What "slots" do you consider necessary

I'm in the process of rebuilding my game around rocs again and it got me to thinking about the various slots that I have in my bag.

I'm just curious which slots you consider vital, and which are more fluff.
For me, I like to carry something like this:

Putters:
-putting putter(s)
-OS/fade driving putter
-straight driving putter

MIDS:
-beefy wind/utility/spike hyzer mid
-straigt with strong fade mid
-straight with mild fade
-straight with little/no fade

Fairways:
Same four as my MIDS

Max D:
-OS but not meat hook
-straight with turn and fade

For me this set up has been yielding solid results but I do see some shuffle room in there for other options. How would you change your list of vital disc roles?

Thanks for your input!

You've got it pretty much covered. I like to keep my molds to an OS/S/US slot for each category. That should cover any shot you need, and you become very confident with how your discs fly as you throw them often instead of waffling between overlapping molds. KISS is the way I roll, minimalization is best IMO.

A flippy distance driver is a must.

Seems like you got all the bases well covered there, except I would agree with Noah above that you should have a very flippy driver for sharp left to right action and possibly backhand rollers. The problem is I'm not very consistent with those types of shots, so I've lost all the flippy drivers I've owned (so many lost sidewinders, dragons and mambas *sigh*). Or gave them away to newbs that need them to throw straight. My Squall is pretty understable and so is my Vision, so I try to put anhyzer on those instead.

I don't have a beefy Mid. I just use my Trident for that which is technically a fairway driver. I also use the OS putter (Breaker) for shorter shots.

The other things I might have are discs that I like to throw forehand, which is basically the "straight with strong fade fairway driver" for me, the Volt. I also throw the Breaker forehand for the rare occasion you need a short forhand approach.

Stable driver
"Flippy" driver
Overstable driver

Stable midrange

Putter of choice.

That's what I throw on 95% of my shots...maybe more. The rest is for getting out of trouble, utility stuff.

I carry 5 molds

Eagle
Firebird
Valkyrie
Buzzz
Wizard
I could really narrow it down to just an eagle and buzz and putter but i like to throw rollers and you just need a firebird for that wind, but 90% i throw an eagle off the tee and so should you

I do adhere to ball golf standard of 14 clubs. I typically carry 3 putters 2 buzzes 2 eagles just in case

See you in emporia

In most, minus absurd, wind conditions, one stable mid can get the job done. As far as a minimalist bag, this is the way to go.
