working on developing more wrist snap,and better involvement of my core in my throw.learning flex shots,and hyzer flips also.
