Lemonadestandguy's bag

I feel like my bag is pretty set and covers most shots. but I'm always open to suggestions for improvement. about to add a zone for the over stable putter shot but other than that this is what i got.
Years playing/experience: DG 1 year 10 months
Right/left-handed/ambidextrous: left-handed
Throwing Style: LHBH, LHFH, no OH
Golf Distance (avg/max*) for putter/mid/driver: Aviar: 250/300'; Roc: 310/340'; Leopard: 340/370'; Destroyer 380/400'

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


Optional:
Age: 21
Sex: M
Injuries/handicaps?: Random back spasms, Left handed?

Other sport proficiencies?: Baseball, racquetball, golf

Additional Information: the discs that get the most use in my bag are my putters and my destroyers. just the way the courses are in my area. i have more control with valks than destroyers so wooded drives i throw those. mids are not used nearly as much as my putters are though i want to change that. all my shots are thrown with a modified power grip except for shots under 100 ft.

What do you like/dislike about your current bag?: covers all shots i seem to need without carrying a whole bunch of molds, stable upshot and mids are always switching.

Specific areas of desired feedback: Gaps if you see any, unnecessary and overlap.

Immediate and long-term goals: move up to open and be able to play all of the "full bag of trick" shots that most of them have. master a tomahawk and a BH roller (forehand and thumber rollers work well for me for get out of trouble under 150)


Bag:

Drivers (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):
170 SDS destroyer 8/10 forhand and massive headwind disc
170 *DS destroyer 9/10 overstable control for moderate winds/hard fade shots
175 E*DS destroyer 7/10 long flex shots with a hard fade.
175 *D destroyer 7/10 big turn overs and long tailwind drives
150 blizzard destoyer 7/10 water and risky shots only. trash disc
174 CE valkyrie 8/10 (surprisingly) overstable control driver
175 4x valkyrie 7/10 control big turn overs and hyzer flip straight shots
175 11x champ firebird 7/10 backhand control overstable shots. go to firebird.
175 12x champ firebird new run 9/10 stupid overstable shots, hard fade FH.
174 CE eagle x 7/10 stable fairway
175 PB champ leopard 7/10 straight fairway
168 Pro line Leopard fairway turn overs and tunnel big hyzer flips.

Mids:
175 champ gator 8/10 massive overstable
180 dx glow roc 8/10 overstable roc for longer than gator shots
180 11x roc 8/10 straight with a hard fade at the end
179 dx roc 7/10 straight with slow turn at the end
180 dx roc 5/10 massive turn overs

Putters:
171 11x kc pro aviar 7/10 main putter for all puts in mild to no wind.
175 12x kc pro aviar 8/10 head wind putts and stable putter shots
170 12x kc pro aviar 6/10 dead straight to slight turn putter shots
170 12x kc pro aviar 5/10 putter annys, upshot disc for straight at it runs.

thanks for any help guys.

i tried a drone for a little while, but it was just to fast for me. i love the gator cause i can give it everything i got and still goes nowhere and right. drones glide much further. buzzzes are awesome, just could never get them to fly the super turn overs that i can with these rocs mainly cause i throw a lot of hyzer flips and can't really anny out of my hand with accuracy.

and yes back spasms suck. fine one day, terrible the next. i can't imagine it with knee surgery as well.

Im 23 and I feel like a 60 but it's all about pacing yourself and resting and not going too hard. Everyone of those reasons is why basketball took out my knees. I wrecked my back being a mechanic on printing presses. I need a telemakerter job where I can't hurt myself haha
