I'm carrying:
Wrath
Fireball
Tesla (flat CN, OS)
Servo
Relay

For a while I mostly just bagged Craves and Volts and they covered just about everything. Probably helped that one of my cosmic neutron Volts was freakishly overstable.

I'm in the same boat. Or was. I actually dropped my volt. I run:
Wrath
2 insanites
Relay
Crave
Resistor

Uplinks I think we're on the next release, haha I'm kinda passed because I snagged a few but I got em for $35 CAD.. And I remember seeing that so soon on them.

The Volt/Tesla lineup is solid but kinda redundant depending on your weights there's overlap. Tesla is the most underrated single driver option ever made... you can run a full bag with a 145 fission/157 neutron/165 fission/150 plasma/+ everything else 170+ in whatever plastic :D the tesla has more turn and more fade

I haven't snagged a 155 volt but it's a solid contender, a 163 fission Volt is about the same as a 157 neutron tesla. A 162 fission tesla is like a seasoned 170 N volt. A 155 plasma volt for whatever reason is a dumpy turd but it fits in next. Kinda, maybe after a fresh 169 cosmic volt but we're getting out of my comfy zone. Ask moose...

Fairways I'm 157ish relay, then 165 N and maybe a cosmic 165 relay. Been just throwing a 163 fission volt after that or my 165 neutron volt. Shelved the teslas for now with the fission volt finds.

Oops I mean 155 plasma tesla is a dumpy turd... :D

2 Hokom Craves
2 Servos
2 Resistors
Clash
2 Insanities
Fireball

Too many. The lighter Crave and Insanity are probably coming out.

Whaaaaat!!! The insanity is my max D for the winter... that's not a fairway driver! You can't take it out because I love mine.. :D

It's also the only one I bag out of your list haha

I guess 9's either a fast fairway or a slow distance driver depending on how you squint. I only said I'd take one out. I think mine are 161/2 and 172/3ish. The lighter one is occasionally brilliant but mostly infuriating. I'm *positive* that the fault's mine, but the disc can't take the thrower out of the bag.

And I will say that they're sneaky long. I have a trio of Waves at the top of my useable speed, but there are moments where the Insanity will find its happy place and just glide. Really fun to watch.

I (obviously) adore their 6.5 speed stuff in the woods. Similar story with the Craves. The lighter one is occasionally brilliant but mostly infuriating. But when it's right...

Thanks for all the fairway replies! It was helpful to see what other people are throwing. I'll try my bag out with crave-class and volt-class fairways. The wrath seems redundant with volts and traces as well.

For a very short while I was bagging Wrath, Volt, Crave. I dropped the Volt because it was so similar to the Wrath and the Wrath has 2 major advantages. It's easier to find in mid to low 160s weights, which I prefer for my drivers, and it's got cool colored rims that pop instead of black that liked to hide.

The old PP Craves were also my staple, but they were very similar in stability to my Wrath, so I've adjusted my setup with the most recent run of Hokoms that are closer to the flight numbers. So now I just run 6 discs total.

167 Wrath
161 Hokom Crave
155 Resistor (pp, still beefy)
169 Hex
174 Eclipse 1.0 Envy (approaches)
167 Med E Envy (putter)

I've found with just those 6 discs I can really cover any shot I need.
