Default Bag building challenge

Not sure how many people nerd out on selecting the perfect discs for a minimal but flexible bag setup, but it's been an obsession of mine for a while. So I'm interested in seeing what other folks would do with my constraints.

The rules:

1. Nine molds maximum: putting putter and two each of throwing putters/tweeners, mid, fairway, and distance.

2. Can carry at most two different plastics for each mold.

3. In each category (mid, fairway, etc.), all molds must have the same rim width. (This is the hard part.)

4. The discs in each category should cover every shot from under to overstable.

5. Optional condition: all molds in each category must be made by the same company.

Here are two examples:

#1
Putting putter: Legacy Clutch
Tweeners: DD Suspect (Lucid, Classic), Axiom Theory
Mids: EMac Truth (Lucid), Truth (Classic)
Fairways: Westside Longbowman (TP), DGA Pipeline
Distance: DD Trespass (Lucid, Biofuzion)

#2
Putting putter: Wizard
Throwing putters: Prodigy PA1 & PA4
Mids: Prodigy M2 & M4 (or Discmania MD3 & MD)
Fairways: Legacy Rival & Phenom
Distance: Westside Giant & King

Look forward to seeing any responses, or if I'm out on this OCD island by myself.

Okay, I'll give this a whirl.

Throwing Putters: Reptilian Disc Golf Fossil Scale, RDG Fossil Serpent
Mid-Ranges: Discraft Z Buzzz OS, Discraft FLX Buzzz
Fairways: Legacy Pinnacle Rival, Legacy Icon Patriot

That was tougher than I thought...especially the mids!

I'm trying to get this perfect, I have a couple more discs in the bag but those are utility and I barely throw em.

Putter:
Pure
Approach:
Nova & Harp
Mids:
Beat in Gold Compass & Buzzz OS
FD's:
Beat in Frost River & River Pro
CD's:
Beat in Gold Saint Pro & Fresh Opto Saint Pro
DD's:
Beat in Opto Flow & Fresh Opto Flow.

These are the discs I throw multiple times every round, could even do without the Flow's on my local mostly wooded course.

Ps. I got an 330' arm, with more speed things would go towards more OS I bet.

Strangely, the Buzzz and Buzzz OS have different rim widths (1.2 v. 1.3).

I don't know anything about RDG. What are the Scale and Serpent like?
