Bag Help Please

I was wondering if you guys could spot any overlapping or holes in my bag. I've been afraid to move to more OS discs for fear of not being able to control them, so that's a likely issue. Anyway, here goes:

Drivers:
Avenger SS
Tourney Boatman
Opto Bolt

Fairway Drivers:
Dx Leopard
Dx Teebird
Star Teebird
Dx Archangel

Midrange:
ESP Buzzz
X Comet
Prodigy M4 Proto 400
Pro D Drone

Putters:
Prodigy PA4 Proto 400
Medium Voodoo
Dx Aviar
Challenger

If weights are needed in order to make judgment, let me know and ill update. Thanks!!

Keep your fairway driver line up. Ditch the drivers and mid slots. Choose two putters out of your putter line up and stick with them.

don't base holes in your bag off of the discs you carry. Base holes in your bag off of throws and distances you struggle with.

Ditch drivers, never ditch a mid range disc. Despite what some poeple on here say, you will learn more about how to shape a shot with a putter or a mid range than you ever will with a driver, if you are gonna keep a driver a fairway is best. But never abandon mid range disc, they will improve you game. Though this may not have been the intent, Hornets Nest in Charlotte is a skill test of mid range discs. It plays long, but with the proper par, if you can use a panther, a flat top rock, a buzz, a San Marino Roc, a pig, a gator, and anything else in the mid range range....you can score well.

I have a weak arm, I throw 300 with a driver at best. But I can keep pace because I know how to use a mid range disc, I am also good at approach which brings in the pig, the xd and many other discs. I throw side arm mainly, and don't get out past 300' normally. But I can keep pace with almost anyone because I have played Hornet's Nest daily for the last 5 years, and it made my weak arm learn to use a mid range. Which is why I think Hornet's Nest is the best designed course I have ever played, it does teach you how to play.

I'm not really one to give advice as I'm pretty new, but with the exception of your distance drivers your bag looks a lot like mine. I throw Leo's and Teebirds most of the time and I have a buzzz and comet. About 3 weeks ago a buddy traded me a Challenger and let me tell you it's really changed my game! Depending on the lie and distance of course I pull out the challenger more and more than my buzzz and comet now. I've nailed some great birdie putts from way out there. There is one difficult hole on my course that I use it to tee off with. Trust that challenger man. It's a great disc! anyway enough of my challenger love.

Drop the boatman and avenger ss..and choose one putter mold that you can drive, approach, and putt with. And pick between the comet and m4.

You sure do like understable discs... I say ditch the drivers except maybe the Avenger SS. Too much crossover between that and the Archangel, but with the Avenger being in better plastic I'd probably choose that. Keep both Teebirds. Star can fill the semi-overstable slot for you. Buzzz is irreplaceable, Drone is overstable, Comet is a must... I'd keep this lineup:

Avenger SS (straight at first, beats to super understable)
Leopard (It's a Leopard. Duh)
Star Teebird (Kind of overstable)
DX Teebird (Dead. Nuts. Straight. Then flippy.)
Buzzz (It's a Buzzz. Duh)
Comet (Understable)
Drone (Overstable)
Whatever putter you like best

Pick one putter you do best with & get one(or more) backup for it. Pick one mold of putter for just driving/approaches. Next choose between the M4 & Comet. Also get a better plastic Drone so it stays overstable for you for a long time(or get a Gator). Also get another Buzzz. Choose between your Archangel & leopard for understable duties(I recomend the Leopard in a higher end plastic). Also lose the DX Teebird(your Star Teebird is just fine, if anything get another better plastic Teebird). Lose the Bolt it's most likely to "big" of a disc for you being a Speed 13) I recomend getting a Roadrunner in Star or Champ instead of your Avenger SS. Also for drivers stay away from low end plastic(unless you cycle them). Get multiple copies of the discs you like. Another option for your Mids is just say screw all your mids & just cycle some discs like a Roc or a disc similar to a Roc(good way to "disc down"). No matter what discs you decide to get make sure you stay consistent with your weights & use max weight putters.

thanks for all of the input fellas! I've ditched the drivers, but picked up a couple Discmania PDs for overstable duties. For mids, I've gotten down to the M4 and Buzzz.

Definitely going to look into some higher end plastics of the teebird and maybe the leopard. Broke my putters down to just the Challenger, but keep the PA4 in there for approaches and some drives.

If anyone has anything else to add let me know!
