Speed 9s go 20-30ft farther than teebs.
We throw about the same distances and I ended up keeping the Flow (speed 11) in my bag as I intended to disc down to speed 9.
A beat in max weight or one below 170g is rather easy distance but with minimal turn.

I actually find it so controllable and predictable that it will kick my Saint in the face as the SE Explorer got it in the groin...

Disc down to three speed 7 and two or three (if you can find a poptop for headwind) Flow. I got a decodye Spark in there to seem cool but that's all my seven drivers.
Last weekends tournament felt great, no disc selection, always knew which one that was most likely to get there (wooded course so I used the Flow on 2 holes, the River on 4 and the SE Explorer on 6).

Having done this very experiment last spring, I had:

Drivers (weight/plastic/model/(condition)/use):
175 Luster PD (9/10) long hyzers, max d FHs.
171 Champ ThunderBird (9/10) headwind driver, BHs that have to end left
175 Star Sidewinder (8/10) max d BHs, can touch 350'
171 Star FireBird (9/10) headwind FHs, FireBird stuff
175 Champ Flat Top FireBird (9/10) Spikes, FH Rollers, Thumbers, fast and hard fading FHs
173 Lucid Escape (9/10) Tommys, long and straight BHs
172 VIP Stag (9.9/10) I just got this disc but it seems to be very versatile and could replace my Escape and ThunderBird and possibly some of my 7 speeds
170 Champ TeeBird (8/10) tight FHs, 330' and fade
165 Opto River (7/10) anny BHs, hyzeflips
175 Star Leo3 (8/10) more stable River, line shaping
175 Luster FD (8/10) similar to the TeeBird but with less fade and a bit of turn
171 Star Eagle-X (6/10) OS line shaping, can throw it 340 and still end up with fade
175 Champ Eagle-X (9/10) FH line shaping, flex FHs, shows very little turn on a full rip
156 Star Leo (9/10) LH disc, super fun RHBH hyzerflip disc

Mids:
180 Shimmer VRoc3 (9/10) mid that can hold a line, straight control shots
176 Fuzion Verdict (9/10) straight to fade, FHs, hyzer approaches, mid that won't turn
180 Shimmer Roc3 (9/10) mid range drives, main mid
180 McPro Roc3 (7/10) straight mid
171 Champ Roc3 (7/10) back up to both Roc3s and MD3
180 C-MD3 (8/10) fan grip FHs, similar to the Shimmer Roc3 but beadless
175 MFC Gator (9/10) Hyzers, windy putter, Gator stuff

Putters:
171 JK Aviar (6/10) approach putter
175 JK Aviar (7/10) driving putter
171 JK Aviar (5.5/10) main putter
175 GStar Rhyno (San Marino) (8/10) FH putts, hyzer putts, Rhyno stuff, LHFH

I had quite a selection of molds due to throwing both BH and FH, but I could've probably gotten by with far fewer discs than what is posted, the Stag did kick my ThB and Escape, I have only 3 of those discs still in my bag.

Never tried DX Thunderbirds, though it seems like people like a certain batch of them. After cracking a new DX Valkyrie on a tree about 250' away, I decided not to throw any DX higher than speed 7 (because DX Teebirds are great.)

I mean, a champion beast is one of my favorite straight to understable 10 speed discs. Tons of glide.

I bet that's the closest to the Flow in flight, looks really tasty. Starts out fairly stable?

The Mamba is by far Innova's longest speed 11 or below disc. Again, I can't call it controlled distance. If you throw a Mamba poorly it might leave the zip code and be 900' right of your intended target.
And the Champs are nowhere near -5.
