Default MVP/Axiom Minimalist Bag Suggestions

I'm considering putting together a brand specific bag here. Really have enjoyed throwing the matrix and I know they came out with some wider rimmed stuffed recently.

If you could only suggest 4 to 5 molds what would they be? By the way the envy and matrix make up two slots. Also, I have teslas but because MVP drivers with the overmold technology feel differently I could never bag them with other brands.

So it looks like.

Putter = ?

Driving Putter = Envy

Midrange stable= Matrix

Fairway Stable= Tesla

Overstable fairway= ?

Long Range Bomber
= ?

Thanks for any suggestions.

To get the most out of a limited lineup, I'd consider the Volt or even Crave/Servo for the Tesla slot (this is if you want at least one driver to be slower than the 10ish speed of the Tesla.) Roughly speaking, the Crave/Servo are related the way the Tbird/Eagle are. Similar comparison.

Overstable fairway= The Resistor is one of my favorite molds, but it's beefy OS until is seasons some. I've got a Proton one that's, like, FAF Firebird OS. If you like the Tesla (wider rim,) I'd also suggest the Motion. (I'm still pining for a Proton Motion)

Long Range Bomber= Depends on what you like in general for this slot, but the Wave or Octane are of the -2, 2 variety of drivers.

Thanks for innova comparison, which for the most part I can relate too.

I just acquired two, sweet looking dark grey/black octanes. They are blazing fast and long. One hit the shule and with the daylight waning I couldn't find her.

But I may just not replace it yet until more feedback comes my way.

I'm new to MVP stuff, but for putting putter, I'd say electron Atom. Looks like a flat top Aviar p&a and I believe it is the same core as the Envy. You get your choice of regular or soft baseline plastic and it flies pretty neutral.

My favorite disc is a grey/black proton Anode. Useless once it gets close to dusk.

I agree with Toro. In a minimalist bag like this I'd go with a Crave for my FW driver. For OS FW I'm a big fan of the Resistor too, light ones can be manageable if you don't want utility beef (but I like utility beef and the Resistor is good and workable for that too). I also like the Plasma Wave the most for my long range bombing but a beat in Photon is super nice and dependable for most wind conditions too.

On the putter I'd go with something in Electron since it's doing putts only so that leaves you with Ion, Spin, and Atoms currently. I personally prefer the Ion for everything but since you're driving with an Envy you can specialize on your putter more. The Spin is nice (locks onto lines really well for spin putters, not so great at push putting IMO.) The Atom is shaped more like the Envy so that might be preferable. It putts fine but I never could jibe with it, a little too quick and nose angle sensitive for my putting style.

Putter - this is unique to everyone
Envy
Matrix
Resistor - great for short, overstable skips and spikes
Tesla
Insanity, Inertia or Switch - Something flippy and glidey

Personally, I'm not a fan of the Tesla and would prefer the Volt in this spot

My 4 disc bag is Anode, Axis, Resistor and Volt

Envy and Matrix is a great start. I'd use the Tesla in another slot though. If I were building a 5 mold bag based around those three, here is what I'd choose:

Putting - Ion in soft electron (This slot obviously preference)
Driving Putter - Max weight plasma Envy
Stable mid - Matrix
Stable fairway - Crave (I'd go for max weight plasma)
OS fairway - Resistor (Its one of the best OS molds on the market today)
Distance bomber - Tesla. For very controlled distance lines I'd choose a Tesla or Wrath. For max range distance I'd choose a Defy or Octane depending on the stability you prefer (Defy straight to fade, Octane a little turn with some fade). If you like low weights for max D I'd suggest a 140's Fission Photon. Where I live control matters more than distance so I'd opt for the Wrath, but on a long open course I'd go with one of the faster molds.

One more thought: You could add another mold if you found a putter from MVP / Axiom you enjoyed driving and putting with. I believe you said in another post you don't like putting premium plastic, so currently that gives you the Ion, Atom and Spin to consider for putting. Ion is also available in premium plastic for driving, and the Atom will be launched in Proton early this year.

Thanks for any suggestions.
This is where I'd be, and you should be able to handle really any course with those discs.
