Default Off season bag pondering....

Rethinking what's in my bag for 2018. I don't want to make too many modifications, maybe: taking a or two discs away, adding a disc or two or swapping a couple out.
Here's what I threw for the second half of 2017... (Overstable-->Understable)

Putters:
S-Line P2 (175)-- throwing
X2 D-Line P2 (175)-- putting
Mids:
MF champ gator (175)
Z Drone (175)
X2 Champ roc3 (175/178)
Star mako3 (180)
Fairway:
Champ roadrunner (175)-- roller
X2 star teebird (169/175)
S-Line Pd (169)
C-Line Fd3 (175)
Distance Drivers:
MF C-Line PD2 (175)
S-Line PD2 (175)
Pro Destroyer (175)
Bottom stamp Star Destroyer (167)
Blizzard Destroyer (156)
Star Shryke (169)
Champ Mamba (165) -- super flippy roller

Average distance
Putters 250-275
Mid 300-325
Fairway 325-340
Distance Drivers 340-360


Any thoughts ideas or suggestions would be very beneficial.

Can you do a forehand throw and How good is yours? midrange discs are all overstable.

Yes I can throw forehand. Blizzard destroyer and shryke is typical go tos for distance. Average forehand for them are about 330-340. Not quite as accurate as backhand though

Overall just a little less distance than backhand, not even enough to disc down. mako3 is go to for forehand approach, while roc3 is backhand.

I actually forgot to add I carry an beat in overmolded champ Roc 175 that's pretty understable. In between mako3 and lighter weight roc3

Couple thoughts: the Gator and Drone offer much difference? How about the PD2s and bottom stamped Destroyer? Pro/Blizzard Destroyer and Shryke?

Feel like there Possibly a little overlap. Could maybe pair PD2s and Shrykes for DDs. And drop one of the meat hook mids. Otherwise I’d say it’s a well set up bag!

Thanks for the comments. Yea I do see some overlap, too...

1) The S-Line PD2 and Pro Destroyer and pretty similar. Pro Destroyer is a little more understable. I'm dropping one, for sure.
2) The bottom stamped destroyer is really beat and is stable. Somewhere between the Blizzard Destroyer and S-Line PD2/Pro Destroyer.
3) The Drone flyes farther than the Gator. I throw alot of mids, like that little versatility. But they are very close. I agree, I'll have to go out to the field and see which one I like the best. Thinking Gator gets used more often.

I would recommend moving away from the drone. Discraft seems to be wanting it to go OOP, and replace that slot in their line up with a BuzzzOS. It may be worth a shot to try something else to see if it is a reliable replacement. Another option would be the Justice from DD.

I would also recommend going to either PD's or Destroyers. It will simplify the amount of thinking you have to do on the course.

Also, if you are heavy FH thrower, try a zone in either Zflex or ESP. You might be surprised to find that you could drop the gator, while keeping a drone, without having to worry about ranging the gator down in power as much.

Someone else asked about your forehand throws, and I'm curious too. I'd say there's nothing wrong with your bag, aside from the multitude of traditionally stable/OS discs. It might seem like you're missing some slots if you were to chart out your bag like this:

Throwing putters:
OS
S
US

Mids:
OS
S
US

Fairways:
OS
S
US

etc


However, if you're not a big fan of flippy plastic it's no big deal.

Thanks for the comments. I actually just learned to throw forehand this year and wow does it make a difference. There are a couple holes at my local courses where there was no way you can reach with a rhbh, even anhyzer, all these gardian trees. That even now at a 340-350 forehand it is much more simpler!

I do carry a couple understable discs ex roadrunner, mako3. For some reason I don't care for them, I can't seem to get them to do what I want. They either get blown around in the wind, overpower them so they leak right into a tree on many of the wooded courses I play, etc..

Is it an issue if I have an ok forehand to carry stable to over stable discs?
Would you recommend carrying a couple understable discs just I'm case? If so what are some suggestions?

I have a 2 beat destroyers that I love for long distance open field shots, but thinking about keeping just those, putting the others aside and getting another pd.
