Default Take my bag and convert it to one company

This is not a bag critique thread, or else I would have posted it there. If anything, I want you to take what I would consider a line-up capable of tackling any course within my skill set and then convert it all to one company, if you can.

The simple rule is a one for one disc swap until you have all one manufacturer of your choice in my bag. If there is unfortunately not a disc in that manufacturer's line-up, then delete the slot. If you truly believe that the equivalent replacement creates too much of an overlap, then I will allow you to delete that slot as well. Otherwise, try to keep it one for one. Again, this is not a critique of what I believe is a complete and solid bag for my game.

I am very interested in seeing what you can come up with. Who knows, maybe I might take one of your suggestions.

Quick stats:

420 maximum distance
370-390 controlled/ accurate maximum distance
350 distance I convert from fairway driver to maximum distance driver
280-300 average where I convert from midrange to fairway driver
200 where I consider starting to throw mids

RHBH 99% of the time. I only throw forehand to save my life. I have a fairly accurate thumber but only throw tomahawks and rollers for fun.


PUTTERS:
Dynamic Soft Warden for putting and short approaches
Dynamic Fuzion Judge for driving and long approaches
Discraft ESP Zone for hard fading putter drives

MIDRANGES:
MVP Eclipse Tangent for long, gliding straight to slight turnover drives
Discraft Z Buzzz for line shaping drives in the woods
Discraft Z Nebula for (semi) open field stable midrange drives. During the winter I am using fresh KC Pro Rocs in this slot so I do not lose my Nebulas.
Discraft Z Hornet for low and fast midrange drives in the woods

FAIRWAY DRIVERS:
Innova Champion Roadrunner for soft fairway throws in the woods. Also good for last second turns
Innova Champion Leopard for line shaping in the woods
Innova Star Gazelle for workhorse wooded drives and line drives
Innova Champion TL only in until I season up my 12x Champ TeeBirds
Innova Champion TeeBird (semi) open field precision and max distance when I am not feeling the wide rimmed drivers
Discraft Z Predator like the Hornet it is hardly used, but I trust it and I am glad I carry it. Great for spike hyzers and for when my 12x Champ TeeBirds finally season in.
Latitude Opto XXX for thumbers and ultimate wind fighting precision

MAXIMUM DISTANCE DRIVERS:
Westside VIP Sword simply an awesome maximum distance disc with equally awesome control for such a disc
Innova Echo Star Destroyer for when I need a little more lateral movement or I want to squeeze out more than what my Sword can accomplish


As you can see, quite a mix. I am a little heavy on Discraft mids and Innova drivers. So how would you convert it?

Avenger ss to replace RR

XL and XS, maybe undertow to replace gazelle and leo

Tracker to replace TL-TB

Avenger to replace TB

Xtreme to replace xxx, could also consider a venom or flick

If I had to pick one company I would pick innova...

Aviar for putts
Rocs for mids
Leo/teebird for fairways
Tern for your VIP king
Destroyer you are using

For utility discs get a gator for your zone, firebird for your pred, and a keep your gazellE

But as always why stick to one brand? If anything I would just try to cut down on your molds. You don't need more than 3 discs for each slot.

For example. You need understable stable and overstable for all shots. So 3 for mids, 3 for fairways, and 3 for max d. And you are set. And don't be afraid to break a disc in. Rocs are so great because they move from overstable to understable with time. Right now you have to many molds with overlapping discs

Actually I do not. There might be some minor overlap with some shots between the Sword and Destroyer and then again with the Leopard and the Roadrunner, but as far as my throwing style goes and how I have specific roles for them, I really do not have overlap.

There are a few discs that are in there for specific holes I play only on a semi-regular basis, but this is my big bag that carries everything for every situation. My medium size bag carries four molds less.

But that is neither here nor there. I am challenging the forum to show me a whole manufacturer's bag with these specified stabilities and roles.

Westside VIP Sword simply an awesome maximum distance disc with equally awesome control for such a disc
Innova Echo Star Destroyer for when I need a little more lateral movement or I want to squeeze out more than what my Sword can accomplish
Putters:
MVP Ion does it all, one of my favorite driving putters also but i always use it for approaches

Midranges:
MVP Tangent beat in and abused so it has more turn, always good to have a flippy mid-range that doesn't turn&burn easily
MVP Tangent fresh like you said straight to slight turning drives
MVP Axis to replace the buzzz for line shaping
MVP Vector to replace Nebula/Roc its like a flat top roc with premium plastic, i use it on most of my drives.
MVP Tensor in place of the Hornet and Zone because it resists turn so much while being able to crank it hard, amazing for low power lines. Most cases would work in place of a zone even though its a lot faster.

Fairway Drivers:
MVP Amp in place of the roadrunner and leopard, especially for those last second turns and line shaping
MVP Servo in place of the gazelle
MVP Neutron Volt in place of TL
MVP Proton Volt in place of teebird
MVP Shock very similar to a predator, also a great wind fighter
MVP Resistor great wind fighter and not too beefy, its not as much fade as the XXX but serves its purpose just as well.

Max Distance Drivers:
Who needs distance drivers?

Obviously your entire bag could be Innova/Discraft/Swedish and you'd have no real problems but one disc that doesnt get a ton of love or recommended often is the champion cobra with the dx stamp. It's one of the best discs ive ever thrown when talking about right to left movement (RHBH). It TURNS, and always comes back, you can carve some crazy lines with that thing. The mini swoosh star cobras have fade but I dont think they turn as much which is why I dropped them as my line shaping mid. The DX has awesome glide and hyzer flip capability but doesnt like to come back. I carry one champ and two DX, love them.

not really sure why you just want one company, when 3 work together and co exist to bring the best discs on the market (my opinion of course)
