I need suggestions on keeping my bag simple

I am entering my third year of disc golfing and have been taking it pretty serious the last year and a half. I have recently started the process of throwing fewer molds but in different plastics and conditions. Heres a list of my main throwers:
Putters:
Classic Aviar (inside the circle)
Soft Magnet (outside the circle and upshots)
Midranges
ESP Supercolor Buzzz (straight flyer with no low speed fade at all)
Star Shark (understable)
DX Shark (stiff with alot of fade)
Fairway Drivers
Star Leopard (understable)
Z Stalker (straight with little fade)
Distance drivers
Champion Wraith (straight with medium fade)
DX Wraith (understable)

What Im considering
Star FL
Z Buzzz
Star Teebird or Champion TL

Id appreciate if you could suggest any others to try out, give suggestions on removing overlap in my bag, and telling me if what im considering is good to try.

Yeah, something utility along the lines of a Firebird, or even a Whippet, might help. Otherwise you're pretty well covered.

This setup looks really simple as is. I would drop the sharks and add in the Z Buzzz. Buzzzes fly similarly to Sharks and are available in more plastics, so you can do more with one mold.

I find the teebird to be a bit more versatile than the stalker. I'd say go with one or the other, but not both. The leo is a nice understable compliment.

That bag (aviar, magnet, buzzz, tb, leo, wraith) is a really simple and versatile bag. It will be great for honing your shot shaping skills. You can do a wide range of things with that set up. As you develop your game, you mind find a need for some additional specialty molds, especially really overstable or understable ones. But as a simple beginner bag, this is great.

Lose one of the putter molds and maybe pick either the shark or the buzzz to have in a couple diff plasitcs/stages of wear.. Like already said, the z buzzz will have quite a bit more low speed fade and it pretty workable.
An overstable driver may be nice to have as well... maybe something moderately fast, but still controllable like a firebird?

OP here
I carry more discs, but dont throw them near as often as these molds, probably my most commonly used aside from all these are:
X Stratus (for rolling), Champion Beast (fairly beat in, straight driver), and a Star Monster which is incredibly beat in and is straight from start to finish with the smallest hint of fade

DX Shark (stiff with alot of fade) maybe drop these Sharks for Buzzzes like homeboy posted
Fairway Drivers
Star Leopard (understable)
Z Stalker (straight with little fade) these molds can overlap a lot. With good form, a Stalker doesn't fly that much farther than a Buzzz so maybe drop it for a Champ Leo or JLS, Teebird, Eagle, etc for more versatile fwy drivers.
Distance drivers COLOR="blue"]very solid[/COLOR]
Champion Wraith (straight with medium fade)
DX Wraith (understable) [

What Im considering
Star FL nah
Z Buzzz yeah
Star Teebird or Champion TL yeah
You only have a small hole in the bag in terms of an overstable driver. I'd go slow with a Banshee, Whippet, or Trident or if you want something more meathooky Firebird, Pred, xXx, etc.

What would you suggest? small bead? big bead? I was thinking about either an R-Pro or a JK Pro myself.

The Omega SS is a SB Aviar in a R-Pro type plastic, which would fit what your looking for.
