DX Eagles. I consider taking a DX Eagle through its entire life cycle an excellent primer in learning how discs fly.

Star Eagles are pretty sweet too.

I'm not really a "cycle" advocate because it apparently takes work and it's not the kind of work I want to do. But... Teebirds are awesome, and if you wanted you could cover a wide variety of shots. For beef use Star and Champ, and for less beef use DX, which would actually cycle, or even GStar. That said, I bag exactly one Teebird, and only own one other for backup.

Distance Driver? Destroyers start all over the place but you can cycle Star and Pro in one season.
Control Driver? PD you can cycle and bag S-line, and P-line (P-line just went OOP though).
Fairway Driver? Teebird and FD. You can cycle Star and DX (S-line and D-line for Discmania) in one season.

Really you can cycle anything. If you look on the forum you'll find people that cycle all kinds of unconventional discs, Gators, Banshees, Firebirds. Someone probably cycles Grooves.

Baseline plastic cycles fast, Star takes a season usually but you can see the difference. Champ/Lucid/Elite Z take absolutely forever to cycle but most people fall in love with a beat in favorite.

It requires throwing frisbees, and maybe buying/trading for used frisbees, and nothing else.

That’s the kind of work I like to do.

Everything? I honestly can't think of a disc worth bagging that I wouldn't cycle. Then again I don't bag overmolds and I don't even know how or if overmolds wear so maybe there is that?

I will second the Eagle suggestion

Dx for stable to US shots
Star/Champ for more OS work

OLFs are good too...

The OLF has piqued and held my interest. Having a hard time finding one thats already got a little love on it though. Not a super common disc in my neck of the woods.
