Arrow Bag feedbag - BZ summer 2015

Vitals:
Years playing/experience: 7 years
Right/left-handed/ambidextrous: Left handed
Throwing Style: LHBH, some Lhfh ( working on it after a shoulder injury had me afraid to use it the first 6 years of playing)
Golf Distance (avg/max*) for putter/mid/driver: Putters: 250/275'; Mids: 300/350'; Fairways: 325'/400', Drivers 400+ ( Have never really tested for max )

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


Optional:
Age: Dirty 30
Sex: M
Injuries/handicaps?: Sketchy shoulder from baseball
Other sport proficiencies?: Baseball
What do you like/dislike about your current bag?: Alot of fairway deviations dependent on course layout and lack of LHFH confidence
Specific areas of desired feedback: Fairway driver disaster


Bag:
Distance Drivers (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):
Star Destroyers x 4 - Ranges from beat to death understable to Very Overstable
- These seem to cycle fairly well for me, Cannot flick them to save my life but Usually its not a huge issue at least not till my LHFH develops more

Fairway Drivers (This is the section that gets pretty confusing so bear with it):
175 Champion Thunderbird X2- (Fresh and seasoned) - General overstable Fairway duties that require a left to right finish - Can handle any headwind thrown at them. {Current Fh distance drivers }
171 Champion Thunderbird x2 -( Both worn) - Dead straight shots, very minor Left to right finish.

175 Jk pro Valkyrie x3 - ( Fairly Seasoned / Worn / Thrashed[Spike Anhyzers/Rollers] ) - These aren't always in the bag, Only if I am playing a course where there is heavy woods or it will require throwing shots with severe right to left lines for more than 1-2 holes.

175 Champion Teebird x2 - ( Worn ) - Neither of these have any fade left can lock them in straight or force a slight right to left out of them without much worry about them pulling out. occasionally swapped out for the valks

Mids:
180 Champion Roc3 - ( Seasoned but still beefcake ) Most overstable mid shots
171 Champion Roc3 - Most used mid in the bag Very reliable almost point and shoot slight fade Right.

175 Champion Mako3 - ( Fresh working in as a backup) Currently Straight will hold a very glidey hyzer if needed
170 Champion Mako3 - ( beat and ugly but she flies so nice )

Putters:
Nova 170 something x3 - Probably my most used discs almost anything under 250 and they are getting pulled out Can make them fly on any line.

McPro aviar 175 x 4 ( Hooray Stiff aviars!!) Main putters never thrown off the tee 2 are seasoned have been in the bag for ~2 years used for longer putts 2 are fresh inside 40ft

Thanks for any feedback

I think your fairway setup looks good as far as molds go. But you could probably go with 2 thunderbirds, maybe 3, 1 or 2 valkyries and 1 teebird. No need to carry backups for every mold you have, especially if its casual play. You could easily go from 9 to 5 fairways.
Why the three Novas? Do you use all three? I'd bag one nova and 2-3 aviars.

Your DDs are fine. Seems that Destros are the KC Roc cycle of drivers. If I had the arm for them I'd be throwing a cycle of them too.

I actually do use all three novas, At one point i was carrying 5( I throw really stupid high risk shots with them for some reason during casual play) . I had thought about dumping two of the thunderbirds to keep the valks in full time so that may happen.

Pick 1 teebird, 1 valk, 1 thunderbird, and go play a round. After that round, were there any shots you couldnt make with those chosen discs? If so, fill the slot accordingly. This is how I narrowed down my selection. I went from a leopard, underworld, river, TL, star teebird and champ teebird, champ eagle, and champ banshee (my 9 speed discs I consider drivers). By doing this Im playing the same, or better with an Underworld, TL, TB. Windier days I sub the TB for the Banshee. The eagle is now only for thumbers that I need to flip over to weave through trees on 2 holes.
