Default I think I have way too many mid-range discs...

I'm relatively new (about 4 months now) and have acquired about 10-11 discs. Out of these 7 are mid-range discs. Can someone tell me which I can afford to loose? I'm thinking the Mako (I don't like how it throws anyway). I like the Star Stingray due to the fact t seems to be my straightest and the Champ Stingray flies well too. Any advice would be appreciated as would advice on other discs I could use. Thanks!

it's hard to tell you what you don't need when we don't know all that you throw and how far you throw them

you say you have 7 mids of which 1 is Mako and 2 are Stingrays

what are the other 4

(p.s. this would probably be better in the bag critique section)

At 4 months in, most here will suggest you play with a putter only, or a putter and 1 mid. This strategy will help you to have a more consistent grip, release, and throw and will teach you to be able to work your plastic, shaping multiple lines with the same disc.

Pick the most neutral mid you have and use that. (By posting a list of what you own, we can more accurately help you to choose the one to use right now.)

i think its important to have at least 3 mid range disks on that is overstable one that is understable and one that you can throw straight. just make sure that you can control all 3. so you can get them right under the chains. also remember some plastics are more overstable then others so keep that in mind
hope that helps

I'm not sure exactly how to move this right now. I also have a DX Roc, A Quest Rock-it, a Buzz SS elite-Z, and a DX Stingray that I found.

What are you using your mids for? How far are you throwing them? Start with getting rid of the ones you don't like (like the Mako), then think about how you use your mids and pick the best disc for each shot. Do the three Stingrays do the same thing? How beat in is your Roc? And what in the world is a Rock-it? (I know nothing about Quest disc, if you couldn't tell ).

I can't fault anyone for having a ton of mids -- up until recently, I had two Sharks, an Element, a Buzzz, a Hornet, and a Cro in my bag.

The mids go about 200-225 for me. The Rock-It was given to me but it does fly pretty well, as was my 2 drivers and the DX Stingray I found in the woods in pretty good condition after I got the other two. The Roc was one of the first discs I bought but haven't used it much. Its slightly beaten right now.
