Default If you could only use 5 discs for a round

If you could only choose 5 discs to build a bag what would you choose and why?

175g Eraser Wizard: I putt, approach, and tee-off with Wizards. Unless there's a headwind, I'm throwing this for any shot below 225 feet.

180g DX Roc and 175g S-Line FD: These two discs can be manipulated to cover nearly any line that I need to hit from 225 to 330 feet. I'd go with a slightly beat-in Roc and a fresh FD.

170g G* Valkyrie: Max controlled distance. For me, this fits the "flippy Destroyer" slot. Super reliable hyzer-flip s-lines to around 350-360 feet. Also a great disc for dead-straight, low-to-the-ground 300-foot forehands that woods courses so often demand.

175g Sexton Firebird: Gotta have something overstable in the bag to trust in a headwind and throw for sweeping flex lines, spike hyzers, and skip shots. Plus, I can power down on a Firebird to cover most of the shots I'd typically throw with a Harp or MD5. (In this hypothetical five-disc scenario, though, I'm already missing my Harp...)

Anode - anything/everything if wind isn't a factor
Verdict - can take FH approaches/drives as well as power BH shots that the Anode can't handle
FD - can power down for straight midrange shots or any angle fairway shots
Thunderbird - versatile BH/FH, can handle Teebird like shots to Firebird like shots in a pinch
Wraith - versatile on any line BH/FH and wide power range

1. Multi-purpose putter: I like the Proxy for this. I putt with this. I upshot with this. My favorite overall disc.
2. Mid: Roc all day.
3. Understable Fairway: I like the Glide for this. Great for standstill shots, patent pendings, tight tunnels, and anhyzers.
4. Overstable Fairway: For me this is the Clash. Great for flick upshots, spike hyzers, skip shots, windy upshots.
5. Controllable D: This is the slot that I bounce around the most on. Lately I have been favoring a pro wraith. It is trustworthy in the wind (for my form), gives great distance without wandering, but doesn't fade too hard. Nicely balanced disc.

If you will permit me a 6th disc, I will add the Opto River. In calm conditions, this is my go-to. And that is my bag

I would get a 1st run Ion, a 2001 USDGC Roc, a CE Teebird, a Protostar Destroyer, and a Champion Groove. I would throw the Groove all the time and talk about how great a disc it is.

The best thing about this is you'd have those four extra discs you could throw for risky water situations.
