I'm fully aware how narcissistic this is. Still, if anyone cares. Here's what I throw around.

New year, newish simplified setup. I just built stacks of my favorites and got rid of tempting randoms.

Mostly always I'll carry this general setup (picked from the storage boxes depending on course, conditions and mood). I'll take heavier and beefier discs when it's windier.

Control Drivers (325-400')
QOLF, 168-174 - Long Eagle. OS workhorse.
GPD, 167 - Long Teebird.
QOLS, 167-171 - Workable workhorse.
1 or 2 SOLS, 167-175 - Straight to very US and rollers

Fairways (250-350')
1 or 2 Eagles, star or champ, 167-175
1 or 2 Teebirds, star or champ, 167-175
1 or 2 Patriots, legend or icon, 167-175

Mids (150-275')
Glow Gator, 175 - Moo. Pure beef.
1-3 Rocs, flat or domey, champ or KC or DX, 177-180 - Rocs.
Theory, 177 - Real winner, stole a spot from a Roc. So nice.

Putters (1-250')
VP and Summit, 175+ - OS and US trickery. Rubbery stickery. Floppier.
or (I just can't decide which pair I prefer; weather dependent I think)
Fossil Scale and Swan, 175+, OS and US trickery. Stiffer. Scale is really really nice.

Watermelon Envy, 176 - Approaches and drives. I throw this a lot.
A Wizard or 2 around 175 grams - Putts great and small.

And, lately, a Polecat stuffed inside a Zephyr. Floaters are the funnest.

On longer more open courses I'll add a glow Tern or star Destroyer, 170-174
If it's windy I'll add a champ Firebird or two, 167-175
If I might roll a drive or two, I'll bring a pink star Roadrunner with a unicorn on it, 175
Comets are fun too, and I'll carry one on shorter courses.

I throw all this in a Mahal with some water, something or other to set me straight, jerky, sandpaper, sharpies, and some other crap. Then I spray frisbees all over the place and walk around.

That is incredibly close to my bag...

PD's / Orions
Eagle / Teebird / JLS
Sentinel / Super Stingrays / Gator Utility when needed
Harp/Judge(s)-drives / Wizard-putts

Long/Open Courses... Star and Pro Wraith
Windy/Utility... PD2
No lids or rollers (I should probably work on that)

Yeah it is. Great setup. Super similar.
Super Stingray huh? Why come those? And what Sentinels?
Most of the time I will just roll a heavy, beat-up OLS, so start there.

I threw Super Stingrays when I first started playing... they are extremely comfortable in my hands making for a clean release. I have been throwing the same Champ for the last three years and it is now very similar to a fresh Theory. I also have a board flat Star Super Stingray (Inncolor). It has a higher PLH compared to the champs... very Buzz like. Now that they are OOP, I am probably going to make the switch to Truths or possibly a QMS in that slot. Maybe I will give the VRoc a try.

I am currently bagging an M Sentinel. It is an older white run with that waxy residue that leaves fingerprints. I am probably getting cancer from it but the grip is outstanding. An orange Sirius is waiting in the wings but so far the M Sentinel has been holding up really well.

I do have a beat SOLS that I could use for rollers.

Honestly, you could drop the QOLF, Eagle, and Teebird and roll with PDs and Patriots (both in different plastics for different shots). That is, if you wanted to minimize your molds.

Yeah. I could. But there is no PD that flies the lines of an OLF or an Eagle. And there are no beefy Patriots.
But you are right -- one can score well with fewer molds. I could certainly, and have before, thrown OLFs OR PDs and Eagles OR TBs. But turns out the different lines are pretty useful for me. So I like to carry both.
Used to just do Rocs too, but I like the sentinel's flight better than a Champ Roc.
Can't help myself.

So:
I dropped the Gator (except on short courses), Envy, and Theory.
I'm always carrying a Firebird. And I'm really digging LEXs (they're slow and float like lids but fly a little more OS). I'm liking using Rocs more for stuff that used to be longer putter shots, and throwing shorter, slower putters. Plus I'm usually carrying a Wraith again, but only for holes where the extra 25-40' puts me in the circle.

Distance Drivers: - 1 or 2 - (375-440')
A Wraith or two from 170-175.

Control Drivers - usually 5 - (325-400')
A nice mix of PDs and Orions from 167-175. From meaty to flippy.
And a Champ Firebird.

Fairways - usually 4 - (250-350')
A few Eagles, TBs and Patriots from 167-175.

Mids - usually 5 - (150-275')
CE Q-Sentinel, 180 - Beef. Longer than Rocs.
Some Rocs, champ or KC or DX, 177-180 - Rocs.

Putters (1-200')
Fossil Scale - Beefy approaches or powered up drives.
Two Chewy LEXs - Most approaches.
A Wizard or 2 around 175 grams - Putts great and small. Some drives.

And, most of the time, a 175 Polecat stuffed inside a 200 Zephyr. Floaters are the funnest.

If I might roll a drive or two, I'll bring a pink star Roadrunner with a unicorn on it, 175. On longer more open courses I'll occasionally add a glow Tern or star Destroyer, 170-174.

That's it.
