Building My Bag For 2014

Vitals:
Years playing/experience: DG year and a half. A lot the past few months.
Right/left-handed/ambidextrous: right-handed
Throwing Style: RHBH and RHFH equally.
Golf Distance (avg/max*) for putter/mid/driver: No driving with putters; Fugitive: 220/260'; Katana (RHBH): 320/350', Orion LF: (RHFH) 300/330'.

Optional:
Age: 20
Sex: M
Injuries/handicaps?: None
Other sport proficiencies?: Baseball
Additional Information: I throw just as far BH as I do FH but I just recently started throwing RHBH off the tee and I already throw pretty far after just three weeks at it. I used to only use it for midrange shots. I play at very windy courses depending on what time I go.
What do you like/dislike about your current bag?: Too many discs. I have a lot to practice when I go but it's time to cut down the bag and to get out the clutter. Also I feel inconsistent with my putters. I have the Wizard and Anode for the wind but I get a better snap with the Aviar.
Specific areas of desired feedback: Want to learn a consistent and effective choice for a go to driver as well as advice on which putter to use. And I want to cut down my disc count but I do not mind having a lot of discs in my bag (Hating the overlap).
Immediate and long-term goals: I'd like to have more consistency in my distance. Accuracy is not a problem. Also I would like to not depend on the RHFH for turn over shots on the tee.


Bag:

Drivers (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):
168 Volt/Neutron, (New) - Straight Shots
170 River/GL, (New) - annys that need to come back
172 Glide/Z, (Used) - Understable Shots
171 Shock/Neutron, (New) - big hook shots
168 Crush/Z, (Used) - FH
172 Nuke SS/Z, (Slightly Used) - Long Understable Shots
172 Nuke OS/Z, (New) - Meat hook shots
172 Avenger SS/Cryztal Z, (Slightly Used) - Long understable shots that do not come back
172 Katana/Champion, (Used) - Long Range S turn Shots
171 King/Tournament, (Slightly Used) - Max distance fade shots
166 Orion LF/Sirius, (Used) - Long Range FH Shots
174 Opto Saint, (New) - Great distance for control
174 Tournament Northman, (New) - Go to driver Now

Mids:
168 Lucid Fugitive, (Slightly Used) - Touch shots and off the tee
178 R-Pro Roc (New) - Off the tee straight shots
174 4 time KC Glo Roc (Slightly Used) - Off the tee shots just like my other. I like to have an extra.
170 Titanium Wasp (New) - Big Fade shots off the tee.
174 Lucid EMC Truth (New) - Short spike hyzers over obstacles.
170 First Run Buzzz (Slightly Used) - Off the tee longer than my Roc.

Putters:
174 RFF Wizard, (New) - Main putter
174 Proton Anode (New) - Main putter to go with the wizard
170 R-Pro Aviar (Beat) - Outside the Circle
166 Champion Aviar (New) - Outside the Circle
172 DX Aviar (New) - Outside the Circle

I also have 25 other discs in my stack if there are not enough here to fill a gap.

What I would change:

Drivers (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):
174 Tournament Northman, (New) - Go to driver Now

171 Shock/Neutron, (New) - big hook shots
174 Opto Saint, (New) - Great distance for control
172 Avenger SS/Cryztal Z, (Slightly Used) - Long understable shots that do not come back

*Grab a Teebird or Rival for the stable to OS fairway slot
170 River/GL, (New) - annys that need to come back


Mids:
*Pick between Ti Wasp and Lucid Truth
*Pick one between Fugitive, R Pro Roc, KC Glo Roc and First Run Buzzz
*Pick up an US mid like a Comet, Fuse, Meteor or Flying Squirrel


Putters:
*pick the one putter that you feel most confident with in the circle, and stick with it. Buy a backup or two if you really like it.
*Repeat above with putter you feel most confident with for approaches and short drives. Maybe you'll find 2, one stable and one less stable. Regardless, minimize putter molds to 2 or 3.

Thank you for making those tough decisions for me. I have a teebird in my stack and i will get that out along with a comet until I can get a meteor but it will not be long until I can get one. Once again thanks for the advice. The changes have already been made.

Glad to help. You can't go wrong with adding a Teebird and Comet!

I have a dynamic discs store close to my house. I will go see if they have them! I have been stalking these forums for quite a while and really needed the advice. It is much appreciated.

Pretty much. Don't get too caught up in what discs are intended to do. If you can get a certain disc to perform well in a certain situation that works and is good for your style of play, stick with it.
