Default If You Could Only Carry 5 Discs - Which Do you Choose and Why?

Imagine you are about to play a tournament and, for some bizarre reason, rules state you can only play 5 discs. Which 5 would you choose, and why?

My picks:

1. All Purpose Driver: MVP Wave - middle of the road stable and my best distance disc

2. Over Stable Driver: Latitude64 Bolt - for when I need a lot of fade at the end or to hyzer bomb

3. Under Stable Mid Range: Westside Hatchet - thrown flat this disc just wants to go to the right without turning over more than any other disc I've thrown

4. Stable Mid Range: Innova Gator - it just works for me, okay?

5. Putter: Discraft Soft Banger GT - rubbery grip plus wide groove thumb fits in, just a great putter

vip - sword - slicin and dicin

med - o-lace - rubbery beef

recycled mace - i can putt in a pinch with this otherwise nice and workable midrange

esp Zone - it is like a mid range, and i putt better with thin/flat discs

swan 1 reborn - need that anny in there somewhere

i did something similar today. only i had 7 discs, and found what doesnt work well for a particular course if i only could bag a few.

Nova. Putter and main upshot disc

Leopard3. Go to driver.

Thunderbird. Distance, control and wind.

Faf firebird. Thumbers, skips, flex shots and oh shiznit saves.

And next would depending on the course be a ghost/roc or destroyer.

I usually rock only 1-3 or 10ish or the full bag. Id like to have all six discs.

Anode: Putter du jour
KC Roc: Stable mid
Glide: understable mid/fairway
Fury: distance driver/anny
Thunderbird: reliably stable

I'd pass on the overstable discs and may regret it, but need those 5...

This guy gets it. I'll take a wizard instead of a KC aviar, and either a scale or a whippet over a firebird. But essentially the same.

Just did this a few days ago for a work trip.

Zero Soft Pure
X Buzzz (beat)
Star Teebird (beat)
Star Valkryie
Star Firebird

Only used the Valk a few times. If it were a really open course I'd put a G* Destroyer in instead of the Valk.
